A Good Knight
Saying for the day: If you have a good knight protecting you then you can get a good night's sleep.
This is George. He is a brave knight even though he is a bit short.
For years George guarded our house ( when we lived in the parsonage). He kept all the bad people out. We often left the door unlocked and nothing was ever stolen. George was a good knight.
When we moved into our new home we sent poor George to the basement. I know that was no way to treat a faithful servant but he didn’t fit in our new entranceway.
So there poor George sat and sat. He gathered dust. We walked around him.
In one of our lets get rid of junk modes poor George ( the faithful servant) got classified as junk. We were going to list him on freecycle and see if anybody wanted him. We had decided if they didn’t George was going to the dump ( a bad end for a good knight).
I mentioned on this blog that George was going either to a new home or to the dump.
My daughter-in-law Lori (one of the few readers of this blog) thought that was horrible and interceded on George’s behalf.
Now George stands proudly in the entrance way to my son’s home. He is back guarding the family. I am sure he is happy.
Oh, they also took the train that shows behind George, Life is good.
9900 spins without a prize. Every say Old Hapless goes to a website called IWON.com . There he finds a slot machine with lots of great prizes. There are cameras, ipods, DVD players, and various amounts of cash. He gets fifty free spins on this machine. He has done this for 9900 spins and he hasn't won a single prize. Can you imagine a slot machine in a casino where you pull the lever 9900 times and never get three in a row. It boggles the mind. This is not a very friendly machine. So why does he keep at it? Its like the boy whose job was to shovel manure. Every day he came out of the barn whistling and happy. When asked how he could spend the day shoveling manure and still be happy he said " With all that manure there has to be a horse here somewhere." Hapless is still looking for the horse.
Well Uncle Wiggly lovers if the good old slot machine doesn't give him fifty more spins of manure and thus cause him to be to happy to blog. we will be back tomorrow with another adventure of "As the World Spins"
Another cold rainy day. We got almost nothing done. Went to church and then grocery shopping. The cold medicine I took caused me to be drowsy all day. Betty and I are still coughing. Well I need a breathing treatment.
