    Well here it is, reporting on or complsining about looters is RACIST!

    They even gots two captioned pix from two different sources with no context to prove it! So next time you see those poor and destitute individuals, you know the ones with armloads of new clothes and shoes, wading through a store’s broken doors y’all jes remembers they are wet and starving and new free duds is part of the healing process. Progs don’t want to confront the realities of crime so they work overtime finding ways to excuse the criminals.

    Morning all. Made it through the storms, kindly bleary eyed and punch drunk, but we made it. Going to rain here into tomorrow, and still have some wind, but the worst is over.

    Prayers for all who are suffering from this storm, and I hope we hear from aus soon.

    Seems a bit quiet for 7:30.

    Everyone sleeping in?

    Czar playing with the beavers?
    Irma seems to not want Czar to feel
    unappreciated. Will drop south a bit
    to wave and then head north, again.
    Luck Czar. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Czarina up early to meet the men who are prepping our soffit, facia & pergola for permanent painting. Czar is sleeping as late as the dogs will let him, what with frequent barking to let us know they see the workers on the property. It costs a lot, but at 67 I never want to have to climb the ladder to paint again, supposed to be a lifetime waranty, at least 30 years. Bright, sunny day with cloudless blue sky, still dry, supposed to be cool thru Friday. Hummingbirds are a little crazy cause I had to move their feeders off the back porch. Happy happy day to y’alll!

    What a great photo, Stella! (I love black and white.)

    So the guys are just having a little snort during the hurricane. The guy in the middle didn’t bother to take off his hat or raincoat, the man on the right has identified as a bar rag so as not to get his shoes wet. There’s a stool next to the juke box so you can sit, listen and ‘put another nickel in’ as required.

    However, some kind heart has rescued an empty stool and put it directly on the bar. Lovin’ it.

      I love that the good Samaritan didn’t give his name, “Just people ma’am. Just people who love God and want to help.” I doubt he’ll be on Facebook bragging about his good deeds. A true Christian.

      Mathew 6:2

      So when you give to the needy, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be praised by men. Truly I tell you, they already have their reward.

      Thank you god for people like this.

          They’re wonderful, Sharon. Segments of those old songs flit through my mind all the time. Hymns, choruses, Bible verses learned in our youth are never fully forgotten.

          “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” I remember the words but not the book/chapter/verse…for that we blessedly have the Internet.

    Good Morning everyone ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for breakfast, lovely images, and smiles.Today’s painting for Tipsy Tuesday:

    Escaping criticism. From 2002 to 2011, this painting went on an international tour, visiting exhibitions devoted to trompe l’oeil in Sweden, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States
    Pere Borrell del Caso (1835 โ€“ 1910) was a Spanish painter, illustrator and engraver, known for his trompe l’oeil paintings; especially “Escaping Criticism” (1874). His father was a cabinetmaker. It was by this means that he was able to support his studies at the School of Fine Arts. He also painted portraits, which made up the bulk of his work, and created religious murals in the Nazarene style. These, however, were all destroyed during the Spanish Civil War. He exhibited throughout Spain and at the Exposition Universelle (1878). He was twice offered a professorship at the Escola de la Llotja, but preferred to teach at his own private art school. His children, Julio and Ramรณn, both became painters of some note.
    I pray for safety for those in the storm’s path, for everyone in harm’s way, and for those who will die today, especially for those without time to prepare.
    I will be busy for the next month, and want everyone to know how much I appreciate your comments even though I may not respond.Thank You. I also want to try and put together some comments for the 100th anniversary of the Miracle at Fatima, which I believe is one of the most historic events of history.
    See everyone later! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Amazing how Hillary is able to do a book tour.
      Interesting that huma is still with her.

      A questioner was dragged out; instead of Hillary
      and two people waiting for Hillary to arrive (1 1/2
      hours late) needed to leave in an ambulance.

        She doesn’t buy that she turned off voters! That would be hilarious if she wasn’t so…dumb and dumber. Even bringing up the Billy Bush tape is amazing since we all know she’s married to one of three (that we know of) men–all Democrats–who groped willing and unwilling women in the White House. Give me a break!

    I’MMM BAACCK! Just a few minutes ago finally got phone and Internet. Power had gone off about 1:00 am Mon. morn and came back on late in the afternoon Mon. But, didn’t have phone or Int. until now. Everything is fine. All my trees kept the limbs and didn’t fall over. There are quite a few who fell over, though. It doesn’t appear too many fell on the buildings. Only a limb, so far, on one building.

  16. lilbirdee12โ€™s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    And, Lord, we pray for help for the people of Texas and Louisiana who are caught in the flooding. And, now we add everyone in the path of Irma to our prayer for safety.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
