      HI TIM! I was in Chicago for a few days for business, would it have been weird to just call you up just to say HI TIM? Antisocial me always thinks that's odd, but I think that's what normal people do. I probably won't be back for awhile so it's safe to ask this now.

        Well, you are weird. So, for you that would just be normal. But what would not be Normal is Bloomington, even though they are closely related. ISU. State Farm. But I only have a yard, as I can't afford a farm. I can't even afford a cow. Perhaps a goat. But do goats eat corn? Cuz I can grow corn in my yard. So call anytime! But, especially, if you're in Chicago.

        Would be great to get together again. Maybe even for lunch or something. Like somewhere that we could get corn. Or goat. Or, perhaps, at Little Goat. Or even some places where we could eat a little of the cow's mate. But don't tell the cow. She might get angry. Oh, wait, you're from Nebraska now. So, you have to bring the corn.

        But, for goat's sake (oh, we could go to Billy Goat to have the slice of bull) just call!

        Break the curse of the goat. Go Cubs Go!

        Is it available and unfilled?

        I've always been intrigued by mascot work, though don't know if I'd enjoy the costume much.

      Wow. That's great. They must even have mass, when they can. I was referring to a modern version of the movie, though. That wound probably have to politically correct, if there even IS such a thing
      P.S. I returned to the church two years ago after a lengthy absence.

        First, welcome back!

        They have Mass for the big shows, like Ringling, most weeks. Friend Fr. Francis Carraco (sp?) On Facebook and you'll see some interesting backstage setups for such. He also offers his Sunday homilies online. These things attract others who aren't Catholic, also, but are religious or take consolation in the spiritual elements.

        There tends to be a lot of faith among performers. Others host bible studies, for example. And, of course, especially with the international element, many faith systems are represented.

        I read an interesting book awhile back written by a woman who did a survey on the topic. If I can find it, I'll pass along the title.

      Hey Timothy. I picked up an old film from Goodwill today: The Greatest Show on Earth- 1952. What a great movie. I believe I saw it when I was a kid. I especially liked when the Bishop with all the altar boys blessed the train, sprinkling it with holy water. You wouldn't see that in a modern version
      1. tim
        tim
        But, you know, that they still do bless the train annually, dont you?

        There is even an official circus chaplain, Fr. Jerry Hogan, and a slew of other priests and even religious sisters who assist in ministry.

      Oh, that explains everything, then. Typically, either the font is so tiny that you only see it when quoting for response, or there are color match hidden properties. But I viewed this post on my phone, where I have the Xmas background selected, as it is easier to read. So what I saw was white against blue. But, obviously, others missed it entirely and were befuddled by my comic quip. Of course, I also always know to be on the lookout for this stuff from you.

      Oh dear! Are they always obvious? They always look real difficult to spot on my computer screen, except rather embarrassingly, at Christmas time when the pages turn blue. I have always thought most people never see them and they pass unnoticed by the vast majority.

      Hiya Tim, are you well? Did you see my secret script in that ministry post or was that luck about Leviticus?

      I find it interesting that this conversation is public and I stumbled upon it via a google search. I love and respect you both, and that is a difficult combination!

      Tim,

      They were being sold by a company called Go carts R Us, but are currently listed as "Out of Stock". I have debating selling mine, but haven't decided 100 %.
