Atheist day

I have no idea if this really is true or not, but it’s cute enough to be worth reading even if it’s totally made up!

In Florida, an atheist created a case against the upcoming Easter and Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians, Jews and observances of their holy days.

The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days. The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, "Case dismissed!"

The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, "Your honour, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Xmas, Easter and others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Chanukka, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays."

The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, "But you do. Your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant."

The lawyer said, "Your Honour, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists."

The judge said, "The calendar says April 1st is April Fools Day. Psalm 14:1 states, 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned."

You gotta love a Judge that knows his scripture!

Simcha and Chaya Devoira

The physiotherapist came today, and she was very pleased with Chaya Devoira’s progress. During the session, she managed to persuade Chaya Devoira to sit up all on her own! This was the very first time she has ever done this.

Unfortunately, by the time I came in the room and saw what was going on, Chaya Devoira was getting a little tired, and was distracted by the camera, so I didn’t catch her first ever sitting.

The therapist also encouraged her to kneel up and lean on the edge of the play nest, which resulted in this…

Simcha, not wishing to be left out, came over to give Chaya Devoira a hug, causing Chaya Devoira to flop backwards! Still, it made a cute picture…

Simcha and Chaya Devoira

Chaya Devoira has learnt how to play with her feet, which apparently is an important developmental stage. I get told off for things like that, but I guess that’s the difference between being eight and a half months and being six and a half years old (which is what Shayna Brocho reckons I am!).

Simcha is now outside on her trike, learning to use the “puddles” as she calls them. Instead of sitting on the trike and walking along, she can now puddle!
