Delicious lunacy. I can tell you had great fun reading this. I love the deliberate understatements – air-conditioned drapes, being my favourite. One little presentation point – I suspect the narrative would flow better with an additional line break before each new bulletin announcement.

I love the kind of smile this grand story gave me as read it. It's one of those lingering smiles I'm sure I'll be carring with me for days to come. Excellent job and God bless.
Love it! Too funny!
I don't often laugh out loud when reading entries, but the fruitcake paragraph did me in!

This one I will forward to my pastor who I imagine could use a little bit more humor in his job too. Wonderfuly written.

I laughed out loud. I could imagine the pastor's tongue set firmly in his cheek as he wrote these newsletters. Very well done! Thanks for sharing it.

I'm still smiling. You did an awesome job, and I enjoyed it very much. I loved the "exraordinary" fruit cake. An original, take on the topic.
There were so many cute lines in this. Very fun entry and loved the pastor's cheeky personality. :)

This was hilarious! I'm glad I didn't miss reading it, thanks to deboggy's links. I especially loved the part with the kitten. I love all cats :) and thought that piece was cute along with the title. Good job and congrats on your win.

This is hilarious. Enjoyed reading it.
I love how you write Betty! The dry humor of the Pastor was perfect for his weekly address to the congregation. Well done and congratulations my friend!
I loved reading this again. Your humor is such fun to read. My favorite picture was the poor preacher's wife drunk on the fruit cake. This was truly deserving of first place.

What a long-suffering pastor! This is such a delightful window into parish life---it would make a great idea for a tv movie.

Thank you for leaving a comment on my Christmas Eve story. I'm so glad you liked it.
