GROANERS & SHAGGY PUPPY STORIES
In the olden days itinerant preachers would stay quite busy making
the rounds of small communities that had a church but couldn't
support a full-time pastor of their own. It was not unusual for a
busy minister to perform Sunday services in perhaps 5 or 6 little
churches scattered up and down a populated valley. One particular
clergyman was quite popular with his various congregations and thus
he not only stayed busy all day on Sundays, but was quite often
called in on weekdays to preside over baptisms, weddings and funerals
at odd hours of the day and night. As a faithful man of the cloth he
did his best to accommodate all such requests within reason, but had
a curious aversion to holding funeral services on any day before
noon. In turning down requests to preside over somber grave side
ceremonies too early in the day he merely explained, "I'm just not a
mourning parson." (Gary Hallock)
