  • Out to Pastor Nov.21, 2018: Kitty on the outside or tree frog on the inside


    I thought (which is a dangerous activity for me) that I had pulled one over on the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. It is a rare occasion when I actually do something like this.
    At my age, I assume I could get away with something. I guess I am just not old enough.
    Several weeks ago, I happened to look out the back window and saw a kitty walking across our back yard. A little idea sneaked into my head. Maybe I could get some kitty treats and feed the kitty.

  • 8,Out to Pastor Nov.15, 2018: Not everything in life is automatic


    Two days in the year I don’t like. Somebody is thinking it is my wife’s birthday and our wedding anniversary.
    I worked that out a long time ago. My birthday is two days before the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and our anniversary is three weeks after our birthday. No way can I forget that.

  • Out to Pastor Nov.8, 2018: Why did I ever grow up?


    At times, I have to do some errands for the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. It’s not that I like to do these errands, but I have learned this is one secret to getting along with her.
    The errand she had for me was to go to the Mall and pick up something she had ordered. In my own way I tried to finagle out of that errand, but the more I finagled the more insistent she was. So, I decided to finagle no more.

  • Out to Pastor Nov.1, 2018: I’m dreaming of a commercial-free world


    It was one of those really busy weeks where there was hardly enough time to breathe. For myself, I was glad the week was over and I could relax for the evening.
    “What do you want for supper?” The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage queried. “Do you want to go out for supper?”
    Going out for supper was the last thing on my mind.
    “No,” I said rather hesitatingly, “why don’t we just order a pizza and stay home tonight?”
