Glendora Vegeterian Club

Folks, when you are blind, you feel very close to gravity. You offend gravity often. You knock things off the table that you do not see. You lose your balance. You fall. You ‘normal people’ must never offend gravity. And after 2 ½ years of blindness, one gets a high score on not offending gravity.

There is something that fascinates me about gravity. One, it is universal. Two, it is always attractive, never repulsive, unlike electromagnetism that is both attractive and repulsive (also like my relatives). Gravity evokes a feeling of being an ultimate characteristic of God the universe. Don’t you think gravity and love are very much alike? Consider how both of them work. 

This is as the end of my exploration today. I’m being told to remind you to be kind to others, to be kind to animals, and stop laying down your money at checkout to ruin their lives. They want to be loved and have families just the way you do.  


1. A young man said to his parents, “Here is the medical diploma you wanted me to get, and now I’m going out to be what I told you I wanted to be ever since I was seven: a fireman.”

2. She said, “I wouldn’t marry you if you were the last man on Earth. He said, “No, Honey, you would get crushed in the rush.”

3. My wife babies her car; it won’t go anywhere without a rattle.

4. The game of chess consists of two people who sit at a table for hours and do nothing. Some people call it civil service.

5. My daughter keeps looking for the perfect guy to marry.  I tell her, “Stop the search, baby; your mother got the last one.”
