Tweet I am what many people refer to as a purist. Many do not understand or know what a purist is so let me explain. No, a purist is not a Puritan, although I have nothing against Puritans and lean heavily in their direction. After all, I think it is better to be radical in more »

Tweet   Everybody knows certain situations call for some serious thinking. My problem, and I think I share with other people still breathing, I do things without thinking them through. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is always thinking up something new. Often she will complain to me that she has a headache. It is no more »

Tweet One thing about me that has not changed all these years is that I refuse to waste my time on anything not important. There is too much to do in this world to waste time on unimportant things. This, however, sometimes gets me in trouble with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Do not more »

Tweet   For the last several hours, I have been slouching in my easy chair basking in the soothing aura of the season. I have not moved in several hours, and it probably will be several more hours before I even think of moving. Just a few days ago, we were in the middle of more »

Free is as Free Gives and I Don’t Like Free, Usually

Tweet I am not the kind of person looking for a handout or anything free. When somebody offers me something free, I know there is a catch somewhere, and as long as I still have a slice of sanity in my noodle soup, nobody is going to catch me.  Before I had made this a more »

Tweet “Early to bed and early to rise,” hasn’t really worked for me … My father was not what you would call a literate person. Apart from the Bible, he did not read much of anything else on a regular basis. I can remember as a young person him quoting a great American patriot,BenjaminFranklin. The more »

Tweet I just realized that summer is now over. Where in the world did it go? In fact, that is a very good question. Where does the summer go when it leaves? Is there some place that summer, winter, spring and fall go to chill out? When they get there, what in the world are more »
