How About a Laugh for Friday!!!

Dr. Epstein was a renowned physician who earned his medical degree in his home town and then left there to live in New York.
Later he was invited to return to his birthplace to give a speech. As he placed his papers on the lectern they slid off onto the floor,    and when he bent over to retrieve them, at precisely the wrong instant, he farted and the microphone amplified it throughout the room.  He was embarrassed but regained his composure to deliver his paper.  As he concluded, he raced out the stage door, never to be seen in his home town again.
Decades later, when his elderly mother was ill, he returned to visit her. He reserved a hotel room under a false name, Levy,  and arrived under cover of darkness.
The desk clerk asked him, "Is this your first visit to our city, Mr. Levy?"
Dr. Epstein replied, "Well, young man, no, it isn't.  I grew up here but then I moved away."
“Why haven't you visited?" asked the desk clerk.
"I did visit once, many years ago, but an embarrassing thing happened and since then I've been too ashamed to return."
The clerk consoled him. "Sir, while I don't have your life experience, one thing I have learned is that often what seems embarrassing  to me isn't even remembered by others.  I bet that's true of your incident too."
Dr. Epstein replied, "Son, I doubt that's the case with my incident."
"Was it a long time ago?"
"Yes, many years."   
The clerk asked, "Was it before or after the Epstein Fart?"

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
