Weather report--humorous today--serious tomorrow

Life is getting so busy. Errands here and doctors appointments there. AHHHHHH!
But I am learning to stay focused on the important things--notice that I did get here today to post a little something for you entertainment.
Don't you feel important??
You are.
A friend of mine sent me a little something funny-so I am passing it on.
It is nice to see that in this one Boudreaux is not any more stupid than the rest.
In Louisiana we are not all unintelligent.
After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, California scientists dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, headlines in the LA Times newspaper read: 'California archaeologists have found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.'

One week later, 'The Daily Advertiser', a local newspaper in Lafayette, reported the following:
'After digging as deep as 30 feet in rice fields near Forked Island, Boudreaux, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Boudreaux has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Louisiana had already gone wireless.'

Oh! Too funny, Sharon! Way too funny!

Aorund my town, we have minorcans. Our ancestors were simple country, seafaring folk. They came here in ships from the isle of Minorca, off the coast of Spain. My town use to be very small. And the cathedral that I grew up attending still has a monument that has all the original settlers family names on it. My family name is there. And we are the Florida version of "WheezeeAnnah" folks! So see, we really are cousins! :) I'm sure some of my kin stumbled over to the Big Easy!
