Have you had your car read lately? #009 -- A Moscow (Russia) police officer WAS driving this car -- and PETA outrage!
PETA News Flash:
Jim's Little Photo Place today: SkyWatch Friday
My prediction for last night's debate: Sarah Palin in seven rounds.
[I was wrong about this, it was a 'dead heat'. The seventh round? Palin went down for that one, I thought it was going to be a knockout. A hockey-mom came to her rescue with some smelly salts. I did come to respect Joe Biden, he is truly a gentleman. Subscribe to his newsletter here.]
Wednesday: Our friend had outpatient surgery yesterday. Mrs. Jim and I drove him in, waited, and brought him and his wife back home. He's doing fine now.
Picture of the day:

The driver of this car is obviously embarrassed and very likely a little frustrated. This may not have been the first time he has been stranded given the reputation of Russian cars. That is if the car is Russian made, I am not familiar with this model and cannot identify it.
I am sure he is a family man, a nice man, and doesn't swear. That is the norm for police officers.
He is probably feeling helpless when thinking of getting it to run again himself. I am sure help is on the way as this is a very busy street, even though this was taken on a Sunday morning.
Why did I post this picture and the gentleman? Because it was the only way I could work this one in, it just wasn't good enough quality to be included in my Russian tour blogs.
Cartoons for the day:

Word for the day: HEAD-MONEY
This Friday feature for JIM'S LITTLE BLOG helps me tackle the blogging problem of writer's blahs. So my advice is "when you don't feel like writing anything, post a picture." That's what is happening here.
This is not an original idea. Reading cars came from a sermon I heard one Sunday, brought by Dr. Roger Yancey, Director of Missions, Tryon Evergreen Baptist Association, of which our church, First Baptist Church of Conroe Texas, is associated. I believe my count of 118 was pretty close (Google that to check yourself).
I saw a few cowboy churches and quite a few Hispanic churches. All are within a 35 mile radius of our home.
The only non-truth in my post is that I DO NOT BELONG TO PETA. I do think they are doing a lot of good for animal welfare.
Really now: PETA
(People Eating Tasty Animals) has no respect for their own animal-kind (people) ... they elevate animals to near deity. Go figure.
go too far at times. Thanks for your comments a while back, just catching up and back to posting. I hope all is well
at your house. Take care, Regards, Merle.
I didn't watch the VP debate. Things like that make me nervous. Then the news people have to go back and tell you what they said anyway!
how many weirdoers are allowed the benefit of free enterprise over there?
There's a lack of breast milk for premature babies.
If some milk can be provied it should be for these poor once.
Somehow in the back of my mind I vaguely remember something about John Rockefeller drinking breast milk in his nineties.
Am I right or am I right?
