This feature is called “Catch a Smile” and its goal is to add a little humor and some smiles to everyone’s life.

Here’s a few:

When our lawnmower broke and wouldn’t run, my wife kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed. But, somehow I always had something else to take care of first… the shed, the boat, making beer.

Always something more important to me. Finally, she thought of a clever way to make her point.

When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house.

I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again I handed her a toothbrush.

I said, “When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway.”

The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.


I rear-ended a car this morning… the start of a REALLY bad day! The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!!

He looked up at me and said, “I am NOT Happy!”

So I said, “Well, which one ARE you then?”

That’s how the fight started.


My wife sat down next to me as I was flipping channels.

She asked, “What’s on TV?”

I said, “Dust.”

That’s how the fight started.


An old farmer’s advice:
• Keep skunks and bankers and lawyers at a distance.
• A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
• Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.
• Every path has a few puddles.
• When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.
• If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.
• Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.


Whatever you do, always give 100 percent. Unless you are donating blood.
