     Like all labs, Leroy loved to fetch. He just happened to be deathly afraid of water! It was sure something to see when those two driving forces collided. If I’d of had any business sense I’d have charged people admission to watch him go. I’d have gotten richer than whoever owns that talking Gecko.

    Many people around the world recite a prayer asking for God’s kingdom to come, yet they have little idea of what they are asking for. In sharp contrast to the often conflicting, confusing and complicated explanations of that kingdom, Jehovah’s Witnesses promise a clear and refreshing approach to the topic at their 2011 “Let God’s Kingdom Come!” District Convention.

  • A worthwhile journey begins with one small step

    I didn’t know a mufflerless station wagon could pass an eighteen wheeler on one of those interstate loops, but at fourteen, I reckon I didn’t know a lot of things. I DID know if I wanted to see fifteen I’d better get “Drunken Yee-Haw man” to let me out of his hot-rod.
