    Philip addressed a post I had made.
    I addressed him back.
    Therefore, the dog was nipping at •my• heels, and not visa-versa.

    Jesus words are never out of context The scriptures I quoted from Matt. ch. 10:34-37 stand on their own merit.
    And I see someone hijacked my personal s/n again. (not merely "trolling") So, I guess I'll have to go-back to creating various and sundry usernames to post under again. (shrug)
    Most understand that WHAT is said is of more vital concern than WHO said it.
    "Principles come before personalities"
    MOST, not all, believe and understand this. Those who worship idols have a hard time grasping it though.

    • Obviously

      some will spend more time observing and seeking out the posts of a personality rather than principles of anothers' posts, even so far as to response to said personality rather a response the principles' post. I believe it's called obsession.

      Have a nice day seeking out each others posts
      Good day all .. this world is obviously a place where I don't belong.

    I've been hijacked on this thread! I'll have to start making up new usernames, apparently.

    Nah, I'm not going anywhere.
    Just the usual umbrage being taken with anything I say, and the usual snide innuendos that go with it.
    You see my responses; the other posts have since been deleted.
    It's all good.
    Do tell Herkie I said hello, though.

    Jiminy, these posts are all out of order again!
    Miss dazzle©, have a safe trip.
    Bobcat, I feel your pain.
    I have not been posting as much; yesterday I was barely on...
    I have the Whirling Dervish starting Wenesday, so I need my rest.
    Had her today; I'm worn out!
    Perpetual motion does that to me, knowhatimean?

    Anyhow, goodnight, dear friends.

    P.S.: I miss your jokes.
    No matter what someone says, they are welcome, AND anticipated.

      @ T L B

      I promise, my jokes resume tomorrow. And I just spoke with Herkimer, and he said he will talk to you tomorrow. Get your rest, you're going to need it. Good nite to you sweet lady.

      @Thelma Lou, I almost powered down but wanted to reply to you. I've missed you too, don't be a stranger. Thank you for your good wishes. We girls don't know what packing lightly is. I'm trying though.

    @bobcat(in a hat) © I think it is 2pm Central. I will be up extra early though because my gatos are going to be freaking out. I will laugh especially if some big old female tries to grope me. I look forward to a special dazzle joke. Yes, trying to get alll of my hair and shower products in a 3oz bottle is ridiculous. I will bid you a very good night. I'm going to try and get some sleep.
