Today is my daughter's fifteenth birthday. She's celebrating by participating in a swim meet against a rival high school. You think maybe if we let all the other swimmers know it's her birthday, they'll swim just a wee bit slower in her heats?


Amanda buys a lunch at the cafeteria every day, just like her brother did when he was in school. Mom and I usually take our lunch to work. If you're having any problem with other people nipping off with your sandwich while it's stashed in the company fridge or your child/grandchild's lunchbox/locker ... maybe you should invest in some of these.


My son's least favorite vegetable is turnips, but we were having some one night and I put *one* on his dinner plate and told him to eat everything he was served.

He obediently cleaned his plate ... except for the turnip.

"See," I pointed out to him, "if you had eaten it earlier, it wouldn't have been the last taste left in your mouth at the end of the meal."

He sighed and thoughtfully said, "I guess I was just trying to delay the inedible."

WISDOM for YOUR WEEK: "Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred." (Proverbs 15:17)
