Publisher Goes Wild
Before Spring Brake, Jerry Hinkle was admonishing all the ladies at DWU not to appear in any videos. His good friend, Mustang told him that he'd better do the same. Well, Jerry hasn't exactly been flashing his nether regions for the camera, but he did go to Cabela's. He did this because he says that it's been awhile since he's seen any livestock. Nobody here at the home office had the heart to tell him all those animals were dead.
Going to Cabela's is one thing, but Jerry went wild with the credit card. He bought the last pair of Buffalo skin gloves for $35. He also had dinner at the Outfitter's Cafe. We won't say how much he spent, but it was less then the gloves. You wouldn't believe how much they wanted for an ostrich sandwich. Jerry is thinking about going back for the breakfast buffet. Take it easy, Bub! If you make a habit out of this people will want you to take them along.
South Dakota Songbook
"Every Time I Breathe"
by Big Daddy Weave
The first time I heard Amy Price
sing this song, it became one of
my all time favorites.
Big Daddy weave is OK too!
This is for anyone who
I am sure all of heaven's heard me cry
As I tell You all the reasons why
This life is just too hard
But day by day
I'm finding everything I need
And everything that You are
Every time I breathe You seem a little bit closer
I never want to leave
I want to stay in Your warm embrace
Oh basking in the glory shining from
And every time I get another glimpse of Your heart
I realize it's true
That You are so marvelous God
And I am so in love with You
Now how could I after knowing One so great
Respond to You in any way
That's less than all I have to give
But by Your grace I want to love
You not with what I say
In a way that my life is lived
Wrapped in Your mercy I want to live and never leave
I am held by how humble
Yet overwhelmed by Your majesty
Captured by grace and now I'm finding
I am free
You are marvelous God
And knowing You is everything
Eating for Charity
Oh what our Publisher does for the Church! FUMC of Mitchell had a fundraiser tonight at the local Pizza Hut. If one presents the coupon to the server or the delivery driver, the Senior High Youth of FUMC get 20% of the take from one's order. Jerry Hinkle would have been farther ahead just to give the Youth Group $5. But where's the fun in that?
As it happens, When Jerry walked in by himself, he was given the best booth in the house. We know this because even though Jerry brought his homework with him he only had time to read two pages. Jerry had two servers and the manager filling him up. He hopes the generous tip is split between the three of them. Jerry was please to find out from some of his church friends that they were all getting that "Royal Treatment" kind of service. They even called Jerry by name like they knew him. Oh wait! They do know him. In fact, they've known him since September. Still, it was nice. Jerry should go back as a customer again sometime and bring a friend with him. Someone that he wants to impress.North of 40:My anti-hero
by Red Green
When I was growing up, movies and television provided us with a lot of heroes. Men who always did the right thing at the right time. Men who were honest and true and fought for justice and "the American way." These were ideals, and it's good to have someone like that to look up to, someone who gives you a goal to strive for. However, when we fall short of the mark and pale by comparison with these icons, that can make us look bad, especially in the eyes of our wives. That's when you need to go the other way. You need to introduce the anti-hero into your spouse's life. Let her see someone on television who's way worse than you are. Someone who will make your indiscretion seem harmlessly trivial. If you're in minor trouble, a couple of episodes of "Judge Judy" might do it. If you're in the deep stuff, you may have to watch "Cops" or even "America's Most Wanted." All you need to do is to expose your wife to three men who are worse than you, and you're off the hook. If that can't be done, maybe it's time to turn yourself in.
