Default My mother-in-law got the surprise and shock of her life...!

Hi Gordon,

I get religious visitors too...

Which reminds me of a funny (or possibly terrifying) story...!

My mother-in-law is an immigrant to Australia... actually a war refugee... and during her early years in Australia she didn't speak English so well...

One day, a couple of well-dressed young men came to her door...

Not knowing much English, but not wanting to be impolite, she listened to what they said, and smiled and nodded a lot... Not really understanding much of what they were saying at all!

Apparently she had agreed to go with them... So she went along (being polite)... and they took her to a building...

Where she unknowingly got baptized as a Mormon!

(She's actually Catholic...)

You could imagine some could be angry or shocked at being "surreptitiously" baptized into another religion!

...But she just laughs about it...

Best wishes,

So, yesterday, in the mail...UGLY hand written envelope hard to read return addy...and so I excitedly opened it.... to find a JEHOVA'S WITNESS pitch, with little flier, note, and ... they got me to open it...but it was sorted into the bin file.

Even good UGLY has to have some beauty for me in it.
