The Veterinarian


 One Sunday, in counting the money in the weekly offering, 
the pastor of a
small church found a pink envelope containing $1,000. 
It happened again the next week!

The following Sunday, he watched as the 
offering was collected and saw an
elderly woman put the distinctive pink 
envelope on the plate. This went on for weeks until the pastor, 
overcome by curiosity, approached her.


  "Ma'am, I couldn't help but notice that you put 

$1,000 a week in the

  collection plate," he stated.

"Why, yes," she replied, "every

  week my son sends me money, and I give some of it to the church."
 The pastor replied, "That's wonderful. 
But $1,000 is a lot; are you sure
 you can afford this? 
How much does he send you?"
 The elderly woman answered, "$10,000 a week."
The pastor was amazed. 
"Your son is very successful; 
what does he do for a living?"
"He is a veterinarian," she answered.
"That's an honorable profession, 
but I had no idea they made that much
money," the pastor said. "Where does he practice?"


  The woman answered proudly, "In Nevada
... He has two cat houses, one in Las Vegas ,
and one in Reno"

 Thanks Dan !

Herding cats is hard to do, but rewarding if you succeed.

Jackie, I just can't post a plain Feline Friday. I have to add "Silly".

I've been a 49er fan 33 years since I moved to Northern California. I've seen a lot of heartbreak and I've seen a lot to cheer about.

GO 49ers !!!
