There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved. It is God's finger on man's shoulder.
'Tis another Friday the 13th. Superstitious? Nope, not me. For me, it's a blessing in disguise. An early payday. Just means I have a few more days to pay those pesky things we call bills. Then again, it will give me a few more opportunities to purchase more Devil Dog and Snipers Brew Coffee. We tried the Snipers Brew for the first time this morning. We both concurred, a most tasty concoction. One I'm sure to include in future love boxes to my soldiers. Of course, I was reminded to make sure that it was the type that had been ground already. It was pointed out that most soldiers don't have coffee grinders in their hooches. Darn it!! Ahh, the smell is intoxicating. I love grinding and brewing fresh coffee beans.
Tis also the day for posting the funnies. A bit of wit to bring about that beauteous smile to the faces of those who possess a sense of humor. How sad the world would be without humor. God must have the greatest sense of humor. Why else would he send a plague of frogs? Yes, I know... still must have been pretty funny to see frogs falling from the sky.
The priest was preparing a man for his long day's journey into night.
Whispering firmly, the priest said, "Denounce the devil! Let him know how little you think of his evil!"
The dying man said nothing so the priest repeated his order.
Still the dying man said nothing.
The priest asked, "Why do you refuse to denounce the devil and his evil?"
The dying man said, "Until I know where I'm heading, I don't think I ought to aggravate anybody."

You can ring my bell...
A man is walking down the street one day when he notices a very small boy
trying to press a doorbell on a house across the street. However, the boy
was very small and the doorbell was just too high for him to reach.
After watching the boy's efforts for some time, the man moved closer to
the boy's position.
He stepped smartly across the street, walked up behind the little fellow
and, placing his hand kindly on the child's shoulder, leans over and
gives the doorbell a solid ring.
Crouching down to the child's level, the man smiles benevolently and
says, "There you go! And now what, my little man?"
And with a grin, the boy replies,
"Now we run!"
And on a purely personal note...for the man dear to my heart. Safe travels, Darlin, watch out for all those asshole drivers! They're everywhere...
"May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand."
And so it goes......
