It’s Saturday, April 14th and as far as I can tell

most of us are still here which is a welcome surprise.

So is not having to wear my winter coat.

It’s Saturday April 14th and my three dogs could care

less  about the incessant political banter. Their interests

are focused on scent the bear left behind, food and

the cheek of any car to dare to drive by. It’s April 14th

and I took a few moments to fold my arms across my

chest to see if by imitating Trump I could glean

insight into his thought process. I concluded he doesn’t

 have one that’s chartable. Its still April 14th. I have to

 tidy up my sermon for tomorrow, “Want To Hear a Joke?”

This leads me to realize that nowadays all jokes are

political. When was the last time you heard a joke

that started: “A man walked into a bar…”?

It’s Saturday April 14th. I could go out and buy James

Comey’s memoir, “A Higher Loyalty,” but I already have

one. Even though I’m not going to buy the book I can still

go outside. The crocus are up. I don’t like crocus but I’m

glad they’re up.
