I've been super-busy today with family responsibilities, cooking chores to finish before the predicted storms hit, and a horrible backlog of e-mails to answer. So for a day or so, I'll be pulling out some old posts from my other blog. These are such fun that I'd hate to have you miss them.
years ago, Floyd and I spend six months traveling around western
Tennessee to visit each Lions Club in the district. As we rode along
the back roads, away from the din of traffic on I-40, we began to notice
that church marquees and bumper stickers on pickup trucks contained a
wealth of down-home wisdom. Here are some of our favorites.
- “Never try to teach a frog to sing. You’ll annoy the frog, wear yourself out, and the music will be awful.”
- “Don’t drive faster than your angel can fly.”
- “Amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.”
- “Lord, help me be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.”
- “All experts are twits.”
- “When you’ve dug yourself into a hole, quit digging.”
- Sign on back of an ordinary-looking van: “This is a church vehicle. Please report any suspicious behavior.”
- “Teamwork means there’s someone else to blame.”
- Sign on a casket company truck: “Please drive safely. Heaven can wait.”
- “Do not meddle in the affairs of Dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.”
- “Some people stop looking for work as soon as they find a job.”
- “You gain experience just AFTER you discover you need it.
- Sign on church: “Under same management for 2000 years.”
