Trust everyone will have a fun and safe holiday weekend. I'll be going to Costa Rica to visit my daughter who is teaching English there.

Albert immediately regretted venturing into the clutches of the great beast.

The Devil

A lttle addendum here to my last post concerning the devil. I believe there to be a devil but I believe obssession with devils or even angels for that matter is wrongheaded. I think the focus should rather be on God and we needn't obsess about the other stuff because if you are a Christian "greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world" He being the Holy Spirit. Just wanted to clarify. Thanks for bearing with me.

Angels and Devils

When I was a little kid living in Indiana there was this bump on the sidewalk where the concrete was all crumbled. Some kid told a friend and I this was because the devil was coming out from under the ground. At first we were very excited-Yah,let's see the devil- and tore into the sidewalk grabbing chunks and pounding to see if we could break it up more. Then we got really really scared and proceeded to reassemble the shattered pieces. Who knows if a couple of intrepid 4 year olds had not averted a major satanic eruption. So if you happen to be casually strolling down the sidewalk and you see a bump and it's all sort of crumbly like. You know what's going on.

My grandma is 98 years old and eats ice cream every day. She says the doctor told her that at 98 she can eat anything she wants.
