Irish Wisdom.................


98-year-old Mother Superior from Ireland was dying.

The nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her last journey
comfortable. They tried giving her some warm milk to drink but she
refused it.

One of the nuns took the glass back to the kitchen and remembering a
bottle of Irish Whiskey received as a gift the previous Christmas, she
opened it and poured a generous amount into the warm milk.

Back at Mother Superior's bed, she held the glass to her lips. Mother
drank a little, then a little more and before they knew it, she had
drank the whole glass down to the last drop.

"Mother," the nuns asked with earnest, "please give us some wisdom
before you die."

She raised herself up in bed and said, "Don't sell that cow."

If cows are contributing a lot to the damage of the environment by producing "special air", at least they have other advantages, as this cute story shows.
