Live From Lake Logan III: The Night Of Reepacheep

Still no boojum sighting, but there was the mouse. Not much sleep last night. About 1 a.m., my bedroom was invaded by a mouse with the valor of Reepacheep. He was manic. He was everywhere. Especially, he wanted to join me in bed. I think he was counting coup. He would launch a bed assault. I would shout at him, slap at him with my book, throw shoes at him. But he would be back. Eventually he managed to run across my bare foot, and that seemed to safisfy him. He quieted down after that and I got some sleep.

Yesterday, we had another good morning on liturgy, then some managmenent/leadership training that was somewhat naive and unhelpful. Last night I met with some experienced fund raisers and got some excellent advice. This will be a full day of critical incidents after Morning Prayer and and a Euchurist celebrating the Feast of the Ascension.

I've had lots of experience with mice - none of it fun!

After a 3 hour wait in the ER it looks like I will live.

Oh that comment didn't make sense unless you know, he came back the next afternoon while I was napping and took a tiny chunk out of my pinkie finger.

Ouch and very scary. Thank goodness my mouse/mice experience extends to sightings only.

Christ Church Episcopal is where I worship and celebrate Eucharist when visiting Las Vegas. ALL PRIESTS ARE FABULOUS, so keep the standards high. As a former choice member at CCE, I remember a particular choir rehearsal where the beloved director tested the premise: Who's watching me and who retains head buried in score, ostrich like! She lay on the floor before assembled minions while continuing to wsave one arm. A quick count revealed that (a) most men were laughing at her, while (b) most women were glued to the printed score in pages. This technique is highly recommended for any choir directors interested.

Christ Church is a fun place. Their priests and choir director are first rate. I enjoy my time with them as well.
