After a day of nail biting medical appointments, responsibilities & approaching fatigue, Mom & I are here at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital at the end of a long day. We are beat but as I reach for a magazine she asks me, “what’s to read?” & I spy the latest edition of Upbeat Times. Colorful & whimsical cover art convinces me: “you need this!” I tell her. We read of the Internationally Renowned Accordion Festival in Cotati (who knew?), enjoyed the quotes, &

searched for photos of readers taking the Times with them wherever they may roam! Thank you for the much needed distraction. ~Lisa Hopper, Oakland, CA with mom Sandy Rendahl, Sonoma, CA

JOKES & Humor #3

A father passing by his son's bedroom, was as- tonished to see the bed was nicely made, and everything was picked up. Then, he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow. It was ad- dressed, "Dad." With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter, with trem- bling hands...

"Dear, Dad. It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writ- ing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend, because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mum and you. I've been find- ing real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I knew you would not approve of her because of her piercings, tat- toos, tight motorcycle clothes, and because she is so much older than I am.

But it's not only the passion, Dad. She's pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods, and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children. Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that growing our own food is really easy. We'll be growing it for ourselves, and trading it with the other people in the commune. In the mean- time, we'll hope that science will find a cure for her unique mental depression situation so Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it! Don't worry, Dad. I'm 15, and I know how to take care of myself. Someday, I'm sure we'll be back to visit, so you can get to know your many grandchildren. Love, your son, Joshua. P.S. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at Jason's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the school report that's on the kitchen table. Call when it is safe for me to come home!

The person attempting to travel two roads at once will get nowhere. ~ Xun Kuang
