Monday, You Big Jerk!

Monday, you big jerk!
You lurch in after Sunday
Spreading misery.

It's Pastor Steve's Last Sunday

Who's brain will I pick?
It's Pastor Steve's last Sunday.
I sure will miss him.

The associate pastor of my church (Steve) just left for a new church. He is a really cool kind of pastor for sure. I always felt that he was receptive to my questions - even if they seemed to question the "why" of certain things in the Bible. He even told me theology text books to check out - never patronizing. His new church is lucky, and I will miss him. I guess I will just have to break in the new guy when he gets here! Or, bug our senior pastor (if he has the time for my odd questions every now and then).

Where is Mama Duck?

Abandoned babies
Tiny peeps cry out for help
Where is mama duck?

This was inspired by the poor, little ducks I saw today. You can see their pic on my cell phone photo blog.

Logo Mania

Logo mania
Everybody's invested
Emotions run high

Dedicated to the tumultuous time in my professional life when we tried to change the color of my company's logo. What a nightmare.

Forgot to Feed the Fish

I just remembered:
I forgot to feed my fish
Bet he's really ticked

Don't worry . . . he's still alive, and I only forgot one day.  Bad still . . . but not fatal.
