Tot's Talk

By Rebekah (Pearl) Anast

I overheard two little tots.

Discussing in great length

Just why their mamas spank them.

It made me pause and think.

“My mommy spanks me when she’s mad,â€

I heard a young voice say,

“It makes her angry when I’m bad

And when I disobey.â€

Pride was in the youngster’s voice;

Rebellion !†was his cry.

I glanced then at the other boy

And heard his meek reply:

My mommy spanks me when she’s glad

To train me to be good

So I’ll grow up to be like Dad

And do the things I should.â€

Tis not the rod that molds the heart

And sweeps the soul of sin.

Tis holiness in Mom and Dad,

That’s where it all begins.

If children can learn from observation, what is the need of spanking them? Also, there is no reason for her to assume that the first child in the poem was rebellious or full of pride. The second boy sounds like he has been well broken down

Here is another poem of hers entitled Two Fathers

By Rebekah (Pearl) Anast

Once there were two fathers

In houses side by side.

Each had a little boy

The apple of his eye.

One raised his son in love and care

And made him to obey.â€

He taught him from the Bible,

And each night they knelt to pray.

The other father loved his son

But had no time to spare.

And so he left his little boy

In some one else’s care.

Then when each boy became a man,

All who saw him did know,

One was raised with father’s care,

But the other grew alone.

The one became a drunkard.

He cheated and he lied.

And the other that honored God

Met an accident and died.

And so the godly father grieved,

His beloved son was gone.

And yet I wonder, of the two,

Which father lost his son?

For those who don't know, her husband quit his job to remain home so that he could study the bible. She does not work either. Her own father did something similar.

She was supposed to drop another kid this summer. But no news. 7x7 is just about dead.

They went dead when we started discussing them on the old forum. I suspect that 7xsunday is still operating but under a different name.

Obviously these poems are really bad. But they're just good enough to make me wonder whether Rebekah could actually have had some literary talent if she had had the opportunity to go to school, hone her craft, and read real poems by good poets.

The only thing that has ever prompted me to punctuate a point on my childrens' bottoms with a swat has been anger, not gladness. I've regretted every single time I've done it, few though they may be. And, all it ever did was escalte a situation from bad to worse, with a side order of guilt on my part. The thought of writing an ode to corporal punishment???? These people...these people...these people suck.

      Guess I should update again? Frieda (Kiki, we renamed her) is here since the end of February 2021. She came with a bunch of problems, but is the best dog ever and is doing better every day. But we do now know how a dog with ptsd looks like. For real, not joking. If she is triggered during the day, she wakes up screaming at night. Not like dogs dream, but literally screaming. Other than that she went with us on countless trips, loves hiking and even cable cars. She is one heck of a fearless dog in situations who do not remind her of her old life. 
      My Grandpa passed away last May and I'm still grieving a lot. After sharing a house with my grandparents for over 30 years it is just horrible to lose one of them. Even though it was his decision and he got to go like he wanted. At home, in his bed during the night without doctors. He would have need more care and he did not want more care. So after turning 90 he decided to let go and became weaker and weaker. 
      In other news my dad stops working for good on April 1st. Retirement time. Keep my Mum and myself in your prayers. We really do not want him at home all the time. Haha!

      When it's a mix of religion and violent crime, I post the thread in the Quiverfull of True Crime section.

      I don't always make good decisions for myself due to severe depression but I did today actively decide not to do something that might have been detrimental for me and am very proud of myself.

      Well, this is weird. At some point, recently, I broke my wrist. I had to get a Dexa-scan today (put it off for years) and along with some bone loss, damn I had it a few minutes ago… the results said, “Fracture risk is moderate, and the patient has a significant wrist fracture. Treatment is advised.”  my left wrist aches a little but not near as much as my back, feet, knees or fingers, damn RA. I have no idea how it happened. I haven’t fallen in 2 years, haven’t banged or bumped…  the dr will call tomorrow and we’ll get  this straightened out.

      I got my stickers today after renewing my vehicle registration. 
      Just reminded me again how different Minnesota is from Iowa.  Since I didn't register my vehicle in January last year, I got a sticker for the month since all MN plates are made with JAN printed in the lower left hand corner.  They also require people to put stickers on both the front and back plates, as opposed to Iowa that just want's the single sticker on the rear plate.
      Oh well, considering how MN is trying to move into the 2020s while Iowa is trying to lurch the fuck back to the 1840s, the type and number of license plate stickers is really a minor thing.
