Hey. Thanks for the welcome. The people in my town and my own family can be extremely hostile and almost like a pack of wild dogs jumping on a rabbit when it comes to their religion. I've challenged some of the things they have said, but I've never "outted" myself. It's so strange, everyone just assumes that everyone in this town in a christian. Because of this, they say the most outrageous things.
Hey Joseph! Sorry for the late reply. Yes, that's a dog toy. One of those you can throw on the ground and it bounces in any direction. Very unpredictable, very fun. :)
Hey Joseph, Joplin is doing well with the rebuilding. :) You can still see where it all went down but there are new buildings going up all the time.
