Casually Chic, No Weeds Allowed

This Sunday In California: The room is warm and I’m sleepy. This mass starts at 10:30, an hour and a half later than the mass we attended in VA. I’ve been up since 6:30, because I’m stuck in a hotel room with two dogs whose whining to potty I cannot ignore. It’s the wheat and Want More?
