I love to ramble: when driving near my home (weather permitting), I often take backroads to see where they go (and if my camera is with me, all the better); in social situations, once my initial shyness wears off, I can talk and talk about apparently random things. And I can do this as long as I have an audience--sometimes longer ;)
By working together on the kibbutz, the community became close-knit; however, tensions did arise from people living and working in such close proximity to one another. For instance, after hearing the news of the commotion at one Lady Chadwick's soiree, some of the workers found Princess Amelia's behavior to be reprehensible, while others hailed her as a revolutionary.
The man was offended that his guerdon was not what he expected. Yes, he did help the police catch the criminal, but he didn't realize that the reward offer was voided to criminals who turned themselves in.
I really hate it that I got kicked out of the soiree. And here I was hoping to meet at least one nabob in the flesh. Oh well. Maybe next year I'll have BJ help me choose more appropriate attire for the occasion.
In an act of genuine penitence, a young man came forward to the altar and genuflected. The pastor bowed to pray with him for a while, and then the young man left his position of prayer to return to his pew.
