Nothing like seeing devastation in foreign countries to put one in the mood for travel!

Happy Halloween everyone. I hope you have been enjoying the Charterstone Halloween Party Playlist on the jukebox.

Well, any guesses? I'm really scratching my head to come up with something I'd be interested in. I mean, seriously, what could Wilbur Weston, over-eating, lazy Wilbur Weston possibly have to tell us unless he's somehow figured out a way to pay his daughter's tuition bills. Because if he can pay a college tuition while writing a daily advice column for the local rag, with the occasional Survivor story, I want to know how. And I want in on the scheme.

I looked at Mary's face, and it really made me think about how quickly things can change.

Well, Japan was good to Wilbur. He lost weight AND grew more hair. Sign me up.

Of course, if he is back, Iris probably got there first and is telling him all about how she mothered Tommy to recovery from his opiate addiction. If Mary hurries, we'll get to hear all about it.

...She says with a glance towards the kitchen. Better get started on those muffins. You don't want Wilbur to be disappointed.

If you want to give me a gift, don't give me a book - unless it is a collection of Mary Worth cartoons (thanks Toots McGee). When I get a book as a gift, it feels like a homework assignment. I don't get a lot of reading time, so I make sure to get a book I'll love, and if I don't like it, I stop reading it. Now, we all know Iris is talking about the Bible, so that's a little bit different, but I've never heard anyone refer to the Bible so coyly as "a book," unless they were about to give you one. So, if you'd like a free book, here's one.

I have no idea what they're talking about because I can't stop thinking, Yoga Pants??

"Iris must be pleased... with the advice I gave her to spend more time with her son. Yes, I've done it again. It's time for my victory lap."

While Jesus healed the sick, Mary made some sort of deal with the devil to never age.

Did you say, "spending more time with mom?" That was Mary's idea! Thanks, Mary.

I always wondered what happened to Sabrina the Teen-Aged Witch...

Mary may be hoping to be 25 in the future, but she still spouts the wisdom of a 70 year old fortune cookie.

While the the concept of anonymity seems to be lost on Tommy as he DECLARES his participation to all within hearing, it isn't lost on Mary who abruptly changes the subject to his back. Well played, Mary, given how I know you must be dying to hear all about this turn of events.

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much to the blog. I've missed it. I've been in a lot of meetings. Uh, yeah, meetings. I'd tell you what they were about, but they are supposed to be anonymous.

Yesterday, Tommy was ready to take out somebody's left lung with Hebrews 11:1. Today, butterflies.

I'm so glad you're feeling better, Tommy. What are your plans for today? Maybe it's time to start thinking about getting a job?

This go around, Tommy is definitely keeping up with the Bible! He's already put to memory the verses that Iris gave him, to the point that he can quote them in context, which is not easy for even the staunchest evangelical. And he's shaved! He's shaved! What a transformation. What's next? A haircut?

I picked out some verses that I thought you might find helpful. Or! You COULD say, "I zeroed in on specific points for you." Because when I read the Bible, I'm always zeroing in on specific points. It helps me keep up whenever I try it.
