A young and successful
executive was traveling down a neighborhood street,
going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar.. He was
watching for kids darting out from between parked
cars and slowed down when he thought he saw
As his car passed, no children appeared.
Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door!
He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to
the spot where the brick had been thrown.

car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up
against a parked car shouting,
'What was that all about and who are you? Just what
the heck are you doing? That's a new car and that
brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why

walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very

Gosh, I am jealous of you!
I wish I will have children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren one day, just like you. I want to be surrounded by them, doesn't matter if they would overcrowded me sometimes. It would really be awesome.
Love Texas! I was there a few months ago. Green, cliff, mountains etc....gosh. I don't have all these to adore at the place where I am at (outside USA). My dream is to move there someday!
Thanks for offering us a shoulder to cry one! Have a wonderful "family" day!
