Do you read and believe everything you see in the paper? Everyday its something new or different we shouldn’t do, eat drink or breathe. Here’s some:
1. Don’t eat eggs, apples, carrots, rice, oats, barley, plums, cherries, garlic, wheat bran, wheat germ, soybean oil, green vegetables for all the same reason.
2. Don’t breath, you will inhale carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen and sulphur.
3. Obviously don’t drive or ride in an automobile, in the U.S. 50,000 persons a year are killed by autos.
4. Don’t eat salt, you may have to drink too much water.
5. Don’t farm. It is one of the three most dangerous occupations.
6. Don’t turn on the TV, those rays may cause cancer.
7. Don’t switch on a microwave oven, for the same reason.
8. Finally! Don’t read this, you might have a nervous breakdown.

A job-seeker walked in the house and announced “Honey, I got a job!” “Great,” she said, “What’s the pay?” “Oh, they said they’ll pay me what I’m worth!” “What?” his wife sputtered. “We can’t live on that!”

. . . . .
A farmer was milking when he saw a fly disappear into the cows ear. After milking a while longer, he noticed a fly in the milk bucket. “That’s really something,” he said. “A fly goes in one ear and out the udder.”

Ole says that Lena’s mother is so fat, that she needs Group Insurance.

. . . . .
Never pick a quarrel,
even when it’s ripe.

. . . . .
When at night one cannot sleep,
a common cure is counting sheep,
but what do you do
if you’re so tense,
you can’t can make the
darn sheep jump the fence.

. . . . .
A man of words and not of deeds,
is like a garden full of weeds.

. . . . .
The most important thing
about your lot in life,
is whether you use it
for building or parking.

Holy Bloopers
1. Tuesday at 4pm there will be an ice cream social, all ladies giving milk come early.
2. This afternoon there will be a meeting in the south and north ends of the church. Children will be baptized on both ends.
3. The service will close with “Little Drops of Water.” One of the ladies will start quietly and the rest of the congregation will join in.

Thoughts on a rainy Monday
• The day you get a manicure, the kettle must be scoured.
• The weekend you have special guests, the breakfast cream has soured.

In all this HOT and humid weather I was glad I didn’t have to sit down and milk cows by hand or have to help getting meals for all the threshers like years ago. When we get older, we wonder how we ever di .....

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 .....
