Special to the Register from Pastor Gary Karschner.

I have just finished my Mother’s Day sermon for the second time. The first one went into the electronic black hole of the Internet. It was an operator error that lost the eight page program. Let’s just not talk about it anymore. I don't want to relive that moment of instant nausea and rage that overcame me. Nuff said.

This week I have some observations and some facetious comments about stuff. I have some comments and hope I can present them without getting into trouble with the “politically correct“ police. My mind is slow to change and come around to new changes in our world. I still call the Indianapolis Colts the Baltimore Colts. I still struggle with the perceived insult to the American Indian when the Florida State Seminoles and the Atlanta Braves do the "tomahawk chop" at their games. I don't know that I have seen the actual legal argument posted anywhere.

I am slow to change. My Commodore 64 is just fine, so why do I need a new computer? Our Radar Range microwave is repairable, if I can just find the right tech person to fix it. I hate to throw things away.

Don't get me started about the metric system. I am a child of the sixties so a 454 or a 383 is more impressive than a 3.5 ltr or 4.3 ltr engine. I am not smart enough to compute which is bigger and thus better.

I am still frustrated about losing my sermon. It was my Mother’s Day sermon!

We continue to deal with the Covid 19 pandemic. Just because we have been released to move about more does not mean we still shouldn’t stay at home as much as possible! The virus is still around! If these folks that are being told to stay inside and self-quarantine themselves would do it, then maybe someone would write in and explain why we need the metric system in the first place.

I told you this was going to be facetious and thought confusing. Did it work?

Please pray for rain. Our earth is getting very dry. I reckon we can all agree on that.

Sending Happy Mother’s Day wishes to all the moms out there.

Be Well
