Re: what are you reading?


Oh, Franciscan - the bunch named after my patron saint!  Then Sisters of
Mercy in college!  Yes, they were an interesting group and I did receive a
great education from them - one of the few who never got whacked by them
too!  But then I was always the teacher's pet since my parents donated much
time and money - I would like to think it was also because I was smart.
Like Pam, seeing myself in a convent would be hysterical - sorta the
Catholic version of Private Benjamin!  Of course I DO love to wear black all
the time . . . hmmmmmmm.  But they really can't keep pets and gardens are
usually communal type affairs with the ones I knew.  Fran

Which ones did you have?  I had Dominicans first, then Sisters of
Providence.  Most were wonderful caring, lovely people and good teachers.
Not all, but by far I am glad I had nuns for teachers.....except for that
humility thing.
