Pecans In The Cemetery
On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree just inside the cemetery fence.
One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts.
'One for you, one for me, one for you, one for me,' said one boy.
Several dropped and rolled down toward the fence.
Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle.
As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate.
Sure enough, he heard, 'One for you, one for me, one for you, one for me...'
He just knew what it was.
He jumped back on his bike and rode off.
Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along..
'Come here quick,' said the boy, 'you won't believe what I heard!
Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls!'
The man said, 'Beat it kid, can't you see it's hard for me to walk.'
When the boy insisted though, the man hobbled slowly to the cemetery.
Standing by the fence they heard, 'One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me.'
The old man whispered, 'Boy, you've been tellin' me the truth.
Let's see if we can see the Lord...
Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, yet were still unable to see anything.
The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of the Lord.
At last they heard, 'One for you, one for me.
Now... let's go get those nuts by the fence and we'll be done....
They say the old man had the lead for a good half-mile, before the kid on the bike passed him.
*** HAVE A GREAT DAY ***

Pretty awesome picture! By the way, tell your hubby that if beauty was measured in bricks, you would be the Great Wall of China!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

Yea I heard from my favorite person! Thanks for your kind wishes and I wish you the same over the holidays.
When I saw you were not active on the site, I nearly panicked from fear that something had happened. Thus, I have been saying some prayers for you and hubby.
God Bless you soooooo very much from your ever eternal buddy!
