Sunday Funnies

The wise old Mother Superior was dying. The nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her comfortable. They gave her some warm milk to drink, but she refused it. One nun remembered they had received a bottle of Irish whiskey the previous Christmas. Taking the glass into the kitchen, she opened the whiskey and poured a generous amount into the warm milk.

Walking back into the room, she held the glass to Mother Superior’s lips. The Mother drank a little, then a little more. Before they knew it, she emptied the glass.

“Mother,” the nuns asked with earnest, “please give us some wisdom before you die.”

She raised herself up in bed and with a pious look on her face said, “Don’t sell that cow.”

Good, Ralph! It reminds me that we were given a bottle of Scotch whiskey from our Scotland hotel a couple of years ago. I will take it to the old folk home.

Trying to get caught up...
Love the jokes - but the story of your FIL really cracked me up! Been there, done that!!! My auntie had one and we had the same problem! Then a couple days later, she fell. She was still on the floor when I came home an hour later, mad as the devil because the "thing" did not work. She expected it to go off by itself when she fell as it had gone off by itself several times before when she bumped it or dozed off and rolled over on it. sigh. It took me a bit longer to find the humor in it all than it did you!
