I don’t like jail, they got the wrong kind of bars in there.

National Tell A Joke Day 

– United Kingdom & United States


Sitting at a bar in Casa Marina, Dominican Republic a little bird was sampling the drink of the day. When I read the quote by Charles Bukowski this picture was one of the first things that came to mind. Tie in the “National Tell a Joke Day” and it seemed the most appropriate to me.

We may never be able to visit places the same way we did before the COVID-19 Pandemic. I’m so glad I took as many pictures of the places I’ve visited.
