Nor long remember.
Still here. Thanks to those who sent along their thoughts, hopes and prayers. It is appreciated.
Leaving tomorrow for Norfolk (again: sigh). Back in a cuppla. Hopefully will have summat cheerful or at least worth reading on the return.
Went to church today. Don’t remember any of the lessons, nor really the sermon itself although I do believe it was a good one, Father Steve being a good man with the scriptures and the words. Even if every other sermon or so has someone dying prematurely or unrepentantly. Felt better after though. There’s a hardness can fill my heart at times, but there’s something about that place makes it soften up again. Love your neighbor as yourself, we are instructed. Among other things, but that’s at least the half of it. I reckon family fits in there somewhere as well.
Your mileage may vary of course. Free minds, and all that.
But I’m a better person for it, after.
Oh, here’s a pleasant thought, entirely unrelated to the first: Had a flight physical on Wednesday last. A long form, for those of you keeping score at home. On account of my superannuation, you see. Grabbed a bottle of water on the way out the door from home, thinking to myself, “For the urine.” I’m getting close enough now to the end of the naval road to find the idea of drinking water just so I can get get rid of it again an hour or so down track faintly amusing.
But only faintly.
