    glad to see that some are replacing fireworks with alternatives, although the illegal fireworks are rampant in socal despite police efforts to curb their use

    I celebrate all the creative alternatives to celebrating!

    I’ll be praying for your safety today. The Big Ben Lomond fire was close enough to me (you could see the glow and we were inundated. by smoke) to make me improve my evacuation options. Three of my co-workers lost their homes and had to move out of the area because they couldn’t afford to rebuild here.

    I’m not sure if it’s rights and responsibilities anymore. I think some people are just stupid!

    Linn = amen…. some people just cant think

  5. Michael says:

    “I think some people are just stupid!’

    I’ll say the amen…

  6. Miriam Wegemer says:

    we should ALL be praying for Michael

  7. Michael says:

    Thank you, Em.

    If you all could add my godson to your prayers…he’s having a mental health crisis and need a touch from the Lord.
    It’s a brutal time to be a young man…

    Yes, it’s still daylight for at least another hour, but some in the neighborhood are already testing out their mortars. I love mortars–I bought a bunch on my last excursion through the northern territories that sell gobs of them, but I use them sparingly and without being obnoxious. Tonight, I won’t be using them at all as my heeler/border collie is quite anxious with the explosions. I’ll be baby sitting her until all calms down.

    If hell breaks loose, I’m 45 minutes away–bring ’em all.

    Michael, praying that your preparations are only precautions, and can go unused.

    fil, your generous offer makes me smile.

    moderation is the middle ground that has been lost in this age of American extremism. I’ll try to practice some with my whiskey on ice. 😉

  12. Captain Kevin says:

    Linn, do you still live near Ben Lomond? Not sure why, but I was under the impression that you lived in the San Diego area.

  13. filistine says:

    Capt. Kev–my door is never locked, not even the whiskey cabinet. We raised seven kids so we’re used to crowds.

  14. Linn says:

    Captain Kevin,
    I live about 20 miles from Ben Lomond in the southern part of the San Francisco Bay Area. San Diego would be nice! But U’n very happy here.

  15. Michael says:


    That’s very kind of you…actually, it’s just who I’ve always known you to be.

  16. pslady says:

    I am praying for you & your family Michael…so many difficult things going on at one time! Also for God to keep your home safe 🙏🏻

  17. Michael says:


    Many thanks…it’s been intense.
    We made it through the night…I was worried for Liam, but he was just annoyed by all the noise and went to sleep. 🙂

  18. Captain Kevin says:

    Linn, that’s a nice area. It has been many years since I’ve been able to drive long distances, but I would often stop in Ben Lomond on my way to or from Oregon to eat and stay in one of the cabins at the Tyrollean Inn.
