Day 15, I think (I'm on vacation, I don't want to know what day it is)
I have to rank Spokane Washington high on the Apostate paradise list. Friday I put out an invitation to join someone for lunch in Spokane, Washington. Well we not only had lunch but also had breakfast, and dinner.(in nearby Soap Lake anyway)
The breakfast folks wanted to remain completely anonymous, so we will have to leave that as it is. I will say they are researchers and thinkers. The internet got the husband excited so he ordered Ray Franz's books, Carl Olof Jonnsons's books as well as Steven Hasson's and that was the end of their Watchtower experience. They even seem to be past the angry stage of leaving. So we came back from breakfast, cranked up the diesel and headed thirty minutes away to the site for lunch.
We had lunch with Puternut, BlueEyes and Octavia. The couple we met at breakfast were thrilled to hear that Puternut was "out". By this time we were all but hungry but ate again anyway. This gang was fun. What an exchange of thoughts, complements and playful insults among friends. Just like our breakfast companions, these three were quality people. One is a craftsman and entrepreneur, another is an artist, and the third is an electrical engineer. No wonder the Watchtower has a high percentage of Janitors. All the rest are leaving.
Joy, Blue Eyes, Octavia and Puternut.
But the day was not over. I'm going to save the dinner experience for a separated thread just so you all meet a couple who are major players in the fight for XJW rights yet whom few know. That thread will be entitled
Who in Sam Hill is Richard Rawe and why does he live in Soap Lake Washington.
