Fred's Funnies
"Never Argue with Children"
Little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. Teacher explained that even though the whale is a very large mammal, the throat is small and would be unable to swallow a man. Little girl argued that in the Bible Jonah was swallowed by a whale. The rest of the argument pertained to heaven and hell.  Maybe you should ask Fred....
 
President John observed these special occasions:  Barry Abram's "entertaining" birthday and Rick and Lori Anne Tarbell's wedding anniversary!
 
Bil Trodlier introduced our inspirational guest speaker Rudi Harst. Website:  rudiharst.com. Rudi sang and accompanied himself on his guitar with his own original music!
