  2. “If Trump is the clenched fist of the American people, Kid Rock is the middle finger that comes after the punch is thrown, at the very moment when the New Left expects an apology from those who dared to even challenge it.” quote from:

    This is worth the read, provocative, insightful, & unexpected. Enjoy!

      Good morning Lburg. Plans for a fabulous day?

      Hmmm…. Lets say I left specific instruction for a particular event that I have been in charge of for about a decade. I printed clear instructions out. Explained the essentials to 3 different people. Called 2 people to make sure that they did an essential part correctly last week. Found out last night the essential part was not done and I will lose about 4 hours of my day today trying to right their mistake. Oh. The event makes about 25,000 dollars for a charity. I may just take the reigns back.

      It is what it is.

      😊

      But Hillary is still not president, President Trump is still annoying the hell out of the Leftist’s world, we are trying to right America, God is good, my dogs are snuggled up next to me, the sun is shinning and my English breakfast tea is hot.

      Life is good!

        Ah. But even work we don’t want to do is fabulous sometimes, dear Lovely. The group most affected by others’ inability to follow directions would have been the charity. So just go on being your fabulous self doing fabulous (even if unwelcome) ‘schtuff’.

        You don’t need to take back the reins. You just need to find people more like yourself who are completely committed to getting things done.

          If it weren’t for charity (a worthy local one) I’d walk away but if I don’t do it it’s not going to get done.

          I’ll never forget bringing groceries to a young women and her popping open a ravioli can and eating it straight out of the can because she had no food.

For some reason it also makes me think of this scriptural passage “Physician heal thyself!” I haven’t lived up to nor solved the mystery of any of those statements…Blessings & please make a prayerful decision.

              Thank you Valerie. I like it. I did it, it was not hard, not complicated, just time and effort, people are strange, I’m not sure why things need to be feared or blown out of proportion, do the best you can and move on. I never ask people to do something I wouldn’t do, except things I’m physically not able of doing.

    Sorry, things have been busy this week. We’ll be out of town this weekend and when you have animals that means a lot of stuff to do to prepare to leave that long.

    I do have a good and bad update on our racer friend. He is out of the medically induced coma and is off the ventilator. He’s still not fully awake because they have him on lots of pain meds, but he is responding to his family. He did have to lose his arm. I can’t remember if I told ya’ll that. I feel so sorry for him, especially if he doesn’t remember all that has happened, that has to be horrible to wake up in a hospital with a trach, not being able to speak with burns all over your body and your arm missing. It’s been a long road and he still has a long road in front of him, but hopefully the true healing of his mind and body can start now.

    When he’s ready they do have two different people with prosthetic companies who are going to come talk to him.
    After being moved to OKC they discovered some parts of his body were burned worse than Tulsa said. Some they rated as 2nd degree were in reality 3rd degree and some of the 3rd degree were actually 4th degree.

        Thank you both. His mom and dad are tough cookies, I don’t think his mom has been more than 30 minutes away from the hospital since the night it happened. His dad has only left long enough to go home every few days to take care of things at home and wash clothes.
        His kids of course have school and my daughter keeps having to assure the one daughter that it is what he want. He wouldn’t want her to put her life on hold to sit at the hospital when she can’t do anything. She calls the hospital twice a day and calls her grandma every evening so she can talk to her Dad and goes up every weekend.

        One thing it has shown me is that there are still a lot of good people in the world, the help they have received and money that has been raised is amazing.
        A local girl was killed in an auto accident this past weekend and the locals have really stepped up to help out her family as well. Local businesses have been donating 10% of their profits to help pay funeral expenses and a benefit was held and raised over $5000 in just a few hours.

      So sorry Michelle, we continue to pray. He is blessed to have his family, friends and the racing community surrounding him. There is nothing easy about this. I can’t imagine a vibrant young man’s life changing in such a dramatic way. He has much to live for I hope his spirit heals along with his body and he experiences the joy of life and love and the peace of God.

        I know most of us old farts know this, but we everyone should be blessed that they have today, because you never know what tomorrow will bring.

        He has lots of friends and has touched lots of lives we’ve learned. Him being a divorced man, ate out a lot and you go to those places he ate at all the time, people tell you how much they miss him. He loves his kids so I know he’ll get through this for them. It sounds horrible to say, but he has his life and that is all thanks to God and all the people who have called out to him. I’m one of those who believes God has a plan for all of us and he wasn’t done with him yet.

        Those young teens, just starting their lives in college is kind of hard for me to take. I didn’t know any of them and they were from all over, but their families had just sent them out into the world and all had to receive that call that their children were gone. I know it happens every day, but as a parent I can’t imagine the pain they’re going through. Five young lives gone because kids never think it can happen to them, speeding down an unfamiliar dangerous road.

          The 5 young people is so sad. I lost a 2 friends not long after high school because they thought drinking boating and speeding in shallow water was a good mix. They both drowned in less than 2 feet of water. One left a wife and little girl behind.

            My first thought was they probably had been drinking and it is a very curvy and hilly road. LE said no alcohol or drugs were in their systems, but that they were driving way in excess of the speed limit.
            I am very familiar with the road, drove it a lot when I was a teen and it is a road you better be paying attention to the speed limit signs before the curves. The majority of them have a 15 mph limit for a reason. I’m not sure exactly how they died, they hit the guardrail and landed upside down in the creek below, it’s fairly shallow this time of the year. Only one was wearing a seat belt, but I don’t know if they were knocked out and drowned or were just driving so fast that impact killed them.
            I’ve never been one who liked to see a bunch of teens together in one vehicle.

Complex medical journeys are an extremely tough long haul. Thank you for supporting your friend & his family so much. Your tenacity blesses me from afar (having lived near solo through many complex medical situations with my disabled son)…

            I’m hoping that now he’s out of critical condition, she can go home and get a little rest. Although, I know as a mother you probably still would get no rest from worrying because you are not there.

            Physically he’s doing lots better, although now that he’s awake a few more problems they didn’t know about have cropped up. Mentally, he’s having a rough time. They keep sedating him after a few hours and each time he wakes up he’s having to be told again what has happened. They say that is normal and is caused by the medication. It’s hard on the family though and he’s not accepting the loss of his arm well. Hopefully when he’s no longer needing to be sedated he can start to come to grips with it, instead of it being new to him every time he wakes up. I’m sure he’s scared, he still can’t talk, he doesn’t understand why he can’t feel his arm and doesn’t really understand what’s going on. He knows all of his family and is interacting with them, laughing and crying, nodding his head, mouthing words to them, etc.

                    He’s coming to terms with it and has been in better spirits, joking with family members. They’re not keeping him on so many pain killers anymore so I think being able to be awake more is helping. Before they were keeping him on constant pain meds plus sedating him and I think waking up and reliving it again and again was not allowing him time to come to terms with it.

                    There is still the chance of infections from what I understand and still a lot of healing but each day he’s improving now.

    Good morning all! And happy autumn equinox (or soon if not exactly). We finally have a few days of respite from constant rain and it is so good to see the mountains again. It’s a better Indian summer (can I say that?) than it was actual summer. But fall is so here. We awaken to 38 degrees in the morning and the trees are bright yellow all around. The sun’s rising at 8 and setting at 8, and from here we’ll get darker very quickly. DH and I are planning a trip to Alabama to visit family in about 3 weeks where my weather app says it’s still near 90 degrees in the afternoons, and I can’t wait. We’ve had such a cool, rainy summer it will feel great to bake in the heat for a week before facing the Alaskan winter.

    In other news, great article from Daniel Greenfield yesterday:

    http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/267923/why-obama-really-spied-trump-daniel-greenfield#.WcJnsPVvjNQ.twitter

    The hysterical obsession with destroying Trump comes from the top down. It’s not just ideology. It’s wealthy and powerful men and women who ran the country and are terrified that their crimes will be exposed.

    It’s why the media increasingly sounds like the propaganda organs of a Communist country. Why there are street riots and why the internet is being censored by Google and Facebook’s β€œfact checking” allies.

    It’s not just ideology. It’s raw fear.

    The left is sitting on the biggest crime committed by a sitting president. The only way to cover it up is to destroy his Republican successor.

    A turning point in history is here.

    If Obama goes down, the left will go down with him. If his coup succeeds, then America ends.

    Lincoln Memorial vandalized by student from Kyrgyz Republic

    Where the heck is the Kyrgyz Republic, you might ask? Sounds like it’s one of those many countries made up out of the old Soviet Union.

    Had to look it up: Kyrgyzstan is a rugged Central Asian country along the Silk Road, the ancient trade route between China and the Mediterranean. The Tian Shan mountains, which surround the old caravan route and dominate the country, are home to snow leopards, lynx and sheep. In the south, the millennia-old city of Osh has a huge, busy bazaar that was once a stop on the Silk Road.

    Capital and largest city: Bishkek
    Population: 6.083 million (2016)
    Official languages: Kyrgyz, Russian

    https://www.google.com/destination?q=Kyrgyz%20Republic&sa=X&site=search&output=search&dest_mid=%2Fm%2F0jt3tjf&tcfs=%5B%5D

    BTW, 83% of the population is–you guessed it–Muslim. Wonder if Vandalism Boy is an adherent of the ROP.

    Sometimes it seems that the fall of the Soviet Union wasn’t such a good idea after all except it pretty much enabled full sovereignty for those nations which were not the USSR but were under its domination such as Hungary, Romania, Poland, etc.

      If this case goes to court ( I doubt it will) I imagine Flores will lose. He can’t claim excessive force when he brought a gun and knife to commit a felony, Flores stabbed Jerri in the neck, Jerri was under no moral or legal obligation to do anything other than fight with the full force that was brought against him.

      And why didn’t the Starbucks baristas help Jerri? Spineless punks.

      I do have a lovely thought in my head, imagine Flores sues Jerri and Starbucks (no reason to sue only Jerri who obviously has a bottom to his well from which money can be drawn) so imagine that it makes it court, some scumbag attorney sues Jerri and Starbucks for big money and Flores wins the civil suit, his momma reaches her grubby hands out for the check as Flores rots in jail….. The long arm of law reaches out and slaps momma’s hand down and says “Here is our version of Son of Sam Law, that money goes to Jerri because your son stabbed him in the neck in the commission of a felony.”

      A girl can dream πŸ™‚ .

        I like that senecio, Jerri can only receive monies for the treatment of injuries sustained. Pain and Suffering maybe, future treatment needs for sustained injuries, yes. The Deep pockets here is Starbucks, not Jerri. Jerri acted to prevent a commission of a felony.
        We will see what the court will do……..

  15. lilbirdee12’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 all the people who have been affected by the earthquakes and hurricanes.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

  16. The guy who filmed me playing a piano a month or so ago… he’s still searching. All he knows, from the second day I worked here, is that I believe the Gospel, and the Bible.

    He tries daily to get me to argue with him. It’s not possible, though, for a couple of reasons. One: he wants to win, always, in every competitive endeavor. Two: he does not know how to have a conversation, like Lewis and Tolkein and the Inklings did, but instead interprets every comma in speech as “it’s my turn to talk”, instead of letting the person talk until they gesture that they are passing the mic (as it were).

    I’ve read probably 20 “versions” of the Bible, aside the KJV, and this guy, who knows so freakin’ much about so many subjects that he thinks he knows the Bible, is adamant, every day, about trying to tell me it’s all a bunch of BS, and “quoting” a bunch of stuff I know doesn’t exist in the Bible. And yet I don’t ever proselytize to him. I asked him that yesterday. “Why do you proselytize, and we Christians don’t? Isn’t that what you folks always complain that we do?” And yet, I’ve never debated it with him. He sure wants to, though, like he’s seeking. He knows everything, though. His only rule is “Win.” My only rule is “Love.”

    And yet he thinks he’s losing his mind. He told me yesterday “I’m losing my mind.” And he believes that. He also told me yesterday “The only entity I have faith in is ME.”. I said, “Do you? You keep telling us you’re losing your mind! Do you really have faith in You?”

    He complains about God sentencing people to Hell for his capriciousness, and so I can’t possibly believe in a God like that, but then, he said, “I’m gonna have to face that.” I said, “Are you? What are you going to have to face?”

    Pray for my friend, folks. This guy has petit mal and grand mal seziures. On a regular basis.`
