Feast of Polycarp of Smyrna
:-: excitement of a promised trip downtown and a show at Children's Theatre
:-: quiet closeness of a warm afternoon drive, even if just a few minutes long
:-: freshly conditioned and brightly beaded braids
:-: wishy-washiness that may be the beginning of mutual blessings
:-: inventiveness of someone who has come up with a perfect solution to our cat-door problem: a micro-chip based cat door!
