Darlene's Daily


Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones.

-- Phillips Brooks

An elderly fisherman wrote to a mail order house the following:
"Please send me one of those gasoline engines for my boat you
show on page 438, and, if it's any good, I'll send you a check."

In a short time he received the following reply:  "Please send check; if it's any good, we'll send the engine!"


The true home has no boss, but it does have at least one wise leader.


A life-long city man, tired of the rat race, decided he was going to give up the city life, move to the country, and become a chicken farmer. He found a nice, used chicken farm, which he bought. Turns out that his next door neighbor was also a chicken farmer.

The neighbor came for a visit one day and said,  "Chicken farming isn't easy. Tell you what. To help you get started, I'll give you 100 chickens."

The new chicken farmer was thrilled. Two weeks later, the new neighbor stopped by to see how things were going.

The new farmer said, "Not too good. All 100 chickens died."

The neighbor said, "Oh, I can't believe that. I've never had any trouble with my chickens. I'll give you 100 more."

Another two weeks went by, and the neighbor stops in again. The new farmer says, "You're not going to believe this, but the second 100 chickens died too."

Astounded, the neighbor asked, "What went wrong? What did you do to them?"

Well, says the new farmer, "I'm not sure whether I'm planting them too deep or not far apart enough."

Money is a purchaser of anything except happiness and a passport to any place except heaven..


Surgeons invited to dinner parties are often asked to carve the meat, or worse yet, to watch the host carve while commenting on the surgeon's occupation. At one party, a surgeon friend was watching the carving while Harry, his host, kept up a running commentary: "How am I doing, Doc? How do you like that technique? I'd make a pretty good surgeon, don't you think?"

When the host finished and the slices of meat lay neatly on the serving platter, the surgeon finally spoke up, "Anybody can take them apart, Harry. Now let's see you put them back together again."

Thanks Darlene....I'll remember that last one when I carve our turkey.

God loves you,
