Circuit Overseers

    My sister and her husband are in the circuit work - it is their career and they treat it as such. i feel for the wives who are there for the support of their husband and have to be so careful not to offend, get to close to anyone, stay aloof or otherwise be a reproach or a cause for stumbling. The pressure is enormous.

    Think about it - for a sincere, believing dub there is no excuse for not being in the full time work in some way. In the case of my sis, they are the new crop that will not have kids been married going on 20 years and know no other way of life. They take a vow of poverty (for tax reasons) and she was obsessed with not having too many expenses for the cong to cover - ie - repairing nylons. Even I told her that was ridiculous.

    They are very protective about their own time and she dresses more in style than most people I know. She is a very "hard" person - ie guarded and i can't imagine warming up to her in a week long cong visit.

    Yep: here they are:

    Schuler: old timer, lots of GREAT stories and illustration.
    Vig: jolly, easy going type.
    Brandt: to quote cheney, a major asshole.
    Russ Anderson: great, except he personally guaranteed the end would be before 75. Still, he did apologize for it.
    Sylvan Melan: the greatest; a genuine nice guy.
    Kuss: minty, but overall a good guy. Very young.
    Falkowski: very cool; was a mechanic, loved to rebuild transmissions.
    West: a good guy with an absolute witch for a wife.

    Jack Thomas: the most corrupt CO, maybe the most corrupt elder I have ever known. He tore apart congregations to suit his whims, and install his toadies. Fu** you and the horse you rode in on, Jack.
    PS: the 500 was NOT from the elder you thought it was, stupid!! You greased the skids for the WRONG guy, Mr. I-am-Simony.

    Tomiasu: sounds completely like Sulu on Star Trek. Really.
    Brown: a cipher; very bland.
    Don Friend: a nice guy who I used to give money too; he wanted the elders to promote me! I didn't want the position or qualify; I couldn't figure it out at first, funny. He thought I was greasing!!
    Bennett: Ugh. A real little Napoleon but with a Brit accent. Would reduce students to tears on Saturday assembly school parts.
    Weining; a great speaker.
    Valorz: the best speaker I have ever heard, in or out of the WT.
    Duane Holmen (aka Haircut Holmen): a real putz; in love with himself. Would offer to cut brothers hair before assembly parts if he thought it was too long.

    Can't remember the rest.
    But I know they all love the green handshake.
