Sisters of Mercy
|A man was driving down the highway, and sees a sign saying “Sisters of Mercy, House of Prostitution, 10 miles” Thinking it is some sort of joke, he pays no attention, until he sees a similar sign reading “Sister’s of Mercy, House of Prostitution, 5 miles.”Still unsure, he drives on, until spotting a third sign saying “Sister’s of Mercy, House of Prostitution, next exit”. His curiosity getting the better of him, he takes the exit and parks his car outside the convent.He knocks on the door, and tells the nun who answers “I saw your signs on the highway, are they for real?”The nun answers “Yes”, and tells him to give her $50 and follow her to a room.He enters a room, and a second nun requests $50, and leads him to a door. Once he opens the door, he is quickly shoved outside by the nun.
He finds himself behind the convent, where he sees the final sign,
“Thank you for you contributions, you have just been screwed by the Sisters of Mercy.”
Look what I got from Mother of this Lot at Mothers Pride! God love ‘er. I have so many awards now, I’ve had to file them away. You know me and clutter. (She needs an award for raising five girls!)
I haven’t tackled anything with the Tacklers for a while, and as my fridge is a mess, I thought I’d share it with you. I hadn’t planned to do it till later in the week, but it’s raining (surprise, surprise) and I have an hour to spare before I collect the girls from school
Mmmm…methinks I need to go shopping tomorrow!
Eventually, I managed to set a date for my Book Club. I already have three friends from the Carers and Toddler Group who will be coming along for a meal and a chat (any excuse for a night out!) We’ll meet for the first time on Shrove Tuesday and decide on the book we’ll be reading before the next get-together. Any suggestions from avid book readers welcome!
I had a lovely comment from Anna Allen yesterday. Remember this post? I was concerned that you, my dear blogging friends thought this article was written by me, even though it clearly states it was the words of Ms Allen. Read her comment…
Here’s the new addition to the family.
‘Bobby’ (that’s his real name!) is a 12 week old kitten who is a real handful. He runs around the house as if he’s scared out of his wits, then goes off for a sleep under my bed for most of the day. he’s a rescue kitten, abandoned just before Christmas, so he would have been tiny then. We were in two minds whether to call him Depp because of his facial hair.
See the resemblance?
I’ve plucked up the courage to join this months Royal Foodie Joust on Jens blog ‘The Leftover Queen’ This months ingredients are cinnamon, lentils and aubergine (also known as eggplant across the water) So, that’s what I’ll be doing this afternoon. I know exactly what I’ll be making, so I’ll post the results here later.
Wish me luck!

“Let’s go up to our room and I’ll prove it.” In their room, William called down to the desk and asked for Candie to come to room 1217.
“Now,” he said, “you hide in the bathroom with the door open just enough to hear us, okay?” She did. Soon, there was a knock on the door. William opened it and Candie walked in, swirling her hips provocatively.
“So, I see you’re interested after all,” she said.
William asked, “How much do you charge?”
“$125 basic rate, $100 tips for special services.”
William was taken aback. “$125! I was thinking more in the range of $25.”
Candie laughed derisively. “You must really be a hick if you think you can buy sex for that price.”
“Well,” said W illiam, “I guess we can’t do business. Goodbye.” After she left, Mildred came out of the bathroom. “I just can’t believe it.”
William said, “Let’s forget it. We’ll go have a drink, then eat dinner.”
At the bar, as they sipped their cocktails, Candie came up behind William pointed slyly at Mildred, and said, “See what you get for $25?”
” No problem.” the tired Army guy assured him, “I’ll take it.” The next morning the soldier came down to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy tailed. “How’d you sleep?” asked the manager. “Never better”, said the soldier. The manager was impressed. “No problem with the other guy snoring all night long?” “No, I shut him up in no time”, explained the soldier.
“How’d you manage that?” asked the proprietor.
“Well, he was already in bed, snoring away, when I walked into the room, so I gave him a kiss on the cheek” explained the soldier. “Then, I whispered in his ear ‘Good night beautiful’, and he sat up all night watching me.”
