Storm Monday

Good morning everyone. This is going to be heck of a week. Four of the five days will have Emily & Cole with us and Tuesday night they will stay over. Mary Lou & I planning a wonderful week for these great kids. One of the days they will be making meatballs and then they will bring a some home for their parents and them. I hope the weather will help us have a great week together.



A first grade teacher handed out a coloring page to her students - on it was a picture of a frog holding an umbrella.
When the class handed them in, one little boy had colored the frog bright purple. The teacher scolded him, asking, “How often have you seen a purple frog?”
 The little boy answered, “The same number of times I've seen a frog holding an umbrella.”
“Johnny, where’s your homework?” Miss Martin said sternly to the little boy while holding out her hand.
“My dog ate it,” was his solemn response.
“Johnny, I’ve been a teacher for eighteen years. Do you really expect me to believe that?”
“It’s true, Miss Martin, I swear it is,” insisted Johnny. “I had to smear it with honey, but I finally got him to eat it.”

A teacher of the earth science class was lecturing on map reading.
After explaining about latitude, longitude, degrees and minutes the teacher asked, “Suppose I asked you to meet me for lunch at 23 degrees, 4 minutes north latitude and 45 degrees, 15 minutes east longitude…?”
After a confused silence, a voice volunteered, “I guess you’d be eating alone.”


 The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray, “Take only one. God is watching.” Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. One child whispered to another, “Take all you want. God is watching the apples.”

Well, I'm finally finished with my post this morning and beginning to get darker. I think the storm is near us so I'd better turn off my machine because usaully the storm has vicious lightning and of course the power usually goes off so I'll say godd bye for now. Have a great day friends.
                                                                             SEE YA.
