    that you have done?

    i remember once as my wife reminded me of being in an ice-cream store called united dairy farmers. i went in to purchase some milk or something like that for the dak family, i went into the store and one of my little dak daughters went with me from the car, in the store she noticed ice cream and asked if she could have a cone, being a good father i bought her one and as we came back to the car with only her ice-cream cone my other daughter was obviously upset crying why didn't i get an ice-cream cone too. i then realized my mistake and ran back in to buy her one also this is something the family will never forget.

    I can't think of one of my own off the top of my head (which definitely isn't to say I haven't done stupid things. [​IMG] ).

    But here's one that one of my sister's friends related to me. She (my sister's friend) had just made a fairly new friend and was going to go to her house for a visit. The new friend had told her that she lived in a blue house with blue Christmas lights, and also told her the street and house number. Well, my sister's friend was going to visit her sometime after it had already gotten dark, and she turned down the wrong street. By an astonishing coincidence, there was also a blue house with blue Christmas lights on this street, and my sister's friend thought that this must be the house. So she rings the doorbell and someone answers, and she asks "Hi, is Clara (made up name) there?" The woman at the door greets her warmly and says to come in. Soon enough this older girl comes down the stairs. Thinking this must be "Clara"'s older sister, my sister's friend says hi and asks if Clara will be ready soon. Bewildered, the girl says, "I am Clara."

    So yeah... By quite a coincidence, she had gone to a house with the same description as was given her (just the wrong address), and there was someone living there with the same name as her friend. I gather she was quite embarassed that she had gone to the wrong house, and I'm not sure exactly what happened after that, but I think everyone got quite a laugh out of it.

    I remember my wife sent me to the store to buy sugar for her coffee. Instead of buying sugar, I bought brown sugar. Not to bright. [​IMG]

    We talking "minor" glitches, like leaving a kid behind at the rest area?

    Or "middle of the road" oversights, like standing up to do the wedding ceremony in an outdoor mist and watching the 5 pages of notes from my ink-jet printer turn into a black glob in front of my eyes and have to do it from memory?

    Of really "BIG TIME" errors, like sneaking up behind the wife while she is looking at underwear in KMart and giving her an 'intimate' embrace and kiss on the neck . . then finding it was NOT my wife but another gal with the same hairdo and red sweater?

    Let me know. I've got some stories . . . :rolleyes:

    Left rest area and didn't know oldest son had slipped out to use the restroom. We were on the "ramp" when wife noticed! So backed up quickly.

    The wedding? Memorial Day 2003. I'd tell you the couples' names but can't read it in my notebook!!

    And Kmart? 3 years ago and yes, very real. And SHE was more embarassed than I was (and trust me, I turned red!). I later found Teresa and brought her to the gal and we laughed about the "mistake".

    And YES it WAS a mistake. :eek:

    I fought against the ME (Mobiele Eenheid= Dutch riot police) in several riots on behalf of some Communists who lived in buildings they didn't own. The riot police was trying to kick them out on behalf of the owners. :rolleyes:

    All my other stupid mistakes pale to insignificance compared to that bit of foolhardiness. :eek:

    Once, I put the peanut butter in the fridge and the jelly in the cupboard.

    That's not right [​IMG]

    I know what you mean. By the way, Netherlands is host country to some Filipino communists and their organization, the National Democratic Front of the Philippines.
    Funny how when communists are pursued in their countries, they run to the West ? Like I say to most of my friends, spread a rumor that the USA is going to give away immigrant visas for free to the first 100 in line at the embassy gates and guess who will fight tooth and nail to get to the head of the line ?
    Why. Those who march agains the US, who else ?
    Of course, that may not be entirely true, but the point is that when all is said and done, the West (USA, GB, etc) is still the better places to go to.

    There is a disturbing amount of thruth to that.
    On a personal note, I did participate in a protestmarch in the early 80's that may have counted as marching against the US, but although I think the US is a wonderfull place to visit I wouldn't want to live there.


    Another stupid mistake.
    When I was 9 years old, a rabbi visited our church to deliver a lecture on Juda├»sm. I had just studied for the first time in my life some of the creepier stories in the Old Testament. I was scared to death of anybody Jewish at that moment. [​IMG] So when we ran into eachother I tossed a jar of peanutbutter at him. :rolleyes:
    I have perfect hand-eyeco├Ârdination, so I hit him right between the eyes. :(
    If I had been Luther I would have beaned Satan with that inkjar. ;)

    Okay, you've got me. Up until I was about 40, I thought a turkey shoot was where a bunch of turkeys were all penned up so they didn't have a chance to run and people could just shoot them unfairly. I thought it was extremely cruel.

    What can I say?

    Walking out of church one Sunday, I was chatting with a friend, forgot my husband was running the sound booth and just looped my arm through the arm of the attractive gray haired man next to me in the VERY SAME jacket my husband was wearing and proceeded to greet the preacher hanging onto another man! LOL. They all died laughing and the other guy blushes and still tells the story over and over. He's in his late 60's and seems to think I'm a LOT younger than I am. LOL

    This didn't happen to me, but I am friends with the evangelist that it did.....
    He was about to step up to the pulpit to preach... the pastor asked for heads to be bowed for prayer.... so my friend decided to tuck in his shirt....
    When prayer was ended and he step forward.... Little did he know... but he had tucked the american flag into the back of his pants and down it came hitting him on top of the head...
    Needless to say... there was certainly a spirit of laughter that night.

    Right after I started preaching a few years ago, I was giving a sermon on "The Great Commission". Well it just so happened that at that time I was also a very big Star Trek fan. So here I was preaching about going, teaching, and Baptizing when I accidently called the "Great Commission" the "Prime Directive".
