(each one the size of my thumb-nail), on a pad of cotton in the box left from the year before. They were so cute that our kids wanted to keep them for pets. For some unknown reason, we didn't keep them. So much for that. They were cute. On the Lighter Side - One time Eli Mac woke up with excruciating pain in her back so her husband took her a heating pad, and her breakfast. (What a husband), and told her to stay in bed. By mid-morn- ing she was feeling much better and a r friend called, needing some one to fill in ence's at a bridge party, so she decided to go. While enjoying bridge, she forgot about her back and also the time, until she saw 1ler her neighbor's husband come home from work. Quickly she jumped up, and grabbed her purse. "Is it that late?" she cried. "I've got to go home and get in bed before my husband gets there." The man sitting next to her sighed, "That" he said, "is always the kind of wife I wanted." Food for Thought - Psalm 8:3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in space.
