Title is from @JemimaPuddle-Duck and is in honor of sons moving away from the borg collective and potentially setting up their own rules and having families who may dress to suit themselves 6 3/4 days of the week.

I will never forget how one FJer figured out who Elissa was by the afternoon of the day they announced she and Joe were married!  And with nothing more than some pictures and a first name to go on.

I always think my cat looks like he’s wearing a vest. In honor of the vest titles, I shamelessly give you a picture of the reason I woke up at 5:30 this morning.

@Bethy To answer your question in the closed thread...  Yes, in the link I provided, Chelsy is pregnant and in a blue dress.  They are towards the beginning of the video.

I think Chelsy just gave birth. (It takes a while to not look pregnant any more but she’s not currently pregnant. I think)

And it's wonderful!

The way the post is written implies that Joseph and Elissa still live in Kansas and just attend a church in Kansas City. I can always count on FJ sleuths to find out that Joseph’s house has sold! Obviously I mean that FJ sleuths do other stuff, too. Just that it would never have occurred to me to look that kind of stuff up.

I dont know if I am imagining things now but have they removed mention of John and Chelsy's church off of the titus 2 blog? I thought it said J and C went to church in somewhere like ?Platte City but now I can't see that either in the blog or comments.

Maybe they don't like us weirdos taking such an interest in what they do and to be fair 🤣 maybe they have a point.  They are so interesting because of all the secrecy and drama over mundane things though!

John and Chelsy going to a non denominational church is shocking. I never would have expected it. I know Chelsy has been exposed to a wide variety of churches while touring with the Bontrager Family Singers and John probably saw a few different church types when the Maxwells were on the road, but my best case scenario for them was Chelsy insisting on a non Elderly focused  IFB church with a real pastor and congregation.

So, they did remove the sentence about John & Chelsy going to church in Platte City. I bet John requested it. Those reversal boys seem to value their privacy & don’t want to be blog fodder. Good for them. As much as I am nosy & would like to see what they’re up to, I am glad they keep themselves separate from Steve’s agenda & carefully constructed fabrications.

I was thinking about Stevehova and Teri getting lost twice up in the mountains, I imagine it happened something like this.  

Steve takes a wrong turn.

Teri knows it's wrong, but can't contradict her husband, so says nothing and waits for him  to realize what is going on.  Each step she takes is agony, the farther they go, the more they have to backtrack and her back is already hurting at the thought.  

Steve takes another wrong turn, Teri is frantic in her head, but again, cannot suggest or remind or even bitch at him because he is the man and therefore always right.  She now begins praying for a Saviour who will come forward and realize that these two OLD people should not be on this route, and her prayers are answered, with the gentleman who tells them how far these steps climb.  Of course, since the fellow traveller is a MALE, Steve can save face and announces that Teri looks a little wore out and how about they just head to the car.  Her prayers are heard, God has saved them once again.  Steve is now the hero because he must really care about her to not want her to have any more pain.  Thank God for such a husband.

Not sure.  There's no newborn in the video.  It's just the three of them at church.

John & Chelsy are at the Open Door church.  They're on the video at the church's website.

My point was a statement was made on the blog, then removed less than a day later. It isn’t about the church & I make no claim on knowing anything other than that-the blog post was changed. In truth they could go to church in Tim Buk Too & it wouldn’t change the fact if was mentioned, then removed.

Does anyone one have a like to Joe's house that sold on realtor.com? I don't know the address to search, but would love to see the pictures.

Here you go.  According to Zillow, it sold last month.  It looks like they had the brother and sister in bunk beds.  Maybe they needed more bedrooms  https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/2300-S-17th-Ter_Leavenworth_KS_66048_M84989-81821

@Lady Grass Lake, one time almost 40 years ago, some of us band kids went down from our hometown near the mountains to Dreher High in Columbia to the either the Solo and Ensemble Festival or Allstate Band auditions.  (Cant's recall which now.)  Anyway on the way home, our chaperone band parent took the exit for I-26 East towards Charleston which was not the way we needed to go and in fact, was the opposite way.  If we'd not turned, then we'd have merged onto I-26 West easy-peasy.  It took me a few minutes to get my nerve to tell the adult that we needed to turn around.

It’s odd to me that people who are so convinced that they live perfectly in the name of Jesus and according to His holy word, the Bible, so often times seem to church shop. To me that behavior denotes an uncertainty. My mom, an evil Catholic, has been attending the same church for the last 80 years, only changing once in her life d/t her parents’ job transfers when she was quite young. 
It’s pretty bold and narcissistic to preach your way and belief system when you seem rather lost yourself.

Near the bottom of that realtor.com listing, it had pictures of the house from the last time that it was for sale.  Such a huge improvement.  It would be interesting to know how much he spent in materials for the update, and therefore how much profit he made.  I am assuming that most of the labor was free family labor.  Regardless, it appears to have been well done.

Teri's hiking post today was intriguing.  I recently saw a movie on TV called Everest (the one from 2015 with Josh Brolin).  I thought about that movie while reading the blog.  Too bad they only go to CO to hike/climb....  though Everest is in a category of its own, some of the younger Maxwells might enjoy expanding their horizons and climbing more difficult mountains in new locations.

I don't think people like that seem lost as much as just totally full of hubris to think of all the millions of biblical interpretations in the world you're the only one who got it right and have to shop so much to find others to agree with you.

My mom was a bad fundy-lite in her philosophy which was that there are many, many paths to Heaven and people need to find the one that's right for them and not judge others for believing differently.

I don’t know, those pictures look like furniture from a staging company. There is absolutely nothing personal in those pictures at all.

Agree.

Do you think they'd already moved by the time the pictures were taken?  The place doesn't looked lived in at all.

I don't recall seeing any Jesus signs, crosses or any of Mary's homemade lettered signs.  They must have moved.

      I've somehow invested in this year's Miss Universe pageant. After watching the prelims my favorites are: 
      1. Jamaica (naturally lol but she's doing well)
      2. Haiti (love her energy) 
      3. Great Britain 
      4. Bahamas 
      5. Canada (a beauty! absolutely stunning!)
      6. Japan (adorable) 
      7. Cameroon (also adorable w/ an amazing costume) 
      8. Myanmar (seems sweet)
      9. Vietnam 
      10. Thailand 
      11. USA (I'm rooting for everybody black lol) 
      Not a fan of these but I think they'll place: South Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Peru, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Dom Rep. 
      If they make Zozi (the current Ms. Universe) give the crown to a white girl from Pretoria, I will scream.

      Aren't I too old to forget to eat lunch?  
      So now....do eat a late salad and be cranky before bed because I want dinner and it's too late to eat or....do I tough out the afternoon cranky at my desk and eat dinner?  
      The dilemma is real.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.

      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.
