About this time last year a couple of sisters were out working in their Fort Bend County yard. You know the drill, mowing, trimming, edging, work’n on those hedges… As they were diligently working, did I mention that the sisters were 63 and 65? Yeah, you read that right; these two ladies were out tending to their yard work themselves, when some chump strolled up, pulled a knife, and demanded their car keys.
Well, it seems the sisters were having none of that! Go ahead, we’ll wait while you conjure up an image of this all on your own… There they are, all in the yard…chump posturing, wielding his knife act’n a fool, older sis splits to the neighbors to call the cops, and the younger sister, spry at 63, realized that the two blades on her hedge clipper, well they trumped the chump’s silly little pocketknife.
Umm, humm, it was a revival, right there in the front yard! A full blown Come to Jesus meeting – Hear tell, that chump either got religion or remembered how to add, because when it comes to blades, two is always better than one. One, two, one blade? Two blades?
And to think kids, you never thought you would use math in everyday life.
Wouldn’t ya’ love to know what he was think’n as he was running away?
