"For by Grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not of your own doing. , It is a gift of God not a result of good works so no one can boast" Ephesians 2 :8-9
Mrs. Forrest has always been a compulsive feeder. Before she retired, she was cooking for the Mule Barn truck stop's customers, and is singularly responsible for about three flabby tons of avoirdupois on this nation's truck drivers, and may have been marginally responsible, third-hand, for a cardiac event or two.
Dear EarthTalk: My vet tells me my 18-year-old cat is nearing the end of her life and I'm wondering what my options are for a green-friendly burial? -- Sandy Monroe, New York, NY

It was like buzzards circling the body.
The Jones kid, Randy, was out in the Mule Barn parking lot with the hood up on his car. He was staring down into it the way a first-time parachutist would look out the airplane door. You never quite knew for sure what lay ahead.
"Looks like Randy's got problems," said Steve.
"Let's have a look," said Dud.
So coffee was left to get cold and the entire Supreme Court of All Things Mechanical - Steve, Dud, Doc, Herb and Dewey - trooped out to see what was going on.
Luke 6:27-28 "Love your enemies, do go to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you."
It was just one of those things. It didn't really mean Marvin Pincus had lost his mind. Consider this yourself for a minute. Marvin had opened the mail that morning and in it was the Fenwick glass fly rod he'd ordered. Oh, it was used, of course. But there's a feel to a Fenwick that only a man dedicated to a life of using dry flies can appreciate.
I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day. I did -- didn't have to cook!!
GREAT NEWS!! After spending 3 months in the hospital, Jerry Weber has been released and is staying with his sister, Kathy Knutson in Denver while he does therapy. We are happy that you are doing so well Jerry, but I'm sure no one is any happier than you are!! Hope to see you back home soon.
Dear EarthTalk: It's finally time for me to retire my trusty old Nalgene and upgrade my water bottle. Are any brands or models particularly greener than others? -- Cyndi Bland, Tempe, AZ
When Dewey and Emily walked into the Mule Barn the other day, they were greeted with applause and whistles. Emily blushed and Dewey took a bow, almost hitting the coffee pot Loretta was carrying.
"I hear you too really fell for each other," Doc said. "And the way I hear it, many times."
"That's right, Doc, I finally cornered him and we're planning a wedding," Emily said.
Emily is a brave soul, taking for a husband the most accident prone human being since Wrong Way Corrigan.
