Somewhere in the farm country in the central Unites States, a new young priest was assigned his first parish.
Shortly after arriving he received a letter from the old priest at the next parish over, inviting him to dinner.
He arrived at the old priests house for dinner and knocked on the door. When the door opened his jaw dropped and his eye grew wide. A most beautiful curvy blonde lady in her 30's greeted him with a nice warm smile. Behind her was the old priest. As her entered the old priest took him aside and assured him that she was merely his housekeeper and no funny business was going on.
After dinner the young priest thanked him for having him over and told the old priest that he enjoyed the company and dinner very much.
A few days later the housekeeper told the old priest that ever since dinner that night, she could not find the silver gravy ladle that was on the table. The old priest looked for it, and not being able to find it wrote the young priest a letter.
The old priest wrote: I enjoyed having you over, but I have a concern. I am not saying you stole it, but since you came for dinner I have not been able to find my silver gray ladle.
A few days later, the old priest received a letter from the young priest saying:
I am not saying you are sleeping with your house keeper, but IF you would have slept in YOUR OWN bed you would have found it!!
