              Can you tell what this is a picture of?

I remember out of High School I considered applying for a position with Aramco, a Kuwait Gulf Oil Company. This was prior to the Internet, so the fliers and paperwork came through the snail mail.

Over time, he became irritated at the little old lady. So every morning he would step out onto his front porch and yell after her, “There is no God!” Time passes with the two of them carrying on this way every day. Then one morning in the middle of winter, the little old lady stepped onto her front porch and shouted, “Praise the Lord! Lord, I have no food and...
