Did you enjoy the Updike? No matter, time for a reset. No, not WEF style, instead team LSP went on an exeat to Paris, Paris TX. By way of background: a few years ago, several people pounded the mahogany in the Compound's dining room over dinner. Fun, and here's the thing, they wanted to start a farm, a Battle Farm, which they did.

Some six years or so later, lo and behold, 80 acres outside of Paris, complete with a chicken operation, a good size tank with Bass and all of that. Sure, it's a work in progress, but hey, they actually went ahead and did it. Well done, kids.

CW caught a Bass, which is a fine thing to do

You'll be interested to know the prime movers behind this rural adventure are vets, they're also converts from Anglicanism to Orthodoxy. I wish them well, what a lot of fun to escape for a few days and not look at a computer.

If you're a proper Orthodox, do you need to wear a beard?

Paris, TX
1967 included a RON at a hotel in Paris. An imposing structure, it was sagging badly. The bed had wood blocks under a corner to keep it level. The room was clean, the linen immaculate, and the water hot. I've slept in far worse places.

Mr. LL, that's a very good question. I find it works well with men and less well with women.

LSP said...

WSF, I haven't been there in ages but had a good time. I liked it out there. Well done kids, you've started a farm.

LSP said...

Ah, RHT, great linx.
