An old, tired-looking dog wandered into a man’s yard. He could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home and was well taken care of.
The dog calmly came over to the man and he gave him a few pats on his head. He then followed the man into his house, slowly walked down the hall, curled up in the corner and fell asleep.
An hour later, he went to the door, and the man let him out.
The next day he was back, greeted the man in his yard, walked inside and resumed his spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour. This continued off and on for several weeks.
Curious one day, the man pinned a note to his collar: “I would like to find out who the owner of this wonderful sweet dog is and ask if you are aware that almost every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap.”
The next day he arrived for his nap, with a different note pinned to his collar: “He lives in a home with six children, two under the age of three – he’s trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?”
Two Scottish nuns had just arrived in America by boat when one said to the other: “I hear that the occupants of this country actually eat dogs.”
“Odd,” her companion replied. “But if we shall live in America, we might as well do as the Americans do.”
Nodding emphatically, the mother superior pointed to a hot dog vendor and they both walked towards him. “Two dogs, please,” said one. The vendor was only too pleased to oblige and he wrapped both hot dogs in foil. Excited, the nuns hurried over to a bench and began to unwrap their “dogs.”
The mother superior was first to open hers. Staring at it for a moment, she leaned over to the other nun and whispered cautiously: “What part did you get?”
Elizabeth was surprised to receive $10 from her Aunt for her birthday. The Aunt asked how she was going to spend it.
“I’m taking it to Sunday School and giving it to God,” the little girl replied. “He’ll be just as surprised as I was at not getting a dollar like usual.”
