When I Survey The Wondrous Cross -- Isaac Watts, 1707

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ my God!
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood.

See from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Alan Jackson

We were supposed to work Ricky Van Shelton at the World Music Theater in Tinley Park, Illinois in early 90s. But he was sick with Strep throat and could not perform.

Alan Jackson was free and came is at the last minute as a substitute. He put on such a great performance they gave him a standing ovation.

That is one of those old memories I am so lucky to recall. ;)

Amen, and thank you.

One of my top three favorite hymns.

Around here, we sometimes sing the third verse without instrumental accompaniment.

Esso, this beautiful gal was a Hoosier from Alexandria in Madison County. She died of cancer in 2016.

Hey, I'm OK, P, somehow I always am. I guess Odin doesn't want me destabilizing Valhalla yet. That's OK, I'm patient.

It's been an eventful week. Someone close to me stepped on a [predatory lending] landmine. This was a bad one. I managed to diffuse it for just under $3,800. It was so deceptive, it had me fooled for several hours. Had I not caught it, it would've been close to $9,000, or worse after 90 days..

As soon as I have a 'paid-in-full' receipt in hand, I'm gonna contact the Indiana AG and maybe the FTC and make a heroic, fruitless attempt at tilting windmills. It'd make a great class action lawsuit.

She died of cancer in 2016.

My body count within the last year from SADS (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome) stands at five KFV (Killed From Vaxx), and two walking wounded, showing advanced dementia at a little over 60 y/o.

I'm to jaded to die. I'll probably end up as a green green belly button or nose ring on some tatted-up retard (I don't want to assume what gender).

Cheers, man! The meat is burned, and the Stoli is flowing!

BAR'S OPEN FOLKS! Love ya man, Pacman.

Make mine medium-rare with some sour cream/horseradish sauce to drag it through. Chow!

Wife and all the girls are at the beach this week, so I'm on my own here.

Broiled a rib-eye over hickory yesterday (used up the last of my Laredo mesquite years ago). Baked potato. Real butter. Beverage. Bliss.

Hey, Dad, if you end up on my doorstep [come in the back gate after I unlock it] I'll head up to Jameson's Meats and buy you anything you want!

I kinda know what you look like with a beard, so your probability of sucking chest wounds is low at the secret airbase.

(Edit) I keep locks on the wire to protect people from me.
