Traveling Today

Today we will be going to a funeral in north Georgia. We drove to Knoxville last evening, and spent the night with Dad and Mary. We'll leave early this morning to begin our drive to Georgia for Taylor Wood's funeral. Taylor was 95 and a good friend to Dad all through the years. Taylor was a man of God, who was kind and gentle. (Obituary for Taylor H. Wood)

Understanding Our World
If you watch the following video from YouTube, you will have a better understanding of the world we live in. It illustrates our world as consisting of 100 people. 100 is a number we can all relate to. And looking at the world this way gives some true insight. Enjoy...

Talk softly, be kind, and help someone in need.

Joke of the Day
A big-city lawyer was representing the railroad in a lawsuit filed by an old rancher. The rancher's prize bull was missing from the section through which the railroad passed. The rancher claimed that the bull must have been hit by the train, and wanted to be paid the fair value of the bull.

The case was scheduled to be tried before the justice of the peace in the back room of the general store.

As soon as the rancher showed up, the attorney for the railroad pulled him aside and tried to get him to settle out of court. The lawyer did his best selling job, and finally the rancher agreed to take half of what he was asking.

After the rancher had signed the release and took the check, the young lawyer couldn't resist gloating a little over his success, telling the rancher, "You know, I hate to tell you this, old man, but I put one over on you in there. I couldn't have won the case. The engineer was asleep and the fireman was in the caboose when the train went through your ranch that morning. I didn't have one witness to put on the stand. I bluffed you!"

The old rancher replied, "Well, I'll tell you, young feller, I was a little worried about winning that case myself, because that darned bull came home this morning."
