I should be upstairs helping the LOML with the packing, but I told her I needed my forum fix first. Then I'll go up and lend a hand, then take out the trash at the church, then send the secretary the bulletin information for next week, then pack my bag of stuff to do for goofing off this next week, and on and on and on.
I will be off the forum until next Sunday night or Monday. I trust that, while your father confessor is gone, you boys and girls will play nice. And, as always, don't talk about too much good stuff while I am gone. I love catching up, but it takes so darn long.
Well, in the morning we are off for a day in northern Illinois, then a few days in Iowa. Today I got a guest preacher for next Sunday, so I don't have to come back early. We will leave Iowa Sunday after church, stopping in Muscatine, Iowa for their great melons. We'll get home just in time to have to take Labor Day off. Darn! What luck!
I'll catch you all later.
Oh, our nice new used van -- Friday night, someone scratched "#####" in the passenger door, all the way down to metal. Before we leave in the morning I have to get the estimate for the police report. Then I use touch-up paint to cover until I can get back and get it into the body shop. When is it going to stop raining?
