Martin arrived late for Sunday school. Miss Walter, his teacher, knew that Martin was usually very punctual so she asked him if anything was wrong.

Martin replied no, that he had been going fishing but his dad told him that he needed to go to church.

Miss Walter was very impressed and asked the lad if his dad had explained to him why it was more important to go to church than to go fishing?

Martin replied, “Yes he did. Dad said he didn’t have enough bait for both of us.”

    Funny…and probably taken from a true story! 🙂 By the way, I’ve been to the Manzanar Relocation site and some of the buildings are still there. Not one of America’s more shining moments!

    I am way behind and skipped comments on the last few, but I like this one.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
