Fond Memories and a Joke From Joe

I've been missing Koshimi lately and dug up this photo from last August when we drove up to the wine country in Northern California. Here we are amid the vineyards at Ledson Winery in Sonoma. Sheldon was just five months old, and was nearly the same size as Shimi. I remember this day as if it were yesterday. We had so much fun with both dogs. This particular day we went to Ledson to enjoy some wine and for lunch. I'm so happy we stopped for this photo. Sheldon and Shimi had so much fun running through the vineyards and looking at the grapes nearing harvest time. Fond memories indeed.

By the way, I sure had a lot of fun with my "What Movie is This?" posts the past two days. I want to thank to everyone who left a comment or sent me an e-mail with their guesses to the film titles. Either I picked really easy films, or y'all just know your 80's movies! I'll try that again sometime. OK so now here's a little joke that my brother Joe sent to me. I should warn you- if you are very religious or a strict Catholic, skip over this joke.
Hope you have a great Wednesday. Now here's my brother Joe's little joke:

While driving home, a neighborhood priest saw a Nun walking along the road, and decided to offer her a lift.

The Nun got in the car, sat down and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg, causing the priest to nearly have an accident

After regaining control of the car, the priest steadily slid his hand up her leg. The Nun said: "Father, remember Psalm 129?" The priest removed his hand.

But changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again.
The Nun once again said, "Father, remember Psalm 129"

The priest apologized and said "Sorry Sister, but the flesh is weak"

Arriving at the convent, the Nun sighed heavily and went on her way.

On his arrival at the chursh, the priest rushed to his Bible to look up Psalm 129.

It said, 'Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory."

Moral of the story:
If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.

I'm surprised that the winery didn't mind having dogs running around.

I'm Catholic but don't mind a joke about a horny nun once in a while.

Sweet memories from Sonoma. BTW, the last time we were there was during Dog Weekend at Sabastiani. Lots of people had their dogs there-- the dogs played games and got treats. We walked around (we LOVE Sonoma!) and petted the dogs and talked to the owners. Nice memories, indeed.

LOL-- I am pretty religious, but my husband is very knowledgeable on the Bible. Next time he puts his hand on my leg, I will have to pull this on him!

You posted that picture for us to see-- I love it because I can feel the sunshine and the kind of day you were having. I'm sure Shimi is doing good works from where he is! //hugs//

I know that feeling of missing oine of your dear departed four footed pals....It's great that you have so many dear pictures of him and the fun memories to go with it...!

Biddie said...

Lol at the joke. I will have to read this one to Shawn later.
You miss still miss Shimi soo much. Dogs are so much more than pets. SO much more.

You know, those memories are so powerful, strong, like they happened just yesterday. My father passed away 15 years ago tomorrow and it's as real today as it was that day. Thinking of you.

grace said...

that picture is precious. I am so glad you stopped for the photo aswell, to have that to look upon.

lol on your joke!


Great joke..I wonder how my Catholic Grandma would feel about it?

I'm glad you have held onto the memories and I'm sure it's still so difficult.

I missed your movie post and am so bummed...I TOTALLY knew it was Mannequin..LOVED THAT MOVIE!! Remember the security officer with his dog?

I think I'll go put in Splash.

Happy belated St Patricks Day Rick to you and your family.
Koshimi you're missed.

Olivia said...

You will always have those little flashbacks of him.

Okay, I'd like to tell you that as time goes by you might him less, but if he was THAT special dog--you know, the one dog above all others--then you might always miss him. Least, I still miss my Samantha and it's over three years.
