Yep, it's that time again! So, how's your weekend going? After a week of rain, we were pleased to see a bright sunny wintery day. The highlands look beautiful at this time of year. Last night Mrs Ozzie and I enjoyed a simply great meal at the Apostates Restaurant, and today shared with friends. What was on the menuu? Well, it wasn't a shiraz, but a cabernet sauvignon from the Margaret River region of Western Australia. It was a 2000 vintage and had a beautifully deep, dark red colour. Magic!
I thought reaching 50 polls would be a highlight of our weekend but we learned something today that, in the words of Mrs Ozzie, "is the highlight of the year for her". What is it? Well, we learned that, for a certainty, those in the higher echelons are questioning and may be having their own "Crises of Conscience". We sure and pray hope so. The "Sunday" program has had a devastating effect on many dubs here in Oz. If anyone involved is lurking and reading here, our thoughts are with you. "Get out her, my people, if you do not want to share with her in her sins."
Now, back to business!
It seems fitting to take a trip down memory lane with a smile today since this is our 50th. So, this weekend's poll question is:
Who chose the colours in your Kingdom Hall?
1. The body of elders
2. The service committee
3. The presiding overseer
4. The P.O.'s wife
5. A committee
6. The sisters
7. We couldn't decide so we asked the Regional Building Committee
8. They couldn't decide so they asked Bethel
9. Bethel couldn't decide so they asked Crooklyn
10. The G.B. asked their wives
11. Their wives said, "What does the Bible say?"
12. We got white!
13. Other (oh, you must be kidding!) give details
We're looking forward to sharing your reminiscences, so get your posts in. Enjoy.
