Why do we have weddings in July when it is so hot! I was to a wedding Saturday, July 21st at Goodhue, MN and it was hot but on the way it rained just a little so it cooled off a degree or two. The church was out in the country and quite large and they had fans going and all the windows opened and where we sat it wasn't’ too bad. I’m sure it was hot for the bride and groom and all the attendants dressed in their very best. One of the grooms attendants was in a wheelchair so they decided to have the other attendants sit during the first part, but stand during the wedding vows and blessings. I remember July 21st, 42 years ago when my son Al was born, it was hot, so guess we like the month of July. Maybe some of us do like the hot weather.

Chuckle

While visiting the second-grade Sunday School class, the pastor asked the children if they knew what happened on Easter. One lad raised his hand and said, “George Washington crossed a river and blew up firecrackers.” The teacher blushed in embarrassment. Suddenly another boy’s hand shot up. “I know what went on Easter Sunday,” he said, “Jesus rose from the dead!” The teacher and pastor were elated - until the boy went on, “and when He didn’t see His shadow, He went back in again.

When you reach for the stars you may not quite get one, but you won’t come up with a handful of mud either.

Prayer should be the key of the day, and the lock of the night.

Watch out when you stretch the truth, it could snap back at you.

Happiness often sneaks in through a door, you didn’t know you left open.

The modern bride
deserves a hand
and praise without a doubt,
Her meals are always
served on time
and very well thawed out.

Nuts and Bolts

Nuts is what you are if you think you can repair anything without at least one trip to town for parts. Bolt is what I try to do to get away whenever Dad has that “fix-it” look in his eyes, and washer is where all my greasy clothes end up. I also know the most basic rule of any wrench; “lefty-loosey,” “righty-tighty.” Guess I’m not such a bad mechanic after all. I know when something rattles, bumps or clumps - it needs fixing, but when it just doesn’t look right - it needs repair work.

Life

To the preacher, life’s a sermon
To the joker, life’s a jest
To the miser, life is money

The American Dream
Yesterday, I walked across a rolling field
Once battled scared and torn
Imagined I could hear the voices of soldiers
Their faces tired and worn
What did they feel, th .....

Annabelle Kvam What are some of your fondest memories? I have so many, living on a farm was the best teacher or friend one could ask for. One memory was getting up early, putting on rubbers, and hiking out to the cow pasture and bringing in the cows .....
