Mice Are Jerks!

Our pastor told this story as part of the sermon today. I told Ellen later that the point of the sermon was "Mice are Jerks!".

In other news, I was stiff today from too much ladder climbing yesterday. I cleaned out the gutters, installed some gutter guards to try to lessen/eliminate leaf buildup since most of the leaves were still on our locust tree, and also got Halloween decorations taken up to the attic. So, a lot of climbing.

This afternoon Ellen and I went to Normal for Kathy's choir concert. The concert was fine, especially Kathy's choir. I get to nitpick other choirs -- the solists in the men's glee were flat and the arrangement of "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" was one I didn't care for, but at least we didn't have bad scat singing from a lame show choir at this concert.

Tomorrow: D&D - maybe. So far I've only seen that we have three players and we need four.

  • Sounds like the Cliffhanger needs to get his priorities in order...

    Survival > Delicious Strawberry

    ...of course, maybe I just missed the point. :)

  • Western minds like ours probably have trouble wrapping themselves around the zen story. It's pretty similar to "stop and smell the roses". Just ... strawberries.

    The readings, by the way, were from Ecclesiastes 3 (or, alternatively, The Byrds :-) ), and a very similar reading from the Tao te Ching. If that helps. The sermon text isn't up on the web yet.

  • It probably also helps in some ways to know that our pastor, Gary, was baptizing his own grandson that morning.

  • I figured it was something like that. Good to know the context, though. :)
