QuotationEaster Monday morning Pee Wee McGruder came up to finish work on the well digging. They put in the casing after welding it there on the new grass. And then in the afternoon I went for another walk but not far away, only on the dirt road around behind St. Joseph's hill because I had to give a conference. And I gave it on community life, which was perhaps silly. (Palm Sunday I talked on the Easter service from Sound and Fury - Dilsey's illumination. Better.)
