Church last night
was good. We had 25 kids and half that many adults. I took chicken and two cakes which was fortuitous as they only had chips and cookies. Sister Joyce commented that I made my own birthday cake. I told her with only guys in the family, I was used to that. We had chocolate and French vanilla cake with frosting courtesy of Aunt Helen as I was out of both frosting and powdered sugar.
Robert had a good time, which has not been the case in recent Wednesday night meetings. When we ate, he sat with Brother Jerry and Brother Daryl. Jerry took note that Robert went back for thirds on the chicken and chips.
And, Helen, I have great news for you. Sister Joyce is already working on the 2017 Christmas play. She says we are all going to be hillbillies. She was all excited and already writing it in her head. Of course, that is where it always gets written and mostly stays there. The paper version is much less grand than her imagination. I just can't wait.
Oh, and on the way there and back we saw a coyote and 3 raccoons. They were not babies and not adults. Robert said they were teenagers.
Tomorrow is go home early day.
Today is Jackie's birthday, 34 years ago, and 3 years gone.
