The Collection Plate ~OR~ Rule 5 Woodsterman Style



One Sunday, in counting the money in the weekly offering, the pastor of a small church found a pink envelope containing $1,000.

This significant offering was repeated the next week.

The following Sunday, he watched as the offering was collected and observed an elderly woman place the distinctive pink
envelope on the collection plate; this went on for weeks until the pastor, overcome by curiosity, approached her. 

"Ma'am, I could not help but notice that every week you put $1,000 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 is wonderful. But $1,000 is a lot; are you sure you can continue this generosity? How much does he send you?"

The elderly parishioner answered, "$10,000 a week."    

The pastor was amazed. "Your son is obviously very successful.  What does he do for a living?"  
  
"He is a veterinarian," she answered, proudly.     

"That is an honorable profession, but I had no idea that animal doctors made that much money," the pastor said. "Where does he practice?"  

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