How did a whole week go by without my writing on this blog? I suppose a few days off occasionally are to be permitted. But a whole week?
It has gone from 14º to 75º this week, and I did not handle today all that well. I have been trying to run anywhere from 1-7.5 miles (run/walk, of course) every day this month, but today was probably my worst afternoon thus far. Who wants to run in hot (75º), dusty weather? It looks like I shall be moving my running from 3:00 pm's to 9:00 am's so that I don't have to notify our county's First Responder (also, our neighbor) of a possible heatstroke. How embarrassing would that be, I ask?
6000 dead pigs floating in a river upstream from Shanghai? How can that be? 6000 sounds like a lot of...dead pigs. I am only listening to this on BBC Radio, and I don't know the circumstances. They are saying that the pigs died of cold weather. Hmmm...
A new Pope. That doesn't really affect me, or my family of Lutherans and Methodists. The new Pope has chosen to be called Francis. Like Francis of Assisi? Here's a quote attributed to Francis of Assisi that I can appreciate:
Preach the gospel at all times, and when necessary, use words.
I like that.
