Note about the audio clip:
This Windows Media Player will enable you to hear the writer read the words of the writing, making the writing come alive with the tone, tempo, inflection and style intended by the writer. We suggest that you read along while listening, with the combined senses working to add depth to your enjoyment of the writing.
How to operate the audio
In some cases the audio will start automatically. In other cases, you need to press the play arrow. (The other buttons such as Stop and Speaker can be turned on or off by clicking.) If the audio does not work on your computer, email us for guidance. For many computers, the audio file can take up to a minute to download, and thus you need to wait for the moving white progress bar to finish before pushing play if you want to hear a smooth continuous flow of words. To enjoy it again, pull back the progress square and push play. Enjoy!

Father Kelly
(A joke from a series called "A Religious Experience")

A joke about hair.
Mary Gibson complained to her priest,
"Father, you told me that, for my son to drawer closer to God, I should explain to him that God is so wise that he knows the very
number of hairs on his head."
"That's true," answered Father Kelly. "It's right in the Bible."
"Well," said Mary. "I told him that and now I have a real problem.
He doesn't want to get a haircut."
