I feel like it SHOULD still be Sunday.
I need a nap.
The photo above wouldn’t win any awards but I like it.
And it is MY post.
The mist was pouring in from the sea.
An Egyptian Goose.
A one legged Egyptian Goose. 🙂
A ghostly goose.
Where was I?
Oh yes the news I got while I was away.
My minister died of a heart attack last month.
He was a big part of my life.
And a very small part of my life.
Does that make any sense?
He baptised me in the days of the ark.
He dedicated my kids.
Well, three of them.
No,actually, he did the fourth one too.
He baptised my first husband.
He married me to my second husband.
He did the funeral service for my second husband.
He married me to husband number three.
I think he dedicated a couple of my grandkids.
So…he featured in my life quite a bit.
On the other hand, in the last ten years we have spoken once.
So,lately, he didn’t feature.
I have fond memories of him.
He was a keen fisherman.
He would often fish off the rocks near our house.
I recall often having to go down to tell him it was times to do youth at the church.
He would say “one more throw”
Eventually, he would toss me the keys and ask me to open up for the kids.
When I phoned him to tell him I was going to marry again he asked me if it was going to formal or informal.
I said informal.
He arrived in jeans and sneakers.
We discussed what we needed and then he said “you know how to do this, if I am late,start without me”
He was lousy at social chitchat.
Unless it was cars,sport or fishing.
However, once he was on the pulpit he could talk up a storm.
I loved his sermons.
They were never boring.
He was different.
He and his wife named their daughter after one of their Persian cats!
You just have to admire someone like that.
I have forgotten her name.
Am sure it wasn’t Kitty.
More of Wendy’s garden.
Back to Gerald.
That’s his name.
I am not sad he has passed on.
I am sure he was ready.
If not, he wasted his career.
I am a little put out.
Should I ever decide to remarry who do I call?????
I bought some pills at the health shop just now.
They are made from Barley and Alfalfa and other wonderful organic stuff.
Supposed to be VERY good for you.
They are green and look like supplements for cows.
I am repeating stagnant pool water!
