 As I was conditioning my hair in the shower this morning, I took time to read my shampoo bottle. I am in shock! The shampoo I use in the shower that runs down my entire body says “for extra volume and body”! Seriously, why have I not noticed this before?

 Tomorrow I am going to start using “Dawn” dish soap! It says right on the bottle, “dissolves fat that is otherwise difficult to remove”.

 It pays to read the warning labels my friends.

 “Well,” answered Johnny, “I understand about having goodness and mercy, for God is good. But I’m not sure I’d like Shirley following me around all the time.”

 “Will those wanting to get married please come to the front?” he requested.

 Immediately, nine single ladies, three widows, four widowers, and six single men stepped to the front.

 Surprised, Sarah said, “Hurray! I didn’t even know you were pregnant!”

 “I’m not,” the harried middle-aged mother replied.

 “I’m just sick of mornings.”

 Thinking that was a bit strange, he asked Sally what it was for.

 She said, “It’s part of my emergency repair kit.”

 Josh said, “I can see that, but why?”

 Sally replied, “In case I have a flat and need to blow up one of my tires.”

 “Yep,” the proprietor answered, “That’s him.”

 The stranger couldn’t help being amused. “That certainly doesn’t look like a dangerous dog to me,” he chuckled. “Why in the world did you decide to post that sign?”

 “Because,” the owner replied, “before I posted that sign, people kept tripping over him.”

 After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. At last she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings.

 As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, “Who was THAT?”


 A mother was telling her little girl what her own childhood was like: “We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods.”

 “I don’t know,” she replied. “I can’t read.”


 I didn’t know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me, and always she was correct. But it was fun for me, so I continued.

 At last she headed for the door, saying sagely, “Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these yourself!”

 Aging . . .

 ~ Maybe it’s true that life begins at fifty. But everything else starts to wear out, fall out, or spread out.

 ~ There are three signs of old age. The first is your loss of memory. I forget the other two.

 ~ You’re getting old when you don’t care where your spouse goes, just as long as you don’t have to go along.

 ~ Middle age is when work is a lot less fun–and fun is a lot more work.

 ~ Statistics show that at the age of seventy, there are five women to every man. Isn’t that a bad time for a guy to get those odds?

~ You know you’re getting on in years when the girls at the office start confiding in you.

 ~ Middle age is when it takes longer to rest than to get tired.

 ~ By the time a man is wise enough to watch his step, he’s too old to go anywhere.

 ~ Middle age is when you have stopped growing at both ends, and have begun to grow in the middle.

 ~ A man has reached middle age when he is cautioned to slow down by his doctor instead of by the police.

 ~ You know you’re into middle age when you realize that caution is the only thing you care to exercise.

 ~ The aging process could be slowed down if it had to work its way through Congress.

 ~ You’re getting old when you’re sitting in a rocker and you can’t get it started.

 ~ You’re getting old when you wake up with that morning-after feeling, and you didn’t do anything the night before.

 ~ The cardiologist’s diet: if it tastes good, spit it out.

 ~ Doctor to patient: I have good news and bad news: the good news is that you are not a hypochondriac.

 ~ It’s hard to be nostalgic when you can’t remember anything.

 ~ You know you’re getting old when you stop buying green bananas.

 ~ Last Will and Testament: Being of sound mind, I spent all my money.

 ~ When you lean over to pick something up off the floor, you ask yourself if there is anything else you need to do while you are down there.

 ~ You find yourself in the middle of the stairway, and you can’t remember if you were downstairs going up or upstairs going down

CleanPun – King Arthur’s Unknown Knights

It is a little-known fact that King Arthur had more knights than is usually believed. They included:

~ Sir Face – the devastatingly handsome, but disappointingly shallow knight

~ Sir Pass – Arthur’s best knight of all

~ Sir Port – A great help to all the other knights

~ Sir Culation – A knight who got around a bit – popular at parties

~ Sir Prise – the knight who could always be relied on to do the unexpected

~ Sir Vey – a watchful knight

~ Sir Monise – a rather long-winded and droning knight, but a good, moral sort

~ Sir Cuitous – a knight who approached his duties in a roundabout way

~ Sir Pose – a knight who stands by wild predictions

~ Sir Cumflex – a knight with a strange accent

~ Sir Cumvent – the evasive knight

~ Sir Reen – a calm and cheerful knight

~ Sir Spicious – a paranoid knight

~ Sir Real – a vague and insubstantial knight

~ Sir Cumstances – a knight whose fault it never was

Then there were the non-identical twins – Winter Solstice and Summer Solstice – the longest and shortest knights.

The Good Old Days…

Came across this verse in Ecclesiastes (7:10) today…

Don’t long for “the good old days.”
This is not wise. (NLT)

Do not say, “Why were the former days better than these?”
For you do not inquire wisely concerning this. (NKJV)

Don’t always be asking, “Where are the good old days?”
Wise folks don’t ask questions like that. (MSG)

Sometimes I find myself saying this often for when prices were cheaper.

I guess wisdom says I was making less money then too. If I want the one I should have the other. Am I showing ungratefulness for God’s provision?

Forgive me, Father, for not being “aware” of my attitude, or of not being continuously grateful for Your abundant provision for me all these years.

I am reminded of a verse I’ve often quoted “The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Yes, I have a good inheritance. (PS 16:6).” Surly You have provided abundantly for me.

Thank You for Your provisions for me, especially Jesus. Amen.

A Simple Explanation of Baseball

This is a game played by two teams, one out, the other in.The one that’s in sends players out one at a time to see if they can get in before they get out. If they get out before they get in, they come in, but it doesn’t count. If they get in before they get out, it does count.

When the ones out get three outs from the ones in before they get in without being out, the team that’s out comes in and the team in goes out to get those going in out before they get in without being out.

When both teams have been in and out nine times, the game is over. The team with the most in without being out before coming in wins unless the ones in are equal. In which case, the last ones in go out to get the ones in out before they get in without being out.

The game will end when each team has the same number of ins out but one team has more in without being out before coming in.


A young boy came to Sunday School late.

His teacher knew that he was usually very prompt and asked him if anything was wrong.

The boy replied no, that he was going fishing but his dad told him that he needed to go to church.

The teacher was very impressed and asked the boy if his dad had explained to him why it was more important to go to church than to go fishing?

The boy replied, “Yes he did. Dad said he didn’t have enough bait for both of us.”


In our home we tend to get the children to help out. One day our youngest son came in to the living room and asked, “Does anyone want a cup of coffee?”

“Yes please!” we said.

He replied, “What kind of coffee do you want? Capitated or decapitated?”


My friend’s four boys were young and bursting with energy, especially in church. But the sermon her minister preached on “turning the other cheek” got their undivided attention. The minister stressed that no matter what others do to us, we should never try to “get even.”

That afternoon the youngest boy came into the house crying. Between sobs he told his mother he had kicked one of his brothers, who had kicked him in return. “I’m sorry you’re hurt,” his mother said. “But you shouldn’t go around kicking people.”

To which the tearful child replied, “But the preacher said he isn’t supposed to kick me back.”


In our family devotions, we did a study on King Asa, out of 2 Chronicles. Later in the day, we were reviewing what we had learned.

When asking my seven year-old what book in the Bible we find the story of King Asa, he responded, “Second Chronicles of Narnia!”


When I went to get my driver’s license renewed, our local motor-vehicle bureau was packed.

The line inched along for almost an hour until the man ahead of me finally got his license.

He inspected his photo for a moment and commented to the clerk, “I was standing in line so long, I ended up looking pretty grouchy in this picture.”

The clerk looked at his picture closely.

“It’s okay,” he reassured the man, “That’s how you’re going to look when the cops pull you over anyway.”

A couple was relating their vacation experiences to a friend.

“It sounds as if you had a great time in Texas,” the friend observed. “But didn’t you tell me you were planning to visit Colorado?”

“Well,” the husband said, “we changed our plans because, uh…”

His wife cut in, “Oh, tell the truth, Dan!”

He fell silent and she continued, “You know, it’s just ridiculous. Dan simply will not ask for directions.”
