We Saw Atley… In Person!

Last Weekend
We couldn’t wait any longer. So we took a trip to Lebanon, TN to meet our Great Grandson, Atley James Rogers who was born on July 17, 2012. Here’s some pictures…

Mandy and Alex are such good parents and taking very good care of Atley. It was a pleasure to be with them. Now we’re looking forward to some vacation days with them at the Munroe’s Cabin on Douglas Lake in a few weeks.

From a Friend

Have a Blessed Day, My Friend.
Look back and thank God.
Look forward and trust God.
Look around and serve God.
Look within and find God!"

God closes doors no man can open and . . .
God opens doors no man can close.

Without God our weeks would be: Sinday, Mournday, Tearsday, Wasteday, Thirstday, Fightday & Shatterday.

Joke of the Day

Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors and lawyers.

One evening, they chatted after having dinner together. They discussed the 95th birthday gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who moved to Florida .

The first said, "You know I had a big house built for Mama."

The second said, "And I had a large theatre built in the house."

The third said, "And I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her."

The fourth said, "You know how Mama loved reading the Bible and you know she can't read anymore because she can't see very well. I met this preacher who told me about a parrot who could recite the entire Bible. It took ten preachers almost 8 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $50,000 a year for five years to the church, but it was worth it Mama only has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot will recite it."

The other brothers were impressed. After the celebration Mama sent out her "Thank You" notes.

She wrote: Milton , the house you built is so huge that I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway."

"Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home; I have my groceries delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks."

"Michael, you gave me an expensive theatre with Dolby sound and it can hold 50 people, but all of my friends are dead, I've lost my hearing, and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the same."

"Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious Thank you so much."

Love, Mama
