A new week Easter and next week it will be day-light saving time. For some of us its hard to get used to, but as time goes by we are all ready for it, especially those of you that have raking to do, lawns to mow and gardens to put in. I guess one more hour helps a lot. Happy Easter to you all.
. . . . .
Easter
Give thanks to God,
And humbly pray
To serve him well,
The Easter Day.
Give thanks to God,
For friends and flowers.
For sunny days
And cooling showers.
Give thanks to God;
Fill well your part,
Let love divine,
Possess your heart.

The husband died and went to heaven and really loved it. Soon after, his wife followed. He met her at the gate and started to show her around, overwhelmed with what she saw she said, “I didn’t think it would be this great in heaven - so beautiful, so peaceful, so joyful. “Yeah,” her husband replies, “and if it wasn’t for you and your old oat bran, we could of been here five years ago.

Lena: “What would you like to drink?”

Trying to dim someone else’s light doesn’t make your’s shine any brighter.
. . . . .
He who leaves
Kind deeds undone
And leaves kind
Words unspoken.
Is as sad, I think,
As an empty house,
With all its windows broken.

Facts
Full of keys: Lock industry spokesmen say the average person uses five different keys a day, but has a total of 27 keys around the house.

Yellow chickens: Some poultry farmers put marigold petals in their chicken feed to make the skins of their birds turn an appealing yellow.

Ever wondered how the Navy names its vessels?
• Destroyers after navel heroes
• Cruisers after cities
• Submarines after fish
• Battleships after states

Signs of the time

Car dealership: The best way to get back on your feet, miss a car payment.
Taxidermists window: We really know our stuff
On a front door: Everyone on the premises is a vegetarian except the dog.
Non-smoking area: If we see you smoking we will assume you are on fire and take appropriate action.

Here is a job we don’t have to do anymore, but it was fun sometimes. I remember one time my sister and I had orders to fill the straw tick off one of the beds upstairs, so we got it to the straw pile, got .....

Was out visiting the other day and as we were talking I looked down at my watch and it was 4:00 o’clock. Nothing pushing me whatsoever, but I guess the old habit from years ago on the farm always made us p .....

Was feeling sorry for myself the other day, as my legs ached, so I sat down and put them up on a stool and sat there awhile. As I was thinking to myself how much our mothers and dads used their poor old leg .....

Valentine Greeting
When I visited my friend,
on St. Valentine’s Day,
I knocked on her door
