Ten seconds and then he moved

Robin dropped off at the family party to celebrate my Dad joining the Catholic church. However as soon as I wielded my pen he woke up and decided it was time to go home.

Well, you got a good likeness down in 10 seconds! Well done. On another note, what spurred your dad to join a new church in his later years? That's got be fairly uncommon -- changing allegiances late in life. Interesting.

Dad's been attending the Catholic Church for 50 years – it's taken this long for the his views and that of the church to get closer and closer until he was ready to make it formal. Either that or he thinks that God is a Catholic and he's getting ready to meet his maker!

Ten seconds! Wow, and it's enough. Your Dad - after fifty years going formal? I am happy with the local Roman Catholic scene and I love the Jesuit guys and lots of nuns but at the top it's getting conservative ain't it!
