On Friday I picked up my Aunt - my father's older sister, visiting from Minnesota - and drove her down to the Lake of the Ozarks region to visit with my parents. And just to let you know which side of the family I got my sense of humor from, here is just about the first observation my Aunt made as we drove off together:
"As we came closer to St. Louis," she said, "I kept seeing these tall, boxy trucks that say 'Christian Disposal' on them. And I thought, 'Gee, this place is really tough on Christians! At least with the lions you had a fighting chance!'"
