    Ok.....ya gotta hear this ......pops, who is 80 + , slightly nacisistic, slight case of alzheimers, and a stubborn good ol man.

    Decided to grow a pretty nice lookin goatee this week....

    Elders swooped on him so quick, it was crazy......

    Pops looked like he was diggin the whole show of testosterone being flung in his face , but he stood his ground and smiled...

    When the dust settled, and pops had his say....

    He replied......"IM IMITATING JESUS, AND JEHOVAH "....!!!!

    OMG...the smile on my face, and the one on my dads was priceless......along with the frowns on theirs..

    Thats all....just wanted to share that.☺

    That's ace! When I grew a beard a sister said that some may find it offensive... So I replied "I find nasal hair offensive but that's allowed"

    Great story! especially coming from an old timer. You would think they are the most conservative and intransigent.

    I think when you said "slight case of Alzheimer's" that says it all, or just a bit of it.

    But please know that I think that anyone that can stand up to the pompous asshole elders in their Congregation, they're alright with me !!

    I love it when old folks take advantage of their advanced years to get away with saying what we'd all love to say and to call-out B.S when they encounter it.

    Good for you, bn's dad! Tell them young whipper-snappers to shove it!
