Since we moved to Florida, I’ve noticed that people keep donkeys. I’m one of those people who never thought that a donkey was worth a whole lot, but I’ve since learned that I have been mistaken on that subject.
Many people in this state have realized that donkeys can perform a valuable service.
The National Council of the Society of St.Vincent de Paul (SVdP) today awarded a $1,000 grant to help the needy in Chiefland. The money is part of the Society’s annual Friends of the Poor grant program and will provide several forms of assistance, including help with utility bills.
Last Saturday, instead of hunting or fishing, I took a morning run with a friend. We both were not feeling too good because we had run a little harder the day before, so we cut a planned 8-mile run down to 7 miles. I had also just joined my wife and daughter in a detox diet the day before and was craving my jelly beans or something sweet really bad. It was not a good morning.
We were saying our goodbyes in the school parking lot when momma must’ve completely lost her mind! “Here son,” she smiled, handing me her camera, “Take a few pictures on your field trip.” I gulped like I’d swallowed my tonsils. Did she remember I was just in the fourth grade?
