Church Asides


I walked the older dogs around the Churchyard this afternoon.
Mary had already had her robust walk along the beach promenade so stayed at home with the Prof.
He was making pea and ham soup from scratch.
We've had peas soaking in the kitchen for days!
As we wandered up the Church path, St Michael's door burst open revealing the vicar in his full regalia, the morning service had just finished. George galloped up to him barking loudly.
" He's never seen a man in a frock before" I informed the vicar who laughed swishing his vestments.
I noted he was wearing new spectacles too!
Very trendy.

The soup was very nice by the way

  1. Did the vicar look relieved through his new specs when you said "He's never seen a man in a frock before."? :-)

  5. My mother and grandmother called that split pea soup. How I loved it, with little bits from the ham bone, and diced carrot bits. My entire family hates split pea soup, so I watch ham bones from family dinners disappearing for bean soup. What a waste.

  10. One should always be wary of men who swish their vestments.

  11. The pastor at the Lutheran church we used to go to (long story) would say "Well, time to put my dress on."

  12. Known as 'split pea soup' around here...one of my favourites!
    When I was an altar boy I LOVED wearing the required 'regalia' too!
