"Pull, Buddy! Pull!"

I remember growing up in a small church; happiness was just knowing what the unspoken prayer request was...


Even little children recognize the importance of prayer. During a quiet moment in a Sunday night service, a 3-year-old little boy began to get very rambunctious and noisy. His mom yanked him up into her arms and was carrying him down the aisle at a pretty fast pace. He knew what was ahead of him, and began yelling, “Pray for me! Pray for me!

A young man hired by a supermarket reported for his first day of work. The manager greeted him with a warm handshake and a smile, gave him a broom and said, “Your first job will be to sweep out the store.”

“But I’m the graduate of a major university,” the young man replied indignantly.

“Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t know that,” said the manager.“Here, give me the broom — I’ll show you how.”

Hospital visits can be quite challenging sometimes. I’ll never forget visiting with a fellow church member and noticing the gentleman in the hospital bed next to him. He was covered with bandages from head to toe. 

I struck up a conversation with him. Before long, I asked, “What do you do for a living?

He said, “I’m a former window washer.”

I asked, “When did you give it up?”

He replied, “About halfway down...”

A young boy refused to do his homework, and his father was trying to convince him to do it.

He said to his son, “When Abe Lincoln was your age, he was studying books by the light of the fireplace.”

The son replied, “Well, when Lincoln was your age, he was President!”

It has not been my day.

I went to buy some clothes at a department store. When I walked out of the fitting room, the sales clerk took one look at me and just shook her head.

She said, “No, no. Those jeans look HORRIBLE on you. I’m going to get you another pair.”

I said, “Never mind. I was trying on the shirt.”

A man was passing through a small country town when he accidentally drove his car off into a ditch in a very remote area. Luckily, a local farmer came to help with his big, strong horse named Buddy.

He hitched Buddy up to the car and yelled, “Pull, Nellie, pull!” Buddy didn’t move.Then the farmer hollered, “Pull, Buster, pull!” Buddy still didn’t respond.

Once more the farmer commanded, “Pull, Coco, pull!” Still nothing.

Then the farmer nonchalantly said, “Pull, Buddy, pull.” Immediately, the horse easily dragged the car out of the ditch.  The motorist was most appreciative and very curious. He asked the farmer why he called his horse by the wrong name three times.

The farmer replied,“Well ... Buddy is blind, and if he thought he was the only one pulling, he wouldn’t even try!”

A mother asked her small son what he would like for his birthday.

“I’d like a little brother,” the boy said.

“Oh my! That’s such a big wish,” said the mother. “Why do you want a little brother?”

“Well,” said the boy, “there’s only so much I can blame on the dog!”

A lady was discussing the various aspects and possible outcomes of an insurance policy with the clerk at the insurance agency. During the discussion, she asked, “Suppose I take the life insurance for my husband today for a million dollars, and tomorrow he dies? What will I get?”

The clerk eyed her suspiciously and replied, “Probably a life sentence.”
