Christian Rock on a Sunday

When I was in Bible College, many years ago I loathed Christian Rock. One of my roommates, Dave Alderman, was a big fan of the late Larry artist I especially disliked at the time.  I thought he was too irreverent, and we won't even discuss the length of his hair. I was very strait-laced, conservative and narrow minded back in the 70's.  Recently, I ran across some of his music on YouTube...and I must say...I was Dave this post is for you. He's still not my first choice in music, but he definitely had a ministry...and was a gifted songwriter.

His and Her Road Trips

HIS and HERS Road Trip


Pulls off at wrong exit.

opens window

asks directions of a knowledgeable police officer

Arrives at destination presently.



Pulls off at wrong exit absolutely positive it's the correct one.

Drives five miles into wilderness, still thinks he's right.

Drives an extra 5 miles just in case.

Finally rolls down window just to get fresh air

Pulls up to a 7 -11

Gets three hot-dogs, a large slurpee, and beef jerky

Asks person behind counter how to get back onto the highway.

Gets back into car.

Laughs at the idea of looking at a map as he pulls away from the 7-11.

Drives down a dirt road with no street lights insisting this is the way back because guy from 7-11 said it was.

Almost hits a deer

Curses the night

Curses you

Curses the large slurpee

Drives and fiddles with radio.

Yells at you for suggesting the map again

Admits he didn't want to go to Thanksgiving at your sister's anyway.

He hates your sister.

Ever since she called him a pernicious weasel

He had to look up pernicious.

Couldn't find a dictionary.

Finally found a dictionary

Couldn't spell pernicious.

Seethes at the memory of it all

But she is laughing inside...

And of course you're still lost.

Urine Test

Like most folks in this country,
I had a job.  I Photobucketworked, they paid me. Photobucket I paid my taxes & the government distributed my taxes
as it saw Photobucketfit.

In order to get that paycheck, in my case, I was required to

pass a random urine Photobuckettest (with which I had no problem). 

What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people

who don't have to pass a urine test.
So, here is my question:
Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because
I had to pass one to earn it for them?

Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet.
 I did, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting
on their  BUTT -- doing drugs Photobucketwhile I worked.

Can you imagine how much money
Photobucketeach state would save if people
had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?
I guess we could call the program "URINE OR YOU'RE OUT"!

Pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don't. Hope you all will

pass it along, though.
Something has to change in this country - AND SOON!
P.S. Just a thought… all politicians Photobucket
should have to pass
a urine test too!  We won't need a stool sample because we know they're all full of X%&#!!!

Financial Planning 101


Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business.

When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, he decided he needed to find a wife with whom to share his fortune.
One evening, at an investment meeting, he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.
Her natural beauty took his breath away."I may look like just an ordinary guy," he said to her,
"But in just a few years my father will die and I will inherit $200 million".
"Impressed, the woman asked for his business card and three days later, she became his stepmother.
Women are so much better at financial planning than men.

Gods · Adam

After God had created Adam he noticed that he looked very lonely. He decided to help.

He said "Adam, I've decided to make you a woman. She'll love you, cook for you, be sweet to you, and understand you."

Adam said "Great! How much will she cost me?"

The answer came back, "An arm and a leg."

"Well," said Adam "what can I get for a rib?"

My wife forwarded this to me.  She thought it was hilarious and right on the mark...As for me, I don't it.

After three weeks in the Garden of Eden, God came to visit Eve. 'So, how is everything going ?' inquired God.

'It is all so beautiful, God,' she replied. 'The sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking, the smells, the sights, everything is wonderful, but I have just one problem

'It's these breasts you have given me. The middle one pushes the other two out and I am constantly knocking them with my arms, catching them on branches and snagging them on bushes. They're a real pain.'

And Eve went on to tell God that since many other parts of her body came in pairs, such as her limbs, eyes, ears, etc. She felt that having only two breasts might leave her body more 'symmetrically balanced'.

'That's a fair point,' replied God, 'But it was my first shot at this you know. I gave the animals six breasts so I figured that you needed only half of those but I see that you are right. I will fix it up right away.'

And God reached down, removed the middle breast and tossed it into the bushes.

Three weeks passed and God once again visited Eve in the Garden of Eden.

'Well, Eve, how is my favorite creation?'

'Just fantastic,' she replied, 'but for one oversight. You see, all the animals are paired off. The ewe has a ram and the cow has her bull. All the animals have a mate except me. I feel so alone.'

God thought for a moment and said, 'You know, Eve, you are right. How could I have overlooked this ? You do need a mate and I will immediately create a man from a part of you. Let's see...where did I put that useless boob ?'

Now doesn't THAT make more sense than the rib story ?

Vacation Continued

Checked out the winners of Food Networks Food Feuds St Louis. They were 17th Street BBQ for ribs and Park Avenue Coffee for Gooey Butter Cake. We think Michael Simon was correct on Park Avenue Coffee but wrong on 17th Street. Pappy's Smokehouse Ribs that we tried earlier in the week were just a tad better.  Park Avenue Coffee did deliver a superior Gooey Butter Cake though.

Then off to Alton IL to see the statue of Robert Wadlow, their Gentleman Giant. He held the record of the World's Tallest Man...8'11"
tall and weighing in at 490 pounds. After taking that pic, it was travel up the Great River Road to Grafton IL stopping to view the legendary Piasa Bird along the way.

On the way home, we stopped at St Louis landmark and award winning Crown Candy Kitchen for supper.  Their ice cream is out of this world good.  Taking Friday off to see a movie...then on the road again Saturday.
