Miscellaneous Updates

1. Most importantly, Max did come home the other night. He was on the loose for 40 hours, the longest yet. Since then, he's been pretty much a stay-at-home boy, eating nasty stuff on the premises rather than in the woods.

2. After Bayview Sound's appearance at the WAIF fundraiser last Saturday, we have instituted a new policy----if you're not going to pay us, okay, it's a donation, but we want letters for each of us stating that we have EACH donated $150 to their not-for-profit organization.

3. Trilogy's farewell performance was last night at Rockhopper's. I tried to embed it, but it was easier to put on my Facebook profile instead. I'll give you the link here. We sounded pretty good, I think. The crowd was small but enthusiastic, we made $30 which we blew on pizza and beer afterwards, and thus a chapter in my rock star life ends.

4. Today our service was an intergenerational event, dramatizing the story of "Old Turtle and The Broken Truth". It was truly wonderful and was capped off by a recognition of our RE teachers' contributions AND our annual Flower Communion. What a great day! We were packed to the rafters, quite unexpectedly, though new folks have been streaming in by the dozens, it seems. And many of them are staying!

5. I turn 67 tomorrow, June 8, at 3:55 p.m. Pacific Time (I don't think they'd invented Daylight Savings Time then, had they?). My friend Cynthia and I are going up to Christopher's to celebrate with an early dinner. My sister is gleeful----I am once again 2 years older than she, as she turned 65 in April and for a short few weeks, we were only a year apart, according to the way I figure things.

6. Life is good. And the Unbroken Truth is "You are Loved. And So are They."

I stopped singing when I was midway through college, no longer appearing either for madrigals or with the Charles River Valley Boys. It takes too much time, even though tenors are appreciated. Enjoy it until your church keeps you so busy that you have to limit the singing.

The United States adopted Daylight Savings Time in 1918, according to the Font of All Knowledge. So you see, there is something older than you. Maybe not rocks, dirt or the hills, but Daylight Savings Time is something, at any rate. :P

Thanks, Pixie. Joel, thanks for the history lesson---informative, if not exactly flattering!

Robin, I've tried a couple of ways to open the link and couldn't make it work.
