A Few Thoughts

Wouldn't it be great if we could count on our Government to act better than the citizenry? I'm thinking of the Feds not allowing prisoner Paul Minor time out to go be with his dying wife. Mrs. Minor died Monday. What was the point of making sure he couldn't be with her?

For a happy Holy Week, listen to Home to Holly Springs by Jan Karon on audio CDs.
Lovely to hear Father Tim and his childhood friends speak. Scripture, beautiful quotes and Grace on a 10 CD set.

In the book, Karon writes about Father Tim, "He liked being in a place where everything from forgetfulness to homicide could be blamed on the heat." Holly Springs is a real town in north Mississippi.

From Mr.C, often quotable, "The difference between art and crafts is art makes a statement, crafts do not."

And from Suz, the Garage Sale Genius, about a poorly told story, " the E.O.H. is missing." (E.O.H. = element of humor).

I'll be AZ tomorrow looking at an unfamiliar desert world and seeing many of you. To those who won't be there, I'll miss you. Next year? Please say yes.

I'm sorry to be missing BE2! Have a great time.

And BTW, El Jefe agrees with Mr. C. He calls it "arts and craps".

I am writing OPI. I am suggesting the name Rev Gal Red. *grins*

Have a great time and hug everyone for me!!

Today's biggest decision (after I leave the office at noon): nail polish shade for pedi.

If there ever was a RevGal Red, i would surely wear it proudly.

See you tomorrow!

Friends, the color is OPI's HOT HOT HOT. What else would a RevGal wear?

Hat Tip to the Fashion RevGal Songbird.
