St. Ignatius Church offers free dinner for the public

Last week I gave you a riddle to solve. I should have asked you to call me if you thought you knew the answer, but I didn’t think of that last week.

Well, anyhow, here is the riddle again. “The person who makes it sells it. The person who buys it doesn’t use it. The person who uses it doesn’t know it. What is it?” And the answer is a casket!

Tuesday was election day, so I am writing the Luther News on Monday because I worked the election.

St. Ignatius Church invites everyone in town to a free dinner. Yep! I said free. It will be held on Tuesday, March 6, in the basement of the catholic church. The menu will be spaghetti, tossed salad, garlic toast, dessert and beverage. The time will be 5 to 7 p.m. Come and bring a friend or neighbor.

Once again, this dinner is free, and you don’t even have to bring a dish to pass! Heck of a deal. A happily married couple both in their 50s returned from a vacation in India where they purchased a brass Aladdin’s lamp with mysterious inscriptions. The wife decided to rub the lamp “for the fun of it.” ZAP! A genie appeared. “Yes, madam, what is your wish?” With anticipation she said, “I want an all-expenses-paid trip to all the exotic places in the world.” “Abracadabra. You have your wish.”

The husband couldn’t wait to ask his wish. He leaned over and whispered sheepishly, “Genie, I love my wife dearly, but I wish she was 30 years younger than me.” “Abracadabra. You have your wish sir. You are now 80 years old”

Be careful what you wish for. You might get it!

If you liked that story, you’re going to love this one.

An old fella went in to the Corvette dealer and after a bit, came out, got into a beautiful red Corvette and pulled out into traffic. He almost immediately got it up to 60 mph, then 80, then 100 mph. When he looked into his rear view mirror, he saw a state trooper behind him with his light going around and his siren blaring! Instead of slowing down, he took it up to 120 mph. Suddenly he realized he couldn’t outrun the trooper, so he slowed down and then stopped.

When the trooper reached his car, he said to the man. “Sir, I have 30 minutes left on my shift. If you can give me one good reason that I haven’t heard before, as to why you were driving so fast, I will not give you a ticket.” “Well,” the man said, “30 years ago my wife ran off with a state trooper, and when I saw you chasing me, I thought for sure it was him trying to bring her back.” The trooper tipped his hat and said “Have a nice day.”

On that note, I wish you a good week.
