Happy WF Wednesday, Meg. Thank you.
Thank you for the sweet cat kisses.
It has been warm here too. I'm not sure what they are predicting for today.

Have a fun day whatever you do.

” ...
When the Holy Spirit indwells us, He teaches us, convicts us, comforts us, and guides us into truth
(John 14:16-17,26; 16:7-8,13).
Are you tuned in to the interruption of His voice?”

Your inner promptings, soft and clear;
And help us know Your still, small voice
So we may make God’s will our choice. —D. De Haan

To: All
A woman had just returned to her home from an evening of church services, when she was startled by an intruder. She caught the man in the act of robbing her home of its valuables and yelled: 'Stop! Acts 2:38!' (Repent and be Baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ , so that your sins may be forgiven.)

The burglar stopped in his tracks. The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done.

As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar: 'Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you.'

'Scripture?' replied the burglar. 'She said she had an Ax and Two 38s!'

Happy Smile Month!

Hi Teenie ((((HUGS)))!

Wednesday is my 13 hour day...I had a brief moment to come home and walk the dog, and they repaved my street while I was in the garage. Now I am afraid to drive on the hot steamy tar to go back to work, but I HAVE to...a second recital THIS Sunday, and the kids NEED me!

"It
seems
that
the
thread
has
lost
a
lot
of
the
feeling
of
a
place
to
relax
and
enjoy
our
fare."

I agree wholheartedly, Amy!
It seems that 'ailments' have taken precedence
Over bringing peace and sweetness
To a place that should bring a smile
and comfort to everyone visiting, here.

I hope that continues to change
As yesterday's posts were so reminiscent
of the 'good old days - at AMY'S PLACE!

A PLACE OF POETRY AND POTPOURI

Speaking of aliments,
Everyone over 50 has them - trust me.
And, I will gladly pray for anyone,
when notified of problems,
by FReepmail.

(((((HUGS)))) to everyone!

Good afternoon, Teenie. I love these WF kids being posted today. Thank you. Wishing you a fantastic WF Wednesday.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A blonde and a lawyer were seated next to each other on a long flight. To pass the time, the lawyer suggested that they try to stump one another with trivia.

"If I ask you something that you don't know, you owe me $5. The same goes if you ask me something I don't know."

The blonde refused.

"Okay. If you don't know an answer, you pay me $5, but if I don't know an answer, I pay you $50."

The blonde accepted. The Lawyer went first.

"What is the distance from the earth to the moon?"

The blonde didn't say anything, but merely reached into her purse, pulled out a $5 bill and handed it to the lawyer. Then it was her turn.

"What has four legs going up a hill, but only three coming down?"

The lawyer had no idea, so he gave her a $50 bill.

"So, what is it?"

The blonde said nothing, but merely reached into her purse and gave a $5 bill to the lawyer.




Happy Smile Month.

Happy WF Wednesday, LTOS.

After today's busy day, I hope you have a relaxing day tomorrow.

Thanks for that funny graphic.

~~~

Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

Now Men .... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.

May is Smile Month .... enjoy it!

Big smile (for Smile Month) ... Thank you!

My mom would sing to us ... A Tisket - A Tasket, Playmate, Mares eat Oats and Three Little Fishes. I know there are many more but I can remember them right now. It made for a childhood to remember with a smile.
