Cold Water Cleaning
John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural
area of Georgia.
After spending a great evening chatting the night away, John's
grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast. However, John
noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather
asking, "Are these plates clean?"
His grandfather replied, "They're as clean as cold water can get them.
Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!"
For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again, John was concerned
about the plates as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge
that looked like dried egg and asked, "Are you sure these plates are
Without looking up the old man said, "I told you before, Sonny, those
dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don't you fret, I don't
want to hear another word about it!"
Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was
leaving, his grandfather's dog started to growl, and wouldn't let him pass.
John yelled and said, "Grandfather, your dog won't let me get to my car".
Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching
on TV the old man shouted ...
"COLDWATER, GO LAY DOWN
The CEO of a Vacuum Cleaner company was impatient with the poor job his salespeople were doing, so one
day he decided to do the job himself.
"After all!" he thought. "I AM the CEO!"
He pulled up to a very old house in his Mercedes Benz and knocked on the door. A little old barefoot man
wearing overalls answered the knock on the door, only to be confronted by the very well dressed and
dignified CEO in a $2,000 navy blue pin-striped business suit, a Hermes silk tie, a starched white shirt with
monogrammed cuff links, $700 shoes polished like black mirrors, and carrying a vacuum cleaner.
"Good morning," said the impeccably groomed CEO. "If I could take a couple minutes of your time, I would
like to demonstrate the very latest in high-powered vacuum cleaners."
"Get lost, Mister fancy suit!" said the old man. "I haven't got any money" and he proceeded to close the
Quick as a flash, the CEO wedged his perfectly polished shoe in the door and pushed it wide open.
"Don't be too hasty!" he said. "Not until you have at least seen my demonstration."
The old man again told him to get lost. And with that, the CEO emptied a bucket of mud all over his hallway
"If this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of this mess from your carpet, sir, I will personally eat
the remainder. I am the CEO! You have my GUARANTEE!"
"I got a better idea" said the old man, "If you don't clean it all up, I'll swap those fancy clothes of yours fer
my overalls. Your nice suit, your tie, your shoes, everything!"
"Fine, sir!" said the CEO confidently, with a condescending smile. "I'll give you my clothes!"
"Lemme ask you something', pal...Where are you going' when you leave here?"
The CEO answered very confidently: "To a VERY important conference! WHY?"
"Will they let you in if yer barefoot?" said the old man.
"Of course not!" said the CEO.
"How much did you pay for those socks you've got on?" asked the old man.
"Thirty dollars" said the bewildered CEO. "Why?"
"I ain't never worn thirty dollar socks before!" said the old man. "It will be kinda hard for you to wear
overalls to work, I guess!" said the old man.
"WHAT?!" said the confused CEO.
"And will you show how me to tie a necktie?" said the old man...
One hour later, the door of the apartment opened, and the CEO carefully looked out. Seeing that no one
was around, his foot appeared.
A bare foot.
He stepped out into the hallway - dressed now only in overalls and bare feet. His expensive executive suit
and tie had vanished, along with his confidence and dignity.
The old man watched him run away to his car with a grin, admiring the expensive pinstriped suit and silk tie
he had just acquired. He then sat down and pulled on the CEO's thirty dollar socks and gleaming shoes.
"Now I gotta see about payin' that electric bill..."

Last summer, my husband, took me camping
for the first time. At every opportunity, he
passed along outdoor-survival lore. One
day we got lost hiking in the deep woods.
He tried the usual tactics to determine
direction -- moss on the trees (there was
none), direction of the sun (it was an
overcast day), etc., etc.
Just as I was beginning to panic, he spotted
a small cabin off in the distance. He pulled
out his binoculars, studied the cabin,
turned and led us right back to our camp.
"That was terrific," I said. "How did you do
it?" "Simple," he replied. "In this part of the
country all the TV satellite dishes p

A man is driving up a steep, narrow mountain
road. A woman is driving down the same road.
As they pass each other, the woman leans out
of the window and yells "PIG!!"
The man immediately leans out of his window
and replies, "WITCH!!"
They each continue on their way, and as the
man rounds the next corner, he crashes into
a pig in the middle of the road.
If men would only listen.

One bright, beautiful Sunday morning, everyone in the
tiny town wakes up early and goes to the local church.
Before the service starts, the townspeople sit in their
pews and talk about their lives, their families, etc.
Suddenly, at the altar, Satan appears!! Everyone starts
screaming and running for the front entrance, trampling
each other in their determined efforts to get away from
Soon, everyone is evacuated from the church except for
one man, who sits calmly in his pew, seemingly oblivious
to the fact that God's ultimate enemy is in his presence.
This confuses Satan a bit.
Satan walks up to the man and says, "Hey, don't you
know who I am?"
The man says, "Yep, sure do."
Satan says, "Well, aren't you afraid of me?"
The man says, "Nope, sure ain't."
Satan, perturbed, says, "And why aren't you afraid of

One Sunday morning when my son was about 5, we
were attending church in our community. It was
common for the preacher to invite the children to the
front of the church and have a small lesson before
beginning the sermon. He would bring in an item they
could find around the house and relate it to a teaching
from the Bible.
This particular morning, the visual aid for his lesson
was a smoke detector. He asked the children if anyone
knew what it meant when an alarm sounded from the

A little boy wanted 100 dollars badly and
prayed for two weeks but nothing happened.

The President was so impressed, touched,

and sat down to write a thank-you note to

me the money. However, I noticed that for
