Buffalo, Girls?

When I saw this ad on the bulletin board at work today, I had to go buy some:

For Sale: Buffalo
$3/lb, sold in 4 lb. packages
Call Bob.

This will be added to my notes for the book I'm going to write someday: Only At My Place of Work.

Hmm, I wonder if I have any buffalo recipes in any of those cookbooks I own ...

Not too much to write about at the moment. Life goes on, and many days I think life is too good. Why is my life good, and the lives of so many others, not so good? I don't know.

I've been posting a few things on my family blog; check it if you are interested in my day to day life, or at least parts of it. I've been enjoying a few birds that I hadn't seen in Dallas before this year, and a pair of spiny lizards has laid its clutch of eggs just under the edge of the sidewalk. I've ordered myself a new bird feeder, so no doubt I'll have photos of that up when it arrives.

We're praying about options for Rachel for housing after her current apartment contact expires. Lots of options are possibilities, so pray for God to give her and us wisdom as we process this with her.

Also, still no decision about where to settle for church. Lots of good churches around, but I confess, after our last church we're finding it hard to be satisfied with with less than high quality music and musicians. Most small churches try hard, but often with amateur results. And I admit, it is hard to not have a "consumer" mentality. Sigh.

Gary recently got a new computer for his home office, but I fear it is going to take weeks to get it set up such that he will get rid of the old one. He's happy to be getting a new large flat monitor.
