Mother's Day

Yesterday
It was Mother's Day. My wife, Beverly, is a wonderful Mother and Grandmother. I don't deserve her as my wife, but I'm very thankful for her.

We had a good and restful day. Beverly enjoyed the flowers, and a meal out, and the phone calls. Here's a picture of Beverly with the beautiful petunias that Sylvia, Mandy and Alex sent her for Mother's Day. Kevin & Lesley treated us all for nice Mexican meal last night at La Carreta. We had a great time!


Ten Commandments

My next door neighbor sent this to me a few days ago, and I wanted to share with my other readers. It's about the 10 commandments...


"Some people in Tennessee have trouble with all those "shall's" and "shall not's" in the Ten Commandments. Folks just aren't used to talking in those terms. So, some folks in middle Tennessee got together and translated the "King James" into "East Tennessee" language..... no joke, read on... The Hillbilly's Ten Commandments
  1. Just one God
  2. Put nothin' before God
  3. Watch yer mouth
  4. Git yourself to Sunday meetin'
  5. Honor yer Ma & Pa
  6. No killin'
  7. No foolin' around with another fellow's gal
  8. Don't take what ain't yers
  9. No tellin' tales or gossipin'
  10. Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff
Now that's kinda plain an' simple, don't ya think? Y'all have a nice day."

Live simply.
Love generously.
Care deeply.
Speak kindly.

Leave the rest to God!

Joke of the Day
A guy stood over his tee shot for what seemed an eternity, looking up, looking down, measuring the distance, figuring the wind direction and speed... driving his partner nuts.

Finally his exasperated partner says, "What is taking so long? Hit the stupid ball!"

The guy answers, "My wife is up there watching me from the clubhouse. I want to make this a perfect shot."

His partner replied, "Give me a break! You don't stand a chance of hitting her from here."

I hope Mother's Day was a good day. I like the Hillbilly 10 commandments. Kind of makes things simple don't it?
