Hi Chief,,,,,, Most of the funnies that you post here put a smile on my
face. Some of them make me LOL..... This one has soooo much truth in it
that I feel like W. Cronkite (SP) because I want to say is "and that is the
way it is".

God, Twinkies and Root Beer
A little boy wanted to meet God. He knew it was a long trip to where God
lived, so he packed his suitcase with Twinkies and a six-pack of Root
Beer and he started his journey.
When he had gone about three blocks, he met an elderly man. The man was
sitting in the park, just feeding some pigeons.
The boy sat down next to him and opened his suitcase.
He was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed that the
man looked hungry, so he offered him a Twinkie.
The man gratefully accepted it and smiled at boy. His smile was so
pleasant that the boy wanted to see it again, so he offered him a root
beer. Again, the man smiled at him. The boy was delighted! They sat
there all afternoon eating and smiling, but they never said a word.
As it grew dark, the boy realized how tired he was and he got up to
leave, but before he had gone more than a few steps, he turned around,
ran back to the man, and gave him a hug. The man gave him his biggest
When the boy opened the door to his own house a short time later, his
mother was surprised by the look of joy on his face. She asked him,
"What did you do today that made you so happy?"
He replied, "I had lunch with God."
But before his mother could respond, he added, "You know what? God's
got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen!"
Meanwhile, the elderly man, also radiant with joy, returned to his home.
His son was stunned by the look of peace on his face and he asked,
"Dad, what did you do today that made you so happy?"
He replied, "I ate Twinkies in the park with God". However, before his
son responded, he added, "You know, he's much younger than I expected."
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a
listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all
of which have the potential to turn a life around.
May you be filled with the joy of a child today!
... God must love calories; he made so many of them.
