Ah, No One Says it Like Kids!!

Two old friends, on a plane returning home,  talking about church and a whole lot of political things. 
Being a US Congressman, my friend visits a lot of different churches in the area throughout the year, and he told me of what happened in a local church this past Easter. 
It made me roll with laughter, to the point of tears. The pastor of this Baptist church had called all of the little children, dressed in their cute Easter outfits, to the front of the church and had them sit around him. He said, "Today is Easter, and you all look so handsome and beautiful. Today we're going to talk about the resurrection. Does anyone know what the resurrection is?" One little boy raised his hand, and the pastor held the microphone in front of him and said, "Please, tell us what the resurrection is." The little boy, proud of himself because he knew the answer, said in a clear, loud voice "When you get one lasting more than four hours, you gotta call a doctor!" It took a solid five minutes before the pastor could speak again. There was so much laughter going on that his sermon was probably forgotten . . . you can bet that little boy's voice won't be forgotten anytime soon!

One of the ten commandments of acting applies her too: "never share a scene with children or animals, you're sure to be upstaged!"

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
