Fr. Steve’s updates

Today I stopped by the high school summer home. The only high school students still on campus are those who are working around town this summer.

Lloyd, one of our houseparents, stopped by the office to give me  Star Trek  DVD’s.  He knew I’d appreciate having something to watch during my resting times.  I’ve seen all the episodes many times, but this includes many behind the scenes shots and info. With the way my foot feels, it’s too bad Dr. McCoy couldn’t give me a quick hypo-spray and regenerate my damaged nerves.

Today I stopped by the high school summer home. The only high school students still on campus are those who are working around town this summer. Many had already checked out for the holiday weekend, but Dominic and Shay were still around.

I find the students are more talkative when alone or in small groups, and I had some good conversations with both.  Whether summer or school year, it’s important to take some of that face to face time to understand our students and their needs.

    Jerome Bixbt was a friend of ours years ago. He wrote “Mirror Mirror” among many other episodes. His wife walked out on him and left him with their three sons. He was writing then. I remember he always had the typewriter set up on the kitchen table..and life and writing were pretty much catch as catch can. But they managed just fine. He was a good man.. Small world..!
    Watch out for any Klingons..!
    Hugs and Prayers..
