The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

I just applied for a job in Coppell, TX.
Let me know if you get it.
I live pretty close to there.
We seriously need a Texas meetup.

Three years before dinosaurs got feathers, Del visited my cave. Hold on. Ok 3 and half years, tops. Anyway. Over calming coals as the others in the cave begged off for rest, Del and I were able to speak softly yet, honestly.

He told me a story of one of his progeny that enjoyed taking a regularly purposed VA pipe and running a bowl or two of English through it for the flavor.

I am doing that now.

Thanks to Del’s proginy; whose name I can’t recall.

I duck hunted in it, both Fri and Sat. Froze my ass. I'm almost getting too old for that, I keep telling myself.

Still sitting here waiting at the tire store. Been 40 mins. I shouldn't have paid them first.
