A Pistol With One Shot

Ecstatically shooting everything in sight using my beloved Nikon D3100 with AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6G VR kit lens and AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 G prime lens.

Also capturing outrageous beauty left and right with my Nikon D7000 blissfully married to my Nikkor 85mm f/1.4D AF prime glass. Don't be jeal.

And then there was the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f:3.5-5.6G ED VR II zoom. We're done here.

REMEMBRANCE

When I am gone

Please remember me

 As a heartfelt laugh,

 As a tenderness.

 Hold fast to the image of me

When my soul was on fire,

The light of love shining

Through my eyes.

Remember me when I was singing

And seemed to know my way.

Remember always

When we were together

And time stood still.

Remember most not what I did,

Or who I was;

Oh please remember me

For what I always desired to be:

A smile on the face of God.

You Want To Find This
The Promise Of Redemption

Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;

But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I BELIEVED, AND THEREFORE HAVE I SPOKEN; we also believe, and therefore speak;

Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.

For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

II Corinthians 4

Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it, have never known it again.

The pirate weighs in

I don't know whether he is lying or she is telling the truth, or the other way around.

That's because it's impossible to tell.

What she says happened, if it happened at all, happened thirty-six years ago.

She thinks. Because she can't really remember when it is alleged to have happened.

As well, she can't remember where she really was or whom she was really with.

She told no one. Not her parents, not her best friend, not the homeowner, not her fellow partygoers, not the police, not even the dog catcher.

This is all we know: At the opportune moment, this woman's head popped up and she came forward full of accusations involving a nominee for the highest court in the land.

(President Donald Trump will seat at least one more Supreme Court justice -- maybe two, and perhaps even three -- during his two terms in office. Elections have consequences. Deal with it).

Never mind that if it happened at all, it took place at the dawn of the Reagan administration.

And that the nominee in question has been on the Federal bench for twelve years and has been vetted by the FBI not one, not two, not three, but six times.

Senator Flake says Brett Kavanaugh was "too angry" during his "interview" on Friday. 

Flake was subsequently accosted at the door of an elevator by two bellowing, haranguing feminazi harpies who, he contends, didn't do a thing to change his mind about moving for a swift vote on Mr. Kavanaugh.

Mr. Flake is flakier than his name would suggest if he denies having been intimidated by screeching, apoplectic operatives of the Center for Popular Democracy, which is heavily funded by George Soros.

It's ironic that they caught him in an elevator, because that crowd aren't interested in elevating anything. The gutter is too lofty for them. They're sewer dwellers.

If you're interested in that event and the players, read this article by John Fund of the New York Post.

And I have a question for Senator Flake: If a female whose acquaintance you barely -- if at all -- remember from your callow youth were to appear out of nowhere and accuse you of a crime you supposedly committed thirty-six years ago while in a fit of randy drunkenness, egged on by your best friend, wouldn't you be mad?

Especially if she claimed to be one hundred percent sure you did it but you were equally sure that you didn't?

I'm pretty positive that your head would explode with anger and frustration, and, under intense scrutiny witnessed by the entire world, you'd come off just as agitated and angst-filled as Brett Kavanaugh did.

Since everyone is full of questions, here are mine for the female who started the whole thing:

If you really feared that Brett Kavanaugh might inadvertently kill you during the assault that may or may not have taken place somewhere, at some time, in the year nineteen-eighy-something, surely you'd have told someone -- if only to save another young woman from suffering the same fate, or worse.

Ladies, a tip: If you don't want to be sexually assaulted, one way to avoid it is to steer clear of attending drunken parties with the male of the species.

What; too simple? Victim shaming? No fun? Well, that's too bad. It's the truth. Where you go, and with whom, often determines what the outcome will be for you.

I'll go ahead and say it: Women and girls who frequent parties where there will be men, boys, and booze, know ahead of time full well what is likely to happen. The fact of the matter is that they want to play with fire but they don't want to get burned.

And by the way, if they get mauled in a way that they didn't count on, that situation bears no resemblance whatsoever to an innocent girl being molested by a boy or a man in the course of her daily life when she is doing nothing wrong and has done nothing to invite the prurient attention.

It's not the same thing at all.

So if you want him to take responsibility for his actions, then first take responsibility for your own.

Another question for the California come-lately with the convenient story:

If you're telling the truth, why would you have to change your hair from a hot mess that hasn't seen a hairbrush in years, and a complexion that has no relationship, however fleeting, with moisturizer, much less cosmetics -- to a cut-and-color, sleek blowout, slightly coquettish style that falls coyly over the trendy new Warby Parkers from behind which peer your misty earnest expertly-made-up eyes, just to tell your (extremely short) story to Congress?

Why didn't you just show up as yourself, looking and acting as you do in everyday life when the cameras aren't rolling? What's that? It wouldn't have flown so well, because you're a knee-jerk lefty lib whose appearance regularly scares small children?

I get it.

If you're telling the truth -- and if it's not a legal proceeding, as you were repeatedly advised by whiny Kamala Harris and lecture-prone Cory Booker, who took turns calling you heroic and a patriot -- why must you be flanked by lawyers, working pro bono?

Are they there to remember stuff for you? What is there to remember? The alleged incident took place thirty-six years ago and occupied maybe -- by your own account -- all of five minutes.

If you're telling the truth, why do you have to use a put-on babe-in-the-woods voice overlaid with generous helpings of Kardashian-caliber vocal fry?

It's fake news; that's why.

But even if I got all of the above dead wrong? Here's the only thing that matters:

Not one single allegation that has been proffered can be proven. Or disproven. Too many years have gone by.

So it's time to recognize that what's going on in Washington is nothing more than a rabid attack by the hard left designed to stop the confirmation of a conservative SCOTUS justice whose opinions on that bench could set their agenda back by fifty years.

Call a time of death for this shameful circus, and move on.

And that is all for now.

Happy Monday

This whole mess has us so angry, so I can understand how angry Brett Kavanough is and I can't imagine how his wife feels! I'm so sick of people saying that we need to believe her or it will affect other women reporting if they are abused. I say that these false accusations make the real ones seem less believable!
And, do people not see that whenever the Dems don't like what's happening, they trot out this same story.... Grrr!
Bob was saying that he hopes that people will see through this and vote against this in the next election. I'm not as optimistic because I feel that there are too many people that are sucked in and actually believe this!

October 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMari

@Mari ... I agree with Bob. This will backfire on them. As I said, no one knows what happened. There's no evidence. There's no way to prove it. To be talking about it is insane. It's just a distraction. xoxo

Give her enough rope and she will hang herself. As of today (Tuesday) the rope has begun to shorten. Too many people are coming out of the woodwork and punching huge holes in her "story."

October 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterCheyenne

@Cheyenne ... TG told me about a few things that have been revealed that discredit the female but I haven't read up yet on the latest developments. It's obvious that she's a tool. Bought and paid for, and when they're done using her, they'll cast her aside. xoxo

October 3, 2018 | Registered CommenterJennifer

I hope this made some Republicans, who don't vote, get riled up enough to take the time to vote! It sure riled me up. I've been abused and I can tell you in detail, when, where, what and who.

October 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJudy

@Judy ... I think this disgraceful episode will backfire on the lefties in a big way. I hope I'm right. xoxo
