Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
It has been a long week of work. For the month of February, I farmed myself out to another department as there wasn’t a lot going on in mine.
Great experience, long hours.
I have been working all of the hours I can because copays are expensive.
I am tired, but I feel productive.
The other day, I was invited to the retirement of an influential Mennonite religious figure.
It was an honor to speak at this function given that I am not affiliated with them, nor am I adept at such things.
I will tell you this; in Colorado, they have recently been marginalized for their religious beliefs.
I stand behind them. They are Americans and have the right to religious freedom as does everyone.
Our Mennonite neighbors have been there for me and I will defend their right to worship the best I can.
You see, I have a right to worship as well. It is a God-given right.
Liberty is eroding in the United States and there may a time where we will be jailed for assembling. It has happened to our Northern neighbors in Canada.
I will go down in history saying nothing when I have a platform to speak on. FYI, on this topic, I will defend my post in the comments section.
Speaking of platforms, you are welcome to listen live at our church when service is held. It will be at 10 AM and 6 PM Mountain Standard Time.
In other news, My Beloved has graduated to a cane and is buzzing around pretty well lately. Pray for her arm; it is not waking up as fast as we would like.
Speaking of fast, my daughter is learning pretty quickly about driving. Down the road, I think she will be a responsibile driver. Yesterday we tried a busy intersection, went out for coffee, and drove in a field.
We practiced using the emergency brake, driving in reverse and learned about donuts in the mud. We also did three point turns.
When I dropped my daughter off at driver’s education for those many weeks, I thought she would have done a few of these things. I found out that the company wants us to drive with them a bit before they train them. Hopefully, I don’t teach her too many bad habits.
After our driving lessons, Brother’s Campfire had a sizable gettogether. We had more guests than you could shake a stick at. (Keep in mind that you should not shake sticks at guests.)
Me and my son prepared chicken and oven fried potatoes and my mother inlaw made a vegetable tray, cauliflower salad, and a cheese, meat and cracker platter.
Others brought shepherd’s pie, chocolate cake, cookies, soda, and lots of other yumminess.
There were a lot of us and
a lesson in parking may have been in order. Most of the time, I get a few cars set in a direction as a guide to parking, but forgot. Fortunately, I have nifty neighbors.
