The Everyday Wisdom Newsletter. 2018
April 04, 2018
April has brought the signs of spring--the new flowers, new leaves on the trees, and birds singing. We love living in the south where spring is already here. For all of you that are still in cold weather, hold on! As a special this month, we are going to send you some of our warm weather!
April 16th is the last day to file your taxes. We would like to see some changes in our tax structure. Wouldn’t it be nice if everybody paid a tax when they bought something rather than trying to follow and file your taxes on such complicated forms.
We want to invite you to send them to all of your friends. The send to a friend button is real easy to use.

Some humor to start the month off right.
A young boy arrived to Sunday School class late. His teacher knew that the boy was usually very prompt and asked him if anything was wrong.
The boy replied no, that he was going to go fishing but his dad told him that he needed to go to church instead.
The teacher was very impressed and asked the boy if his father had explained to him why it was more important to go to church than to go fishing.
To which the boy replied, "Yes he did. My dad said that he didn't have enough bait for both of us."
