Over the Fence Chatter
No rant today. No screaming. Just a little chit chat among friends.
Of course since this is a blog and my blog at that I will do most of the chatting but you can join in on the comments.
I will be away from the computer most of the day because this is the last Wednesday summer pot luck at the church and we are making little pasties. That’s a two person job , you know. We are taking a bit of a risk because most of the people at the pot luck have never tasted a pasty. They might not like them and then we will feel bad.
I wonder why that is. They shouldn’t have to like pasties to make us feel good. If they bought one in an Upper Michigan restaurant and didn’t like it it wouldn’t bother us. Ah! But these will be our pasties. We created them.
Of course our church friends will probably say they like them even if they don’t. Part of the games people play. I think this one is called “ Don’t step there you’ll hurt their toes.”
But enough about pasties.
I got a long e-mail from my friend Al telling me how upset he is with me over the last two rants. Al is one of my liberal friends I think he sent me the original e-mail that touched off the verbal explosion. He is threatening never to send me another e-mail. He tried to explain how you can believe in free speech but still punish those who use it. He said as a Pastor I should understand that this was a moral issue. People can not be allowed to say things that get in the way of caring for the poor and the sick. I sent him back an e-mail that said I would be sorry if he stopped E-mailing me.
I started a new meme today you can see it here in the Fortress Hall of Stories. I didn’t know where else to put it. It does look like fun.
Maggie knows she isn’t supposed to be on the new couch but sneaks up and lies on it when she thinks we aren’t looking. As soon as she sees us she gets off. It’s man against dog and dog is winning. She is still doing the door thing. She cries to go out and then stands in the sliding door half out and half in. She knows we can’t shut the door while she stands there. I have never kicked a dog but if she does that when the temperature is below zero I will be tempted to move her out with a good kick to her rump. But then given my unstable condition I would probably fall and break something.
This week we have been cleaning. So far we have the big round table in the living/dining room area cleared off. You can’t believe the junk that table had accumulated.
I have to go and double check the pasty recipe .
Have a good day.
