Made on Earth“, the iconic, landmark store in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire (the ‘Oldest Summer Resort‘ in the US), and I go back 25-years when I first started visiting them and getting to know the owners and their son. Well, last year, ‘Mary Beth’, the famous owner, asked me to help her with her Website. That was special. So, it is not often that I can visit Wolfeboro without stopping by “Made on Earth“.

That was also the case yesterday and in the Summer there is an added bonus. Mary Beth maintains an exquisite plot of earthly delights in from of her store. So, here are some pictures from Mary Beth’s “Made on Earth”. They were too delectable to be lumped in with my other pictures of ‘The Flowers of Wolfeboro — July 9, 2018‘.

Enjoy. If you are in Wolfeboro you really must swing by. It will make you smile, inside and out.

Back in, alway delightful, Wolfeboro, New Hampshire — the ‘Oldest Summer Resort‘ in the US within 72-hours of the last trip, this time for an orthodontist consult. [No, No. I am not getting braces.]  This time I explored other parts of town and inevitably there were flowers aplenty. So, here is a sampling. I took more but there is only so much I can post. I do have a specialized batch that I plan to post later. OK? Enjoy.

Next Camerlengo IF It Isn’t Cardinal Pietro Parolin.

I am still fairly confident that the new Camerlengo will be the Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin. That is the logical pick.

But, if Pope Francis decides against Parolin here are some other viable names.

There are only two criteria that a Camerlengo needs to meet. He needs to be a Cardinal Elector and he needs to be permanently resident in Rome, The latter being why the Camerlengo is invariably a curalist. Being a seasoned curialist also helps in that the Camerlengo must know how to get things done within the Vatican.

Other than the under-80 requirement to be a Cardinal Elector there is no other age constraints. So, the pope could pick a cardinal in his mid- or late-70s. But, I don’t think that is likely to happen. But, it also depends as to when the Pope thinks the next conclave is likely to be. His unexpected creation of the four irregular Cardinal Bishops is an indication that he thinks that we will have a conclave sooner than later; i.e., within the next 2.5 years.

So, the above 6 is my first cut. I could be dead wrong on these. Basically food for thought.

Let me know what you think. Again, please remember that I think that Cardinal Pietro Parolin is, indubitably, the first pick.
