Today is Friday and that means the local newspaper is delivered (in the mail!) It is a weekly that keeps us up to date on sports, deaths, and local events.
The sign at a Baptist church says "pray for rain" and this morning our prayers were answered. I awoke to thunder and rain. As promised to my students, I raised the blinds on my one classroom window (it is 6 ft wide and taller than that) and let us see the rain.
