    A Sister rang and left a message to see how we are....but I called back the next day and she said...."Oh sorry I have no time to talk, the Circuit Oversear is coming for dinner, can you call back?" This reminds me of C.O dinners it's a major suck Jesus and his apostles are coming for dinner. The Pioneers like this Sister always get the C.O to come over.

    Anyone had the pleasure?

    Yes, we always hosted the CO and DO at our house back in the 60's.

    Back before my wife and I were married I was friendly with the (single) CO Clive Pitman. He told me one time that he didn't really like getting huge 3 course lunches as it always made him sleepy in the afternoon. His preference was for a simple meal of soup and sandwiches; like a normal lunchtime meal...

    So, I had him round for lunch one time to my little pioneer flat and my girlfriend (who's now my wife) made soup and sandwiches. He was appreciative.

    The next CO who visited us was the infamous Terry Armstrong. By now I was married, and we invited Terry and his wife for lunch during his visit. Again, my wife made homemade soup and a big pile of sandwiches.

    When the sandwiches were brought through from the kitchen, Terry and Ann just looked at them and then at each other. I noticed that they only had one small half of a sandwich each. Towards the end of lunchtime Ann spoke up and said, "you know, the Governing Body expects us to be served with a proper 3 course meal at lunchtime."

    My wife was only 18 at the time, we'd only been married for a few months, and having the CO and his wife round for lunch at the time was really stressful to her. She was worried sick that what we (both pioneers) were offering wouldn't be good enough. Ann's ungrateful comments confirmed her worst fears.

    I've never forgotten the look on Gail's face as she apologised over and over again to those two ungrateful bastards.

    It was 14 years before we ever offered hospitality to a CO again.

    My wife made a Kiwi pie for desert after the dinner. The CO enjoyed it, his wife looked at it like it was green glowing goo from Mars.

    I doubt the hounder-hounder would want to stay with me more than once. That is, unless he likes Christmas music (and rap), Christmas decorations left up all summer, a computer left on apostate web sites whenever I feel like visiting them, books telling people that morality is so simple that no Bible is needed to figure it out, porn, a Ouija board, the fact that there isn't a single piece of littera-trash from the Filthful and Disgraceful Slavebugger in the place, and the fact that I will put the heat down to 55 o and not turn it up a bit for him. As for meals, I plan on having full Christmas food items, regardless of what season it is. And hope he likes 50 Cent.

    I bet that will be the last time that hounder-hounder will ever want to stay with me.

    My ex was a great italian cook and every CO visit they were the ones that they used to call us for a good italian meal.

    Otherwise they would be stuck with chicken, corn, peas and an ugly salad.

    The CO enjoyed the best, on the other hand don't we all.

    Back in the seventies my Aunt wanted my Uncle to receive some encouragement, so she put her name down for feeding the CO. She was selected for a week night meal. She was given a list of what foods were acceptable, seeing that the CO stomach didn't like certain foods. My Aunt prepared the meal and we all ate. After dinner my Aunt and Sisiter Jararcz went into the kitchen cleaning up. That left Jaracz, my Uncle and myself in the dinning room. My Uncle was concerned about an elderly sister that lived above the hall. The hall was actually an old house and it was going to be torn down and a new hall built in its place. He was concerned about were this sister would live. He tried to discuss it with Jararcz. Jararcz said " Well the Elders will handle that" and pick up the newspaper, held it to his face and read it. He had no interest in the isiter's plight. That was the end of my Uncle's encouragement. Somehow that did not get him back to the meetings.
