...bless the beasts and children II

Hello. A new book about Karen Carpenter is getting quite a bit of press, including her sham of a marriage to a penniless pig named Tom Burris who took her for a lot of cash. Love is blind, but the neighbors aint. On this day in 1979 Pope John Paul II visited his native Poland, becoming the first Pope to visit a Communist country. When Pope John Paul II was still living in Poland as Cardinal Karol Wojtyła, he claimed that the security police would accuse priests of sexual abuse just to hassle and discredit them. (New York Times, 3/28/10). For Wojtyła, the Polish pedophilia problem was nothing more than a Communist plot to smear the church. By the early 1980s, Wojtyła, now ensconced in Rome as Pope John Paul II, treated all stories about pedophile clergy with dismissive aplomb, as little more than slander directed against the church. That remained his stance for the next twenty years. "Bless The Beasts And Children." I viewed new silk fabrics from 'Webster' this morning and chose a couple of possibilities for a large operable balloon valance. It will be blackout lined, as privacy can be paramount. smirk. I placed another needlepoint pillow order, all seaside themed and very well done.

Bless the beasts and children
give them shelter from the storm
keep them safe
keep them warm.
"I'm just afraid I'm gonna miss it all... being married... being a mother." Karen Carpenter
