An Old Preacher

An 86 year old retired pastor was attending a church when the pastor announced that there would be a "Work Day" the following Saturday. When Saturday came the pastor looked out and saw the old man tottering towards him. He had bib-overalls on. To the best of his ability he was grasping a hammer in hands that were crippled by arthritis. The pastor stopped and said, "Brother, why are you here? We don't expect you to have to show up for a 'Work Day'." The old man looked up with 86 years of fire still gleaming in his eyes and said, "I just wanted people to know where I stand."
