saw some things recently - in person and in the paper.
1. eating at our local Sirloin Stockade. A 30 sumpin yr old female walked past - dressed in a T-shirt. The shirt read Witches of Gaia - - whatever that means. She looked pretty tough.
2. Walking into Walmart when we met a young couple. They were walking towards their car followed by their little boy. I'd guess he was about 4 or 5. His little legs were scurrying as fast as he could go. All the time, he had his left stuck inside his shirt and under his right arm - in his arm pit, if you will. All the way, he was pumping that right arm up and down to create "that" hilarious sound that all little boys crave to emit. I heard no sounds. But, he kept pumping away - and hurrying. The parents completely ignored him. Wanna bet his dad taught him the trick? Or some kid in day care?
3. back to the Sirloin Stockade. We sat at a corner table. In the center was a table for six - which held 4 rather large individuals. 3 guys and a gal. Actually, they were cowboys = so three steers and a heifer. It was Sunday. The boys wore Cowboy church shirts - she wore the same in the T-shirt style. Embroidered shirts. They were nice. Down the sleeve of one guy were the letters S F C M.
After a little bit of snooping, I was able to read the back of her T-shirt.
"Spurrin' for Christ Ministry"
I don't want to give the appearance of making fun of this. I think that is a great bit. The Cowboy Churches seem to fit a particular fine place in this world. Good for them.
But it made me stop and think of different possible church groups. I tried in vain to create other ones.
TFCM - Flute players: Trilling for Christ Ministry
SFCM - clarinets: squeaking for....
BFCM - trumpets: blasting for ...
SBFCM - Skate boarding for....
That's enough. You get the idea.
I would like to write a paragraph about Bitcoins. If you don't know anything about them, consider yourself ahead of the game. In my opinion, only a nitwit would invest in a bitcoin. Nitwit. They had the big theft a few weeks ago that is beyond my comprehension. I just don't understand. Nitbit-coins. The paper reported that our govt. IRS has decided that trading in nitbits is subject to income tax. GADZ
A "STONE" is a family word for a personal story or thought, not quite an essay or short story. We moved to central Texas to be near a daughter. We are down to only one wirehair dachshund - Sadie. (Goodbye in 2021 to Oscar the ball boy and Bruno the larger twin) & my wife -- penned by a retired Texas H.S. band director - just nonsense thoughts unrelated to each other or anything other than what's happening and comments.
