HERE, THERE, AND EVERYWHERE
We are 'awn root' today, heading for the NC Smokies to visit Anna's sponsling and husband. They built a house on top a mountain near Maggie Valley, NC, wherever that is.
We are leaving from a shrine owned by an order of Oblates--missionaries--who work among the poorest-of-the-poor in over 70 countries. It has been a rich and rewarding awareness for me to be here. It is good!
And we are going to God's very own retreat place, His Creation of beautiful mountains. We shall attend meetings there. In fact , we have been to a meeting each day this trip. It is an unbelievably wonderful experience, meeting with AA peeps everywhere we go. I am SO grateful!
Since I didn't have anything blog-worthy on my mind for Today, I hope you'll settle for a bit of humor--if ya haven't heard it before, that is:
A couple of hunters chartered a plane to fly them into deep forest territory.
Two weeks later the pilot came to take them back. He took a look at the animals they had shot and said, "This plane won't take more than one wild buffalo. You'll have to leave the other behind."
"But last year the pilot let us take two in a plane this size," the hunters protested.
This pilot was doubtful, but finally he said, "Well, if you did it last year I guess we can do it again."
So the plane took off with the three men and two buffaloes. But it couldn't gain height and crashed into a neighboring hill.
The men climbed out of the wreckage and dazedly looked around.
One hunter said to the other, "Where do you think we are?"
The other inspected the surroundings and said, "I think we're about two miles to the left of where we crashed last year."
(NOTE: If I keep doing the same thing, I'll keep getting the same result.)
DAILY TRIVIA: Ancient Greeks (c. 250 B.C.) believed that eating parsley would prevent them from getting drunk. They were wrong!
Bloggers--and, if ya do not know this...I LOVE ya's--REALLY!
