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.
