Coming Soon

Tomorrow evening is the Harvest Party at church. We do this every year to give the kids a safer alternative than trick-or-treating. The costumes are hilarious - those of you who do not attend our church should be aware that we have a crazy bunch of people. I do believe the adults have way more fun than the kids.

I'll be posting pics after the party! Until then, here's a pic of a guy at church who is dressed like ... well ... you guess who. (and this wasn't even Halloween!)

Yeah, I did read Brian's comment. I've been trying for weeks to talk him out of that idea. He's such a goofball.

Rock and roll will never die! Despite christianitys best efforts. Thank the lord! We dont celebrate pagan festivals down here, we worship the God of hedonism without any hoo ha in our daily lives... we dont feel the need to get dressed up fancy for it.. the land of the Long weekend..Thats us!

Just wanted to stop by to thank you for your comments on my post yesterday, and comment on your pine rige post about wounded knee..that was realy touching. Our indigenous population has suffered a simliar fate.

We are so good at murdering with one hand while we praise and give thanks with the other...

Hey Urbs,

Let's hope rock and roll never dies. A world without rock is not a world I want to consider. =)

Yeah, it's horriffic what has been done to the native people. On our reservations it was (unfortunately) the white missionaries who did a lot of the damage. Somehow that's not hard for me to believe.
