Why Did the Watermelon Cross the Road?
Our daughter and grandson drove 293 miles one-way this weekend to join the rest of us in celebrating another grandson's high school graduation. Five hours can be a long time on the road. To pass the time they counted the number of critters that met their demise on the highway. Springtime must cause them to venture forth into hazardous territory...the highways and byways! Poor things! We were amazed at the total roadkill tally!
Bird - 14
Rabbit - 7
Raccoon - 3
Pheasant - 3
Cat - 1
Squirrel - 1
Skunk - 1
Goose - 1
Watermelon - 1
Unidentified flattened animal - 25
So why did the watermelon cross the road?
To get to the other side, of course!
Everybody knows that!
(Romans 8:22 -- Death has come into all of creation because of Adam's sin. Even the animal kingdom suffers until the day when the earth shall be made new again.)
