My Alabama Family

In November 1935 Pete Hester was born. In April 1936 Cecil Bonner was born. He lived up on top of the hill and I lived just down under the hill. Around the road it was probably 1/4 miles between our houses, but up the path between our houses was probably a lot closer. Anyway, our houses were very close, our Dad’s were very close and he and I became two peas in a pod. We worked in Uncle Dee’s cotton and corn fields together and worked for Uncle Dee at his sawmill. And he would pay us, always a little something, always as an award to make us realize the value of working and getting paid for it. Because of our being so close, I reckon I became close to Cecil’s family, cause they just took me in and loved me and I felt it was almost as much as they loved Cecil. For many years, if you saw one of us, you saw the other. So, we worked together and we played together and we ate together. My mom worked. Aunt Vera, Cecil’s mom did not work, well, away from home anyway. She was a wonderful cook and of course she would always invite me to eat with them. Only thing, when Aunt Vera fixed a meal everyone at the table was expected to eat some of everything she fixed. She fixed okra, you ate it…she fixed asparagus, you ate it, she fixed tomatoes, you ate them. Now I was a meat and potatoes man, except Aunt Vera did not let me get away with that . I had to take some of everything and I had to eat everything I took. You did not leave the table until everything was gone and there was no way to cheat. Aunt Vera was so pretty and so precious that I really did wanted to please her and do everything she said, but a meat and potatoes man having to eat all those veggies, like English Peas….and lettuce and radishes and carrots, rabbit food? Yep, she made you eat it all.
On to my point, finally, today I eat it all, thanks to Aunt Vera and I generally clean up my plate. I’m still a meat and potatoes guy but I eat all that other stuff, including the rabbit food. Cecil, Uncle Dee and Aunt Vera are as much a part of me as Mom and Dad and Gent and Sam. I loved them….More importantly, they loved me….

What Will The Dates Be Called???? I Was….

Did you ever wonder what will the dates be after AD…..if there are records kept of days after the return of our Lord…What did we have, around 5000 years of BC? And now, 2021 years of AD so far…and we are probably a few years away from the Rapture…will we start recording the years as AR or some other initial stating how long we are in heaven? I think not…It’s forever and who will want to count forever?. And the one’s that are already there would already be counting I reckon. When God said, I Was and then said, I Am, I guess the counting really started at I Was, so the years over there are probably recorded in the I Was years, I reckon they number in the billions by now. No, I really don’t think we will be worried about how long we have been there…we will just enjoy our time together…for years and years and years and years….well, you get the idea about us in the I Was time and dates…

UFO’s….The Government Seems To Be Admitting They Are Real

Have you noticed on the programs that discuss UFO and such are getting favorable reports from the government nowadays. One of the reports stated that is because they are no longer unidentified. They now know who they are or so the reporter said. Maybe, or maybe they read the bible and said you know, “I think Revelation talks about these guys.” I for one do not know for sure,  but I also think they are real….I also think there are some good’un and some bad’un….and them good’un belong to God and them bad’un belong to Satan….More later..

Vaccine Availability….Covid Number Decline

With more of the vaccine available the Covid 19 number are beginning to come down. Before long, I think we will return to a form of normalcy around the country and travel and socializing will increase once again. Churches will be open for Easter this year, I hope, and families will once again celebrate with one another. And when it happens….wow, how nice….I know I, for one, am really looking forward to it.
