i have just found out that my brother (who was one of a bunch that shared this login) has died.. he and his wife were living in another country where they once pioneered.
i didn't see him that often.. such an empty feeling.....
My wife , Son and DIL living with us ,have still not acknowledged my birthday today @ 5:15 pm , I might have to drop them a subtle hint.by smiddy in
i know being a witness for 33 years and not celebrating b/days you do lose the habit , but i thought one of them would have remembered ?
oh well .. maybe i will just rub it in with them tomorrow .make them feel guilty , eh ?.
then again i might just start singing "76 trombones" at the dinner table tonight .

well, our sister congregation just had their co visit this past week.
on saturday afternoon, i was talking to a couple of ministerial servants in that congregation and they stated that an unmarried brother is not fulfilling to the max what jehovah wants of us.
they stated that the co went on a tirade that if you are unmarried you are being selfish and not following what jehovah wanted for mankind since he created eve as a compliment for the man.
- On the subject of flushing out the gays - I thought I remember some stories of men (possibly women as well?) who went to the elders about their sexuality and the elders said they should get married anyway(?). I can't imagine anyone going to the elders on this subject because word would be sure to get around! no?

so i went out today with my broken leg and got accosted by an old lady, with some magazines.. it was my first ever encounter with a jw in ten years, and i had said 'i know you are jw's, i'm not interested thank you.
" twice.....then she started talking about my broken leg and how wonderful we are made and how amazing the healing process is.... and that's when it all started...."i used to be a bethelite pioneer, now i'm an atheist doctor...".
she was with me a good 30 mins, her elder husband left very annoyed but she stayed, and she was dying to hear everything i spurted out, despite aggressively defending every point, from military engines to paedophilia.
- Great job! can I send my jw to you?

so at the assembly to day that nitwit lett gave a talk....i noticed right away he had a pinky ring.
i asked my wife what was the purpose of the pinky ring?
and then asked....would jesus wear a pinky?
- Perhaps the pinky ring is stumbling you? he should take it off just like the brothers who can't have beards because it might stumble somebody, or the ladies who can't dress normally because it will stumble the the men who cannot seem to concentrate on the (supposed) word of God being said at the meetings.

if you could use a good laugh please have a look at page 7 of the july 2015 awake.
my wife leaves the latest issues on my pillow when she gets back from her meetings.
i often scan through them looking for nonsense.
I suggest you leave her some nice apostate literature on her pillow and see how much she appreciates that.
Carla, from the home should be neutral camp (eww, for goodness sakes! especially the bedroom!)

if the jws follow proverbs 27:17 they should not be afraid of any tension or friction.. in order for iron to sharpen iron you need pressure, tension friction and a bit of heated debate..
They would have to stay on topic which is nearly impossible for a jw. They do not truly know or understand what they parrot at the doors. Get beyond the latest articles or ask to delve deeper and they get frustrated and change the subject. Or the ever famous, "I'll have to get back to you on that". They know a few proof texts and that is about it, no real understanding of anything and if it has been a 'new light' at any time forget it! they get all flustered and mad. Bible only? forget that too!

Thanks Randy! Hope you are doing ok and have success getting back to your country boy roots soon!
I was thinking of you the other day as I ran across some books I had ordered years ago when mine first joined up, I spent all my rainy day money on those books! (and I ordered a lot!) lol. I knew nothing to speak of about jw's and it did ease my mind and scare the hell out of me at the same time. So glad you & your site were there to help me through.
Wishing you well,

someone who is not familiar with jw none sense would think, are you.
serious, a fortune cookie.
is there a scripture that say you will be destroyed when.
My jw will not touch a fortune cookie, lol! however he will toss one to me and ask me to read it as if I find some enjoyment out of them and it is not he that wants to hear it. Weird huh? it's ok as long as he is not the one actually touching the evil cookie and silly 'fortune'. Which reminds me to buy some Lucky Charms soon to see where he is at spiritually. Yeah, that's my measurement sometimes. He never passes that one!
Too bad the kids are gone and he can't steal their Halloween , Easter and Christmas candy.
