7,000 Words

Two weeks of classes, then exam week. We're all in need of prayer right now, students and teachers alike.

I have received or spotted several funny pictures or comic strips lately that I thought I'd put together as a blog post with few words. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this post is worth 7,000 words.

For some of you old-timers who remember the old black and white TV series with Jackie Gleason called "The Honeymooners"....

(For the sake of you "young things"... Ralph Kramden always said to his wife Alice, "One of these days ... one of these days ... POW, right in the kisser! Bang, zoom, straight to the moon!")

In case you cannot read the note above, it says, "Please clear any unused time off the microwave when you are finished. Some of us have O.C.D. and leftover time drives us crazy. Thanks!"

Here's a comic strip in honor of April 15 - the Ides of April....

How can fellow employees ever compete with the "Employee of the Month" pictured below?

Here's a clever ad....

Is it a bug or a feature?

Someone spotted a scene too good not to capture on camera....


"Discontent is the penalty we must pay for being ungrateful for what we have." - unknown

Hunt for the good points in other people. Remember, they have to do the same in your case.

    I recognized the Donutland and police cars! It was taken in my hometown!

    Jenni, that’s amazing! Where is Donutland?

    Cedar Falls, Iowa. Donutland closed several years ago and is now a Italian restaurant.

    Jenni, I’m concerned about the safety of Cedar Falls! If Donutland closed, it must mean that your city cut its police force! 😎

    The funny thing is…those police cars are actually from the neighboring town, not Cedar Falls! So obviously Waterloo was suffering from a lack of security that day! 🙂

    I am actually from Waterloo. CF/W’loo are kind of like Greenville/Taylors. Drive from one to the other & you never know it if you miss the sign.

    I almost caught you at church the other day to introduce myself, but I was too far away and too many people got between us & I lost you! I’ll keep trying! (I’m the same one that sent you the email about MFM a couple weeks ago.)

    Please do introduce yourself sometime. My wife and I would enjoy meeting you.
