Happy Shrove Tuesday

Shrove Tuesday, also know as Fat Tuesday, is the day before Lent starts. It’s a chance to fill up before giving up for Lent. Many churches have a traditional pancake supper the evening of Shrove Tuesday. Unfortunately, our church doesn’t. Oh well. Enjoy your pancakes if your church has a pancake supper.

Monday Humor

It’s the start of another week and we all may need a few laughs to get our week off to a good start… first because of the weather…

…then perhaps if like me, you’re sick of all the politics around us…

… or, like me, you’re dealing with getting older…

… finally, if you have friends who are having difficulties in their marriages…

… so enjoy your week.

Happy Birthday

Today we celebrate the birth of the first and perhaps greatest president, George Washington. He could have been king for life, but he chose to step down into his personal life, leaving his political life, after two terms as president. Many of today’s politicians could learn a lesson in humility from him.

It also would be the 100th birthday of Dorothy Erwin Cooksey, my mother. Happy birthday, Mom.

Crowned…

I spent this morning at the dentist getting a temporary crown. My dentist, Frank, is a good dentist so he did a good job. And he’s a neighbor so he’s also a friend.

But no matter how good a job he did, this old picture is still true…

Food, Wine and Diets

One of the guys in my Bible study had a great line yesterday… “When it comes to food, I can resist almost everything except temptation.”

So, here’s some humor around those temptations…

Starting off with my favorite… bacon…

After ‘Peanut of the Night,’ this is my favorite wine…

While we’re on wine, a previously unknown fact…

We can’t leave out accondiments…

Lastly, the truth about diets…

Crimes and Warnings

Next time you need to put someone or more on ice…

I guess you have to save your crime for the night time hours…

The missing Chihuahua is still an open case, but there is a lead…

Then there are warnings such as who should have playground duty…

Next time you go to India… no matter how hungry you might get…

Finally, we have an answer to potential conflict…

Automobile humor

I especially like this last one. When Betty and I were dating in high school, my parents owned two VW Bugs. Eventually, my sister and I both bought Bugs so our family had four VW Bugs at the same time. However, we weren’t this creative…
