Bad Thanksgiving Habits and How They Started

The following is the video of a skit I wrote entitled “Bad Thanksgiving Habits and How They Started.” It was performed by the drama team at Westmore COG on Sunday, Nov 20, 2015. Most Americans will probably enjoy the subtle (or not so subtle) references contained in it. If you like it, please leave a comment and pass the link on to someone else to view, too. The sequel to this skit (from 2016) is titled Mary’s First Real Thanksgiving. If your drama group is interested in performing the skit, the script and director’s copy are available (donation suggested).  Please use the contact form to request a copy. … Read entire article »

A Note to Harried, Frustrated, Overworked Moms

A Note to Harried, Frustrated, Overworked Moms

My wife and I have been parents for a long, long time.  At least, it seems that way.  One thing I’ve learned is that being a parent is a tiring job.  Actually, it can be exhausting. I likes to observe people.  As we celebrate Mother’s Day this month, I can look around at the mothers of all ages in my circle of friends and at church and reflect on their countenances.  I see the mothers of … Read entire article »

Never Trust a Rainbow on the Amazon River

Never Trust a Rainbow on the Amazon River

This article is a feeble attempt to put into words what happened on what I now call my last Sunday in Brazil, but at the time I was calling it my last Sunday.  After morning church, I had spent part of the day wandering jungle paths with my camera and my trusty native guide, Logan.  Then Phil took me and some other guests out on a beautiful excursion across half of the Amazon where I … Read entire article »

How to Take a Cold Shower: A Primer for Spoiled Americans

How to Take a Cold Shower:  A Primer for Spoiled Americans

Before the trip passes by, I felt compelled to write what I hope will be an instructive guide for American tourists traveling to Brazil.  First, you have to understand that Brazil is hot.  Yes, I know, Arizona is hot.  Florida is unbearable.  And the record for hottest temperature on earth was in Death Valley, CA.  Blah, blah, blah. Brazil is a different kind of hot.  To illustrate this, I’ve included this photo of my deodorant stick.  … Read entire article »

Brazil Day Twelve: My New Vocabulary Word

Brazil Day Twelve: My New Vocabulary Word

We’ve been plugging away on the phones for two weeks now. But this evening, I was in for a real treat. The leader of the local organization, Almir, told me through an interpreter that we were going to have a “churrasco” to help celebrate my time in Brazil. Here is a big hint if you ever travel to Brazil. If someone ever invites you to a churrasco, raise your hand and say, “Yes.” Somewhere around 7 … Read entire article »

The Ride of My Life: Or Why My Son is Now Taller Than I Am

The Ride of My Life: Or Why My Son is Now Taller Than I Am

Today I had what can only be called “The Ride of My Life.” It started out with us leaving Paraquequara to head into town to begin the work on the phone system. We took the boat to the MAF site and then walked through the hangar to Phil’s motorcycle. While not painted on the chassis itself, I was soon to learn that this bike’s name is “Instrumento de Adrenalina.” The bike itself looked innocent enough (see photo). … Read entire article »

Brazil Day One

Brazil Day One

We spent part of the morning recovering from traveling all day Saturday.  In the afternoon, we had a lunch at a nearby restaurant in Manaus.  The place was packed.  It turns out that Sunday was a holiday in Brazil for “Day of the Woman.” After lunch we traveled to Puraquequara (“Home of the Electric Eel”) where our host family lives.  PQ, as they call it, is where the boarding school is for a number of the … Read entire article »

Thoughts on Jezebel

Thoughts on Jezebel

These notes are originally from (I think) 1994-1995. Eunuch – a male who had been castrated (against his will or not) who would then be responsible to tend to the needs and/or bidding of the queen’s most intimate affairs without the threat of sexual intercourse. There are several items that we need to notice in this regard: 1.  Someone who had been mutilated for Jezebel’s benefit. 2.  May have been attracted to Jezebel at some point in the past, but lost that … Read entire article »

The Little Electric Oven

The Little Electric Oven

One Christmas, at least I think it was Christmas and not a birthday, my parents bought sister a little oven. Now, this was in the days before lawyers had become fruitful, multiplied and replenished the earth. This wasn’t a piece of plastic with stickers to put on the oven to emulate fire. Nor did it come with a few round cans made of plastic labeled as corn or beans. No, this was a little Easy … Read entire article »
