The other Sunday morning in Sis’s Sunday School Class at Foster’s Chapel UMC, the teacher asked all the folks in the class what could be done to repay China the $14 trillion that we owe. Everyone in the class gave their opinion as to what could be done to repay the huge debt. When the teacher, Kenneth Hoyt Sanders, asked Sis what she thought, she answered, “Well, I could give a dollar per month out of my Social Security Check until it gets paid off.” The nice teacher told Sis, “Sis, that would be about like giving Kellogg another corn flake!”

Lending And Borrowing
My friend, Dude Palmer over in the Meadowoods Community, tells me never to loan money to a friend. It will make an enemy out of him, and you will probably never see him again. He also says since we owe China $14 trillion, they will not become our enemy, because they hope someday to be repaid.

Someone asked Harold Lloyd “Guitar” Thompson how we could prove that the cow jumped over the moon. His answer was, well, the cow had a motion camera tied to its leg and took a picture. Guitar says come on down to Harris Street on Friday nights to the Horseshoe Band for some good picking and singing.
