INTRODUCTION    Today’s “Special”:  “A ‘Drive Funny’“

A teenager who had just received her learner’s permit offered to drive her parents to church. After a hair-raising ride, they finally reached their destination.

 

When the mother got out of the car she said emphatically, “Thank you!”

 

“Anytime,” her daughter replied with a smile.

 

As her mother headed for the church door, she said, “I wasn’t talking to you. I was talking to God.”

INTRODUCTION    Today’s “Special”:  “A taxi funny“:

“The passenger tapped the cab driver on the shoulder to ask him something. The driver screamed, lost control of the car, nearly hit a bus, went up on the sidewalk, and stopped inches from a department store window.

 

For a second everything went quiet in the cab, then the driver said, “Look mister, don’t ever do that again. You scared me half to death!”

INTRODUCTION    Today’s “Special”:  “Car keys“

Subject: Car keys…a senior moment…

Several days ago as I left a meeting at our church, I desperately gave myself a personal TSA pat down.  I was looking for my keys.  They were not in my pockets.  A quick search in the meeting room revealed nothing.  Suddenly I realized, I must have left them in the car.

INTRODUCTION

Today’s “Special”:  “Ethel“

An elderly man lay in a hospital, with his wife of 55 years sitting at his bedside. “Is that you, Ethel, at my side again?” he whispered.

“Yes, dear,” she answered.

He softly said to her, “Remember years ago when I was in the Veteran’s Hospital? You were with me then. You were with me when we lost everything in a fire. And Ethel, when we were poor—you stuck with me then too.” The man sighed and said, “I tell you, Ethel, you are bad luck!
