Two Strokes

This Christmas season, why not give the Earth a gift?

You can plant a tree for as little as $5.00.



A golfer set up his ball on the first tee and took a mighty swing. To his chagrin, he saw that his drive landed in the midst of a clump of trees.

After he located his ball, he spied a small opening between two of the trees with a clear view of the green. Confident he could hit his ball squarely and accurately, he took out his 3-wood and took another mighty swing.

The ball, sadly, hit the tree squarely and came screaming back at the golfer, striking him right on the forehead and killing him instantly.

As the man approached the Gates of Heaven, 3-wood still in hand, Saint Peter says, "You must be a good golfer."

Proudly, the man exclaims, "Got here in two, didn't I?!"
