One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex was staring up at the large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church. The plaque was covered with names, and small American flags were mounted on either side of it. The seven-year-old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside him and said quietly, "Good morning, Alex."

"Good morning, Pastor," replied the young man, still focused on the plaque. "Pastor McGhee, what is this?" Alex asked.

"Well, son, it's a memorial to all the men and women who have died in the service."

Soberly, they stood together, staring at the large plaque. Little Alex's voice was barely audible when he finally managed to ask, "Which one, the 9:00 or 10:30 service?

This is the story of a woodcarver who lived in a house in a forest with a rabbit and a housemaid. Among the duties of the housemaid was to dress the rabbit each morning as he was unable to dress himself.

One day, after they had their breakfast and the rabbit was dressed, the rabbit and the woodcarver went out into the forest to find wood that would be suitable for carving.

They soon found what they agreed was a wonderful piece of wood just perfect for a wood sculpture. Unfortunately, they couldn't agree on what to carve.

The woodcarver wanted to carve a mother sheep feeding her lambs.

The rabbit wanted to see the piece become a wooden Dutch shoe.

Finally, they agreed to let the housemaid decide, so they went back to the cottage and explained their problem.

The housemaid decided to flip a coin: Heads would mean that the woodcarver would carve the sheep, tails would mean that the shoe would win.

You can imagine the suspense when she flicked up the coin, caught it and peeked.

Wood ewe or wooden shoe? Only the haredresser knew for sure..
