    True story about me.

    When I was early elementary school age, the Baptist church on the corner rounded us neighborhood kids up for Vacation Bible School one summer.

    I proudly told my Grandma "I'm going to the West Hill Bathless Church!"

    Anecdote from the Reader's Digest:

    My 50-something friend Nancy and I decided to introduce her mother to the magic of the Internet.

    Our first move was to access the popular "Ask Jeeves" site, and we told her it could answer any question she had.

    Nancy's mother was very skeptical until Nancy said, "It's true, Mom. Think of something to ask it."

    As I sat with fingers poised over the keyboard, Nancy's mother thought a minute, then responded, "How is Aunt Helen feeling?"

    Hi Patti

    Pretty funny story about the Bathless Church. Especially since they practice Baptism
    by full immersion.

    Nancy's mother is a classic case of someone who didn't have the full concept explained
    to her. I just read a book about "The Wimpy Kid" by Jeff Kinney. Our young hero
    was trying to do the same thing with a Magic 8 Ball.

    Hi Peter, Welcome to the Board.

    "The future ain't what it used to be."
    -Yogi Berra

    Someone asked Yogi "What time is it?" Yogi replied "You mean now?"

    His sayings actually made sense, too, hahaha.

    Hi Kids

    Here are three jokes from Garrison Keillor's radio show.

    When Ole's son Torvald won a gold medal at the Olympics, Ole was so proud he
    had it bronzed.

    What's the difference between a Norskie and a canoe.
    Answer: A canoe will sometimes tip.

    Sven went all out and bought Lena a piano for her birthday. A couple weeks
    later he took the piano back to the store and brought home a clarinet. "Vell,"
    he said, "Vit a clarinet at least she von't sing."

    And From "Introduction to Musical Instruments":

    How to wind up with a million dollars: start with two million and open an
    accordion store.

    Definition of a gentleman: a guy who can play the bagpipes and doesn't.

    Rock
