    From Fathers Day Church Jun 15, 2015

    2. The woman was a photographer. She shot a picture of her husband, developed it, and hung it up to dry ( shot; held under water; and hung).
    3. Charcoal, as it is used in barbecuing.
    4. Sure you can name three consecutive days, yesterday, today, and tomorrow!
    5. The letter “e” which is the most common letter used in the English language, does not appear even once in the paragraph.
