From a first time blogger, thoughts about life from an American missionary now living in the US after years in Russia and doing a lot of back and forth. Family stuff, Christian content, sports innuendo and lots of quotes from good books.

2 Great Stories From Involving My Sister In Law My Nephews (mild language warning but absolutely innocent)

From my sister in law, Kara, in TX:

On Fridays we go to the chiropractor first thing in the morning and afterwards we go to Chick-fil-A for breakfast. Well, today when I went into the bathroom, I met a VERY tall lady in there. She liked the complimentary lotion so much that she was putting it all over her. As we got to talking, she offered me some of the lotion and said “it isn’t mine, it was in here”. So, I told her that my husband (who is the Operator and my brother, Philip Browne. rb) put it in here for people to use. When she heard that she told me she was from College Park, Georgia. Well, of course I had to let her meet Phil. So, I took her over to meet Phil and just before I did, she motioned to her husband to come over too. Her husband turned out to be a VERY nice midget! Now, not only was he a midget, but he was wearing a very colorful shirt, a Jamaican hat and had the biggest go-tee I have ever seen! We had a wonderful conversation with them and then they headed out. Just as they left Peyton (6 years old) came over to Philip and whispered in his ear, “Daddy, is he from the Chronicles of Narnia?” All we have to say is that we are SO happy that he waited until they left to ask that. Boy, has he ever come a long way!!

Also (this one is even better):

Today, during school I was reading to Wesley and Peyton from The Aesop for Children. I was reading about a donkey that had become VERY proud. In the book they called the donkey an ass. Well, for the first time ever I went ahead and read the story word for word. About half way through the story a man in the story says “Stupid ass! You have become too proud” and of course I am reading it word for word. Just as I say that Wesley stops me and says, “Mom, he really should have just said dumb ass (because we don’t say bad words)”. Then he waited for me to repeat the sentence correctly. And I obediently did!

Classic! Oh the heart of pure young boys.
