Time to take my leave. Keep the Faith; be careful out there; stay out of the ditches; think good thoughts; and may your god go with you. Oh, and of course, one final request, Let us prey. Humbly yours, Turkey Vulture. Contact me with words of support/abuse through the Letters Page or email@example.com.
PS. On the sheep, Grace. Hi, Silver Swan, behaving yourself? Hopefully not! And, Hi, George; hope you and Sheila are well.
