Recently a DJML couple from Minnesota, ( the names have been left out to 
protect the guilty) decided to go to Florida to thaw out during this years 
particularly icy winter and take in the Dixieland Festival in Pensacola with Norm 
Vickers and friends.  They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent 
their honeymoon 50 years earlier.  Because of their hectic schedules, it was

To:          My Loving Wife
Subject:   I've Arrived

I know your surprised to hear from me.  They have computers here now and 
you're allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones.  I've just arrived and have 
checked in.  I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow.  
Looking forward to seeing you then!  Hope your journey is as uneventful as 
mine was.

P.S.  It sure is hot down here!

Happy Hilarious Holidays
