Okay, I'll tell ya'll plainly......I was a lazy good for nothing all day today. I got Pete off to work, got Bubba over pickin' peas, then put Bug on a tape and slept until time to go get Bubba! I am sitting here drinking coffee and trying to wake up as I type. Shame on me! Thunder outside....scattered thunderstorms. Hope we get rain out of it. So I have frightened Boston Terriers trying to crawl all over me while I sit here. I am going to share a little humor with you today......PG-13. I liked it 'cause the man in the story is from TEXAS. Hope you get a chuckle.
An attractive young woman was waiting at a crowded city bus stop. She was decked out in a rather tight skirt with match- ing boots and jacket.
As the bus rolled up, and it became her turn to get on, she realized that her skirt was too tight to allow her to make the first step on the bus.
So, slightly embarrassed, she reached behind her and unzipped her skirt a little thinking that this would give her enough slack to get her leg up to the first step. Again she tried but the skirt was still too tight.
Even more embarrassed, she once again reached behind her and unzipped her skirt a little more. For a second time she at- tempted the step, and once again just couldn't get her foot that high.
It was just as she was reaching behind her a third time that this big Texan right behind her picked her up from the waist and placed her lightly on the step.
Well, she was not happy to be man-handled and turned on the would-be hero, "You have no right to touch me, mister! I don't even know you!"
At this the Texan drawled: "Well ma'am, normally I would agree with you but after you unzipped my pants three times, I kind a figured that we was friends."

Today's journal recommendation features a young lady and her family. They just moved into a new house. She has an amusing way of telling you the things that go on within their lives. She loves horses and rides when she can. I regret I do not know her first name! But you will enjoy Life N Stuff just the same.
Now lets reflect upon the Word and our words. We are still in Proverbs, the book of Wisdom. Chapter 16, vs 32: "It is better to be slow-tempered than famous, it is better to have self-control than to control an army." Then in Chapter 17, we see in vs. 9: "Love forgets mistakes; nagging about them parts the best of friends." and then in vs. 14: "It is hard to stop a quarrel once it starts, so don't let it begin." Okay........let's face it. It takes two to argue! But it takes only one to prevent it, or stop it. This can be hard to do. Personally, I like to be right. And some people seem to just bait you with their words and attitudes. But I ALWAYS have the choice not to participate. You may want to argue with me about that. (lol) Well, try telling it to God and see how far it plays. Believe me, I have!
