Joseph's Multi-colored Coat

Joseph's pop gave him a multi-colored coat that put his brothers in a snit!

   They became so outraged that the eldest bro suggested tossing him in a pit!

      Praise the Lord!  He was rescued, ended up in Egypt and had the last laugh!

         Joe found favor in Pharaoh's eyes and was promoted to be his Chief of Staff!

    Good chuckle, Sarge. Hope all is well with you guys. Everything here is much the same. Una still struggling. Grandkids dropped by today for a visit. Perked her up a bit. Dont have any time for PS at the moment. Just wanted to pop in and wish you a Happy Birthday for tomorrow, my friend. All the best to you and Vera. God bless. Ralphie
