Doug, is everything alright at home?
I had some trouble over some C’s, as well, but managed to graduate.
Connie Mack was the last to wear street clothes managing (he was also the owner) He did that for roughly 50 years, and everyone else had stopped at least two or three decades before him.I don’t see baseball manager wearing player’s uniform as necessary (unless they’re the mostly extinct beast – the player-manager).The Buck Showalter “warm-up jacket in August instead of a uniform shirt” look is completely ludicrous (unless you’ve got some sort of actual blood/circulation medical condition).Personally, I think they should wear either uniform pants or casual pants, and a team logo sport shirt or camp shirt of some sort. I’d give serious consideration to the early-80s Chicago White Sox “beer league softball shirts”
C’mon, Bill – Carson and Letterman did that bit 30 years ago!…still funny, though.
Miss that green a couple of times, and they’ll be Angry Birds.
“middle school” has little to do with it – though the foolish push in recent decades to put 6th graders in that environment instead of grade school adds pressure to them sooner.The main thing is, they’re 12 (give or take) – that at least some of them (Heart, Kat, Dean and their classmates) are dealing with puberty is a given.
I’m not sure what point Patrick is trying to make with this one. My computer is balky at zooming stuff from gocomics, so maybe I’m missing something on the other doors – looked like “permanent deacons” and “episcopal appointments” (Leo’s door I could read just fine).…Missed opportunity would have been to have a certain recognizable Mary statue in the room or hallway. One of her titles is “Our Lady, Untier of Knots”.There are statues with the motif of her untying knots – alternative sometimes seen is her with a sword, slicing through the knots.
No, they’re not clergy, not ordained. Occasionally confusion slips in with other terms – like when you’re in the hospital, you ask to be put on the list for visit from the Catholic Chaplain and Sister somebody comes when you wanted a priest.Anyway… “formation” doesn’t apply to just clegy in the Catholic context. Loosely, any religious ed is formation. Usually, though, it’s more typically used referring to “professional” formation of those who are taking on some sort of vocation like priests, deacons (who are ordained), and men & women religious (who are not ordained)
“Sparkle Plenty” That’s the first genuinely funny line that salesman has had in years.
I think the color change is to indicate Spock used up a life with that truck tire a couple of days ago.
