It's All About Me
I don’t know how many of you noticed but on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday I didn’t close this blog in the usual way. There was no summary of the day’s dull activities , no I need a breathing treatment, and no GBYA. The reason for that is that I was very sick. I spent most of those days in bed or in the bathroom. I had diarrhea , upset stomach and my breathing was so bad I had to carry oxygen all the time. I missed my soaps ( well not on Saturday and Sunday) Church, and being with Betty when she had her eye surgery. I was able to get to the computer room in the early morning and get the blog entry out but that was it.
Aside from the breathing problems this is something I go through about every two or three months. We think it has something to do with my hernia. The doctors don’t want to operate on it because of my lungs. So I live with it.
But it was not all bad. During this period I won two million dollars in a European contest I never entered, had a Mr. Wang Guangtao, Minister of construction of the People‘s Republic of China ,ask for my help in handling lots and lots of construction money, and was asked to handle the giving away to eradicate poverty over two million dollars by World Vision UK. Am I a lucky guy or what ?
Still I sit here as poor as ever and still slightly sick to my stomach.
Today the dog has surgery to change it from a her to an it and to fix a hernia she was born with. I hope that goes well.
If I feel well enough it is back to working in the basement.
@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and the answer is here.-It came on the morning mail train. It went from the Post Office to the Church where it sat on the Pastor’s desk until the Chairman of the congregation stopped in . It was the official reply of Pastor Castle. In the proper official language she said that with much prayer for the will of God she was accepting the call to Last Lutheran. She would begin her official ministry on the second Sunday in August. The chairman knew all this before opening and reading the document. She had called him last night and they had begun making plans for her to move into the parsonage. She didn’t have a lot of furniture so they decided that to save the parish moving costs the Parish would borrow a Baumen Egg Truck and send a couple of men from the Building Committee to move her furniture. They joked that they would treat her furniture like eggs. She also said that even though her ministry didn’t officially start until the second Sunday in August that she would be willing to take care of parish needs like funerals.
In a town like Pigeon Falls news of such importance moves quickly. Nancy soon had people coming into her coffee shop and wondering what this meant to Last Lutheran. Several people talked of leaving. They could go to the Baptist Church. It’s new Pastor wouldn’t even let women read the lessons on Sunday morning. The only other choice was the Catholic Church. It allowed no women in the priesthood.
Today's Link-(queenepeachie)- If you like poetry that's what she does. Leave a poetic Dr. John in the comment. ( read the one below today's entry as well . It's worth it.
AI had a pretty good day. I watched my soaps. I visited the last of my active links. I took a picture of the Priceless Prize for tomorrow. We still haven't mailed the prize from two Fridays ago because I've been sick and Betty had surgery so there was nobody to drive it to the Post Office. It is all wrapped up and addressed so soon. Last Friday's Ble Hipp can't go because we still don't have an address. Now I need a breathing treatment.
