Just a little bit of wit to inform you concerning what might have happened to some of those family members and friends who finished their earthly journey. You probably knew someone who followed one of these careers. Old plumbers never die; they just go to the minor leaks. Old baggage handlers never die; they just lose their grips. Old fashion designers never die; they just fad away. Old card players never die; they just shuffle off. Old florists never die; they just make other arrangements.

Travelin’, visitin’ and such: Reports are that Annie Brown and her friend, Mary Thompson both of Lake had a hankerin’ for some of the famously delicious burgers and fries from local restaurant, K’s Korner. So, friends Helen Watkins and Sarah Huff were alerted that a jaunt to Morton was in the making. The foursome ordered their meals, took all precautions, went to a pavilion at Farris Park, ate the desired treats (just as good as expected) and enjoyed a lengthy visit sharing memories and current family/community news.
Sittin’ and thinkin’: “ The visitor”...One day a man went to visit a church. He got there early, parked his car and got out. Another car pulled up near the driver, got out and said “I always park there! You took my place!” The visitor went inside for Sunday School, found an empty seat and sat down. A young lady from the church approached him and stated, “That’s my seat! You took my place!” The visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude welcome, but said nothing. After Sunday School, the visitor went into the sanctuary and sat down. Another member walked up to him and said “That’s where I always sit! You took my place!” The man was even more troubled by this treatment, but still He said nothing. Later as the congregation was praying for Christ to dwell among them, the visitor stood up, and his appearance began to change. Horrible scars became visible on his hands and on his sandeled feet. Someone in the congregation noticed him and called out. “What happened to you?” The man replied, as his hat became a crown of thorns, and a tear fell from his eye “I took your place.” When you read this, say a prayer. That’s all you have to do.
