Snow is a funny thing. It has pretty much been snowing non-stop for the last 48 hours and we have supposedly received 4 or 5 inches of snow. Well, because we’ve also received 20 to 30 mph winds, we have no snow on most of the flat areas (yards and streets) and snow drifts of 3 or 4 feet where it has stacked up. Should make for an interesting ride into work. Driving along, clear road, pleased as a peach and then “wham!” snow up to the headlights! I really gotta ask Santa for an SUV with heated leather seats and a good stereo system.
OH well, as long as we are dreaming, we might as well be laughing….
President Obama infuriated liberal Democrats Monday when he struck a deal with Republicans to keep tax cuts. He abandoned the left who can’t get him reelected to cut a deal with the right who’ll never vote for him. Now we know he removed the bust of Winston Churchill in the Oval Office to make room for one of George Armstrong Custer.
Is it possible that this means he’s making decisions based on what’s right?
London canceled FIFA’s hotel rooms for the Olympics Tuesday for changing their England votes to Russia for the World Cup host. It was a tough choice. FIFA members could vote against England and lose their rooms or they could vote against Russia and then spend the rest of their lives ordering the antidote rather than the appetizer.
THE CHRISTMAS PAGEANT
My husband and I had been happily married (most of the time) for five years
but hadn’t been blessed with a baby. I decided to do some serious praying and promised God that if he would give us a child, I would be a perfect mother, love it with all my heart and raise it with His word as my guide.
God answered my prayers and blessed us with a son.
The next year God blessed us with another son.
The following year, He blessed us with yet another son.
The year after that we were blessed with a daughter.
My husband thought we’d been blessed right into poverty.
We now had four children, and the oldest was only four years old.
I learned never to ask God for anything unless I meant it. As a minister once told me, “If you pray for rain, make sure you carry an umbrella.”
I began reading a few verses of the Bible to the children each day as they lay in their cribs..
I was off to a good start. God had entrusted me with four children and I didn’t want to disappoint Him.
I tried to be patient the day the children smashed two dozen eggs on the kitchen floor searching for baby chicks.
I tried to be understanding when they started a hotel for homeless frogs in the spare bedroom, although it took me nearly two hours to catch all twenty-three frogs.
When my daughter poured ketchup all over herself and rolled up in a blanket to see how it felt to be a hot dog, I tried to see the humor rather than the mess.
In spite of changing over twenty-five thousand diapers, never eating a hot meal and never sleeping for more than thirty minutes at a time, I still thank God daily for my children.
While I couldn’t keep my promise to be a perfect mother – I didn’t even come close – I did keep my promise to raise them in the Word of God. I knew I was missing the mark just a little when I told my daughter we were going to church to worship God, and she wanted to bring a bar of soap along to “wash up” Jesus, too.
Something was lost in the translation when I explained that God gave us everlasting life, and my son thought it was generous of God to give
us his “last wife.”
My proudest moment came during the children’s Christmas pageant. My daughter was playing Mary, two of my sons were shepherds and my youngest son was a wise man. This was their moment to shine.
My five-year-old shepherd had practiced his line, “We found the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes.” But he was nervous and said, “The baby was wrapped in wrinkled clothes.”
My four-year-old “Mary” said, “That’s not ‘wrinkled clothes,’ silly. That’s dirty, rotten clothes.”
A wrestling match broke out between Mary and the shepherd and was stopped by an angel, who bent her halo and lost her left wing.
I slouched a little lower in my seat when wearing a bathrobe Mary
dropped the doll representing Baby Jesus, and it bounced down the aisle crying, “Mama-mama.”
Mary grabbed the doll, wrapped it back up and held it tightly as the wise men arrived.
My other son stepped forward and a paper crown, knelt at the manger
and announced, “We are the three wise men, and we are bringing gifts
of gold, common sense and fur.”
The congregation dissolved into laughter, and the pageant got a standing ovation.
“I’ve never enjoyed a Christmas program as much as this one,” laughed the pastor, wiping tears from his eyes “For the rest of my life, I’ll never hear the
Christmas story without thinking of gold, common sense and fur.”
“My children are my pride and my joy and my greatest blessing,” I said as I dug through my purse for an aspirin.

There will be a new sight on
Stay up and watch….It’s hard to believe!
Santa gave up his sleigh full of loot,
Fired his reindeer and burned his red suit!
He got rid of the elves and called Master Charge,
Now he has an account, and boy, is it large!
He’ll be buying all gifts for the rest of his years.
Your stuff will say “K-Mart”, “J.C. Penny’s”, or “Sears”!
He’d gotten a little behind the whole Nation
With homemade toys and deer for transportation.
So forget feeding Rudolph, don’t lay out the barley,
‘Cause this year Santa rolls up on his Harley!
He’s a biker now, and it’s a whole new racket,
It says “Bad Ass Santa” on his black leather jacket!
Mrs. Claus is now his “Old Lady”!
They’ve got spikes on their helmets,
And they look kinda shady!
He’s got a “chopper” with a “sissy bar”,
And his “Old Lady” now has a “side car”!
He’s really “hip” as he cruises around,
With his “boom box” blastin’, Santa really gets down!
He’s popping “wheelies”, and stopping on dimes,
Glad that he’s finally caught up with the times.
So sit by your window, it’s something you’ll like,
This modern day Santa on a shiny chrome bike!
And you’ll hear him exclaim as he rides out of sight,
“MERRY CHRISTMAS, MAN! THIS SHIT’S ALRIGHT!!!!”

Here’s a consolation prize for losing the election: Christine O’Donnell’s “I’m not a witch” has been chosen by the Yale Book of Quotations as the quote of the year. It tied for first with BP CEO Tony Hayward, who famously proclaimed, “I’d like my life back.” Also in the top 10 were “If you touch my junk, I’m gonna have you arrested,” by airline passenger John Tyner; “Don’t retreat. Instead—reload!” by Sarah Palin; and “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it,” by Nancy Pelosi.

This is an actual suit filed in 1995…
L. Grier sued the government of the United States for fraud, breach of contract, and discrimination.
The basis for his suit? Grier alleged that former President Ronald Reagan did not respond when he invented the multiplication tables and sent them to the White House, but instead stole his invention and implemented it in the public schools.
Grier asked for $900 billion in damages.
THE VERDICT: Case dismissed
