Of course there are people
who like to think of Sun
day as a day of peace and
meditation ? church bells

the Sabbath. Statistics
show that to eighty-eight
out of every hundred wives
Sunday morning is just a
convenient time to ap
proach the lesser half with
the honeyed words "Dear,
would you mind looking
over my bank balance and
my check stubs and seeing
what's wrong?" And there's
usually a lot that's wrong.

lauirhter from Gladys and Zoe).
