~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind." - Albert Einstein

A family lived off the alley behind my first church. There were three floors to their row house, each floor inhabited by a different generation. The grandparents, who were members of the church, lived on the ground floor. Next floor up was their son and daughter-in-law, and the grandchildren’s bedrooms were at the top.

One day, the grandfather beckoned me to the back fence. “I’m worried about my grandson,” he said.

“What’s the problem?” I asked.

He said, “When he gets up in the morning, he reads the Bible before he does anything else. Every time he sits at the kitchen table, he insists on saying grace. Now he’s talking about joining a prayer group with his girlfriend.”

“Walter,” I said, “what’s the problem?”

“Don’t get me wrong, Reverend,” he said. “Religion is a good thing, as long as it’s in small doses. I’m worried my grandson is becoming an extremist.”

Random Thoughts

They should make duct tape in many colors, so I could repair my carpet.

I think, therefore ... Now how does the rest of that go?

I am an exterminator. God made mosquitoes for the same reason he made roaches - to put food on my table.

If your wife wants to learn to drive, don't stand in her way.

I'm so sick of telemarketers that I've put a recording of a busy signal on my answering machine.

The sign says: "Ears pierced while you wait." Darn! I wanted to leave them and pick them up later.
