Adventure before dementia

50 Question MEME.

I am yet again procrastinating - I want to get some letters written, yet here I am doing a MEME - one that I snagged from beanbeans   some time ago.
She found it on Google - and it is 50 questions -

Play if you want to.

Hope you are having a fun day - I had better get on with things now!

A Story For All Atheists!

Someone has just sent me this - Hope you enjoy!

A Story For Atheists.

An atheist was walking through the woods.
"What majestic trees"!
"What powerful rivers"!
"What beautiful animals"!
He said to himself.

As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him.

He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him.

He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer. He tripped & fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him.

At that instant the Atheist cried out, "Oh my God!"

Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent.

As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky. "You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer"?

The atheist looked directly into the light, "It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a Christian"?

"Very well," said the voice.

The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed. And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & spoke:

"Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen."


Hope you all enjoy your dinner today!

"Remember, Remember
The Fifth of November -
Gunpowder, treason and Plot"


As someone else put it - Guy Faulkes ... the only decent person to try to get into Parliament!

However you want to remember the Gunpowder Plot, being English, I am just glad it is not forgotten!

When I was young, we used to have a few fireworks and a bonfire in our back garden ... from the age of 11 - 18 the Sunday School group I was a member of used to organise an event - and my thoughts go there whenever I eat Tomato Soup ... they used to be really fun - excitement, food, friends ... all ina safe atmosphere - finished with singing our favourite choruses round a huge bonfire. The weather was always great, and non of the fireworks miss-fired ... Lovely memories.

I couldn't get to our main event as I saw a patient this evening, but watched about 1/2 of it from my garden ... Under the cut, are a few, not brilliant, pictures.

There are still fireworks going off from time to time - Hopefully everyone will have enjoyed themselves - and had a safe night.
