Last thing I read in a book was James Chapter 3. I closed my eyes prayed for a second and stuck my thumb in the Bible and there it was. Good advice that I don't follow often enough.

Also reading The Last Ivory Hunter by Peter Hathaway Capstick. That guy wrote some great books.

Truth Is Symphonic: Aspects of Christian Pluralism by H. U. von Balthasar

I would be interested in hearing about how Balthasar interacts with 20th-century discussions on pluralism within Catholicism.

Wouldn't know. Never saw the show. Someone brought the book home from da liberry and I read it. Did the clothes. Being a redneck guy, that took all of thirty seconds. We'll see what else happens.

Just watched a video of her folding clothes. She's cute as a button.

She is not ugly. Her american TV show annoys me.

Maybe I didnt give her a fair chance, though, because my wife became a super fan.

Just looked her up.
I see danger ahead, drax.

Don’t leave your wife alone in the house with your prized possessions ...

Good old pipes.
Old, aged tobacco.
Soft, old shirts.
Bloody, old hunting jackets.

Old anything, actually.

Come here when necessary with prayer requests, first for hope against hope (pointless, really, but it's a step we can’t skip).
Then for compassion and solace in your loss.

And when you have a minute, if you could let me know where your wife puts the trash, I could use a few things.
Thanks.

If any of you mention this she-devil to my wife there’s going to be hell to pay!

That's often the case here also. If my wife took up smoking a pipe and piddling around the workshop I'd probably look for new habits and hobbies.

Precisely. The first things on the chopping block were mine. My wife has a terribly hard time making decisions about her own things.

"Does this pipe bring you joy?" "Does this etching bring you joy?" "Do you need your great grandfather's things? You never use them, you know."

I lost my mind. Things were said which cant be unsaid. Her dusting habits were called into question and I asked her if she ever thought she'd be a size zero again and if not, I expected her to go through her own zederated closets. She was barred from touching my closets, drawers, and personal effects. I caught her looking at my books and I pantsed her, much to the delight of my daughters.

On the plus side, she finally threw out the Diaper Genie. It had a three year old fossilized poo in there. Quite the advertisement, really. It lived in a closet and nobody knew.

You're opening up some real stuff here, DAN. Taking me to a dark place, you know?

Yes, I am FINALLY reading them.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
I was wondering how long it would take to read through the series in a year. The answer is two chapters a day. It looks like, at your rate, you will finish by the end of February.
Perhaps.
