Four months/10 days not smoking...

and before that I had spent three months smoking only one or two cigarettes or pipes a day.  I used patches.  Still add one now and then if the urge comes back.  So no side effects.  No weird dreams.  mostly I miss it after an evening meal.   I...

LAST NIGHT'S DREAM, it went like this...

(Much shortened, but the essentials are kept in) I had made it to Heaven.  But I had a serious bone to pick with Jesus.   Jesus: "Old TomasSISI,  How is the training going?  Ready to take over a kingdom yet?"   Tom:  "I think I'm in the...

RE: the recent "cold front"

The cold front didn't get here Sunday. Instead it came yesterday and was not as cold as they had predicted.  The wind was very brisk and chilly but the temps were above freezing.   It's just cool fall weather, not winter here. Not yet.  My...

In Thoughts bylaws. no one under 14 may belong

Or so I thought.  Maybe they have done away with the age requirement all together.    Sometimes I forget I am speaking to people under 18 in my blogs. I even may have forgotten to indicate that some of my content is adult in nature.   I...

Cold coming - FIRST FREEZE of the Fall

Most of you, from the Rockies east will see winter coming in tomorrow.  But here on th actual east coast we won't feel it until Sunday.  From early morning on our murcury will fall until by night fall we will see the first freeze of the season.  ...

DON'T BE SURPRISED! TRUMP could be the real deal

Of course he might fall back on his favorite motto: truthful hyperbole,  a "true exaggeration." a contradiction in terms.  He might be satisfied to just repeat that he was going to be the best president ever and start to believe it himself and BE...

I AM A SINNER

I guess I must be.  The Bible says we all are.  Preachers say all of us are.  I'm just not very aware of it.  I have tried to keep the 10 commandments from childhood on.  I am careful and I think of how what I do or say may affect others.  I don't...

Old Habits Never Die

Up early then back to sleep for a while.  I woke up stretching and feeling so young and good.  "Oh God. I'm late.  They'll fire me this time."  I leaped from the bed and didn't see my clothes.  "Geeze, I'm getting so careless now."  I scrambled around...

A SHOCK WHEN I WOKE THIS MORNING

Glancing out the window it was evident,  SNOW.  Oh no, No!  Not this early?  It was not sticking to the ground yet, but it was all over the outside furniture tops and to fences and cartops and roof tops.  I haven't even dug out my extra heavey winter...

un-DEMOCRATS

Just as I suspected, Democrats do not believe in democracy.  They believe in one party rule, I guess they got that from Stalin.  If you disagree, 20 years to life in the Gulag if you even make it there.   If you believed in democracy you would...

Rapture hasn't happened... yet !

God seems to have given America one more chance to come to him before he closes the books on the rest of us.  I hope Trump will take heed and lead us in prayer,   Elites hoarding gold while trying to crash the economy, there is one prophecy that...

I just glanced at the date on the clock... ARMISTICE DAY !!!

It was the eleventh hour of the eleventh month of 1918 that THE GREAT WAR ENDED!  That was exactly the time the last shot was fired.. well, officically.  Europe was devastated with much of its manpower either wounded or dead.     It was supposed...

CNN: Trump's election is Tearing This Country Apart -

Where have you been, CNN.  This country has been torn apart and dysfunctional for several years.   Probably since the first Clinton election in 1992.   Were you not paying attention, CNN.  Didn't you realize it?     George W. Bush might have...

NOW What??

There was a lot of fear when I woke this morning.  I was afraid to even turn on the news.  A visceral fear gripped me.  I felt like I was in chains but I opened the program on my computer.   Trump had won!  He had actrually won!  I could hardly...

Voter FRAUD

As a resident of a state which once had a widespread and crooked machine political management, (Long gone, as far as I can tell)  I know something about buying votes.  People were so interested in politics here that the dead frequetly voted long after...
