Go Directly To Jail...

Do not pass go.  So finally I'm getting around to posting photos from the last day in San Francisco.  Ashley and I head to Alcatraz!!

After Alcatraz got shut down as a prison in 1963, there was an eighteen month period when some native Americans took over the island.

If you ever get to San Francisco you should definitely take time to see Alcatraz.   Included is an audio tour that walks you through the cellblocks.  Some of the cells are set up the way they would have been when the penitentiary was working.  Here's a little known fact.  A penitentiary is for penance.  There is no hope of rehabilitation.  it is said that those who can't behave in society go to prison.  Those that can't behave in prison go to Alcatraz.  The rock.

You know who was in Alcatraz?  Al Capone.

Miss Bindergarten went with us and got in trouble by stepping out of bounds.  She always seems to get in trouble when we're together.

On the ferry ride back to the wharf we ran into Jackie Onassis!!

Great Joke

A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night to meet and have a dinner with her parents.
Since this is such a big event, the girl announces to her boyfriend that, after dinner, she would like to go out and make love for the first time.

The boy is ecstatic, but he has never had sex before, so he takes a trip to the pharmacist to get some condoms.   He tells the pharmacist it's his first time, and the pharmacist helps the boy for about an hour.  He tells the boy everything there is to know about condoms and sex.

At the register, the pharmacist asks the boy how many condoms he'd like to buy, a 3-pack, 10-pack, or family pack.
The boy insists on the family pack because he thinks he will be rather busy, it being his first time and all.
That night, the boy shows up at the girl's parents house and meets his girlfriend at the door.
"Oh, I'm so excited for you to meet my parents, come on in!"
The boy goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where the girl's parents are seated.  The boy quickly offers to say grace and bows his head.  A minute passes, and the boy is still deep in prayer, with his head down.

Ten minutes pass, and still no movement from the boy.
Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girlfriend leans over and whispers to the boyfriend, 'I had no idea you were this religious.'

The boy turns, and whispers back,
'I had no idea your father was a pharmacist.'
