Oh, so very enjoyable! I remember the chat session, though I've forgotten the topic.

I remember being taught sewing in high school by Sister Mary Cecilia, who hailed from Australia. As she explained the basics, she announced, 'The thimble goes on the middle finger."

It's not every day you get flipped off by a nun in full, traditional habit.  We nearly asphyxiated on stifled laughter.

If only I had a camera...
"Loss and possession, death and life are one, There falls no shadow where there shines no sun."

Hilaire Belloc

Elkhound

In "The Mind of the Maker", Dorothy L. Sayers quoted a line from a poem she heard in Sunday School, about the Crossing of the Jordan:

"The flashing torrent, leaping in the air
Left the astounded river's bottom bare."

She said that she didn't remember who the poet was, or any of the rest of it, but consider what reaction you'd get reading those lines out before a class of eleven-year-old children!

Thank you Desert Rose, Evie, Jerusha, Revanne, Aerlys, and Elkhound. I love the little faux-pas in life. Humor is always the best medicine. And a good laugh is worth its weight in gold.
May your horses have wings and fly!
