    Sometimes I go a bit mad on the cold-callers; I have been known to bark down the phone. Or I will cut into their spiel and say, “Wait, wait—I have a question!” Of course they think it’s about the product, so they say, “Go ahead!” and I say in a breathless, too-bright, too-loud voice: “Did you know Jesus died for your sins?”

    Silence.

    Silence.

    Click.

    And they don’t call back.

    The ladybugs are back! I was so afraid you were tired of them, Len—but I love seeing one (or two) hanging around just observing. Also, love the “spots” on the ladybug in the R corner.

    I usually turned these compositions into book reviews of everything I read over the summer…usually needed several pages.
