Oh by the way, folks,
Today we make fun of the delusional notion that you've gotta be afraid of going to hell in order to become a saint. I'd say something about that, but I think Herb Silverman, the Candidate Without a Prayer, said it better than I ever could. When someone asked him, since he doesn't believe in God, what's to keep him from going around doing all sorts of evil, he answered, "If that's your attitude I hope you keep on believing in God!"
Yesterday church had an awful thin congregation. Then a whole bunch more folks strolled in an hour late because they had forgotten about the semi-annual clock-setting mystic ritual.
Then the rest of the day was very nice. Nothing happened.
I got my drivers license renewal form in the mail. We can now renew our drivers licenses by mail, and all I've gotta do is have the vision testimony signed off by my eye doctor, and since my next eye doctor apptment is next week anyhow, that'll be a snap.
Not only that, but the new drivers license lasts 8 years instead of 5 years. In 8 years I'll be 78, and if family history is any indicator, at age 78 I'll be too senile to drive anyhow, so this drivers license renewal may very well be my last one ever!
And so today it looks like nothing's gonna happen.
