Mr. & Mrs. Class A Act

Mr. & Mrs. Class. They Show Up Again…

There’s a group of ladies in the Dallas area who make and stuff neck pillows for soldiers coming through Dallas Fort Worth airport. They go to the airport and meet the incoming planes every week and greet the soldiers coming back for a few weeks R&R, give them a pillow, tell them they pray for them, and thank them for their service. The lady who took the pictures said everyone was so surprised to see George and Laura Bush recently just standing quietly in the waiting area with others who come to meet the troop planes. She said it was amazing to watch the faces of the soldiers light up in recognition when they spotted them and that many came over to speak and shake hands.

















PLEASE PASS THIS ON………..

And, tell me once again the name of the man in the White House who bad-mouths this man and his wife.

I believe it might be Boraxo or something like that

problems in heaven

On their way to get married, a young Catholic couple is involved in a fatal car accident. The couple find themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven. While waiting, they begin to wonder: Could they possibly get married in Heaven? When St. Peter shows up, they asked him. St. Peter says, “I don’t know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out,” and he leaves.
They couple sat and waited for an answer…for a couple of months. While they waited, they discussed that IF they were allowed to get married in Heaven, SHOULD they get married, what with the eternal aspect of it all. “What if it doesn’t work?” they wondered, “Are we stuck together FOREVER?”

After yet another month, St. Peter finally returns, looking somewhat bedraggled. Yes,” he informs the couple, “you CAN get married in Heaven.” “Great!” said the couple, “But we were just wondering, what if things don’t work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?”

St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slams his clipboard onto the ground. “What’s wrong?” asked the frightened couple. “OH, COME ON!!” St. Peter shouts, “It took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have ANY idea how long it’ll take me to find a lawyer?”

The River

THIS IS FOR ALL THE WOMEN!

One day, three men were hiking and unexpectedly came upon a large raging, violent river. They needed to get to the other side, but had no idea of how to do so. The first man prayed to God, saying, “Please God, give me the strength
to cross this river.”

Poof! God gave him big arms and strong legs, and he was able to swim across the river in about two hours, after almost drowning a couple of times.

Seeing this, the second man prayed to God, saying, “Please God, give me the strength…and the tools to cross this river.”

Poof! God gave him a rowboat and he was able to row across the river in about an hour, after almost capsizing the boat a couple of times.

The third man had seen how this worked out for the other two, so he also prayed to God saying, “Please God, give me the strength and the tools…and the intelligence…to cross this river.”

And poof! God turned him into a woman. She looked at the map, hiked upstream a couple of hundred yards, then walked across the bridge.

SEND THIS TO A SMART WOMAN WHO NEEDS A LAUGH AND TO THE GUYS YOU THINK CAN HANDLE IT!

HOW TO BATHE A CAT

Note: Jeffery LaCroix is a veterinarian with an office in Wilmington.
He writes a column for the Morning Star called “From Paws to Tails.”)

Here is his response to a letter regarding bathing a cat:

Dear Dr. LaCroix: I’ve heard that cats never have to be bathed, and that
they have some sort of special enzyme in their saliva that keeps them
clean. This doesn’t sound believable to me because there are definite
“kitty” odors on my couch and dirty cat paw prints on our white hearth.
Is this true about the saliva? If we do decide to give “Nice Kitty” a bath,
how do we do that? – NSP, Wilmington

Dear NSP: Fortunately for you, several years ago a client gave me a
written set of instructions about cat bathing, which I am privileged to
share with you:

Cat Bathing As A Martial Art

A. Know that although the cat has the advantage of quickness and lack of
concern for human life, you have the advantage of strength. Capitalize
on that advantage by selecting the battlefield. Don’t try to bathe him in
an open area where he can force you to chase him. Pick a very small
bathroom.

If your bathroom is more than four feet square, I recommend that you get
in the tub with the cat and close the sliding glass doors as if you were
about to take a shower. (A simple shower curtain will not do. A berserk
cat can shred a three-ply rubber shower curtain quicker than a politician
can shift positions.)

B. Know that a cat has claws and will not hesitate to remove all the
skin from your body. Your advantage here is that you are smart and know how
to dress to protect yourself. I recommend canvas overalls tucked into
high-top construction boots, a pair of steel-mesh gloves, an army helmet, a
hockey face-mask, and a long-sleeved flak jacket.

C. Use the element of surprise. Pick up your cat nonchalantly, as if to
simply carry him to his supper dish. (Cats will not usually notice your
strange attire. They have little or no interest in fashion as a rule.)

D. Once you are inside the bathroom, speed is essential to survival. In
a single liquid motion, shut the bathroom door, step into the tub
enclosure, slide the glass door shut, dip the cat in the water and squirt
him with shampoo. You have begun one of the wildest 45 seconds of your life.

E. Cats have no handles. Add the fact that he now has soapy fur, and the
problem is radically compounded. Do not expect to hold on to him for
more than two or three seconds at a time. When you have him, however, you
must remember to give him another squirt of shampoo and rub like crazy.
He’ll
then spring free and fall back into the water, thereby rinsing himself
off. (The national record for cats is three latherings, so don’t expect too
much.)

F. Next, the cat must be dried. Novice cat bathers always assume this
part will be the most difficult, for humans generally are worn out at this
point and the cat is just getting really determined.

In fact, the drying is simple compared with what you have just been
through. That’s because by now the cat is semi-permanently affixed to
your right leg. You simply pop the drain plug with your foot, reach for your
towel and wait.
(Occasionally, however, the cat will end up clinging to the top of
your army helmet. If this happens, the best thing you can do is to shake him
loose and to encourage him toward your leg.) After all the water is
drained from the tub, it is a simple matter to just reach down and dry
the cat.

In a few days the cat will relax enough to be removed from your leg. He
will usually have nothing to say for about three weeks and will spend a
lot of time sitting with his back to you.

He might even become psychoceramic and develop the fixed stare of a
plaster figurine. You will be tempted to assume he is angry. This isn’t
usually
the case.

As a rule he is simply plotting ways to get through your defenses and
injure you for life the next time you decide to give him a bath.

But at least now he smells a lot better.

Flower?

Always the dutiful husband!!!!!!!!!  Most men wouldn’t be this  caring.

While attending a marriage seminar on communication,  a husband and
wife listened to the instructor declare, “It is essential that husbands
and wives know the things that are important to each other.”   He
addressed the husband:  “Can you describe your wife’s favorite flower?”
He leaned over, touched his wife’s arm gently  and whispered,
“Pillsbury All-Purpose, isn’t it?”

A husband has to know these things.

An offer he couldn’t refuse

During the wedding rehearsal, the groom approached the pastor with an
unusual offer.

“Look, I’ll give you $100 if you’ll change the wedding vows. When you
get to me and the part where I’m to promise to ‘love, honor and obey’
and ‘forsaking all others, be faithful to her forever,’ I’d appreciate
it if you’d just leave that part out.” He passed the minister a $100
bill and walked away satisfied.

It is now the day of the wedding, and the bride and groom have moved to
that part of the ceremony where the vows are exchanged. When it comes
time for the groom’s vows, the pastor looks the young man in the eye and
says:

“Will you promise to prostrate yourself before her, obey her every
command and wish, serve her breakfast in bed every morning of your life
and swear eternally before God and your lovely wife that you will not
ever even look at another woman, as long as you both shall live?”

The groom gulped and looked around, and said in a tiny voice, “I do.”

The groom then leaned toward the pastor and hissed, “I thought we had a
deal.”

The pastor pressed the $100 bill into the groom’s hand and whispered
back, “She made me a much better offer.”

Bless This Computer (from a friend)

Dear Lord,

Every single evening
As I’m lying here in bed,
This tiny little Prayer
Keeps running through my head.

God bless all my family
Wherever they may be,
Keep them warm and safe from harm
For they’re so close to me.

And God, there is one more thing
I wish that you could do,
Hope you don’t mind me asking
Please bless my computer too.

Now I know that it’s unusual
To Bless a motherboard,
But listen just a second
While I explain it to you, Lord.

You see that little metal box
Holds more than odds and ends,
Inside those small compartments
Rest so many of my friends.

I know so much about them
By the kindness that they give,
And this little scrap of metal
Takes me in to where they live.

By faith is how I know them
Much the same as you,
We share in what life brings us
And from that our friendships grew.

Please take an extra minute
>From your duties up above,
To bless those in my address book
That’s filled with so much love.

Wherever else this prayer may reach
To each and every friend,
Bless each e-mail inbox
And each person who hits send.

When you update your Heavenly list
On your own CD-ROM,
Bless everyone who says this prayer
Sent up to GOD.com.

A teenage girl had been talking on the phone for about half an hour, and
then she hung up.

“Wow!” said her father, “That was short.  You usually talk for two
hours. What happened?”

“Wrong number…” replied the girl.

Cat Heaven

A Cat died and went to heaven. God met her at the golden gate and said,
“You have been a good cat all of these years. Anything you want is yours
for the asking.” I would like a real  fluffy  pillow to sleep on.”

God said, “Say no more.” Instantly the cat had a huge fluffy pillow.

A few days later, six mice were killed in an accident and they all went
to heaven at the same time. God met the mice at the gates of heaven with
the same offer that he made the cat. The  mice said, “Well we have had
to run all of our lives, from  cats, dogs and even people >with brooms.
If we could just have some little roller skates we would never have to
run again.”

God answered, It is done.”

All the mice had beautiful little roller skates.  About a week later God
decided to check on the cat. He found  her sound >asleep on her fluffy
pillow.. God gently awakened the cat and asked, “Is every thing OK? How
have you been doing? Are you  happy?”

The cat replied, “Oh it is wonderful. I have never been so  happy in my
life. My pillow is so fluffy and those little meals on  wheels you have
been sending over are delicious.
