My father & Uncle Frankie went to the game last night as usual. In keeping with the typical stupidity of life around here the phone rang pert near off the hook last night. It was all for garbage. Besides the utterly pointless ones, Aunt Lauren called too. Unfortunately she has a bad virus or something. Benjamin wants to be a monster for Halloween this year. My mother called Dotty who's been in the hospital lately. I got back to reading "King Lear" & by now have already finished well over half of it. Later today I have to lector at 5:00 Mass. Lately that's getting to be quite a habit. It's the second weekend of the month so tomorrow will be the Holy Name Society meeting. The weather was very cold again this morning but at least it wasn't foggy. Monday is Columbus Day. Over in Manhattan they have a big parade. I don't think too much of anything gets done like that around here. On that day we celebrate the day when Columbus brought the Americas to the attention of the civilized world (western culture, that is). Of course with all the politically correct, leftist revisionist history we've been forced to swallow over the course of the past few decades, there will be the inevitable whining about it.
