WITandWISDOM(tm) - October 24, 2006
One hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, how big my house was, or what kind of car I drove. But the world may be a little better, because I was important in the life of a child. - Forest Witcraft

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Our kindergarten class went to the fire station for a tour and some instruction in fire safety. The fireman was explaining what to do in case of a fire.
He said, "First, go to the door and feel the door to see if it's hot." Then he said, "Fall to your knees. Does anyone know why you ought to fall to our knees?"
One of the little tykes said, "Sure, to start praying to ask God to get us out of this mess!"

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
An Argentinean robber was caught after he lost his false teeth during a raid on a house.
Juan Navarro, from Cordoba, saw one of the three masked men who held him up lose his dentures, reports Terra Noticias Populares.
In his hurry to escape with jewelry and cash, the robber left the false teeth behind and Mr Navarro handed them over to the police.
Two days after the robbery, Mr Navarro noticed his own nephew suddenly seemed to have lost his teeth.
A police spokesman said: "Mr Navarro came straight to us and we had the denture analyzed. It turns out it belongs to his nephew.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
On a recent visit, my mother was handed a furiously scribbled page of crooked lines by granddaughter Aubrey.
"Here, Grandma, look what I wrote," Aubrey said proudly.
Grandma peered at the unintelligible lines. "Very nice, Aubrey. What does it say?"
Aubrey shrugged, took the paper, and went to find her mother. "Mommy," she whispered anxiously, "Grandma can't read!"

Well-known for his competency and ingenuity as a carpenter, my husband was fixing our cottage dock. He removed his watch and placed it on the dock so it wouldn't get wet. To make sure it wouldn't fall into the water, he decided to anchor it around a nail. He held the nail against the wood in the center of the band, and with one deft blow he smashed his watch to pieces.
