Hunting On Sunday

I had everything planned and had told my wife I would not be going to church with her on Sunday. My wife reminded me that Sunday was the Sabbath Day and hunting a trophy buck should not be part of the Sabbath.

  1. I scouted the area all summer.
  2. I searched out the best location for my tree-stand.
  3. I set it all up a month ahead of time.
  4. I trailed the herd.
  5. I picked out a trophy buck.
  6. Two days before opening day I rechecked every aspect of the hunt.
  7. Everything was in place.
  8. Sunday morning, I woke up at 2 am.
  9. I put on my camo, loaded my pack, set out for my stand.
  10. This was destined to be an epic hunt.
  11. As I approached my deer stand……..


I called my wife and told her I had decided not to hunt on the Sabbath and would meet her at church. The Sunday sermon was entitled
“The Lord Works In Mysterious Ways”.

Priceless And Brief

In a bid to stem taxpayer losses for bad loans guaranteed by federal housing agencies Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) proposed that borrowers be required to make a 5% down payment in order to qualify for a loan.

His proposal was rejected 57-42 on a straight party-line vote because, as Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn) explained,  Passage of such a requirement would restrict home ownership to only those who can afford it.”

I can’t add anything to this … I just can’t.
