A Musical Concert or Aggravating Noise?

To say the least, and I usually do, this summer has been quite a journey for the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and myself. I can’t remember a summer equal to the one we just went through. The fact that we got through it is amazing. We have been staying at home more often than usual, but I’m not complaining. What better night than the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me sharing whatever we are doing? One night this past week, I turned off the TV; we were getting ready to go to bed when my wife said, “What is that aggravating noise?” I didn’t know what she was talking about. I asked her to tell me what noise she was referring to. “Listen,” she whispered, “don’t you hear that noise?” I must say one of my problems is that although I listen, I most often don’t hear. There is supposed to be a connection between listening and hearing, but it doesn’t always work with me. I guess I’m wired differently than my wife.

If Only My Fishing Rod Could Talk

It has been a busy week, more so than any other week. Just when I thought I was caught up, something else presented itself without my permission. That seems to be what life is all about. I remember my father telling me when I complained to him how busy my life was and how my employer wanted me to do a lot of work, “Son, that’s life. To be sure, he was right. My father has been right many times, and if only I would have listened to him, I would not have experienced some of the problems that I did. Just don’t let him know I said that. In the middle of trying to sort out my mess this week, I sat back in my chair, took a deep sigh, and then noticed my old fishing rod in my office corner. It has been there ever since we moved into this house. I forgot that it was there, and as I looked at it, I remembered some of the times I had with that old fishing rod.

Doing Nothing Is Harder Than I Thought

After being so long in a lockdown situation, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage planned a short vacation time for us. It took her quite a while to put all of the pieces together, but she succeeded as always. As I was preparing for this little adventure, my wife looked at me and said, “What are you putting in that bag?” I looked at her, smiled and said, “I’m putting some projects that I want to catch up on while we’re on vacation.” I then flashed another smile in her direction. “This is going to be wonderful,” I said to her. She looked at me, both hands on her hips and said, “You are not taking any projects on this trip. The whole plan is for us to do nothing. Do you understand?” I must say I was not quite prepared for this. When we got away, I thought I could spend time catching up on some projects I was working on. I always have a project in the wind.
