I was supposed to blog all about this, but (my apologies to Gathering of Eagles) I'm going to be lucky to make it!
There is going to be a silly anti-war protest on the Boston Common today.........hello? We have won the war in Iraq, we are just mopping up now. To leave now is like leaving a last bite of your dessert, pushing it away and saying you are on a diet.
Anyway, we are going to stand in front of the recruiting office on Tremont and make sure there is no nonsense.
I don't have a sign......I know. I am not prepared. But the day is just all crazy anyway. I was going early, going to Mass, then pick up some things from the Constitution Museum for my trip, then to the GOE group. But now Kathy has made me promise I will stay and meet her for dinner. So I moved Mass from 0730 to 1600.
You know I am not a morning person, but 0730 is the best. It's in the chapel and it's small and intimate. The people who are there, seriously want to be there. I don't think I am spilling a secret when I tell you that some people at the regular Sunday services, aren't really paying attention....they are just chefcking a box. You haul your but up to 0730 Mass in the chapel, especially on a rainy winter day......you want to be there. So Mass in the chapel is always better.
All right, I have to get in the shower.
