~~~~~~~ WITandWISDOM™ - June 14, 1999
I've learned that sometimes you have to put the individual ahead of their actions.
~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
One day the chaplain of good Queen Victoria preached a sermon on the second coming of Christ. As he spoke of that glorious event, he noticed tears in the eyes of the queen. After the service, he approached her, and asked: "Why did Your Majesty weep as I spoke today?"
"Oh," said she, "because I do hope that He will come in my day!"
"Why does Your Majesty desire that He should come in your day?" the chaplain asked.
"Oh, sir, that I may lay my crown at His feet!"
By Harold M. S. Richards, Signs of the Times, December 1, 1931
~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
THINGS DOGS HAVE TO REMEMBER
I will not play tug-of-war with Dad's underwear when he's on the toilet.
The garbage collector is NOT stealing our stuff.
I do not need to suddenly stand straight up when I'm lying under the coffee table.
I will not roll my toys behind the fridge.
I must shake the rainwater out of my fur BEFORE entering the house.
I will stop trying to find the few remaining pieces of clean carpet in the house when I am about to throw up.
I will not throw up in the car.
I will not wake Mommy up by sticking my cold nose on bottom end.
I will not chew my human's toothbrush and not tell them.
I will not chew crayons or pens, especially not the red ones, or my people will think I am hemorrhaging.
When in the car, I will not insist on having the window rolled down when it's raining outside.
We do not have a doorbell. I will not bark each time I hear one on TV.
I will not steal my human's underwear and dance all over the back yard with it.
The sofa is not a face towel. Neither are Mom & Dad's laps.
My head does not belong in the refrigerator.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Monday nights they show old movies in the dining room. Tonight it was a Nelson Eddy-Jeanette MacDonald extravaganza set in the Canadian Rockies. Several residents in the audience nodded off almost before the opening credits finished, including Mary Endicott, who had been rolled in from the infirmary in her wheelchair.
The scenery was magnificent and the music wonderful. A while later, Nelson Eddy knocked on a log-cabin door. There was no answer. He raised his arms and banged again with all his might: bam-Bam-BAM! Mary Endicott jerked up, raised her head, and yelled, "Come in!"
It was the best moment of the evening. - Effie Leland Wilder, "Over What Hill"
