LUTHER NEWS: Taking the cold water plunge for cancer

Jamie Martin is a very brave woman! She took the plunge! No, not that plunge, she took that one a long time ago. This one was in support of cancer research!

Jamie was challenged by her nephew Tristan, to take the plunge and she did! Apparently the way it works is that if you are challenged by someone who has taken the plunge, you must follow suit, or pay $100.00.

Jamie took the plunge into the Little Manistee, and there is a video of her doing just that on Facebook! The shock of the cold water actually brought on a bloody nose! I think I would have paid the $100.00.

Way to go, Jamie!  We are all very proud of you!


A distraught senior citizen phoned her doctor’s office. “Is it true,” she wanted to know, “that the medication you prescribed has to be taken for the rest of my life?”

“Yes, I’m afraid so,” the doctor told her.

There was a moment of silence before the senior lady replied, “I’m wondering, then, just how serious is my condition, because this prescription is marked ‘NO REFILLS.’”

An older Jewish gentleman was on the operating table awaiting surgery and he insisted that his son, a renowned surgeon, perform the operation. As he was about to get the anesthesia, he asked to speak to his son.

“Yes, Dad, what is it?”

“Don’t be nervous, son; do your best and just remember, if it doesn’t go well, if something happens to me… your mother is going to come and live with you and your wife…”

Aging; Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Thought for the week; Playing second fiddle is a great deal better than being left out of the orchestra.

Have a great week.
