Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you.

I found this funny anecdote and I thought I would share it with you... Enjoy!

An English schoolteacher was looking for rooms in Switzerland. She called upon the local schoolmaster to help her find an apartment that would be suitable. Such rooms were found, and she returned to London for her belongings. She remembered that she had not noticed a bathroom, or as she called it, "a water closet." She wrote to the schoolmaster and asked if there was a "W.C." in or near the apartment.

The schoolmaster, not knowing the English expression, was puzzled by the "W.C.", never dreaming that she was talking about a bathroom. He finally sought advice from the parish priest. They concluded that she must mean a Wayside Chapel. The lady received the following letter a few days later.

Dear Madam:

The W.C. is located 9 miles from the house, in the heart of a beautiful grove of trees. It will seat 150 people at one time, and is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Some people bring their lunch and make a day of it. On Thursdays there is an organ accompaniment. The acoustics are very good. The slightest sound can be heard by everyone. It may interest you to know that my daughter met her husband at the W.C.. We are now in the process of taking donations to purchase plush seats. We feel that this is a long-felt need, as the present seats have holes in them.

My Wife, being rather delicate, hasn't been able to attend regularly. It has been six months since she last went. Naturally, it pains her not to be able to go more often.

I will close now with the desire to accommodate you in every way possible, and will be happy to save you a seat either down front or near the door, as you prefer.


LOL!! I hope you enjoyed this story...LOL!


GOD Bless You!

Ray,
Thank you! I loved this story so much! I love humor and this made me laugh so hard.

I have been to Switzerland as well, it is so beautiful. I love it! My family and I live in Belgium because my huband is in the military. So travel is really good for us. It is wonderful to be able to see so many different counries so close to one another.
My daughter was able to go to a Chruch youth retreat in Switzerland. She loved it!! I wish everyone had the opportunity to travel the world.
Thank you for stoppong by. I hope you come back.

In service for JESUS,
Donna

Heresy Today,
We are hoping that one day we will visit the Holy Land, but if not, one day we will be in the HOLIEST land forever with GOD HIMSELF! Oh I can not wait!

I hope you and your wife will be able to see the places you dream of. GOD Bless You and yours!

Your sister in CHRIST,
Donna
