I Have A Cookie

Okay, maybe it just me being the Grandpa (a.k.a Papa) but I think this is a pretty darn funny video.  It should be noted she kept me in the basement for about five minutes before this video was made. Turn your speakers on.

Sunday Funnies

A thriving baseball club is one of the features of a boy's organization connected with a prominent church. The team was recently challenged by a rival club. 

The pastor gave a special contribution of one hundred dollars to the captain, with the direction that the money should be used to buy bats, balls, gloves, or anything else that might help to win the game.

On the day of the game, the pastor was somewhat surprised to observe nothing new in the club's paraphernalia. He called the captain to him.

"I don't see any new bats, or balls, or gloves," he said.

"We haven't anything like that," the captain admitted.

"But I gave you one hundred dollars to buy them," the pastor exclaimed.

"Well, you see," came the explanation, "you told us to spend it for bats, or balls, or gloves, or anything that we thought might help to win the game, so we gave it to the umpire."

It All Started With A Picnic

On Sunday, May 5th, Char and I celebrated the anniversary of our first date 36 years ago.  I wrote about it here. 

Unlike 36 years ago we did not eat fried chicken.  Rather, early in the morning, we stayed in bed, drank milk and watched cartoons with our granddaughter, Taylor.  She had spent the night with us. 

The following two pictures are of Char and I.  The first one was taken shortly after we were married.  The second was taken a year or so ago on a cruise.

Sunday Funnies

A man sobering up from the night before is sitting through the Sunday sermon, finding it long and boring. Still feeling hung over and tired, he finally nods off.

The priest has been watching him all along, noticing his apparent hangover and is disgusted. At the end of the sermon, the preacher decides to make an example of him.

He says to his congregation, "All those wishing to have a place in heaven, please stand."

The whole room stands up except, of course, for the sleeping man.

Then the preacher says in a louder voice, "And those who would like to find a place in hell please STAND UP!"

The weary man catching only the last part groggily stands up, only to find that he's the only one standing.

Confused and embarrassed he says, "I don't know what we're voting on here, Father, but it sure seems like you and me are the only ones in favor of it."

Hide and Seek

Our granddaughter, Taylor, who is two, loves coming over and playing hide and seek.  While she is not very good at it, I can never find her.  Perhaps you can spot her in this picture?
