~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
"I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I do not feel it. I believe in God even when He is silent." - Scrawled on a wall where Jews had hidden in WW II

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
STILL MORE CHURCH BULLETIN BLOOPERS
We are pleased with the fundraising effort for the new church van. It has really raised our expectorations for future projects.
Special thanks for those of you who helped grovel the church driveway.
In this month of thanksgiving, the theme is quite fitting because I am thankful to serve in such a losing church.
Sunday's pastor appreciation service was great. Even though October is pastor appreciation month, I want you to know that you make me feel depreciated every month of the year.
The WINGS group annual Holiday Bazaar will be held Saturday, Nov 18, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Tickets are on sale for $5 each and may be purchased from anyone with WINGS.
I really appreciate your generous spirit in not only providing items needed for these kids, but in giving of your time to put them together.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Amorphous, fist-size blob of dough,
The bagel, freshly baked - just so -
With garlic garnish, seeded, salted,
Or with onions can't be faulted.
But eat it quickly, on the fly.
Tomorrow it will petrify.
And then you will be out of luck
(Unless you need a hockey puck).

What's the Social Register and how does one get into it?
Published in local editions beginning in 1887, and nationally since the 1970s, the Social Register records the names of people who "count" in Society, or should I say $ociety? Actually you have to be "refined" as well as wealthy to get in. That usually means old, East Coast money. Newly minted millionaires can fahgedaboutit.
Members of the 30,000 or so families listed can consult the Social Register to find PLU - "People Like Us" - and thus avoid dinner invitations or marriage proposals from those belonging to the wrong clubs. For the rest of us, its utility is confined to providing data about who owns which yacht and cutsiepoo palatial "cottage" at the shore.
Who decides if you are "our kind?" That's kind of a secret. But it helps to know or marry someone already in the book. Say, maybe it should be the anti-Social Register.
