#1178 Wings Over The Mountains of Life

Cars and Old Age
A young boy had just gotten his driving permit. He asked his 
father, who was a minister, if they could discuss the use of the 
car. His father took him to his study and said to him, "I'll 
make a deal with you. You bring your grades up, study your 
Bible a little and get your hair cut and we'll talk about it." 

After about a month the boy came back and again asked his father 
if they could discuss use of the car. They again went to the 
father's study where his father said, "Son, I've been real proud 
of you. You have brought your grades up, you've studied your 
Bible diligently, but you didn't get your hair cut!" 

The young man waited a moment and replied, "You know Dad, I've 
been thinking about that. You know, Samson had long hair, Moses 
had long hair, Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long 

To which his father replied, 

"Yes, and they walked every where they went!" 

Three old sisters - 92, 94,and 96 years old, respectively, all 
lived together. 

One day the oldest drew a bath. She put one foot in the water,
paused, then called downstairs to her sisters, 

"Am I getting in the tub or out of the tub?" 

The middle sister started up the stairs to help, then paused and 
called back downstairs, "Was I going up or coming down?" 

The youngest sister, who was sitting at the kitchen table having 
tea, said, "I guess I'll have to help. 

I hope I never get that forgetful!" and knocked on wood. 

She got up then, paused, and called, 

"I'll come up as soon as I see who's at the door!"
