Getting together

Everybody was excited for a party the Aspen group had on Friday in the Primrose Room. It was a chance for everybody from that wing of the Doak to get together and have a nice lunch.

Joke of the week

A lady was checking out the insane asylum and talking to the doctor. She asked him how they decide who to keep in the asylum.

The doctor said, "Well, we have a standard test. We fill a bathtub up with water, and we give a patient a teaspoon, a cup and a bucket and ask them to empty the tub."

The lady laughed and said, "Well anybody sane like me would know that the bucket is so much bigger than the other two options, it's obvious I would use that."

The doctor shook his head and said, "Anybody sane would pull the plug on the tub. Would you like a room with a window?"
