Don’t the days and weeks go by fast. Thanksgiving has gone by and Christmas will be soon here. Right after Thanksgiving I start with my Christmas cards. I have always loved writing them out and putting a little note in them, especially those far away and tell them how things are going back here. I hope what happened September 11th won’t get us all down as we have to keep up the Christmas spirit, after all do we remember what really happened on Christmas?
. . . . .
To you
May the Giver of Gifts give Unto you that which is good,
That which is true, the will to Help, the courage to do;
A heart that can sing
The whole day through,
Whether the skies are
Gray, or blue
May the Giver of Gifts
Give these to you.

Sven: If it took 9 men 9 hours to build a brick wall, how much time would it take 6 men to build it?

Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today; tomorrow there may be a law against it.

Remember this December: That “Love” weighs more than gold!

The gang’s all here
To trim the tree.
It’s such a lot of fun!
But when it’s time to take it down
Where is anyone!

A helping purse

Do you carry cough drops, pens, pencils, kleenex, small calendar, address book, telephone numbers, social security numbers, drivers license, check book, clean paper to leave a note, some string, safety pins, small scissors, nail clipper, hard candy, needle and thread, band-aids, scotch tape, small screwdriver and your favorite Bible verse.

How about this?
While eating a typical dinner, the average person swallows 295 times - try counting them.

When someone graduates from the McDonald’s school for franchises, they are bestowed with a Bachelor of Hamburgeralogy.

Wild elephants sleep only two hours in the middle of the night. This is not for safety’s sake for they fear no predators, but must use the other 22 hours a day to find enough food to .....

Did you read Charlie Warners article in the paper last week and how true it is. Why do we parents let our children drink so much pop and eat so much deep-fried, greasy food and then wonder about their te .....

Was lazy the other day so I started reading the book “Butter in the Well,” and what those people went through just to stay alive was amazing. It is a diary from 1869 and those people came from Sweden ove .....
