New Texas Priest

From Rick Bruno, 71C

A new priest, born and raised in Texas, comes to serve in a city parish and is nervous about hearing confessions, so he asks the older priest to sit in on his sessions.

The new priest hears a couple of confessions, then the old priest asks him to step out of the confessional for a few suggestions.

The old priest suggests, “Cross your arms over your chest, and rub your chin with one hand and try saying things like ‘yes, I see,’ and ‘yes, go on,’ and ‘I understand.’

The new priest crosses his arms, rubs his chin with one hand and repeats all the suggested remarks to the old priest.

The old priest says, “Now, don’t you think that’s a little better than slapping your knee and saying, “No shit, what happened next?”

Amazing Photo as Aircraft Slams Into Buildings

From Rick Bruno, 71C

In the words of a reporter at another tragic air disaster….”Oh the humanity, the humanity”.

Just devastating!

Amazing photos show great detail.  The pilot at low level had no Control over his aircraft.  It narrowly misses a crowd gathered for the air show and slams into four buildings. One can only imagine the horror of the occupants inside those buildings.

XXX – Cell Phone Rudeness

Cell Phone Rudeness

One of my pet peeves is the almost constant use of mobile phones by people while driving, shopping, dining and queuing  at the supermarket etc. Does no one know how to say  ‘I’ll call you back’?  

Well, it has gone beyond that now, with them being used in relaxing getaway places like on the beach.  This is beyond being inconsiderate. While on the beach recently, I had to just sit there and listen to a woman for at least an hour while she talked on her phone and pranced back forth in front of me.  I couldn’t concentrate on my book.

How thoughtless and inconsiderate

I almost got up and moved away!!!

The Wisdom of Older Women

From Rick Bruno, 71C

After being married for 50 years, I took a careful look at my wife one day and said … “Fifty” years ago we had a cheap house, a junk car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10-inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 18-year-old girl. Now … I have a $500,000.00 home, a $35,000.00 car, a nice big bed and a large screen TV, but I’m sleeping with a 68-year-old woman. It seems to me that you’re not holding up your side of things.” My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 18-year-old girl and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap house, driving a junk car, sleeping on a sofa bed and watching a 10-inch black and white TV. Aren’t older women great? They really know how to solve an old guy’s problems.
