Argument Ender?

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.  An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position.  As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, 'Relatives of yours?'

'Yep,' the wife replied, 'in-laws.'

Preacher's Donkey

A man bought a donkey from a preacher. The preacher told the man that this donkey had been trained in a very unique way (being the donkey of a preacher). The only way to make the donkey go, is to say, "Hallelujah!"

The only way to make the donkey stop, is to say, "Amen!"

The man was pleased with his purchase and immediately got on the animal to try out the preacher's instructions.

"Hallelujah!" shouted the man. The donkey began to trot. "Amen!" shouted the man. The donkey stopped immediately.

"This is great!" said the man. With a "Hallelujah" he rode off, very proud of his new purchase.

The man traveled for a long time through the mountains. As he headed towards a cliff, he tried to remember the word to make the donkey stop.

"Stop," said the man. "Halt!" he cried. The donkey just kept going.

"Oh, no..."

"Bible...Church!...Please! Stop!!," shouted the man. The donkey just began to trot faster. He was getting closer and closer to the edge of the cliff.

Finally, in desperation, the man said a prayer..."Please, dear Lord. Please make this donkey stop before I go off the end of this mountain, In Jesus name, AMEN."

The donkey came to an abrupt stop just one step from the edge of the cliff.

"HALLELUJAH!" shouted the man.

Leprechaun Incites Smiles And Giggles

I made my annual appearance as a real leprechaun at the Baker County Pre-K/Kindergarten Center in Macclenny, Florida on St. Patrick's Day 2010.  The kids and I had a great time together.  I read the book "The Night Before St. Patrick's Day" by Natasha Wing for almost every child in the school during four sessions.

After leaving the school, the leprechaun was off to the Baker County Council on Aging for a lunch-time St. Patrick's Day party.  The event featured a birthday gala for Mrs. Hilda Johnson, celebrating her 95th birthday on March 17th.  She was quite surprised to have a leprechaun show-up for her special day.

The day's activities drew to a close with an appearance in three 5th grade classrooms at Keller Intermediate School.  The leprechaun read to the students and answered numerous questions about the wee-ones of Irish folklore.  Of course, the leprechaun hoped to dispel vicious rumors about the activities of those that have leprechaunism (is that a word?)

Photos from the day's activities are viewable in the Leprechaun 2010 photo gallery.

Leprechaun Returns On Wednesday

A "real, live" leprechaun will again make an appearance at Baker County Pre-k/Kindergarten Center in Macclenny, Florida for St. Patrick's Day.  He will be reading a cool leprechaun story to the children.

Florida Times-Union photojournalist Jon M. Fletcher "captured" an interview with the Leprechaun last year and you can view it below.
