If'n Y'all ever owned and loved a dog, you'll enjoy this picture story

My good amiga, Sue Gertson frum down Texas way sent me this great photo story which no descriptive words are necessary.

Ifn y'all noted, everyone is wearing coats and warm garb so it had t'be pretty damn cold there.

Now Sir, on the other side of the coin we have this story. Although this did have a happy ending its the original event that boggles the mind and just piss's ya off....

8 Year old boy suspended from school for drawing a picture of Jesus.

A school superintendent in Taunton, MA has been ordered to apologize to the family of an 8-year-old boy who was sent home from school and ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after drawing a picture of Jesus on a cross.

“The mayor is very upset and angry,” said Todd Castro, assistant to Mayor Charles Crowley told FOX News Radio. “He spoke with the superintendent this morning and is looking for her to make a public apology and a private apology to the family.”

According to the Taunton Daily Gazette, a boy at Maxham Elementary School was instructed to sketch something that reminded him of Christmas. The child had just returned from a visit to the National Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette – so he drew a stick-figure of Jesus on the cross.

Only in Texas...

In a small Texas town there was a "Nativity Scene" that showed great skill
and talent had gone into creating it. One small feature bothered me. The
Three wise men were wearing firemen's helmets.

Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, I left. At a "Quik Stop" on the edge of town, I asked the lady behind the counter about the helmets. She exploded
into a rage, yelling at me,

"You darn Yankees never do read the Bible!" I assured her that I did, but simply couldn't recall anything about firemen in the Bible.

She jerked her Bible from behind the counter and ruffled thru some pages,
And finally jabbed her finger at a passage. Sticking it in my face she said

"See, it says right here, 'The three wise men came from afar.'"
