One lazy, rainy, Sunday afternoon I decided to give my old friend John a call. I dialed the number and after about ten rings, a sleepy, groggy voice answered. Feeling a little embarrassed that I had woken my friend I said, “John, did I wake you?” A stern angry reply came back and nearly knocked me off my chair, “Hell yes you woke me, and this isn’t John, this is Bob, why don’t you morons get your numbers right before you make a call.” Then there was a click as he hung up the phone. more
One afternoon as I was driving home I checked my rear view mirror and noticed a highway patrolman approaching. I glanced at my speedo and noticed I was 10 mph under the posted speed limit so I sped up. I looked again and he was still coming, I sped up another 10 mph and still he was gaining on me. Finally I was up to 20 mph over the posted speed limit and he was closing in on me fast. Just as I was thinking of speeding up some more I saw his blue light.
I pulled over to the side of the road and waited for him to approach my car, as he was walking up I considered speeding off but thought better of it since obviously his car was faster than mine. As he approached my window he said, “What’s your hurry sir?” I looked up at him and said, “Oh, it’s you, just last week my wife ran off with a highway patrolman, I thought you was him bringing her back!”
Quote of the Day
“Above all else:
go out with a sense of humor. It is needed armor.
Joy in one’s heart and some laughter on one’s lips
is a sign that the person down deep
has a pretty good grasp of life.”
Thought of the Day
I was looking things over last night and realized that I, for some strange reason had not added humor to this site. That was not intentional, just an oversight and one that I aim to remedy starting today. Laughter is the best medicine, humor is the tonic for the soul, no matter how bad we feel, no matter how bad a day we may have, simple laughter will lift the burden on our hearts and make us feel that all is better.
Thought for Today
Humor is the great thing, the saving thing.
The minute it crops up, all our irritations and resentments
slip away and a sunny spirit takes their place.
Thought for Today
“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come
as a result of getting something we don’t have,
but rather of recognizing and appreciating
what we do have.”
