I got up this morning around 6:23 AM. I got out of bed because I was having a very long exhausting dream. So I got up and got the Sunday newspapers off the driveway (our driveway is cracked and crumbing, which is a good description of our American society. America is cracked and falling apart. But who cares along as we can all sing, "Purple Rain Purple Rain!").
I messed with our main computer and then I wrote in my paper diary. Carol got home from work around 8:39 AM. When she got home I was peeling an orange and about to take my pills.
I read this morning for devotions one of my newest books titled, "The Fourfold Gospel: A Theological Reading of the new Testament Portraits of Jesus" by Francis Watson. Carol went to bed around 10 o'clock AM and is off from work the next two nights. Maybe the good ship lollipop will come in.
I should go put clean water in the bird bath and then go for a walk among the tulips. I can hear right now our neighbors chickens making a noise. Maybe one of their chickens laid a golden egg.
Last night I listened to metal music, messed with our main computer, and read till I got sleep from a novel titled, "Busy Monsters" a novel by William Giraldi.
Well, this ship is about to sink so I will close to drift into the afternoon hours.
" The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
 As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.
 And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.
 And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;
 And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.
 I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.
 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.
 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:
 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
 And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness." Gospel of Mark 1:1-12
