A couple of members, and I won’t mention their names, said that I should do a new blog this week, since it has been a long time coming.
February is one of those funny months. Never quite sure how many days it has from one year to the next. It kicks off with all eyes on Punxtsatawney Phil, the most famous groundhog in the entire world. And before you know it, Cupid is flinging arrows or delivering cards and candy. Presidents’ Day comes next, which means the banks are closed, not much more. So far it is quite boring and little fodder for a blog.
This year Lent begins in February. It will arrive without a meteorological prediction, card, candy or flowers and of course, the banks will be open.
So, what is up with Lent? Here is a little quiz to keep you warm. See how you do. The answers will be given out at our first Lenten Breakfast on February 22. If you miss it, not to worry, I will publish the answers in my next blog. Take the quiz here.
The only lingering question is: will Adrian and Sallie actually notice I put up a new blog!
