Alone at Last





Radio Question of the Day:

A new survey found that these are now the three words most women want to hear the most... What are they?

*********************

Well, my Mormon guest has left. That Bindy. I wouldn't know where to start telling you about the visit. Aren't you lucky?

I went to church with her. Their Sunday morning services last three hours. Three hours. I was numb. And I'm not just talkin' 'bout my butt. The services are broken up however. One hour in the chapel, second hour in Sunday School and I forget what-the-heck they call the third hour, but for that session the men and women are separate.

All I'm doing today is finishing up the painting I'm doing at my church. Then I have to get busy quilting the church banner that daughter 3D and I did. At the same time I have to work on the preparations for our church auction. I'm in charge of the food for that. A day of rest. And after Bindy, it is a day of rest.

Anybody ever notice how much time this non-believer spends in church? That Lucy.

Answer to the Radio Question of the Day:

"You've lost weight!" Haven't heard that in a while.

Three hours? You are a good friend.

I'll be sure to tell The Missus she lost weight tonight. I'll tell you how it goes.

Last time I got dragged to church, I skipped Sunday School. I went to McDonalds for some chow. I felt like I was back in High School.

I had to go to the main service however.

I would not have been able to handle three hours. I would have faked a stroke or a seisure or something.

Wow, I was in church for about three hours ONCE in my life: it was a bilingual Catholic wedding. I think I told you about it. It was freezing, too--snow on the ground, old colonial stone church without proper heating in Bethesda. The reception was warm and nice, though.

Glad you survived:) I wasn't sure I would!

actonbell said...

Oh, and we thought that the girls' confirmation was long!

Logophile said...

You, Lucy maluv, are a very good friend. Give give give
You ARE a very churched non-believer, it is true.
The naked door answering is a good tip, have to remember that.

LOL, LOL..Between the three hours of Church Services and that great picture at the top of your post today...I don't know weather to laugh or cry!(Reverse that...Cry or Laugh!!!)

I'd love to see a picture of that quilt, Lucy....

And I would LOVE to hear those three words, my self! (lol)

Peter said...

Hi Lucy, 3 hours... that's doin' penance bigtime.

There's been a lot of cartoon nudity on this blog lately. I don't think Bindy would approve.

Bela said...

I nearly went to college in Salt Lake City. Looks like I had a narrow escape. LOL!

Am I the only woman who doesn't want to hear those words? They would mean I was seriously ill.

And water for communion. Really harshes the buzz.

lime said...

3 hours huh? hope there was at least some good music in that deal.

Libby said...

3 hours? ouch!!

Saur♥Kraut said...

I'm sorry, but I'm not devoted enough to anything to do it for 3 hours.

Hi there lucy. Great blog. Went back and read some of your earlier stuff.....with a motive. I've lost Christine. She was so one of my favorites. Her last comment ot me was back in July (about Ants of all things). Just wandering if you oh ol Hoss know if she's ok. If she's not blogging or wants to be private...that's cool....just wanted to know if she was ok....thnx!

UKBob said...

I think you deserve a medal.

Doug said...

It occurs to me you sure seem to be nekkid a lot lately.

Hi Lucy, I am very sorry to hear that you have lost a much loved son by suicide, I read your post 7th Aug 2005. My son hung himself. I do think of all my happy memories of Justin.As you would understand this does not come close to making up for the fact they are no longer here with us. Sadly at this point I do not see the children or their mother,I keep the lines of communication open with them,reaching out in a positive manner. At this point im time I seem to have also lost a daughter in law that I had a good relationship with as well as my three much loved grandchildren. I hope and pray that this will change. Cheers and God Bless. Loved the naked cartoon, what a good idea! Margaret

Miz BoheMia said...

WOW you are a good friend!!! Five minutes into a church service, or sermon, whatever, I would get down on my knees and beg to be shot, BEG I TELL YOU!

Bohemians humbly bow before you! That's fo sho!

neva said...

laughing at the cartoon, the question, your post... *and* a few of the comments! 3 hours? ouch. xox

Hi,
Had a real laugh at the naked door joke, thanks.
I once did an hour every Saturday morning for about 3 months with two lovely Mormon boys visiting to help me understand their religious teaching. It wasn't for me, but they understood that and were happy just to come and talk to me.
