I'd like to read sections 1,3 and 4 please.
Section 4, somewhat less traumatic

PL OK!

Hmm. Who is S. T. C.? Sometimes I can figure these out, but not here.

I was just listening yesterday to a chapter in a book by a Canadian homesteader, who talked about her uneducated, low-charactered neighbours always "borrowing" from them (never expecting to return the items). I wonder how she'd feel about this essay. :lol:

Thanks! I saw that essay title and wondered how it would relate to our Psalms project! :)

I have to admit I hadn't made the connection until you mentioned it.
I think I enjoyed reading these more than the psalms because the poet didn't need to force square pegs into round holes.

Yes, I hear you. And the text on this one (the type itself, and spelling) is easier to read!

PL OK, thanks!
