Amazing Grace

A Beautiful Hymn
We were in a recent memorial service for a friend and heard this beautiful hymn again. There’s many opportunities to hear this sung by a variety of people if you search on YouTube. I found the following sung in Cherokee which you might enjoy:

And I would encourage you to click on the following link for Amazing Grace sung by four men and it is done beautifully.


Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Life at best, is very brief.
Like the falling of a leaf.
I never thought my life would fly by so fast,
did you?

Joke of the Day

Back by popular demand… Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question if they are not prepared for the answer. In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmother, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, Mrs. Jones, do you know me?

She responded, “Why, yes I do know you, Mr. Williams. I’ve known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you’ve been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you’re a big shot when you haven’t the brains to realize you’ll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes I know you.”

The Lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, “Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?”

She again replied, “Why yes, I do. I’ve known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He’s lazy, bigoted, and has a drinking problem. He can’t build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.”

The attorney nearly dies.

The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice said, “If either of you idiots ask her is she knows me, I’ll send you both to the electric chair."
