Treasure every moment, for time waits for no one
BY JACK K. OVERMYER
President and Owner, The Sentinel

To realize the value of a sister,

Ask someone who doesn't have one.



To realize the value of 10 years,

Ask a newly divorced couple.

To realize the value of four years,

Ask a graduate.



To realize the value of one year,

Ask a student who has failed a final exam.



To realize the value of nine months,

Ask a mother who has given birth to a stillborn.



To realize the value of one month,

Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.



To realize the value of one week,

Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.



To realize the value of one hour,

Ask lovers who are waiting to meet.



To realize the value of one second,

Ask a person who has survived an accident.



To realize the value of a millisecond,

Ask the person who won a silver medal in the Olympics.



To realize the value of a friend,

Lose one.



A man from Texas, driving a Volkswagen Beetle, pulls up next to a guy in a Rolls Royce at a stop sign. Their windows are open and he yells at the guy in the Rolls, "Hey, you got a telephone in that Rolls?"

The guy in the Rolls says, "Yes, of course I do."

"I got one too, see?" the Texan says. "Uh-huh, yes, that's very nice," is the answer.

"You got a fax machine?" asks the Texan. "Why, actually, yes, I do."

"I do too! See? It's right here!" brags the Texan.

The light is just about to turn green and the guy in the Volkswagen says, "So, do you have a double bed back there?"

The guy in the Rolls replies, "No! Do you?"

"Yep, got my double bed right back here," the Texan replies.

The light turns and the man in the Volkswagen takes off.

Well, the guy in the Rolls is not about to be one-upped, so he immediately goes to a customizing shop and orders them to put a double bed in back of his car.

About two weeks later, the job finally is done. He picks up his car and drives all over town looking for the Volkswagen Beetle with the Texas plates.

Finally, he finds it parked alongside the road, so he pulls his Rolls up next to it.

The windows on the Volkswagen are all fogged up and he feels somewhat awkward about it, but he gets out of his newly modified Rolls and taps on the foggy window of the Volkswagen.

The man in the Volkswagen finally opens the window a crack and peeks out. The guy with the Rolls says, "Hey, remember me?"

"Yeah, yeah, I remember you," replies the Texan. "What's up?"

"Check this out - I got a double bed installed in my Rolls."

And the Texan exclaims,

"You got me out of the shower to tell me that?!"
