Sunday Funnies

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large tray of apples. A note on the apple tray read: "Take only ONE. God is watching."

At the end of the table was a large tray of chocolate chip cookies. One little girl wrote a note and left it next to the tray. It read, "Take all the cookies you want. God’s watching the apples."

Guess she hadn't heard that God sees everything!! Cute Ralph.

I was just reading your previous post. I like that name; Mayhew. It rolls off the tongue nicely, don't you think?

You know, "Mayhew, Mayhew, Mayyou, Mayyou." ....never mind.

I wish we'd had a chair with the pot in it like that when I was a kid! That would have been nice!

That tub with no drain hole? That ain't like the old washtub that you just dragged outside and turned over! That looks like lots of work to empty.

I'll bet it would be hard for you to tear up some of that old machinery like that, but then again...might be easy for you!! Heehee

Hi Ralph! I don't know if the little girl was smart or not. My note would have been something like, 'hands off the chocolate. God is watching and so am I.' Lisa

Hey Ralph - I've seen you comment on quite a few blogs that I visit, so I thought I'd drop by to say hi.

Cute story. As a teacher, I can always appreciate a school funny.

That's my kind of thinking.
When it comes to cookies, there's no such thing as just one.
My mom says that we were at someone's house once when I was just about two years old. I asked for cookies, and the lady said she didn't have any, and she and my mom went on visiting. Later, I emerged from the kitchen with my mouth stuffed with vanilla wafers and had them in both hands. My mom said the lady was so embarrassed, and said, "I didn't even know I had those!"
If there are cookies, I will find them... and eat them.
Good thing God is watching the apples!
