So a little while ago I was in Kroger...and in the Easter Stuffed animals section I saw this bunny.

And I tried to resist but it was too damn adorable.

Plus it made me think of @Curious for some reason.

ADORABLE!  The easter section is death for me.  My husband refuses to even take me by there ;)

      I'm so disappointed there's no verdict yet!

      I thought the same thing when everyone said "they can make their own calendar" but I'm glad you said it first haha. I was like, you  guys can just  make a calendar that goes back almost 3 years???

      I think I'm in the minority, but I'm 99% sure Josh will be convicted. It is a combination of following the thoroughness of the case and a gut feeling. That "gut feeling" hasn't failed me yet-- but I'm still crossing my fingers that I'm not jinxing it.

      It’s not that big of a deal if you work backward from the current week in a grid. But I’m from paper and pencil generation so have made plenty of monthly calendars…I mean, it’s tedious, but it’s not like it’s impossible or particularly hard. 

      Thiugh I’m not sure my astonishing old school calendar skills would have been what we really wanted on the jury, my eyes glazed over with all the tech talk. 😂

      Thanks to you both, and to all who agreed under your posts. It has been a very rough week (plus). I still have a few mild symptoms, and am incredibly tired and weak.

      But the computer is behaving, so I think I can finish up Gary's 10/29 nonsense. Luke 15:9:

      KJV: And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.
      BGV: And when she was had found it, she called her friends her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the pieces - the piece which I had lost.

      Jesus is calling us to rejoice.

      Basic preacher ranting and screaming follows - lots of -ah at the ends of phrases and words. Gary is into it - may be his mood, enhanced by "Thank you Jesus" man and the need to keep warm.

      "Go to Romans chapter eleven, real quick-lahk."

      Romans 11:28, KJV: As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes.
      BGV: As concerning the gospel, they are th'enemies for your sake. But as touching the elect, they are become - they - look at verses 29, ah got the wrong thing written down."

      OK, "verses 29."

      KJV:  For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
      BGV:  For the gift and calling of God.  Are without repentance.

      "God's callin' for us to ripent."

      That's what you got out of that verse, eh, Gary?

      While screaming about how he can't do anything without Jesus, Gary ends with a triumphant "Ah need to ripent - of mah - unwickedness amen!"

      The rest is a barrage of Garyslogans.

      2 Corinthians 6:2, KJV: (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
      BGV: (For he. Said, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I susCURed thee: behold, NOW is accepted time; behold, NOW is the day - of salvation.)

      "Listen, ev'body just today - ah've already told ya three requests today of people that have DAHED, t'pray fer their families listen hey an' ah'm onna say somethin' to ya, now these people that dahed, no ah don't know how that young lady was - uh uh Brother Ernie's family, but that prob'ly wasn't that old of a person, butchu know what? You don't haveta be old t'dah?"

      Gary zooms through a list of lots of ages at which it is possible "t'dah." Then he turns on the spigot and spews some auto-pilot crap about today being the day to get saved.

      Philippians 3:14, KJV:  I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
      BGV:  I press toward the mark. Of the prahhhhze. Of the high calling. Of God  - in Chrise Jesus.

      "Amanna tellya somethin' else He's callin' - it's a hah callin'."


      While screaming about the high calling, Gary gets on the subject of preachers that get too big for their britches. He does his usual "not gonna say the name/town/state" pretending not to gossip routine, then says "A preacher of a Baptist church  was put in jail yesterday for being abusive to his family. Know what he done? He got too big for his britches."


      It's a holy calling.

      "Today ah posted on Facebook an' you kin go lookit mah page, an ah put four or fahve things with P words, an' one of 'em was prayin', preachin', peculiar livin' . . . you remember the other two?"

      Becky does not. Try John Shrader, Gary.

      I don't know where that was, Gary, but it wasn't on your Facebook page, or the Hawkins Family Ministries Facebook page, on 10/29. Do you have another Facebook account?

      Anyway, that's what's wrong with America. And he screams on for a while.

      Hebrews 3:1, KJV:  Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
      BGV:  Wherefore, holy brethren. PARtakers of the holy calling, consider the Apostles and the High Priests of our profession, of Christ Jesus;

      "How about a callin' of bein' partakers - of the Heavenly home?"

      Gary screams about Heaven, making sure they know that he told his friend in Texas that his wife, who just died, is "kickin' up gold dust."


      "An' here's the part ah wanna git out of it - the calling of Jesus being faithful."

      Gary also rattles of his beloved "except you be reptobate" verse, and the captions do this:



      He goes on, "You know He said He was gonna turn 'em over to a reptobate mind one day?"
