My favorite place to go for a field trip was always the Philadelphia Zoo. I still feel bad about feeding a large cardboard Cracker Jack box to the old elephant and him chomping away on it. Not admirable to be mean to animals.
Well…today my wife and I are heading up to the newly-opened St. Boniface up in Ephrata. I worked in the Ephrata School District for a year, about the worse year in my professional life ever. God redeemed the town for me by my attending church at Reformed Presbyterian for about a decade afterwards.
It is important for married couples to do fun stuff together and I am blessed to have a wife who likes good beer. She actually introduced me to Belgians. But, the student is now more learned than the teacher.
Now with the microbrewery in town, I might even relish further a return to Cloister-land. Search for St. Boniface on Facebook and “Like” ’em. Next week I will post about the experience. I am heading to a barbecue this evening with some buddies and I plan to bring a growler of St. Boniface plus some of my Homebrewed Belgian Quad. Getting ready to brew some Wit once the weather warms up.
