I am once again jumping track. Today, we had guests during our noonday prayers, Sext. A camera crew was filming the monks and guests chanting the Psalms. I rather doubt that I am in the film but for the sake of entertainment, lets just say I may be a movie star for a day.
As the film crew was walking through the dinning area, I asked them about their project. Turns out they are from the Food Network and they were touring the south making a film about Southern Cusine. The project will include Gethsemani Farms. What I did not know until just now is that Jamie and Bobby Deen (Paula Deen’s sons) are the film makers and they were here at the Abbey along with their entourage.
I have another claim to fame. While in New York City, Sallie, Liz and I dined at Felydia’s on East 58th Street. Pictured above, at our table, is Chef Lydia (between Sallie and Liz) from PBS. The Deens’ and Chef Lydia, not bad for a Countty Preacher!
I count it all joy,
