Sunday Funnies

God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day.

Michael inquired, "Where have you been?"

God smiled deeply and pointed downwards through the clouds,"Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, “and I've put life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm confused."

God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth: "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Balance in all things.”

God continued pointing to different countries: "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"

God replied, "That's Virginia, a glorious place. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, and plains. The people from Virginia are going to be modest, intelligent, and humorous. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things"

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance..."

God smiled, "Right next to Virginia is Washington, DC. Wait till you see the people I put there."

Haha!! Even God is probably shocked by some of the folks in DC and what they do!!

Sounds like you have been having fun since being retired!! I'm glad the latest cooking class went well.

It's been chilly and rainy here too. I think soon you'll be able to get out and play some golf!

Oh, love your new griddle too!!

Thanx to both of you. DC is like the man who jumped of a skyscraper; as he passed every floor he said, "So far, so good!"

Who ever thought it would come to this?

Hey Ralph, are you sure it was Virginia? Texas or Nebraska sound more like it, they are both about equally great!
