"A Long Run for a Short Slide"

A baseball term referring to a baserunner attempting to get to another base or usually two or three and the long run ends with a very short slide, usually being called out. We use that term in Anesthesia and I'm sure others also using that term.

Last Sunday's worship service featured a "story teller" as the sermon. Most of the program was his attempt to be funny but he finally got around to a brief moment of serious talk and blessing. I go to worship and be fed, not to hear someone trying to make me laugh.

Adult services should feed me and to allow me to focus on God's Gifts! Guess I'm looking for a short run with a long slide.

"Swing and Sway with Sammy Kay"

This was the radio program title for this wonderful big-band group in the 1940's. Great music! I thought of this at a recent worship service when the CW Leader played the Marvin Gay-James Taylor song "How Sweet it is....."changing the words to "being loved by you". A woman in the front row stood up and performed in a manner which brought the Sammy Kay program to my mind. I love big-band music, swing and jazz music but I have a problem with the event that spoiled my worship. Please comment.

"Today is a Gift from God. Untie the ribbon."

Seen today at BBL (better built lives) here in Yakima. I've posted several of their signs. The focus of that firm is to help those with various addictions by providing work and lodging. They have an used car lot, window tinting, auto detailing as well as auto repairs. They change their readerboard every day on both sides so they get a lot of good exposure.
