Jumping to Conclusions: Bad Exercise

Happy hunter with sloth. Very good eating! And No, they are NOT a protected species.

It was Friday, July 31, 1987, when I heard the news on Brazilian radio. “A major tornado has hit a provincial capital in southern Canada.” I listened carefully, expecting to hear about Toronto, Ontario which is on the same latitude as South Dakota.

I was participating in the annual writers’ conference of the Inscribe Christian Writers Fellowship.
