Thank You Georgie

Petunia, (Pet for short) would be the first to admit that the church she was now sitting in was really one of the beautiful places in the world. On the eve of her fifteenth birthday as she sat straight up (like her mother said), and legs crossed (like her father said), she couldn’t stop the tears from welling under her bright green eyes.

“Stop it,” her Dad whispered, “Nothing you do or say will change our offering today, now gimme.”

Without another word Pet passed her six month old baby brother Georgie to her Dad who in turn passed him to the woman sitting next to him and on and on until Pastor Todd grabbed Georgie with is sweaty cold hands.

“Today,” Pastor Todd boomed as he held Georgie above his head, “The Millers have given us their first born son to die in the river just as She above demands so that we will live, Praise the Millers and bless our church!

Everybody Falls

But I did everything my Dad told me to,” Timmy pleaded, to a seemingly empty room, “So why am I here? I’m only nine.

An elderly stepped out of the darkness to his left, “Hey there kiddo,” the man said, “I’m here to hold your hand and take you with me, they are very excited to meet you kiddo.”

“I did the right thing Grandpa,” Timmy replied, “My Dad told me to tell him when, our step Dad hit or shoved my Mom, and I did, I texted him as soon as things happened. He told me he thought I was very brave and was on his way.”

“I know,” Grandpa replied, “You can’t be brave all the time, even the mightiest of heroes fall some time. There was an accident, but don’t worry buddy, it’s just one life, one day soon enough they will all be here with us.

Today In A History With Facebook: Frisky Old Ladies

1985 was a great year in almost any way you look at it. Goonies and Back to the Future introduced new adventures to all of us, Microsoft released their very first Windows, and the Titanic was finally found. On September 14 of 1985 we watched for the first time a bunch of old ladies living their golden years to the fullest. Golden Girls.

Facebook, A Satire History

A new addition to my blog. How different would things be if we had Facebook and social media on this day in history.

Hopefully they make you chuckle, and some will probably sound awesome to me, and lame by you. It’s cool it happens. My goal is not to offend anyone so hopefully I can maintain that. Now, the part I am most excited about, is getting some from you guys. Just look ahead a few days, or even early morning on a day when you think you have a hilarious idea to make one. All who do I’ll be more than happy to have your name under your post, with a link to your blog or website. So, let’s get our funny on.
