A tribute to teachers

God gave to you
the rarest gift
an understanding heart.
A gentle kindly manner
your wisdom to impart.
Oh, some men build
with steel and iron
to pave their way to fame,
but you are building character
a lasting tribute to your name.
The lives you touch,
the good you do
shall never know an end
and we are proud to call you
teacher and friend.
. . . . .
School days are here again and it’s so heart warming to see all those kids, big and little, go off to school. I know they are taught different things than when I went to school, but they have to go with the new things that are out in the world today. I do hope they are taught to say “thank you” and to remember to use good manners at all times. These two subjects never go out of style. Good luck, teachers, for another year of schooling.
. . . . .
Chuckle
An ill-tempered man went to see the doctor. “What seems to be your trouble?” the doctor asked kindly. “That’s what you’re supposed to tell me, “the man retorted. “In that case, the doctor said, “I’d like you to sit in the reception room for about an hour while I call a specialist. He’s a veterinarian and the only doctor I know who can make a diagnosis without asking questions.
. . . . .
Some people display a lot of unexpected talent when it comes to acting like a fool.
. . . . .
Nothing is impossible . . . to the one who doesn’t have to do it.
. . . . .
When I’m on a diet
There’s one thing that I’ve found.
If I have to swallow pride . . .
I never gain a pound.
. . . . .
To make a long story short . . . don’t tell it.
. . . . .
Remember Mama’s saying
• How do you know you don’t like it until you’ve tried it?
• Don’t forget your lunch.
• Keep your feet off the furniture.
• Shut the door, do you want to let all the flies in?
• You’ll have to go outside to do that.
• Walk, don’t run.
• Don’t stand there with the refrigerator door open.
• No, you’re not the only one around here who ever does anything.
• I don’t care who started it, you stop it.
• Shut that thing off . . .it’s past your bedtime.

Well has it been hot enough for you? Guess it wouldn’t be so bad if the humidity wasn’t so high. We did get our rain but we also got the terrible wind, which knocked our corn down here around Harmony and Ca .....

It’s often said that a family that plays together and prays together will stay together. That may be an over simplification, but is has a lot of truth to it. Planting the right kind of a garden is one of th .....
