Home alone–Brenda is in Chicago, having attended our daughter-in-law’s baby shower (grandchild #3 for us due later this month). I took a long walk (one of my usual routes of about four miles), paid some bills, processed a bunch of emails, make travel arrangements for a couple of upcoming trips, watched the Cubs-Nationals game, and hit the road south around 6pm. Talked en route with one of our clergy over some pastoral concerns. Arrived in Marion at 9:00, grabbed dinner at the 17th Street BBQ, and checked in at the Hampton Inn. Looking forward to visiting St Mark’s, West Frankford at 8:30 and St Stephen’s, Harrisburg at 10:30 tomorrow morning.
