On the road again....

We're on the way to Summer Camp - North.

I spent most of yesterday at the Armory waiting for the computer technician to come to repair my laptop. He didn't arrive until almost 2:00 in the afternoon, and didn't finish until after 5:00. The replacement screen functioned the same way that the first replacement did last week -- it doesn't light up enough to be able to see what's on it.

The tech had spent so much time working on it, I didn't insist that he put the cracked one back in (he looked positively terrified when I mentioned it), so now my computer doesn't work at all, for all intents and purposes. Sigh.

By the time he finished, I was one of the last people in the Armory, and had no easy way to get back to the hotel. I wound up waiting another hour for a ride. Fortunately, I was able to get together with my brother and sister-in-law for dinner, though I'd hoped to be able to spend more time with them than what we wound up having. Oh well. It was great to see them this weekend!

So now it's the crack of dawn, and we're getting ready to load up and head out to the L.A. Airport for our flights. The unit has chartered some passenger jets, so at least we won't have to suffer through the indignities of airport security, and the need practically to disrobe completely in order to be admitted to the gate areas.

This adventure begins.

Blessings and peace to one and all,

Fr. Tim, SJ

I do hope you find some of those friends who hang around with 12-Step folks. They are great companions, and help us when we've missed a meal, are frustrated, lonely in the midst of a crowd, and just plain old tired. They remind even a chaplin to pray and meditate right here, right now. You are loved by many of us, very much!
