Monday Travel Humor

As you read this, Betty and I are on a plane flying to the Big Island, Hawaii. Enjoy…

A couple for Monty Python fans…

I didn’t realize there was an earlier version…

I never saw the original, but I might watch this reboot…

A mash up for Star Wars/Dr. Who fans…

You have to think about this one a little…

The Navy tried X-Wing fighters on their carriers, but they didn’t work…

Spock and the Three Stooges – great…

You can’t beat Spock when it comes to logic…

Now for some non-space humor. First, a visual pun…

We New Mexicans love our coyotes and roadrunners…

This sounds good until your group runs into a grizzly…

The way I cook…

Another version of the glass full/empty viewpoint…

I know this is sexist and I apologize, but remember Kermit is talking about Ms. Piggy…

Our youngest son, Chris, does serious cardio on an exercise bike, but this would be my kind…

I have no idea about the band, but I miss Robin Williams a lot…

Sad, sad day…

Finally, you can’t beat babies and Golden Retrievers…

Happy Mothers Day And Never Give Up

Especially to one of the best Mothers I know… Betty!

And, I wanted to add this for times in life when you think you’re the underdog.

The Kentucky Derby was run yesterday. One of the early horses in the race was scratched at the last minute. The horse that was put in to fill the spot was a horse named Rich Strike. He was an 80-1 long shot, the longest odds in the field.

80-1 and he WON going away! So, never ever give up!

Definitely Me

My lower back is bothering me this morning, Saturday, so this cartoon seems very appropriate…

Goats At Work

A couple of days ago, I was walking Jessie around our neighborhood. I passed a couple walking a dog and they told me, “You won’t believe what you’ll pass up ahead. There are probably 100 goats working in a yard.” When they said that I thought of our good friend, Max Wade, who has that as a business – ‘Galloping Goats.’ They hire out to individuals, companies and governmental entities to have their goats clean out areas. It’s effective and completely environmental.

Sure enough, I walked Jessie to that house and there were the goats – actually about 75, not 100. Max wasn’t there, but his daughter Claire and her friend Riley were in charge of the goats. We’ve known Claire since she was a little girl working at Max’s ranch when he ran Galloping Grace Youth Ranch. Now, she’s a beautiful young, married woman.

When I got home, I told Betty about it, and she stopped on her way to Care Net to say hello to Claire. She took this picture – Claire in on the left, Riley on the right, their herding dog, Cue at the bottom right, and the goats working in the background…

Good News Wednesday – Betty’s Birthday

For almost 61 years, 6 years of going together and almost 55 years of marriage, you and I have walked the path the Lord set before us. Some of that path has been joyful, especially the birth and lives of our two sons. Some of that path has been painful and difficult. Today, our path is leading us towards the end of our lives on this earth and the beginning of our lives in eternity with Jesus.

You have been my encourager, my support, my truth, my comfort, and so much more. We have laughed together and cried together.

It’s hard to imagine that I can love you more each day after all these years, but that’s true. You have been and are still God’s gift to me.

Happy birthday, sweetheart.
