A Photo Post

Because I need a break from writing the Monster Research Paper and don't have the brain cells to post about I would write about if I could round up the little flock of ideas I have on the topic. As is, they will graze happily a little longer and you will get pictures, oh happy few who are my dear readers.

Below are pictures I took of my bookshelf back at the beginning of the semester when I had time to organize my books. No, I will not post pictures of what my shelf looks like now.

Fr. Lasance is amazing, is he not? I have the same exact book.
