The walk concluded, the parson headed to shower, shave and such. Out the door he went. Penny, on seeing him approach the car moved toward the porch and settled down into her usual place; Charlie Brown has not yet condescended to allow Penny to ride in the car.
They headed toward the parson's uncle's apartment. He was ready when they arrived. Charlie Brown settled down in the back seat with a sigh. The parson and the uncle headed to another city for the uncle's daily radiation treatment. Treatment done, the parson headed home.
After dropping the uncle off, the parson and Charlie Brown headed to the really big chain store where they purchased 350' of mesh wire fencing and enough steel posts to place one every six feet along that 350. That completed they headed to another store to purchase ten gallons of athletic field line marking paint. They then headed to the church to unload all the purchases and begin the preparations for the Cow-A-Bunga Bingo, scheduled for Saturday.
The parson pulled out his 300' tape measure and did the calculations to determine the necessary dimensions for 1500 three foot squares, each of which would await the cow's deposit on Saturday at the Cow-A-Bunga Bingo. A layperson was at the church flying up and down the property on his John Deere riding mower, getting the grass ready to receive the markings.
The parson moved to the storage building and extracted the light weight push mower. He then proceeded to trim those areas the riding mower could not reach, close around the fences, around the trees and shrubs. The parson's church property is composed of quite a few acres. Then the parson moved to the ditches along the right of way. He began to pick up the litter tossed there. As he did so some weird dude of some dubious faith tossed more trash in front of the parson. The parson muttered some words that, no doubt, to the layperson helping sounded like ancient Greek.
Trash picked up, the parson then began to cut the two month old growth of grass along the ditches. It was a long job, a really long job. Then the parson hauled off all the debris he'd collected, pushed the mower back to the storage building, moved all the fencing and posts that would be erected the next day inside the building. And then he changed the lettering on the church sign.
The parson and Charlie Brown arrived home long after those folks who actually work for a living got home. The parson fed Charlie Brown and Penny, Charlie Brown's new girl friend, as well as the three wild cats who live in the yard but allow the parson to put out food for them every evening.
The parson cooked his own meal. Sat down, enjoyed it, listened to Brandi Carlile sing about “Dreams,” washed the dishes. And then sat down at his laptop to compose a blog for the internet.
The parson is an old man. The parson aches in places he shouldn't be aching. The parson is going to bed. Try to find some other blog to read today.
