We’ve been warmly welcomed here in Louisville. The old cliche that “there are no strangers in the church - only friends you’ve not met yet” is being proven once again. After the prayer breakfast this morning (a bit of a misnomer for me, since I discovered I just wasn’t capable of doing breakfast) we went with our hosts Harold & Trudy to Louisville Zoo, and a good time was had by all. A wide variety of God’s handiwork was on hand. And there were some interesting exhibits too! Ithink the temperature hit 90F this afternoon, which is a bit on the warm side for me but I’m not complaining.
Had a new culinery experience in a restaurant where you pay a fixed price on the way in, but can then eat all you can fit on your plate. Great variety and pretty good quality I thought, but I couldn’t help but feel that this style of catering must encourage over-indulgence. I mean, the more you eat, the better value it is, right? But I musn’t sound snooty - it was a thoroughly enjoyable meal.
I’ve just come from a conversation about “pet peeves” only to be confronted by one of mine — SPAM. Checked my email for the first time since we came away. 515 messages in my inbox. That is not good, not good at all. I rely on my desktop to do the spam filtering, checking over the web means I get it all. I can’t possibly look through all that tonight, so if you’ve sent me something in the last day or two please bear with me.
