Yuck! I saw a brown snake yesterday! It was heaps scary. Mum grabbed the shovel and tried smashing it, and then Dad came out and squashed/cut the snake. That's the first time I've seen a snake that close. Hopefully never again.

On other news, my sister Kristy and BIL Steve are down for the weekend. They have some preliminary wedding photos with them, and they're really nice. I'm looking forward to the weekend.

Funny but Sad

I got this story from Bonnie.
It's sad how true this can be sometimes.

A man was being tailgated by a stressed out woman on a busy boulevard. Suddenly, the light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.

The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup. As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer.

The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, finger printed, photographed, and placed in a holding cell. After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door.

She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects. He said, 'I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you, and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do' bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'Follow Me to Sunday-School' bumper Sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk. Naturally...I assumed you had stolen the car.'

The Marriage Wish by Dee Henderson

Updated to add: I managed to get a picture of this off of Amazon thanks to my wonderfully talented sister, Kristy!

The Marriage Wish by Dee Henderson

Successful, blessed with friends and a rich faith ~~ as Scott Williams's thirty-eighth birthday dawned, he was at the top of his game. Or was he? For while his life seemed perfect to others, Scott felt that something was missing. But how could a rugged executive admit he yearned for a family of his own to love?

After making a birthday wish to meet the woman of his dreams, Scott encountered enchanting author Jennifer St. James strolling along the beach. Her beautiful looks hid a heart mourning her late husband and a faith once deep, now fragile. Would Scott's hopes and prayers bring fulfillment for both of their dreams?

I enjoyed this book because unlike a lot of romance books that I've read, Jennifer doesn't just give up without a fight. I really enjoyed that they were working together, instead of Scott pushing and pushing. She tried extremely hard to work past her pain, and Scott helped her. I really enjoy Dee Henderson's work because she is an excellent writer, and while this isn't as good as some of her later books, it is still a very enjoyable book.
