The Lawyer & Pope go to Heaven

A lawyer died. At the same moment, the Pope also died. They arrived at the gates of heaven at the same moment. They spend the day in orientation, and as they're getting their heavenly vestments, the Pope gets a plain white toga and wings, like everyone else, and the lawyer gets much finer apparel, made of gold thread, and Gucci shoes.
Then, they get to see where they're going to live. The Pope gets what everyone else gets, a replica of a Holiday Inn room, and the lawyer gets an 18-room mansion with servants and a swimming pool. At dinnertime, the Pope receives the standard meal, a kosher TV dinner, but the lawyer receives a five-course meal including caviar, prime rib and chocolate truffles.
By this time, the lawyer is beginning to suspect that an error has been made, so he asks one of the angels in charge, "Has there been some kind of mistake? This guy was the Pope, and he gets what everyone else gets, and I'm just a lawyer and I'm getting the finest of everything?"
The angel replied, "No mistake, sir. We've had lots of Popes here, but you're the first lawyer we've ever had."

The Sheridan Community Chorus

Our next concert is on Friday, September 14, 2007 at 6:00 pm in Silver Creek, NY during the Grape Festival.
We will be singing 'The Spirit of America' in the center of the Village of Silver Creek near the gazebo. We would like to sing outside, so pray for good weather.
My plan is to have a rehearsal/Christmas Cantata kick-off at the beginning of September at Sheridan United Methodist Church.
How about a pot-luck dinner where we eat (my favorite hobby), watch the new Christmas cantata video, followed by a quick rehearsal of 'The Spirit of America' musical.
Good chance for us to socialize and invite new members!
What night of the week/weekend is good for you?
What night of the week is most convenient for you for our Christmas cantata rehearsals?
Got any ideas?
