Hey Folks,

MDC-I know, that you know, what I'm gonna say to that, "moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue." Funny, both ends of that idea seem to cover the "Crazy Kim" situation.

Boo-Prayers for your friends and you. My goodness, put on some Tom Jones and relax.

MAYBERRY DEPUTY-Good to hear you're sticking around.
It's does seem, at times, like we are communicating like people shouting to each other in passing cars.

God Bless,

July 07, 2006 - Msg 42369: How's every one on this fine evening? Auh2o and MDC, great to hear from you! A hey back to you auh2o!

MAYBERRY DEPUTY : I don't know you well at all, and have never had a conversation, but I'm glad your sticking around. Im part of the chatting problem. I sometime's have conversation's with BWB, because he can't go to Sarah's chattroom. It's only fair. However me and BWB are being more carefull these day's when we do have a conversation. Hope you come by more often MAYBERRY DEPUTY!

I'll Check back later!

July 07, 2006 - Msg 42375: HAHAHAHA!! Auh2o says, "...put on some Tom Jones and relax". TOO funny. I hope Tom Jones becomes like VICKS around here, he is such a funny subject of conversation. I am finally relaxing after company came and went and Hubby is playing Yatze with the kids. (I will try to do it without the V and B, MDC! ha)

Hey Warren, how did that coconut pie turn out? Mine was pretty good but I think I baked it too long the top was really brown and hard. It tasted good but I think I prefer plain pecan pie.

The little friend I asked prayer for is doing pretty well. My husband went and bought a stuffed animal (a really cute monkey) and took it to the hospital to her. I found out that what she has is a bacterial infection that entered her bloodstream somehow weeks ago and settled into her hip joint and infected the fluid around the joint and part of the bone. They think it might have been after they went swimming in a creek that probably had a high bacterial content because of the drought we had. They think she will do just fine after the 4-6 week course of IV antibiotics. Thank you for your prayers on her behalf. They mean so much!

Hope you all have a wonderful summer's night....maybe take a walk, drop a handful of peanuts into an Orange Crush, look at the stars and have a long talk with a loved one. Goodnight!


July 07, 2006 - Msg 42376: Oh Hey, Millie, I want to try the chatroom again but don't remember how. I now have this high speed internet so maybe it will work...I'll try again.

Millie, I still can't thank you enough for that recipie! I'll let you know how my guest's like it! And also thank's for understanding about not wanting to fight. We should just try not to be sensitive, and I know ESPECIALLY me!

BWB, I have some question's :

1) Do you have the book "Barney Fife's Guide to Life Love and Self-Defense". Being such a big Barney fan, thought you might!

2) Whatever happened to Thelmaluwannabe? I thought she wanted to join the porch.

3) How many Andy Griffith Show book's to you have?

Well just wondering.

Deputy Warren Ferguson

July 08, 2006 - Msg 42382: Warren: I don't have any books, that's why I was asking you where to get them. I didn't know that you thought I had any. Sorry for the confusion.

Thelmalouwannabe lives up north, and when she wrote in, she was here visiting with me, and instead of staying with my parents, she stayed with me. Well, she was so curious in why I was on here constantly, so I encouraged her to read here, and write in. I don't know why she hasn't wrote in, but the next time I talk to her, I'll tell her to.


July 08, 2006 - Msg 42383: Hey, BWB, I'm sorry. I couldn't get on at first, so I installed tha mIRC thingy and I got on. Maybe Floyd can help when he gets back. Again, sorry, I didn't know that.

July 08, 2006 - Msg 42384: Glad y'all like the pie. Thanks.

July 08, 2006 - Msg 42385: BWB, I get mine on Amazon.Ca and Ebay. Your American though so try Amazon.Com

Hey to Hodie, "long time, no see"!

Feeling lousy today, I think I picked up my daughter's cold. I tried to avoid it but its hard to keep a 4 yr old from kissing you. She is just the sweetest little thing (most of the time). As she is growing up she is getting alot easier and more fun. Daddy brought her home a stuffed monkey yesterday and she named it Bingo. It slept with her and she has been carrying it around all day. So cute!

Warren, Millie and I had a very nice chat last night on Sarah's. It was a real pleasure to be able to talk to her like that. Millie is a very nice person and we like alot of the same things. We had a fun conversation about old movies that we like. I will try to chat some tonight if I feel up to it.

I am feeling much better today, thanks! You are all so kind to pray and be concerned. Must have been a short-lived virus.

I do have another prayer request, I'm afraid. We lost another dog today. Some of you might remember our Chocolate Lab, Belle (her picture is in Ro's photo album). She is the pup we found abandoned at the church 2 years ago. She had been living in my sister's home for the past year since we moved in with my folks. Anyway, my sister came home from church and found Belle dead. She was in the house and no explanation at all. The dog was healthy and playful when they left for church. My poor sister is heart-broken and its not easy on the kids. Belle was a great dog. We called her a "sack of love" because that's how she was. Hubby and Sean are out digging a grave for her on the property next to Jingles.

Prayers for you Millie. We are here for you.


July 09, 2006 - Msg 42463: Hi Boo!!!

So sad about the dog. I will pray for all of you.

Thanks for comforting me with my problems. I think that for me, the hardest part is seeing my parents try to do all that they do, and watching them run themselves until they can't get out of bed. No matter what we tell them, they won't listen.

Wanna talk a while???

only 30 minutes til I leave.

We can still talk, though.

Boo- so sorry about your loss. I know that a pet can be just like a member of the family. My prayers for you and yours.
anyone seen BUCKEYE/colt? I'm a little worried about him, as he does have a few health problems. My prayers continue for him and HOMEMAKER. Sure an glad that she checked in.
Looks like the porch is in good repair. Glad that it is keeping up ok.
Spot, MD did you see the race? I'm not into soccer, especially since the fans cant see to be civil a lot of the time.
Auh20, yeas i was hoping for that response! I hope his nephew makes it to governor here in AZ. For one thing, I thinks the border will be his top priority.
Our fires are now out. I sure hope our rainy season will do their job too.
Good Sabbath to you all.

July 09, 2006 - Msg 42466: SUPRISE, SUPRISE, SUPRISE Hey everyone its me SHAZAM, happy to say that after many weeks of overtime on my job I am back from New Orleans. It was such a inspiring thing helping those folks down there. They are really trying to get back to where they were but just when you think things are looking up, youre reminded of the devastation that was brought by Katrina last year. Please pray for our fellow citizens there to get back on their feet. And sorry I couldnt call the porch and see what was up but the desktop computers we had were being monitored. Hope all my freinds are still here and not gone to Mt. Pilot. I missed you all and I cant wait to hear whats been happening. If you remember me holler back.

Blessings to you and yours,

July 09, 2006 - Msg 42477: SHAZAM!! So good to hear from you again. I didn't know you had gone to New Orleans, didn't know what happened. God bless you for your service there.

Welcome home Lucy and Floyd!

Things have been a bit tough here. Sean had a good cry this evening over Belle but he isn't taking it as hard as he did Jingles, thankfully. We buried her right next to Jingles and will eventually grow a nice flowerbed over their graves.

Lucy, I wanted to ask your opinion about something. Sean will be off this Paxil in 2 days and he has been having some stomach trouble. The way he describes it I am thinking it is reflux. I give him Mylanta sometimes but I am wondering if there is a natural supplement that helps with heartburn. Do you happen to know?

Hope you all have a peaceful night's sleep.

Hope you are doing ok, Millie.

July 10, 2006 - Msg 42485: Morning porch. How's your Monday?

Boo, I am so sorry to hear about Belle. How sad is that? It is really hard to lose a pet. Prayers for your family Boo.

Millie, hope and pray all is well for you and your situation.

Spot, thanks for breakfast pal. Sounds good. I might have seconds...or thirds...or fourths.

Could I ask a prayer request? Our Granddaughter Mariah is having surgery this morning to repair a hernia she has had since birth. They wanted to wait till she was a little bigger but it popped out last week and then went back in by itself. But the Dr. want's to do it now. She is only 3 months old and not even 10 pounds yet. So we are worried. Thanks for your prayers. It is much appreciated.


July 10, 2006 - Msg 42486: Morning Porch folks, Hope all is well today. Prayers are with You,Millie and Asa. Spot thanks for breakfast.. good way to start Monday. Hello to all on the porch this Monday morning. Big Maude

MDC-I agree, it would be fantastic to see another Goldwater in office, especially one with a concern for border issues. On my end of the porch, border concerns are really growing; you know how those Canadians are you take your eyes off of them for one minute and there is no where to park at the mall.

Mavis-I checked out the site you posted. I looked around in the shout-out section, very nice.

Floyd & Lucy-I'd like to echo Rev's welcome back.

Millie & Homemaker - Praying for ya both.

fungirl-When was the last time fungirl stopped by? Awhile back there was a bit of a heated discussion with regard to Native Americans and I never felt good about how that turned out.
This is quite awhile back but I still think about it.

spot-Thanks for the Breakfast. I wish all dogs good organize a meal as well as you do.

God Bless,

Asa-Prayers for Mariah and your family. Hang tough big guy.


July 10, 2006 - Msg 42489: Good morning everyone! I hope that you all had a pleasant weekend.

ASA: Prayers for Mariah and your whole family. The umbilical hernia (I'm assuming that's what it is) is fairly common, and I'm sure that everything will go fine. Our daughter has it as well but we are waiting for the surgery. I'm sure that something like this is so much more difficult for the family when an infant is involved. But, remember the song, "He's got the littel bitty babies, in His hands."

Prayers also for MILLIE and BOO. So sad about your loss, BOO. Losing a member of the family is never easy, especially when the loss of another is so fresh. Prayers for you, too, HOMEMAKER.

So nice to have you back LUCY and FLOYD. Hey to you SHAZAM, it's been awhile.

Thanks for breakfast, SPOT, De-licious as usual.

MDC: That's JACK Eggbert, and he's no prize!

Hey also to MAVIS, HORATIO, TOM, BWB, DWF, COLT, GOOBER, MAYBERRY DEPUTY, BIG MAUDE, CHARLOTTE TUCKER, and anyone else lounging on the proch this morning. I think ROMEENA is due back today or tomorrow.

Six days and counting on the baby watch. How're you doing, AFD?

Will someone pass me another cup of coffee, please?


July 10, 2006 - Msg 42490: Oops! I forgot a big howdy to you, AUH2O, and to REV and IRISHTER, too.

Asa..we will be in much prayer for your little granddaughter.

Spot...as always...breakfast was goooood!

Millie....you keep believing and pressing forward! You have a lot of folks praying for you.

Boo...only time (and prayers) will help in that situation. Still praying.

Well I get to relax today. Praise the Lord!! Mrs Rev and I are going to just take it easy. Maybe go shop around the Portland area. We thought it would be nice and cool up here in the north but it's as hot here as it is down south during the day. And churches up here have no A/C so I am completely soaked by the end of the concert.
By the way, Mrs Rev and I will celebrate our 25th anniversary tomorrow. God is so good!

Will be checking in a little later. Jesus loves us all so much!
