October 13, 2019 - Msg 113065: Good Sabbath all.

Yes sir MDC, You best keep Cecile happy. Happy Wife = Happy life. Can I get an AMEN brothers? :) (and any Sisters who would like to) I know how much you have enjoyed that, but I know there are other opportunities that will arise. Good on you for your desires to serve.

GF, Sounds like you all had a grand time. You went to the fights and a hockey game broke out? lol It's fun to have a boys night out like that every now and again.

Romeena, so glad they found the right nerves on the first go around. I hope the actual ablation goes/went well. Now you can focus more on little L.B. and learning her some proper manners. :)

Boo, Yep, Maddie turned 8 on Friday and was baptized yesterday. Wow, she looked so beautiful in her baptismal dress. And she was so very excited. When Matt and Stacey moved last year, they now attend a different Ward and she only has one calling. I tell ya, after 7 kids, she still looks like she is a teenager herself. And she is the same weight that she was when a teenager. I think it's because with 7 kids she is always on the move. I'm glad you are feeling a bit better. I hope the rest of your family doesn't get it.

Oh Romeena, I was watching an All Creatures episode last night. James had been called out to a farm because a cow that had just given birth, refused to get up. When James got there, there were a group of neighboring farmers there, and they all had there own quack remedies to "shift er" I was rolling in laughter at some of them. "Try pouring cold water down her lug ole" ( I think that meant ear) was one of them. James looked at him like what? And the feller repeated it with this look of disgust, and asked "Aven't you ever heard of that one either"? Bring in a strange dog was another. And shout in her lug ole was yet another. James was just astonished how other farmers are experts concerning their neighbors stock. lol The Vet was usually called in as a last resort, after all the other home remedies had been exhausted, and usually by that time the poor beast was beyond any help and would die, further proof that any Vet was useless. That had to be a difficult time to be a Vet I am sure.

I hope Frankie got her power back on. I read they had got most of it turned back on yesterday. What a pain that would be.

Well I hope everyone has a great Sabbath. Prayers for all.


October 13, 2019 - Msg 113066: HI GANG! I made it back safe and sound, no lockdown or anything like that this time, but heard another strong commitment to Christ! I told our captive audience that this was it for me, and got some good hugs and one guy said "Your free at last!" smiling, and I said
you too someday bro! Very cool! :)
GF and ASA, yes, I adhere to that very UNpolitically correct adage of happy wife, happy life! We guys have to know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em.
ASA--very funny about the hockey game breaking out! One quick story. We used to have a AAA hockey team in Phx, The Roadrunners, (before our NHL Coyotes) and I took a girl there on a first date when I was a freshman in college. To impress her, I got the "7 dollar seats" right in front of the glass. About midway thru the first period,
a player body checked another player right into the glass... right in front of us!
His bloodied nose slid down the glass, leaving a long streak of blood!
Needless to say (why do we even SAY that preface? ha) she wanted to leave and there was no second date!
RO--Great news about the injections. Hope it works!


October 13, 2019 - Msg 113067: Handsome, handsome, handsome. Handsome is as handsome does.

October 14, 2019 - Msg 113068: Well Asa, with 7 little ones, I don't know how Stacey hardly has time to eat! :) I cant even imagine how challenging it must be to parent a large family.

Ro, sure hope all continues to go well with the pain.

MDC, are you finishing up will all prison ministry?


October 15, 2019 - Msg 113069: Yes BOO. It was time. As mentioned above, my wife was very worried after the lockdown incident, so the ol' marriage compromise thing kicked in and I said OK.
Tonite's tags ep was the one with ol' Blue. Always have liked that one.
Speaking of tags dogs, where has our SPOTTY been.
Spot, are you out there somewhere??

October 15, 2019 - Msg 113070: 95 degrees here today and more of the same tomorrow. Yuck.


October 15, 2019 - Msg 113071: Gomer, Gomer...Gome...

October 15, 2019 - Msg 113072: Andy! Andy! They got Gomer! Hey Big Maude, you from east Tennessee? Saw you went to a concert in Knoxville.

October 16, 2019 - Msg 113073: Tonite's ME-TV ep was the one of Opie finding 50 dollars.
I have always liked that one too, especially when Opie says"That's a lot of money for ANY size fella!" ha
Hey to message 113072. You must be a tags fan to have found your way hereabouts. Welcome.
Anyone see the race at talladega? A bit of some airborne action:
Our weather still flirting with us here. 82 one day then a 98, etc.
I hope everyone is OK. Check in when ya can.


Let me know if the porch needs a sweep                                   Archives
This version of The Taylor's Front Porch has been created to pay our respect to the original porch found on Thanks to Frank for all the work he did for Mayberry on the web. We've tried to make this just like Frank's Porch. This is also a tribute to Ollie's "Trivialities" site which was another homage to Frank's porch but is no longer with us.
