    There was one in the first hall I can remember. She was old as dirt had a teenage son and was married. I was always scared of her she looked crazy and she tried to sing those damned kingdom song like an opera singer She had a horrible voice, always sang to loudest, always wore her glasses perched on the tip of her nose and was about 6'2" tall.

    She really looked scary!

    I'm the only anointed in our Hall. And I'm a teenager.

    I remember one guy in his 80s. He always wore his suit and tie every ware. And I mean every ware. Went to a picnic there he was. He would walk along side of a river near his house there he is in his suit and tie. Very strange! Im sure he will not go hunting with me.

    I've known several folks that claimed to be of the "anoited" and they were all nut jobs. Just plain crazy. One claimed that Jehovah communicated with her.

    I knew several that were in their 60's when I was a teenager. I didn't find them much different than any nonanointed at the same age. What I found hard to deal with is GC jws who felt the anointed were holier than the rest of the rank and file. The ones I knew said that the requirements were the same, that they didn't have any special insight independent of the "organization." I know there were some that said they did, but not the ones I knew.
