Several years ago, Andy was sentenced to prison. During his stay, he
along well with the guards and all his fellow inmates. The warden saw
deep down, Andy was a good person and made arrangements for Andy to
trade while doing his time.
After 3 years, Andy was recognized
as one of the best carpenters in the
local area. Often he would be given a
weekend pass to do odd jobs for the
citizens of the community, and he always
reported back to prison before
Sunday night was over.
The warden was
thinking of remodelling his kitchen and in fact had done much
of the work
himself. But he lacked the skills to build a set of kitchen
cupboards and a
large counter top which he had promised his wife. So he
called Andy into his
office and asked him to complete the job for him. But,
alas, Andy refused. He
told the warden, ''Gosh, I'd really like to help you
but counter fitting is
what got me into prison in the first place.''

The Age of Reason
I took my two sons, ages seven
and five, to the playground at our
local park. My seven year old was very
proud that he was able to read
to his brother the sign with all the rules
posted for the playground.
"1. Do not jump on the merry-go-round when in
"2. Go down the slide while sitting only."
"3. Only one child on
a swing at a time."
There were about twenty rules and the boys promised
to obey them

watch. They said that they were too old to be watched and
friends would tease them calling them babies if I stayed.

He took it

wizened old Chinaman.
The tourist quickly pulled out $12. "Forget that!
I'll just take the rat,

As he walked away
from the shop carrying his bronze rat, the tourist
noticed that a few real
rats had crawled out of the alleys and sewers and had begun following him down

rats behind him had grown to hundreds, and they began squealing. Sweating now,

rats now numbered in the MILLIONS,
