Going on 4:00 p.m. and I am eating the first food of the day. Had coffee early in the morning, but no breakfast, and quite obviously a very late lunch. We used to read about people who would rather finish the book they were in than come to dinner. Well, I have been one of those my whole life. After about 36 hours without eating, I start to remember what I should be about, but it takes that long. Been useful at times, there have been times I didn't eat out of abject poverty for several days at a time. Yes, it happens, even in America. Dear Wife fusses at me about it. But she is not feeling well, and she hadn't eaten since last night either, so I made her (heated up, that is) some canned chicken noodle soup, served with a side of saltines. I heated up some leftover chili in the refrigerator, have the bowl here beside me, grabbing a mouthful every few minutes. My table manners are not the best, as Wife will frequently remind me.
Small crowd in church this morning. I have been leading the morning Bible study for the last month, expect to do likewise for the remainder of this month. Then we shall see. One of my very favorite things to do, actually.
Things still quiet next door. Niece and her husband got into a big argument last Monday. She ended up spending the night in her car in the driveway rather than go in. Don't know how it is working out, but both vehicles were in the lot when I left for church this morning. In-law issues I think, having his mom & dad living two doors down, and his mom being a rather domineering personality may be the heart of the issue, but I don't know and frankly it is none of my business. We love all of them, including his mom, and we are staying out of the matter. But, as always, there is some "splash" effect of these matters.
The Old Testament reading today is chapters 4, 5, and 6 of Ecclesiastes.
