I received this e-mail from Uncle Bob..I like this one and wanted to share...
No matter what our kids and the new generation think about us, WE ARE AWESOME !!! OUR LIFE IS LIVING PROOF !!! To Those of Us Born 1925 - 1970 : At the end of this email is a quote of the month by Jay Leno. If you don't read anything else, please read what he said. Very well stated, Mr. Leno. ~~~~~~~~~ TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE 1930s, '40s, '50s, '60s and '70s!! First, we survived being born to mothers who may have smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes. Then, after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints. We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets, and, when we rode our bikes, we had baseball caps, not helmets, on our heads. As infants and children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes. Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat. We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle. We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle, and no one actually died from this. We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter, and bacon. We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar. And we weren't overweight. WHY? Because we were always outside playing...that's why! We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on. No one was able to reach us all day. --And, we were OKAY. We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride them down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes.. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem. We did not have Play Stations, Nintendos and X-boxes. There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVDs, no surround-sound or CDs, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms. WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them! We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth, and there were no lawsuits from those accidents. We would get spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping-pong paddles, or just a bare hand, and no one would call child services to report abuse. We ate worms, and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever. We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls, and -although we were told it would happen- we did not put out very many eyes. We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them. Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!! The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law! These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers, and inventors ever. The past 50 to 85 years have seen an explosion of innovation and new ideas.. We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all. If YOU are one of those born between 1925-1970, CONGRATULATIONS! You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good. While you are at it, forward it to your kids, so they will know how brave and lucky their parents were. Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it ? ~~~~~~~ The quote of the month by Jay Leno: "With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?"
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Sunday was homecoming at Grace FWB in Rocky Mount....that is the church Sammy is was a great day.........the Men of Faith Quartet sang from 10:00 till 11:00......they did a wonderful job.......they also sang a couple more songs during the worship service......the last song they sang was "Working on a Building'.......then Sammy preached about Working on a Building...he did a great job.......Pearl is 6 now and she ask the Lord to save her soul about a year ago.....then she started talking to Lori about being saved........Lori told her Mom one night she wanted the Lord to live in her heart....she wanted to live for the Lord and go to heaven one the way Lori is five....they were both baptized Sunday........the entire day was a great big Blessing. As most of you know Homecoming is not over until lunch is served.......that was goooood too.
I will however have to apologize to Jason, Cheryl and the girls it was Homecoming at their church too.......but with the girls being baptized we had to be there.
We also stopped by to see my sister and her husband on our way was great to visit with them....they have really worked in their yard the past couple looks great...their house is beautiful too.

It was late when we got home Sunday and then yesterday we worked another 12 hour this is the first chance I have had to post.


2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

Jason came by today and I finally gave him his birthday apron.....he really seemed to like it.......his birthday was Sept 30th, but with work, school, church and family he has been busy. My sister has been wanting an apron, her wedding anniversary is next month they are getting aprons too.

Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands.

Ada ask me to make this bag.......she gave me the fabric and strap I made it last night....took it to work today.......she is going to put it in a new store in NB.......I hope the lady that owns the store likes it. I think the color of the fabric and the pumpkin on it makes it look like fall.
MARK 9;23
Jesus said unto him. If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Do you remember all those patterns that I showed you a while back....the ones given to me that were sitting beside the dumster.......well...I finally made a dress....I think it turned out pretty good......I made a change or two........mostly instead of putting the facing at the neck...I made the over blouse...or have ever you want to call it.....I like and need to hide under that kind of thing.

I also made these little coin purses...the smaller ones you can use as a key chain and put in your drivers license, bank card or credit card, the larger one can also be used the same way...but it is large enough to carry your cell phone also. The red and white striped fabric is left over from aprons I have made....the rest Ada gave is from a samples book...of fabric for out door pillows and furniture...I love to use up fabric that would otherwise be in the trash.
The Lord is my rock, and fortress, and my delieverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
