    Hello!

    yep, just us chickens . . .pluck,pluck, pluck . . . . . .
  6. Some thoughts: Callousness - can remember different situations over the years (~77-94) where the prevailing attitude toward was believe "the word" regardless of the situation. If people were having hard times, they needed to "believe," but that was never really well defined - particularly in my own mind. Reading posts along this topic got me thinking how we'd tell people to believe the word, and usually it meant whatever the "collaterals" said, reading the collaterals was a 'convenient' way of 'researching the scriptures' to find out if those things were so. In retrospect, i can reca
  7. Dang, that brings back memories. I probably have a VCR tape somewhere. Funny thing, while i've had the tape for many years, i never watched it. Can someone help confirm my memory on this . . was there a live production of AOS in early 1985 at HQ - maybe February or March? Might have been the first live production? I recall traveling to HQ in early '85 with my wow family for some big doo - maybe was AOS. -per.
  8. there 'may be' a 'bob h' on FB . . . - from rye ny, now in NJ
  9. I generally remember VPW's reply when asked what he thought of the current President (at the time it was Carter) talking about being a Christian. He smiled and said, and i don't remember verbatim, but it was along the lines that the President talked about being a Christian merely to get votes. I think that statement colored my views for the next election when Reagan came in. This was at an 'ambassador one' weekend fly-in in 1978. One of the 'guests' had asked the question while we were visiting in the Wierwille home. I wasn't yet of voting age, but I kind of logged it into my thinking.
  10. It's nice to enjoy events and living life without ulterior motivations/expectations imposed upon oneself.
  11. Sometimes i like double or in this case a quadruple post - i need the repetition to remember it!!
  12. The subject occasionally does come up - as in what the heck brought you to this part of the country - usually at the office, as opposed to away from the office where the question rarely comes up - the area is so very transient. I'm usually not evasive about it - it doesn't matter so much to me to tell people - but I don't tell just anyone the whole story. Sometimes, I'll just reply that it's a long story and offer to tell them about it sometime over a beer or two. Sometimes I'll say I was involved in a ministry outreach program that gave me the opportunity to move around a little. The
  13. On Google Earth, you can see a large W in the hills located south of the eastern end of the airport runway.
  14. On 9/11 I had an early morning flight from DC (Reagan National Arpt.) to Cincinnati, OH. I can remember my cabbie was about 30 minutes late picking me up, but made it to the airport in plenty of time. Landed in Cincy & arrived at my conference location sometime around 8:30 am. While waiting with others at the conference location, chatting and sipping coffee, the confernence coordinators (with a sense of seriousness) called everyone inside to watch some developing news on the tv. For the next hour or so we all sat there transfixed/dazed, as hell broke loose in the NYC, Washington, DC,
  15. Hi Cathy! I trust all is well with you? I, too, was a WOW in Phoenix AZ that year, "stationed" in Sunnyslope. I remember mr. cox . . . he was in Joanie's family, right? - or am I mixing up my interim corps leadership? As I recall he worked for jack in the box, just like I did, but at a different "store." You were in same familiy as Willie and, darn, I can't remember the name of the coord, cept I think he had a goatee and wire rims. You might remember me, I was in John's family - with "Robski" and Jim. ---------------- Per
