That was a great post!!!! Thanks for sharing!!
That woman is hilarious...she comes from a huge Irish family, and whenever she tells a story that involves a wedding or a wake, you know it is going to be funny!
A little off subject, but...spousal conflict can make one deviate from the subject on occasion...:)
One day, she told her husband she was going to make an apple pie. So, he went out and picked a bunch of apples off the tree in their front yard, and brought them to her. She didn’t want to use them because she already had apples in mind, and the ones he gave her were small and wormy looking. So they got into a big argument, and he left the house.
After he left, she took the bucket of apples out to the deck where their pet boxer was tied up, and began throwing the apples, one by one, over the stone wall at the back of the yard. Then she went in and made the pie with her own apples.
When her husband came home, he asked if the pie was done with his apples,and she said in a monosyllabic reply: “Yep.”
Her husband went out on the back deck and unhooked the boxer so it could run around the yard, and as soon as he let it loose, it took off, jumped over the wall and returned with an apple in its mouth. While her husband quizzically looked at the apple wondering where the dog got it (remember the tree is in the un-fenced front yard!) the dog turned, ran back over the wall, and returned with another apple...and another until he figured it out!
Hahahaha...ratted out by the dog!
