This Night Owl Blog has given so much!
It is a fun place, we don't bash and we have fun being "tedious"!
We offer advice, give love, lots of free food and an open forum which can be about anything that is important, thought provoking or just plain silly.
And sometimes we just March (some to different drummers, but all together). :)
It is not about a single person, it is about all the people on any given day blended together.....Goldie!
The day finally
arrived..Forrest Gump dies and goes toHeaven. He is atthe Pearly Gates, met by St. Peter
himself. However, the
gates are closed,and Forrest approaches the
gatekeeper. St. Peter said, 'Well, Forrest,it is certainly good to see you.We have heard a lot
about you. I musttell you, though, that the place is filling up fast,
and we have been administering an entrance examination
for everyone. The test is
short, but you have topass it before you can get into
Heaven.' Forrest responds, 'It sure isgood to be here, St. Peter, sir.But
nobody ever told me about any entranceexam. I sure hope that the test ain't too
hard. Life was a big enough testas it was.' St. Peter continued, 'Yes, Iknow, Forrest, but the test is only three
questions. First: What two days of the weekbegin with the letter T? Second: How many seconds are there in a
year? Third: What is God's first name?' Forrest leaves to think the
questionsover. He returns the next day and sees St. Peter,
who waves him up, andsays, 'Now that you have had a chance to think the
questions over,tell me your answers.' Forrest replied, 'Well,
thefirst one -- which two days in the week begins with
the letter 'T'?Shucks, that one is easy.That
would be Today and Tomorrow.' The Saint's eyes opened wide andhe exclaimed, 'Forrest, that is not what I was
thinking, but you dohave a point, and I guess I did not specify, so I
will give you creditfor that answer.How
about the next one?' asked St. Peter. 'How many seconds in a year?Now that one is harder,' replied Forrest, 'but I
thunk and thunk aboutthat, and I guess the only answer can be
twelve.' Astounded, St. Peter said,
'Twelve?Twelve? Forrest, how in
Heaven's name could you come up with twelve
seconds in a year?' Forrest replied, 'Shucks,
there'sgot to be twelve: January 2nd, February 2nd, March
2nd.... ' 'Hold it,' interrupts St.Peter.'I see where you are going with this, and I
see your point,though that was not quite what I had in mind....but
I will have to giveyou credit for that one, too. Let
us go on with the third and final question.Can you tell me God's first name'? 'Sure,' Forrest replied,'it's Andy.' 'Andy?' exclaimed an exasperatedand frustrated St Peter. 'Ok, I can understand how youcame up with your answers to my first two questions,
but just how in theworld did you come up with the name Andy as the
first name of God?' 'Shucks, that was the easiestone of all,' Forrest replied. 'I learnt it from the song, ANDY WALKS WITH ME, ANDY TALKS WITH ME, ANDY TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN.' St. Peter opened the Pearly
Gates,and said: 'Run, Forrest, run.'
