Are you sure you dont live in my county here in SC? Very much of the same thing here.

Rev. Paul said...

I'm sorry to hear that, Senior. But no, Dutch Harbor is 650 miles southwest of here, so well over 4,000 miles from you. :)

Padre, I have come to the conclusion that smart folks make mistakes, but idiots, its a way of life. Sad to say we now they and guess if drinking was involved, and what race was the shooter.

This fall we had some pranks and mischief going on, and folks had their dander all worked up, even had some Christmas decorations missing. My take is folks you have others that are willing to kill you without a second thought, get over it. I love small town America...I really do.

Rob, I think you're spot on. And yes, picking one's battles is apparently an acquired skill; took me awhile to learn that lesson as a young man.
