A Rodent’s Wrath

The Groundhog Day Dump. That’s the moniker given to this Midwest blizzard by a local weather man. I like it. Humor lightens the frustrations of days like this. Unfortunately, it doesn’t lighten the load of snow in my driveway.

In the spirit of bringing some levity to this day, here are a sampling of some comical interactions with our kids.

~ One of our daughters went to the dress-up box and came back as a lady “astronut.”
~ After telling our daughter she could not play with the neighbor boy, she immediately went back outside and said to him, “My mom said I cannot be near you.”
~ Parent: “Did you brush your teeth?”
      Child: “Yes.”
      Parent: “All of them, on all sides?”
      Child: “Does that include the back side?”
~ Child: “The dentist said I am getting my ultimate teeth!” (translation: adult teeth)
~ Child:  “Dad, why do you pay cactuses?” (translation: taxes)
~ Chris is home from work, sick. Child: “Dad? Why are you home? Did you lose your job?”

One more funny. Several months ago we introduced many of you to The Doug & Jon Show. Here’s another of our favorites: Alan the Overly Angry Pirate. Enjoy, and don’t forget that in the midst of their silliness, Doug and Jon are all about the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Friend Joe

Actually, yes. We find this funny.

We heartily LOL’d the first time we saw it. Our children memorized it right then and now run about the house with happy voices saying things like “Don’t eat that it’s toxic!” and “Never run with scissors!”

We’ve LOL’d each and everytime we’ve watched it since.

It’s just for laughs…or is it?

The Doug & Jon Show is about laughs and much more. It has an effective purpose.

We are glad for people like Doug & Jon who use their gifts, unusually, for Kingdom work.

Go ahead. You can laugh, too. It’s pretty funny.
