Taking the High Road.....
(My faithful friend, Luanne, outside of Jenkins Manor)
Clark Bartram over at Unintelligent Design recently mentioned yours truly in a post which discussed some of his favorite books. Apparantly this represents some kind of blog equivalent to a chain letter and involves tagging other blogs, such as mine, to continue the chain of posts. I have long considered Mr. Bartram to be my foil in the blogging community but was suprised at the hurtful way in which I was "tagged". Mr. Bartram wrote, "Spooner Jenkins(I bet he'll say something about cows, turkeys, or the devil)". I will take the high road and not acknowledge Mr. Bartram's ignorance and demeaning words, not just of myself but of the literally tens of Belvidere citizens who have falled prey to the savage turkey Death Brigades that have long terrorized our surrounding land, particularly in the southwest quadrant. I will only say this:
When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Belvidere and basking in the of warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn't imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter. Mr. Bartram, the long winter is your life, closed minded to the aspects of the world around us that can't be explained by a fancy science book. Here in Belvidere we understand that understanding truth comes in many forms. We cycle between ignorance and knowledge just as winter becomes spring. That is what makes us human. There can be no spring without the winter. Only God has supreme knowledge, and supreme love for his chosen people. The good people of Belvidere are part of that group who will praise God in Heaven triumphantly for all eternity. Winter holds no power over us.
To anwer the questions of your silly game, each is easily fulfilled by my favorite book(other than the Bible of course), "The Field Guide to John Deere Tractors" by Don Macmillan.
