She's bright, funny, pretty, athletic, smart, involved in her community and school and blonde.  She struggled with her high school Spanish classes last year, more due to the lack of skill by her teacher than anything. An honor roll student, she wants to go to vet school.
As she is working toward getting a college athletic scholarship, she's on several traveling ball teams.Her mom, her best friend, and her are coming home from a practice in the city.  She's setting in the front seat, kick'n back, as her mom pulls up to a stop sign.  She looks off to the side of the road, see's a sign among the multitude of political signs, and says "HeSus SuaVes".  Her mom who is watching traffic, said, "what did you say?".  She repeats it.  Her mom looks around her, and starts to laugh, the friend is rolling on the seat, Her mom tells her: the sign says Jesus Saves. 
It's one of those tales that you just know is going to be passed around the family forever.
Don't worry A we've all had our blonde moments.


  1. If he was a boy, he would probably have asked if Jesus was a goalie....

  2. Great story and I enjoyed Nick's comment!

  3. He He. Will she live it down? With all those pluses she has, she can brush that one off.
    Besides, blondes do have more fun.

  4. We don't have blonde jokes, but we do have our own stereotypes.

    Here is one on a Sardarji - Banta Singh.

    "Banta joins the suicide bomber squad, so when he is given a mission to suicide in the enemies camp. His leader supply him a lot of weapons and bombs stacked to his body and mobile for communications.

    He lands up in the enemy's camp, called his boss: Sir, there are 2 enemies soldier, can I suicide now?

    Leader: No, not for two, wait till you see more soldiers.

    Banta: Sir now there are 25 can I do it now?

    Boss: Wait for more.

    Banta: Sir, now I am in a midst of 100 soldiers, can I suicide now?

    Boss: Yes, go ahead, you will be a martyr, don't worry about your family, we will look after.

    Banta pulls his knife and stabs himself in his chest."

  5. Nick: That is what the boys would say. lol
    Grannymar: Thanks, you always walk in grace.
    Patti: Yes, we do have fun! She is learning to take these little mis steps in stride.
    Mari: Thank you Mam.
    Rummuser: Whoa, that's a depressing tale. I guess with one in harms way it just isn't as funny as I'm sure you intended. Glad your back to blogging, and I hope feeling better.

  6. Thirty years ago one of our local Churches posted "Jesus Saves" signs all around our area. They were JUST large enough to be read from a passing car.
    I always felt it would have been clever (but certainly would have offended a large segment of neighbors) to attach another sign that said "at ** ******* Savings and Loan!"
    (I don't know about you, but my Lord and Savior DEFINITELY has a sense of humor.)

    I'm happy you found my blog and commented, Brighid. Thank you.

  7. Greybeard, I always wanted to do that to signs too, and yes I do think your god has a sense of humor. Those who would be offended are taking life way too seriously, none of us are getting out alive...

  8. Great story. I echo the above comment: well told with the right number of words.
