So, I am writing this in haste and it’s really not that great of a story. Lloyd and I set up for communion, and when we first started, I didn’t like the squeeze bottles that we used for filling the individual cups. I looked at a catalog and bought the ‘pancake/donut-batter’ style plunger cup. It worked like a charm.

Well, the last time we set up, there was a note that said the plunger thing was missing. Rats! We looked all over, but no dice. As soon as I got home I ordered one from Amazon. When it arrived, it was broken. Rats!

When we were in Omaha, I asked Lloyd to look up Christian bookstores so we could just buy one. (A dispenser, not a bookstore.) We stopped at the first one (a bookstore, not a dispense) that Siri found: Gloria Deo. I zipped inside and it seemed…. Catholic. Lots of saints and icons. I looked in the communion section and there were giant plastic bins of wafers, but no wine things. Oh yeah – Catholic. Oops. They don’t do the wine for the congregation.

We went to another store and I got just what I needed.

After the cookie exchange party, I zipped over to church to deliver the new one.

…. the lost one was in the cabinet.

    But, of course. The lost has come home. Magically.

    On the up side, now you know where to buy gifts for all of your Roman Catholic friends.
