Happy Birthday, America! A Call Out

Happy Birthday, America!

Thank you to all of our veterans serving and who have served. A special thank you to our allies. I'm thinking in a special way of Angela's son: our Canadian friends.

After I finished my grueling gutter cleaning episode this morning, in which I sucessfully killed a maple tree trying to root in my gutter, I decided to call Terry because he's usually around.

[Phone ringing....and ringing....and ringing...and ringing]

Terry [answers]: Who died?
Me: It's me!
Terry: Cath! Whew! I thought for a minute there it was my family!
Me: I know.
Terry: I almost didn't answer the phone [pause and laughs]! Well, I almost didn't answer the phone anyway!
Me: I know
Terry: Not because it was you!
Me: I know
Terry: I don't have caller ID anyway
Me: I know
Terry: What's going on? What's Ray done now?
Me: [laughing] Nothing, that I know of. Oh, I mean Ray! [laughing]
Terry: Ray's always in trouble, you know.
Me: [laughing] I was wondering if you wanted to go to a movie today?
Terry: With you?
Me: No, with Mrs. Rabitowitz and I'll buy! [pause] Yes, ME, dope! [said with love]
Terry: What movie?
Me: Star Trek
Terry: Are there any priests behaving inappropriately or any rampant homosexuality? Because you know I'm always looking for blog material
Me: Uh, no, I doubt it.
Terry: Well, no, thanks. [pause] But, you knew I'd say "no" before you even asked, didn't you?
Me: Yes, but I don't want it said that I don't ask
Terry: [laughing] You and I and Ray need to go out again!
Me: Sure, Ter
Terry: I mean it!
Me: Sure
Terry: Please pray for me. I'll pray for you.
Me: I always do.
Terry: Thanks for calling! It's always great to hear from you!
Me: Same. 'bye! Give Mrs. Rabitowitz my regards.
Terry: Will do. 'bye!

He has caller ID and it took 32 rings before he answered? I think he disrespected you, Cath.

I don't have caller Id; but then nobody calls anyway. Of course, every spammer not in captivity sends me a half dozen messages every day.

Hi Ter and Timmy! , er, Ray!

When I have more than a few dollars in the bank, we can. Father Z may not be able to get to England but I can't even get to south Minneapolis to buy buckwheat pancakes! I've had a craving for them thanks to someone...

Y'know, Cathy... it is NOT charitable of you to keep all the hot Catholic guys for yourself. I mean, come ON! Share a little!
