To Excel

A German once visited a temple under construction where he saw a sculptor making an idol of God. Suddenly he noticed a similar idol lying nearby. Surprised, he asked the sculptor, "Do you need two statues of the same idol?"

"No," said the sculptor without looking up, "We need only one, but the first one got damaged at the final stage."

Bay Cruise

On Wednesday we leave to begin our annual bay cruise. We have lots of stops to make and there are activities that we will all enjoy. The very best part of the cruise is getting together with our friends who love to boat. What we are doing is camping out on the water, with lots of comforts of home. All our boats have staterooms, heads with a shower, and a full galley. It's in a smaller area but we have all the comforts of home. Along with those things we have heat and air conditioning. So we are pretty comfortable for the entire cruise.

The Anniversary

While enjoying an early morning breakfast in a northern Arizona cafe, four elderly ranchers were discussing everything from cattle, horses, and weather, to how things used to be in the "good old days.

Eventually the conversation moved on to their spouses. One gentleman turned to the fellow on his right and asked, "Roy, aren't you and your bride celebrating your fiftieth wedding anniversary soon?"

The Sermon

This guy suffers from a sort of forgetfulness.

On a bright afternoon he goes to the church. He is half asleep and oblivious to the precious sermon being delivered by the priest. The priest preaches, "Thou shalt not steal". Suddenly our guy looks around and finds that his umbrella is missing.

I will never forget.

Let the world always remember,
That fateful day in September,
And the ones who answered duties call,
Should be remembered by us all.

Murphy's Law

Law of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to go to the rest room.

Law of Gravity - Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.

Law of Probability - The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.

Silly Friday

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

He who laughs last, thinks slowest.

Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

Labor Day

I wish all my buddies a very happy Labor Day. May this great country turn around to more prosperous times. I pray for all those that have lost their jobs and their homes.

Our leaders need to quit finger pointing and playing the blame game and work together to create jobs. I'm talking about both sides of the aisle here. America needs their help desperately.

A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits.

The store owner listened to the following conversation.

The boy said, "Lady, I want to cut your lawn".

Prayer

Everyone was seated around the table as the food was being served. When little Logan received his plate, he started eating right away.

"Logan, wait until we say our prayer," his mother reminded him.

"I don't have to," the little boy replied.
