This morning as Pastor Wayne was teaching at Oasis, from 1 Corinthians 16, the passage of scripture had the word "opportunity" in it several times. This caused my mind to wander, to, of all things, a joke my dad used to tell.
If you know my dad, you know that he is a great joke teller - always has been, and he also is a piano tuner. So this joke he told was:
There was a piano tuner whose name was OpporKnockity. So this tuner, OpporKnockity tuned a piano for someone, but sadly, after the tuner had left, the customer realized that the tuner had not done a satisfactory job, and he called to have the tuner return. And the tuner's response was "No. OpporKnockity tunes only once."
Get it?
If you don't, let me know and I'll help you out!


  1. Had to read it twice but am glad that I "got it."

  2. Thanks, I'm giving a 'fireside' talk with some youth and this is just what I was looking for. Thanks for posting.
