VISIT WITH "The Mayor" (Rus & his wife Julie)

Maybe someone at canteen can share these there? I know people "know him" from posting coffee there

AFPhys was to have joined us also but some "CAR ISSUES" got in the way big time

Between the normal "el crappo" here and the extensive tree down damage in yard & some travel, I have not been around too much on line .. always fun to come here and catch up.

My uncle celebrated his 91st birthday in NY & his children & grandchildren all decided to get together for holiday celbration in Charlotte area 500 miles away and NOT invite him (sweet?) They also were too busy for father's day. So I went to see him for a few days & celebrated his July 4th birthday with him. .

I truly do NOT understand how kids can do this to their parents.

He is mobile & older & frail but has always put his family so high in priority in his life. One of the sons who drove down with his wife & 2 dogs lives about 10 minutes away. Could have driven him OR gotten him on plane before he left. B-I-G Sigh.....

As the Mayor was only about an hour away got in a trip there & spent night & had fun catching up

Fusion Man
July 7, 2011

Yves Rossy accomplished something people have dreamed of since the ancient myth of Icarus. He has flown. Known as the “Fusion Man,” Rossy built a set of wings with an engine pack that uses his body as the fuselage of the aircraft, with the wings fused to the back of his heat-resistant suit. His first flight took place near Geneva, Switzerland, in 2004, and he has since had numerous successful flights.

The psalmist David longed to have wings so he could fly away. In a time when he was being pursued by enemies who were seeking to take his life, Israel’s king cried, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest” (Ps. 55:6).

Like David, when we’re facing pressure, mistreatment, hardship, or grief, we might wish we could sprout wings and fly away. But Jesus offers a better way. Rather than fleeing our struggles, He invites us to flee to Him. He said, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, . . . and you will find rest for your souls” (Matt. 11:28-29). Rather than wishing we could fly away and escape life’s problems, we can bring them to Him.

Escape cannot give us rest, but Jesus can.

O give me a spirit of peace, dear Lord,
Midst the storms and tempests that roll,
That I may find rest and quiet within,
A calm buried deep in my soul. —Dawe

God gives us strength to face our problems, not to flee from them.

Read: Psalm 55:1-8

So I said, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.” —Psalm 55:6
Bible in a year:
Job 34-35; Acts 15:1-21

To: The Mayor
When we have our heart, mind, eyes , soul and spirit, on our LORD and Savior, sustainer, our fortress, our refuge, the Eternal One, we can surrender it all to Him, knowing he is sovereign, merciful,filled with loving kindness, compassionate, and he loves us; so we can trust in his grace, will and might, knowing “all things work together for good to them that love God.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Romans 8:28

King James Version (KJV)

“28. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thank you, for today's, devotional, Mayor.

Traveling down the interstate and needing to use the bathroom, I stopped at a rest area and headed to the restrooms.

I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice from the ther stall saying: ‘Hi, how are you?’

I’m not the type to start a conversation in the restroom and I don’t know what got into me, but I answered, somewhat embarrassed, ‘Doin’ just fine.’

And the other person says: ‘So what are you up to?’

What kind of question is that? At that point, I’m thinking this is too bizarre so I say: ‘Uhhh, I’m like you, just traveling.’

At this point I am just trying to get out as fast as I can when I hear another question. ‘Can I come over?’

Ok, this question is just too weird for me but I figured I could just be polite and end the conversation. I tell them ‘No..I’m a little busy right now!’

Then I hear the person say nervously... ‘Listen, I’ll have to call you back. There’s an idiot in the other stall who keeps answering all my questions.

Dear Jane
Are you sure this drawing of a spider is the one I sent you? This spider has only seven legs and I do not feel I would have made such an elemenatary mistake when I drew it.

Dear David
Yes it is the same drawing. I copied and pasted it from the email you sent me on the 8th. David your account is still overdue by the amount of $233.95. Please make this payment as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely, Jane Giles

Subject: Re:Re: Who's spider is that?

Hello, I am back and have read through your emails and accept that despite missing a leg, that drawing of a spider may indeed be the one I sent you. I realize with hindsight that it is possible you rejected the drawing of a spider due to this obvious limb omission but did not point it out in an effort to avoid hurting my feelings. As such, I am sending you a revised drawing with the correct number of legs as full payment for any amount outstanding. I trust this will bring the matter to a conclusion.

Regards, David

Dear David
As I have stated, we do not accept drawings in leiu of money for accounts outstanding. We accept cheque, bank cheque, money order or cash. Please make a payment this week to avoid incurring any additional fees.

Yours sincerely, Jane Giles

I understand and will definitely make a payment this week if I remember. As you have not accepted my second drawing as payment, please return the drawing to me as soon as possible. It was silly of me to assume that I could provide you with something of completely no value whatsoever, waste your time and then attach such a large amount to it.

Regards, David.
