Time for some laffs – Driving Grandmothers, mechanical cows and inflight service!

Thank you for this wonderful humor, Sally. I had so much fun! 😀

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

A visit to the archives from 2015 for some recyclables… so to speak.

Got a letter from Grandma the other day. She writes:

The other day I went up to a local Christian bookstore and saw a “Honk if you love Jesus” bumper sticker. I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting, so I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.

Boy, I’m glad I did! What an uplifting experience that followed!

I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good He is, and I didn’t notice that the light had changed. It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn’t honked, I’d never have noticed. I found that LOTS of people love Jesus!

Why, while I…

The Little Show Off – A Riddle

________________________________________________________________________

 

Small and chatty and hunts at dawn

quick and fast, shows up and is gone.

He wants to be a predator and as well a wiz

but more a creep and fake, that’s what he is.

**

All kinds of sorts do exist in our – and animals world

a mouse one, a fire-one, the fur straight or curled;

a back stripe one, and as well one with naked feet

up mountains, in the forests and tropics can we greet.

**

We can find him anywhere we might go

in grass, at waters, and up hills is where they grow.

He’s got teeth, but don’t mean danger

he might look familiar and still be stranger.

**

He might be related to the mink,

but no reason for pride, it’s no close link.

He’s got a tail – he thinks it’s long

but don’t get fooled, he’s very wrong.

**

When we see one don’t be sad or shy

in case he resembles some familiar guy.

I know a man and I didn’t sniff diesel

who’s just like our animal today – a weasel.

Tiny, Scary Species – A Riddle

26076995 - 3d man leaning against red question mark and thinking over white background

 


 

They’re smart and feel each other’s mood

part of their body, it is nude

They communicate by touch and sound

and strong they hold their family bound.

**

They love to explore and love to taste

when they move, it looks like haste.

They stay quite close to their own home

It’s not their habit, far to roam.

**

Their homes are clean and organized

areas for food and sleep are well devised.

They are great parents and love their kids

they’re not spoiled, they follow bids.

**

They can jump from impressive heights

but small they are – beware their bites.

Their whiskers help to feel some change

in temperature, breeze and other range.

**

As small they are, it’s hard to catch

we wouldn’t think they’re one good match

but please, believe me, hold your breath,

they scare an elephant to death!

**

No war, no feud no arrogance

peaceful and tiny, they feed from plants.

But sadly they all, including brood

to many hunters, are just food.

**

They might scare ladies up to a chair

they might cause screams and fearful stare

when they’re found in your honorable house

I think, you’ve guessed – I mean – the mouse!
