Magic Printing Machine -- Jim Bunch Eats
This is the magic machine that types large print. Did you ever know how it was done?
Get you an old typing machine and set it for font size 168. Then use the color tab and set letters to white and background to burnt red.
Use two fingers, one for each side of the keyboard and choose the letter or character you want to print.
Now, here is the tricky part. You can't just push that little button like you do on your lap top. Not the gentle stroking we have become accustomed to. No, you have to strike it rapidly and with some exertion. Briskly striking might be more understandable.
Here you see the finished product, my student learned well. She needs a reward. What say the Jim Bunch will eat?

Job Adi and her friends
This is Adi's most comfortable place.
It is her night time bed in our bedroom.
Beside the blog writing station.

Well, speak up -- Sunday things
Two blondes were nailing shingles onto the roof.
The second blonde noticed the first one was throwing almost half her nails away, down to the ground. She asked of the first why she was throwing so many away.
The first blonde replied that so many of them were turned wrong, away from the roof rather than towards it.
"Silly," retorted the second blonde, "why aren't you saving them for the other side?"
Second, this church sign:
These were the words of Abraham's servant as he reached the region of Paddan Aram, in what is now southern Turkey near the Syrian border. The people living there presently are Kurds and Arameans.
The servant was on a mission, to find a wife for Abraham and Sarah's son, Isaac, who remained back in Israel. After he had finished his travel safely and then discovered the beautiful Rebekah, who was Isaac's distant cousin and future bride for Isaac, the servant gave God the thanks and praise for all this.
"(26) Then the man bowed down, worshiped the LORD, (27) and said, "Praise the LORD, the God of my master Abraham, who has not withheld His kindness and faithfulness from my master. As for me, the LORD has led me on the journey to the house of my master's relatives."" [from Genesis 24:26-27, Holman Christian Standard Bible]

Adi is doing pretty good now. Her growth was a follicular cyst neoplasm (cancer) benign. That means it was not the bad kind of cancer, but it would continue to grow if not removed. Dr. Hablinski called yesterday to tell me this and to say the biopsy showed it had been removed in its entirety.

I take her halo collar off now when I am around, like for short walks and eating and outside goings. Otherwise I can't trust her not to mess with her stitches. They will probably be removed Thursday.
1. The Lord has led me to take very good care of Adi. He has rewarded me with such a nice companion for a pet. I already had a very good wife, the Lord led Mrs. Jim and I together, long before Adi came along.
2. How to be politically correct [with women??]:
She is not a BLEACHED BLONDE
She is PEROXIDE DEPENDENT
