One Sunday, a pastor told his congregation that the church
needed some extra money. He asked the people to consider
donating a little more than usual into the offering plate.
He said that whoever gave the most would be able to pick out
three hymns. After the offering plates were passed, the
pastor glanced down and noticed that someone had placed ten
$100 bills in the offering.
He was so excited that he immediately shared his joy with
his congregation and said he'd like to personally thank the
person who placed the money in the plate. A very quiet,
elderly, saintly-looking lady all the way in the back shyly
raised her hand. The pastor asked her to come to the front.
Slowly she made her way to the pastor. He told her how
wonderful it was that she gave so much and in thanks asked
her to pick out three hymns.
Her eyes brightened as she looked over the congregation,
pointed to the three most handsome men in the building and
said, "I'll take him and him and him."
What is with the flooding in NJ?
A customer was in the pharmacy and she and fam are from no Jersey, she is originally from N Hingham!
I gently broke the news to the mom and her 3 little one that there was not a DD to be found! The kids' facial expressions were priceless.
Bill complains every time he travels to the west coast. He moans and complains that there is no DD there. Honestly, he can live for a few days. I shall remind him that you live there now and have chance of getting it any time soon.
I know exactly what you mean, Hedgie. For me it just seems they are getting more and more bad news. First a 9.0 quake, then a horrible tsunami and now the nuclear problems. A single event would have been bad enough. I just can't believe what those poor people are having to deal with.
On a different note - it was 23 degrees this morning! YIKES! But I think we'll see a little sunshine before the rain comes in, mostly tomorrow. Not bad rain like last week, but rain nonetheless. The good news is our weekend weather shows temps in the 70s!!! Woo Hoo!!!! I'll be opening windows WIDE!
Joan-Thank you so much for the darling St Patrick's Day card! So much detail. I love it!
As for my health... I think I am on the mend. I am doing all I can to stay well. I did have a meltdown on Sunday night, and thought, uh-oh.....as that is sometimes more due to not feeling well than the issues I am melting down about. But, I think I just needed to release some toxins...which we all need to do from time to time.
Our carbon monoxide detector alarm went off. It was flashing "Call 911 and get to fresh air". Talk about scary!!!!! I hated to call 911 since it didn't seem like a real emergency and we could always just go outside to get fresh air so I called the utility company and they came out and tested our house. The level isn't supposed to be over 35 to be safe and ours was at 29. The guy that came out thinks it was from Brandon's truck, even though he opens the garage door before he starts the truck and then immediately leaves but I guess it can still leak into the house. I had to open all the windows and turn on all the ceiling fans to air out the house. Then I had to shut everything and he turned the furnace back on and retested it and the reading was at 1 so he doesn't think it was the furnace. That's the only thing we have in the house that is gas.
I'm still on edge hoping the alarm doesn't go off again. That sucker is loud!!
I would have been scared, too!!! You did the right thing, though, Jennifer. Glad to know all seems to be well now. There are times when I wish we had an attached garage, but when I hear things like this, I'm glad we don't. It is scary!
I'm really hungry so I think I'm going to get something to eat.
Jennifer- WOW that blister looks ouchy.... Preston is so very cute and precious.
Hedgie- Hope you continue feeling better.
Joanne- I have watched nothing about Japan. I just can't handle such a tragedy.
Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.
Joan - you probably have the right idea - staying away from the tv. Like I said, I only watch a little bit because it is so difficult to deal with. Plus the media tends to create even MORE drama - like there isn't enough as it is.
My friend's daughter just posted there is a newstruck outside her dorm at the Univeristy of DE. I did turn our news on now to see what's up. I remember hearing something about UDel yesterday, but can't remember what. It wasn't a bad thing, just something that was happening.
I have been to the store and put the groceries away. I'll make dinner in a little bit. Just a casserole using left over turkey breast. I bought fresh broccoli and zucchini as well - those are my favorite veggies of late!
We have had Camron & Conrad with us for the past few days and daddy just came to pick them up. Both of us are really 'done in'... it will be so nice to get away for our anniversary the next couple of days.
Don't want to jinx it but I'm feeling a bit better today. I hope it continues!
Caterina - you must be exhausted! Take care and sleep well!
Joanne - mmm...I am lovin' zucchini lately too!
Jen - glad you all are safe and it wasn't a big deal.
Hello to all of you!
I am making cauliflower mac and cheese...don't think it's going to be "stunning", but I always follow the recipe the right way the first time. It's a low fat one so I think that's the issue Thinking next time I'll make my regular full fat full flavor mac and cheese and just add the cauliflower in. LOL
It's too bad that all the people who are smart enough to run the country are busy teaching school.
