I used to hate my old fashioned name, but over the years I've come to really like the name my parents gave me. Like you said, acceptance of ourselves!!!

No rain here until about 3 hours ago and then it came all at once with some high winds and even knocked out my tv signal, but not my nap. LOL

I have been tall since teen years, but really skinny and people would say that if I wore a red neck tie that I would be mistaken for a thermomter. So my acceptance of myself came at about age 35 when I gained about 70 pounds and crested over 200 and quit being a temperature guage. LOl

Here we sit. This is the day chosen to have the July 4th fireworks that was cancelled because of rain . We are all wearing jackets and covered with blankets because the rain cooled things down, way down. There's still some lightening and some sprinkles but they've pulled The fireworks out of the barn . 20 minutes of fantastic fireworks!! Here we go!!!!!

AW and Miss E!! LOL You two are nut cases!! LOL. Luv it!!

Oh, before the fireworks my cousin and I did some mattress surfing. Before your mind goes in the gutter, this involves a 4 wheeler with a rope attached to the hitch and to an old mattress. As they say, it's all fun till someone gets hurt. Cousin got the breath knocked out of her when She tumbled off the mattress on a particularly sharp curve. Oops.
Fireworks were great! Rain started back up as the last one was shot! Grabbed my chair and covers and headed for the car. Great evening!

I hate it when that happens.
Sometimes the old stick of dynamite turns out to be a durned dud. A man thinks he has the fuse lit good and then it just goes kaput instead of KABOOM...
We have to be satisfied remembering all the demolition in the past I guess.
My 34 year old brunet, on again off again .... little philly, just dont understand that. She left happy tonight though.
:) I'm happy too.
Una would have said: AH yes, you have sinned again old pal.
You better go pay pastor fat wallet Sunday morning.
Where was it you had to go again? Ah yes...The First Church of Discount Sin.
I'll pull up to the drive through window and get the $99.95 90 day salvation package. That's a whole lot of salvation folks...for $99.95.
I can see old pastor fat wallet go SOP to the pocket with that money now.

Fine day to All.I would like to visit Florence and Venice one day maybe the Scottish Highlands. There are so many gorgeous places and such poignant and fascinating history.
Misty I always had a weakness for brunettes, and blonds, and raven haired women, but especially those meek and mild (yeah right) red headed women. MissE has been killing me with that red hair and those red pumps and those green eyes, and I would just bet a dark tan to go with all of that...MMM MMM MMM Man oh man.
I think I might have to call my little philly and convince her to come back again tomorrow night.

You know I have half a mind to go sign up for a civil war history class through adult education down in town. I know that's just a fancy name for old folks classes but I think it would be interesting. I might check into that next week.
I took one long ago but the professor seemed to have no interest in the subject at all. Back then I wondered why he even taught it. The whole class consisted of turning in the review questions at the end of each chapter each week and that was it. He would always dismiss what was supposed to be a 90 min class after 20 mins or so. No real lectures to speak of, no papers, nothing!
I have held that against him for a lot of years. That was a good forum, wasted.

I have a sneaking feeling that he is somewhere smiling too. If there was ever a man that believed in the Savior, it was TUF. He had to be some kind of geniouse wheather it was formaly recognized or not.
XD
I am tuckered out missE, A very goodnight to you, may your dreams be of sweet things in plenty.

I bet old Wolf knows where the slang term "tuckered out" came from.
Probably some lazy guy by the name of tucker got it started. LOL

He did know much about the Scriptures, more so than most people including me. Many people considered his sarcastic humor as blasphemy against GOD. But I did not consider it to be such at all but more directed toward those people that considered religous dogmas to just be big business or misdirected fanaticism. I agreed with that.

My understanding of "tuckered out", is just a derivative of "tuck" meaning to fold and straigten and put things away to be used later such as tucking in your bed copvers. So being tuckered out means you just don't have the energy for doing anything more at the moment other that putting things away in preparation for later use.(Old Willy for example lol)

It stormed here most all night with heavy thunder rocking the old Homestead and keeping me and the dog awake, but not frightened. You folks have a good day and I trust all are safe. We had a couple guys struck by lightening and killed a few days ago while hanging tobacco in a barn. Some others were injured.

Confederate Capt. Adam "StovePipe" Johnson of Henderson Kentucky needed some weapons. So he attacked Newburgh, Indiana with 2 "cannons" one being a blackened log and the other being a piece of stovepipe. The Yankees gave up their muskets without a fight.

My disdain for television ministries (and possibly Una's) along with the story of Stovepipe Johnson's Civil War hoax, reminds me of one of my favorite classic movies. Sinclair Lewis 1927 story portrayed in the 1960 film by Burt Lancaster as "Elmer Gantry". Good Day folks, time for me to get ready for "The Little Brown Church in the Wildwood" that is not so little anymore and no longer brown.

LOL He bluffed those Union Hoosiers out of their wepons, didn't he wolf?
I found the following on an Indiana Government History site.

On July 18, 1862, a brash young Kentuckian with aspirations to military advancement, Adam R.“Stovepipe” Johnson, used a rowboat and a small flatboat ferry to lead a group of approximately thirty men across the Ohio River from Kentucky to Newburgh, Indiana. Landing on the waterfront, unoccupied at lunch time, Johnson and his men seized a small store of weapons from a riverside warehouse and bluffed a group of some eighty Union soldiers convalescing in a nearby hotel into surrendering their unloaded muskets. Johnson’s men then looted a few homes and stores, paroled their prisoners, and returned safely across the river with their booty. The entire action lasted only a few hours.

-The article went on to recount how Union Captain Bethell, recovered a portion of the stolen arms—as well as his local reputation—at a farm in Henerson Kentucky some time later..
Just as one would expect from an Indiana source. LOL
So they got some of the muskets back, big deal. That still doesn't change the fact that "Stovepipe" bluffed them out.

Thank you wolf. That was a worthwhile read.

Well at least you have reached an age and a level of common sense that allows you to keep things well in perspective, organized religion included. If the minister at your church called upon the congregation to go out tonight and burn someone at the stake... for say, witchcraft...would you be in that crowd Old Wolf? I think not.

LOL I remember when the Jim Bakker-Jessica Hahn sex scandal made all the headlines and the nightly news...I was working for a concrete outfit at the time and the site manager had let it out that he had sent in 600 bucks to old Jim a week or so before all that scandal stuff came out. Man we all gave that fellow a hard time for months over that.
I bet you remember old Oral Roberts telling his "flock" that God had personally told him that if he didn't raise eight million dollars by a certain date God was going to call him home....
I wonder what Jesus would have done to old Oral's corporate headquarters if he had shown up right after Oral claimed all that nonsense in the name of the Lord?
Perhaps he would have overturned all their benches of .....paper doves. And told them not to make a pure den of thieves out to be servants of the good and merciful Lord.
I wonder how many gullible poor went hungry back then because they sent him their money?
No one is without sin including me for sure, I can attest to that from personal experience.
But that Oral Roberts claim, in my opinion, was closer to blasphemy than anything we have read here on this thread.

My favorite was the television evangelist that needed plastic surgery because he said laying his head on the prayer request of his followers had caused the ink from the letters to seep into his skin and caused wrinkles.
Really?
I actually went to the Heritage USA / PTL theme park when it was open. It was interesting. I wonder what ever happened to that place, it was massive!

And I bet that site did not tell you that when the Yankees occupied Stovepipe's hometown of Henderson, that he and and 2 other guys snuck in around dark and fired on their headquarters running around the brick house where they were located and were firing shotguns at will thus the "Battle of Henderson". The Union soliers scattered back into the house firing blinding out of the upper windows and proceeded to kill a hog and it tracked around the house obviously "bleeding like a stuck hog" and these fine marksmen claimed they had killed or wounded 'a many a rebel" while StovePipe and is two associates went off into a nearby field and slept soundly for the rest of the night. LOL The Evansville Journal grabbed the headlines : "BLOODY WAR ON THE BORDER, Provost Guard attacked by 300 guerillas. After a deperate resistance of over 9 hours, THEY SUCCEED IN DRIVING OFF THE ENEMY WITH HEAVY LOSS", Just too too funny.
