A stalwart Vermont farmer
bought some land that was still just as it had been before the Pilgrims landed.
He dug up hundreds of stones and built a fence; cut down trees to create a
clearing; built a house and a small barn; cleared land for pasture, dug a well
and over several years just generally worked his fingers to the bone in creating
a small, neat, productive farm.
Eventually his pastor came out for a visit and marveled rather fulsomely, and at
great length, at all that "you and God have done together."
"Eh," the farmer said dubiously. "Ya shoulda seen the place when God ran it on

our daughter went off to college, our family took a vacation in Colorado,
flying to Denver and renting a car. We visited the Royal Gorge Bridge,
which is more than 1000 feet above the Arkansas River.
Walking out onto the bridge, I noticed it swayed in the wind. Then a car
went past us, and the wood-plank roadway moved beneath my feet. "I don't
think I want to drive the car across this bridge," I finally said.
"What are you worried about?" our daughter replied. "It's a rental."

brought a litter of golden-retriever puppies to my veterinary clinic for
inoculations and worming. As the look-alike pups squirmed over and under
one another in their box, I realized it would be difficult to tell the
treated ones from the rest. I turned on the water faucet, wet my fingers,
and moistened each
dog's head when I had finished.
After the fourth puppy, I noticed my hitherto talkative client had grown
silent. As I sprinkled the last pup's head, the woman leaned forward and
whispered, "I didn't know they had to be baptized."

"You want me to pick up the pen as if I were pregnant, the way my wife
would do it?" the husband asked.
"Exactly," replied the instructor.
To the delight of the other husbands, he turned to his wife and said,
"Honey, pick up that pen for me."

said, "are there any questions?"
