  1. Great exercise of “the little gray cells,” Clarice. I rarely score 100 on anything, but (if not’s considered braggin’) I managed to pull it off here. You’ve given me a great idea to use with the college class at church!


  2. Clarice…I must find a way to include some of these in my Christmas letter.
