That's because it is a riddle, to wit --

Las Vegas Churches accept gambling chips.

This may come as a surprise to you, if you don’t live in Las Vegas, but there are more Catholic churches than casinos.  Not surprisingly, some worshippers at Sunday Services will give casino chips rather than cash when the collection plate is passed.

Since they get chips fom many different casinos, the churches have devised a method to convert the offerings.  The churches send all their collected chips to a nearby Franciscan monastary for sorting, and then the chips are taken to the casinos of origin and cashed in. 

                   Who is this done by? Answer below.


Lately Pepper has been in egg laying mode, wherein she gets into her waste basket, hereinafter called "The Bucket". It has a ladder for her to get up and down.   While she is there she condones no intrusions whatever.  Ever hear a bird snarl?

But this time it's a bit different.  Some days she is in The Bucket; some days, no.  Like today.  She is all over me.  Wants her head rubbed.  NOW!  Oh, well, this, too, shall pass.

  1. Never heard a bird snarl. Cats and dog. Not the current cat, though. She's so lovey. But other cats.
