a small interview with her husband yesterday. John is my biggest
inspiration. Those who know them, may want to know how they are

Joke - The Blonde in the Blizzard...

The Blonde in the Blizzard

It was snowing heavily and blowing to the point that visibility was almost zero
when the little blonde got off work. She made her way to her car and wondered
how she was going to make it home. She sat in her car while it warmed up
and thought about her situation.

The blonde finally remembered her daddy's advice that if she got caught in a
blizzard she should wait for a snow plow to come by and follow it. That way she
would not get stuck in a snow drift. This made her feel much better and sure
enough in a little while a snow plow came by and she started to follow it.

She was feeling very proud of herself and a little smug as she and the plow
continued on in the blizzard conditions.

After quite some time had passed, the blonde was somewhat surprised when the
snow plow stopped and the driver got out and came back to her car and signaled
for her to roll down her window.

The driver wanted to know if she was all right as she had been following him
for quite a long time.

The blonde told him she was fine and told him of her daddy's advice to follow a
snow plow when caught in a blizzard.

The driver replied, "Well that's just fine honey, and you can keep it up if you
want. I'm done here with the K-Mart parking lot and I gotta go cross the way
to Sam's Club next... "

Cartoons and an update...

Good morning, friends! Have you checked out my sidebar in awhile?
Give it a look-see. I've put some special items in there that you
may want to take advantage of or have fun with.

How is everyone doing? I found out three days ago that my
daughter is giving me a third grandson =). The pregnancy is going
well. She is having terrible migraines on and off, though, as she has
inherited Chiari Malformation from her Mama. She isn't allowed to
have an epidural with this delivery because of the Chiari, too. She
will be a trooper, I am sure. Please say a prayer for her. Matt sounds
well in his letters. He graduates from basic training on February 12.
Then he is off to intelligence school in California. Thanks for all of
your prayers and concerns for my kids. Now on to today's cartoons!

These can be found at Pay the website a visit.
It's fun! Hoping everyone is warm and well... Val =)

Joke - The Monastery...

The Monastery

A man is driving down the road and breaks down near a monastery. He gets out of
his car, approaches the monastery door and knocks. A couple of monks open the
door and he explains to them, "My car broke down. Do you think I could stay the

The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, and even fix his car.

As the man tries to fall asleep in the monastery that evening, he hears a strange
sound. The next morning, he asks the monks what the sound was, but they say,
"We can't tell you. You're not a monk."

The man is disappointed but thanks them anyway and goes about his merry way.

Some years later, the same man breaks down in front of the same monastery. The
monks again accept him, feed him, and fix his car once more. That night, he hears
the same strange noise that he had heard years earlier.

The next morning, he asks what it is, but the monks reply, "We can't tell you.
You're not a monk."

The man says, "All right, all right. I'm dying to know. If the only way I can find
out the mystery of the origin of the sound is to become a monk, how do I become
a monk?"

The monks answer, "You must travel the earth and tell us how many blades of grass
there are and the exact number of sand pebbles. When you find these numbers,
you will become a monk."

The man sets about his task. Some forty-five years later, he returns and knocks on
the door of the monastery. He says, "I have traveled the earth and have found what
you have asked for. There are 145,236,284,232 blades of grass and
231,281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles on the earth."

The monks reply, "Congratulations. You are now a monk. We shall now show you the
way to the sound."

The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the head monk says, "The sound is
right behind that door."

The man reaches for the knob, but the door is locked. He says, "Real funny. May I
have the key?"

The monks give him the key, and he opens the door. Behind the wooden door is
another door made of stone.

The man demands the key to the stone door. The monks give him the key, and he
opens it, only to find a door made of ruby.

He demands another key from the monks, who provide it. Behind that door is another
door, this one made of sapphire.

So it went until the man had gone through doors of emerald, silver, topaz and

Finally, the monks say, "This is the last key to the last door."

The man is relieved to no end. He unlocks the door, turns the knob, and behind that
door he is amazed to find the source of that strange sound!

... But I can't tell you what it is because you're not a monk.

Joke - Darn Cat...

Darn Cat

A couple was going out for the evening. They'd gotten all dolled up, called
for a taxi, and put the cat outside.

The taxi arrives, and as the couple opened their front door, the cat shoots
back in. They don't want the cat shut in the house, so the wife goes out to
the taxi while the husband goes upstairs to chase the cat back out.

The wife, not wanting it known that the house will be empty, explains to the
taxi driver, "He's just going upstairs to say goodbye to my mother."

A few minutes later, the husband gets into the cab, "Sorry I took so long,"
he says. "Stupid old thing was hiding under the bed and I had to poke her
with a coat hanger to get her to come out!"

A lady was walking to work one morning. She spied a new parrot on its
perch in the window of the local pet store that she passes each morning.

The parrot said to her, "Pssst, hey lady, you're ugly."

Well, as you can imagine, the lady is furious! She grumbled and stomped her
way to work.

On the way home she saw the same parrot, and it said to her, "Hey lady, you
are really ugly."

She was incredibly ticked now.

The next day the same parrot again said to her, "WOW lady, you are still really

The lady was so ticked that she went into the store and said that she would sue
the store and kill the bird if the manager didn't take care of this problem.

The store manager apologized profusely and promised he would make sure the
parrot wouldn't say it again.

When the lady walked past the store that day after work, the parrot called to
her, "Hey lady... "

She stopped and said, "Yes?"

The bird paused, then said, "You know."

Joke - Magic Trick...

Magic Trick

A cruise ship hired a magician to entertain the passengers. Since the passengers
changed every four or five days, the magician was able to perform the same tricks
over and over.

Unfortunately, the Captain of the ship had a parrot who sat around and watched
the magician perform his tricks. Eventually, the parrot learned howthe tricks were
done and would interrupt the act.

"It's in his sleeve," the parrot would say. "He switched balls.", "It's in his
pocket.", etc., etc.

Naturally, the magician was quite disturbed by the parrot but could do nothing
about it, since it belonged to the Captain.

Unfortunately, the cruise ship had the misfortune of hitting an iceberg and sank
to the bottom of the sea in a matter of minutes. As fate would have it, the
magician and the parrot managed to grab hold of the same floating piece
of furniture.

For three days, neither said anything. The magician stared at the parrot and the
parrot stared back. Finally, on the fourth day, the parrot cracked and said:

"OK, I give up, where on Earth did you put the ship?"

A Funny - God and St. Francis Discussing Lawns...

God and St. Francis Discussing Lawns

GOD: St. Francis, you know all about gardens and nature. What in the world is going
on down there in the USA? What happened to the dandelions, violets, thistle and
stuff I started eons ago? I had a perfect, no-maintenance garden plan. Those
plants grow in any type of soil, withstand drought and multiply with abandon.
The nectar from the long lasting blossoms attracts butterflies, honeybees and
flocks of songbirds.

I expected to see a vast garden of colors by now. But all I see are these green

ST. FRANCIS: It's the tribes that settled there, Lord. The Suburbanites. They
started calling your flowers weeds and went to great lengths to kill them and
replace them with grass.

GOD: Grass? But it's so boring. It's not colorful. It doesn't attract butterflies,
birds and bees, only grubs and sod worms. It's temperamental with
temperatures. Do these Suburbanites really want all that grass
growing there?

ST. FRANCIS: Apparently so, Lord. They go to great pains to grow it and keep it
green. They begin each spring by fertilizing grass and poisoning any
other plant that crops up in the lawn.

GOD: The spring rains and warm weather probably make grass grow really fast.
That must make the Suburbanites happy.

ST. FRANCIS: Apparently not, Lord. As soon as it grows a little, they cut it,
sometimes twice a week.

GOD: They cut it? Do they then bale it like hay?

ST. FRANCIS: Not exactly Lord. Most of them rake it up and put it in bags.

GOD: They bag it? Why? Is it a cash crop? Do they sell it?

ST. FRANCIS: No, sir - just the opposite. They pay to throw it away.

GOD: Now, let me get this straight. They fertilize grass so it will grow.
And when it does grow, they cut it off and pay to throw it away?

ST. FRANCIS: Yes, sir.

GOD: These Suburbanites must be relieved in the summer when we cut back on the
rain and turn up the heat. That surely slows the growth and saves them a lot
of work.

ST. FRANCIS: You aren't going to believe this, Lord. When the grass stops growing
so fast, they drag out hoses and pay more money to water it so they can
continue to mow it and pay to get rid of it.

GOD: What nonsense. At least they kept some of the trees. That was a sheer stoke
of genius, if I do say so myself. The trees grow leaves in the spring to provide
beauty and shade in the summer. In the autumn they fall to the ground and form
a natural blanket to keep moisture in the soil and protect the trees and bushes.
Plus, as they rot, the leaves form compost to enhance the soil. It's a natural
circle of life.

ST. FRANCIS: You'd better sit down, Lord. The Suburbanites have drawn a new
circle. As soon as the leaves fall, they rake them into great piles and pay to
have them hauled away.

GOD: No. What do they do to protect the shrub and tree roots in the winter and
to keep the soil moist and loose?

ST. FRANCIS: After throwing away the leaves, they go out and buy something which
they call mulch. They haul it home and spread it around in place of the leaves.

GOD: And where do they get this mulch?

ST. FRANCIS: They cut down trees and grind them up to make the mulch.

GOD: Enough! I don't want to think about this anymore. St. Catherine, you're in
charge of the arts. What movie have you scheduled for us tonight?

ST. CATHERINE: Dumb and Dumber, Lord. It's a real stupid movie about...

GOD: Never mind, I think I just heard the whole story from St. Francis.

P. S. Happy Birthday, D.!!

Reverendfun Cartoons, etc....

Good morning everyone! I hope you all are enjoying the Reverendfun
Cartoons! I have another batch of them this morning. Remember, if
you visit you can view the archives and sign up to
receive the cartoon by email.

My daughter called from Florida this morning. They are predicting snow
where she lives for the first time in 30+ years! No accumulation is
predicted, though. With wind chill, it is in the teens there, too. Wow!
My son called, too, and he is very well, for those of you who are
praying for him. He is at basic training in the Air Force in Texas. I am
so proud of you, Matt!!

Wherever you are, whomever you are, I hope you are warm and safe.
Sending joy to all... Val =)

P. S. Happy Birthday, Jacob!
