Well, I'm quite calm (I think!) Fr Ray ! Almost alseep actually and sightly bored. I am sat by the bed of a young friend who is dying tonight (she is sharing in the dicsussion too !) so I am very calm really. In fact, I am slightly bored in some ways. It will be a long night.

Erm... What is it I have said that is so erm.... hysterical ? please tell me. I am intrigued ..?

Your selective posts have painted me out to be quite mad ! I've got friends twittering and e-mailing from all over aksing what on earth I have said to upset you !

I have to be honest and say " I really don't know ! But be nice to him he is a good priest."

Anyway, I suspect it could be a long night so, fear not, I will not be plaguing or stalking you ! I'll get in touch with my lower hmeispehere friends. They should be waking around now.

God Bless etc.
