As I said below, that photo was expensive. I carried the camera and the iPhone from the house to the car. Seeing PuddyTat's ears poking above the grass, I put the iPhone on the roof of the car and took the photo. Unfortunately I left the phone on the roof. A ways down the road I heard two odd bumps. A quarter mile later I figured out what had happened. I couldn't find the phone so borrowed one of those gadgets that finds metal things from a friend at Curves. This is what I found. sigh. But now I have an iPhone that takes movies. And my bank account is considerably lighter. Oh well. I provided the highlight of the day for the folks at Meadville's AT&T store.

Mighty hunter

This was an extremely expensive photograph. More about that later. Meanwhile check out the little orange ears of the mighty hunter. And, yes, I need to mow. And fill the feeders.

Church picnic time

Picnic, you say? But that's not a picnic. It's inside. Yes, but there are no bees inside and there were lots of bees where we planned to eat. The photo will embiggen a little if you are curious and click on it.

St John's Episcopal Church, Sharon, PA

I attended the installation of a priest today. It was a lovely service. BUT my mind wandered back to the good old days when a bunch of white males stood with their backs to the people and mumbled stuff we weren't supposed to hear or take part in because we couldn't possibly understand or we weren't educated enough or, well, we were laity and they were better than us. And I missed the Sanctus bells. Otherwise it was lovely. And the alb on the left contained a woman, the Canon to the Ordinary. I enjoy attending all the installations and ordinations. I get to see the churches in the diocese that I can't visit on Sundays because of responsibilities at Christ Church. I'm also meeting some interesting people. That's always fun.

The carillon is to die for tho. And he is good at ringing.
