Guns, Children, and Death

How ironic is it that a man who works at a gun range is shot, and killed, by a nine year old? The man was teaching her to shoot an uzi. I know many people won't like this but I find a kind of poetic…Continue

About Me:
I'm the only atheist I know. My family are all hard core christians. They know I'm atheist and pray for me a lot. I tell them I can't go to hell because I don't believe in it. I like gardening and my dogs. I like the fall. I hate the heat. Well,hate is a strong word,but I don't like it much at all.

I like to work in my yard. Garden would be a stretch. It's just a really large yard,about two acres, with lots of shrubs and plants. My star magnolia is my favoite shrub. I raised it from a twig a friend gave me. It's two years old and about two feet tall now. It blooms early with an amazing, fragrant,white flower.

If you can't do your job, due to your religion, should you have the job???

Posted on December 11, 2013 at 2:42pm 10 Comments

I was standing in the check-out line at the local Walmart (in Central City,Ky) when the line was stopped.  The cashier refused to check the lady ahead of me because she was buying beer.   Me, being me, asked what the problem was? The clerk said she couldn't scan the beer because "It"s against my religious convictions".  So the lady with the beer, and I, had to wait until a manager was called up to scan the beer onto the ticket. 

I laughed about it.  It's so outlandish!  So, the…

Racism and Keeping My Mouth Shut.

Posted on November 23, 2013 at 11:01am 9 Comments

A few years ago I was at the local country store. It's what passes as a restaurant in these parts. While I was sitting there, reading the weekly paper, a young man came in and started running his mouth to the clerk.  He was talking about a national sports incident where a black football player had a domestic violence incident with his white girlfriend. 

He threw around the n word a LOT.  "Fucking n***** with a white women.  That's disgusting...."  He continued on in this vein for…

What's a black president to do??

Posted on October 9, 2013 at 4:25pm 18 Comments

First off I'm not a blogger but I have a question/statement that doesn't seem to go anyplace else.          

  Am I the only one who thinks the president has given in to the repubicans enough?  This last go around about death benefits for veterans families.  I can see where the families need the money.  I would certainly fall into that category.  But....if Obama gives in here isn't he just setting himself up for more piecemeal,paying out to progams of the republicans choosing?  And…

Kathy, thanks so much for the wonderful comment!  I appreciate your well wishes.  You and others here have made such a positive impact on me, especially when times are rough.  Thanks again.  Carl  :)

k.h., thanks for the comments.  I always enjoy reading what you have to say!

The cancer situation is confusing.  Even my oncologist is not knowlegeable on it.  I am nearing the point where half develop worsening - nothing I can do about it.  There are experimental medications that I take, and others that can be used.   I try to live one day at a time.  Will retire, if I make it that far, in 15 months.  I try to be open and honest about the situation, it has a big impact on me, without being too in-your-face about it.

Hope you are doing well and your winter will be mild and spring arrives on time with flowers and gentle rains!

Thanks for the compliment!  I try to change the photo to reflect how things look at the moment.  That was during vacation - more relaxed.  Hope you are doing well and happy!

Hey Owensboro, ty for the comment on my Pen and Ink, Old Tobacco Barn, lots of those down here in the western part of Ky.  They raise lots of Burley and Darkfired here.  And no, I've never had in lessons in my drawings, just a hobby I picked up many years ago.  Don't draw as much as I used to though.  Thanks again.

Hi  k.h.   Thanks  for your words  of encouragement...I had no idea  that I would create  such a firestorm  with that  blog on circumcision...Did you see how many  members  blasted  my views?  I had no idea  how unpopular  it was....I never  gave  it much thought  before  so  it took me by surprise....I am a little   shell shocked  now, so not sure  when  I will get the confidence  to participate  again.....Take  care...FT31

Hi k.h.

I live in Boyd County. Catlettsburg is the "city" but we tell people Ashland as everyone knows where that is. Bonus: Forbes Magazine's 2014 winner of The Most Miserable City in the USA is....ASHLAND, KY!!

I hate it here, as does DH and DS. Can't go anywhere as immigration has denied our residency while taking all my money. Great. Back to square one and staying in Godville, USA, for another year.
