~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Several years ago William F. Merten of Mt. Clemens, Michigan, wrote to Reader's Digest to tell about a memorable argument he had with his wife. The argument was well under way as they left a party one evening. Once they were in the car, words were flying. The area they were driving through was not the best, so they stopped arguing just long enough to lock the doors. Then they started again.
Merton's wife had really worked up a storm, and after a few choice words from him, she shouted, "Stop the car and let me out!"
Merton pulled over to the curb. His wife unlocked the door and got out, but then looked around and got back in again. Looking a little sheepish she said, "Take me to a better neighborhood."
That broke them both up -- and the argument too.
Anger can cause us to do some dumb things.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
He's a wolf in cheap clothing.
It was a case of love at Versailles.
He's got one of those sight-seeing dogs.
My sister has extra-century perception.
A fool and his money are some party.
All's fear in love and war.
Some viruses can lie doormat for years.
To each his zone.
Michelangelo painted the Sixteenth Chapel.
No more negotiating it's a dumb deal.
It's a long road to hold.
All I want from you kids is a little piece of quiet.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
The church choir was putting on a car wash to raise money to pay their expenses for a special trip. They made a very large sign, CAR WASH FOR CHOIR TRIP, and on the given Saturday business was very good. But by two o'clock the skies clouded and the rain poured and there were hardly any customers.
Finally, one of the girl washers had an idea. She printed up an even bigger poster which said, WE WASH (then an arrow pointing skyward) GOD RINSES. Business boomed!
