Earl Pike

Had a great visit with my friend Reverend Earl Pike recently. Some of you know that Earl is the pastor out on the eastern plains of Colorado in Punkin Center. He's a great guy who seems to have his act together, at least in his own mind he does. He just seems to see things a bit differently than most folks.  As we visited I made mental note of some of the things he said. Only Earl...

"I put my pants on one day at a time just like the next man."

"These days, half the things in my shopping cart say, "For Fast Relief."

"So little to say, so much time to say it."

"Where there's a will, there's a greedy relative."

"When I was a kid we were so poor that my parents took us to KFC to lick other people's fingers."

"I noticed my gums were shrinking and then I realized that I had been brushing my teeth with Preparation H."

"My mind is going a mile an hour."
