Blond Mortician

A story about what a blond mortician did that I found on a blog by Pitt Rehab.

A man who just died is delivered to a local mortuary wearing an expensive, expertly tailored black suit.

The female blond mortician asks the deceased's wife how she would like the body dressed. She points out that the man does look good in the black suit he is already wearing.

The widow, however, says that she always thought her husband looked his best in blue, and that she wants him in a blue suit.She gives the Blond mortician a blank check and says, 'I don't care what it costs, but please have my husband in a blue suit for the viewing.'

The woman returns the next day for the wake. To her delight, she finds her husband dressed in a gorgeous blue suit with a subtle chalk stripe; the suit fits him perfectly.

She says to the mortician, 'Whatever this cost, I'm very satisfied .You did an excellent job and I'm very grateful. How much did you spend? To her astonishment, the blond mortician presents her with the blank check. There's no charge,' she says.

'No, really, I must compensate you for the cost of that exquisite blue suit!' she says. Honestly, ma'am,' the blond says, 'it cost nothing. You see, a deceased gentleman of about your husband's size was brought in shortly after you left yesterday, and he was wearing an attractive blue suit.

I asked his wife if she minded him going to his grave wearing a black suit instead, and she said it made no difference as long as he looked nice.'

'So I just switched the heads.'

Road Trip

Summer is winding down, soon the kids will be back at school, and most people will be taking their final week of vacation for the summer.

Some will decide to stay home in what has been dubbed "staycation."

Others will be traveling to celebrate the last weeks of summer.

Most people, including myself, look forward to their final destination. Such as the beach, casino , Disney World, etc.

Most people though dread the road trip to get to your destination. The hundreds of driving miles, road construction, screaming kids, screaming spouse, getting lost. Then you have to make the same trip back when the vacation is over.

There is a certain group of people that truly love the road trip and the destination is secondary.

I discovered a man on YouTube named Freewayjim.

Every year he seems to drive several hundred miles across the Eastern USA traveling through several Metropolitan areas.

Below is a clip he filmed and produced by driving Interstate 76 East through Philadelphia (Schuykill Expressway).
This is the common route to go to the New Jersey shore from Pennsylvania.
