  • I love free stuff.
    When we lived in California we lived near scads of big- box warehouse stores that always gave away free samples. Sometimes, if you got there on the right day at the right time, you could eat enough free samples and be too full to eat lunch or dinner when you got home.
    I wasn’t thinking of free stuff a few Sundays ago when I stopped at a little Pentecostal church I had never visited before, even though I’ve talked to the pastor many times.
    And what to my wondering eyes should appear? Free goodies and coffee!

    Calvary Assembly of God will host a Princess Tea on July 11 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the church (across from the high school). Have fun, lunch and prizes with your favorite princess.
    Cost is $10 and the proceeds will be used to pay off the church debt.


  • I was at my mother-in-law’s house last summer and was putting up a handrail on her steps for her.
    While I was attaching the handrail, my drill slipped and the screw driver bit slipped off the screw and into my thumbnail.
    Ouch, did it hurt.
    I stopped, took care of my injury and then proceeded to go back to work installing the handrail. I got the job done without any further problems or injuries.
