    Re: Reading posts here

    Ever so often, I come here and would like to read the latest/greatest/pertaining to the subject post but am, again, discouraged by the # of responses.

    Like this one:

    http://www.naznet.com/community/show...thwest-Indiana

    Good grief! 102 replies? I'm not even going to go there!

    There's greater than a 100% chance (is that possible?) that the "conversation" has drifted FAR FAR away from what Rich originally intended, I betcha.

    Am I right?

    Were items such as maybe driving through NW Indiana, with a van-load of snotty nosed kids mentioned, yet?

    How about someone's brother-in-law's 5th cousin, on his mother's side of the family, bought a poodle in Gary, IN.

    OH the richness of NazNet. It's almost like our family gatherings.

    OK, Nelson, you might be right. And I might be counted among the guilty parties.

    But, really. Northwest Indiana needed a new DS. Now they have one.

    What sort of conversation is that? Ten posts max and it's all over.

    (If you're curious as to who was elected you can go to NCN and read the facts without dealing with the NazNet tangents.)

    Nelson, think about it.

    Haven't you ever started a conversation with a friend and changed subjects several times? One thing reminds you of another, so you talk about that, and so on, and so on, and so on.

    Well, that's kind of how it is here. Normal conversations that veer off the original subject from time to time....

    For example.............

    May 5th, eh? And two days later is our son's BD.

    Good grief! I'm not old enough to have a three kids in their 50's.

    Am I?



    Did I mention my mother-in-law's name was MAY Brown.

    No middle name - just May Brown.

    How simple is that, eh?

    Speaking of church dinners - we pastored one church where there was a tendency for people to bring jello. Trying to get a little broader assortment, I asked one time for people to bring a green salad. They did - green jello.

    See, Nelson? This is how "NORMAL" conversations go -- why should NazNet be any different?

    My sister-in-law and I laugh about how we can talk about 3 different subjects in the same conversation and never be confused about which subject our comments refer to when we make them -- our husbands laugh at us......

    So now, about that moon.......if anyone DOES capture a beautiful photo of it, make sure you post it to the Photography Board!!!! We'll be waiting on May 6th for all of your lovely photos!!! I hope mine is among them -- but we shall see.....

    And Cynthia, I echo Marsha's words -- we will be praying for your mother.....

    Maybe next year when we're reminiscing about how much friendlier NazNet used to be before a bunch of quarrelsome newbies showed up after General Assembly we will include something about how back in the old days Nelson would start a thread and we would all jump in and just enjoy each other's company.

    (May as well enjoy the "good old days" when they are still here, right?)

    Speaking of Brown (as in May Brown - my godly gone to be with Jesus Mother-in-Law) 4 of our 5 previous autos were brown.

    Well, the mfg called them Desert Sand.

    NOT any more

    Our newest auto is bright red.

    Similar, probably to strawberry jello.

    Did I mention that we finally replaced our 20-year-old van? If a person can love a car, I loved that van....it still runs quite nicely and still looks good after all these years -- but it was time to change. What did we replace it with, you ask? Why, another Dodge Grand Caravan, of course!!

    We haven't found a new home for the old van yet, but we're working on it. I want to take it on a good long drive before we do. I've never FIT a car like this one. After 20 years, I still enjoy driving it more than any other car!!! Strange.

    Oh well, maybe I'll grow to love the new one like I did the old one.......

    Now, what were we talking about?????

    Thanks so much Marsha. She is a trooper but this stay has been particularly difficult due to her recent blindness. Thankfully, there is reason to be optimistic that she will be able to see again sometime near Christmas.

    Nelson, perhaps it could have been May Be Brown or Hans Ome DeVenter. Dana did you name your old van and what is the name of your new van. Like pets vehicles should have names also, members of the family?

    Dennis, there was the farewell from one church for the Franklins where every dish brought was potatoe salad and that was in Oregon before our move to South Dakota in 1940.

    Dana, you about another Dodge?
    I used to HATE dodgeball when a kid...especially when Richard threw those wicked tennis balls at me..they really HURT.
    I've often wondered why we always called him by his given name and not a nickname.
    My nickname used to be "Curly." But it's been years.
    I wonder why.

    Nelson...speaking of dodgeball...when I was in elementary school my friends and I would make sure the ball hit us at the beginning of the game. Then, we would sit under the big pine trees and play. We would pretend the roots were the castle and little sticks were the people. Do kids play with sticks anymore? http://www.waldorftoday.com/2011/12/...-jonathan-liu/

    Funny you should ask -- her name was Baby Blue (she is metallic blue in color). I'll have to think about a name for the new one -- right now it just "the replacement." We aren't quite friends yet!!! ha ha

    Ah, but I do love my wife and I also like my old car, from Oct 1986. Don't really know of course, but my guess is it must be one of the oldest owned by a NazNetter and used for regular driving.

With long tubes such as those, one could stay far away from his or her victim, often sneaking up behind them to put the end of the tube close to their ear and say, "whoo-whoo!"

    Of course, "whoo-whoo-ing" could lead to whacking, but that was only a secondary activity, particularly since, except for at Christmas, Whoo-Whoos tended to roll off the production line singularly and it takes two or more Tubes for a good whacking session. One Tube, however, is actually best for enjoying the fun of "whoo-whoo-ing". The victim has to wrestle your "Whoo-Whoo" away from you in order to retaliate, generally with their own "WHOO-WHOO to you too!"

    You might be the holder of that record, Hans. We just put our 1992 Caravan out of commission. I thought THAT would be the oldest -- but yours beats that one!! I'm impressed!!! (we love old cars at our house!!)

    PS: "whoo-whoo" has the "w" sound of "whack" rather than "who"

    We did that to Ebony when she was a puppy -- you should have seen her take off to get away from that "whoo-whoo" -- totally freaked her out!!! ha ha

    >>> We just put our 1992 Caravan out of commission.

    Does the COTN still have Caravan?

    We moved from MI to IL in 1992.

    I wonder when Dave McClung got his commission.

    When we lived in Nacogdoches, I transported a preschool Caravan project made with cardboard tubes and empty jello boxes in my beige Caravan.

    Actually, the dirt as a toy was good. Remember liking to sculpt the sand at the beach.

    If I was at home I think I could actually produce a picture. I loved that preschool Caravan class.
