Clouds ~ Patriots Prayer ~ Better Late Than Never ~ Pie Day



Good 35º cloudy morning.

Yesterday more gloom/fog/clouds and then sunshine.

         Rain predicted for sometime during the day today and more tonight.


This made me laugh. Someone wrote a prayer yesterday for the Patriots!
Our Brady, who art in Foxboro, hallowed be thy arm. Thy bowl will come, it will be won, in Minnesota as it is in New England. Give us this Sunday, our weekly win, and give us many touchdown passes, but do not let the Jags pass against us. Lead us not into frustration, but deliver us to the valley of the sun. For thine is the MVP, the best of the NFL, and the glory of the Patriots, now and forever, AMEN.
