I’ll Take Three

“One Sunday a pastor told his congregation that the church needed some extra money and asked the people to prayerfully consider giving a little extra in 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 a $1,000 bill in 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.

And there sat our Rosie 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 thanksgiving 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!”

Chick season!

It’s chick season once again with farm stores clearing out whole sections of merchandise to make space for the little peepers. As peepers go, most single men are anxious for a different kind of chick season while the chicks are anxious for the warm season to wear their spring clothes.

Everyone wants something!

King of the Mountain

The title of this post brought back memories from childhood when, like the little bird in the picture, we played King of the Mountain.

It took several recalls to remember the name of the game when the goal was to prevent anyone from knocking you off the top of a pile of dirt. Many hours of fun and laughter without a phone or computer.

While we understand that children do still play outside, our internet search for the name of “King of the Mountain” returned computer game after computer game.

If you are searching for outdoor activities to play with your children, the people at this website have a list of 30. We have very fond memories of laughing and playing those games and some of them as adults like Red Rover, our favorite!
