His last request.

The Old Pastor's Last Request

An old pastor lay dying. He sent a message for an IRS agent and his lawyer to come to the hospital. When they arrived, they were ushered up to his room. As they entered the room, the pastor held out his hands and motioned for them to sit on each side of the bed. The pastor grasped their hands, sighed contentedly, smiled, and stared at the ceiling. For a time, no one said anything. Both the IRS agent and lawyer were touched and flattered that the old man would ask them to be with him during his final moments. They were also puzzled because the pastor had never given any indication that he particularly liked either one of them.

Finally, the Lawyer asked, 'Pastor, why did you ask the two of us to come here?' The old pastor mustered all his strength, then said weakly, 'Jesus died between two thieves, and that's how I'd like to go.'

Yes, very funny Patty !
The bird feeder is very close my kitchen. So, every morning, when the weather will be very cold, I will keep an eye on the water from the window. If the water is ice I can change it.

LOL
Patty, you were talking about things you wanted to tell your sister after she was gone, I did the same thing after my mother was gone. My list of things I wanted to tell her got so long that I guess I finally started to foget them. You are very fortunate to have your mother, talk to her all day.........

I just got an email with the same pastor but his dying request was President Obama and Peplosi to be present. Either way it is a rather funny joke. Hope Abe is enjoying time away from the blogging world. Peace

He not only died happy, he may have set two thieves straight on his death bed! Haha.

Have a great evening, Patty.

Dear Patty ~~ I enjoyed this joke, much better than the one with the
President and someone else in it.
I had no Internet for 2 whole days,
the modem gave trouble. All fixed now thank goodness. We rely on them to keep working, don't we?
Glad I didn't get the psycho test right, had no idea. One of my bloggers did, so he is on his last chance!!! I agree with you on pet pigs in the house. They might start off cute and nice, but then
they GROW and GROW and sure are not cute then. Take great care my
friend. I hope your eyesight is still improving. Love, Merle.
