A PATCHWORK OF THOUGHTS
I've "got the duty" this weekend, as Big J would say. That is, it's my homily weekend so I'll be doing the preaching at all the masses at our parish. As an added bonus we're also doing baptisms after 11:00 AM mass on Sunday.
H2 starts working 12 hour shifts this weekend. It's part of the NOPD push to get more officers on the streets during the summer months. It'll make for some long days, but the pay should be good.
Fr. Deo is in New Orleans "for the foreseeable future"!! We're excited! Can hardly wait to get together. It is always such a pleasure to be with him. Once he's totally finished with his PhD studies in Rome he will be returning to NOLA to teach at the seminary.
Having been to Uganda twice, I can say with some certainty that electrical power is an "on again/off again" affair. Fr. Godfrey, who is in Uganda, is trying to install solar panels in the rectory of his new parish. He has it mostly done, but is about $900 short of completing the project. Linda has begun fundraising efforts, and has a pledge of $200 from one of the Catholic women's groups in the parish. If anyone would like to contribute $1, or $5, or $10... let us know. We will accept all donations, and consolidate into one large gift for Fr. Godfrey's parish. I would also encourage prayers for the success of his project.
Maynard is a really sweet dog. Lately he's been demanding a lot of attention, though. He can't seem to get enough "lovin'". I think he might be a little bit spoiled.
Got to run now. It's almost lunch time and we're going to the Mediterranean Cafe on N. Carrollton Avenue. Hoping for some good baba ganoush!!
Update:Mediterranean Cafe was closed. We went to Mona's Restaurant instead.
Take care, and God bless!!
