We went to New Hope, MN on Saturday, Sept. 10 and returned on Tuesday the 13. We went up there to visit Kathie and Marc and their family and meet my youngest and newest great grand- daughter. We also met her mum for the first time. She is very pretty and seems to fit right into the family. On Sunday, we went to their Lutheran Church. Kathie said we would like their minister, and we did. We were each given a blue ribbon bow (for 9/11) to pin on our outfits. The Governor and faith leaders were also meeting on the steps of the State Capitol to remember 9/11 in the afternoon, Anyhow, we had a great time. When Kathie tells me over the phone about Ava, I can now picture as to what she's talking about. On the Lighter Side - To protect his cattle from hunters, Jack painted "C O W" in huge letters on each animal. "Why didn't you paint a different sign on your bull?" A neighbor asked. Jack shrugged. "Why confuse a city slicker with details." Food for Thought- 1 John 3:1 See what kind of love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God, and so we are. I do not know who wrote l~[. the following paragraph. It would seem to give a voice to some points that have been neglected because we have allowed ourselves to be distracted from truth. Common sense is not all that common it is howeveI, invaluable. Complexity can be a cover for deception, simplicity can be revealing, au[;~ See what you think. "Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cul- tivated such valuable lessons as: -Knowing when to come in out of the rain; " - Why the early bird gets the worm; - Life isn't always fag; - And maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies, don't spend more than you can earn and adults, not children, are in charge. His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well intentioned, but overbearing regulations, were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouth- wash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Tait's Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they them- selves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get pareiatal consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a Thinkin' student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live; as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to real- ize that a steaming cup-of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settle- ment. Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife Discretion, his daughter Responsibility, and his son, Reason. 4 stepbrothers survive him: I Know My Rights, I" Want It Now, Someone Else Is To Blame, I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. It's not unusual at all to hear the words, "I have to get a new roof". The hailstorm changed the usual greeting of "How's the weather?" to "How's your roof?" The Farmers Bank roof was being replaced.., way up there. The new roof will be insu- lated steel.
