Grandma visits Jesus

My grandmother, my kids' great grandmother, came to visit yesterday. She's 82, but still full of life and has a busier schedule than most 25-year-olds I know.

She called on Friday and asked to come visit to her great-grandchildren. I'm happy to say, my kids absolutely love her.

Before she arrived I was getting the kids excited. My son Jason had painted a picture of a camel and wanted me to have it. I told him he might want to give the painting to Grandma, because she has seen a real camel. He seemed very surprised, so I told him he should ask Grandma about all the amazing trips she has taken. I told him he she has traveled all over the world.

"She even has seen where Jesus lived." I told him.

"But Jesus lives in heaven." He said, puzzled.

"But when Jesus was born, he lived on earth, and was born in a place we now call Israel. Grandma visited Israel last year. You should ask her all about it." I replied.

He agreed that would be a good idea.

Grandma arrived, hugs and kisses were swapped. We had a nice lunch, then Jason remembered what he had wanted to ask grandma.

And he said... "Grandma, Papa told me you're going to see Jesus soon."

Needless to say, Grandma was surprised to hear about her imminent demise.

My wife helped Jason rephrase, and Grandma was relieved to hear that we had been talking about her behind her back. And she told Jason all about Israel.

Friday Funnies: Funny Retail Signs

Well, it's Friday so maybe you're planning to do a little shopping tonight. Watch carefully, and you might find some entertaining retail signage such as these. Here's a collection of funny retail signs from around the globe, mostly from the good old USA.

If you're planning to stay overnight, make sure you have a shilling and a few extra pence if you need to stable your horse. Here are the Rules of Inn.

After Christmas wrapping paper goes on sale, and so does Rapping paper, apparently.

Special offers are everywhere! You can get two drinks for the price of two! Don't worry, after four you won't notice how much you're spending anyhow.

Sometimes no caption is necessary.

But I'm so hot.  I'm sure everyone inside doesn't mind looking at me.

I didn't even bother going inside.  Clearly I would violate several of these store rules.

This was seen on a Dairy Queen drive through.  I always keep my secret ice cream money in my underwear.

How United Airlines Should Have Handled the Situation

United Airlines is under fire for a viral video that shows them removing a passenger forcibly from an airplane bound for Louisville Kentucky.
Here are the bullets:

The plane was already loaded and full.The airline needed to fly four employees to Louisville Kentucky on the plane. The employees needed to go to prevent another plane from departing late.The airline offered $800 in compensation to the first four people who would volunteer to give up their seats. No one took the offer.The airline went to a lottery, drawing for people at random. These four people were asked to leave the plane, and they would receive the compensation.One of the passengers refused to leave. It's unclear how things escalated, however he was removed by security officers. Reports are conflicting about whether the officers were police officers, TSA workers, or airline staff.The gentleman was literally physically dragged down the aisle receiving while screaming in protest and physically abused in the process.Ap…
