Long story short...
Lost the keys at church,
could not find them,
hitched a ride home with the Terpstras,
rode back to church,
still could not find them,
waited for the 11 o'clock to end,
found them,
and ended up being the last ones in the parking lot.

In my routine check on the boys out the slider, I yelled,
Boys what ya doing?
This time their response called for a camera and a hike into the woods
as they replied,
We're looking for pig noses.

I'm pretty sure I bought broccoli, but it seems to be sprouting
more like a broccoflower.

As in the tale of the Treasure Tree, tonight I witnessed community
using their gifts to solve a problem first hand.
And because I am not a lion or a beaver or an otter,
I just picked up a book and started reading.

Back in my teaching days, I used to give students a bag with 
random items inside.  From this bag they had to determine 
the owner of the bag's personality.
Today, I noticed the random assortment of items in our bowl
and wondered what it said about us.
