Cleanliness Is Next to Impossible


Thank God for dirty dishes,
they have a tale to tell;
while others may go hungry,
we're eating very well.

This post is written in memory of my dishwasher that expired Thanksgiving Eve - and oh, what a treat it has been (dish pan hands, et al). I've been thinking of getting me one of the above to start doing my dishes; however, I think getting the machine fixed may be less expensive in the long run than the costs for dog food and doggie supplies.

Reminds me of this old joke:

A priest was asked to dinner by one of his parishoners who he knew as being an unkempt housekeeper. When he sat down at the table, he noticed that the dishes were the dirtiest that he had ever seen in his life.

"Were these dishes ever washed?" he asked his hostess, running his fingers over the grit and grime.

She replied, "They're as clean as soap and water could get them".

He felt a bit apprehensive but blessed the food anyway and started eating. It was really delicious and he said so, despite the dirty dishes.

When dinner was over, the hostess took the dishes outside and barked "Here Soap! Here Water!"

Kids, don't try this at home!!!

Nothing wroong there, just washing the dishes with Cold Water. Quite a hound.
