Fisherman's Funeral


   This TGIF issue is long. Very long. It's got long jokes and long videos. I think they're interesting and entertaining but they're just long. You wanna spend the next 2 hours doing nothing else? Then go ahead and read and watch everything. Otherwise, take a bite at a time. I know some of you rush through life and take a few stuff here and there and that's perfectly fine. That's what this email's all about anyway. Relax. Enjoy your time. Learn something.

   Watched a Robert De Niro movie called "Everyone's Fine." I cried. Yeah, I know. I'm a push over when it comes to family relationships. Gets me every time. But that movie hit home in many ways. I think of retirees who followed the road map that everyone follows. You know --- the one that says get an education, get a job, work hard, earn as much as you can for your family, etc.. To their chagrin, many senior citizens, in their sunset years discover that the road map also ends. Where do you go from there? After you build your castle, why isn't anyone there? Many, like De Niro in the movie, realize they never really knew their kids. Sounds like the song "Cats in the Cradle," doesn't it? After all their years of labor, they're left out in the cold --- alone, separated from their children with health issues that confine them to the prison of their home.

   What's it all about, Alfie? Is it just for the moment we live? Without God (without that spiritual dimension) life is indeed just for that moment. How sad.

   I know of an atheist who confided that she wished she had the faith that I have so life would be more meaningful. Strange but honest wish.

    The longest distance in the world? About 9 inches -- the distance between your heart and your brain.

Fisherman Funeral
Contributed by Rick of Chino Hills, CA

A funeral procession pulled into a cemetery. Several carloads of family members followed a black truck towing a boat with a coffin in it.

A passer-by remarked, "That guy must have been a very avid fisherman.”

"Oh, he still is," remarked one of the mourners. As a matter of fact, he's headed off to the lake as soon as we bury his wife.”

Some people say this is the 11th anniversary of the greatest dance scene in history. I don't know if I will go that far but it certainly brings back a lot of happy memories for me. If you are not familiar with the movie, it's about this social misFIT who's been practicing this dance number to FIT in.

The Bridge at Q'eswachaka

This is not a joke. Got teenagers? Think they're responsible? Trust them? Watch this real life drama of teens meeting strangers via their cell phones. When you realize there are 750,000 registered predators in the U.S., you wonder why there aren't more stories about sex trafficing, rapes and murders.

Wow, I haven't started the videos, but had to tell you "End of Times" was very enlightening for me today. I'm going to try to think a second time before charging into a situation.

Also, I cannot wait for Grandchildren to get home from school, so I can ask them to read the one-liners, pretty funny !

Rick of Chino Hills, CA

Liked the topic of your blog: "What's it all about?"

We, in our autumn years realize that so well, and Happy to say, that the Lord has been good to us in our autumn years. I've just finished re-reading my favorite author, Rosamunde Pilcher, "The Shell Seekers", and am struck by a phrase: " One of the great gift of parents to their children is their independence. Provide for your old age so you do not have to burden your children with having to take care of you. "
