   Iacta alea est  Tonite, 2 of my former teammates (H.S. football )- out of the blue- rang my doorbell and demanded I accompany them to our old H.S. to watch the football game. I hadn't seen either one in 14 years. We had a wonderful time. It was very nice to be thought of by these Bob Seeger said in one of his songs..."see some old friends, good for the soul..." God is good, and I am grateful

   Ole buzzard  As you may or may not know, the weather in eastern Washington State has been hot and extremely dry. Fellow L-Dotter Eagle's Dominion lives in this area, and a forest fire started yesterday just 10 miles from his house. While it is still early, and crews are on it, any shift or increase in the wind could change things dramatically.

A few prayers for E.D.'s safety certainly couldn't hurt.

   Bettijo  God does not hate gays. God loves us all. God hates sin. He said to hate the sin but love the sinner. God gave us free will to choose whether to sin or not. Unfortunately we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God. God's grace will save us if we repent and sin no more. That is the key, "sin no more." I doubt there is a hierarchy of sins; some sins worse than others. But, I do know that legalizing sin, things we know are abhorrent to God, i.e., abortion (murder ), sodomy, etc. is condemning our entire country. God has blessed us mightily, and I fear his justified wrath. You can be sure His judgment is coming.

   Bettijo  THE WORLD IS MINE - Author Unknown

Today, upon a bus, I saw a very beautiful woman and wished I were as beautiful. When suddenly she rose to leave, I saw her hobble down the aisle. She had one leg and used a crutch. But as she passed, she smiled. Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. I have two legs; the world is mine.

I stopped to buy some candy. The lad who sold it had such charm. I talked with him, he seemed so glad. If I were late, it would do no harm. And as I left, he said to me, "I thank you, you've been so kind. It's nice to talk with folks like you. You see," he said, "I'm blind." Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. I have two eyes; the world is mine.

Later while walking down the street, I saw a child I knew. He stood and watched the others play, but he did not know what to do. I stopped a moment and then I said, Why don't you join them dear?" He looked ahead without a word. I forgot, he couldn't hear. Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. I have two ears; the world is mine.

With feet to take me where I'd want to go, With eyes to see the sunset's glow. With ears to hear what I would want to know. Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. I've been blessed indeed, the world is mine.

   Surfhut  My life has been off the charts stressful for a couple of months. A dear family member passed away. The father of a dear friend passed away. My job has been extremely stressful. I'm by nature a glass is half full person, but was teetering on becoming a glass is half empty person. It scared me. Then ... BOOM ... my little sister became a grandmother. Into this world, the lives of people I love the most, and my life came a gift from God. My glass is full. Thank you, Lord!

   Balogreene  It gets so hard sometimes, Surf.

When I came back from Oklahoma, my boss (a retired Lt. Col, who tries not to notice women because it might be sexual harassment ) told me I looked so good, relaxed, happy, well-rested, and maybe I lost weight. I've lost close to 50 lbs in the last two years, but let him believe it was OK that did it : )

It just took some good time with family to finally bring me back to my senses. A new great-niece must be great. Have fun with the whole family!
