We serve such an amazing God!!
As of last Thursday, we are “sede vacante” (vacant see), pope-less. Pope Benedict XVI resigned citing health reasons. First Pope in over 600 years to resign. Strangely, this one didn’t make me as sad as when John Paul passed. Probably because John Paul was the only Pope I had ever know, the one I grew up with, the one that was there while I made my way back to the Church, there was a long and deep connection there.
We are in prayer with the Church during the conclave.

If you couldn’t make it out, this is how it goes. You walk in and order, they give you a boarding pass to swipe at your table. Then two by two (by two by two in our large order case) the meals are delivered by the train that wraps around the restaurant. How sweet is that!!

This little conductor boy was absolutely in love that a train brought our food!! (Yes, he is going through a love of trains.)

We figured the boards that were crumbling as we picked them up were probably unusable… so they met their fate in a blazing inferno.

I’ll be honest, I don’t know how much it helps, I tell myself it at least stops/slows the air flow from outside. But at least everyone laughs about our “anti-mind reading room” – no tin foil hats needed!!

Do you see how deep those ruts are?! Oh. My. Word. Its got to be bad when the Excursion slides all over the place. Then I wonder how we’re supposed to fix it…?!?!
