So true!!

The wedding ceremony came to the point where the minister asked if anyone had anything to say concerning the union of the bride and groom.

.

The moment of utter silence was broken when a beautiful young woman carrying a child stood up. She starts walking slowly towards the minister.

The congregation was aghast – you could almost hear a pin drop.

The groom’s jaw dropped as he stared at the approaching young woman and child.

Chaos ensued.

.

The bride threw the bouquet into the air and burst out crying.

Then the groom’s mother fainted.

The best men started giving each other looks and wondering how to save the situation.

.

The minister asked the woman, “Can you tell us, why you came forward?  What do you have to say?”

.

There was absolute silence in the church.

.

The woman replied, “We can’t hear you in the back.”

.

And that illustrates what happens when people are considered guilty until proven innocent.

The  Editor:  Do you like guns, LL ?

Annie Oakley Cat:  I can’t stand them, they hurt my ears.  Amigo dispatched a couple of opossums that were eating my food.  It sure beats getting killed by opossums or raccoons.

This video is for our MSM reporters and politicians, so they can tell the difference between clips and magazines.

Here are some Second Amendment articles.  The Progressive Democrats still want all guns confiscated, except for their armed body guards.

I hope all red-flag laws are in court, like Chick-fil-A, for violating the Constitution.  Here is why you can’t give an inch on the Second Amendment.

As always, be careful with firearms.

Today’s Accidental Invention…Potato Chips

One of American’s most popular snack foods, the potato chip was invented in 1953 by George Crum, a chef at the Moon Lake Lodge Resort in Saratoga Lake, New York, when one of his customers complained that their French-fried potatoes were too thick and mushy. As legend has it, Speck’s solution was to thinly slice and fry some potatoes until brown, and the patrons loved what was to become the first-ever batch of chips.
