Like Father, Like Son? Service is a Family Tradition

My father was very civic-minded. In 1934 he was asked to serve as Rose Festival President -- the same year the festival was originally incorporated.

Forty years later, in 1974, I became the first son to follow his father as board President. I've been a member of the Executive Committee ever since. The Rose Festival is an annual event, which brings the whole community together -- it's one of the last remaining Portland traditions.

For me, the Portland Rose Festival is an important family tradition.

~Hillman Lueddemann (PRFA President, 1974)

"Smoking in the Rain"

Two old ladies were waiting for a bus and one of them was smoking a cigarette. It started to rain, so the old lady reached into her purse, took out a condom, cut off the tip and slipped it over her cigarette and continued to smoke.
Her friend saw this and said, "Hey that's a good idea! But, what is that thing you put over your cigarette?"
The other old lady said, "It's a condom."
"A condom? Where do you get those?"
The lady with the cigarette told her friend that you could purchase condoms at the pharmacy. When the two old ladies arrived downtown, the old lady with all the questions went into the pharmacy and asked the pharmacist if he sold condoms. The pharmacist said yes, but looked a little surprised that this old woman was interested in condoms, so he asked her, "What size do you want?"
The old lady thought for a minute and said, "One that will fit a Camel."

poor,poor Camel :) :)
