…bad riddles of the week, beginning with a brain teaser:

Sorry the links are up a bit late this morning… I was tuckered out last night, so I retired early… and this morning I was treated to breakfast in bed by my daughters. Toasted ham and cheese sandwich, dry cereal, ice water flavoured with a bit of red freezie, and the rest of the freezie. I think they want something.
Anyway, on to the random goodness…

- Pat Loughery delivers A Summary of Three Celtic Christian Communities. I resonate: “I feel the desire (or is it need?) to be connected to a community that thinks like I do, that challenges me to grow, that is on the same type of journey that i’m on. I feel the desire for something formal(ish).” And I’d have to say that “-ish” must be just about my favorite suffix.
AAaaaaaannnnd…. that’s a wrap for this week in the continuing story of a quack who’s gone to the dogs.
NURSE JANICE: Dr. Bob, may I remind you this is a hospital?
DR. BOB: Oh, I’m glad you did. The way the jokes were dying, I thought it was a morgue!
BUNNY: Hey, hurry up, will ya? I gotta get back to the hutch!
DR. BOB: The what?
NURSE PIGGY: Hutch. That’s where rabbits live.
DR. BOB: I know that. I even know where it is. It’s behind a famous cathedral.
DR. BOB: You must have heard of it. The hutch back of Notre Dame?
NURSE PIGGY: That rings a bell!
And so we come to the end of another Veterinarian’s Hospital.
DR. BOB: Good!
Tune in next week when you’ll hear Nurse Janice say:
NURSE JANICE: Oh, Dr. Bob, that was really a long way to go for that last joke! You should have packed a lunch!
DR. BOB: I did. I ate it behind the cathedral.
DR. BOB: Yes. I had the lunch back of Notre Dame!
