    God bless you, Chally! It's seldom that I don't get some fresh insight from reading your posts... a marathon in a PWC, huh??? That does sound like something that even I might eventually manage ... :) John

    Greetings all!! Well, I guess I'm aclimating somewhat to retirement, but surely do wish that had not been necessary. New pastor for the parish from which I retired in January was installed just last Sunday. She is the first female pastor of that parish in a nearly 200-year old history. There...

    Hi folks!! I do apologize for being a day late (and I actually was on the site yesterday) but that's rather typical for me... a day late and a buck and a half short... Had clinic on Tuesday. All is well, no measurable progression. I am beginning to have some trouble turning onto my right...

    Hi folks... it doesn't look like there's been much chatter in this thread recently, so I thought I'd pop in and at least say, "Happy Wednesday"! For those of you who are so inclined, please do say a quick prayer for me tomorrow. I'll be going to our regional ALS Association Office to...

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh man... is this rotund, bald-headed, PA Deitsch, chicken plucker ever tuckered!! One more Sunday of Eucharists as Rector here, and then I get a taste of what retirement is like! I have been asked to do long-term supply work at a wonderfully small, rural parish... and I...

    PALS roll call Wednesdays (or whenever) PALS ONLY PLEASE

    Hi folks!! It has been forever since I've checked in, and I do apologize profusely for that. It seems as though I get unreasonably busy mid-week and then before I realize it, another weekend is here. So, I'm just gonna abide by the "or whenever" clause of this string and post on a Monday...

    PALS roll call Wednesdays (or whenever) PALS ONLY PLEASE

    Hi folks! I'm here, and it's actually Wednesday, so I thought I'd say hi while I'm waiting for the Wednesday night forum group. Advocacy Day with our state legislators seemed to go well, so I hope that the adopted budget reflects all that was done during that day. Things here are going well...

    Vet support group

    Chally, thanks ever so much for yet another uplifting post! It's always a joy to read your posts and enjoy your humor! I do wish there was a Veterans' Support Group near me. The ALSA support group is great, but being with fellow veterans seems like it would be leagues better. John
