I want to wish Fr Gamble a happy December 12th, which is a holiday for some reason.
What holiday is this? The 21st is the solstice, 25th Christmas, 26th Boxing Day.

It is the glorious feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe! Thanks for your well wishes. I hope you had a good half day off.

I left around an hour before nominal quitting time, so i guess that was half a day off of sorts.

But there was no traffic going home, there's that.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

Never heard of it but as anyone who beheld my waistline would know, I am all in favor of feast days. I think all religions have holidays around the solstice since this supposedly nasty brutish and short life without the Church seemed to allow a lot of time for astronomy and general contemplation. Just as the Jews elevated some minor Chanukah stuff and gave it a weird spelling the Blacks created a weirdly-spelled holiday but the Jews and the Blacks did it solely to dampen the 'Real People are Christians' movement and undermine the stance that this is a Christian country. Now we all know that when the British say they will have dinner courtesy of "The Indian" what they are probably referring to is the local Pakastani take out, but no one really cares about historical accuracy about these things.

Where is FrG, he was going to some horrid
3rd world country. I read about it and
Americans living there warned tourists
to stay away, the robbery rate is sky
high. Robbing American and EU tourists
is a cottage industry, apparently.

I would pray for FrG, but I don't believe
in prayer or the Easter Bunny.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

In the Everglades, ministering to Burmese Pythons.
