The Old Country Schoolhouse
With faded paint peeling,it stands all alone.
The door is ajar,all the windowpanes gone,
all about, only silence,save the wind in the trees.
Whispering softly of old memories -
of children reciting the pledge to the flag,
of hide-and-go-seek,andy-over and tag!
Reading and writing,learning A, B and C’s,
Blackboards, erasers,old-time spelling bees.
Eating lunch out-of doors in the maple tree’s shade,
The good things to eat that mother had made.
Programs at Christmas,the tree decorations
Pageants and plays and short recitations.
But time marches on - those days are now o’er
The school bell’s clear ringing, resounds there no more.
There’s only the sighing of wind in the trees,
Whispering softly of old MEMORIES!
. . . . .
School days are here again and I guess I’m glad I went to a country school. I know I will never be able to use, dot.dot.com., but we had so much fun, plus learning, sharing and respect for everyone. My greatest respect was for our teachers as having 20-25 kids in one room plus all 8 grades must of been very trying some days, especially when it was cold and the lunch pails, ink wells and water pail were all frozen and the teach had to build her own fires. “Thank you” teachers for being so great, we will never ever forget you. Now to all you young kids that started back to school, study hard, it doesn’t hurt at all, and some day you will look back and say what I say, “those were the good ol’ days.”
Chuckle - Lets see some ID
A stranger approached a farmer, showed him an identification card and announced, “I’m a government inspector and I’m entitled to inspect your farm!” A while later the farmer heard a scream from the alfalfa patch. On investigation he found the inspector was being chased by a bull. The farmer leaned over the gate and yelled, “Show him your card, Mister!”

The new math
The teacher asked her students, “If you had 10 potatoes and had to divide them among 12 people, how would you do it?” one child replied, “mash em.”

What would Jesus drive?
• Most people assume WWJD is for “What would Jesus do?” but the initials really stand for “What would Jesus drive?”
• One theory is that Jesus would tool around in an old Plymouth because “The bible says God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden in a Fury.”
• Perhaps God favors Dodge pickups trucks, because Moses’ followers are warned not to go up a mountain “until the ram’s horn sounds a long blast.”
• Meanwhile Moses rode an old British motorcycle, as evidenced by a bible passage declaring that “the roar of Moses’ triumph is heard in the hills.”
• Joshua drove a Triumph sports car with a hole in its muffler “Joshua’s Triumph was heard throughout the land!”
• And, following the master’s lead, the apostles car pooled in a Honda - “The apostles were in one Accord.”
