Sign on an optometrist's office: If you don't see what you're looking
for, you've come to the right place. (Sandy Sibert)
It was a summer night in 1942 when we landed in a small inlet on the
coast of the Red Sea. Our orders were clear. Dressed as Bedouins we
were to cross the Arabian Desert to meet our contacts near the Nile,
where we were to obtain vital information regarding Rommel's forces.
We were given a map showing each rivulet and creek as we could carry
only a limited amount of water. We had to travel primarily at night
because of the extreme heat. Each time we reached another creek on the
map, we would find only a wadi, totally dry this time of the year. In
spite of extreme thirst and dehydration, we finally staggered to our
assigned destination where we were met by Arab nomads loyal to the
Allied cause. We explained that we had crossed the desert without
water as every river bed was dry. "Of course," we were told. "You went
from one ex-stream to another." (By Stan Kegel)
"I've lost my gold mine!" Tom exclaimed.

A young missionary on his first term in Africa was reading his Bible
in a clearing when a lion came up and laid down beside him. As he
quietly prayed for deliverance, another lion came out of the bush and
laid down by his other side. Convinced that this was a test of his
faith, he returned to reading his Bible. As soon as he did, the two
lions pounced on him and devoured him. Moral: Don't try to read
between the lions.
Island: Every time I try the trampoline, ISLAND on my butt. (Cynthia
The composition teacher asked the class to write about an unusual
event that happened during the past week. Little Johnny got up and

said the boy. "He stopped yelling for help yesterday."
