Sunday school disputes, catching up with friends

Irby, Marna.jpg

We have all heard the old saying, "another day, another dollar." Well, my dollar and I had an exciting time at Sunday School.
My 100-year-old friend, Velda, passed the basket to collect our benevolent fund dollars. I had no folding money, so wrote a check for a little extra. Velda announced she did not take checks, so I tore mine up. Remember, I told you, she won't accept loose change either.
She handed me a $10 bill and said, "Put this in. Now, you owe me."

White River: Outdoor ‘March Madness’

in
11-1.

I love me some March madness. I look forward to it every year about this time; I get excited at the prospects of what’s about to happen.
Oh, you thought I was talking basketball? Sorry, that’s not what March Madness means to this outdoors guy. What flips my switch is the opportunity each March to go alley-oop over the prospects of heading to the White River in north Arkansas for the chance to apply the pick and roll and slam-dunk on some rainbow trout.

Ninety percent also said that, if given the chance to start over in selecting a college or university to attend, they would choose Tech again.
