A reminder that one word in the English language that can be 
a noun, verb, adjective, adverb, and/or a preposition.  
This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is 'UP.' It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv.], [prep.], [adj.], [n] or [v].  
It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?  
At a meeting, why does a topic come UP?  Why do we speak UP, and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report?  We call UP our friends,  brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and fix UP the old car.  
At other times, this little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.  
To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special.  
And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.  
We open UP a store in the morning, but we close it UPat night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!  
To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look UP the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions.  
If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more.  
When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out, we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, the earth soaks it UP. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now . . . my time is UP!  
Did that one crack you UP?  
Don't screw UP. Send this on to everyone you look UP in your address book . . . Or .it's UP to you.  
Now I'll shut UP!  
I like,     "UP yours"!     (Ev)

Mom, How Did the Human Race Appear? 
A little girl asked her mother, "How did the human race appear?"  
The mother answered, "God made Adam and Eve and they had children, and so was all mankind made.."  
Two days later the girl asked her father the same question.. The father answered, "Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved."  
The confused girl returned to her mother and said, "Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys?"  
The mother answered, "Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his."
Two married friends are out drinking one night, when one turns to the other and says, "You know I don't know what else to do. Whenever I go home after we've been out drinking, I turn the headlights off before I get to the driveway. I shut off the engine and coast into the garage.  
Take my shoes off before I go into the house, I sneak up the stairs, get undressed in the bathroom, stick my foot in the toilet and pee down my leg to prevent splashing sounds.  
I ease into bed and my wife "still" wakes up and yells at me for staying out so late."  
His friend looks at him and says, "Well, you're obviously taking the wrong approach.  
I screech into the driveway, slam the door, storm up the steps, pee hard into the toilet water, then use the full flush, throw my shoes in the closet, undress in the bedroom, then jump into bed, slap her on the butt and say, "Who'sHorny"?!'  
She always acts like she's sound asleep. Works every time!"
I'm leavin' now, but not on a Jet Plane. See ya'!
Please say a prayer
