My sister Alaina is in town; she arrived yesterday afternoon and immdiately fell in love with Wendy, my new dog. Alaina and I went out to eat and caught up on each other's lives. She's moving from Indianapolis IN to Columus OH in a month or so.

Here's the funny thing: I'm not a very religious man any more, you could call me more an agnostic or a Joseph-Campbellian. I like to think, as Franklin did, that there is a Providence that leads us toward good ends. Providence appears to have led me to adopt Wendy so that Alaina could take her home. I could be very happy with that end. :-)
