  • Trust God to heal your pain

    When I was a teenager, I had a bad accident while riding on the back of a motorbike.
    I would like to tell you that I was responsible and had on a helmet, shoes and jacket. The truth, however, is that I hadn’t taken time to put on any sort of protective clothing.
    Actually, my friends and I had been at the pool all day and did not even have shoes on our feet.

  • The good news about bad news

    When someone says, “I have good news and bad news,” which one do you prefer to hear first?
    Joe went to his doctor who posed that question to him.
    “Give me the good news first,” Joe said.
    “You have 24 hours to live,” the doctor told him.
    Clutching his chest, Joe said, “If that’s the good news, what’s the bad news?”
    The doctor said, “I meant to tell you yesterday.”
    Ba dump bump. (Groan.)

  • One of the good guys

    During the painful viewing of the Harrison County, Pendleton County doubleheader, I was lucky enough to share a little more than one half of a game talking with one of Harrison County’s greats.  
    Teddy Taylor came up to where I sit in the “Catholic” section and we talked about many and varied subjects.  
    I say “one of the best-ever” not just talking about Teddy’s great football playing days but how he is an all around good person.
