Perilous Paul's Persnickety Puns..........................
His wife was in labor with their first child. Things were going pretty well when suddenly, she began to shout, "Shouldn't! Wouldn't! Couldn't! CAN'T!" Panicked, the husband phoned their doctor and told him what was happening. "Doctor, this is Mr. Smith, and my wife is acting very strangely! She just started calling out 'Shouldn't! Wouldn't! Couldn't! CAN'T!', over and over again, with an occasional Isn't and Won't! thrown in. What's going on!? Should I be worried?  What should I do? Just what is wrong with my wife!" he cried. "Not to worry." said the doctor. "Get her to the hospital, I'll meet you here." "But what is it!!?" queried the husband. "Nothing out of the ordinary," assured the doctor. "It's perfectly and just part of her pregnancy. She's just having contractions, that's all!"

Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

Gentleman Jim's Generic Jottings..................

Lucky Larry's Liturgical Leavings......................
We're called to be witnesses, not lawyers or Judges.
God Himself doesn't propose to judge a man until he is dead.. So why should you?
God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called.
You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage him.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass.  It's about learning to dance in the rain.
That's it for this week from your embedded "community organizer" lurking on the outskirts of Absurdia, the principle city of The Peoples Democratic Republic of Absurdistan where the esteemed Mayor, Sheila Dixon has 7 more indictments lodged against her this week.   All you need to know about this example of the "Culture of Corruption" is that dozens of gift cards, donated by companies like Best Buy and Old Navy were used by her for herself and her children thus denying their use "for the children" living in dire poverty.

But, on the other hand...................
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take - but by the moments that take our breath away."
