When are you taking off?

as always, the friday before. regardless of distance, it takes us two days. first day is usually 100 to 120 miles, and the second day is the rest. this year, it might be only 60 miles on saturday. i think we have a house in harlan on the way out. THAT makes it better.

you have it backwards. we leave Wed. at noon from Nevada. average 10 - 20 miles the first 3 days and then do 140 on Saturday.

A woman is having an affair during the day while her husband is at work. Her 9 year old son comes home unexpectedly, sees them and hides in the bedroom closet to watch.

The woman's husband also comes home.

She puts her lover in the closet, not realizing that the little boy is in there already.

The little boy says, "Dark in here."

The man says, "Yes, it is."

Boy - "I have a baseball."

Man - "That's nice."

Boy - "Want to buy it?"

Man - "No, thanks."

Boy - "My dad's outside."

Man - "OK, how much?"

Boy - "$250"

In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the lover are in the closet together.

Boy - "Dark in here."

Man - "Yes, it is."

Boy - "I have a baseball glove."

The lover remembering the last time, asks the boy, "How much?"

Boy - "$750"

Man - "Fine."

A few days later, the father says to the boy, "Grab your glove, let's go outside and have a game of catch." The boy says, "I can't, I sold my baseball and my glove." The father asks, "How much did you sell them for?"

Boy - "$1,000"

The father says, "That's terrible to overcharge your friends like
that...that is way more than those two things cost. I'm going to take you to church and make you confess."

They go to the church and the father makes the little boy sit in the confession booth and he closes the door.

The boy says, "Dark in here."

The reverend says, "Don't start that shit again. I had to sell my VW bus to raise the first $1,000"

Hey Rev...I'm not sure of the Ragbray route, but if you swing by the Iowa City area, drop me a line. I'd be happy to feed your team.
