Rub a dub dub dub — MidWeek Blues — three four men at chow

Question: What in the world can be blue here.

[large picture] [extra large then click on button on bottom right]

Answer: Only Jim's jacket.

Since you are here I will tell what is going on in this picture.

1. The Jim Bunch is eating again. We are at the Garden Cafe at Conroe, Texas. This is a delightful little eating place run by friends, Mr. and Mrs. _________ . The food is delicious with a menu to fit all tastes and hunger levels, the service is pleasant and prompt, the atmosphere is friendly and homey, and the place is spotlessly clean.

2. We are having our annual Sunday school class teacher and director meeting. Not every year do we meet. Sometimes we don't invite the director.

3. From left to right is Sam, a retired missionary to Korea; Wendell, a retired corporate executive/owner; Jim (me), twice retired NASA aerospace engineer and college business professor; and Dr. Jim, a retired cardiothoracic surgeon.

We team teach a coed Bible class whose members are mostly age 70 and over.

Sam, the retired missionary is a seminary graduate who knows his Bible and very well. He shares many of his mission experiences to add practicality to the lesson.

Dr. Jim's teaching style I call pseudo preaching. He lays every issue on the line and emphatically makes his points.

I (Jim) say that I do not teach, rather I lead the class through the lesson. My classes have more discussions and member participation that the others. I do not lecture but do keep the class on focus with our scheduled Bible lesson objectives.

Since we all have different teaching styles the class members with this variety generally keep a high degree of interest in our lesson matter.

I do believe that teaching is a my talent given by God. Most all of my life I have ended up teaching. That would be in my army and aerospace engineering careers as well as at San Jacinito College and various Bible class teaching assignments.

I am not saying that I am a good teacher but that this is where and what I end up doing.

Sunday night / Monday morning -- on Tuesday with an old blonde joke

Right away you can tell that I'm running behind this week. This post might even be my MidWeek Blues post. Guess not, there isn't a picture.

We are in the process of cleaning up after our floor replacement and putting the things stuff we really do want to keep back where it might look pretty and be useful.

AN OLD BLONDE JOKE: (I found this in a book to be thrown away donated to the Friends of the Library being used for a book marker--I suppose where I quit reading that book.) (Any way that's why it is old, it was in an old book that I was reading back in the 1980s')

The blonde was so happy about her new toilet facilities.

"It's even got a star on the door," she said excitedly. "Well, not exactly a star, but real close--its a new moon!"

I will return comments when or if I get time for that. I am pretty well caught up on comments for now. so it's okay for you to leave a comment. Especially if you like my blonde jokes, there was another.
