Pick up the phone


My dear sister-in-law  Beverly sent this to me.  She is the Mom of Jacob who was in the terrible motorcyle accident in October, my nephew who was only 18 years of age.  He is in Heaven now.  She is really having a hard time.  So is her husband  David Jacobs' Daddy.  Please pray for them. Here is the prayer she sent me today:

Hello God,
                  I called tonight
                  To talk a little while
                  I need a friend who'll listen
                  To my anxiety and trial.
                  You see, I can't quite make it
                  Through a day just on my own...
                  I need your love to guide me,
                  So I'll never feel alone.
                  I want to ask you please to keep
                  My family safe and sound.
                  Come and fill their      lives with confidence
                  For whatever fate they're bound.
                  Give me faith, Dear God, to face
                  Each hour throughout the day,
                  And not to worry over things
                  I can't change in any way.
                  I thank you God for being home
                  And listening to my call,
                  For giving me such good advice
                  When I stumble and fall.
                  Your number, God, is the only one
                  That answers every time.
                  I never get a busy signal,
                  Never had to pay a dime.
                  So thank you, God, for listening
                  To my troubles and my sorrow.
                  Good night, God, I love You too,
                  And I'll call again tomorrow!
Do you see yourself in This One?


                 The man said,

                  , "God,speak    to         me"
                  and a meadowlark sang
                  But, the man did not hear.

                  So the man yelled, "God, speak to me"
                  and the thunder rolled across the sky
                  But, the man did not listen.
                  The man looked around and said,
                  "God let me see you."
                  And a star shined brightly.

                  But the man did not see.
                  And, the man shouted,
                  "God show me a miracle."
                  And, a life was born.

                  But, the man did not notice.
                  So, the man cried out in despair,
                  "Touch me God,
                  and let me know
                  you are here."
                  Whereupon, God reached down
                  and touched the man.
                  But, the man brushed
                  the butterfly away
                  and walked on.

                  I found this to be a great reminder
                  that God is always around us in the
                  little and simple things
                  that we take for granted...
                  even in our electronic age...
                  so I would like to add one more:

                  The man cried,
                  "God, I need your help!"
                  And an e-mail arrived reaching out
                  with good news and encouragement.

                  But, the man deleted it and continued crying...

                  Don't miss out on a blessing
                  because it isn't packaged
                  the way that you expect.


                  Expect the unexpected.....

                  Have A Happy Day!

             God is there for you and so am I
                  always even when everyone else
                  has betrayed you and left you. 

If you still have your family in your life, pick up the phone and give them a call.  Tell them you love them.  If they are close reach out and hug them.

Cats and A Dog

What's This?!?

Did You Know? I Didn't! Now I Do...So Can You!

Subject: DID YOU KNOW ?

Did You Know That?  Drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache pain almost immediately -- without the unpleasant side effects caused by traditional "pain relievers."     Did you know that Colgate toothpaste makes an excellent salve for burns.     Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler filled with mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoids peppermints. They'll clear up your stuffed nose.     Achy muscles from a bout of the flu? Mix 1 Tablespoon of horseradish in 1 cup of olive oil. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as a massage oil, for instant relief for aching muscles. (you might smell bad but no one wants to get close to you anyway because they don't want to catch what you got!)     Sore throat? Just mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take 1 tablespoon six times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria. (bet it don't taste so good, but if it gets rid of a sore throat count me in!)     Cure urinary tract infections with Alka-Seltzer . Just dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the  symptoms. Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost instantly -- even though the product was never been advertised for this use. (Note: Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold Medicine is not the same..and contains aspirin, which can cause stomach bleeding if you have ulcers.)   Honey remedy for skin blemishes... Cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, and speeds healing. Works overnight.   Listerine therapy for toenail fungus... Get rid of unsightly toenail fungus by soaking your toes in Listerine mouthwash. The powerful antiseptic leaves your toenails looking healthy again.   Easy eyeglass protection... To prevent the screws in eyeglasses from loosening, apply a small drop of Maybelline Crystal Clear nail polish to the threads of the screws before tightening them.      Coca-Cola cure for rust... Forget those expensive rust removers. Just saturate an abrasive sponge with Coca Cola and scrub the rust stain. The phosphoric acid in the coke is what gets the job done.   Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer... If menacing bees, wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets get in your home and you can't find the insecticide, try a spray of Formula 409. Insects drop to the ground instantly.       Smart splinter remover...just pour a drop of Elmer's Glue-All over the splinter, let dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter sticks to the dried glue. (Do NOT use super glue!!!!)     Hunt's tomato paste boil cure....cover the boil with Hunt's tomato paste as a compress. The acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and bring the boil to a head.     Balm for broken blisters...To disinfect a broken blister, dab on a few drops of Listerine ... a powerful antiseptic.     Heinz vinegar to heal bruises... Soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the healing process.     Kills fleas instantly. Dawn dish washing liquid does the trick. Add a few drops to your dog's bath and shampoo the animal thoroughly. Rinse well to avoid skin irritations. Goodbye fleas. Rainy day cure for dog odor ... Next time your dog comes in from the rain, simply wipe down the animal with Bounce or any dryer sheet, instantly making your dog smell springtime fresh.   Eliminate ear mites... All it takes is a few drops of Wesson corn oil in your cat's ear. Massage it in, then clean with a cotton ball. Repeat daily for 3 days. The oil soothes the cat's skin, smothers the mites, and accelerates healing.   Quaker Oats for fast pain relief.....It's not for breakfast anymore! Mix 2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the microwave for 1 minute, cool slightly, and apply the mixture to your hands for soothing relief from arthritis pain.   Thanks Moody Mike for the great advice! We might have helped someone save some money on their doctors bills! Barbara

Wordplay With Val


Do you have a pet(s)What is his/her nameHow did you come up with this name(s) Has your pet's name been changed through time How do you spell your pet's name and if it is an interesting spelling how did you come up with itTell me a bit about your petYou can tell me about childhood pets as well.  If you can send me a picture of your pet(s) I would LOVE it

Here is my version for you written with the help of my daughter (dog) Tiny:

Hi!  My name is Tiny Masters.  They named me Tiny because when they first got me I fit in Rick's pocket.  His T shirt pocket.  I don't fit there anymore!  But my name has stayed the same.  I have all kinds of nick names like "where's that dog?" and baby.  But mostly I go by my first name of Tiny.

They really think I am smart around here.  I can do many tricks such as shaking paws and other paw.  I climb pecan trees after squirrels and chase sticks to make them happy.

I sleep with my Mom and Dad in the master bedroom.  I let them sleep in my bed. 

I eat Kibbles and Bits and I love to eat the white and red ones first.  Sometimes they feel sorry for me and refill my bowl even when the rest of those nasty tasting ones are still there.  Other times I have to finish what is left first.

I love my Eric but they are always leaving him in Austin when we go to visit.  This makes me very angry and I pout all the way home to let them know that I am not happy about it.

And then to top it off, they try to make me believe that his voice in their phones is really him....although it does sound just like him.

I had Mom put in some of my pictures.  I hope you don't mind, but I am not wearing any clothes in any of theseshots.

I love my family and I wouldn't trade them for the world.

Thank you Tiny... Now let me tell you how I got Tiny

I was working at a drive through convience store when this lady came through and just handed her to me.  She said, "Here you go Miha"  I called Rick and he said "no way!" 

And then he saw her, and fell in love and she fell asleep in his pocket.  They have been close ever since.

Our whole town knows Tiny and we all love her so much

I have had many pets through out my life, but Tiny is my favorite ever!

Late Night Funnies

A Cheesy Romance? A YOUNG LADY was dating two men—a dairy farmer and a poet. She had trouble deciding if she should marry for butter or for verse.     Has Plenty of Pull

A SALESMAN drove his car into a ditch in a rural area. Luckily, a farmer came to his aid with his big strong horse, “Buddy.” He hitched Buddy up to the car and yelled, “Pull, Nellie, pull!” Buddy did not move. Then the farmer hollered, “Pull, Buster, pull!” Again, Buddy just stood there.

Next, the farmer ordered, “Pull, Coco, pull!” Still, Buddy didn’t budge. Finally, the farmer yelled, “Pull, Buddy, pull!” The big horse easily dragged the car out of the ditch.

The salesman thanked the farmer and then asked, “Why did you call your horse by the wrong name three times?”

The farmer grinned. “Buddy’s blind,” he answered. “If he thought he was the only one pulling, he wouldn’t even try.”


Danger Lurks Below

ENTERING a little country store, a stranger noticed a sign that read, “DANGER! BEWARE OF DOG!” Inside, he saw a harmless old hound asleep on the floor near the cash register. He asked the owner, “Is that the dog folks are supposed to beware of?”

“Yep,” the owner answered. “That’s him.”

The stranger couldn’t help being amused. “That certainly doesn’t look like a dangerous dog to me,” he said with a chuckle. “Why did you decide to post that sign?”

“Because,” the owner replied, “before I posted it, people kept tripping over him.”


Knock, Knock. Who's there? Lettuce. Lettuce who? Lettuce in! It's cold outside. Stating Their Case

TWO GUYS were bragging about their home states. The first was from Texas. “Our strawberries are so huge that it takes a team of mules to pull one off the vine,” he boasted.

The second guy retorted, “That’s nothing! In Iowa, where I’m from, we grow corn so tall that we have to climb the stalks at night just to let the moon pass by!”

Wood You Like Some Milk?

SOME small farmers never get board with showing off their dairy herd.

To see what we mean, click here. He Got the ItchHAVE YOU heard about the farmer who came up with an idea for a new crop? His plan is to cross poison ivy with a four-leaf clover. He figures he’ll have a rash of good luck.


It’s a Hairy Problem

THE FOREMAN in a widget factory noticed one of his workers walk out of the plant in the middle of his shift without punching the time clock. When the worker returned an hour later, the foreman asked him where he’d been.

“I went to get a haircut,” the fellow answered, gesturing to his head.

“You can’t get your hair cut on company time!” the foreman said.

“Why not?” the worker asked. “It grows on company time.”

Speak Up, I Can’t See You

You know you’re growing older when:

• Everything hurts, and what doesn’t hurt, doesn’t work.

• The gleam in your eye is from the sun hitting your bifocals.

• You feel like the morning after the night before, but you haven’t been anywhere.

• Your little black book contains only names ending in M.D.

• You know all the answers, but nobody asks you the questions.

• You sit in a rocking chair, but can’t get it going.

• Your knees buckle, but your belt won’t.

• Your back goes out more than you do.

• You sink your teeth into a steak, and they stay there.

• The only whistles you get are from your hearing aids.

Order the Moon Pie

DID YOU KNOW about a restaurant the astronauts discovered on the moon? The food was good, but the place didn’t have much atmosphere.

Pictures I have Taken Lately

I am putting in 4 pictures today.

The first one is the clown that my Daddy painted for me for my birthday.  I loved Erics chef clown so much that I asked him to paint me one.  He painted a Karaoke Clown for me...But of course. Anyone who really knows me well knows I love to sing and do every chance I get.

The second picture is the latest on I have taken of the room.  Rick has done even more since then!  We have the plywood now and that should be going up soon.

The third picture is   of Rick when I had to demand that he give the work a rest because he was sick and running a fever.  It was ice cold this day and I made him come in.

Picture four are the icicles on the wood the day he was going to work in the cold weather...

I am feeling better now.  I woke up today so sad.  I decided to call upon my prayer warriors Betty and Robin who both prayed for me and I am doing better now.

Thank you for all your prayers and for being there.


7 Reasons Not To Mess With Children.

7 Reasons not to mess with children.

A little girl: was talking to her teacher about whales.  
The  teacher: said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a  human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was  very small.

The  little girl: stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.  

Irritated,  the teacher: reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it  was physically impossible.

The  little girl: said, "When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah".  
The  teacher: asked, "What if Jonah went to hell?"  
The  little girl: replied, "Then you ask him".

A  Kindergarten teacher: was observing her classroom of children while  they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each  child's work.

As  she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked  what the drawing was.

The  girl: replied, "I'm drawing God."

The  teacher: paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks like."  

Without  missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl: replied,  "They will in a minute."


A  Sunday school teacher: was discussing the Ten Commandments with her  five and six year olds.

After  explaining the commandment to "honor" thy Father and thy Mother, she  asked, "Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our  brothers and sisters?"

Without  missing a beat one little boy: (the oldest of a family) answered,  "Thou shall not kill."


One  day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes  at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had  several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her  brunette head.
She  looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your  hairs white, Mom?"

Her  mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and  make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."  

The  little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said,  "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"  


The  children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to  persuade them each to  buy a copy of the group picture.  

"Just  think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up  and say, 'There's Jennifer, she's a lawyer,' or 'That's Michael,  He's a doctor.'

A  small voice at the back of the room rang out, "And there's the  teacher, she's dead."


A  teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying  to make the matter clearer, she said, "Now, class, if I stood on my  head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn  red in the face."

"Yes,"  the class said.

"Then  why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position  the blood doesn't run into my feet?"

A  little fellow shouted,
"Cause your feet ain't empty."  


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 it 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.

A  child had written a note, "Take all you want. God is watching the  apples
