Tears on His 50th Wedding Anniversary
A man and woman were recently celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.
While cutting the cake, the wife was moved after seeing her husband’s eyes fill with tears.
The wife took his arm, and looked at him affectionately.
“I never knew you were so sentimental.” she whispered.
“No . . . No . . .” he said, choking back his tears, “That’s not it at all. Remember when your father found us in the barn and told me to either marry you or spend the next 50 years in jail?”
“Yes,” the wife replied. “I remember it like yesterday.”
“Well,” said the husband, “Today I would have be a free man.”

Last Sunday, the sermon was the one about the ten bridesmaids. The five
good bridesmaids remembered to take plenty of oil for their lamps; five
bad bridesmaids did not.
The priest at our church is always very fiery and his sermons always
end on a high note.
Last Sunday the priest ended with…
“Where would you rather be? In the light with the five good bridesmaids
or in the dark with the five bad bridesmaids???”
I guess it was somewhat comforting to know I wasn’t the only one who
gave the wrong answer…

A Young Superstitious Carolina Recruit
Over fifty years ago, a young superstitious Carolina ridge runner from a hollow back in the mountains, was drafted by the Army for the Korean conflict. He was shipped off to a camp in Georgia for basic training. His granny told him to watch out for any abnormalities and to remember, things come in threes. On his first day the Army issued him a comb. and that afternoon the Army barber sheared off all his hair. On his second day, the Army issued him a toothbrush and that afternoon the Army dentist yanked seven of his teeth. On the third day, the Army issued him a jock strap and the MP’s have been looking for him in the Carolina high country boonies ever since.
As I was driving home from work one day, I stopped to watch a local
Little League baseball game that was being played in a park near my
home. As I sat down behind the bench on the first-base line, I asked one
of the boys what the score was. “We’re behind 14 to nothing,” he answered
with a smile. “Really,” I said. “I have to say you don’t look very
discouraged.” “Discouraged?” the boy asked with a puzzled look on his
face. “Why should we be discouraged? We haven’t been up to bat yet.”

The New Patio
My husband, Ray, was attempting to build a patio for the
first time. He bought 100 cement blocks. Laying them out
in a pattern, he discovered the chosen area was too small.
He stacked the blocks against the house and cleared more
space. The next day Ray put the cement blocks back down,
only to find that the ground was too hard to keep the
He ordered a truckload of sand to be delivered the following
morning. Again he stacked the 100 blocks against the house.
Observing all this, our ‘nosey’ next-door neighbor asked,

The game of golf is 90% mental and 10% mental.
Error must go somewhere. If your driver is hot, your putter
is ice cold; if you can hit your irons, you will top your
woods; if you are keeping your right elbow tucked in, your
head will come up.
The secret of golf is, use your real swing to take the big
divot, use your practice swing to make the shot, and always
hit the do-over first.

Since bad shots come in groups of three, a fourth bad shot

Whatever you think you’re doing wrong is the one thing

No matter how badly you are playing, it is always possible
to play worse.
Never try to keep more than 300 separate thoughts in your
mind during your swing.
When your shot has to carry over a water hazard, you can
either hit one more club or two more balls.
If you’re afraid a full shot might reach the green while the
foursome ahead of you is still putting out, you have two
options: you can immediately shank a lay-up, or you can wait
until the green is clear and top a ball halfway there.
The less skilled the player, the more likely he is to share
his ideas about the golf swing.
The less intelligent the player, the more certain he is to
offer insights into the mental side of the game.
It if ain’t broke, try changing your grip.
The inevitable result of any golf lesson is the instant
elimination of the one critical unconscious motion that
allowed you to compensate for all your errors.

The shortest distance between any two points on a golf

99.99% of all matter is empty space, but that last .01% will

If your ball disappears in the fairway of a blind hole, it’s
probably because it rolled into an anti-divot and vaporized.
Every time a golfer makes a birdie, he must subsequently
make two triple bogeys to restore the fundamental
equilibrium of the universe.
It’s always winter somewhere.
If you want to hit a 7-iron as far as Tiger Woods does,
simply try to lay up just short of a water hazard.
To calculate the speed of a player’s downswing, multiply the
speed of his backswing by his handicap. Example: backswing
