It's been a bit of a strange day. My sleeping meds are still acting strangely and my schedule is off.
Tonight I was past of a team that presented the flags at the local high school's homecoming football game, it's fun, but it's the third year in a
row I've done it, so the excitement is waning. Still, you would have had a good little chuckle seeing me. It was the tuxedo with sword, cape, naval
hat. I think it's the hat that spoils the look, it's topped with a giant ostrich feather.
Now tomorrow is another story. I'm wearing the same outfit, but there will be different people in the team and the purpose is different.
The head of the Maronite Catholic Church will be in our state for a visit and will be celebrating a Mass at a local church. His title is Patriarch
and his Church is based in Lebanon. They are in full communion with the Roman Catholic Church, and the Pope appointed him as a Cardinal in the Roman
The Maronite Church was formed centuries before Mohammed, but of course, the Muslim conquests didn't do much for them.
I'm excited about the whole business. I've never seen a Maronite Mass and the rest of the people in the outfits will be the state's highest
ranking Knights. I know it sounds silly, but tomorrow should be a big day. A couple of hours after the Mass, there will be a dinner and ball across
town. I'm planning on going to that as well, but the dance won't be too exciting, as I don't have anyone to go with.
Darth, you'd look absolutely brilliant there. All the men will be in tuxes, leaving the ladies to look like jewels or peacocks (as they should).
I need a good soothing drink before bed tonight. Black Russian? Irish Cream? Tea just won't do it for me.
