Wingate Road Runners Newsflash HAPPY BIRTHDAY Wingate RR wishes everyone who celebrates their birthday a blessed day and a year filled with happiness, love, friends and everything nice. January Birthdays 3 January – Mike Williams 9 January – Basil Faktor 12 January – Leoni Els 21 January – Toinette vd Merwe 25 January – Carole de Waal 26 January – Dave v Veenhuyzen IN CLOSING Sorry for last weeks in closing – I didnt realize I already placed it in the newsletter, oops!! Hope this one is newish !! Tis a Miracle indeed Murphy drops some buttered toast on the kitchen floor. It lands butter-side-up. He looks at what he has done in astonishment, for he knows its a law of nature that buttered toast always falls butter-down. He rushes round to the presbytery to fetch the priest. He tells the priest that he thinks a miracle has happened round at his flat. He wont say what it is but wants Friar Flannagan to see it with his own eyes. He brings Friar Flannagan into the kitchen and asks him what he sees on the floor." Well, says the priest, its pretty obvious what we have here. Someone dropped some buttered toast, and then for some reason flipped it over so that the butter was on top. No, Father, I dropped it and it landed like that. Well, Friar Flannagan says, its certainly a natural law of the universe that dropped toast never falls butter side up. But its not for me to say its a miracle. Ill report the matter to the bishop, and have him send people round, to interview you, take photos, etc. An investigation of some rigour is conducted, not only by priests of the archdiocese, but by scientists sent from the Curia in Rome. The final ruling is a negative, however. It reads: It was certainly an extraordinary event that occurred in Murphys room, quite outside the normal run of the phenomena. Yet we have to be very cautious before Ruling any happening miraculous, ruling out all possible natural explanations. In this case we have declared no miracle as it possibly resulted from Murphy's having buttered the toast on the wrong side. Until next week, Happy Running! Natascha de Jager 071 688 8024
