Needmore Days

It was the wildest night around Uncle Gordon’s house since the time Dooley put the Arthritis Hot Rub Ointment into the Preparation H tube. That caused some real excitement for Aunt Alvie, and eventually caused some problems for Dooley as well. But, that is another story and we will tell about that some other time.

If you are movie buff, you know which movie this line belongs to, "You’re gonna need a bigger boat." When a great white was recently spotted on the Massachusetts coast line, this famous quote was drawn in the sand. In case you still don’t know, this line is from the movie ‘Jaws’. However, when I hear this quote, I think of another sea … in another time and place. It reminds me of Peter.

After God delivered the nation of Israel from Egyptian bondage, He gave very specific instructions as to the building of the Ark of the Covenant and tabernacle. He gave exact dimensions, material to be used, and even the colors to be used. "You shall make a veil woven of blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine woven linen. It shall be woven with an artistic design of cherubim. You shall hang it upon the four pillars of acacia wood overlaid with gold. Their hooks shall be gold, upon for sockets of silver. And you shall hang the veil from the ...

The Amen Corner

 

Belated happy Labor Day! I used to get confused as to why we celebrate Labor Day and then, for most of us, it is a holiday! I did some research on this topic and learned a lot. Labor Day, in the beginning, was recognized and celebrated based on the labor unions' contribution to the labor unions' higher standard of living. Aha! The first Labor Day Parade took place in New York City in 1892. It began as a festival for workers and their families. The first Monday in September was selected as a legal holiday for Labor Day. President Woodrow ...

The Amen Corner

I first saw him on the other side of the street. His clothes were worn and tattered, and he seemed to mumble to himself as he searched through the trash can on the corner, hoping to find something from the night before. Tourists on Beale Street were wasteful, but it was to his advantage. You never knew what you mind find in the trash bins of Beale Street. Unfortunately, it seemed city workers were out earlier than the old man. In the early morning hours, few tourists were around to witness the scene. The few who did seemed to turn ...

Lots of rain falling this afternoon on the mountain, stopping me from mowing the yards. Probably have to wait at least a day before I can get back to the mowing as it rained so much. The weather guys and gals were surprised this happened, as they weren’t predicting it.

I could never understand why my mother had so much trouble understanding what the real problem was when I had trouble with my ugly sisters. Yes Mama… I did step on her fingers when she was climbing up in the barn loft just as she reached the top rung. And yes she did fall out backward, and yes she did thump the ground pretty hard, and yes she did cry a right smart. But she was still able to walk when she got her breath back and stood up...
