-Varmt välkommen hit-
I was woke up early this morning with a sad phone call. Pr. Martin Ringstrom has passed away just hours earlier. He turned 100 last november. He was one of the founders of our Swedish club and was the oldest living pastor of the Augustana Synod. He will be sorely missed. The world is a lesser place without him now.
And 2 years ago today Molly Ivins died. We certainly have missed her wit and wisdom these last years.
Work was ok this afternoon. Had visitors but no one wanted a tour. I got my work all caught up. That is amazing! I still had time for 2 long chats with Eric, our artist in residence. I always enjoy his stays. He is an old hippie sort of guy and very intereseting!
Since it was 71F this afternoon, I came home and sat outside with my 2 cats and Jo. Nice to get some attention. We all enjoyed each other.
Willie is walking better and I had less back pain. Nice for a change. Maybe with our weather bouncing around that is what is the culprit, at least for me. I can eat almost anything but not much. Mac and cheese sounded so wonderful for supper. It just wasn’t. (sigh)
Keep fightin’ for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don’t you forget to have fun doin’ it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin’ ass and celebratin’ the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was.
