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'm listening to Etta James, Sunday Kind of Love, and you are not.

That is all.
I played some Etta earlier today. Now I'm letting Mel Torme calm me down from the day I've had.
The ole Velvet Fog should get it done.

Not that I care, of course.

A reunion of the two is the first thing I thought of when I saw the news about Harry's passing.

I filed our federal tax return tonight, with 31 minutes to spare. And then found out that IRS extended the deadline to midnight of the 18th. Bummer.

TNLP and I had a spat back in 2015 over fried potatoes. He thinks waffle fries are an acceptable form of fried potatoes and I can't stand them. We've never really resolved that issue and he's quick to bring it up every time we disagree about anything else. Maybe coco could counsel us.

It's not about the nail.
They're two different things. Seriously. Who could ever consider waffle fries as even an unacceptable form of fried potatoes?
OK, you lost me with your quadrupedal negative. Do you like waffle fries or not?
Quadruple? Dude, just because you're in one of "those states" doesn't mean you have to stay crazy all the time. And it isn't even noon yet for you, right?
You have asked for my counsel: Waffle fried are freakin' awesome.
I knew it. You guys always take his side.
We're done here.

I wish that I could know God like Elijah did. And be as obedient as Elijah was.

With all due respect to Harry Anderson, Mel Torme?
Hope I never get that old.

Today I made a jig for cutting the 22 1/2 degrees miter cuts for my flag display boxes.

I’ve been contacted by a potential client wanting an estimate for a shadow box.

I also put a deposit on a couple of silver poplar slabs for a bar and desk in my den.

I'm glad I didn't post a rude reply to comment posted by another member. I'll be even more thankful in the morning. Thank you Lord.
