A Nun And Some Warm Milk March 17, 2018

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.

In a convent in Ireland, the 98-year-old Mother Superior lay  dying.

The Nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her last journey comfortable.

They tried giving her warm milk to drink but she refused it.

One of the nuns took the glass back to the kitchen. Then, remembering a bottle of Irish Whiskey that had been received as a gift the previous Christmas, she opened it and poured a generous amount into the warm milk.

Back at Mother Superior’s bed, they held the glass to her lips.

The frail Nun drank a little, then a little more and before they knew it, she had finished the whole glass down to the last drop.

As her eyes brightened, the nuns thought it would be a good opportunity to have one last talk with their spiritual leader.

“Mother,” the nuns asked earnestly, “Please give us some of your wisdom before you leave us.”

She raised herself up in bed on one elbow, looked at them and said:


Aah . . . that’s better!

LOL! Good one 🙂

And so it came to pass, the cow was not sold.
And no one knew why, for it was but an ordinary cow.
And neither did the cow.

Have a great weekend,

So appropriate! Happy St. Pat’s Day!

This post coinciding with St. Paddy’s day => just happenstance and coincidence! No planning on my part.

I love it when stuff like that just happens. 😀

Q. Why should you never iron a 4-leaf clover???
A. You don’t want to press your luck! :mrgreen:

Val Boyko - March 19, 2018

Can’t stop you Nancy! Hope your weekend was a barrel of laughs 😊

nrhatch - March 19, 2018

Not bad. Got to see 2 nieces, my sister, her husband, 2 cousins (and a cousin-in-law), and my only aunt.

Love this story, Nancy. Wise advice indeed. 😃

nrhatch - March 17, 2018

Glad you enjoyed, Sylvia! Thanks for sharing Iggy’s greenery today!

12. Debra - March 18, 2018

I never really cared for milk! But then again, I never tried this special brew. Might change my entire perspective. 🙂

nrhatch - March 19, 2018

I always liked milk better with Kahlua in it! 😀

Debra - March 20, 2018

Oh yes! 🙂

nrhatch - March 21, 2018

Or a Toasted Almond with Amaretto! 😀

I know it’s too late to wish you a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day; but today is the First Day of Spring. However, here in New York we’re being hit by a major Nor’easter. There’s heavy wind and snow. Here on Long Island, a 12 inch snowfall is predicted. It’s possible that some of my neighbors may go looking for that cow.

Happy First Day of Spring!

nrhatch - March 21, 2018

Hope that you survive Winter’s “last blast” . . .

Just remember, per the sages of yore ~> March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.

William D'Andrea - March 21, 2018

A lamb?
Bah! Bah! Bah!

14. Tiny - March 21, 2018

Hilarious! What a great teaching 🙂

Irish Whiskey + St. Paddy’s Day = Perfect Together!
