There is an interesting story about a husband and wife driving down a highway.
The wife saw the husband looking past her into the woods .
A tear came down his cheek.

She wanted to know why he was crying.

He told her he remembered what his Dad, who passed away now,
told him a long time ago about Pine trees.
He was 8 years old, it was spring and they went fishing.

His Dad said Pine trees know when it's Easter.

Two weeks before Easter, the new shoots begin to grow.
The tallest shoot will branch off and form a cross just weeks before Easter.

It was one week before Easter .
The wife looked out the window and saw what her husband saw.

The spruce trees were full of yellow shoots and they were
full of crosses.

It is amazing what effect parents have on their children.
A small thing a parent tells a child, stays with him and
memories emerge when least expected.

Crosses you bear and pass in life's journey appear everywhere and cannot be escaped.

It brought the husband and wife closer, to share an intimate moment from the past,
that will repeat over and over again every Easter, no matter what a country's political
agenda is.

Man: "How do you like your eggs in the morning?"

Woman: "Unfertilized."
The elephant asked the camel: "Why do you have your breasts on your back?"

The camel clearly irritated by the outrage of modesty replies: "What a silly question from someone who has a dick on his face."

you are my everything -

A nice story again.

And the concersation between the camel and the elephant is lovely too.

Akelamalu: People are surrounded by natures messages. One has only to take a look.

Peter: Some jokes are gross but still funny.
