Up early again to get the poms to the groomers. They came out looking so gloriously beautiful!
Then, off to Sedona where our free thought group was holding a Christless solstice-season party at a members home along beautiful Oak Creek. The usual steady attendees who are either retired or self-employed. It had to be on a Friday as that was our acting president's free day and that did decrease the attendance a bit. Even so, there were a couple new faces.
Our next major community event will be on February 15 when we are sponsoring Seth Andrews, host of "The Thinking Atheist," at Agave of Sedona. The advertised title will be, "Confessions of a Bible Belt Atheist."
Seth was a 30-year Christian and professional religious broadcaster who walked away and founded one of the most popular online atheist communities extant. We're inviting everybody we can, including church pastors and their congregations. It should be interesting. His book, Deconverted, will be on sale after the event.
It's slow go, but we're making progress, and I find that very exciting.
On a personal note, a second blood pressure check this week showed my pressure down a bit after cutting salt drastically but still too high, so on the way home from Sedona, I stopped to pick up prescriptions for lisinopril and amlodipine that had been phoned into our local pharmacy. I hate it, but if my doctor tells me I need it, I'd be a fool not to bow to his expertise.
It's been a long run of near perfect health, and I'm thankful for that. Thanks to those horrible scientists that get denounced by so many religious nuts as satan-deceived fools, I don't have to just wait for the inevitable stroke that would either kill or incapacitate me in unpleasant ways. I'm stuborn, but a fool I am not!
