      When darkness falls in the forest , little Billy became rigid with fear. Even though he had been raised in a hollow log by a family of squirrels, nighttime still brought terror. Later, he would laugh in a real high squeaky voice.

      Abdul was considering the 72 virgins that would attend to his every need as he pulled the rented truck loaded with fertilizer onto the busy boulevard.

      Across the street I found a twenty dollar bill on the sidewalk. I RULE!!!!

      The plane was being tossed around like a leaf in the wind. Finally a huge gust from the storm ripped the last engine off the wing of the airliner. The cabin grew deathly quiet as the plane plummeted towards the ground. Shirley leaned back in her seat and thought of how much time she wasted this morning folding the towels. The End.

      A True Story:
      Billy rented a townhouse next to tidy neighbours. Billy liked to leave his garbage all over his front yard. He piled up 20 full garbage bags there over the next 3 months. Cats, dogs, mice and cockroaches came. The landlord sent him a letter. He put the garbage in the trash cans. Billy piled up 15 more full garbage bags on his front yard during the next 2 months. The landlord sent him a letter. Billy put the garbage in the trash cans. Billy piled up 10 more full garbage bags on his front yard during the next month. The landlord sent him another letter. Billy put all his trash and some of his stuff in the garbage cans and a truck came for the rest of it. Billy doesn’t live there anymore. THE END.

      Betsy and Gill were at the supermarket for their weekly shopping trip. This was like a date for them. They had a few minutes to talk with each other without the children interrupting.

      Gill asks, “Do we need more laundry detergent?”

      Betsy answers, “I think we have enough to last till next week.”

      Gill says, “Why don’t we pick some up anyway? It’s not like the world is going to end and we aren’t going to use it.”

      Later that evening, the world ended and Betsy and Gill were stuck with laundry detergent they will never ever use.

      The End.

      The plastic berry pails thumped on the handlebars of the bicycle as Alice climbed the path to the saskatoon bushes. Suddenly a doe scrambled hastily through the meadow grass and flashed past the trees and beyond the fence. The bicycle continued along the path till it came to the little fawn, lying dead with its neck twisted and bitten. The leaves of the bushes nearby rustled.

      Alec’s heart pounded; it had always been his ambition to be a member of a secret society, and tonight was his initiation. Insights would be revealed, ancient mysteries laid bare. He stood on the dais, black cloak about his shoulders, curved blade held aloft in his right hand, his left holding back the goat’s head. At that moment, the president of the Rotary Club informed Alec that he could simply take his seat.

      The green duffel bag tugged a little tear when it got caught on the nail. As the man walked, the bag jostled about and the tear became a rip. His booty of stolen hybrid corn seeds began to fall out. The hybrid corn seed was evidently tasty. No criminal charges were ever filed as the animal kingdom balanced the scales of justice.

      God saw that the wickedness of the Earth was very great.
      God sent Jesus Christ to be the Saviour of the world.
      Jesus Christ came to the Earth, lived a perfect life, and suffered and died for the atonement of sinners.
      Jesus Christ rose from the dead by the mighty power of God.
      He ascended into heaven, where He is now at the right hand of God Almighty.
      From hence, He shall come to judge the living and the dead, and to reign over all.
      Even so, come Lord Jesus!

      It was tough for Willy; first an egg, then a worm (some close calls there), then a pupae, now an emerging adult. But the radioactive fallout from Japan had given Willy something unusual…super powers.
      Yup…Willy could read.
      So it wasn’t long before he found the buffer zone signs that said: “No Pesticides/Herbicides on this land”. And Willy entered paradise.
      However, due to the fact that the birds had also entered paradise, Willy had a short lifespan there. But he was happy up till the moment the robin saw him.

      Two squirrels made the journey from tree to tree across the yard. By traveling in this manner they artfully dodged the dogs that hounded them on the ground. As they scurried across the newly shingled roof to their usual entry point in the roof they dashed inside the attic. Little did they know, a black snake had just entered the same hole. After a titanic struggle, the forces of nature once again took their course.

      You can’t have your squirrel and eat it too

      Edna’s phone-line had been dead for a week, so she made the necessary arrangements (via the neighbour’s phone) to have it serviced on Tuesday. She later double-checked the date with the company. The serviceman arrived early Monday morning. It took him all morning to install new phone lines in the backyard. While he was still out there, Edna’s phone rang. It was a voice-message from the phone company, reminding her that a serviceman would be there Tuesday to fix her phone, and to be sure to be home, or have someone over the age of 18 there.
      Edna gently hung up the phone, baffled.

      Edna thought that she’d spend her weekend just sleeping. But after every few hours, she’d wake up needing to go to the bathroom. So as Nature dictated her sleeping/waking activities, she decided to trick her mind into thinking of it as a ‘pacer’ such as the marathon swimmers use. However, the thought of water made her go to the bathroom even more often.

      In addition to GBS/CIDP, Edna had asthma.  Over the years, many kind well-wishers had given her beautiful candles for a Christmas gift, which she’d carefully saved in her gift drawer.  Christmas was coming soon, but times were hard now, money was tight, and it was too expensive to give gifts. Until she opened that gift drawer, and started wrapping!
