Default Thinking about our machines.

If they hadn't been as good as they were. Way out here one of us could have died. On two occasions.
It's hard not to get attached. So many memory's.

Child choking on a peanut. Heimlich manoeuvre didnt work. 100 mph with police escort did, to the ER. Only a machine could go 100 mph.

Ahhh......take blessings and miracles where you get them

Anyone who wants to fundamentally change the USA is not a Patriot.
Many things in life are negotiable but not Honor or Integrity.
Celebrating the 2nd Independence Day of the USA as of Noon on Jan.20 2017, We have thrown off the yoke of bondage of the Dem/Socialists and taken back our Constitutional Republic.

I remember that. It was so fast the police were everywhere. That was our Camaro baby. Aleasha is alive today. Praise Jesus for fast cars.

as late as my own mother's time, a lot of kids didn't live long
enough to grow up. she's told of kids that cut their foot in the
cotton fields with a hoe and died of blood poisoning. or got
trampled by livestock, or blinded and died making lye soap.
or a can full of kerosene exploded and killed them, or lots
of similar dangerous things. lots of diseases that people don't
have to worry over these days wiped out thousands of kids.
one of her cousins was raised with her because a flu took her
parents.
in her day you were ancient if you made it to 60.
thank god for some of the progress we've made

The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.

Honor the Texas flag;I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas,
one state under God, one and indivisible.

Thank Jesus that we will be reunited with those who have gone before, for eternity.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

I am but a mote in God's eye. Insignificant. Nothing indelible or for the "greater good" (the greater good) of mankind was written by my passing through this life. Still, it is an incredible journey. Paradise really, in spite of the bad. The love of a good woman, a faithful dog, a warm fire on a damp and chilly morning, hot coffee, the sun's rising for another day, and good health. I am alive to see it in all of its splendor. Thank God almighty. The relevance of the past is in perspective and blown away by the present as well as the anticipation of what is to come.

Jesus likes us to show some elegance and humility in respect for him and his Father.

I'm 70 yo. My mother had a brother who died when he was 4 from diphtheria. A terrible disease that causes you to suffocate to death. Now they have a vaccine for that that folks think their kids shouldn't have to take.
