Default A "Patty" story to make you giggle

Patty came to me in September. As the leaves exploded in color. Thanksgiving was coming or as Patty called it "Skibbin" I was baking breads and steaming suet puddings to freeze for the holidays. Patty of course helped me. We passed many pleasant hours baking together. Finally "Skibbin" arrived. We spent the morning together cooking the feast for our dinner. That afternoon as we gathered at the table to eat Patty wanted to give the prayer. We all held hands and listened to Pattys prayer. She did not leave out anyone. Solemnly she asked for blessings for us all. At the end of her prayer she intoned.........God Bless the Father.......the Son .......and the Holy Goat.

Gotta love her, one of the joys of my life.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
---Mark Twain

Laura, thanks for sharing a cute story about Patty. It's wonderful that you have so many wonderful memories of your times with Patty. Hopefully she can come to visit you in Florida.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
