On vacation

Two priests decided to go on vacation.

They were determined to make this a real vacation escape by not wearing anything that would identify them as clergy. As soon as the plane landed they headed for a store and bought some outrageous shorts, shirts and sandals.

The next morning they went to the beach dressed in their tourist garb.

They were sitting on beach chairs, enjoying a drink, the sunshine and the scenery when a woman came walking straight towards them.

As the woman passed them she smiled and said, 'Good Morning, Father. Good Morning, Father,' nodding and addressing each of them individually; then she passed on by.

They were both mortified! How in the world did she know they we're priests? So the next day, they went back to the store and bought even more outrageous outfits.

These were so loud you could hear them before you saw them. Once again, in their new attire, they settled on the beach in their chairs to enjoy the sunshine.

After a while, the same woman came walking toward them.

Again she nodded at each of them, she said, 'Good morning, Father. Good morning, Father,' and started to walk away.

One of the Priests couldn't stand it any longer and said, 'Just a minute young lady.'

'Yes, Father?' she said.
'We are priests and proud of it, but I have to know, how in the world did you know we are priests, dressed as we are?'

'Father, it's me, Sister Margaret.'

I will be on my annual vacation with my family at Hampton Beach in New Hampshire this week, so probably won't post too much. If you see me on the beach in my outrageous beachwear, it's okay to say hello!
