My lovely angel wife Sharon found this…….Being from Minnesota and my Grandma Caraway’s first name is Lena…… that means extra fun here for me and I for you, I hope and pray! …….I pray it brightens your day in our Lord with good clean humor…….Laughter is good for the heart and soul!

 A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22


Ole lived across the Minnesota River from Clarence Bunsen, whom he didn’t like at all.  They were yelling across the river at each other all the time.

Ole would yell to Clarence, “If I had a vay to cross dis river, I’d come ofver dere an beat you up good, yeah sure ya betcha by golly!”

This went on for years. Finally, the state built a bridge across the river right there by their houses.

Ole’s wife, Lena , says, “Now iss yer chance, Ole. Vhy doncha go over dere and beat up dat Clarence like you said you vud?”

Ole replied, “OK, by yimminy, I tink I vill do yust dat!”

Ole started for the bridge, but he saw a sign on the bridge and stopped to read it, then turned around and came back home.

Lena asked, “Vhy did you come back?”

Ole said, ” Lena , I tink I changed my mind ’bout beatin’ up  dat Clarence. You know, vhen I yell at him from across da  river he don’t look so big. But dey put a sign on da bridge
dat says “Clearence is 13 ft. 6 In.”


Better a Dry Morsel with Quietness
21He who sires a fool does so to his sorrow, And the father of a fool has no joy. 22A joyful heart is good medicine, But a broken spirit dries up the bones. 23A wicked man receives a bribe from the bosom To pervert the ways of justice.…PROVERBS 17:21-23
