Happy Easter

Flowers for Easter Sunday
Father O'Maley checks estimates for the flower decoration of the altar, for Easter Sunday.

The catholic florist - $300. "Too expensive" moans the priest.

The protestant florist - $250. "No, it would not be right to buy at a different Christian believer, especially as the price difference is rather small."

Solly Goldberg -$ 75. Religion or economics?

After much consideration, Solly gets the contract.

On Easter Sunday morning, Goldberg's men deliver the flowers: wonderful roses, azaleas, camellias, tulips and carnations.

O'Maley's last reservations are discarded.

When the parishioners arrive in the church, they see the magnificent flower arrangement and a ribbon with the in-
scription:

"Jesus has risen! But the price of Goldberg Flowers always stays the same."

This is a beautiful entry. :)

I won't be around tomorrow, as I'm going to church and then out for dinner with a nice gentleman who lives in the same apartment building as I do.

Wishing you and your loved ones a very blessed and wonderful Happy Easter! :)

Hi Patty, you always have such cute posts. Thanks for dropping by mine. Hope your internet connection is not being a pain still. What you were making sounded like a darned good meal to me. Easy, no fuss but very tasty.
