Today, our friend Father Peter told us about two of his parishoners.
They had been married many years. As was their custom, they were sitting on their back verandah, watching the sun set, having a quiet drink.
“I love you”, said the wife.
“That’s a lovely thing for you to say”, her husband said. “But how do I know that it’s not just the wine talking?”
“Oh”‘ replied his wife, “It’s definitely me talking – to the wine”
