Who's Your Favorite Bear

Who's your favorite bear? Is it Pooh Bear; Smokey the Bear; the Care Bears; or is it the Berenstein Bears?I can't resist Pooh Bear, but Smokey has a good point.  "Only you can prevent forest fires." And of coarse the Care Bears are an important part of my child hood memories. The Berenstein Bears are not my favorite, but they have good morals and they're cute.

why women lie...a moral story

Why women lie... a moral story 
  One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river, her thimble fell into the river. When she cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, "My dear child, why are you crying?" The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family. The Lord dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with sapphires.
"Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked. The seamstress replied, "No."
The Lord again dipped into the river. He held out a golden thimble studded with rubies.
"Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked. Again, the seamstress replied, "No."
The Lord reached down again and came up with a leather thimble .
"Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.. The seamstress replied, "Yes." The Lord was pleased with the woman's honesty and gave her all three thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy.

Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the water. When she cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked her, "Why are you crying?'' "Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into the river!"
The Lord went down into the water and came up withGeorge Clooney. "Is this your husband? The Lord asked.
"Yes," cried the seamstress.The Lord was furious. "You lied! That is an untruth!" The seamstress replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said "no" to George Clooney, you would have come up withBrad Pitt.
Then if I said "no" to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said "yes," you would have given me all three.. Lord, I'm not in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so THAT'S why I said "yes" to George Clooney.. And so the Lord let her keep him.
The moral of this story is:
Whenever a woman lies, it's for a good and honorable reason, and in the best interest of others. That's our story, and we're sticking to it.

An Old Farmers Advice

Old Farmer's Advice:

 Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.  

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance. 

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.. 

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.

Words that soak into your ears are whispered...not yelled. 

Meanness don't jes' happen overnight. 

Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads. 

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you. 

It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge. 

You cannot unsay a cruel word. 

Every path has a few puddles. 

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty. 

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway. 

Don't judge folks by their relatives. 

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.. 

Live a good, honorable life.. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time. 

Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you none. 

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain dance. 

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'. 

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got. 

The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'. 

Always drink upstream from the herd. 

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.. 

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in. 

If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.. 

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. 
Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God. 
Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight,
he'll just kill you.

What We Need and Want

Listen up fellas. While you think you are showing you care by fixing her car; unclogging the sinks;etc. I'm not saying we don't appreciate it. Because we do. Taking us out for a nice dinner. Giving us a card or a flower. These are romantic things that she needs sometimes. I know that most guys really don't wanna get mushy, gushy cards. Well guess what? You don't have to. The card can just be as simple as I'm thinking about you. If you really want to blow her mind make a home made card. Don't freak out or roll your eyes. It's not as hard as you would think. Dear ........... I just wanted you to know I was thinking about you. I would like to take you out Saturday at 8p. See you then.........  Something along those lines. Simple,sweet, and bonus points for thinking of yourself.Tell her she's wanted and needed and appreciated. And women listen up. Guys need to be respected. If you have a problem never talk about it in front of mixed company. It would make them feel like doing things for you if you appreciate what he does. For example: He works on your car or unclogs the sink. .......... I really appreciated you doing that. Thank you...............  And men are not mind readers sometimes you need to tell him what you want or need. You'll be surprised. NOW EVERYBODY LISTEN UP. It's a nice considerate thing to volunteer to rub his or her feet and or back just because. And we all 30 min. of space to chill out from our day when we 1st get home.  These little jesters mean a lot. Try it and let me know how it went.

The Unemployed Graduate



An unemployed graduate woke up one morning and checked his pocket. All he had left was $10. He decided to use it to buy food and then wait for death as he was too proud to go begging. He was frustrated as he could find no job, and nobody was ready to help him. 

He bought food and as he sat down to eat, an old man and two little children came along and asked him to help them with food as they had not eaten for almost a week.

He looked at them. They were so lean that he could see their bones. Their eyes had gone into the socket. With the last bit of compassion he had, he gave them the food. The old man and children prayed that God would bless and prosper him and then gave him a very old coin. The young graduate said to them 'you
need the prayer more than I do'. 

With no money, no job, no food, the young graduate went under the bridge to rest and wait for death. As he was about to sleep, he saw an old newspaper on the ground. He picked it up, and suddenly he saw an advertisement for people with old coins to come to a certain address.

He decided to go there with the old coin the old man gave him. Upon arriving, he gave the proprietor the coin. The proprietor screamed, brought out a big book and showed the young graduate a photograph. This same old coin was worth 3 million dollars. The young graduate was overjoyed as the proprietor gave him a bank draft for 3 million dollars within an hour. He collected the Bank Draft and went in search of the old man and little

By the time he got to where he left them eating, they had gone. He asked the owner of the canteen if he knew them. He said no but they left a note for you. He quickly opened the note thinking it would lead him to find them. 

This is what the note said: 'You gave us your all and we have rewarded you back with the coin,' signed God the Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. 1 Kings 17:10-16; Matthew 11:28-30 

**It doesn't hurt helping others with or without receiving back.


Mothers 2


Real Mothers don't eat quiche;
They don't have time to make it.

Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils
Are probably in the sandbox.

Real Mothers often have sticky floors,
Filthy ovens and happy kids.

Real Mothers know that dried play dough
Doesn't come out of carpets.

Real Mothers don't want to know what
The vacuum just sucked up.

Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?'
And get their answer when a little
Voice says, 'Because I love you best.'

Real Mothers know that a child's growth
Is not measured by height or years or grade...
It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother...


The Images of Mother

4 YEARS OF AGE - My Mommy can do anything!

8 YEARS OF AGE - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!

12 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.

14 YEARS OF AGE - Naturally, Mother doesn't know that, either.

16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She's hopelessly old-fashioned.

18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's way out of date!

25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, she might know a little bit about it!

35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.

45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?

65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides..
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she
Shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

Please send this to 5 Moms today.

If you don't, nothing bad will happen,
But if you do, something good
You'll boost a Mother's spirits.

Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about folks from Texas ... 

If someone in a Lowe's store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you may live in Texas ; 

If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live in Texas ; 

If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Texas ; 

If 'Vacation' means going anywhere south of Dallas for the weekend, you may live in Texas ; 

If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Texas ; 

If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you may live in Texas ; 
If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you may live in Texas ; 

If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you may live in Texas 

If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph --you're going 80 and everybody's passing you, you may live in Texas ; 

If you find 60 degrees 'a little chilly,' you may live in Texas ; 

If you actually understand these jokes, and share them with all your Texas friends, you definitely live in Texas ..
