Today’s Bible Lesson
In today’s world with President Trump getting hit daily I decided a little Bible Lesson might be appropriate. Remember what Jesus said: “Goats on the left, sheep on the right” (Matthew 25:33). Jesus also told Peter that if he wanted to catch fish, to do it from the right side of the boat. He did and filled the boat with fish.
John 21:6 (NIV) He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.” Origin of Left & Right. I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the “right” and Liberals are called the “left”.
By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible: Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV) – “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.” Thus sayeth the Lord. Amen. It surely can’t get any simpler than that.

End of lesson. Test to follow on November 6, 2018. Remember, November 2018 is to be set aside as rodent removal month. Please share this Bible Lesson with all your friends and email buddies to help achieve that goal. Never grow a wishbone where a backbone ought to be…
I received the above text from my old friend Dave back home in frozen Michigan. I claim no copyright to the text but I do most certainly agree with it! Politics are just plain old bullshit.
Well, sort of. I had a pound of beef thawed that needed to be cooked, and some canned kidney beans and diced tomatoes left over from my last pot of chili. Better to have too much right? So I threw this half ass chili meal together and pounded down most of it! And it was kind of an angry meal too. A distraction from what I awoke to, freshly awakened. My bank told me I have an overdraft!
Ummm, no. Not possible. Without mentioning numbers, it was no where near zero. Basically leaping out of bed I grabbed the laptop and pulled up my bank. The reason for the overdraft was obvious. Seems the ex wife had deposited her alimony check when I told her specifically yesterday that she needs to wait until I say it’s OK to make the deposit. Thanks for the apology Miss X but…
My text this morning asked her – did you make the deposit? her: Yes. me: I told you to please wait until Monday! her: I’m sorry, I misunderstood you. me: Yes you did but it’s OK, I have an overdraft of $77 dollars. her: Do you want me to send you money? me: No, I’ll manage. (as my blood pressure rises)
And that was the blunt end of that text exchange this morning. And the reason I whipped up that meal, a release for some angry energy. It could be worse of course and I’m glad the alimony is less than six months from being completed. I tell people it’s three strikes, I’m out of the marriage game for good. I’m not marriage material and will remain single going forward, it’s not worth it.
Oh 2018 – what surprises do you hold?
A new TV commercial on my local cable provider associates Christmas (Real meaning – Birth of Jesus Christ) with making purchases at this big box store. Music in the background inserts the word(s) Hallelujah. Seriously? Surely you jest… Shameful. ✝️
So I was watching Star Trek as usual when the banging began. After a moment, I walked out to the porch and suddenly was standing in dirt. And dirt was falling on my head. I backed off, trying to get the attention of the banger upstairs balcony.
No luck. I’ll mention it to XXXXX next time, it’s actually funny to me. It’s nice to have a small but powerful handheld electric blower in the closet… Dirt go away…
This woman is busted! Don’t text and drive. That phone call or that text can wait.
