"You're gonna get hurt!"
~(Gay(?) neighbor)~

you can picture matter 
expanding into nothing 
is something...
wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.

A neighbor of mine who works for Emory University, saw me working in the front yard as he drove by.  Made a u-turn and came back,  pulling into my driveway.  i explained the signs to him how the questions marks renders my signs neutral.

He seemed okay once i explained the signs;
far as i could tell?

"Oh!  We're not that kind of Christian."
~(Janet and Bob(?)ThD)~

"Alright, Bob! 
Let's not go forgetting our rural country doctors delievering babies twenty-four hours/days a week!  
Again, Bob! 
 Do not forget our rural country doctors delivering b(i)bies 24/7 days a week!"

And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

According to Christian tradition, Peter is said to have been crucified in Rome under Emperor Nero Augustus Caesar. It is traditionally held that he was crucified upside down at his own request, since he saw himself unworthy to be crucified in the same way as Jesus Christ. Catholic tradition holds that Saint Peter's site of crucifixion is located in the Clementine Chapel, while his mortal bones and remains are contained in the underground Confessio of St. Peter's Basilica, where Pope Paul VI announced the excavated discovery of a first-century Roman cemetery in 1968. Every June 29 since 1736, a life-size statue of Saint Peter has been crowned in St. Peter's Basilica with a papal tiararing of the fisherman, and papal vestments, as part of the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul. By Catholic doctrine, the direct papal successor to Saint Peter is Pope Francis.

Alternatively, Bartolomew has been identified with Nathanael, as presented in the Gospel of according to John.  Nathanael is introduced as a friend of Philip. He is described as initially being skeptical about the Messiah coming from Nazareth, saying: "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?", but nonetheless, follows Philip's invitation. Jesus immediately appraises him as "Here is a man in whom there is no deception." Some scholars hold that Jesus' quote "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you", is based on a Jewish figure of speech referring to studying the Torah. Nathanael recognizes Jesus as "the Son of God" and "the King of Israel". He reappears at the end of John's gospel as one of the disciples to whom Jesus appeared at the Sea of Galilee after the Resurrection.

Well, my hot tub is under a fig tree.
I can see it's not quite the beginning of spring: My star magnolia is always the first to bloom.

Christian tradition has three stories about Bartholomew's death: "One speaks of his being kidnapped, beaten unconscious, and cast into the sea to drown. Another account states that he was crucified upside down, and another says that he was skinned alive and beheaded in Albac orAlbanopolis", near BaşkaleTurkey.
The account of Bartholomew being skinned alive is the most represented in works of art, and consequently Bartholomew is often shown with a large knife, holding his own skin (as in Michelangelo's Last Judgment), or both. Bartholomew is also the patron saint of tanners.
Bartholomew plays a part in Francis Bacon's Utopian tale New Atlantis, about a mythical isolated land Bensalem populated by a people dedicated to reason and natural philosophy. Some twenty years after the ascension of Christ the people of Bensalem found an ark floating off their shore. The ark contained a letter as well as the books of the Old and New Testaments. The letter was from Bartholomew the Apostle and declared that an angel told him to set the ark and its contents afloat. Thus the scientists of Bensalem received the revelation of the Word of God.

I'm still wanting to believe this song is about Joseph being the parental father.  He was the one who took on a responsibility not required of him in any way.  This is Jesus of Nazareth recognizing him for it. By convincing his mother Mary, that his heart was just as big: Having found "thou artful dodger way"  getting a mother's love for a son she(?)never(?)asked for.

Oh boy this going to be a tough act to follow through with!

dad was "head of  household" while mother was the "neck."
That was easy enough.

Boxed inside a black hole

Rev. Bert's mother(ThD?0)?

As if one wasn't bad enough!

Prince of  L.ust going to have a hard time against, not just one, but three LOX!

Aw, Jesus! Fuck a duck!
(to the tune of row, row, row your boat)
Fuck! Fuck! Fuck a duck!
Screw a kangaroo.
Sixty-nine a porcupine!
An orgy at the zoo.

Such an easy sell these days.

There is no such thing as right or wrong, good vs. evil;  
by-products of circumstances.

Everything does have everything to do with everything!

"Well, gotta play a card eventually..."

rather be assassinated for my political activism, 
 live a long miserable life a mindless conforming zombie!"

Then there is the issue of my home's value
along with the inheritance from my father and mother's hard work;
 as well as,
blood, sweat, and tears 
Father's large African-American clientele. 

I'm definitely not a self made man.

Nor have i ...ever... claimed to be.  

I'm going to figure out a way
half my home is from my parent's hard work and paid for with inheritance from them through my father's careful estate planning, 
the other half owned by America's African-American community; all of it going to charity expiating not just the sins of my past...
sins of the present as well.

The total of my family combined with the total of G. Robert Gary, Sr. ThD and his family.

Definitely a Methodist story
including my distance 2nd cousin Blue Dog Democrat Mike Avery Ross, 
poster child 
the Democratic opposition to Obama Care; 
running for Governor of Arkansas.

"They say it's hard to do the right thing.
It's not hard to do the right thing; 
it's just hard knowing what the right thing to do is?
Once you know, 
it's hard not to do the right thing.
A good man, 
as well as important to add this day and age, 
a good woman...
is not without sin.
They admit, then expiate.

Figure this later.

Gotta take a break!
