All birds have specialized tail feathers that help with flight. These feathers are called pinions.

If you look closely you can tell that ravens have four of these feathers while crows only have three. You could say the difference is just a matter of a pinion.”

Once upon a time there was a very handsome male camel named Alfred with
two huge camel humps.
He fell in love and married a beautiful female camel named Marie, who had
one perfect camel hump.
As time progressed, they became the proud parents of a wonderful baby boy
camel, born with no humps.
They contemplated long and hard on
what to name their beautiful little boy. They finally decided on …
Humpfree.    :  )

A single guy decided life would be more fun 
if he had a pet.So he went to the pet store 
and told the owner 
that he wanted to buy an unusual pet.

After some discussion, 
he finally bought a talking centipede, 
(100-legged bug), 
which came in a little white box 
to use for his house.He took the box back home, 
found a good spot for the box, 
and decided he would start off 
by taking his new pet 
to church with him.

So he asked the centipede in the box, 
”Would you like to go 
to church with me today? 
We will have a good time.”But there was no answer 
from his new pet.

This bothered him a bit, 
but he waited a few minutes 
and then asked again, 
”How about going 
to church with me and receive blessings?”

But again, 
there was no answer 
from his new friend and pet. 
So he waited 
a few minutes more, 
thinking about the situation.

The guy decided 
to invite the centipede 
one last time.

This time he
put his face up against 
the centipede’s house and shouted,

“Hey, in there! 
Would you like to go to
church with me and learn about God?”

YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS …… This time, a little voice came out of the box,

”I heard you the first time!

I ‘ m putting my shoes on!”
