From My Idaho Buddy

A bit "politically UNcorrect", but that's what is worth sharing:

"The way I see it you have a few problems interfering with getting a new identification:

  • 1) You’re not aware of breaking any laws
  • 2) You’re Caucasian
  • 3) You’re male
  • 4) You speak English rather fluently albeit with a modified Texas slant from living in so many foreign, white dominated states
  • 5) You’re still one of those fanatical, crazy, Baptists who only believe in one GOD
  • 6) You’re an anti-abortion activist

Now you can’t change the first two and at you advanced age, I’m not sure it would be worth your becoming ‘Jeannette’. Of course the last three could be overcome if you were willing to submit to a ‘social reeducation’ (or is it a social reduction?) program! Have blessed day! And as my miniature Australian Shepherd would say, “If ever you’re troubled, it will vanish like a bubble if you’ll only take the trouble just to throw a ball for me. (Or just give me a belly rub!)”

The Truth Hurts!  If I were posting on Facebook today, I can't think of a better thing to say but what has already been said by Apostle Paul in Ephesians 4:15:

Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.

And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.
