A pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won. He was so pleased with his donkey that he entered it a 2nd time and it won again. The local paper read: “PASTOR’S ASS OUT FRONT.” The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the Pastor not to enter the donkey in another race.
The next day, the local paper headline read: “BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTORS ASS.” This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the pastor to get rid of the donkey.
The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The local paper, upon hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day: “NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN.” The Bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10.
The next day the paper read: “NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10.” This was too much for the bishop so he ordered the nun to buy back her donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild. The next day the headlines read:”NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE.”
The bishop was buried the next day.
The moral of the story is – being concerned about public opinion can bring you grief and misery and even shorten your life. So be yourself and enjoy life.. You’ll be a lot happier and live longer.

Hey sweet friends! How did you do this past week? I was able to walk more thanks to having a gazillion errands to do during the week. By the time the week was over, I had done 6.63 miles. Not bad and I’ll take it. My hip is still bothering me but not as much so that’s a lot better. I’m still having to try to get back into the swing of things of making better food choices. That’s the most difficult thing at this moment. Well, that and this awful heat. Tell me it will be over soon please. I am so not the kind that will complain about the cold. I can take the cold. The heat no.
So my friends. How did you do this past week?
