This is week when as a family we try to be away for ourselves. The family is now just the two of us, but it is still important to get away. But before we could get away there were four phone calls. All requests were those that require something.
The Bank and Post Office are closed today, but every office is not closed. If those who phoned read this they may feel bad, hope they don't, but phone calls and knocks at the door are the reality of life. Some how clergy, and their families, must learn to deal — or no deal.
When we finally did get away to a lodge a midst towering pine we skied on semi groomed trails, that were a bit icy.
