THE PRAYER – Schindler Sez

Did you ever wonder what a full moon is full of?

Three
“Martin,” a friend asked, “how many kids do you have?”
“Four.”
“How many do you want?”
“Three.”

The Prayer
In the 1930s, Hockey Mylott was the eighth grade boys’ basketball coach at St. Joseph’s Grade School. Before each game, the boys would get into a huddle and say a Hail Mary to protect the team from injuries and spur them on to victory. When things weren’t going well Hockey would yell at the kids, “G— damn it, get into that damn huddle and say a Hail Mary.” Rumor has it that the team prayed for Hockey…but obviously the good Lord didn’t hear them!

Drooping
Drooping eyelids, which in many cases are caused by gravity, are called ptosis (pronounced toe-sis). I wonder if they call dropping toes eye-sis? As we age, all body parts start to droop and quite frankly I don’t even want to know what they call some of the other dropping parts.

Only in America
Only in America…could they have had two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means committee), both who turned out to be tax cheats and are in favor of raising taxes.
