Do any of you know any good jokes? If you do, post them here.


Here's an example:

Lost in the Service

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Johnny standing in the foyer of the church, looking at a large plaque that hung there. After the young man of seven had stood there for some time, the pastor walked up beside him and said quietly,"Good morning, son." "Good morning, Pastor," replied the youngster, not taking his eyes off the plaque. "Can I ask you, Sir, what is this for? Why are all these names listed on here?""Well, son, these are all the people who have died in the service," replied the pastor. Soberly, they stood together, staring up at the large plaque.Little Johnny's voice barely broke the silence when he asked quietly, "Which one, Sir, the 8:30 or the 10:30?"

(In case you didn't get it, the men died in the military service.)

Here's Thunder

This is Thunder. He is my (Timothy) dog. For those of you who don't know him; he is a purebreed Collie puppy that's always getting himself into TONS of trouble. As you see here,
he decided to jump into dad's chair to chew on it's leather armrests, so I took advantage of this and put Daniel's graduation cap on his head.

To sum up Thunder, he's a barking, chewing bundle of fur.

John's birthday cookie

We celebrated John's birthday on Sunday night (11/27) with a group from church. We always eat together on Sunday evenings, so this week we went to Firehouse Subs and had a birthday cookie afterwards. Here it is:

Life with Daniel

Today Daniel got a wire ornament hanger stuck between his two front teeth. I couldn't help but laugh at him because he looked goofy with wire sticking out of his teeth, but then I got serious quickly when I realized it wouldn't budge!

Our piano teacher was here at the time; her suggestion was to tie a ribbon around it and hang him on the Christmas tree. She then suggested using vaseline, but by the time I got back with it he had already yanked the wire out. Fortunately, no teeth came with it!

Life is never dull with Daniel. This morning he asked his grandmother for an electric drill for Christmas... if she could find one on sale. It's unclear why a six year old needs a drill, but he assured Grandmother that his dad wouldn't mind him having one!

Getting OLD

Here I am posing with Timothy, Daniel and my birthday present. Lorrie and boys gave me an XM Radio for my car to help ease the pain of remembering that I'm 47 years old...
