A number of years ago a lighthouse was being built on the rock-bound coast of Wales. When the building was nearly completed, one of the workmen stumbled and fell back through the scaffolding to the rocks below.

The other workmen, shocked at what had taken place, did not dare to look down for fear of being unnerved at the sight. Heavyhearted, they backed down the ladders. But to their surprise and joy they saw their fellow workman lying upon a tuft of grass, shaken and shocked, bruised to be sure, but not seriously harmed. Beside him lay a dead lamb. A flock of sheep had been wandering by, and a lamb had broken his fall.

A Lamb broke your fall!

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


You only know five spices: salt, pepper, Ranch dressing, BBQ Sauce and ketchup.

The mosquitoes have landing lights.

You have more miles on your tractor than your car.

You've taken your kids trick-or-treating when it was 90 degrees outside.

You owe more money on your bulldozer than your car.

The most effective mosquito repellent is a shotgun.

Your leaf-blower gets stuck on the roof.

You find 70 degrees Fahrenheit a little chilly.

You attend a formal event in your best clothes, your finest jewelry, and your Cowboy Boots.

You know 4 seasons - Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer, and Deer Season.

It had been snowing for hours when an announcement came over the intercom: "Will the students who are parked on University Drive please move their cars so that we may begin plowing."

Twenty minutes later there was another announcement: "Will the twelve hundred students who went to move 26 cars return to class?"

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:


Ever wonder why is clockwise Clockwise? As it turns out, for objects in the Northern Hemisphere, shadows cast by the Sun move in a clockwise direction. In fact, the word hour means "the day" or "Sun's path."

Why is clockwise Clockwise?
