On a lighter note
A man who was an avid golfer finally got a once in a lifetime chance for an audience with the Pope. After standing in line for hours, he got to the Pope and said, “Holiness, I have a question that only you can answer. You see, I love golf, and I feel a real need to know if there is a golf course in heaven. Can you tell me if there is?”
The Pope considered for a moment, and replied, “I do not know the answer to your question, my son, but I will talk to God and get back with you.”
The next day, the man is called for another audience with the Pope to receive the answer to his question. He stood before the Pope, who said, “My son, I have some good news and some bad news in relation to your question. The good news is that heaven has the most fabulous golf course that you could imagine and is in eternally perfect shape. It puts all courses on earth to shame…”
“The bad news is that you tee-off tomorrow morning.”
Several times recently it has been found that the porch doors have not been properly locked (on one occasion the outer porch door was left ajar) – and/or that the Alarm hasn’t been set.
Would all key holders please ensure that both doors in the “old” porch and the “new” porch have been locked – and the alarm is activated. Thank you for your co-operation.
