    Hey Garyb,
    Maybe you didn't get invited to Bethel because of the Cowboy hat. They probably had a rule not to wear them. What do you think? lol Panther

    Hey Panther

    I was a bad Witness. I rode my Harley hard tail to the Kingdom Halls. I bought a black 1959 Cadillac and drove that around for 5 years. That bothered more than a few circuit servants. That Caddy made a great service car, though it looked a bit like we broke out of a funeral parade.

    Now the KH parking lots are filled with Cadillacs and Lincolns.

    I never thought it might be the hat. Maybe I should let them know I don't have a horse??

    Gary, are you impersonating a cowboy? Thats a sin ya know. I wear a cowboy hat sometimes too and I dont have a horse anymore either. I guess we are lost to the world.

    Associating with Witnesses that are considered "weak"......Watching any "R" rated movie.......Not pioneering whenyou KNOW you can

    Yup! My hat is just part of one of my many costumes. Apparently I have an eclectic wardrobe gene gone over to the wild side. It's a part of my personality that so many people find especially endearing.

    After meals at Bethel, is there still the mad dash by some to scoop up as many of the leftovers as they can get to?

    About 5 years ago we went and ate at Bethel and they did it then. I thought that was quite odd, but, I gave in to the temptation and did it myself too. I stuffed as much as I could into my suit jacket pockets. The pacific salmon we ate made my suit smell, so after a few meeting, the elders suggested I get it cleaned.

    Kwin, that story sounds "fishy".

    A JW sin is not putting money in the contribution boxes. Not sharing your car in the field service.

    You caught me trying to be funny . Just trying to add some humour to someone's possibly dull day.

    Letting your "mind wander" during the meetings. Ok, you got me. I was thinking about sex, of course, like everyone else there. That zombie look on everyones faces? That's sex on the brain.
