"He's getting on the chopper and I'm not going to loose it" "The helicopter is taking off and I'm crying like a baby". Mr I'm not going to loose it did loose but didn't write the second one.

--- 3 ---I adopted a Cardinal this week. Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston. He's a young one, only 63 and has been a Cardinal since November 2007. I'm born in November and I have a few cousins who live in Houston. His middle name is Nicholas. He is actually one of the very few Cardinals that I know
--- 4 ---My use of Latin has skyrocketed this week.
--- 5 ---We will soon be on the look out for white smoke. This is the second conclave of my lifetime, the last one I spent practically glued to EWTN and I wasn't even much of a Catholic then, now I have a smartphone and social media so I can keep mobile but I plan to follow just a fiercely though differently this time.
