What's Going On
Today is the anniversary of my first Holy Communion. It was in 1962, the middle ages to most of you out there. A huge day in the life of a Catholic child. The significance of the day was lost on a 7 year old, but all these years later, I still remember... but what I remember was that I was ITCHY, and I had to wear the bane of my youth, the crinoline. To those of you unfamiliar, it was a big stiff and fluffy but itchy slip. I hated and still hate to this day wearing anything itchy. It seemed like everything I had to wear when I was young was in fact very itchy! I didn't sleep well because of the sponge rollers in my hair, and I was afraid to displease Sister Floretta, my second grade teacher. Somewhere there are home movies of me, holding my prayer book, candle and Rosary, looking like a mini bride. Funny, how all these years later, I remember May 5th for this event.
Well, that's what's going on around here. Enjoy this beautiul day!
