A tribe called sparrow



I began my morning on the Chisholm Trail in Plano, after eating a lightly-flavored cinnamon oats cereal. At Weight Watchers I was down 5 pounds, as I expected to be.

I walked a bit in Shawnee Park in Plano on my way to church. At church, they handed out personal inventories of skills to allow folks to discover their "spiritual gifts". I am pretty sure mine, if any, do not include physical organization or speaking in tongues.

The sermon was by the Reverend Maxie Moore, a schoolteacher/coach who became a minister later in life. She often gives effective sermons in which she expresses her lack of confidence in her ability to give effective sermons. It's an effective rhetoric device, though I think she does not intend it to be a device.

After church, I went to Taco Casa, where I had three soft tacos. The warmer weather meant that I was not the only customer. I missed the frozen weather for a moment, but only for a moment.

After lunch, I drove to Celebration Park, where I got on the Celebration Pass trail. I meant to walk for 40 minutes, but I walked for 90 minutes. I liked seeing Harris' Sparrow, as well as 17 other species. But mostly I liked walking on a sidewalk with a stand of trees on one side and houses on the other.

In the late afternoon I walked Beatrice. The breeze was stronger by the afternoon, but she liked her walk.

In the evening we ate French Dip sandwiches. I watched "Victoria" on PBS while my wife watched the Grammys on the other television. I did watch the Lady Gaga/Metallica performance and the Tribe called Kwest performance on the Grammys, which were both quite interesting.
