November is Aviation History Month. I love flying! I wanted to join the Air Force when I graduated from High School. Unfortunately, they weren’t allowing women to fly then. Nope; I did not join. When they did start letting women fly, I was a new mommy.

Of course, I did some research on aviation history, to share with you all. I found some fun facts on Aviation, listed in an article written by Steffan Kasula, in 2018. Boy, was I ever shocked when I found this little fact! Are you all ready for this? Okay, here goes. In 2015, there were 61,000 people airborne over the U.S. at any given hour. My goodness, I almost had a heart attack when I read that! I can’t believe all those pregnant women were flying around up there that close to delivery time!

Saturday Silly – November 7, 2020

Boy howdy! What a week it’s been! Sadie and I were reminiscing about our childhoods and some of our favorite relatives recently. We both agreed that our grandmothers were our favorite. We got to talking about some of their special holiday dishes. I told her one of my favorite dishes my granny made was Pickled Beets. I said, “I don’t like beets any other way, but I sure did love those!” Sadie said, “My grandma used to make a dish on the holidays called Drunken Sweet Potatoes.” “Matter of fact,” she said, “that’s how I ended up marrying Burt.” I said, “Really, Sadie? Your granny’s dish got you two together?” “Sure did,” she replied. I said, “They must have been some special sweet potatoes, Sadie.” “Yeah, “she said, “Granny made me wait until I was eighteen years old to eat them, because of their power.” “Power, what power,” I asked. Sadie said, “Well, Granny said the sweet potatoes helped her with her estrogen level-because she was menopausal, you know. “‘And the Jack Daniels”‘, Granny said, “‘helps your Grandpa look awesome!” -NO, family, I’m sticking with my Macaroni Salad…and there will be no Jack Daniels added to it!

My it’s been a busy week! People chasing me around all over town, hitting me with those little zappers, trying to destroy that right breast…trying to keep up with my Bible studies, my posts, and start a brand new year of life…October 14th was my birthday. October 14th this year, was also National Fossil Day… Here’s my card, of course. LOL I don’t know why you people cannot understand that I am merely 39 again again! Hah! Actually, I will, and proudly, tell you that I am 61 years young this year…and getting younger every minute.

Today is Black Poetry Day…One of my favorite black poets is Langston Hughes. It’s also Home Movie Day. Comedy is definitely my favorite, when it comes to movies. One of the funniest movies I’ve ever watched is Gone Fishin’ starring Joe Pesci and Danny Glover. If you haven’t seen it, you’re in for such a wonderful treat. Don’t pass it up!

I love visiting with my friend Sadie Snide. We were discussing my birthday…I told her I’m really looking forward to turning 39 again again. LOL Her birthday was in August. She said her family threw her a big party, and it was actually a family reunion, so many of them came to help her celebrate. I said, “Oh, Sadie, it must have been wonderful to see all those relatives again.” She said, “Yeah, it was alright. I could have done without some of those relatives; especially that one sister of mine.” I said, “Really? Don’t you get along with her, Sadie?” “Well, let me put it this way,” she replied. “NO!” I said, “Well, did you at least get an update on her life? I mean, is she healthy and doing okay? I know you want to know that, don’t you?” Sadie said, “She’s in great health, had a facelift and a boob job, and won a bunch of loot in the lottery recently.” I said, “Well, that’s great! Aren’t you happy for her?” Sadie replied, “Yeah, now she’s got enough money to pay someone to blow smoke up her behind; so she doesn’t have to delude herself anymore!” Ooh, Sadie, as soon as I stop laughing, I’m going to pray for you and sister. LOL

“Boy, this COVID thing is really starting to get on my nerves,” said my friend. “The masks, especially; I’m just fed up with it all,”she continued. “Cheer up,” I replied, “it’s not forever, and it’s not really that bad, is it?” She rolled her eyes and said, “Oh, yeah? You know my husband’s on a bowling league, right? The other night, the league got together for pizza and pics . My husband had complained to me, earlier in the day, about feeling a little neglected by me. Well, he and I both needed to use the restroom. As he came out of the men’s room, I patted his behind lightly and said, “Ooh, you little hottie, I can’t wait to get you home tonight.” Imagine my surprise when Judge Broderson lowered his mask and said, “My dear, that’s a lovely proposition; but I don’t think you’re hubby would like that very much.”

I was on the bus recently, and passed a little place that reminded me of my drinking days. It also reminded me of an old friend. She had a real funny sense of humor…and it never failed; she always got me with it! Always!

One night, she and I were out and about, in a little town not far from Billings. We were looking for a place to have a drink and maybe shoot some pool. As we pulled up to a local bar there, my friend read the sign in their big front window, and said to me, “Crafty Beer Liquor? Wow! Wouldn’t it be cheaper if they just used bar mops? I mean, they’re a dollar a dozen. They have to pay that guy or girl $7.50 an hour to lick that beer up!”

Saturday Silly-September 19, 2020

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, bids us to look for the joy in life. It is when we take joy in the Lord and His awesome love, that we become more and more able to find the many joys to be found in life.

That being said, I’ve been viciously attacked by some vile and cowardly people, who have all but destroyed my right breast with some lipolizer apps and stun gun type apparatuses. It is, at present, approximately two inches shorter than my left breast. That’s alright, because God doesn’t miss a thing, and there’s is such a thing as phyto-estrogen.

I was reminded of a friend who talked to me about having breast augmentation done. She said, “They use fat now, you know; and there are discount cosmetic surgical clinics too.” I said, “Oh boy, discount clinics, huh? I can just see you with great big breasts, and a little curly piggy tail.” ( I was joking, of course. They use your own body fat.) She looked at me and burst out laughing. “Oh, my God,” she said, “breast augmentation doesn’t affect your hair!” I got the joy, joy, joy….LOL I love you , Jesus!!!!!

Saturday Silly-September 12, 2020

First, I want to say, I am so thankful to all you wonderful folks who give of your resources and time, and come to make sure the homeless people don’t go hungry.

I was sitting, doing my Bible study recently, when a car pulled up, and a lady handed me a sack lunch. I thanked her and she drove off. As I was looking through sack, I came upon a can of Vienna Sausages. These are not one of my favorites. “Oh, man,” I thought, “yuk.” Then I looked up to Heaven and said, “Okay, Lord, I”m offering up my suffering for my new house.” “That’s a pretty steep bargain,” I heard in my spirit. So I answered, “Don’t look at me; you’re the Jew. You taught me how to bargain.” Then I laughed. I thanked the Lord for my lunch and for the generous lady, and ate. Fortunately I had some bread left to wrap the sausages in.

I finished my Bible study after lunch, and decided to go to the store. As I came around the corner of the block, this truck came down the street, with a dog house in the back. Again, in my spirit, I heard laughter, and then, “You’re not the only who’s funny.” LOL…and I’m still laughing. Oh, how I love Jesus!

*That last part I worked into the story. It came to me yesterday while I was on the bus. But, Jesus really does do stuff like that.

There’s Your Sabbath Rest

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that those everlasting arms are always open to us. They are our refuge. (Deuteronomy 33:27) (2 Samuel 22:33) (Proverbs 18:10)

When I think of the arms of Jesus, I think of the Sabbath rest spoken of in Hebrews 4. I want to enter in as often as I can. Jesus, the Lord of the Sabbath, made exactly that possible. That’s why in Hebrews 4:16, Paul says: “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

We can approach boldly when we remember Jesus’ words: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28)

Incidentally, I did a study on the Sabbath principle not too long ago. The Christian church deems Sunday to be the first day of the week, and the Lord’s Day, according to first fruits principle. Jesus is the Alpha. The work week usually runs from Monday through Saturday; which makes Sunday the seventh day, or Sabbath day. Jesus is also the Omega. But, here’s something awesome. Jesus made the Sabbath rest personal to each one of us. He knew this was necessary. Can you imagine if all the hospitals, police stations, fire stations, etc., were closed on the Sabbath Day? It’s not about a day, folks. It’s about a Savior who wants to have personal and intimate time with you, to refresh, restore, recharge you. It’s about a Savior who wants to reveal Himself, more and more, to you personally.

**I am not trying to get anyone to change the way of their faith, or argue about calendars, principles, of creeds.

Saturday Silly – September 5, 2020

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that progress is the law of the Kingdom of Heaven. We are bid to rise ever higher and to strive to be ever better. Be better today than yesterday -this mindset actually freed me from fear of other’s opinions, from the competitive spirit, and from being a “cookie cutter” copy of everybody else. Only compete with yourself; then you’ll always be better. Don’t measure yourself up against anyone; measure yourself up against yesterday’s you. And don’t be so hard on yourself.

I was discussing this with a friend of mine. I said to her, “The message made me think of Lot and his family. He was the guy living in Sodom and Gomorrah. Try as I might, I just can’t figure out what happened with those two girls. I mean, talk about going two steps forward and three steps back! God sends two angels to save them from the disaster, rains down fire and brimstone and totally demolishes, not one, but two towns, and what do these two do on the mountain? It never occurred to either one of them to ask God to send them husbands. They could have had a Johnny Depp or Brad Pitt! God can do that!!!” My friend said, “Yeah, and don’t forget about their mother. She was the pillar of the community; worth her weight in salt.” Hmm…I’m sorry, I had to laugh! She’s a Bible study leader. My friend, not Lot’s wife.
