Day 118

Larry and Father Marcel

July 22nd, 2010

Larry and his wife saw me on the road yesterday and invited me to stay with them, but they live a little too far off my route. Larry was on his way to the Catholic church in Fort Shaw, which is right on the highway, so he checked with Father Marcel to see if I could stay there. Father Marcel let me sleep in the church last night, and he made me a mean breakfast this morning, featuring enormous blueberry buttermilk pancakes.

    God was loney..and Matt heard his call. He gave him rest.

  2. deb says:

    Does anyone know – did I miss a comment that explains why the recent pictures seem a bit hazy? Camera problem or has Matt been walking through some gloomy weather?

    • Candice In Alabama says:

      I’ve been wondering that myself.

      • young says:

        deb and Candice – According to recent tests, the DROID phone camera, which I assume Matt is still using, does not manage the low lighting of overcast sky and/or at dusk very well, thus shots taken in these more challenging conditions end up “looking hazy and blurry.”

        • deb says:

          Thanks young! I love Matt’s pictures. Here’s hoping the sun will come out…tomorrow.
          Sorry! *blush* Couldn’t resist!

  3. Jeff says:

    ohh ohh….because…thoooooooose lazy Hazy crazy days of Summer!!!

  4. young says:

    Those “enormous blueberry buttermilk pancakes” sound really scrumptious Matt, but I’d hesitate to eat too many lest I might generate my own gravity field.

  5. Marie says:

    Love the blue berrie pancakes, Make them all the time, Blues are being picked now in B C Canada, So good for you, Just so many kind people out there, Have a great day,

  7. Christine says:

    Larry and Father Marcel, thanks for taking care of Matt. I think it would be a great experience to spend the night in a church.

  8. Christine says:

    Father Marcel looks a little like Rev. Alden from Little House on the Prairie.

  9. Pacis says:

    Only thing better than Blueberry pancakes and some skinned sausage is country folk.
    Take these two over 100 city slickers anyday.
