I'm so glad it's Friday. It's been a bit of a long week. Got a lot done but have an even busier week ahead.

I've jumped a little further into cyberspace. I joined Facebook today. Luckily I've located a friend I haven't seen in years. She's living in North Carolina and still married to her adorable husband-not that I thought she wouldn't-but he's great. If any of you guys out there are members please sign me up!

My friend Ann is leaving on a "pilgrimage" on Tuesday. She and her husband are going to chaperon a group of kids from St. Agnes Church to Washington to join the March for Life. She is braver than me. I think I left teenagers behind a long time ago. Good luck, Ann!

I read in the news that John Mortimer has died. He has given me some great reading moments with Rumpole of the Bailey. The article said he was writing another at the time of his death. I'm going to miss reading that one. I'm the original "she who must be feared" or at least I get that impression from DH sometimes. Rest easy, John.

Speaking of books, I bought one yesterday. I've never really been a fan of Anne Rice. I did stumble through Interview With A Vampire and The Mummy but some of the others I found very difficult to read. Well, it seems that she has had a very religious experience. I think it came along unexpectedly. Anyway, she has written a book called Called Out Of Darkness. I read about it in the paper and tried really hard to put it out of my mind. It kept bothering me-maybe God was talking to me-so I bought it. I haven't started it yet-maybe I'm afraid to see what she says. Wish me luck.

Hope you enjoy the new book.
Have a lovely weekend.

You're the second person who has told me how good the book is. I may have to read it soon.

By the way, Paul and I are "old time" Catholics, ourselves. No meat on Friday, Latin Mass, mantilla, the whole nine yards. Just like you remember!

I think Anne Rice was always religious, her books always had an undertone that Catholics I think pick up on more. Her husband died several years ago though. Her son is also very active within the Catholic Church promoting tolerance of homosexuality.
