Bud's World

Bud’s funnies
“A banker is a fellow who lends you his umbrella when the sun is shining,
but wants it back the minute it begins to rain.”
~ Mark Twain
“Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.”
~ Henny Youngman

I was just wondering…
If a parsley farmer is sued can they “garnish” his wages?
How can someone be dirt poor, and another be filthy rich?
If one synchronized swimmer gets a cramp, do the rest get cramps too?
If you're an atheist and swear on the Bible, have you committed perjury?
Why when two planes almost hit each other is it called a near miss? Shouldn't it be called a near hit?

From the Choir Loft
This Tuesday evening (6/24) we will sing our patriotic musical at Heritage Village in Gerry, NY. We are taking this season as a chance to minister to people all around our community. This will be the first of eight concerts as we sing to an estimated 6,000 people. Pray for us as we present this message of our appreciation to God for his many blessings bestowed on our country.

~ Benjamin Disraeli
“The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work.”
~ Robert Frost
“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love, and the future to God’s providence.”
~ St. Augustine
