Imagine my surprise when I encountered this scene while passing the park on the way to my office this morning! Click to enlarge.

What a Way to Start the Day! While driving to my office this morning, I saw the flashing lights of a patrol car several blocks ahead. As I neared the scene, I saw that two patrol cars had a vehicle stopped across from my office. I entered my office and watched officers administer field sobriety testing to one of the occupants of this vehicle. Ultimately, this woman was handcuffed and taken away in one of the patrol cars. I thought how sad it was that someone would be impaired at 6:45 AM through the use of alcohol or drugs! While driving while impaired is certainly unacceptable and threatening to other motorists, someone being intoxicated at 6:45 AM is truly disturbing. I prayed for the deliverance of this woman from the demons that possessed her.

The Old Man
An old man and woman were married for many years, even though they hated
each other. When they had a confrontation, screaming and yelling could be heard deep into the night.

The old man would shout, "When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!"

Neighbors feared him. They believed he practiced black magic, because of the many strange occurrences that took place in their neighborhood.

The old man liked the fact that he was feared. To everyone's relief, he died of a heart attack when he was 98.

His wife had a closed casket at the wake. After the burial, she went straight to the local bar and began to party, as if there was no tomorrow.

Her neighbors, concerned for her safety, asked, "Aren't you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way up and out of the grave and come back to haunt you for the rest of your life?"

The wife put down her drink and said, "Let him dig. I had him buried upside down."
