    My friends from Tennessee have made it home safely and ahead of freezing drizzle in Arkansas. Sue asked me to tell all of you how very much your thoughts and prayers mean to them, so thank you all from them, as well.

    OK, so I’m not sleeping well, … and imgur is back!
    I have 2 for today since none yesterday. They are for Col.Ken, and others who like cowboys (I like cowboys!)
    The first is a Charles Marion Russell Greeting card. I enlarged it to show the detail of what he’s holding, πŸ™‚ even though it decreased the picture quality.
    The poem goes:
    Best wishes for your Christmas
    Is all you get from me,
    ‘Cause I ain’t no Santa Claus –
    Don’t own no Christmas tree.
    But if wishes was health and money,
    I’d fill your buck-skin poke,
    Your doctor would go hungry
    An’ you never would be broke.

    The second is Cowboy Christmas Eve by Jack Sorenson

    Born in 1954, Jack Sorenson grew up living the Old West lifestyle that he now depicts in his work. Coming of age living and working at Six Gun City, a dude ranch and frontier town in the style of the Old West on the rim of the Palo Duro Canyon and owned by his father, Sorenson was deeply embedded with a love for the stories and imagery that characterized the Old West, and which continues to motivate him to this day. Whereas other teenagers spent their adolescence working in retail or fast food, Sorenson worked as a stagecoach driver, a performance gunfighter, and a horse trainer. A naturally gifted artist since childhood, Sorenson began painting full-time in 1974. After his first one-man show sold out that same year, Sorenson committed himself to a career in art and never looked back. ~ That sounds like a dream childhood, heck – a dream life to me!!

  12. I saw this article this morning:

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/after-isis-cities-mosul-iraq-in-ruins-with-little-cash-to-rebuild

    “Baghdad estimates $100 billion is needed nationwide to rebuild. …So far no one is offering to foot the bill. The Trump administration has told the Iraqis it won’t pay for a massive reconstruction drive.”

    The article is full of sadness, but you know what, I’m glad we’re not fixing Iraq’s problems. Let them foot the bill to rebuild. There’s enough stuff in the US that needs to be rebuilt.Arguably, this situation in the Middle East is Obama’s fault; he did tell the whole world when the US was pulling out. But that also begs the question of what exactly Iraq expected to happen when the US left. Why were they not getting ready to be their own independent country?

    I did not sleep much last night so I did a lot of reading.

    Protests against Islamic theocracy are wider spread than being reported. Women are confronting the Iranian Guard.

    The Iranian Guard and the Special Police have not attacked the crowd. An Iranian Guard stepped in and stopped his fellow comrades from getting physical with the crowds.

    What has changed since 2009?

    Well besides the obvious, the mullahs in 2009 called in the savages of ISIS and Hezbollah for crowd control. ISIS and Hezbollah has been decimated by the combined forces of the US military, Saudi Arabia and the Arab Joint Military Force

    A women Maryam Rajavi may very well become the new leader of Iran. Remember her name.

    This is not a protest about economics it is a protest about Islamic Theocracy.

    Death to the Dictator”

    “Death to Rouhani.”

    The mullahs would do well to remember the last moments of Moammar Ghadafi.

    More duplicity from the jihad…

    International media claim that amputee was β€œkilled by the IDF” turns out to be more β€œPalestinian” deception
    December 29, 2017 by Robert Spencer

    β€œWar is deceit,” said Muhammad, and the β€œPalestinians” have turned deceit into an art form, with willing help from the international media.

    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.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
