About me...

Pop the lid on my Mason Jar and meet my family. Jim {Jimma} and I have four kids, Creston (Ashley), Jami (Matt), Brandon and Chance. Our grandkids, Cade, Kirby, Eisley, Beck and Reed bring us more joy than any Mason Jar could ever hold. I am counting my blessings over and over and thanking God for His amazing love and grace.

You would had to have been there...

And there’s no way I can put it into words, where it is half as funny as it was when it happened, but here goes my best shot...

Thursday, several neighbors and I had a meeting scheduled with the Chief of Police to discuss a problem house located a few blocks from our house. There are “dealings” going on all hours of the night at this house and Christina, the lady who lives across the street from the house, is fed up! Not only that, she has had some confrontations with the two brothers who live in the house. Christina had set the meeting up in hopes of finding a solution to help put an end to the problem.

Six of us showed up for the meeting and were escorted to the chief’s conference room. While sitting in the room, I happened to glance at the mantle behind the chief and notice a picture of a young police officer. Since it bore a slight resemblance to the police chief, I figured it was a picture of him when he was much younger and a lot “lighter” if you know what I mean.

We were in a deep discussion with the chief when out of nowhere, interrupting the conversation, Christina blurts out, “Who’s the cute guy in the picture?” All conversation ceased, a look of pride came over the chief’s face and he said, “That’s me.” Christina’s mouth flew open and before she could stop herself she said, “Oh S**T! I didn’t mean to offend you.” Oh my goodness, if the “Oh S**I” wasn’t bad enough, the “I didn’t mean to offend you” was icing on the cake! And, the look on her face was absolutely priceless! The chief quickly recovered, acted as though he never heard her comment, and moved right on with the conversation.

Jim and I are still laughing about Christina’s gaffe and hopefully you got a chuckle reading this. If not, I guess you would just had to have been there!
