As soon as I got back from over yonder, we were ready for Venturers. I taught the crew about the many uses of ponchos, including the making of hooches. Just imagine you're in the middle of the Vietnamese jungle, I said. By a supreme effort, they succeeded.
Then came the Church Council. Only a few mushed in from around the town, but we got the business done. I'm relaxing now just a bit before an early bedtime. Must be up betimes and heading for the surgery center tomorrow. I hope that by tomorrow afternoon, I'll be resting nicely at home with a shoulder that works again.
