2008 Overheard quote of the year


We have a large portrait in the main hallway of our church that looks very similar to the one above. I still laugh when I think of what I overheard a visitor say upon seeing the portrait a few months ago-


"Wow, that's a great picture of Nostradamus"


I'm totally serious.

Glad you informed us on the portrait. Kind of thought it looked like an elder-ly, Baker’s beard in a month of so?

Those HBO Specials on Nostradamus scared me to death when I was a kid!

You should have responded: “Yes, and what's remarkable is that he accurately predicted you'd come here and say that today!” :-)
