Yesterday our priest gave a pretty inspiring homily based on some pretty inspiring readings.
"Remember, all you have is a gift! All you are and all you have has been freely given! And make no mistake, you grumblers," he pleaded with the congregation, "You are blessed!"
And so goes the assigned Responsorial Psalm, "I will bless the Lord at all times, may his praise be ever in my mouth!"
Amen, Amen, Amen! We are a stubborn people and in need of constant reminding. So, here is...

Obi was down at the beach with the kids the other day when I saw all this commotion surrounding a group of fishermen. I went down just in time to hear they had just let a giant stingray off his hook. Safe waters. The kids claimed it was as large as any they had seen in an aquarium, so beautiful to have seen in the wild, and it escaped unharmed.

We have a special place in our hearts for the moon and its movements. I must say this fall has brought us the most beautiful moonscapes we have ever seen, this was taken on our front couch.

I'm not going to tell you what Joseph is going to be for Halloween, but he's pretty excited about it.
Something else The Family Es is partial to is street art of any kind. We love this guy. He works the Town Square in our tiny town. Always out there in the blazing sun in his silver get-up. He changes his bit all the time, sometimes he has a crazy stationary bike, or a crazy mouth whistle, but he's always silver and he always smiles.
|He's just so dang cute!|
|Don't you want to throw him a fiver!|
Hard to see above, but when we looked in his suitcase this last time we saw this sweet plea: "Help me marry my mermaid, she said yes!" And then her pretty picture. There are a few mermaid shows around here. So fascinating, we humans.
In the most exciting news here, it has finally cooled down a little. A very little. In that we can open the windows at night. You have no idea of the relief.
AnneMarie, in a slight exaggeration, trying to see her breath. It was about 68 degrees that morning. It's all relative.
So...what's been making you smile lateley?
