: : Just a little reminder of wonderful weekends in the NC mountains (or coast for that matter). This was passed on to me from a friend I grew up with that misses NC terribly!
: : TELEPHONES
: : A man decided to write a book about churches across the United States.
: : First, the man visited a church in California. During his tour of the
: : magnificent building he noticed a golden telephone on a wall with a sign that read $10,000 a minute". Intrigued, he asked about the phone and was told that the golden phone was a direct line to Heaven that could be used to talk directly to God.
: : Next, the man visited a church in New York. Again, he noticed exactly the same type of phone, with exactly the same sign on it. Sure enough, upon inquiry, he was informed that it was a direct line to Heaven and could be used to talk directly to God.
: : Continuing through many other states, he found the same phone with the
: : same sign and was repeatedly told the same story, until, finally, upon
: : arriving at a church in North Carolina, he spotted the usual golden
: : telephone with a different sign. This time, the sign read "Calls 25 cents." He quickly found the preacher and said to him, "I have been in
: : cities all across the country, and in each church I found this golden telephone, I was told that it was a direct line to Heaven, and that I
: : could talk to God. But, in all the other churches across the country, the charge was $10,000.00 a minute. Your sign reads 25 cents a call. "Why?" The preacher smiled at him and said "My son,
: : that's very easy to explain. You see, you're in North Carolina now and, of course, it's a local call from here."
