Then Jesus said to his disciples,
"If anyone would come after me, he must first deny himself and
take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life
will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.
( Matt. 16:24 )
Cow in a Fish Pond
Late one night a patron was in the Chatterbox and outside
was his pick-up truck, with a cow in the back. Some
ornery boys came by and let the tailgate down.
The cow jumped out, and was running up and down the
street with a bunch of kids, even some of our
kids, and a bunch of fellows from the
Chatterbox chasing it. It went from
the street, to the alley behind our
house into the playground.
Finally, the cow ended up in our fish pond, nearly scared
to death. The bottom of the pond was made of
painted concrete and it was very slick! The
cow couldn't get any traction and no
matter how hard it tried, it couldn't
get out of the water!
The cow's owner finally brought his pick-up truck to the
alley and backed it up to the fishpond. It took about
ten men to lift that cow into the truck. The
owner left immediately. Whew!!
