GOOD  MORNING  FRIENDS

and
to
ALL
who responded to
TUESDAY'S
KASIYH
Blog post.

Y'all were not only informative
but
congenial
as well.

Who says we can't communicate with one another
even if we might not see eye-to-eye on everything ?

Did GGC get the answers we'd hoped for?
No.

Did we learn a thing or two?
Yes.

One of the most important things we were reminded of
was
how
we are to have such
wonder-filled
family and friends.

Even though we do not truly believe in such,
Let's
look into our
"Crystal Ball"
and
see what our future may hold.

We see an
event
occurring
on or around
Saturday, July 8th, 2017

Although blurry
our
"Crystal Ball"
is showing
the following:



and


Hmmmmmmm



ANY GUESSES
as to
WHAT THIS COULD MEAN

Dear Republicans*  and others who voted for Donald Trump as POTUS,

From:
GKS420@verizon.net

   We are seeking an answer to some questions for which you may have the answers.  Kindly help us understand, we truly have a deep desire to comprehend your point of view.

For the most part, are you happy with this administration and its proposals to this point in time?

What about the proposed changes to the Affordable Care Act, are you on board with the changes to be made by the Trump administration?   Why?  Why not?

And what about your thoughts on the proposed cuts to the budget which will add 10% to the military whilst slashing programs for the disenfranchised ?   How does this set with you ? 

Could you kindly explain to us your view[s] on President Trump's consistent tweeting,  many of which have been proven to be outright lies ?   Is the President just "blowing off steam" and as such, we should not take him seriously ? How do you, as Trump supporters, deal with what many of us consider to be overt insipidness, on a daily basis ?

Oh, and this one really requires some type of explanation from you as we simply don't get it.  Really.  How does one call oneself a "Christian" and yet seems to ignore the following words of Christ: "Whatsoever you do to the LEAST of my brethren, that you do unto ME."  You know what we are referring to ,,,, how DO you justify supporting Trump's budget cuts to the most needy amongst us,
whilst giving tax breaks to the rich and increasing military spending ?

We have many more questions, but this will suffice for now.  It is not beyond the realms of possibility that we are simply ignorant.  We truly want to understand.  Kindly help us,,,PLEASE.

Sincerely,
                     Gregory   Greg   Craig

P.S.  When we bring up politics on this Blog, most REPUBLICANS and TRUMP supporters manage to CLAM UP ---  WHY ?  What are you so ASHAMED of ?  We know who some of you are, even the less vocal amongst you , , , WHY are you hiding ?



 *  Until November 15th, 2016 MJ and GGC were registered Republicans.  Both of us raised in staunch Republican households.  We "saw the light" [so-to-speak] during the administration of George W. Bush, but kept hoping our political party would turn back to what it used to be.  Alas, it became even worse.  The first time we actually voted for a non-Republican, we both felt a little odd but yet we knew it was the correct thing to do.   Finally, when we could stand it no more, we changed our political party association and became Democrats.  [[ We waited so late to switch, that said switch could not occur until one week after the General Election of 2016.  Hence we have been official Democrats for a little over four months now.]

GOOD  MORNING  FRIENDS


*

*

*



So
MONDAY 
3-13-2017
we had a
KASIYH
blog post written
which never made it to publication.

T'is just as well
as it was mostly GGC
being a
whining

about the overt insipidness
of some local medical establishments.

It's
history
now.

*

*

*


AND
then
we began a post for
TUESDAY
3 - 14 - 2017
and
IT
never made it to publication yesterday.

BELOW
is brief part Tuesday's writings:




Nor'easter
is the biggie in the news currently.

Depends a great deal on
exactly
where you are positioned
as to how many inches
you'll end up getting.

Story of my life.



*

*

*

Therefore
we
TRIED AGAIN
for
WEDNESDAY
3 - 13 - 2017





MJ
had to
BE
AT
work
by
5:00 A.M.

That means he got up at 3:15 a.m.

GGC
had gone to be around 2:00 a.m.
[ long story ]
so we saw him off to work then went back to bed for a bit.

This might be a
droopy eye-lid evening

*

*

*


[ There were more WEDENSDAY writing's = but I erased them.]

*

*

*


And
then it was
THURSDAY
March 16, 2017




TODAY

at
this
moment
in
TIME
[ and quite a bit recently to be truthful ]

GGC is feeling
OVERWHELMINGLY
!   BLESSED   !



and
that's inclusive of
[ even ]
CRAIG


Usually
GREGORY
can find
multiple blessings
to
! REJOICE !
over

and

GREG
generally can find at least a blessing each day

but
when even
CRAIG
is
feelin'
BLESSED

that qualifies as

We then had numerous pics of some of the
BLESSINGS
in our life.

Deleted those
because to leave them as they were
could
in fact and in deed
give
some folks
the impression that they were excluded as
GGC's
Blessings.



YESTERDAY
was
St. Patrick's Day
and
we celebrated it as such



[ For brother Yog ]







And here we are on
Saturday
March 18th




Lest anymore time pass
we are hereby
just going to
publish
this

HODGE PODGE
mess

and start again another
day - week - month,
who knows
?



GEEEEEEESH.
" Here's lookin' at you, kids."

GOOD  DAY  FRIENDS


*

*

*



Yesterday
we had occasion to be in
Rochester, NY
and
the wind was
CrAzY:
Tree's down,
telephone poles down
electric wires across the roads
traffic lights NOT working at all
some traffic lights falling onto the roads,
etc.

In the midst of it all,
nearly everyone on the roads were
overtly
polite and courageous.
BRAVO
ROCHESTER, NEW YORK

Bible / Book
STUDY
Monday eve
at
Grace United Church
[ previously CT-FCC church ]
went quite well.
We are studying
" The Last Week "
A Day-by-Day
Account of Jesus's
Final Week in Jerusalem"
by
Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossman

Gregory was concerned the book might be
too out of his
comfort zone,
but alas,
so far that is not the case.

Fifty-two  pages to read, study, high-light for next week's class.
I'll keep you posted.
[ Whether you want to be or not.]

*

*

*

MJ
works twelve hours this coming Saturday
and
C and S
will be outta town.
Thank God
for
Paulie Pinkerton McPoodle

GGC has made some semi-major life decisions
as of late.
Feels good.

SIX
more days

MARK JOSEPH FELDBAUER

YEARS
SEASONED

VERY EXCITED
that we have tickets to see

Preparations for
JAXSON'S 
5th  Birthday
are moving right along.

Speaking of
JAXSON
he has now had
THREE DAYS in A ROW
at
Pre-School
without his name on the [naughty] board.

I am a wee bit concerned as I told him if he ever got
FIVE DAYS in A ROW
that
Poppa G. would run around the school
NAKED
[ he includes underpants as still "naked" thank God ].

I never
EVER
thought he's have a
"three-peat"
[ as he did yesterday].

What if he
DOES
get through this week with
No Name on the Board
?
?
?

I thought he might forget me saying that,
but
Oh No
he even repeated the same to Ga-Ga
[ Connie ]

Gotta think of a way outta this one
OR
maybe today he'll have his name on the board.



YOUR THOUGHTS
on
HOW
I can get out of this
IF
he completes the week with
No Name on Board
?

Gotta fly for now folks.

Can't believe it's been a WEEK since the last post.
In that time
we've entered

the month of
MARCH


AND

the holy season of






IT'S BEEN
TOOOOOOO LONG

SO


WORLD WIDE:

Is it just me or has the world gone
?

It sure seems like
is
upside
down.

Not in all cases
[thank God]
but it seem like many are becoming
less caring,
less compassionate,
less unified,
more divided
more nationally self-concerned,
and
much more suspicious of one-another.

WHAT THINKEST THOU?

*

*

*


NATIONALLY :

Back in the day there was a TV show called
" To Tell The Truth "
[ Who remembers that show ? ]

Each episode had three people claiming to be a certain individual.

A panel of four folks were able to question
all three people in to
expose the two imposters
and
reveal the true / actual  individual.

I'm feeling this might be applicable to our current POTUS.

" Will the
REAL
President Trump
please
stand up! "

POTUS's
speech
Tuesday night was the most
"presidential"
I've seen him in a long time
[ ever ? ]

THIS
was followed by even more
Russian revelations
[ this time involving A.G. Jeffy Sessions ]

AND

[ for now ]
the
refusal
off
FBI Head ~ James Comey
to
work with an independent group beginning to look into
the
Russian connection
to
President Trump's
election.

Each and every day
it's
something else
with this administration.


Attorney General Sessions
as of yesterday
has
recused himself
as well he should
from the
investigation into this ongoing mess,
thank heavens.

But talk about
weary,
many of us are simply
exhausted
from the
incompetence and insipidness
continually emanating
from
TRUMP
and his
administration.

YOUR  THOUGHTS?

On a lighter
NATIONAL
note:
The Shack
movie
has now been released.

We are very looking forward to seeing it.

Have read the book
and
to us at least
it was mind bending.

Apparently there are those
[ radical Christians extremists ? ]
( O, you don't like it when "you" are referred to that way ? )
[ Think about it ]
who are going to protest / preach vehemently against it.

That's their right
but
for what it's worth
yours truly
loved the book
and
recommends it to you.
[ Hopefully the same with the movie.]

Sometimes it's good to think outside the box.

Have you read
THE SHACK ?

Planning on seeing the movie?

STATE  WIDE :

Just this brief note,
which will make most smile and some want to vomit :
I am
SO VERY HAPPY
to live in a State represented by
Kristen Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer.

' nuff said.


*

*

*



LOCALLY :


NOT A THING

I am outta the loop on local happenings.
Sorry about that.

I will say one thing,
and
it is not exclusive to
BELMONT
by any means:

It's always a bit mystifying to me that when
a married couple is going through a
it seem like
every one who knows them,
picks a
SIDE.

With the local situation I am currently thinking about
even
MJ
had picked a "side".

This required me to think through his contacts
and
trace back to where he got his information.
Then I understood completely why he had the POV he did,
it was his source.

Interesting.

CHURCH
:

We are both still
LOVING
our church
ST. JOHN'S EPISCOPAL
Wellsville, NY
and
our
Faith Family
therein.

Rev. Carol
and
I
work together
VERY WELL
and as a
minister of music
this means more than could ever be defined.

I have been blessed to work with some
GREAT
priests and or pastors,
[ Especially Father Joe Penkaul @ St. Mary's - Belmont, NY ]
but
there have been those with whom it was not always so.

When a pastor / priest
and their
minister of music
do
not
see eye-to-eye
nor
work well together
Consequently
I am, among all men,
most richly
to be at
ST. JOHN'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH
working
hand-in-hand
with
Reverend Carol Stewart.


AND
y'all know I am
with
our little
ST. JOHN'S CHOIR

Home Base:

All's well.

MJ working hither and yon
on
TBP

Jaxson keeps me on my toes.
[ Have I ever mentioned how much I adore that child ? ]


We got a snail mail note
from
Sister Rosemary Benson
this week.
She's still alive and kicking.
LOVE that servant of God.
What a gal.

Spent quite a bit o' time at
Jones Memorial
yesterday
ending with
my pants falling
DOWN
in the
PARKING LOT
of the same
as I was getting into the truck
afterwards.
"Moon over dear Wellsville"
or
"Bad Moon Rising".
You decide.



Had a good phone chat with
Mark and Lorie Feldbauer
Tuesday eve.
We don't manage to connect enough,
but when we do,
t'is a
C R A Z Y GOOD TIME
for sure.




That's pretty much it for now folks.

Feel free to comment on anything / everything / nothing.

Many of you will ignore the political writings,
but that's okay,
I get it.
You're either
Repubs who are incapable of defending the Prez
or
Dems who must save your energy in order to RESIST!




Thanking you for your time this time till next time.
