Winter just doesn’t want to let go, does it. April 15th and the ground is snow covered! AGAIN! I don’t know what the temperature is, but you know its cold when the ground is white! When will it end, and what will summer bring, if spring is winterlike!

Our hearts go out to Mary Bauer who lost her home and everything she owns in a fire last week. Not only her home, but her garage and her car. Thank goodness she was able to get out of the house with no injuries. I understand that her daughter was driving by and saw the flames, woke Mary and got her out. Keep Mary in your prayers.

I don’t have any results on the Fireworks Fund Raiser, but I did hear that somebody paid $150.00 for a dozen eggs. Sounds like they must have been the golden eggs, laid by that goose in one of the old fairy tales we heard as children, doesn’t it?

Today is the big tax day, and I hope you all got your taxes done and mailed out. I am sure the people who prepare taxes will be happy when this day is done. I didn’t get mine done until yesterday, but the people at H and R Block were very gracious and took care of me in good time.

I know I’ve shared some of these little gems with you before, but they bear repeating.

REASONS NOT TO MESS WITH CHILDREN

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small.

The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.

The little girl said “When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah.”

The teacher asked, “What if Jonah went to hell?”

The little girl replied, “Then you ask him.”

A kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child’s work.

As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl replied, “I’m drawing God.”

The teacher paused and said, “But nobody knows what God looks like.”

Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied “They will in a minute.”

On that note, I will say, have a great day, and don’t put your winter coat away!
