More Catholic Humor, or, Yes, I have been gone a long time!

I'll catch up later, but I wanted to post this:

Little David, who was Jewish, was failing math. His parents tried everything: Tutors, mentors, flash cards, special learning centers...and nothing helped.

As a last resort, someone told them to try a Catholic school. "Those nuns are tough," they said.

David was soon enrolled at St. Mary's. After school on the very first day, David ran through the door and straight to his room, without even kissing his mother hello. He started studying furiously...books and papers spread out over his room. Right after dinner, he ran upstairs, without mentioning TV, and hit the books harder than ever before. His parents were amazed!

This behavior continued for weeks....until report card day arrived. David quietly laid the envelope on the table, and went to his room.

With great trepidation, his mother opened the report. David had gotten an A in math! She ran up to his room; threw her arms around him;and asked, "David honey, how did this happen? Was it the nuns?"

"No!",said David. "On the first day of school, when I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they weren't fooling around."

What up?

Well, not much on this blog, but plenty here at home. Since my last post, we've moved to a new house (new to us), ripped out the yard (complete with two bronze fountains, and a free-standing four-car garage), and now we're in the middle of re-construction on the inside of the house. I've been busy. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed right now, but I still think of things to vent about on the blog. So, no, I haven't abandoned it, I'm just putting a lot of things on the back burner right now. Here's a pic of the front of the house before:

Here's what it looks like now:

Just wait 'till I show you the work on the back yard!!!
