~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

A coach is someone who tells you what you don't want to hear, who has you see what you don't want to see, so you can be who you have always known you could be. - Tom Landry

NOTE:

Thanks to John L. Hoh, Jr. the source for Monday's Thoughts is noted as follows:

Do not read beauty magazines. They will only make you feel ugly. - Mary Smich

By "Chicago Tribune" columnist Mary Smich in a column about if she was ever asked to speak at commencement what she would say. Baz Luhrman turned it into a hit (something about using sun screen) a few years ago.

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:

One morning I was sitting in the lobby of a Winnipeg hotel waiting for a friend to come down from his room. As he left his key at the desk, the clerk said, "You are late to church this morning, aren't you?"

My friend replied, "You didn't go to church either."

"No," the man replied, "I never go to church any more. There are too many hypocrites there. So I just stay away."

I thought my friend gave a very good answer: "But that's the reason I go to church. Where there are counterfeits, one usually finds the genuine."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:

After nine police officers on a narcotics raid at an apartment building in Coventry, England, squeezed into an elevator made for eight, it stalled. The officers wound up being trapped for 45 minutes until resident Eddie Laidle heard their cries for help.

"I told them I would get the police," he said, "and they shouted, 'We are the police -- get the fire brigade!' "
