Shoot, the RV park doesn’t escape my sharp eye as we walk i.e.
**** ‘Hey sweetheart that RV isn’t level, wonder how they live in it like that?’
****‘You would think they would have the courtesy not to park so close to their neighbor, their awnings almost touch.’
****‘That lady always rides her bike on the wrong side of the street.’
****‘Why would ANYONE buy an RV that color?’
****‘Why would they park right beside us, there are plenty of open areas?’
****‘That is a dumb looking man in that van, he just sits there all day.’
****‘She walks the dog, her husband is picking up the poop (or vice versa).’
Now I would not be so discourteous to do that all in one walk, but over the year she could probably write a book about what I say.
One guy that did not level real great. Come to find out had only one arm. Oh, and the dumb looking guy? Yeah, you guessed it. He is a dummy. Sherry tells me the lady travels alone since her husband passed away. Her daughter insists that she carry the dummy so it will not look like she is traveling alone. (Shirl came to our house a few years ago with an ugly guy in the car with her, I forget his name, but we all got a kick out of it.)
Now for the story Jim sent:
A young couple moved into a new neighborhoodThe next morning while they were eating breakfast,The young woman saw her neighbor hanging the wash outside.'That laundry is not very clean,' she said.'She doesn't know how to wash correctly.Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.'Her husband looked on, but remained silent.Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry,The young woman would make the same comments.About one month later, the woman was surprised to see aNice clean wash on the line and said to her husband:'Look, she has learned how to wash correctly.I wonder who taught her this.'The husband said, 'I got up early this morning andCleaned our windows.'And so it is with life. What we see when watching othersDepends on the purity of the window through which we look.Now I like that story because it is the GUY who brings light into the subject.
Bible scholars will remember the ‘mote and beam’ parable.
Thanks Jim, This was worth passing along.
‘VINNIE!!!’ THAT WAS THE NAME OF Shirl’s dummy.(I think)
