Friday Fare: 8/13/21 (the “up nort'” edition)

When I was a kid, I said a prayer that basically went … “dear lord, I don’t want to grow up to have an ‘ordinary’ life. Thank you and amen.” First and foremost, childhood me … how the hell did you define “ordinary” and secondly … well, good work. But sheesh …

Case in point, this week’s to-do list has the following items on it:

  • Write proclamation
  • Write marriage sermon

Well, here’s some context. I am on a board in the community where I live and its general manager is retiring after 30+ years of service. Our community’s mayor is going to be reading a proclamation and that smart politician asks for anyone who’s requesting a proclamation to provide a draft of the document.

In terms of a marriage sermon, I’m actually up in northern Minnesota this weekend and am going to be officiating the wedding ceremony for the daughter of one of my dearest friends.

I’ll go back to my normal “Friday Fare” format for next week’s blog, but in the meantime – stay strong, get vaxxed, listen to some good music, and keep drinking your water.

What is Friday Fare? As a recap, on Fridays I post link love to the various bits of arcane shiz I discover on the Interwebs.  I liken it to a glimpse into my mind, but without the 80s song lyrics or mental cobwebs.
