If I remember correctly, Jinger was on her way to someone's birth and hit a deer. She just happened to be friends with a taxidermist and had the head mounted. She took this head to Loredo when they moved all her stuff there. She seemed happy to take her deer head.

At this point I think we need to pin a full description of the Rufus back story for everyone who missed the original thread.  All Hail Rufus.  

Oh, and jinger was driving to Spurgie's birth.

I wonder how the Duggars feel about the new home design show on TLC starring Nate Berkus  and his husband Jeremy Brent and featuring their baby daughter, Poppy.  In one promo for the show, there's a shot of Poppy getting a kiss from her two dads.

Absolutely. We need an official origin-myth for Our Savior of Roadkill. @Carm_88, you said you have a folklore degree?

At this point, they're lucky TLC even keeps them around.  I'm sure they're praying for Nate and his husband and grinning and bearing the fact that they're now part of the TLC family.  I don't think they're in a position to tell TLC that they don't want to be on the same network as those heathen, sinning gays.

They did a single episode of the Putnams this year.  We have a thread somewhere - perhaps QoS.  The family sounds bananas and the Dad a controlling ass.  Shit, Kate Plus Eight is coming back. That show needed mothballing years ago.  Poor Collin.

The only thing in that line up that tempts me is Trading Spaces - but only if they bring Hildi back to staple fake flowers to bathroom walls, super glue cardboard to ceilings, and spread hay in the bedrooms of people with allergies.  :laughing-jumpingpurple:

I remember one where they dumped sand in room to make it have a more realistic beach feel. Those shows were way more entertaining than the Duggars and Kate Plus 8.

OMG yes! With lots of "Lo" & "verily" & "thou" etc. And begats. Can we have some begats?
Also the 10 Commandments of Rufus.

Sigh. Putnams. That's just over an hour from here. There's been a crap ton of local coverage. I wish they'd shut up about it. Between that and the Keilens living 30 minutes away, this is turning into FUNDIE TERRITORY

I found the beginning of the Rufus story.  It's about half way down the page.   We had quite the flight of ideas and conspiracy theories here on FJ.

 

@singsingsing had the best posts in that thread.  And the conspiracy theory starts to heat up around page 12 for those who are skimming.

I've heard they're a little of both. They say they're just super close and love being together but I know a few people in that area who say they're fairly religious. I'm not entirely sure what their brand of religion is though.

Well, they also have been on the same channel as Long Island Medium (talking to spirits), Sister Wives (Mormons), Say Yes to the Dress (NIKE), and Jon & Kate Plus Eight (Jon DEFINITELY wasn't the headship in that family, divorce, fertility treatments technically aren't allowing God to decide your family), and Who Do You Think You Are? (quality programming). If they had moral issues with the channel they're on, they should have piped up a long time ago. But kiddults don't raise themselves

Many moons ago, on a chilly day just past the time of the harvest, a young lady anxiously prepared for the birth of a nephew, the first child of a beloved sister. Little did she know her life was about to change forever. She hopped into a magical chariot to take her to the dwelling to see the child. The night was dark and she could not see very well, she strained her eyes as not to stray from the path. Suddenly, she heard a thumping sound and exited the chariot. It was there she found a glowing buck, greviously injured and she began to cry. "Fear not." said the Buck "For I am Rufus, saviour of his world and though, my spirit may leave this earthly form, I shall always be a part of you." The girl continued to weep before moving closer to Rufus, she sat next to him, uncertain of what to do. Rufus said then in a booming voice “Rufus blesses you child and in the coming year, thou shall leave thy father’s house and move to the house of another. This man will be a preacher, thus you will spread the news of me, the bible of Rufus. Letting the world know that I am the protector. I shalt protect the message boards from trolls, bless the mods and grant them peace to deal with the many messes, and above all else, I am the only one who can Free Jinger.”  The girl listened and listened, feeling that much time had passed, before calling her family and telling them what had happened. They would not listen to what Rufus had told her but agreed to mount the head of the Great Buck. Rufus’ prophecies came to pass and that young girl has taken him with her, to the land of Texas, where she spreads the word of Rufus.

 

ETA: All in fun, not meant to make fun of anyone's beliefs. :) 

This totally made my day!  Love it!  :tw_grin:

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
