Weather: Beautiful, just Fricken Beautiful.
What a great weekend, and this week the weather looks great too. Mostly in the 70’s, sunshine, a little rain and maybe a day in the high 80’s. A few of them 80 degree days are ok but I prefer it in the 70’s. The sun is out and the grass is growing after the rain we have had, so my least favorite summertime job of grass cutting will have to start taking place on a weekly basis again. I worked down at the garage yesterday, drank some beers but I did get a lot done. Clean up mostly but what a great day to be outside. Except for the fricken mosquito or what ever it was that bit me on the lip. Holy shit, my lip swelled up and it still hurts this morning.
The next two days are not going to be any fun, I have to go get roto routed on Wednesday, it sucks getting old, but I want to try and live long enough to collect some of that social security I paid in over the years so I started going to the doctor and “trying” to take care of myself a little better. I did read something on the internet (I read it on the internet so It has to be true) that Agave is good for your body. So I guess by drinking Tequila I have sub consciously been health conscious all along.
Priest’s Retirement Speech
You don’t need to be a Catholic and go to Confession to appreciate this story. Make sure you live by the last line!!!!
Priest’s Retirement Speech
A Priest was being honored at his retirement dinner after 35 years in the parish.
A leading local figure and member of the congregation was chosen to make the presentation and to give a little speech at the dinner. However, he was delayed, so the Priest decided to say his own few words while they waited:
“Thank Goodness we Catholics have a wonderful sense of humor! I got my first impression of this parish from the first confession I heard here. I thought I had been assigned to a terrible place. The very first person who entered my confessional told me he had stolen a television set, and when questioned by the police, was able to lie his way out of it. He had stolen money from his parents; embezzled from his employer; had an affair with his boss’s wife; had sex with his boss’s 17 year old daughter on numerous occasions, taken illegal drugs; had several homosexual affairs; was arrested several times for public nudity and gave VD to his sister-in-law. I was appalled that one person could do so many awful things.
But as the days went on, I learned that my people were not all like that and I had, indeed, come to a fine parish full of good and loving people.”
Just as the Priest finished his talk, the politician arrived full of apologies at being late. He immediately began to make the presentation and began his talk: “I’ll never forget the first day our parish Priest arrived,” said the politician. “In fact, I had the honor of being the first person to ever go to him for confession and receive penance.”
Moral of the story: Never, never be late!
