What do retired people do all day?

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days

Well for example, the other day I went into town and went into a shop. I was
only in there for about 5 minutes, when I came out there was a cop writing
out a parking ticket.

I went up to him and said, Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a
break? He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a Nazi
pig. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn
tires. So I called him a jerk. He finished the second ticket and put it
on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket.
This went on for about 20 minutes.

The more I abused him, the more tickets he wrote. Personally, I didn't care.
I came in to town by bus. I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm

It's important at my age. :)
Seriously, my sermon today in church was on "Christ's Teaching on the Mouth."
Our Church Web Site
Appropriate huh? After church Marion and I strolled down Park Avenue the next block over from our house and looked at all the cool HotRods in the annual Fern Hill Car Show. See the pictures in my Picture Trail album here:

Friday we drove over to Yakima and had a nice visit with sister Deuchle. She is one of our elderly members who is in an assisted living facility over there. We usually go over on the 5th Sunday of the month but my backup preacher, brother Turner, is out of town this weekend for a Bible Conference up in Eagle, Alaska.

I think this week we might take off for a few days and go to the ocean. That is one of the first things I wanted to do when I retired and so far we haven't had enough time to do it. I thought retirement would be a lot more laid back than it has been so far but I'm getting used to it and Marion and I both like it a lot....

Farewell Sister Linda

Very warm weather here lately in Tacoma. Some people say it is HOT. It doesn't even cool down very much at night. This is very unusual. Glad we have A/C in our new church property. I preached today on What Jesus taught about Marriage. Sermon outline was posted on our church web site.

Marion and I drove up to Mt. Vernon yesterday for the memorial service for sister Linda Pietsch. She was a cancer survivor for many years and then it came back in her bones and eventually the Lord took her home. Our prayers go out for dear brother Tim. He was a home missionary out of our church a few years back and Linda was always there for him and their 5 children.

A friend sent me this info.

The Red Planet is about to be spectacular!

This month and next, Earth is catching up with Mars in an encounter that
will culminate in the closest approach between the two planets in
recorded history. The next time Mars may come this close is
in 2287. Due to the way Jupiter's gravity tugs on
Mars and perturbs its orbit, astronomers can only be
certain that Mars has not come this close to Earth
in the Last 5,000 years, but it may be as long as
60,000 years before it happens again.

The encounter will culminate on August 27th when
Mars comes to within 34,649,589 miles of Earth and
will be (next to the moon) the brightest object in
the night sky. It will attain a magnitude of -2.9
and will appear 25.11 arc seconds wide. At a modest
75-power magnification Mars will look as large as
the full moon to the naked eye.
Mars will be easy to spot. At the
beginning of August it will rise in the east at 10 PM.
and reach its azimuth at about 3 AM.

By the end of August when the two planets are
closest, Mars will rise at nightfall and reach its
highest point in the sky at 12:30 AM. That's pretty
convenient to see something that no human being has
seen in recorded history. So, mark your calendar at
the beginning of August to see Mars grow
progressively brighter and brighter throughout the
Actually, this happened in 2003. for more info on
it, check out this link:

Joel 2:30

With all that is going on in the world today,
especially in relation to the nation of Israel,
it is not a suprise to me that there are unusual
things going on in the heavens too.

If you have never considered the validity of the
New Testament Gospel, may I suggest that you do so
as soon as possible? Read the gospel of John and
the book of Romans. Email me if you have questions.

If you have by faith trusted the Lord Jesus Christ
as your personal Savior, it is time to do an evaluation
of your faithfulness to HIM. You should be serving
HIM faithfully through the ministries of a true local
New Testament Church.

I look forward to being in the prayer meeting services
tonight at TLBC in Tacoma. Where will YOU be?

Want to learn what Jesus taught about Morality? See my Sunday morning sermon outline today on the front page of our church website. TLBC



A guy was in a supermarket when he noticed an old lady following him around. Whenever he stopped, she stopped, and she also kept staring at him. She finally overtook him just before the checkout where she turned to him and said, "I hope I haven't made you feel uncomfortable - it's just that you look so much like my late son."

"Oh, that's ok," he said.

"I know it's silly," she continued, "but if you called out 'Goodbye, Mother' as I leave, it would make me ever so happy."

The old lady proceeded through the checkout and as she left the supermarket, the man called out "Goodbye Mother." The old lady waved back, and kindly smiled.

Pleased he had brought a bit of sunshine to someone's day, the man went to pay for his groceries.

"That'll be 105 dollars," said the clerk.

"How come?" inquired the man. "I've only bought a few things!"

"Yeah, but your mother said you'd pay for hers.

Hope you had a good 4th of July

I hope you all had a bang up fourth of July and everyone made in home OK, safe and sound. Marion and I planned to use our free passes to ride down to the waterfront and watch the fireworks from there but there were so many fine displays going on in the neighborhood we decided to just stay home and enjoy it from here. We REALLY like sitting out on the porch swing in the cool of the evening anyway.

Enjoyed good services in TLBC again today. My sermon was on "Christ's Teaching on Murder" and the outline is on the front page of our TLBC website. Marion is still recovering from a bad bout with infection in her lungs after the root canal a couple of weeks ago. She was in the hospital for a couple of days over it. I take her into the doctor tomorrow for a follow up visit. She had not been drinking her Body Balance faithfully like she should.

I am still very happy with the good health the Lord has blessed me with since I started taking Body Balance back in June of 03. Until then I caught a cold or the flu almost every month or two but now I have only had ONE cold since June of 03. I can't tell you what a blessing that is in my life. If you would like to try a free sample of Body Balance go to this link Click Here and if you agree to do the autoship for two quarts per month (you may cancel any time after the first quart arrives) and pay for the shipping of the first quart, I will see to it that Life Force gives you the first quart of Body Balance at no charge (about a 30.00 value). Please, for your own good health's sake, give this a try. You will love what it does for you I am sure.

Last Friday night Marion and I took my 83 year old mother and our 14 year old granddaughter up to the Mariners game at Safeco Field in Seattle. Even though the home team lost to the Detroit Tigers we all had a wonderful time. We rode to and from the game in a LIMO. It was great. I think I am going to really like retirement. :)

I DID it!

Greetings in the name of the Lord,

Good day in church today. I preached on "True Christianity vs False Worship" and had liberty. A copy of the sermon will be coming out on DVD soon. In the mean time you can study the sermon outline on our church web site here: TLBC .

Well, I went in to work last Thursday and fired my boss. I am now officially retired from Pierce Transit. What a great feeling. Ordinarily I would be going in to work again next time at 6PM tomorrow but, he he, now I NEVER have to go in again and I don't even have to CALL in if I'm not going to be there. Ye Haw! They had cake and ice cream for me in the lunch room, gave me a plaque and a couple of life time free bus passes and I turned in my keys, badge, cell phone, parking permit and walked off the property. I had already cleaned out my locker and removed my tool boxes the night before. What a nice birthday present to give myself. Friday evening we had a nice little get together over at Round Table Pizza and I celebrated with some close friends and family. A couple of my former crew members who were already retired came too and we had a great time.

After the dust settles from the 4th of July celebrations Marion and I will probably take off for a few days and go to the ocean.

Well there is a lot more that I could say about the events of this week but I want to keep this short. Lord bless you. Keep me in mind if you ever want to get some top of the line liquid nutritional health products. I'd be happy to get some to you and if you ever want to get started in an online home biz, let me know and I can help with that too.
