Grandson was given six tickets to a concert at the Roxy at the Braves Sun Trust Stadium.
His friend was going to go and could not use them.
They were $200 a piece - who does that?
He was thrilled though.
He took his then girlfriend. She was with five really nice young men.
The Roxy at the new Braves Stadium here in Atlanta.
MIND TRICK FOR THE DAY:
What is the dirtiest animal in the world?
ANSWER AT THE END.
Some of you asked for another photo from grandson's photography class - here it is:
JOKE OF THE DAY!
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK:
PRAYER FOR THE WEEK
WHO ELSE HAS GIVEN US THIS KIND OF GIFT?
CARBON DIOXIDE POISONING:
I have to take the time to tell you this story so you can tell others and maybe prevent a death.
My grandson had a car accident four weeks ago.
It was his fault - and thank God no one was hurt.
We just found out that the car IS salvageable.
Anyhow I let him use my old old car. a 2000 Honda CRV with 180,000 miles.
It is slow. It is old.
At first he was embarrassed, but is now appreciating it.
It will be two more weeks before it is fixed.
That isn't even the story I want to tell you about.
My car has a CD player and my grandson doesn't even have a CD player.
Hard to believe.
Funny he has only one CD - they gave them out at that Concert at the Roxy above!
Now see how this comes around into play.
Grandson goes to me - I am going upstairs to get the CD and try it out in the car.
I was doing dinner dishes.
He ran upstairs and got it, ran passed me, and flew in the garage.
I kept doing dishes for awhile and then - well I think it was the Holy Spirit - nudged me and said, "He has been in the garage too long".
So I stopped and went into the garage.
I opened the kitchen door and all this carbon dioxide from the muffler had filled the air.
HE HAD THE CAR ON WITH THE GARAGE DOORS DOWN~WITH THE CAR ON!!!
I screamed, "What are you doing?"
He looked at me weird.
I opened the garage doors first.
Then the car door -
he kind of fell out of it onto the garage floor and was coughing and hacking and spitting up.
I was aghast - I asked him if he was trying to commit suicide.
HE LOOKED SHOCKED LIKE I WAS JOKING -
HE HAD NO IDEA THAT WAS A WAY TO COMMIT SUICIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?
He said, "He said I was never told that - taught that." I said did't you see it on tv? He said no. I always park outside and had no idea.
I THINK HE COULD HAVE DIED
Tell your kids - we just assumed he knew that at 17, but he did not.
If he died we would have thought suicide.
Tell them others things you think they might know!!!!!!!!!! that are dangerous.
I am not saying he will never do something like this - I sure hope not -
but this was not a suicide attempt -
he just didn't know.
We just assumed he did.
THANK YOU GOD!
