A Busy and Varied Agenda

Claire's and my life together is rarely dull or monochromatic. It is painted vigorously, boldly and in many colors. And that's a good thing.

For instance, this morning Quint, Don, Carol, Claire and I were in front of the Planned Parenthood abortion mill praying, holding signs of cute babies, sidewalk counseling...and praying some more.

After that we zipped home so I could blog, cross-post items to Facebook and Blogs Lucianne Loves, and get the lawn mowed before the rain. Meanwhile Claire is running an overdue errand and cleaning out the Oldsmobile in preparation for Don coming to come get it this afternoon.

Then it will be a quick clean up because we need to be in Fort Calhoun around 2 to set things up for a "When Swing Was King" presentation in a nursing home there at 2:30.

Next it's back to Omaha to meet Don and start in on the evening's activities which include ordering new pro-life signs from Pat, getting ready for a meeting tomorrow with Steve about expanding and improving the Vital Signs' internet outreaches, answering a few calls and letters and, we certainly hope, getting further into the 800-plus pages of Wilkie Collin's novel, No Name, which is the selection for the Saturday night meeting of our book club.

And somewhere in there, we'll have a bite to eat.
