To be upset over what you don't have, is to waste what you do have. - Ken S. Keyes, Jr.

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
My Daddy's Bible
I held my Daddy's Bible, so tender, worn and old. It is a symbol of his love for the Diety.
It is a touching piece of memory, stored within my heart. So many times, in days gone by, I've seen him study the Word from this very Bible, held so tenderly.
So many times after a hard day's work, I see him sitting in his favorite chair; just wearing his strap undershirt, his worn overhauls and barefoot; neath the lamplight. I did not take in the full affect of what a soothing tonic it was to a weary soul.
Within the pages of this BOOK, I find some family history; the making of my heritage; a flutter goes within my breast as I think of what he tells. The dates of my parent's birth dates, their passing dates, as well, the dates of their Holy Matrimony, their parents history, too. With tear dimmed eyes, I see the marks of when my siblings were born. Over the years, I see them leave our place on earth for a better home above.
With heartfelt thoughts, I place this Book in a place of honor; not just for the data that has been recorded but for the precious Word of God.

Things Wives Don't Want To Hear Their Husbands Say On Christmas Day
"You like it, hon? Almost look like real diamonds, don't they?"
"That cheese ball was for later?"
"I never imagined a deep-fried turkey would flame up like that."
"Timmy, why is Mommy's present hissing?"
"It's the thought that counts, right?"
"Hey, the game's about to start!"
"That's right, hon. Your own subscription to "Guns & Ammo."
"Wow, thanks, Uncle Ted. Bagpipes!"
"It's two sizes smaller, darling- - you know, for motivation."
"Well, if it isn't Roy and Angela and their seven kids - - with suitcases! What a pleasant surprise!"

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
While working for the Post Office I had a post card go thru my line, on it someone had listed their name, address, phone number, SSN number and account number. But what really caught my eye was the notation at the bottom in large dark letters. PERSONAL AND CONFIDENTIAL FOR PATTY ONLY
Cracker Jacks were created by F. W. Rueckheim at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. The recipe of carmel coated popcorn and peanuts has never changed. The snack food got its name from a popular expression of the day. People would say "crackerjack" to mean "great." Sailor Jack on the box was modeled after Rueckheim 's grandson and dog Bingo. The toy prize was added to Cracker Jack boxes in 1912.
