Good Friday

Just a quick post today because I have much to do in a short time.

First, it's a beautiful day here, perfect weather. The sun is shining, the temperature is in the 70s, there's hardly a breath of wind for a change. I think this is the kind of day mail carriers pray for!

Today is Good Friday, the observation of Christ's crucifixion. Tonight will be the Stations of the Cross service at my church. Last night was the Maundy Thursday communion service. These two services are among the most important in the Christian faith, at least in my perspective (and countless others). Without this, without Christ's death, there would be no Easter. There would be no faith.

On a more worldly note, it is a very good Friday because the Vietnam Veterans just did a donation pickup. I just happened to be stepping out my front door as their truck arrived, so guess what....

(giving you guessing time....)


Yes, because of the timing, I was able to raise the garage door and ask them to take this hulking huge machine from me. They had a dolly and their big truck had a ramp so they didn't have to do the heavy lifting that has thwarted other efforts to get this behemoth outta here.

I had been unable to contact the Latter-day Saints as Frenzied recommended some long time back. Every time I tried to call I got no answer. I tried again just a few days ago after a conversation here.

But it is taken care of now. Maybe tomorrow I can clean out my garage and reorganize some of the rest of the mess in there. Oh how I look forward to it! This will be my personal version of an Easter egg hunt! Anyone want to join me? Anyone? Hello? Hey, where did everybody go????

WOOHOO! Congrats on getting the microfiche reader outta there! I didn't even have to guess. :)

It doesn't really matter who got it, it will do someone some good somewhere. Maybe you'll even find an Easter egg in your garage. ;)

If you find some potato starch in there give me a call, ok?

Actually do I even want to know what you were doing with a life size mircofiche reader in your garage? No. No I do not want to know. Let it remain a mystery.

Happy Good Friday!

When you get your garage cleaned out, I could use a little help with mine!
