A group of professionals sitting around a table talking about what the oldest profession was, when one of them, a doctor, said, "well, the Bible tells us that God took a rib out of Adam to make woman, and since that clearly required surgery, then the oldest profession is medicine.” An engineer looked at the doctor and said, “but, hey doc, the Bible also says that God created the whole world out of void and chaos, and to do that, God demonstrated the importance of engineering, so engineering is the oldest profession.” At that, a politician smiled and leaned forward and said, "gentleman, but who do you think created all the Chaos?” Now, I’m not saying that politicians have created ALL the chaos over the centuries or all the chaos we experienced in the last 12 months, but some of them definitely have had a hand in it, and have contributed to the madness of the last year.

Who began to struggle with an issue in their marriage after remodeling their garage into a home office and then had a carport built at the back of their house, with access by way of a narrow driveway.
