Last friday was indeed a strange day of making some purchases, alot of money down but I received nothing tangible in return.
1) Lindsay and I bought new cell phones. For the first time I did not buy an old used phone off of Ebay, but got a brand new one. Which not only plays mp3s, takes videos and pictures, and has an FM radio…but I think it can make phone calls as well. It should be here momentarily.
2) I bought another suit, since that is now my normal appareal. It should be ready in 2-3 weeks.
3) I bought a Clergy Robe, since that too is now my normal Sunday appareal…until we get the contemporary service restarted. That should arrive in 6-8 weeks.
4) Then we under contract on a house. We are having the inspections done these next couple of days to hopefully move this thing along so that we can move in at the end of October.
I don’t think I have ever spent so much money without having the immediate enjoyment of playing with any new toys.

Congrats! But I have to chuckle just a bit. You’re the only one of us wearing a robe on Sunday – and you’re the only one of us that had the history with “pomo” worship. I get a kick out of that.
Not only a robe, but also tabs!
Did you REALLY spend $465 at Christian Expressions?!?
Don’s wrong, Wes. I wear a robe every Sunday (no tabs), and I’m actually enjoying it. Also, I know that Matt Miller and Duncan MacLeod wear them. We’re in good company, while Don is in a barn in Ohio.
HB – you WISH you were in a Barn in Ohio. The only drawback of course is the OSU fight song…
Congrats on all the stuff…when it comes. Did you see I finally got a Macbook, though the circumstances of getting it were a bit odd?
I need to get a robe even if I will only wear it during baptisms, Lord’s Supper, weddings and funerals… I will check out the Christian Expressions option too!
