I remember Mrs. Lilly. She used to come out to the house and help Moma out with the household stuff, cooking, cleaning and such. I didn't know it at the time but she was a cousin from a long way back up the tree. I used to be amazed at how she could wash dishes in steaming hot water and put it on the drain rack still smokin' hot. I used to take her squirrels and turtles and stuff from my hunting expeditions. She was a dear lady whom I deeply respected. I miss her now and then.
For those of you who wondered about the pies at Lea's in Lecompte, I can guarantee the ones that they sold in the late 60's and early 70's were definitely homemade. I delivered quite a few for Dee. (Dee was my grandmother on Moma's side) She made cherry and pecan pies especially. It hurt to deliver them because I was starving by the time I got home. Dee was about the best at apple and cherry pies. Aunt Cherry and Moma definitely took after their mother. I'm also glad my eldest got to meet her, though he was only two or three at the time. Got a couple of pictures at the nursing home with Bran and Dee. Another lady I miss dearly.
There are quite a few others that I haven't mentioned here, Aunt Jo, Aunt Al, Grandma. I will bring up some more memories as time goes on.

Sitting, eating, listening to BB King and Red Cloud. Dinnertime on a Friday Fixed weed eater, chain saw. Looking for missing paperwork. Just all kinda fun things. Debating whether to follow Grandma's rule or moving the 4th family picnic (Sunday) to the 3rd. Sometimes I think of following in my forefather's footsteps and rejecting the tyranny we have been facing for the past few decades. To me it is unconscionable for people to vote on their own raises, their own healthcare, their own benefits when the expense of that burden is not shared by them but placed on the ones who actually work for a living. The lack of character displayed in the vilifying of one who disagrees and then turning around and saying it is ok if they do it. Using hearsay as fact and demanding fact if directed at them. If you want names, just look at the names absent from the media now. I would like to urge all of a truly Christian mind in California to ensure you have a path out of that place and when the world starts shaking again, use it.

I usually say that when the thermometer gets below 60. Just the way I am. I'm not politically correct nor politically active. But I do make the trip to the polls and vote with the few live and many dead voters around here. It do get interesting sometimes. Specially when someone forgets a leg or an arm. But as long as the picture on the id isn't too faded, no worries. Of course, this doesn't make up for the dead beats who don't ever worry about voting. Back when Fast Eddie ran agin da Dukester there were quite a few people who voted on everything else but just could not pull a guvna lever. I understand that, I do. But still, vote for the crook, it's important.
I do support fully limiting terms of politicians. Judges, too. And school boards and police juries and all the other elected "officials". To me it is simple common sense.

No, not talking fortune cookies, talking wars. Like this current political one.
Sun Tzu indicates that trying to run different operations in the same manner is not intelligent. That is what I see in the history of leadership in this country from the beginning. By not selecting leaders who are competent in leadership positions we have a country that is less than 23 years away from total anarchy. That calculation is dependent on power being balanced and not skewed in one direction.
What we need is a leader who knows when to fight and when not to fight. One who can see the value of those who are wealthy or poor. Who unifies the people by giving them common cause for progress. But especially one who knows when to speak and when to keep silent. Our last 5 presidents have failed miserably and no matter the outcome of this last election I see no possibility for improvement, just the failing collapse of a dream that now is gone. I am now waiting for that massive failure to hit and when this country fractures, I will help to rebuild Louisiana as best as I can.
On the medical front this latest flu bug has about reached its peak and should get there before April, barring the stupidity of man. Hopefully after that it will subside as the others have until some politician gets to be friendly with our enemies again and a newer mutation is developed. You do realizes that in three more steps the uncontrollable mutation will emerge and there will be only a remnant of humanity left to greet the Lord on His return.
Am I the only one who is willing to ask the cost of this nation's downfall? Our downfall will not be just an American failure but world-wide catastrophe. We are frighteningly like the German people of the early Hitler times. I see uncontrollable inflation knocking at the door. I see a time where people call for the government to solve our problems when that is not supposed to be the function of government.
Calling for a leader to correct the situation is exactly what happened in the '30s and it seems to be approaching again, and the results will be the same. We have an abundant supply of megalomaniacs in out two main parties as well as most of the minority parties. The opportunity for the charismatic pontificate to assume the leadership role that will break the country apart and plunge the whole world into chaos is less than 15 years from now. There is no moral leadership in the District now and it has been on a decline since long before my lifetime.
WHO will count the cost and how shall it be put on us to pay. You know our leadership will not pay that cost. But in the end, we will all pay for their stupidity, unless we do something soon to prevent what is to come. What can we do? It seems to me that a radical uprising in support of the Constitution is a must. Accountability of the country's budgeting is far past due. Our tendency to support other nations before we have taken care of our own MUST be controlled and we must do something radical with our own support systems. If we don't have the money we cannot give money away. Nor can we lend money we don't have or spend money we don't have.
Since this country now wishes to put God out of it, God may very well leave it to it's own devices, until judgement day comes. Assyrians, Babylonians, Grecian, Roman, Ottoman, all of these empires fell under judgement and there are only remnants left from them. We are heading the same way.
I support term limits.
I support putting congress on the SS system.
I support returning congress to its original payment system or limiting their pay to the national average income. Also should there be a desire that they should receive any sort of raise it should be presented to the people for approval and not to themselves.
