HOW TO GRADE EGGS


I'm not really smart, but I think the carton 
says there are eighteen as in "18" eggs.  And
also, large as in "big".



But the contents look like small as in "little"
and about three dozen as in "36".

Well, really I have a friend who raises quails.
As a result he always has an excess of quail eggs
and freely passes out the excess eggs.

I used to have quails.  Those things are "laying
fools".  They can outlay a chicken any day in
the week.  If I remember correctly a chicken 
averages about one egg every day and one half.
But the quails average about one and one half
eggs every day.

We now eat a lot of quail eggs.  If you have 
never eaten quail eggs, they taste just like a 
chicken egg.  You can see that they are a lot
smaller.  This makes them very tedious to 
work with.

Mostly we just have boiled quail eggs.
It only takes about a dozen to make a 
breakfast.

But one of my favorite ways to use quail
eggs is - pickled.  They are great that way,
that is; if your wife will do all the work.

SMART STRAW




I have spent years looking for advice on 
different subjects.  But I failed to realize
that it was available to me in the can of 
WD-40 on my shelf all the time.

Look, it says it right on the can.  The can
of WD-40 has a "SMART" straw on it.   
Wow! wisdom right there beside me at
my finger tips.

OPEN MIND COLLECTING TRASH.






This is one of the trash containers at Tarra Studios in
Durham, Arkansas.  Of course it has nothing to do
with your mind.  That is, it should not.

But I have noticed something over a long, long life.
Most people who pride themselves on having an
"open mind", tend to collect a lot of trash in their 
mind or thinking.  Would it not be better to guard
very closely what we allow to come into our mind?

A NEW NEIGHBOR


A NEW NEIGHBOR

I looked out the kitchen window and saw that
one of the neighbors had come to visit.  But this
guy is a new neighbor  who never talks about anything
 that I am interested in, so, I just pretended to be too 
busy to visit.

THE GRAND KID'S MOTORCYCLE


THE GRAND KID'S MOTORCYCLE


If you have grand kids you understand the situation.
The grandson found a motorcycle at a good price.
Of course, it was not all together, or it is what we call a
basket case.

"Grandpa will you help me fix it?"  You know the rest
of the story.  He bought it.  I put it together.  Then after
it is together and running then you find out what else
is the matter with it.  So, I had to take the engine and 
transmission apart at least twice to fix one thing or 
another.

No, I did not do the paint job.  At least he did that
much.

A WILD PARTY





A WILD PARTY.

This is grandpa's idea of a wild party.
This is one of my great grandsons, Easton,
at his first birthday party.

He is teaching grandpa how to dig in and
enjoy life.  Sure am glad that his parents 
had to clean him up.  He did live through 
it O.K.

This does make me think of a portion of 
the Holy Scriptures that say's:

"Young people, it's wonderful to be young!
Enjoy every minute of it.  Do everything you
want to do; take it all in.  But remember that
you must give an account to God for everything
you do.  So refuse to worry, and keep your
body healthy.  But remember that youth, with
a whole life before you, is meaningless."  
(Ecclesiastes 11:9,10 NLT)
