time is flying. Well, this week I turned around and it was Thursday afternoon
so nothing has changed; before we know it the trees will be bare and well be
gathering for Thanksgiving. Please pray for me.
Your pastor is an
idiot. Here's why: I still say in touch with the cats over in the
Bottoms, or as you call it, Franklinton.
the other day my friend Sully of Sullivant Avenue was in hot pursuit
of a low flying dove. The bird could not fly more than a few feet and both
the bird and Sully ended up in front of and under Father's car. Father
slammed on his brakes and the bird walked out and Sully resumed his pursuit
until St. Francis" chased him off; then tried to shoo the bird
away. Father chased the bird for half a block and then came back and
chased Sully away. Then he sat in his car for five minutes until
Sully went off in other pursuits. I'm sure the doves that read
this are thrilled. Sully is in therapy. If I could get into the
freezer I would at least eat a dove bar.
