Here's a story we posted a few years ago that illustrates the point.
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 04, 2013It's the first Wednesday of the month so, as customary, the residents of Abbey Point gathered this evening at the clubhouse to break bread and exchange views and experiences.
At the conclusion of the evening, our Norwegian neighbor with the impossibly-great head of hair was called upon to pronounce a benediction. He did not disappoint.
"One day he came home from work at 2:30 in the afternoon. His wife, Lena, noticed this and said 'Ole, vy are you home from verk so early?'
"I got my winkie in the pickle slicer."
"'Oh my, that's terrible,' Lena said. 'What happened to the pickle slicer?'
"Oh,' Ole said. 'She got fired too.'"

Wes will be missed. Our thoughts are with his wife of 56 years, Shirley, with him until the end, whose strength and loyalty has been an inspiration to us all.
