~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Those people who are uncomfortable in themselves are disagreeable to others. - William Hazlitt

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

My one year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel girl, Bailey Jane and I have been involved in pet therapy. At the Sunday chapel service, at the hospital they had several therapy dogs and the service was about the healing power of pets.

They read verses from the bible sang the friendly beast, and so on. All of us were on the alter sitting with our pets.

During the prayer, (we prayed for just about everything), the Chaplain said,

"We pray for world peace."

There was a pause and Bailey Jane gave the loudest, sharpest, clearest one bark that just said AMEN. It was hilarious.

When we made rounds to visit the patients after the service several patients who had watched it on closed circuit TV, said,

"Where's the little darling who wants world peace?"

During mail call one evening at Marine Corps boot camp, I received several letters from home. The drill instructor was getting irritated at having to keep calling my name. "You must have a lot of people at home who like you, huh?" he barked.

"Sir, no, sir!" I shouted.

"Oh, so you're calling me a liar?" goaded the DI.

Trained as a Marine to think quickly on my feet, I yelled out, "Sir, creditors, sir!"

The DI had to leave the room so we wouldn't see him laughing.
