Parents still are way ahead!

A teenage boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of his father as to when they could discuss his use of the car. His father said he'd make a deal with his son: 'You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, and get your hair cut. Then we'll talk about the car.' The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he'd settle for the offer, and they agreed on it.

After about six weeks his father said, 'Son, you've brought your grades up and I've observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I'm disappointed you haven't had your hair cut. The boy said, 'You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that, and I've noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair...and there's even strong evidence that Jesus had long hair.' You're going to love the Dad's reply:

'Did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?'

And that is the truth.
Do hope Abe is healing nicely. Please take care of yourself also while you are at it.

Great one, didn't see that coming at all!

Poor boy, he didn't expect that either! LOL.

Woo Hoo, DWS was good. I think Nicole will win.

Hope Abe is recovering well.

Good night!

Yesterday evening I came back from Germany and thismorning I learned Abe had got health problems.
Then I read he came back home. I wish him a quick and good recovering.
