Another Friday Funny...!

Another Friday funny from my baby Sis!

That girl just cracks me up sometimes! Pretty good cook as well! She does real good with cookies!(You paying attention, Sis?)

Grandma is eighty eight years old and still drives her own car.

She writes: Dear Grand-daughter,

The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker ..

I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting.. So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.

Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed.

I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed. It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed.

I found that lots of people love Jesus! While I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God!' 'Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!'

What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus!

Everyone started honking!

I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people.

I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love!

There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach..

I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air.

I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant.

He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something.

Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii, so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back.

My grandson burst out laughing. Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!!

A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed.

So, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on through the intersection.

I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared. So I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!!

Will write again soon,

Love, Grandma

You just gotta love old folks and the positive outlook they have on things! Bless their pea-picking hearts!

Coffee on the patio again this morning! I still have some coconut macaroons I'll share!

Haven't had coconut macaroons for a long time. Hope you have plenty of 'em!

Bubba -

I'll trade you cookies for homemade bread, OK? Glad to share the funnies with you anytime, just don't let Mom think that this is about her - she probably wouldn't find that so funny!

Big hugs -

I was laughing so hard I almost spit my coffee out. That is just way too funny. Unfortunately as I approach another birthday I find that could be me real soon - haha. Thanks for starting my day off with a good laugh.

Coffee sounds good and so do the cookies. Yum

Hey Ben...
That saying does bring back memories of ol' Ernie, doesn't it?

Thanks, buddy, for coming over this morning!


Hey Sixbears...
Making folks grin is always a good thing for me!

Thanks for the visit this morning!


Hey Anon 6:23...
I'm glad that you enjoyed it and happy you could come by today!


Hey Phyllis...
Nothing wrong with starting the day with a grin and a cookie!

I sure am happy you could come by this morning!


Hey Sis...
Sounds like a fair trade to me! Bring on the cookies!

I appreciate the visit, Sis!


Hey Linda...
If the truth be known, it could almost be a lot of us!

I won't tell anyone if you don't!

Thanks so much for coming by this morning!


Hey WolfDancer...
Good to see you again! It's been a while!

I'm happy that you liked it, and proud you could drop by today!


Hey John...
Glad you enjoyed it, my friend!

Always a pleasure to have you come by!

Hey JoJo...
Providing you with a laugh to start your day makes my day better!

Thanks, sweetie, for dropping by this morning!

The Hawaiian good luck sign, I guess now I will have to change my attitude about the people who give me that sign.

HermitJim said...

Hey Dizzy...
You might want to hold off on returning the sign, just for safety! Never can tell when they might take it wrong, ya know?

Hey, thanks for the visit today!
