The End of a Long Week

I’ve had a couple of long days and a very busy week! Tomorrow I chair the annual business meeting of the association of churches for which I am president. Due to the resignation this summer of the vice-president, I took on the role of also chairing the nominating committee.

Because we have new by-laws going into effect next years, all of the offices and committees of the association have to be filled. Thus I had to find almost three times the normal number of nominees. I finally finished late this afternoon and have just completed creating the ballot—including footnotes explaining the roles and terms of each office. Now I can rest until tomorrow morning!

In other matters, I had a telephone call from my old and dear friend, Candy. She informed me that she is thinking about marrying a man she met a couple of months ago. He is twenty years younger than me (she pointed out). Hey, folks! I may be in my fifties, but I am far from past my prime!

Regarding the other couple I wrote about, who were planning to move in together and perhaps marry, I have heard nothing. Maybe they have given up on the idea? I rather doubt it!

There is also some what I suppose I could call “blogger news.”

I want to thank Jessica Rabbit for giving me some insight into a serious personal problem I was having. The time she spent with me on Yahoo Messenger has cleared my head of lots of shit!

I recommend you take a look—and listen—to Niki’s Thots from my secret life post for today. She is a great musician and figured out how to allow us to download and hear a song, Piece of Heaven, that she wrote and sings on her band’s newest album. It’s well worth the time. The song is great: I’ve been listening to it all day as I prepared for the association meeting.


  1. Nice blog. Your posts were interesting reading. I have a discount tires site. You'll find info on most major brands of discount tires such as Michelin, Goodyear, BF Goodrich, Cooper and more. With winter right around the corner, you can also get tire chain recommendations for your vehicle. Please try and visit it, see what you think.

  2. So glad you enjoyed my song...I'm very flattered :)

  3. It’s a splendid song, Niki, in a style and of a genre that I really enjoy and appreciate. I can easily identify with the lyrics and my own search and longing for that elusive “piece of heaven.”
