Two Images for Today–One Sad, One Funny

Backpack shield

At backpackshield they sell a particular backpack so that you won’t have to worry about your kids at school. Unbelievably sad that the need for such an item would even be contemplated.

Ipod & toilet roll holder

At you will find this absolutely indispensable item. Sometime back I wrote of the of the role of the telephone in society as having changed drastically since my childhood years –from one simple black instrument, to today, when almost every American family has phones scattered everywhere. In this post, I mentioned my friends who have a phone in their bathroom, and of my being surprised when I visited the place. Now here’s a lovely place for your Ipod.

I’m doing my bit for the economy today. Surely you’ll want to order one of these items.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 83 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 63 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

To add to the last post:
What do we expect when all the videos and games that the kids watch and play are “shoot em up and kill these guys”?


A few extra thoughts I had in light of the school shootings. . .

What do we expect when we tell kids day in and day out that they have to determine their own values and follow whatever their heart tells them? What do we expect when there are no absolute truths or absolute matters of right and wrong? What do we expect when God and his teachings are ignored and ridiculed in the media?


Meanwhile, our society fights against all the measures that would reduce the number of school shootings, such as teaching kids morality, responsibility, and respect. What about arming at least some of the teachers, so that they could stop a shooter and deter others from even trying it? What about insisting that troubled and mentally ill kids get the help that they need before they go off the deep end?


Carol- No, you sharp-eyed smart lady, I didn’t notice the misspelled word. There have been times for sure when I needed a piece of mine back. 🙂

It’s just incredible to me that a discussion of such a backpack is logical. We cannot afford to become paranoid, but we do need to be ever vigilant–especially concerning our children.
