BLESSING OF ANIMALS
St Paul’s Episcopal Church corner of Holly & Walnut Street
Sunday, October 3, 2021 at 2 PM PDT
This event will be in the courtyard of the church. Dogs, cats, ferrets, birds, lizards, stick bugs… Please bring pets leashed and contained as appropriate.
In the windstorm last night we lost a couple of our signs about the Animal Blessing this Sunday. If someone happens to find them and lets you know, I’d be happy to come pick them up if they are salvageable. We were hoping to keep them to use every year but the weather had other plans. Thanks so much! ~ Mandy Gagnonn firstname.lastname@example.org 360.733.2890, ext. 1109
CASH IN MAIL?
Our mail carrier just stopped to ask, thinking it had been us, but alas… Has anyone recently tried to pay a service provider (likely a gardener or a landscaper, but could be something else) by leaving an envelope of cash? A substitute carrier pulled that as being mail to be posted. It’s at the post office, so not “lost”, exactly, but they don’t know who to return it to. Our carrier’s name is Mark (I think), but it was his (new) sub that pulled the envelope. You can respond to me or go to the post office, although I can’t tell you who might be able to help you there. I’m more than happy to help reconnect you by letting Mark know that you’d like to try and claim your cash. ~ Leslie Glen, Elizabeth Street email@example.com
MISSING GRAY KITTY
Our cat, Gunner, has been missing since last night. He’s gray with a white chin, chest, and paws, and he’s very friendly. He will probably come right up to you and say hi. But he’s also very old (16!), so we’re quite worried about him. Please let us know if you see him! ~ Théa Rosenburg, 2618 Park St. near W North (360)305-0664

THE GREAT STORM IS OVER
Bob Franke wrote this song, reaching for his own comfort. His new-born daughter was the little lame child. She grew up just fine, and all of us were left with this jewel of a song. It’s not the tidiest of recordings, but you get to hear the joy and love in the room. And Bob’s great guitar playing, aka ‘Carter Family meets Joseph Spence.’ The front row at Bob’s concerts is usually full of guitarists trying to figure out what Bob is doing with his hands while his songs heal hearts.
GLORY GLORY HALLELUJAH
If you haven’t heard him, it’s time. Distilled joy! Loose, creative, the words didn’t matter, he hung onto just enough to hang the tune on. And cracked himself up. He welcomed all of us in on the fun!
OUT ON THE ROLLING SEA
Here’s another song and a bunch of photos. I saw him live in 1972, but have not been able to find any video of him.
