MOFB’s “Cut to the Chase” : A correction, one year later

by Denny Banister

I shared a story with you last year called "The Real Uncle Sam." In the story I mentioned Samuel Wilson was the real person Uncle Sam was modeled after. I also mentioned he was born in 1776, that he was the son of a Minuteman, and that he served in the Revolutionary War as a messenger and service boy for the Army of the colonies.

Cutting corners

 

by Dr. Don Kuehle, United Methodist, Retired, Jackson, Mo.

Our son was living in an apartment in town. One day he announced: "I got a good deal on a house-trailer; I’d like to move it out to the farm."

Great news! Good idea! Only one slight problem – the trailer was 80 feet long; the lane leading into the farmstead was narrow, with several sharp s-curves! Manuvering the house-trailer around

These figures, compiled by the Audit Bureau of Circulations, but not

Family Daze: Clothes make the mom

by Debbie Farmer

For a time, after having children, the only time I was thoroughly clean, was on my way from the shower to the bathroom door. In spite of taking numerous precautions, I always ended up with whatever my kids ate, touched or sneezed, stuck somewhere on my body or my wardrobe.

The Coonridge Digest: You know the odds

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from the Ridge.

I’ve never tried my hand at the Las Vegas gaming tables, figuring that if the Nevada town could build casinos of gold then they must know something about their odds of winning. Nor have I ever purchased a lottery ticket. Every time I hear that the chances of getting hit by lightning 14 times are greater than winning the Lotto, I head
