A Methodist minister meets three Baptist deacons on the golf course and invites them to come to his church some Sunday …and not too many weeks thereafter, just as services are starting, they show up.
Attendance was good in the small Methodist church, and there wasn’t a pew available; several church members were already seated on folding chairs.
When the minister, just starting the service, saw the three Baptist deacons enter, he leaned down from the pulpit and stage- whispered to the nearest usher, “Please get three chairs for my Baptist friends in the back.”
The usher, hard of hearing, leaned closer and said, “I beg your pardon?”
“Get three chairs for my Baptist friends,” repeated the minister, but the usher strained closer with a puzzled look still on his face.
Once more the minister tried, speaking slowly and distinctly. “Three chairs. For the Baptists,” he enunciated.
The usher’s face lit up in comprehension, and he turned to face the congregation. “All right, everybody,” he called out to the assembled worshippers. “Three cheers for the Baptist.
Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.
Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.
Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.
Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.
What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.
