His poems are on a Facebook page. I invited those of you who I could think of off the top of my head that are on Facebook. If I missed anyone, let me know.

"We are not sinners because we sin, we sin because we are sinners."

You have wearied the LORD with your words.
“How have we wearied him?” you ask.
By saying, “All who do evil are good in the eyes of the LORD, and he is pleased with them” or “Where is the God of justice?”

Joanney, it was cool seeing that picture of your son. :) Cool that he has an interest in participating in plays.

I didn't do very well on that quiz. :( However, I think it's because I'm so young, :P so I'm pretty sure I'll get over it. ;)

Don, I think that's appalling about the electric company. And I find it hard to believe that usage was down this year. Yes, we had a mild winter, but goodness, AC units ran about steady this summer. :shock:

Greg looks like he's having fun - he reminds me of a nephew of mine, also into drama. It's so fun to see our youngsters blossom into their own areas of interest.

Anybody got an idea for our next "game" or project, for everyone's entertainment/edification? 8) I've been enjoying seeing some of our "old" porch pals stopping by for a visit. Glad to see you're still in the neighborhood! Now, I wonder what's become of our own JesusPuppy - he's been mighty scarce, at least on the porch.

I have been praying for all of you who might have been in the way of Sandy. Since I am not all that certain where everyone is on the map . . . everyone is covered in my prayers.

I do hope the good Lord has spared you of any loss and that He continues to protect you from the aftermath. I was able to watch it play out on TV and it is heartbreaking.

I am sorry to say that I believe God is sending a wake up call. The USA needs to get back to their faith and trust in Him. It seems so sad to see so many states involved . . . and with me living on the west coast . . . I know we are due for our own warning.

I pray for this country, for the presidential election coming up, for the way we are heading, and know that with gay marriage on the ballot along with legalization of marijuana in some of the states if approved we will be heading further down the path of no return.

My prayers and thoughts are with everyone . . . may the Lord keep and bless you.

Amen and Amen
When God calls me to account, what will I answer Him? Job 31:14

Looking around for Ole Blue. "Here, Blue, here, Blooooooooooooooooooooooooo! There you are, sweetie, hiding under the porch. I was sure you'd be safe. Here, I brought you some blueberry and raspberry Danish and a quart of milk! We didn't forget you. We just couldn't get here but you were in all our hearts. There, there. Good doggie. (rubbing Ole Blue's back with a warm towel) Just lie here on the hammock with me and get some sleep. I'll stay as long as you want me to. Pretty soon the others will be here and they'll be bringing some food, too. Turkey and dressing and gravy, you say? Well, I'll see if Verna will bring some from her freezer and we'll let the others decide what they want to bring to feed you.

Don't wag your tail so hard, Sweetie. It's hitting me in the face with all that mud on it. Oh, go ahead. It's ok. I can always have my jacket and pants dry cleaned,rather than putting all that doggie stuff in my washer/dryer where it would clog up all the lines. Ahh, nice doggie. I didn't know you snored so loudly. But that's ok. It's a contented snore, not like John's snore which sounds like a box car of pigs sobbing all the way to the Jimmy Dean Sausage Factory in Kansas City. I'll just slip out here so you won't notice. Nice doggy, good doggy.........

Morning y'all. Glad to see Grandma made it by to check on Blue.

Hope everybody survived Sandy's visit without any major problems. We are doing good here in central Arkansas, enjoying mid 60's, clear blue skies.

I have a couple family members who had some Sandy related problems, an aunt in Cleveland was powerless for a while. I also have an independent, rascal of an uncle (he's 92), on the coast who refuses to allow my cousins to take him home with them, who is cooking in the back yard and wearing several quilts to keep warm. Yep, gotta love him.

Had a ton of kids here last night. I bought mini bags of pretzels to give out. Upon opening the door to one group, I heard "Wow! This is where they got them!"

So I guess I made a good choice! I was concerned I'd have chocolate left sitting around the house, and since I'm really working to keep my sugar down, that wasn't a workable option for us. Won't have to worry tho, ran out of the pretzels. Last year we had maybe 5 kids, quite a difference.

We had walked down the street to the watch the kids earlier doing "Boo on the Hill" where our local merchants participate in giving out candy. Must have been a couple hundred kids there. It was fun seeing all the costumes. A lot of the adults were "dressed" as well. One mom and toddler wore matching pink tutus. Very cute on the little one, not so much on the other. Looked more like she was trying out for the dancing hippo spot in Fantasia. Which is exactly what I would have looked like had I attempted to wear such an outfit. I'm not sure I would have ever left my bedroom wearing that, but maybe she didn't have a full length mirror?

Ah well, Happy November y'all, enjoy it!

Dead ---> Read

Carole, I had to chuckle at your lovely description of the matching trix & treaters.

BeachGrandma, it was fun reading your account of you and Blue finding warm comfort together after the storm.

Laurie, it appears you and I are the only ones keeping the word game alive. :wink: For any new lurkers that don't know what's up, just take the old word, change one letter (but, don't move any letters out of their place) to a new word. Keep it going until someone stumps us with a word we cannot replace. We did accomplish that with an earlier word, back a couple pages. But, I forgot what that word was.

Oops! Time flies when you're having fun. It wasn't a couple pages, but FIVE!

Yep, coming up with another word from "atom" will be a real challenge. I think I went through the entire alphabet, trying to think what could come next.


forHIM - sorry, I missed mentioning your post in previous comment, even though it reminded me of a couple links to share (my short-term memory is mighty short!).

This is the trailer: http://agendadocumentary.com/trailer/
and this is the link to the full movie: http://vimeo.com/52009124 (worth watching IMO)

And this is the best video I've seen on the marriage issue:

Ok . . let me see if I can do this . . . head - bead . . .

Edy, will check out those videos. I rented the documentary 2016 Obama's America and will watch it tonight . . I know he is NOT the anti-christ but the way he came on to stage, won so many over so quickly, promised the world and delivered hell . . . well, you can see why so many will be deceived!

Verna, I just ordered your book of poems. Can't wait to read it. I know I will be engulfed in blessings and encouragement.

I know we can all come together in prayer for our Country and the forth coming election . . . may God's will be done. Amen and Amen!
