Torquefest was all we expected, and more. After going
to our car club breakfast the wife and I cruised off to
Maquoketa to see what was shaking.
When we arrived there were motorcycles trying out the
dirt track and later the cars raising a little dust was

of vendors for everything from a haircut, to food, to
Next time I’ll have to remember the camera. We’ll put
something together for monday, but in the meantime,

Having arrived at the Gates of Heaven, Barrack Obama
meets a man With a beard. ‘Are you Mohammed?’ he asks.
‘No my son, I am St. Peter; Mohammed is higher up. Peter
then points to a Ladder that rises into the clouds.
Delighted that Mohammed should be higher than St. Peter,
Obama Climbs the ladder in great strides, climbs up
through the clouds and comes into a room where he meets
another bearded man. He asks again, ‘Are you Mohammed?’
‘Why no he answers, I am Moses; Mohammed is higher still.’
Exhausted, but with a heart full of joy he climbs the ladder
yet Again, he discovers a larger room where he meets an
angelic looking man With a beard. Full of hope, he asks again,
‘Are you Mohammed?
‘No, I am Jesus, the Christ…you will find Mohammed higher up. ‘
Mohammed higher than Jesus! Man, oh man! Obama can hardly contain
his delight and climbs and climbs ever higher. Once again, he
reaches an even larger room where he meets this truly magnificent
looking man with a silver white beard and once again repeats his
question: “Are you Mohammed?” He gasps as he is by now, totally
out of breath from all his climbing.
‘No, my son…. I am Almighty God, the Alpha and the Omega, but
you look exhausted. Would you like a cup of coffee?”
Obama says, “Yes please”! As God looks behind him, he claps his
Hands and yells out: “Hey Mohammed – two coffees!
Keep your trust in God…your president is an idiot…
