There were evidences of recent rain this morning but it kept fine all day + there was some sunshine. S.W. All I did was walk to the Hospital + see 3 cases on the way. Went to Communion + not being required to officiate was in my own pew with Dora1 + Chrissie2. Went to evening service also + during the day plodded on at the record cards3. Dora has a very inflamed ankle from insect bites.
