I am going to Thanksgiving with Punky Brewster and Pat Benatar 

So, Emily is ready to go to Thanksgiving with Nana. I wish the photograph had better quality. It was taken with my camera phone. She is a cross between Punky Brewster and Pat Benatar.

Burgundy headband, purple top, khaki skirt, blue tights, black shoes, flowery handbag, and pink rollercase.

Children are still theological giants 

I have said it before. Children are still theological giants.

Emily and Julie were sitting at the dinner table. I was not listening very closely. Emily said "God". I asked "who"? She looked at me and said "God, You know, your father and the maker of everyone". I retreated.

Children are taught theological truths. And they don't pull punches.

Compassionate Killers and Breakers-of-Things 

Our unit was at Camp McCain recently. We noticed a dog wandering the camp. It looked hungry and most of us took turns slipping it some food and petting it. She was/is just a normal mutt. But one of the young men in unit decided he would take the dog home and care for it. The other young man in the vehicle agreed and allowed the dog to ride back to our home station in their vehicle.

Please remember this photograph when you hear broad slander against our troops. Yes, as General Colin Powell reminded us during the First Gulf War, the US military is the best in the world at killing people and breaking things. But the real mission is to kill some people and break some things. This is a very precise business. We are not asking young men and women to go to the Middle East and shoot at any thing that moves. We are asking them to show restraint under the most trying of circumstances and then with no notice whatsoever - kill people and break things.

The men and women in our military service are as compassionate as all other members of our society. They care about national security. They care about your safety. They care about stray dogs.

Our first donation 

Sid's Bullitt Fund received the first contribution today from an anonymous saint in Knoxville, TN. We now have a total of $5 in the fund.

It is better to give than receive. Remember that as you stroll over to your wallet or checkbook and size up your donation.

Thanks to you all.


A desperate man



Hobbit House 

The family wanted a special place for children. The Crayon Years and Fisher Landscaping designed/built the Hobbit House for a young family with children ages 8 & 3.

It includes: slide, crawl tunnel, zip-line, climbing wall, talk tubes, secret garden entrance, tunnel entrance, trap door, and bicycle path.
