Quick Hits

Just a couple of quick and somewhat random thoughts today.

Enjoyed my day off today more than I have in a while. My wife sent me skiing. Isn’t she awesome?! Spent most of the day on the slopes. Got my mind totally rebooted (yes, I’m a computer geek 🙂 ). After playing racquetball last night and skiing today, I can only imagine what my knees will feel like in the morning.

This is where I went skiing today.

Perry Noble had 3 great posts on what the church can learn from the auto industry (part one) (part two) (part three).

Mark Batterson’s post on John Edwards (not the modern one) was quite inspirational.

I appreciated the post from Lifechurch.tv on the life of a pastor.

Eric Bryant weighed in on his thoughts about college football here.

Finally, this was emailed to me and I found it humorous:
A Wisconsin senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of a Milwaukee dealership.
Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.
‘Amazing,’ he thought as he flew down I-94 towards Madison, pushing the pedal even more.
Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a State Patrol car behind him, blue and red lights flashing. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120.
Suddenly he thought, ‘What am I doing? I’m too old for this,’ and pulled over to await the Trooper’s arrival.
Pulling in behind him, the Trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch and said, ‘Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that I’ve never heard before, I’ll let you go.’
The old gentleman paused. Then said, ‘Years ago, my wife ran off with a Wisconsin State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.’
‘Have a good day, Sir,’ replied the Trooper. 🙂
