Just some food for thought today...
We put manure on our gardens to make them grow. Why is it that when the church is full of "manure" it doesn't grow?

Sorry girls, I just couldn't help giggling when I saw Dan spreading it on the garden today.

I thought of a funny thing that happened at the beginning of Whiz Kids this year and thought you all would enjoy it.

The beginning of the school year for Whiz Kids is a busy time. We are getting new applications and contacting parents and making sure that any kids from the previous year are invited. There was one child in particular who was in the 4th grade last year and we wondered if she wanted to be in the middle school program, which takes place on another day. I texted Mom (note: I refer to all the mothers of the Whiz Kids as Mom) and found out that she was still in 4th grade, so I asked if she wanted her to be in Whiz Kids again. Mom said yes, and we made arrangements, via text, about how to get her application in since it was very close to the start date, and because she had been in an auto accident and wasn't able to drive for a few days, plus she didn't have a car to use.

On Sunday, September 17th, we texted back and form and how to get it turned in, and we concluded that I would come by her house to pick up the form. On the next day, September 18th, oddly enough one month after the last post here, I hadn't heard from her so, I typed:

Me: Can I come over soon?
Mom: That's fine.
Me: Now is ok?
Mom: Yes, I'm getting in the bath, but you can come.

Now, I stop. What? She's getting in the bath, so how can I come and get the form? So I type:

Me: Okaaaayy...do you want me to wait half an hour?
Mom: Do what you want
Mom: I'm getting in the tub now. I'll see you when you get here.

Now I'm REALLY confused, and thinking that her child is living with a parent who certainly has fewer boundaries than I have, and what is that doing to her? So I type:

Me: I don't want to disturb you. Would this afternoon be better?
Mom: You're not disturbing me, but do what you want.
Me: I will wait and text you beforehand.
Mom: Ok whatever you want
Mom: I'm out of the tub babe
Mom: Are you stalling?
Mom: I want you to know that I am not angry.

"Babe?" What is she talking about? Trying to be honest (I wasn't angry, just confused) I text:

Me: I didn't think you were! Just didn't want to disturb your bath!
Mom: Oh my goodness! This is Claire! emoticon I thought I was texting my boyfriend
Me: Hahaha
Mom: O my goodness lol

I still laugh out loud at that exchange! Hahaha! Hahahahahahahahaha!

My friend from Iowa sent me this one.

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken."
She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else laughed.
My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal.
I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals ........very much.


I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office.
I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.
The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was.
I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.
She sent me back to the principal's office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again.
I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am.

Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous person I admired most.

I told her, "Colonel Sanders." Guess where I am now...

Yesterday we had our first customer for the yard sale and they didn't even wait til we were open! A robin flew into the garage where we were working and then hung around the rafters the whole time, even though we let all the doors open! I sure hope he got out after we left so that we don't have a big birdy mess to clean up.

LOL! Poor thing was scared silly and just kept hopping from rafter to rafter above our heads. I thought about going in to get a hat. LOL!

Oh my goodness, Carolyn, that was hilarious! I couldn't stop laughing at the mental image of that spider. Thank goodness you got him (or her). You need a tee shirt - I did battle with a wolf spider and won!

What a great way to get your exercise.

And so it begins again .....

Last year when Leland was at Synod, I did nightly battle with Carolina Wolf Spiders. Big old monsters that make you wish you could run the other way.

As soon as Leland got home from Synod last year, I had him caulk the particular spot where I thought they were getting in. We saw no more spiders after that, until ....

Yesterday .... the first one appeared.

This evening .... another one was right by our bedroom door (Leland stomped that sucker flat!)

A few minutes ago, HazelNut spotted another one in the middle of the living room. Now you have to realize that I've been packing various and sundry things, so there are heavy boxes everywhere and if a spider disappears between two boxes, I can't shove boxes aside to get him.

I whopped this one with a shoe .... carefully picked up the shoe .... and he had disappeared!!! Where in blazes had he gotten to??? I turned to my right and there he was about 6 inches behind my bare right foot! I whopped again .... and missed. He zipped over towards a file box by my chair, with me whopping every few inches!! Then he slipped under the piano bench (which has a case of copy paper underneath it, along with the old slide projector and a waste basket. I swatted again and he ran back towards me! ACK!!! Whop!!! He started to go around me then doubled back between my still bare feet. I jumped, swatted again and he tried to crawl inside the skirt of the armchair, and that's when I got him!!! That vile critter is dead as the proverbial doorknob (or door nail, take your pick). It then took me 20 minutes to get my breath back again.

And that, ladies, was my 2 minutes of cardio for this week!!!

Dan found this funny Mother's Day Story and read it in church - I just had to pass it along.

Two young children saved up their allowance to buy their mom some flowers for mother's day. They gave her a nice potted plant, but the little boy apologized that it wasn't very much.

"We saw a beautiful flower arrangement in the flower shop," he said. "But we didn't have enough money to buy it. It had roses and a pretty ribbon that said Mother on it. It had another ribbon that said Rest in Peace. That would have been perfect because you are always saying you wish for a little peace and quiet around here so you can rest."

Love that Carolyn! emoticon

It reminds me of when our son was about 4 years old. We were sitting around the In-Law's table having a financial discussion and Dan mentioned that "money doesn't grow on trees." David piped up and asked, "Where does it grow, Daddy?" emoticon

LOL!! Good one, Bonnie!!

Personal anecdote -- My Mom spent her jr. high and high school years in the Boston area (Newton Highlands, to be specific) and she is every inch the proper Bostonian (despite the fact that her Mother was a small-town southern belle from SC). Over the decades it has become a family joke that whenever something doesn't amuse Mom, she will say, "Well, we certainly didn't do such things in Boston!"

When my nephew was about 9 years old, Mom had once again said they didn't do this or that in Boston. My nephew looked at her, a bit puzzled, and asked "Grandmama, did they ever do ANYthing in Boston?"

The rest of us have been laughing ever since (and that was about 20 years ago!!)

Blessings and Laughter,
Carolyn B in SC

Cute!!

It is quite cool for May. When I was a kid, it was usually plenty hot by early May. We had a good friend whose grandparents lived down the street from us and they always opened the pool with a big BBQ on Mother's Day. I remember year after year, thinking that the pool was never going to open and it was already so hot!!

I'm ready for the pool, but I want warmer weather before it opens!!

I know it's Spring, but it's been chilly the last few days with a threat of frost at night here in central PA so here's some fun wisdom from Frosty...

"All I Need to Know about Life I Learned From a Snowman.... "

--It's okay if you're a little bottom heavy.

--Hold your ground, even when the heat is on.

--Wearing white is always appropriate.

--Winter is the best of the four seasons.

--It takes a few extra rolls to make a good midsection.

--There's nothing better than a foul weather friend.

--We're all made up of mostly water.

--You know you've made it when they write a song about you.

--Accessorize! Accessorize! Accessorize!

--Avoid yellow snow.

--Don't get too much sun.

--It's embarrassing when you can't look down and see your feet.

--It's fun to hang out in your front yard.

--There's no stopping you once you're on a roll.

We're very computer savvy, but when it comes to cell phones, we want the minimum!! We figure it's for OUR convenience and not everybody else's! Since we're not into game playing or texting or using a phone to look something up online, we opted for very simple flip phones and they work wonderfully well for us! We keep them primarily for emergencies or for when my husband is at the store and calls to say, "They don't have any this or that. What do you want me to get?"

We had gotten tired of paying $50 or so for a phone we used less than 20 minutes per month (yes, really!). A friend told us about Consumer Cellular which has no contract, low price, and if you find you are going to need more minutes at a certain time, you just bump it up and then later return it to where you normally have it. Since it was going to cost only $10 more for a second phone, my husband insisted on getting me one so that if I wanted to go out to walk, I would be able to call for help if I needed it. That was just over a year ago, but I was so thankful to have my cell phone when I discovered our line was dead!

When I called AT&T to report our dead line, they said they would look into it and would call me back if they needed access. I said, "Really? What number will you call?" They were going to call our home phone number. I patiently explained that I had just told her that line is dead. D-E-A-D!!! Her brilliant response .... "Oh!"

I have to say there are times when I enjoy pointing out the flaws in their logic!!! People just don't seem to know how to think and process information anymore.

Ha-Ha, "Clear" Those smart phones aren't really so smart after all!

We had to replace our Trac phones last year. I opted for the freebie that the company offered which was a flip phone with few capabilities - no voice message mailbox, , not good for web browsing, etc. . Dan went out and bought a smart phone for his Trac phone plan and he still doesn't know how to text or do anything on it. LOL! I use mine all the time, mostly for texting since it won't do much else - I keep telling him we should swap phones!

Haha! Husbands certainly can be creatures of habit, especially mine! I'd say more on that, but I can't think of a funny incident at the moment!

But here's a funny. Fritz is not really known for his sense of humor; he's mostly very serious and intentional and disciplined. So when he does say something funny, it's memorable. One of the funniest things has been with his cell phone.

Fritz was a Luddite for years, saying he didn't want a cell phone. He didn't want people to be able to reach him at all times. But last summer, when my cell died, I had to go buy a new one. I asked him, literally as I was leaving one meeting and passing him as he was in another meeting, saying, "If I find a deal, do you want a cell phone?" To my surprise, he didn't even hesitate when he said, "Yes." So, I went out and bought us two Samsung S7's at a two for one deal.

Since it's a smartphone, Fritz is using it all the time for work--messages, emails, Word documents, even phone calls! Since it would take forever to type on the phone, he mostly uses voice recognition. And because voice recognition isn't perfect, there are things you have to deal with, like the way it recognizes when he speaks his name. It's come out as Prince, For its, Frets, and some other ones I can't remember. Claire is almost always Clear.

I have my share of fun with that, too. My favorite is when, for some unknown reason, it will convert what I say into gibberish German. Still trying to figure that one out. Hahahaha!

Oh my goodness - Husbands can be so funny!

Dan is a creature of habit - he has to have soup and a sandwich every day for lunch so I always try to have it ready when he comes in. His sandwiches are always made with miracle ship spread, ham, cheese, lettuce and tomato. I got tired of that a long time ago so I usually eat a salad or leftovers. LOL!

That's a good one, Bonnie!! LOL!!

When Leland and I first married, he still had one more semester of college before graduation. So, I would have lunch all ready for him so he could just sit right down, eat, and dash to his next class.

Now, Leland was an extremely picky eater all his life (until we married!), and I knew he wouldn't eat cheese. So I was very careful about what I bought at the grocery store.

One particular day, I had gotten one of those Hamburger Helper things so that he would have a nice hot meal, instead of just a sandwich. I had it all ready and staying warm on the stove. Then I went to the front door where I could see when he started coming across the campus toward our apartment. As soon as I spotted him, I poured our iced tea, and began to serve our plates, setting his on the table the moment he walked in the door. He asked God's blessing on our meal. Then, he took a bite ..... and set his fork down. Something was wrong!! (Imagine the newly wed wife trying so hard and she's clearly failed, but how??).

"What is it, dear?"

Hesitantly, he answered, "Well ..... it has cheese in it." (Oh heavens, no! Not that!!)

I said, "Oh no, darling, I was very careful not to get any of the cheesy ones! It doesn't have cheese in it."

"It has cheese in it!"

After a couple more rounds, I went and pulled the box out of the trashcan to prove to him that it had no cheese.

It had cheese!!!! Since ingredients are listed by weight, it actually had more salt in it than it had cheese, but oh, yes, it definitely had cheese! LOL!!!

Bless him, he ate it anyway. But you can bet I read ingredient lists carefully after that!!

Love that one Carolyn! I especially loved the accent. LOL!

I heard something similar from a Christian psychologist once too about PWs (minus the accent!) He said there are 3 types of PWs:

Those who are God-called to be PWs.
Those who aren't called but who go and make the best of it because their husbands are called
Those who go kicking and screaming into ministry and would do anything short of murder to get out of it.

Ladies, how is it that we have allowed this wonderful thread to fall by the wayside?

Let me jump-start it again with one that actually happened to us.

My husband was preaching his candidating sermon at a small church in (very) rural Alabama. The evening before, we were eating dinner with the Clerk of Session and his wife. Just as we were about to sit down, the Elder turned to Leland and said,

"Ya know, Preacher ..... there's just 3 kinds of preachers in this world. Them as what's God-called .... them as what's Mama-called .... and them as jes' bundled up and went! And purty soon, we gonna know just which one you is!"

Well, they extended a call, and while I'm not sure whether we bundled, we definitely went!!! LOL!! We were there for 3-1/2 years.

A middle-aged man wasn't feeling well, so he went to the doctor for a check up.

After a thorough examination, the doctor said, "Well, based on my examination, the best thing for you is to cut out all sweets and fatty foods, give up alcohol, and stop smoking."

The man said, "Well, to be honest with you Doc, I don't deserve the best. What's the second best?"

My kitty left me a hair ball this morning when I got up. Didn't hear her because I was upstairs sleeping. emoticon

one thing that made me really LOL on facebook the other day:

"I need an alarm clock with a ring tone that sounds like my cat puking, because nothing gets me out of bed faster than the sound of my cat puking!"


sooo true! I only thought of that the other morning when I heard my cat puking - know that noise anywhere, and you have to get there as fast as you can to see where he's puking and what it's landing on!!

Haha, Carolyn!

I have to keep this thread in mind when something funny happens. Right now I can't think of anything, which is funny. Haha!

Here's an oldie but a goodie --

On their way to get married, a young couple is involved in a fatal car accident. The couple found themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven. While waiting, they began to wonder: Could they possibly get married in Heaven? When St. Peter showed up, they asked him. St. Peter said, "I don't know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out,'" and he left. The couple sat and waited, and waited. Two months passed and the couple were still waiting. While waiting, they began to wonder what would happen if it didn't work out; could you get a divorce in heaven? After yet another month, St. Peter finally returned, looking somewhat bedraggled. "Yes," he informed the couple, "You can get married in Heaven." "Great!" said the couple, "But we were just wondering, what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?" St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard onto the ground. "What's wrong?" asked the frightened couple. "OH, COME ON!," St. Peter shouted, "It took me three months to find a minister up here! Do you have any idea how long it'll take me to find a lawyer?"

I've had some misspellings before, but I don't think they generated any real humor. LOL! But a writer friend of mine shared this one on FB yesterday that I thought was pretty good regarding poor communicating.



I'll have to think some more about those bloopers. emoticon

Okay, so you ladies got my memory jogged. When we were at our first church there was a man named Johnny who didn't speak very clearly due to some developmental delay. Fritz was asking for prayer requests during the church service and Johnny spoke his request, which sounded to Fritz like "Pray for Rex Ray." So Fritz did, after which Johnny said more clearly "X-ray! Pray for my X-ray!" I can't remember if we prayed for his x-ray at that point, though. Ha!

And then there was the time when our son Will, the tiny shepherd on Christmas Eve, kept uncovering Baby Jesus. I'm sure we all have stories of adorable things kids do during Christmas programs. Maybe we should save that for Christmas time!

Bulletin bloopers are great! Have you made any, Bonnie? I remember one, again, from our first church, where we were asked to pray for a man with dancer (instead of cancer), which is kind of sad, except that when we told the man about it, he sat up as much as he could and did a little dance. He was a fellow pastor with a great sense of humor! He is with the Lord now, probably laughing at something!

Love those bulletin bloopers. I have to be careful because I type the bulletin each week. emoticon

For a couple of years, I put together tidbits from bulletins and church newsletters throughout our denomination, for our denominational magazine. Sometimes I would get so tickled over typos and glitches that weren't caught before they were printed.

One of our churches in Florida had in their order of worship, a "Coral Response"!!! I told my husband that only in Florida would they have a coral (rather than choral) response! LOL!!

Another one requested prayer for a member who was about to undergo an "Abominable CT scan"!!

Will add others as I think of them. emoticon

Blessings,
Carolyn

Yeah, I thought the same thing. I have heard so many funny experiences of others but my mind goes totally blank when it's my turn to share the fun. LOL!

I love this idea, Bonnie! You ARE the idea person! Of course, right now I can't think of a funny story. But when I do, I'll post it here!

Sometimes we just need a good giggle! This thread will offer us a place to share those true, giggle-worthy stories about our families, church families, ministry faux pas, etc.
