Oprah and Gayle go Camping Yosemite

Did you watch the recent episode of Oprah who went camping with her good friend Gayle in Yosemite?

Shelton the park ranger in Yosemite National Park wrote to Oprah saying that he wished he saw more African Americans camping and visiting the great outdoors so she did a show on it.
 
I'm as white as they come by color that is but I must say I have wondered the very same thing. How come when I go camping I see mostly white and then many Latino families but after that the numbers go down especially African Americans. 



What are your thoughts ?

Boudreaux and Thibodeaux Camping Joke

I was sent this joke by my friend from New Orleans. Our last name is Boudreaux and my husband is from New Orleans where these jokes go back and forth to see who is less intelligent. My feeling is it's Thibodeaux.

Sounds Like:
Boudreaux: Boo Drow
Thibodeaux: Tib E Dow
CAMPING JOKE:

 Boudreaux and Thibodeaux went camping in the desert.  After they got their tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep.  Some hours later, Thibodeaux woke Boudreaux and said, "Ma sha, look towards da sky, what you see?"

                 Boudreaux replied, "I see millions of stars."

                 "What dat tell you?" asked Thibodeaux.

                 Boudreaux pondered for a minute then said:  "Astronomically speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo.  Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning.  Theologically, mother nature is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.
Whats' it tell you, Thibodeaux?"

                 Thibodeaux says: "Boudreaux, you dumber than cow shit.  It mean somebody done stole da tent!
