Humor

Everyone likes a joke and a joker. To lighten things up a bit this page will contain a collection of humorous stories and memories I’ve captured along the way. If you can’t have fun, I quit or as someone else said:
It is impossible to live pleasurably without living prudently, and honorably, and justly; or to live prudently, and honorably, and justly, without living pleasurably.”
–Epicurus,
Greek philosopher
