ON THE BACK BURNER

Feb. 18

Where else can you work really , to the point of exhaustion and still have a great time. You meet all of your friends, you talk up your Congregation to a person who is interested  and you work until you think that this might be a good time to stop. My congregation had its 25 th annual food festival . It was a beautiful day, as it always is. I was part of a two people  garbage detailed. After a slow start, it was show time . The formula is peek into a garbage container, make an executive decision to empty the garbage or wait until there is more in the container. If you empty, you have to pull the bag out of the cardboard box, tie it off , and replace the bag,and then schlep the garbage filled bag to  a big  garbage hopper around back of the Temple. As the day got later, the bags filled up quicker. My partner and I just kept up the peek, decide, change, carry routine, until we both just had to stop. When I made it home, I showered and sank into  NetFlex stupor and  later to watch the Rescue Dog Pet Show on my Channel 5, the Hallmark Channel. I want to enter Noodle in the best in snoring division. I think he would  at least place . I'll have to make a note of this for next year. If it conflicts with our Food Festival, I'll have a difficult decision to make. I think the Food Festival would be the winner and I have already asked for my spot again on the garbage team.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
