Yes, we are back home. I’m not certain how long we’ll be back but we are definitely back for a spell. Please keep the prayers going. Our grandson is holding his own, but as we have learned during the past weeks this is a long long process with many many ups and downs along the way. It truly is a roller coaster.
I will start picking away at catching up on Sylvia’s Site . There has been no shortage of news of scandals while I was away. has there? But, as hard as it is to stomach at times and as often as I remind myself, in truth, it’s all for the best.

(1) Father Joe LeClair
It’s nigh to four short years since Father Joe LeClair was released from jail, having served 2/3 of of a one year sentence for theft and fraud which transpired while he was pastor at Blessed Sacrament Roman Catholic Church in Ottawa, Ontario. And, it’s been a little over two years since Father LeClair entered a guilty plea to charges related to drunk driving in Guelph Ontario where he had been recycled shortly after he got out of jail (he served as an assistant at St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church).
I have said it before and will say it again. Father LeClair should be defrocked. He needs to take care of his own soul and get it in order. There are no favours being done here, for Father LeClair or anyone else.
That’s all I will say right now.
(2) Father Barry McGrory
I am saddened to read that one the Father Barry McGrory complainants has died. My he now rest in peace.
And, a trial date has finally been set for this previously convicted priest:
As I say. I will pick away at getting articles posted in the coming days. I will also do my best to get back to those of you who contacted me by email over the past weeks. And, I will try to post a nice picture from Scotland or Ireland with each blog . Here’s today’s”
Yes, this is a two lane road, this one in the Inishowen peninsula en route to to Malin Head, Ireland’s most northerly point. And yes, we managed to get by 🙂
