Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

The Ticket Yenta, Kvetching

Okay, so I'm not exactly kvetching (Yiddish for 'complaining').

An update: Through the incredible generosity of some wonderful people on
the HOB/D list, I have been able to insure that 5 people - including a mother and daughter, two young seminarians (male and female) and a mother and her baby (On one ticket. Please be kind, people at the National Cathedral) - will be in attendance at either the investiture or seating of newly elected Katharine
Jefferts Schori.

At this writing, I do have one more woman who lives in the DC area, who
would desperately love to attend either the investiture or the seating.

So, you! Yes you. The one with the tickets. You don't really want to go
to D.C. You hate crowds. Better you should stay home. Have a sandwich.
Maybe a piece of fruit.

Send your note about unwanted tickets to either the investiture or seating
to the Ticket Yenta ( E M Kaeton at AOL dot com) and she
will fix you up with a young priest who is desperate to be in attendance at
this historic event.

Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you. No guilt. No shame.
But, please, even if you don't have a ticket to spare, call your mother. It
would be nice. And, it's been so long. It would make her so happy. And it
would take you - what? - five, maybe ten minutes. It would be a mitzvah.

God bless you.
