Today… I got up and went to mass at a nearby parish. The pastor, it turns out, is a classmate of mine from my time in the seminary. Remember that? Yeah… Actually, he was a year or two behind me. He’s a pastor and I’m not yet a principal. What’s up there? Huh? Anyway, I didn’t really have time to visit with him and I wondered for the rest of the day if he had even recognized me after not having seen each other for over ten years. Oh well.
Drove out to Central PA to visit with another sister and her family. Along the way we stopped at a mall so I could attempt to replace my wife’s Croc’s which I had destroyed accidentally. “Put the stuff from the washer into the dryer,” she says… How was I supposed to know to take the Croc’s out first? No bother, her mom is now wearing them.
We arrived just in time for some swimming in the afternoon and then a quiet, relaxed evening.
