You Couldn't Make It Up!

It was the harvest festival service at the Church this morning.
Chris left the house at 10am to go. I woke after just one hour's sleep at 10.15 when, John the next door neighbour started chipping away at some masonry on his cottage wall.
With a sigh I took the dogs out and as I returned I bumped into Auntie Gladys leaving the Church with Stan (Husband of Kit who is famous for making knitted slippers!)
Gladys has recently had eye surgery which must have worked wonders as she has recently increased her scone output to record levels..
I have been requested to drop by later, to collect a scone package!
Anyhow, 
Apparently the Church was full as parishioners from the two villages of Dyserth and Cwm attended the service, so I was glad I had given the carpets a good hoovering on Thursday morning.
There is nothing worse than letting the side down in front of other congregations.
I must say that the Church did look impressive for the harvest service, with food adorning every window and every available nook and cranny....
I asked Chris what he thought about it all.... and he agreed that everything looked rather splendid and beautifully laid out
"There was ONE thing I wasn't sure about!" he finally added

"I wasn't sure about the pot noodle on the font!"

A Cracking Line if ever I heard one

  8. "I wasn't sure about the pot noodle on the font!"

    Neither was any one else, it seems. Left for all to enjoy the visual.

  9. Just right for those who've popped in for a 'quickie'! - though as they're not especially nourishing for the body I doubt if they'll do much for the soul.

  10. I guess someone thinks it a blessing? I wonder how they harvest pot noodles though?

  13. In Genesis it doesn't say on which day The Lord created the pot noodle so perhaps it is the devil's work!

  14. Let's face it, they are a guilty pleasure. My view has always been nibble and let live.

  15. Love it! Somebody in Rhyl Homeless Centre or wherever the produce goes to will enjoy that a lot more than a ruddy great marrow.

  16. I have to admit John that, I can get thoroughly immersed in a pot noodle if there is nothing better to hand !! God works in mysterious ways sometimes !! Nothing wrong with a pot noodle once in a while. XXXX

  17. Nothing wrong with Pot Noodle. I'm sure when God is facing a heavy workload and has no time for a proper lunch, She surreptitiously scoffs a Pot Noodle or two.

  18. Never had one..........am I missing out?

  19. In China, dried noodles are handed out as payment to day labourers working at fixing road potholes and other damage. Each farmer in rural areas receive two to three days 'noodle work' on country roads each week during the winter season!

  20. I thought maybe you had been eating a pot noodle, when hoovering the church, and left it on the font ?!
