I found this little guy perched upon the fence in front of my house as I was leaving for the office this morning. He was friendly and appeared in need of companionship, so I brought him to the office with me. Click to enlarge.

Last evening was the beginning of Bible college for Laura and me at Harvest Christian Center. It was an exciting evening, we anticipate learning a good deal, and we enthusiastically anticipate the next class. We shall be attending classes each Wednesday evening. It has been a great many years since last I attended a class, and I was very pleasantly surprised to find that my note-taking skills were still very good. I managed to fill five pages in my notebook with very legible notes during the class.
