Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes…. 

Having grown up just outside New York City, I barely knew a cow from an
 ear of corn. Until, that is, I married a small town Ohio girl. While I was in
 seminary school, I had a temporary assignment at a church in a rural
community. The day of my first sermon, I tried very hard to fit in. Maybe
too hard. With my wife sitting in the first pew, I began my discourse:
“I never saw a cow until I met my wife.”  😱😳👀😁😎

Wednesday’s Quizzler is….​

How quickly can you find out what is so unusual about this paragraph? It looks so ordinary that you would think that nothing is wrong with it at all, and, in fact, nothing is. But it is unusual. Why? If you study it and think about it, you may find out, but I am not going to assist you in any way.  You must do it without coaching. No doubt, if you work at it for long, it will dawn on you.  Who knows? Go to work and try your skill. Par is about half an hour.
