--No bites on the house; there will be an open house this coming Sunday, October 5. We will see what happens.
--More Summer funnies: at our friends place the other day she found a cow patty to be too interesting to just pass by and, while "examining" it a little to closely, she said to Nicol "that's a big, big one." ... then, on Sunday morning I was trying to read Nicol a really great story from The Ragamuffin Gospel and Summer was very irritated that she didn't have our full attention, so she kept saying "scuse me, scuse me, daaaaady scuse me" to which I responded "Summer, you need to wait until I'm done talking to Mamma" to which she responded "you're not listening" as she neslted into a chair with her sometimes-I-get-angry face on (she was seriously ticked at this point and, yes, that's a Barney song for those of you who recognize it... sometimes I get angry, sometimes I get sad...) so when I was done reading I said, "Go ahead Summer" and, not-so-predictably, she said, "May grace and peace [be yours] in abundance." We busted out laughing on that one.
--We learned today that Matt Bryant (the kicker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and his wife lost their son to SIDS last week... Wednesday I think. Thanks to Angie for letting us know about that today. I have prayed for them throughout the day as I've thought about them. Lord God, give them grace. Hearing the news and reading about the Bryant story has torn at the scabs on our hearts.
--What's up with the numbers? Like the one in the title of this post for instance, 92808. It's today's date. A few of you have asked about it or commented that you had figured it out. I know, I'm weird. There really is no point to it. [ :-) ]
