A few months ago I shared a silly joke with the RECORDER readers I had some positive feedback. So I thought I would share another bit of humour.

My friend David had a problem last week. He lost his ID. So now we just call him Dave.

This is the last RECORDER until September. I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable summer. I will be collected submissions for this column through the summer so please remember to send your announcements in.

You can send any submissions to me at carmen.swalwell@shaw.ca or 403-560-8431, follow me on twitter @ carmenswalwell or find me on LinkedIn.
