A man was brought to Sisters of Mercy Hospital, and taken quickly in for coronary surgery. The operation went well and, as the groggy man regained consciousness, he was reassured by a Nun from Sisters of Mercy, who was waiting by his bed.
'Mr. Smith, you're going to be just fine,' said the nun, gently patting his hand. 'We do need to know, however, how you intend to pay for your stay here. Are you covered by insurance?'
'No, I'm not,' the man whispered hoarsely.
'Can you pay in cash?' persisted the nun.
'I'm afraid I cannot, Sister.'
'Well, do you have any close relatives?' the nun essayed.
'Just my sister in New Mexico,' he volunteered. 'But she's a humble spinster nun.'
'Oh, I must correct you, Mr. Smith. Nuns are not 'spinsters;' they are married to God.'
'Wonderful,' said Smith. 'In that case, please send the bill to my brother-in-law.'
I take old Starbucks Drink Cups and turn them into Lamps
The warm panels are made from melting down old Starbucks drink cups, but it looks and feels like mica or some organic material. The wood in the lampshade and base is pulled from our 100 year old house in Astoria Oregon during a remodel, and it all comes together for a beautiful, classic look.

the world... nutty.
