Father Brad?

Nope, not pregnant.

We opened a new bank account in a different bank last week, in preparation for our move. This morning, Brad went online to set up online banking and got a little surprise. When he opened up his account information, he saw that instead of saying Mr. Bradley H. Pass, it said, " Bishop Bradley H. Pass." Apparently, the woman who entered the information had clicked on the wrong thing. Huh. It was pretty funny. So Brad called up the bank and spoke with this woman. She apologized profusely and said she would set it right.

Later on, she called back on the brink of tears, and said that, unfortunately, she had not corrected it in time and that we are going to be getting checks and a debit card with the name "Bishop Bradley Pass." YESSSSS!!! That is SO cool. Maybe we can get a little collar and go out on the town and get discounts.

You know, I always KNEW I would be married to a clergyman someday.

For those of you who were expecting a more serious post today, well, it's not to be. Perhaps in the future...But I do thank you all for all the support and prayers, and cards. They have certainly upheld us through this season of remembrance and reflection. It's been a beautiful day. Things are looking up. There are good things happening, and more good to come.

I think Brad would look cool in a clerical collar.

But, can bishops give absolution? "Father Bradley, I have sinned. Forgive me". And since Brad is a close personal friend of mine, I think I could do quite well :) lol...

Ha, I'm glad you stated nope, not pregnant as the very first line because you knew what people would be thinking right off. And i'm just glad that it was a nice day up there because that's what I was praying for :)

Yes, Ryu, bishops are first deacons, then priests, before they are consecrated bishops, so they can still hear confessions and grant absolution.

I can't wait to see what Brad looks like in ecclesiastical purple! :)

Ha ha, that's pretty funny! Especially since I can actually visualize Brad in a clerical collar. 'Course, he'd probably be on the young side for a bishop, but who's gonna know? :-)

Very funny! Brad's father was telling me about that yesterday.
Trust your trip goes well.

How do those spammers do it, I ask you?

Umm, with the "wident" option, that gets rid of bots, so it is a real human.

I found it rather amusing myself, but then I have a porkchop fetish, so don't give my weight any opinion :)
