HAPPY HALLOWEEN SAT.
A cabbie picks up a Nun.  She gets in the cab & notices the very handsome cab driver won*t stop staring at her.  She asks him why he is staring.  He says,*I have a question to ask, but I don*t want to offend you.* She: *My son, you can*t offend me. When you*re as old as I am and have been a nun as long as I have, you see & hear just about everything. I*m sure you could say or ask anything that I would not find offensive.*  Cabbie:  *Well, I*ve always had a fantasy to have a nun kiss me.*  Nun responds, *I only have to ask if you are single.* The excited cabbie says, *Yes, I*m single.*  *OK* says nun, *Pull into the next alley.*  She fulfills his fantasy with a kiss that would make a hooker blush.  They get back on the road and cabbie starts to cry. *My dear, why are you crying?* Cabbie: *Forgive me, but I*ve sinned & I must confess.  I*m married.*  The nun says, *That*s OK. My name is Kevin & I*m going to a Halloween party.*

Last Sat. a.m. Dick got up early, quietly dressed, made his lunch &  slipped into the garage.  He hooked up his pickup & boat & proceeded
to back out into a torrential down-pour. Wind was blowing 50 mph, so he pulled everything back into the garage, turned on the radio &
discovered the weather would be bad all day.   So he went back into the house, quietly undressed & slipped back into bed.  He cuddled
up to his wife*s back expectantly, & whispered, *The weather out there is terrible.*  His loving wife of 5 years replied, *And can you
believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?*   That*s when the fight started.
