Notes from a Country Kitchen

What do I hear? Itís rain and how wonderful it sounds. We were all praying for rain and I hope we all thank the good Lord as he answers our prayer. I suppose the first complaint will be those who are going to the state fair. Thatís one place I wonít or donít go, just too much walking for an old gal like me. I was there once but it was many years ago. Today (Sat.) I just donít have much to write, Iím just sitting by my desk, next to the window, listening to the rain come down, itís music to my ears.

Two dogs met on the street one day and started talking. "Iím a mess," said one. "I think Iím headed for a nervous break-down."

"Why donít you see a psychiatrist?" asked the other dog.

"I canít," the first complained. "Iím not allowed on the couch."

When the new preacher moved to town, one of the first people he met said, "I certainly hope youíre not one of those narrow-minded ministers who thinks only the members of his congregation are going to Heaven."

"Iím even more narrow-minded than that," the preacher replied. "Iím pretty sure some of the members of my congre-gation arenít going to make it, either."

The mule may be the worldís most frustrated animal, but one thing is sureóheís not the dumbest.

try to do rightó
if they thought it was wrong.

He who is good for making excuses is seldom good for any-thing else.

Remember, a prune is a plum that worried too much and got wrinkles.

These times right now are stranger by far
Than any that our ancestors knew;
Miss a dayís work and the
government
Loses as much as you do
