Oh by the way, folks,
Today we express our appreciation for an idea whose time has come. Instead of handing out candy for Halloween, hand out letters telling children they're fat.
As we've done for the last few years, we just leave the lights off and refuse to participate. Maybe we'll go out dining or something like that.
One of the occupational hazards of Halloween, for us at least, is that we sorta help ourselves to a share of the sugar-laden crap we're handing out to the kiddies. So we're better off not indulging.
Well anyhow, last night's church pot luck dinner was 17 people including both preachers. The presento afterwards was a re-enactment of what some scholars think the Holy Communion service mighta been during the First and Second Centuries. Unfortunately, there's disappointingly slim evidence to base it on.
Yesterday a few bits of my varnish job weren't quite ready for the second coat, so I'll try again today. I'm pretty sure it'll be okay.
