Brown Shoes and No Connections

For so much going wrong today, it went quite well.

First, when getting ready this morning I realized I didn’t have my black belt. Left it in Enid. No worries, I thought. I have my suit coat and I didn’t need a belt.

  1. Hey, Pope John Paul II liked to wear brown shoes instead of the traditional red papal shoes. I think Pr. Hall can get away with brown shoes if he needs to. Besides, only the women in your parish noticed anyway 🙂

    However, I’m sorry to hear about the brown pants. I feel for you.
