Recent Random Thoughts

  • Earlier this week my beloved Indiana Pacers were eliminated from the NBA playoffs.  At least my Colts are still the Superbowl champs.
  • The form on the standardized tests my students took this week doesn’t give me an option for race/ethnicity.  I’m an other.  What up wit’ ‘dat?!  Let’s update these things people.
  • I’m not big on quotes, but my desk calendar had a great one from Martin Luther for April 16th.  “Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime.”  I love that.
  • We went to the post office recently and the wait was a short one.  They stamped my eight postcards for me which filled me with delight.  Normally I have to put a few stamps on each postcard, and things get a little messy.  Maybe one day we’ll get to use stamps that don’t require glue over here.
  • I let Grace hold my post office receipt during our recent post office visit, and it was like I just gave her a million bucks.  I bought a Sprite on the street for Rose for approximately 40 cents, and that purchase brought a huge smile to Rose’s face.  I became the new owner of a used Nokia cell phone for $12 which made my wife very happy.  That means I’m happy.  We’re happy people.
