The burglar stopped and killed the light. "It's only my imagination," he said, turned on the light again and went back to filling his bag.
Again the voice said, "Jesus is watching you."
"I got to get out of here," he said, and turned on the light and went back to work loading loot into the sack.
"Jesus is watching you," said the voice.
The burglar swept the room with the light beam until it fell on a bird on a perch. "What's your name?" demanded the burglar?
"Moses," said the bird.
"What idiot would name a bird Moses?" asked the burglar.
"The same idiot who named the rottweiler Jesus," said the bird.
Speaking of rottweilers….
NICE DOGGY … To the man who wrote about the three rottweilers in the police officer's yard, I want to thank him for telling everybody where the officer lives. Doesn't he know he put the officer and his family at risk? The police officer knows the consequences if his dogs cause harm to anybody.
All dog owners are responsible for their dogs' action, whether it's a poodle, a Chihuahua or a rottweiler. — Another Cop, El Centro
There's no doubt about it, a Chihuahua will bite you but you'll survive it without serious damage. We're not so sure you'll survive if you tangle with three big rottweilers.
QUESTION: We draw welfare. Since we never have much money, I have always made Easter baskets for my children, a baby, a 5-year-old and a 6-year-old. This year it was a choice of buying the materials or paying the electric bill. I paid the electric bill.
Easter falls on the last day of the month. I know you help other people, but do you think you could help us get baskets for our children. — Depressed Mom, El Centro
You made a good choice when you paid the electric bill instead of buying the materials for the baskets. Baskets are nice but lights and warmth are essential.
Most welfare families will be facing a bleak Easter weekend. Now would be a good time to spread around some candy eggs. If you don't know any struggling young families, give this mom a call at 353-9020.
After all, what's Easter without a basket. Happy holiday!
