Hello Everyone ~~ I hope things are going well for you
and your families. Thank you so much to all who wished
my daughter well. Kathy is fine, I rang her today in the
hospital and she sounded good. Originally, she fell from
a horse and split her finger, 3 weeks ago. She had it
stitched and was put on antibiotics, but they didn’t fix it
so then she was put on stronger ones, but was sent to
hospital last Friday. They removed the nail and black
shiny skin and hopefully have got all the bugs out this
time. She has a drip in with yet more drugs to make sure
it is on the mend, and then she has to have a skin graft.
The Doctors told her it is a very rare bug and is one that
can cause gangrene. But she will be fine, and I do very
much appreciate your support. We will both survive !!!
<><><><><> Couple of short Poems. <><><><><>
<><><> LOVE <><><>
Love is a very simple thing,
Love is a contented mind.
Love is tolerance, being warm,
Love is just being kind.
Love is trusting, being sure,
As sure as there’s starshine above,
That when the moment is at hand
You’ll know this real meaning of love.
<><> The Great White Throne. <><>
If I were standing to be judged
Before the great white throne
Where I could hear the righteous sing
And hear the sinners moan,
I’ll want no greater advocate
To make my final plea,
Than just---well, someone would say,
He did a lot for me.

Proudly showing off his newly-leased apartment to a couple
of friends late one night, the drunk yuppie led the way to
his bedroom where there was a big brass gong.
“What’s that big brass gong for?” one of his friends asked.
“Issss nod a gong. Issss a talking clock,” the drunk replied.
“A talking clock? Seriously?” “Yup”, he repied.
“How’s it work?” he second friend asked squinting at it.
“Watshhh,” the yuppie replied. He picked up a hammer, gave it
an ear-shattering pound and stepped back. The three stood
looking at each other for a moment of silence.
Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed”
“For goodness sake, you idiot, it’s ten past three in the

After Leslie brought home her fiance to meet her parents, her
father invited the young man into his study to find out more
about him. “What are your plans?” he asked Joseph.
“I’m a scholar of the Torah,” Joseph replied.
“Well that;s admirable,” Leslie’s father replied. “But what will
you do to provide a nice house for my daughter?”
“I will study, and God will provide for us, Joseph explained.
“And how will you buy her a nice engagement ring?”
“I will study hard, and God will provide for us.”
“And children?” asked the father. “How will you support them?”
“Don’t worry sir, God will provide,” replied the fiance.
The conversation continued in much the same fashion. After
Joseph and Leslie had left, her mother asked her father what
he had found out.
The father answered, “Well he has no job, and no plans, but
the good news is that he thinks I am God.”
There was a little boy named Johnny who used to hang out at
the local corner market. The owner didn’t know what Johnny’s
problem was but the boys would constantly tease him at not
being too smart. To prove it, sometimes they would offer him the choice
between a nickel (5 cents) and a dime (10 cents)
Johnny would always take the nickel—they said because it was
One day after John grabbed the nickel, the store owner took him
aside and said “Johnny, those boys are making fun of you.
They think you don’t know the dime is worth more than the
nickel. Are you taking it because the nickel is bigger or what?”
Slowly, Johnny turned toward the store owner and a big grin
appeared on his face, and Johnny said, “Well, if I took the dime,
they’d stop doing it, and so far I have saved $20!”
