WELCOME to MONDAY OCTOBER 4, 2021
No One Thought…..
I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven’s door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor.
But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp–
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash.
There stood the kid from seventh grade
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice.
Herb, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.
I nudged Jesus, ‘What’s the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here?
God must’ve made a mistake.
‘And why is everyone so quiet,
So somber – give me a clue.’
‘Hush, child,’ He said, ‘they’re all in shock.
No one thought they’d be seeing you.’
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT MONDAY people,
stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
Nancy was Catholic, but her fiance, Chris, was not. Since my friends were planning to be married
in the Catholic Church, Chris made sure to listen carefully throughout their prenuptial sessions.
At one meeting the priest turned to Chris and told him, “Since you are not Catholic, we shall
have the ceremony without Eucharist.” Later that day, Chris was noticeably upset, so Nancy asked
what was wrong. “I don’t understand,” he said. “How can we have the ceremony without me?” 😳
Fridays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Everybody calls him that.”
“Not to his face, they don’t.”
In this scene a cab driver points out the home of Bugsy Siegel (Warren Beatty) to fellow gangster Harry Greenberg (Elliott Gould). When Greenberg says, “He doesn’t like that name” the cab driver says the first line. Greenberg replies with the second. “Bugsy” tells the mostly true story of part of gangster Bugsy Siegel’s career, although it differs from actual history on how the Flamingo hotel in Las Vegas was built. The movie shows him as a visionary, starting this project. In actuality, he muscled his way into a partially completed project (started by L.A. nightclub owner Billy Wilkerson). Benjamin Siegel got the nickname “Bugsy” from fellow gangsters because of his notoriously quick temper and the fact that many considered him as “crazy as a bedbug.” In the 1992 Academy Awards, “Bugsy” won two Oscars and was nominated for Best Picture, but lost to “The Silence of the Lambs.”
Monday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???
“Don’t do this to me, it’s humiliating.”
