Thanks Doris M. for your kind remarks, so glad that you enjoy the Montgomery News. I enjoyed our visit.
After the birth of their first child, an Episcopal priest wearing his clerical collar goes to visit his wife in the hospital and greeted her with a mushy kiss and a long hug. When it was time for him to leave he again gave her a mushy kiss and long hug. Later her roommate commented, “ Your pastor is sure a whole lot more friendlier than mine.”
Have a nice rest of the week folks. Today 7/23 sure has been a nice Sunday, enjoyed our wonderful Church Service, gorgeous sunshine and having our daughter come by for a visit. M.L.T.A.
