The Saint who went to Hell — Six Word Saturday — Oxymoron?

Now WhoDat won the super bowl?

Speaking of saints in Hell, did you hear about the New Orleans Saint fan who went to Hell.

Satan wanted to make it especially hard on him so he turned up the heat. The hottest temperatures did not bother him.

So then he put Saint fan in his personal walk-in freezer.

Later he checked and to find that didn't faze the fan who was enjoying the freezing temperature. He asked why that wasn't bothering him.

The fan said everyone always knew that it would be a cold day in Hell when the Saints would win the Super Bowl.

I hope you get the drift here. Mrs. Jim can tell this one better than I can. I may have left out a couple of letters and have too many words. But still you can get the drift.

It is supposed to be funny.

Adi and I were walking last week. We saw these two little ducks drifting along in the lake beside us. After they saw us they started swimming away.

Or do less. All she requires is a BLUE PICTURE, you don't have to write.

Ides of February — Ruby (Red) Tuesday — Red excitment in fifteen days

[large picture] [extra large]

Today (February 15, post dated the 16th) I'm running a sampling of the red in my life since February 1. This is my great niece, Mandi holding our youngest grandchild, KP (link), who is seven months old this Tuesday. My sister, Lois from Iowa, is visiting us and this is her daughter. For the particular, one of the kitchen staff in the background has a red hat.

I never blogged about Mandi and Chris's wedding because we didn't go. They opted to be married in Hawaii and that holiday didn't fit our summer schedule that year. We did go to Mandi's mom's wedding way back when, in Iowa.

When the newly weds Mandi and Chris returned from Hawaii they had a very nice reception for family and friends.

Not a real big deal, but the 2010 edition of my favorite phone book, pictured on the right, is out.

Nice features are the numbers for the local SS office and for our post office. Most have only 1-800 ones for these. There are coupons in the back, mostly for restaurant. We don't use many of those.

"I'll have a small chocolate Frosty and a crispy chicken sandwich without mayonnaise, please."

The Frosty came in the medium size and the sandwich had more mayo than the law allowed. It did make my senior discount, ten percent, come to four cents more.

Note that I put barbecue sauce on the normally dry sandwich. Much better and less calories than the mayo.

We attended the Conroe Symphony performance. It really wasn't dedicated to Valentine's Day which I had supposed. The theme was movie and stage production songs. From the movie series, Pirates of the Caribbean (link), they played the theme by Klause Dadelt.

The director was surprised to see the percussion section wearing their red pirate head dress. Two them are pictured here, one had sneaked in his parrot.

Lois and husband, Jim W, stayed at our house a week ago Sunday and Monday nights.

Mrs. Jim cooked a really nice breakfast on Monday morning. For Tuesday we all went up to the club for a breakfast brunch buffet.

It runs in the family, neither Lois nor I hardly ever miss a meal. Left to right, Mrs. Jim (red sweater), Lois, Jim W, and me (Jim H).

The last picture's story is in the Black and White, Texas State Highway Patrol, act of stopping this truck on the Interstate (I-45) for a violation. The red is in the red and blue flashing emergency light.

Most likely it was stopped for driving in the left hand lane. In Texas the left hand lane is for driving, the right is for passing. If traffic is real heavy those going about 60 mph drive in the left lane, the right is for 80 mph and higher.
(February 10)

So be careful when you come to Texas.

Dr. John Linna of Dr. John's Fortress (blog) died February 15, 2010

Dr. John had become one of my favorite blog writers. Dr. John was a retired pastor living in Neenah, Wisconsin. Read more about it here, "Good-bye, Pastor Dr. John"
And visit Dr. John's last writing on February 9, 2010 here, Dr. John's Fortress blog
The Neenah Post-Crescent: Short Obituary: Linna, John J.
John J. Linna, age 70, of Neenah, passed away Monday, February 15, 2010.
The funeral service will be held on Thursday, February 18, 2010, at 11 a.m. at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Neenah, with the Rev. Stephen Dietzler officiating. Visitation will be held from 9 a.m. until the hour of service at church.

Dr. John was a wonderful man and preacher in every way that I could see. He wasn’t hesitant to tell of this faith in the Lord. All of us bloggers were anxiously waiting for the latest word of God from Dr. John and from his blog story Pigeon Falls, friend, Pastor Joan.

Now the Lord has said to Dr. John, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” And He took him home to the place (in Heaven) that He had prepared for him.

I will be praying for his wife (Betty), his family, and for all those who he has reached in his ministry.

With This Ring

I love you, he whispered softly.
Oh you silly thing you, said she.

Of course I do, I wear your ring
and sing your song, a song of life.
Of life and love, babies, children,
my children you're the mother of.

Yes, I remember well that day,
committing you my love to stay.
My token, flowered band of gold.
You gave me your all, heart and soul.
