There are certain things that one chooses for his “daily carry”. You can guess at a couple of the things I always carry.
Did your guess include…
Why carry this all the time?
CNA reported that a car crossed a center-line and ran straight into the bus carrying students from Covington. The driver died.
What is it about Covington and the March for Life?
The CNA report says:
Witnesses told WLWT that a priest on the bus gave the driver of the car a final blessing.
Fortunate driver, to have a priest there.
I had to give last rites several times on Roman streets, once on a train track. In other words, in emergencies out and around, not in ER’s or hospices.
From a sudden and unprovided death, save us O Lord.
Since today I had some time to kill between my check out time at the club and my check in for the flight back to Mad City, I was pleased to have been able to sit down and play a little chess with their chess club. It was really fun.
I like those classic vinyl beige and green boards with the clean Staunton pieces.
I haven’t played much chess… well, virtually any chess for the last, say, four decades. This group is pretty new, and they meet every other week. Nice people, there were both men and women. I was offered a game right away, with a generous hour clock. All in all over a couple hours I split my games and watched one wrap up.
On my way into the airport lounge I was handed a little bag-let for the Lunar New Year.
There are some candies and what I fear is really a “platitude cookie” disguised as a fortune cookie.
Let’s find out.
It wasn’t as bad as I feared it would be.
What is the force, I wonder, of that “You do not…”. Is that futurity? Is this, in fact, a fortune cookie and not a mere platitude cookie?
I think it would be a hoot to start up a fortune cookie company and write the messages… ominous things, in cookies died black with squid ink. “Watch your back today!” “Don’t forget. It could make all the difference.” “Are you sure you’re healthy?” “You didn’t check your math, but others did.” “Tell her she has to stop doing it.” And my favorite… “RUN!!!” Enigmatic and yet unsettling.
Perhaps you have ideas.
My ride this afternoon. Good ol’ N361NW. An A320-212. I’ve been upgraded.
You can see the Capitol dome on the horizon.
