“Hey, hon, we need to talk!” Harmless statement but whenever Bob would hear those words spoken by Yvonne he would have a war-time military expression – ” Incoming!

“Aw, forget it,” Yvonne said, as she walked out of the room, leaving Bob standing there rather bewildered and not sure what just happened.

As the song says, “It is the most wonderful time of the year” and it is as we celebrate the birth of our savior Jesus.. read more →

“It seems you do not want to talk to me anymore. What is happening? I cannot take this silence much longer.” As I spoke my voice went up one octave. Bob responded with, “Okay, I will tell you but do not interrupt me.” Of course that did not last long as I interrupted him to.. read more →

Regarding these special summer newsletters we receive the most thank-yous each year, so we are continuing this again this summer. A few will be repeats from previous newsletters, but most.. read more →

You have heard it said that imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Hmmmm. I’m not so sure that is always true. Case in point. I, Bob, remember an incident many years ago when our son Robert was a little boy (then known as Bobby) and he was riding along with me as I did.. read more →

First of all, thank you again for your response to the initial Prostitute Prayer Request emailing that my wife Yvonne sent out a while back. Hundreds of responses with many people praying for the women listed in the four legal brothels in Nevada. Legal? Hmmmm. The Bible has a different viewpoint.   Keep praying. Don’t.. read more →
