World War II, specifically D-Day and the invasion of Normandy. "Isn't
there a movie about that?" she asked. I told her there was, but I
couldn't think of the name. Then it came to her, "Oh, I remember! Isn't
it something like 'Finding Private Nemo?'"

I Stand Strong For My Beliefs
little boy wanted $100.00 very badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing
happened. Then he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100.00.
When The postal authorities received the letter addressed to: God,
USA, they decided to send it to the President. The President was so
amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a $5.00
bill. The President thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a
little boy. The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 bill and sat
down and wrote a thank-you note to God, which read: "Dear God, Thank
you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that for some
reason you sent it through Washington, DC. Do you know those bureaucrats
deducted $95.00 in taxes!"

On a Personal Note
I recently took a weekend vacation to Brown County State Park, which is about 1hr south of Indianapolis. It is a relatively small park, but with lots of outdoor activities to keep you busy. We went to several wineries, rode horses, and even stayed in a cabin that overlooked the park - what a view. Everything thing was perfect ... until we heard on the news that a black bear was spotted in Brown County for the fist time in several decades. Apparently the bear swam over the Ohio River from Kentucky, most likely in search of food. The last time I checked, human was on the menu for bears!

young girl who was writing a paper for school came to her father and
asked, "Dad, what is the difference between anger and exasperation?"
The father replied, "It is mostly a matter of degree. Let me show you
what I mean." With that the father went to the telephone and dialed a
number at random. To the man who answered the phone, he said, "Hello, is
Melvin there?" The man answered, "There is no one living here named
Melvin. Why don't you learn to look up numbers before you dial". "See,"
said the father to his daughter. "That man was not a bit happy with our
call. He was probably very busy with something, and we annoyed him. Now
watch..." The father dialed the number again. "Hello, is Melvin
there?" asked the father. "Now look here!" came the heated reply. "You
just called this number, and I told you that there is no Melvin here!
You've got a lot of guts calling again!" The receiver slammed down hard.
The father turned to his daughter and said, "You see, that was anger."
The father dialed the same number three more times, with increasingly
furious responses. Finally he said, "Now I'll show you what exasperation
means." He dialed the same number, and when a violent voice roared,
"Hello!" The father calmly said, "Hello, this is Melvin. Have there
been any calls for me?"
