We know where the story goes from there — Jesus performs another miracle, turning close to nothing into a feast, satisfying all who were hungry.

This causes a lot of dust on my patio/patio furniture and neighbors pools.

The pilot had just given the all-clear for electronic devices, which left me free to rummage under the seat in front of me for my laptop.
