Retreating!

This weekend, I have a retreat with the Boy Scouts and then head off for a week with the Trappists in Iowa for my retreat and will hang with my bro on the 15 and 16th.

It'll be even quieter than normal around these parts!

Ed, The Trappists are a monastic order based on the rule of St. Benedict. They have an abbey outside of Dubuque, Iowa. You can visit their website at http://www.newmelleray.org/

They also make caskets for sale and to support their order. Very beautiful and elegantly simple.
