God Bless America. Let us sing it loud and clear
to tell the nations of the world we still have freedom here.
We know our efforts sometime fail
but when compared to all the rest
we are proud to say - our America
will always be the best!

A preacher was telling a group of eight-year-olds about the joys of going to Heaven. “Everyone who wants to go to Heaven, stand up,” he called out. All the children jumped to their feet except Johnny. “What’s the matter, Johnny?” the preacher asked, “don’t you want to go to Heaven someday?” Johnny replied, “oh, yes, I want to go someday. I was afraid you were fixen’ up a load to go now.”

Ole’s friend Knute, whose hair had fallen out early in life, compares his head to heaven, because there’s no parting there.

Most of us could pay as we go, if we didn’t go so much.

Not only is the horse becoming extinct, but also the people who work like one.

There was an old farmer named Billie
and walking in town he looked silly.
For one leg was shorter by an inch and a quarter.
The reason? His farm was so hilly!

Don’t count the days - make the days count.

Love Poem

Dearest Sweet Pea:

Do you carrot at all for me? With your radish hair and your turnip nose, you are the apple of my eye. If we cantaloupe, let us marry anyway, for I know we would make a happy pear.
Yours truly,
Pinto Bean

Hints

1. When covering a cake with foil, spray the foil with a non-stick cooking spray, so the icing won’t stick.

2. If you have a difficult time swallowing pills, here’s a tip for you. Bite off a piece of banana, and just before you get ready to swallow, put the pill in your mouth. It goes right down with the banana.

Bones in an organization
•Wishbones - Spend their time wishing someone else would do the work.
•Jawbones - Talk about the work, but never do any of it.
•Knucklebones - Knock anyone who tries to do the work.
•Funnybones - Enjoy all the activities, but totally ignore the work.

Happily, there are also backbones, alive and steady, who get under the load and do the work.

Yes, we have had lots of rain, but being dried out must be awful. I heard one lady say, “all I get done is paying the guy who mows my lawn, which he has been mowing twice a week.” I wonder what she would sa .....

I hear people say they just have to get away from it all and take a much needed vacation - and I say to get away from what? Farming is so different then when I was a kid. They don’t plow corn, it’s sprayed .....

Was doing some hand sewing the other day and I needed a certain color, so I went to my sewing basket and sure enough I had the right color and it was a wooden spool and the price was marked 15¢. I don’t know .....

Are you forgetful or is it just me. The other day I should say morning, I looked for my wrist-watch for two hours and I thought I’ll just wait, it will show up some where. About two hours later it popped in .....

What a weekend. We took two vehicles to Green Bay, WI. My son and I were in his pick-up truck and my two daughters and daughter-in-law were in her van. It’s a five hour drive up there. We left Harmony about 1 .....
