~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

I think a man and a woman should choose each other for life, for the simple reason that a long life with all its accidents is barely enough for a man and a woman to understand each other; and in this case to understand is to love. The man who understands one woman is qualified to understand pretty well everything. - John Butler Yeats. Letters to His Son

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


The children's pastor at the local mega-church was teaching some children in the Sunday morning children's church a lesson about God and all the animals He had created. He decided to begin his lesson with a riddle: "What is it that collects nuts for the winter, climbs trees, and has a bushy tail?"

An eager little girl near the front waved her hand. The pastor called on her.

"Well," she said, "I know the answer's supposed to be Jesus, but is sure sounds like a squirrel to me."

A little child in church for the first time watched as the ushers passed the offering plates.

When they neared the pew where he sat, the youngster piped up so that everyone could hear; "Don't pay for me Daddy, I'm under five."

I was discussing aviator Amelia Earhart's life with my fifth-grade students. Mentioning that the flier was 40 at the time her plane was lost, I asked the class if they thought 40 was old. "No, I don't," Bonnie said, which made me feel better as I was approaching middle age. Then she added, "Forty is young if you're dead, but old if you're alive." - Jerry Morris in Reader's Digest http:www.readersdigest.com

'Now tell me,' the teacher said at the close of the lesson, 'who will get the biggest crown?'

There was silence for a while then Johnnie replied, 'Him wots got the biggest head!'

The college President hired a new Admissions Administrator. At the conclusion of the interview he said, "Please don't tell anyone what we're paying you."

"Don't worry Sir," the new bureaucrat replied, "I'm as ashamed of my salary as you are."
