Our prayers now should be for your daughter, that she may become an honorable woman and be able to lead a normal life. The eighty-eight million would be a big help too, I hope she gets it all.

Adi Can . . . . . . . . . Get her exercise YouTube

Adi Can . . . . . . . . . Really get with it, can't she?

You can view or bookmark this by clicking here. While you are there check out my other YouTube entries, click on Jim1Jim1. Or click on Jim1Jim1 now.
When we made this video we did two others, I would like to put all three of them together for you later.
She has so much fun playing. So do I, next to going for a walk this is our favorite play.
Other things now:

I will be slowing down in my blogging. I have so many other things I haven't done and since it is getting spring already I've got to be finishing up winter things.

My other hobbies are wanting to come out of the closet, namely:

Those are hobby things besides computers, blogging, and YouTube.

I have work to do too. We have the house fairly well painted and updated inside, now the outside and the yard are beckoning. Mrs. Jim can find some things as well.

There will be income tax again too, Mrs. Jim's and mine, then Dad's federal, Nebraska, and Iowa. Most of our required papers are here for me to organize.
I hope to write here a couple of times a week and Sundays. You won't have to check so often then until next winter!

I'm so glad spring is here in the South!

Yes, I know, it might be 22 degrees below zero where you live. I've often said you could do like President Reagan once said, let the people vote with their feet.

Adi and I went for a walk this morning. Mrs. Jim is playing golf with her buds.

We met this lady walking her young one in the perambulator (link to find out what one is). That's always a sure sign of spring!

There were bunches of robins too but they wouldn't stay still long enough for us to get their pictures. I'm sure they didn't know how friendly Adi is or they would have stayed for us.

Remember Adi saw her shadow on groundhog day. We just weren't where the groundhogs are or we'd have seen his shadow for ourselves.

Texans plants trees on Arbor Day. In Houston Arbor Day is January 27. Karen did that in yuppie style (link).

So did our Houston Chronicle newspaper columnist, Leon Hale (link):

"Here in Washington County, we've haven't had more than two or three mornings this winter that were cold enough to make you want to kill a hog.

If I had a hog to kill here at Winedale, I wouldn't wait past the middle of February to do it. Because I have lost all my confidence that the weather will operate on a seasonal schedule the way it once did.

Remember how we used to have spring in the spring, summer in the summer, fall in the fall and winter in the winter? Now we have 90-degree days in December. Who knows what February might bring?"

Our pear trees are budding too. I'll get you a picture when they bloom. Once in a rare while they bloom too early, like last year. Well, these little buggers will just bloom again in that case.

It seems just like the start of winter a couple of months ago when all their leaves turned red (link to my write-up on that).


Posted by Picasa
Remember those red berries on the holly tree in front of the pear tree in the picture before this one? What's left of them are on the ground now, waiting for the birds to eat them, as soon as Adi leaves.
And finally,

Adi thinks we can take the snow tires off Grandma's Mustang II now.

Three fixes


Use duck tape to hold the TV together

Use glue to glue the cabinet together

Use glue to glue the screw posts back on, then screw the cabinet tightly shut

Adi and the bear Youtube [Lion and the lamb?] How Great Is Our God

Or click here to view Chris Tomlin's How Great Is Our God from "coley2007's" YouTube videos. .
When I made my YouTube of Adi, below, I couldn't help but think of "the Lion and the Lamb." We sing this song quite often in our church services.

For Jim's YouTube of Adi tearing into her bear with audio, click here. For all my YouTube videos, click here.

We sing this song (above) often in church. There also have been famous sermons preached on the lion and the lamb the thoughts generally come from Revelation 5:5-6:(link)

5And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
6And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

Here Jesus is both the Lion and the Lamb.

He is the Lion who will Jesus Christ will come again and will appear as the Lion of the tribe of Judah. He will appear . . . and the earth shall tremble before him, and the hills shall melt (
Rev. 19:11-17; 20:11).

Jesus Christ will at the same time appear as a Lamb to his saints. (Revelation 5:6 above-

The lyrics to Chris Tomilin's song (
link) from Christian Lyrics. (link) The Lion and the Lamb verses are towards the middle.

Artist: Chris Tomlin

Album: Arriving

Track: How Great is Our God

The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice
All the earth rejoice

He wraps himself in Light, and darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice
Trembles at His voice

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God

Age to age He stands
And time is in His hands
Beginning and the end
Beginning and the end

The Godhead Three in One
Father Spirit Son
The Lion and the Lamb
The Lion and the Lamb

Name above all names
Worthy of all praise
My heart will sing
How great is our God

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God
