The twisted logic of atheists...

It's funny how non-believers will latch on to something like this because they refuse to accept the idea of eternal punishment.  It is also funny how often they latch on to something the Pope says and twist it around.   The Pope did not in fact "reveal the answer", and is well aware of the concept of Heaven and hell.  I think he handled this the only way he could and was just being diplomatic because it was a child in a very public forum.  But being the greatest guy in the world doesn't gain you much credit in the afterlife without having accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior - and splashing your children with water doesn't do anything for them or you.  That is the problem with the Catholic religion...they offer blessings and atonement at the hands of mere men when only God can grant such favors through the death of his only Son.  I suspect that if the Pope was dealing with an adult in a private situation, he would suggest the following scriptures:  Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.  Mathew 10: 33   But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

Ben has a health issue...


I recently discovered that Ben is exhibiting signs of rectal prolapse - not uncommon in cattle.  My friend Terry Burger (Ben's godmother - she has known him since he was a pup) sent me some medicine.  Her husband Paul is a veterinarian and they are both well versed in large livestock care.  Never thought I would be applying Preperation H to a longhorn's butt hole.  She also sent some Panalog that I have to inject into his rectum with a large plastic syringe.  This should be interesting.  Ben is about to take trust to a whole new level.  I will spare you a photo of his infirmity,  but there might be a video coming soon...  78,85,53,0,W

cross county

Had a traveler camp at TFL Sunday night.  Tobias Foglia was looking for a rustic campground out my way and ended tenting it right behind my house.  He was pretty beat having just peddled 65 miles from Alpine.  The perfect overnight guest - he brought his own food, cookware, stove, and bedroom.  He has been cycling cross country since he left Boston last September...on his way to San Diego.  After his night here, he was planning on a couple of nights down in the national park before continuing his journey west.  89,97,56,0,B
