The Holy Father in New York City 
Jesus Grotto
This was an emotional day for me. I cried several times from sheer joy. I can't get over how moving it is having the Holy Father in the United States.

The 911 Memorial service this morning was amazing. I was sobbing when the children sang "Let There Be Peace On Earth," as I'm sure many others did, as well.

And it felt like I was there for the mass at Madison Square Garden. I loved his Homily, based on one of my favorite Bible verses.

On has to marvel at his energy and strength! He must be exhausted, dealing with jet lag and his unbelievably busy schedule (to say nothing of his age). Anyway, all of his appearances today were impressive. He was so delightful at the Harlem school he visited! He's just wonderful with children. With everyone, actually.

Marilyn came home for lunch. I made her soup and toasted cheese sands. We had (store bought) burritos for dinner.

Tomorrow I'll go run the front desk and greet the people coming by for interviews. Marilyn will be managing Nominating -- I think she said there were seven (!!!) interviews.

We hope to get done in time to go to Rich and Merlin's barbecue reception after their wedding (which we're unable to attend because of work).

On the negative side, I'm still dealing with issues from upgrading to IOS 9.0.1 -- and having constant crashing. Plus it just 'disappears' and has to be restarted! Not sure why. This was supposed to fix the issues with IOS 9, but obviously it didn't!!!

I'm heading to bed now. Good night!

Thanks for calling me so I can keep up with what you are doing. I am working on e-mails and a few things and then will play a few games on the computer. I need yogurt, but Candy was not acting like she would get it for me, so since I need more pads and diapers guess I will buy the yogurt too. I do not think it is too much for her to spend a little of the money on things I need, but oh well. As long as I can pay my bills and go to a tourney now and then plus weekly cribbage I guess I am good. It is a beautiful day today and should be nice for the wedding and barbeque. Give Rich and his wife my love. Oh yes thank you for signing the card and putting in the money sorry I was so long paying you back.

Sorry for the phone crashes! I hope it works out quickly!
