THIS IS OUR FIRST MONDAY SALE OF THE SEASON. WE WILL CONTINUE HAVING MONDAY SALES, IN ADDITION TO OUR THURSDAY SALES, THROUGH THE END OF APRIL.

Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her 80s, and had never been married. She was always admired for her kindness and sweetness to all. One afternoon the pastor came over to visit her, and she showed him to a quiant sitting room. She invited him to sit while she prepared the tea. As he sat facing her old pump organ, the young pastor noticed a fancy bowl sitting on top. The bowl was filled with water, and in the water, out of all things, floated a condom! When she returned with the tea and scones, they began to chat. The preacher, tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and he could no longer resist.

*Miss Beatrice, I wonder if you would tell me about this* he said pointing at the bowl.
*Oh yes,* she replied. *Isn*t it wonderful? I was walking through the park a few months ago and I found this little packet on the ground. The directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wetand that it would prevent the spread of disease. Do you know that I haven*t had the flu all winter!*

The pastor fainted.

John is having a bad day. He tried to button his shirt, and the button fell off. He picked up his briefcase and the handle fell off. He tried to open the door, and the doorknob fell off. Now he's scared to pee.
