Smart elderly lady

Acts 2:38

An elderly woman had just returned to her home from an evening of church services, when she was startled by an intruder. She caught the man in the act of robbing her home of its valuables and yelled: 'Stop! Acts 2:38!' (Repent and be Baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins may be forgiven). The burglar stopped in his tracks. The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done.

As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar: 'Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you'. 'SCRIPTURE? replied the burglar. She said she had an Ax and two 38s!!'

Send this to someone who needs a good laugh today and remember: Knowing scripture can save your life -- in more ways than one!!!

Oh I like that one! Should be filed under "stupid criminals" or at the very least - hearing impaired.

Thanks for your comments on my site today. I guess when two people are meant to be together - the length of time they date before getting married is irrelevant. You and Abe were meant to be - just like my Mom and Dad.

Yes, there is more than one way to catch a criminal! Acts, Axe, they both do the job. LOL.

We are go get torrential rains and high winds tomorrow. Hope not. That would put a damper on my Sunday.

Night, Patty.

Dear Patty ~~ This is a great joke and I guess his guilty conscience made him hear wrong.
Thanks for your comment and I agree that joke was a bit rough, although the fellow got what he asked for from his wife. Glad you got some rain, we are still waiting here. It was meant to rain today, maybe later. Have a great week my friend. Take care, Love, Merle.
