Well, our daughter came through her surgery just swell and is gallbladder-free, and the doctors are certain her stomach pains are also a thing of the past. She was home recuperating three hours after her first incision, and her being so young and pliant, she'll be back on her feet in just a couple of days and back in the pool for her swim team before Labor Day. Prayer works! Thank you so much!!

THE WIT and WISDOM OF JOHNNY CARSON
"I was so naive as a kid I used to sneak out behind the barn and do nothing."
"Married men live longer than single men. But married men are a lot more willing to die."
"New York is an exciting town where something is happening all the time, most of it unsolved."
On Los Angeles: "We have two kinds of air: regular and chunky."
"I know a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex, and rich food. He was healthy right up to the day he killed himself."
"Welcome to the Academy Awards, a glittering two hours of entertainment spread out over four hours."
"People will pay more to be entertained than educated."
