204th post

The road to our Grandparent Clines.

Father drove with the windows down if it was summer and the windows 

rolled up and the car heater on if it was winter and cold outside. I don't

believe that most people had car air conditioners in those days and I

believe they were a lot more healthy because of that (something akin

to Legionaire's Disease). The radio and air conditioner in the 1986 Honda

Accord do not work a I'm not going to get them fixed. I like the fresh air,

and driving 80 to 90 miles per hour like I did in May of this year in 

returning from the wastelands of southern Nevada (Las Vegas) thru 

Omaha and to here in Ohio. I won't fix the radio or replace it because the

person talking or singing is someone I cannot talk back to and 

I realized some years ago that all my talking for all those years of living 

was mostly to myself....

Tonight.... My Uncle Jack and Uncle Ray....

"A Kansas man robbed a bank last week in order to go to jail and avoid 

his wife, court documents showed.

Lawrence John Ripple, 70, told his wife following a fight on Friday 

that "he'd rather be in jail than at home."

After writing a note stating that he had a gun and wanted money, 

Ripple walked to a bank in Kansas City, Kansas, and handed it to 

the teller.

The teller gave him nearly $3,000. Instead of making a hasty 

getaway from the Brotherhood Bank and Trust branch, Ripple took 

a seat in the lobby and admitted to a security guard that he was 

the suspect. He was taken into custody.

The money was returned to the bank. The cause of Ripple's fight 

with his wife was not detailed in the court documents and no lawyer 

was listed for him.

Ripple was no longer at the Wyandotte County Detention Center 

in Kansas City, Kansas, on Wednesday, according to the center's 

website. A spokesman for the Wyandotte County Sheriff's office said 

he was moved to a federal facility in Leavenworth, Kansas. Efforts 

to reach Ripple's wife were not immediately successful."

My opinon: Just like I said the other day in a story about the killings in

Chicago, get out town and find a peaceful place to stay.

"Oklahoma Sept. 3 earthquake was strongest recorded in state....  

 (The) 5.6 earthquake struck near the north-central Oklahoma town....  

An earthquake in Oklahoma on Sept. 3 was the strongest on record in the 

state and had a magnitude of 5.8, the U.S. Geological Survey said on 

Wednesday. The quake, felt in an area stretching from Texas to South 

Dakota, hit near the northern Oklahoma town of Pawnee. It fueled growing 

concerns about seismic activity linked to a decade-long boom in oil and 

gas production after advances in hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling.

The earthquake prompted the state's oil and gas regulator, the Oklahoma 

Corporation Commission, to order 37 disposal wells shut in a 

725-square-mile (1,878-sq-km) area around Pawnee. There were no major 

injuries or damage to structures reported."

Mother Teresa

Note: some of the events printed in this article have already been 

completed, but I would still like to follow the life history of Mother Teresa.

"We consider her to be a wonderful nun and so on and so forth. She was an  

extraordinary human being. She came down from that beautiful place where 

she was living in almost luxury at the high school in Calcutta. She left to serve

the poorest among the poor but to serve everybody else."

Franco said he spent 26 years in Vatican City and said mass every Saturday  

at 6:30 p.m. Whenever Mother Teresa was in town, she would attend his mass.

"She would be in the back of the chapel kneeling down until the end," he said.

"After the prayers she would come to the sacristy to get a blessing but also to 

chat a little bit about my homilies."

Quote of the Day

"A Saint thinks with their heart and not with their brain."

Forrest Caricofe

Google: About 153,000,000 results (0.86 seconds) 

No results found for "A Saint thinks with their heart and not with their brain.".

I'm going to again change the name of this garden section from "In the Garden

with Forrest Caricofe" to "In the Flower Garden with Forrest Caricofe."

I have a lot of other things to do today, so I'll be lucky to get the morning 

watering done...
