Almost driver


 Billy Graham was returning to Charlotte after a speaking engagement and when his plane arrived there was a limousine there to transport him to his home. As he prepared to get into the limo, he stopped and spoke to the driver.

'You know' he said, 'I am 87 years old and I have never driven a limousine. Would you mind if I drove it for a while?'
The driver said, 'No problem. Have at it.'

Billy gets into the driver's seat and they head off down the highway. A short distance away sat a rookie State Trooper operating his first speed trap.

The long black limo went by him doing 70 in a 55 mph zone.

The trooper pulled out and easily caught the limo then got out of his patrol car to begin the procedure. The young trooper walked up to the driver's door and when the glass was rolled down, he was surprised to see who was driving.

He immediately excused himself and went back to his car and called his supervisor. 'I know we are supposed to enforce the law.... but I also know that important people are given certain courtesies. I need to know what I should do because I have stopped a very important person.'
        The supervisor asked, 'Is it the governor?'
The young trooper said, 'No, he's more important than that.'
        The supervisor said, 'Oh, so it's the president.'
The young trooper said, 'No, he's even more Important than that.'
        After a moment,the supervisor finally asked, 'Well then, who is it?'

The young trooper said, 'I think it's Jesus, because he's got Billy Graham for a chauffeur!'
Can you imagine? 
 Again, my hand is week-in to  a lengthy stretch of healing. Please leave a comment! I would appreciate seeing your name. Thanks.


  1. I think it's Jesus - funny!
    Hope your hand heals soon.

  2. Now that's funny! I hope your hand gets better each day. It will be worth it in the end!

  3. That was so funny. More healing thoughts and prayers headed your way.

  4. That was so funny:)) Did not see that coming.

  5. First your hand and hope the healing is much faster than predicted..
    We are now about 6 miles from where that happened, I remember the story well, but Imma thinking the officer embellished it some. LOL. But that does sound like Billy G. Funny thing about Billy, he did personally drive an older car until he passed away or was past driving.

  6. That does make a lot of sense!

  7. I hope your healing is going well. I deplore the fact that those courtesies are extended though - no one should be above the law.

  8. I've heard the story before but it's funny every time I hear it.

  9. Billy Graham for a chauffeur...

  10. One of these stories that probably isn't true (or it's way exaggerated) but should have been true. Alana

  11. LOLOL. Yeah, I'd give him a free pass and let him go. Zero questions about it. :) I'd tell him to slow down too. ;)

  12. Praying for your quick healing.

    God bless.

  13. Fun story!

    Yes, i am praying for your healing.
