Bad News: they're empty
As for the video gem, it's located at the bottom of the page. It feaures comedian/ventriloquist Jeff Dunham's character "Achmed the Dead Terrorist". It's not pc and there is language, so it may not be suitable for everyone. For the rest of us ~~ enjoy!

Now that he's home, grandparents are taking turns staying at the house with him. Remember, his Mom died from lung cancer last Thankskgiving, so Chris has to work. Anyway, they have to stay with him because apparently his judgement is not very well due to his head trauma. I have no idea what this means for his ability to graduate HS this year. He also had a promising catering business that was doing extremely well.
SO.......that's all I know today. We thank you all for your continued prayers. Have a happy turkey day and remember to give thanks for all you have. Hug someone you haven't hugged in awhile -- you know, that impossible in-law, meddling aunt, obnoxious cousin who loves to remind you of that embarrasing time when...... Well I'm sure you get the idea. I know we're thankful that Nick is still with us.

We appreciate your continued prayers for his recovery and for the families who lost their children.

My nephew, age 17, was in a terrible auto accident this past Saturday night. He was with 5 other friends, all seniors in high school. Three, including the driver, were pronounced dead at the scene, one died later at the hospital. Another boy and my nephew are in the hospital. My nephew has a punctured lung, broken ribs, 2 broken cheek bones, and a broken shoulder blade.
I ask that you pray for the families who have lost their children. And please pray for healing for my nephew and his friend. This will be a long hard recovery for all involved.

Why females should avoid a girls night out after they are married...
Recently I was invited out for a night with the 'girls.' I told my husband that I would be home by midnight, 'I promise!' Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down very easily. Around 3 a.m., a bit tipsy, I headed for home.
Just as I made it through the door, the cuckoo clock in the hallway started up and cuckooed three times. Quickly, realizing my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed another nine times. I was really proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted solution in order to escape a possible conflict with him. (Even rather impaired... three cuckoos plus nine cuckoos totals 12 cuckoos--MIDNIGHT!)
The next morning my husband asked me what time I got in, and I told him 'MIDNIGHT.' He didn't seem upset in the least. Whew, I got away with that one! Then he said 'We need a new cuckoo clock.' When I asked him why, he said, 'Well, last night our clock cuckooed three times, then said, 'oh, shit.' Cuckooed four more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another three times, giggled, cuckooed twice more, and then tripped over the coffee table and farted.

So he in now in his own yard with his brother who I'm sure is very happy to see him. Apparently he got out of his yard on Tuesday. No wonder he was so hungry and thirsty when we found him on Wednesday!

Here's her foot. It may be difficult to see, but there's bruising between the 1st and 2nd knuckles on her 2nd toe and on the top of her toe. No really, it's there!
