My last day on the worship team went well enough. I had permission to cut loose whenever I wanted, but we had someone on piano who doesn't know how to listen to the rest of the band and was determined to not give me any open spots to jam out.

Sermon series is "The Summer of Love" so they'll be pulling songs in from 1967 for the next few weeks. You need to plan your next western swing so you're here on a Sunday morning. I'd love to take you and Mrs Skip to church. You never know, I might even buy brunch for Mrs Skip.

I'm tired of shaving my head in the summer to hide my bald spot so I got a bandanna instead.

We have a friend that is supplying us with 3 dozen fresh, free range, bug eating, chicken eggs per week. I have about 2 dozen hard boiled eggs in a basket in the fridge right now.

A couple weeks ago the worship team at a church we are visiting finished with "Teach Your Children Well". Equally it was awesome.

This afternoon I installed brass spigots on our rain barrels. The day was young, so I tore off and installed four pieces of vinyl siding that had been warped by our grill being just a tad bit too close to the side of the house.

Who can explain a craving for synthetic cheese, orange dye, a crunchy spongelike matrix made mostly of air with a small quantity of, what? A "dough" of unknown parentage along with copious quantities of poisonous preservatives?

I used to grab a huge bag at convenience stores when gassing up on cross-country trips, slam them down as my lips, teeth, tongue and fingers (along with unseen internal organs) turned orange, and about halfway through the bag wonder, why?

I couldn't answer then.
I can't now.

When they call to me, I still heed the call.
