J· Honest! I am a church going guy, raised in a faith believing church. We believe in healing. If we got sick, it was prayer and/or kerosene. Daddy believed the Bible, word for word. Our whole family was raised and I don’t know of one that was taken to a Doctor until I came along (I am the sweet baby). Then things just fell apart. It seemed it was hard for the Lord to deal with me. Oh the rusty nails were okay, the headaches, toothaches, the bumps, the bruises, the cuts and we didn’t get Polio, etc. BUT evidently it was hard for the Lord to deal with a boy who sticks his hand into a vat of boiling tar. I think Jesus understands ignorance but has a problem with stupidity. After a day or so, it was Doctor time on that one, my faith wasn’t much good. Oh yeah about my teeth! It is true this is my Blog and I would not lie. I found him on the Campground flier there he was plain as day: JESUS PEREZ, DENTIST. You have to trust a man named Jesus. He even made me a pretty tooth, did it without an appointment. There was one difference with him and the REAL Jesus. This guy I had to pay! He did not care how much faith I had, he had a family to feed. ( I did fill out four pages front & back before, even had to pay in advance, do I look like a crook? That Jesus did not trust me. It is sorta imbarrassing when they ask your Physican & Dentist and I put NONE.)
Okay, my face is red!
Okay how do I straighten this thing out? Do I have to send the Birthday gifts back? Shoot! No it was not my birthday, I lied. When I was describing my dad’s life and mine I was counting actual days of life. We were nearly born on the same day. He on the 14th of January and I on the 17th. Differing years mind you. Hahah! Dad was born in 1903 I was a little later, 1939. (See if Dad had not remembered to die he would be 105 years old.)So in actual days I have lived a longer life than he. He never reached 70, I hope to this coming year.
So I guess that is clear as mud, but thanks so very much for the Birthday wishes and gifts. You guys are great. I am going to save them. Yes Shirl, I know it will embarrass you but I am keeping the presents toooo!
Thanks for coming by the Log.
