Youth Homeschoolers' Epistle

issue 8 (?)

Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and change the subject.

When somebody says "I'll be right back," once in a while I ask them if that was a promise or a threat. Depending on who it was, of course. Sometimes, I know it was a threat.
Anyhow, here we go again. Ya'll know what this is and everything. If you want to send something in, go ahead. We'll include it in the next issue. If it's something you wrote, saw somewhere, or however you came upon it, that's cool. If it's yours, send it with your name on it. If it's in the public domain, whatever that is, it can take care of itself. Otherwise we need an author, and if you don't know and we don't know and nobody else does either, it's by that genius Author Unknown and that's the end of that.

Last time around we were doing a personal profile of a recipient per Epi. I think we pretty much covered everybody that wanted to do that. (If we missed you, please raise your hand...) We were also doing Bible verses...a question of the month, book reviews, movie reviews...and so on, and so forth.


Isaiah 41:10
"Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."


Mother's Day is coming up soon. But before we get there, what about a Sibling Appreciation Day? Maybe there's already one on the calander someplace. But for May's Epi, how about sending in a tribute to your sibs? I know they're a pain sometimes. You have to babysit when you'd much rather do something, anything, else. Or if you're the younger sib, you might get beat down a lot. However. One of the 86,493 wise things my mom told me was that someday, my sister and I could be best friends. There could never be a closer pal than a sister could be. Turns out she was right. Took a few years, but she was right. (Again.) So how about a few lines about those cool people in your life--your sisters and brothers?


And speaking of cool people, C.M.O'N.'s 18th birthday was this...oops...last week!


The president of a large corporation opened his directors meeting by announcing, "All those who are opposed to the plan I am about to propose will reply by saying, 'I resign'."

Men and Women on Haircuts

CATHY: Oh! You got a haircut! That's so cute!

LISA: Do you think so? I wasn't sure when she gave me the mirror. I mean, you don't think it's too fluffy looking?

CATHY: Oh no! No, it's perfect. I'd love to get my hair cut like that, but I think my face is too wide. I'm pretty much stuck with this stuff I think.

LISA: Are you serious? I think your face is adorable. And you could easily get one of those layer cuts, that would look so cute I think. I was actually going to do that except that I was afraid it would accent my long neck.

CATHY: Oh, that's funny! I would love to have your neck! Anything to take attention away from this two-by-four I have for a shoulder line.

LISA: Are you kidding? I know girls that would love to have your shoulders. Everything drapes so well on you. I mean, look at my arms - see how short they are? If I had your shoulders I could get clothes to fit me so much easier.


PETER: Haircut?

DAVE: Yep.


On April Fool's day my brother walked away from his desk. When he returned to his desk, he noticed a note taped to his screen; it had the name of Mr. Lions and the number where he could reach this individual.
When he called the individual back, he got this really grumpy lady at the other end. When he identified who he was and that he was returning Mr. Lion's call, the lady replied, "Son, I'm sorry, but this is the Pittsburgh ZOO."


Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine they lay down for the night, and went to sleep.
Some hours later, Watson awoke and nudged his faithful friend. "Holmes, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

Holmes replied, "I see millions and millions of stars."

"What does that tell you?"

Holmes pondered for a minute. "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.

Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, I supect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?"

Watson was silent for a minute, then spoke. "Holmes. You blockhead. Someone stole our tent."

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all doing direct the other way--in short, the period was *so far like* the p r e s e n t p e r i o d, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."
- Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
