From Bud's World

Bud’s funnies
A man was stranded on the proverbial deserted Pacific island for years. Finally one day a boat comes sailing into view, and the man frantically waves and draws the skipper's attention. The boat comes near the island and the sailor gets out and greets the stranded man.
After awhile the sailor asks, "What are those three huts you have here?"
"Well, that's my house there." "What's that next hut?" asks the sailor.
"I built that hut to be my church." "What about the other hut?"
"Oh, that's where I used to go to church."

I was just wondering…
Are clones people two?
What do you plant to grow a seedless watermelon?
Why do croutons come in airtight packages? It's just stale bread.
Why are a goose and his wife called geese, but a moose and his wife aren't called meese?

From the Choir Loft
The Patriotic concert will be presented tonight (7/6/08) at Sheridan United Methodist church at 7:00 pm. It’s a great tribute to all our past and current veterans. We also take this chance to thank God for all his wonderful blessings. Please support us by coming and bring a friend.

Today in History July 6
On this day in 1775, to explain why several thousand militia from the different Colonies were camped outside Boston, which was occupied by the British, the Continental Congress issued a Declaration of The Causes and Necessity of Taking Up Arms. It concluded:

“With a humble confidence in the mercies of the Supreme and impartial God and ruler of the universe, we most devoutly implore His divine goodness to protect us happily through this great conflict, and to dispose our adversaries to reconciliation on reasonable terms, and thereby to relieve the empire from the calamities of civil war.”
