Signs of Spring

Ladybug and I went on a walk yesterday and the crocuses are up and blooming in purple, white, and yellow. We didn't see any snow drops, but they are out there somewhere too. We have some early daffodil varieties just getting ready to bloom as well in the front yard. Spring is making its push here in mid-February. We are ready and welcoming the change in season.

I will leave you with a Mormon joke I found on the web (for my couple of Mormon readers out there):

A young Mormon was on his mission, carrying the Book of Mormon in his coat pocket when he was shot by an armed robber. Fortunately, the bullet lodged in the book and saved him. "See," the missionary said to his companion, "that bullet couldn't get through Second Nephi either.

Ha, Ha! I where you got that one dude! Seen and heard lots of little birds flitting about as well.

We're due some more rain, but it's not so cold anymore!

Nice joke. Of course, another way to interpret that would be that the man's life was saved by "The Word". I'm sure a lot of people would try to see it that way.

Considering we live in an age when there are elected congressmen in the U.S. promoting the ideas of a guy who claims Einstein was a tool of the devil and the Copernican view of the solar system is a Zionist plot, I'd be careful with the religious jokes. Someone just might take you seriously.

I am willing to take that chance. Sometimes a joke is just a joke.

As Joseph Smith said with his last breath, "I don't care how you Brigham, just Brigham young!"

Your Mormon joke is a long running joke with the SLC police dept. They say they 'may as well use the Book of Mormon as a bullet-proof vest because not even a bullet could make it through 2Nephi...' I've read the whole book, and I must say thay bullet has a very slim chance.... >from your former neighbor!

Ok, since I "grew up Catholic" I can officially submit the joke below for some gentle religious humor:

Two Priests On Vacation

Two priests were going to Hawaii on vacation and decided that they would make this a real vacation by not wearing anything that would identify them as clergy.

As soon as the plane landed, they headed for a store and bought some really outrageous shorts, shirts, sandals, sunglasses, and etc.

The next morning they went to the beach, dressed in their "tourist" garb and were sitting on beach chairs, enjoying a drink, the sunshine and the scenery when a "drop dead gorgeous" blonde in a tiny bikini came walking straight towards them. They couldn't help but stare and when she passed them, she smiled and said, "Good morning, Father" - "Good morning, Father," nodding and addressing each of them individually, then passed on by.

They were both stunned. How in the world did she recognize them as priests?

The next day they went back to the store, bought even more outrageous outfits-these were so loud, you could hear them before you even saw them-and again settled on the beach in their chairs to enjoy the sunshine, etc.

After a while, the same gorgeous blonde, wearing a string bikini this time, came walking toward them again. (They were glad they had sunglasses, because their eyes were about to pop out of their heads.)

Again, she approached them and greeted them individually: "Good morning, Father," "Good morning Father," and started to walk away.

One of the priests couldn't stand it and said. "Just a minute, young lady. Yes, we are priests, and proud of it, but I have to know, how in the world did YOU know?"

"Oh, Father, don't you recognize me? I'm Sister Angela!"
