04/24/14 Grif.Net – Cave-in

The Seven Dwarfs are in a cave when the roof collapses. Snow White runs to
the entrance and yells into the darkness, “Somebody, say something!”

A distant voice responds, “The Cubs will win the World Series!”

Snow White sighs, “Oh, thank goodness! At least Dopey is still alive!”

04/23/14 Grif.Net – Another Day

Yesterday I decided to work in my garden.

As I turn on the hose, I look over at my car and decide it needs washing.

As I start toward the garage, I notice mail on the table that I collected
from the mail box earlier. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the

I lay my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the waste paper basket
under the table, and notice that it is full.

So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the trash

But then I think, since I’m going to be near the post-box when I take out
the trash anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my check book off the table, and see that there is only 1 check left.

My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my
desk where I find the cup of coffee I’d been drinking.

I’m going to look for my checks, but first I need to set the coffee cup
aside so that I don’t accidentally knock it over.

The coffee is getting cold, and I decide to put it in the microwave to
reheat it a bit.

As I head toward the kitchen with the mug, a vase of flowers on the dining
room table catches my eye – they need water.

I put the coffee on the table and discover my reading glasses that I’ve been
searching for all morning.

I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I’m going to water the
flowers. I set the glasses back down on the worktop, fill a container with
water and suddenly spot the TV remote control.

Someone left it on the kitchen counter! I realize that tonight when we watch
TV, I’ll be looking for the remote control, but I won’t remember that it’s
on the kitchen counter, so I decide to put it back in the living room where
it belongs. But first I’ll water the flowers.

I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.

So, I set the remote control back on the counter, get some paper towels and
wipe up the spill.

Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.

At the end of the day:

- the car isn’t washed

- the bills aren’t paid

- there is a lukewarm mug of coffee sitting on the dining room table

- the flowers don’t have enough water

- there is still only one check in my check book

- I can’t find the remote control

- I can’t find my glasses

- and I don’t remember what I did with the car keys.

Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I’m really
baffled because I know I was busy all day, and I’m really tired.

I realize this is a serious problem, and I’ll try to get some help for it,
but first I’ll check my e-mail.

Some things you have to do every day. Eating seven apples on Saturday night
instead of one each day just isn’t going to get the job done.

Part of the secret to success is to eat what you like and let the food fight
it out on the inside.

Always take a good look at what you’re about to eat. It’s not so important
to know what it IS, but it’s critical to know what it WAS.

Anybody can make you enjoy the first bite of a dish, but only OUR chef can
make you enjoy the last.

At our restaurant we are not interested in justice; we’re interested in
peace and quiet.

If you read about the ill effects of drinking, we guarantee you will give up

“When people say, ‘Why don’t you just kind of get on the right side of
history?’ I said, ‘You’ve got to understand, this for me is not about the
right side or the wrong side of history. This is the right side of the
Bible, and unless God rewrites it, edits it, sends it down with His
signature on it, it’s not my Book to change.”
