Anyway, we got home way late, and I'm only now fully functional. Had my shower, took my pills, had something to eat, gave Sassy her pills, nudged Deanne, read my e-mail . . . I could still use some more coffee, though.
Scouters from all over are descending upon us soon. Boy Scout and Cub Scout Leader training begins at the church at 1:00 p.m. The Venturers come in at 2:30 to cook for the Wapehani District Recognition Dinner, to be served at 6:00. I'm going to be beaten to a frappe by the time this day is over -- and, of course, we "spring forward" an hour tonight, and everybody loses a night's sleep.
Nevertheless, I shall rejoice. (Just 'cause it beats the alternative.)
Returning to the idea of coffee . . . We all know that the introduction of coffee helped fuel the explosion of discoveries, inventions, and new social organizations we call the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution. Considering that Methodism arose in that environment, could we perhaps say that coffee also stimulated that spiritual movement? It certainly seems to be necessary to stimulate Methodists today.
