I'm not sure what's going on here. I'm comfortable with this to a certain extent. Not fully, but mostly.

Great estate sales this morning. We hit the road early drenched in bug repellant (outdoor sales, Deep South, July, etc.), clutching coffee mugs and jingling with small bills and change. Many sales this weekend because it's end-of-the-month. EOM translates to people moving, sellers knowing that people just got paid and the sad one: people needing rent money. I'm afraid we don't help the rent money people much because they've hit bottom before and have little to sell. The misery index is high at those sales.

Purchases: 1940's Cowboy China Plate looks like a Roy Roger's piece of China but is unmarked
Odd electrical lamp for collection of lamps behind my dining room table
Funky wooden shelf to be re-painted
large brass Christmas decoration bells for the kittens to bat around
sterling silver peacock ring
large silverplate sugar bowl and creamer, may have been re-plated which
might explain it's odd patina. Will be used for cut flowers

Things going ok with you? I noticed that NO ONE took me up on the offer to preach at the church during the NO A/C Weeks. Eeek!
I hope my sermon on Genesis 32/Jacob Wrestling will go well in hot weather.

I have a very weird feeling being here at home, yet on vacation, and not needing to be at church in the morning. I almost wish I were preaching about Jacob...almost!

I'll preach for you. I just need to pack up some things, and start walking,. I should be there for Christmas.

PPB, Let me drive up and get you in the little car. I'll be there by September!
Aola, I don't know what is going on. I attempted to load a quiz on the blog early Sat. morning and all rats blast ensued!

The blog is still acting funny. It deleted a previous post and the comment button is invisible...

Insofar as preaching in the no-AC weeks, you know that the turnabout is coming up and preaching when there's an ice storm and no heat!

it's cooled down where we are very much... thank goodness.

Tell you what, St C...we'll do a pulpit swap. I'm on next Sunday at 10.00...:-)

Sounds like your estate sale-ing went well. Aren't you sensitive to the needs of some of the sellers? It could be heart-breaking. But better some money from you than the trash heap. Thanks for your comments on my blog -- I think everyone could use a little dose of CPE as a reality check. Today I preached in the hospital chapel (yes, it's air-conditioned), and now I see that I have the choice to exegete Judges or 1 Thess. for my ordination exams next month (27 days from now). Suggestions? Take care....

Thanks for your suggestions. I graded ords a million years ago too, you would think that would make me more confident.... This world is getting smaller all the time! And thanks for the advice!
