This is about an hour from my house.
An elderly man suffered a massive heart attack. The family drove wildly to get him to the emergency room.?
After what seemed like a very long wait, the ER doctor appeared wearing his scrubs and a long face. Sadly, he said, “I’m afraid Grandpa is brain-dead, but his heart is still beating.”
“Oh, Dear God,” cried his wife, her hands clasped against her cheeks with shock.
“We’ve never had a Democrat in the family before!”
That could just as easily said Republican and it would still be funny.
Authorities in northeast Texas were assessing damage Monday morning after a tornado destroyed homes, knocked train cars off their tracks and injured at least four people.
Five homes in Rice, Texas, were destroyed as 125 mph winds whipped through a seven-mile swath of Navarro County Sunday evening, said Eric Meyers, the county’s emergency management coordinator.
Meyers rode out the tornado inside a vehicle and videotaped the twister as it tore the roof off a school about a block away.
