What’s up dude? Guess what I found out yesterday. I found out that my selfishness knows no bounds. Yeah that’s what I found out yesterday, Dairy.
I’ll tell ya dude, I just can’t stand them chain e-mails, ya know pass it on and you’ll be blessed. I tell ya what Dairy, the blessings stop here so don’t send me one of them stupid chains. I get them from a couple of people kind of regular, one is the preacher, but I guess it don’t count with him cents he is a close impersonal friend. I was gonna say a close personal friend but I just can’t do it in a public setting, well actually I don’t think you call this diary a public setting since only about 3 people ever read it. But anyway Dairy, this lady at church sent one with a poem about not drinking and driving which is a good message and it was good poem. Then it was ruined by the next statement that said if you don’t sign this and send it own then your selfishness knows no bounds, or is it your selfishness nose know bounds, or maybe it’s your selfishness nose no bounds. Anyway that just ruined a good thing. A nice little request to send it own wood have been more appropriate(even if it woodn’t have worked) but they had to be a butt-hole or maybe a whole-butt about it. So far over 1,300 people have caved in to the intimidation to sign it.
DAiry, I told ya I was gonna pick an e-mail fight with the preacher. I did too. I hit’em with a sneaky printed succor punch and he retaliated real quick with a written right hook and then a round-house left that staggered me. I ducked and dodged to stall for recovery time and then I was preparing to hit’em with a low blow; then we got interrupted by some more serious stuff and called an unspoken truce…for now.
Dairy, let me tell about Lynn’s spiritual grandpa(I just realized this today). He was a real Godly man. He was a wonderfully good husband to his lovely wife and a great dad to his kids. I know that all his grandchildren thought the world of him. I know on several occasions when I was going through some real tough times he always had something encouraging to say to me and I know that he was praying for me and that meant a lot to me. Me and LYnn were talking this morning and LYnn mentioned that this man had led someone to Christ and that person was the Childrens Church director and bus driver at the time that Lynn gave her life to Jesus. So that makes him her spiritual grandfather. Dairy, I never heard this man say nothing mean about nobody. I have also heard that him and his wife never had an argument(???????) in over forty years of marriage. Anyway dude this was an awesome man and I was privilaged to have known him.

I ARE VONSTEGALL AND SOMETIMES I KNEAD TO REFRESH MYSELF TOO…
How’s are you doing dude?
I had a pretty good weekend. We didn’t have anything worthwhile to do so I worked friday evening. Friday night our niece spent the night with us. She is such the sweetest little girl. She has a crappy family life but she is always in such a good mood, it’s amazing. Anyway we got up saturday morning and did the what do ya want to do today thing. After a half hour or so we decided to go to Morrow Mountain. We had a picnic lunch and then hiked a short trail. Maddy, our niece, thought it was the most wonderful; just walking through the woods and along the river. We saw about 30 deer and she had a ball. Jamie and Kimber have sort of been bored with Morrow Mountain the last several times we’ve been but having someone else along made it fresh and fun them too.
Dairy, we are in the midst of a drought and there was big signs everywhere saying BURNING BAN NO FIRES, and guess what dude? Yep! that’s right some idiots had a camp fire going. We saw the park ranger heading that way and went back to see if he would make them put it out. As we rode by the ranger was chewing some butt and the lady was just shaking her head up and down like she didn’t have a clue there was burning ban. We also saw the same ranger checking people’s coolers for alcohol. Heck that dude wasn’t letting nothing pass so we put our seatbelts on.
DAiry, on the way home we had to make a stop and we ran into, we didn’t actually hit her with the car or nothin but we saw a very good freind from our teenage years and had a good long talk with her. So overall it was a good day saturday. At first I thought it was gonna suck cause there weren’t no westerns on but it worked out right nice.
Well Dairy, I’m gonna go now, I ain’t got nothing better to do so I’m gonna start an e-mail fight with the preacher. See ya later.
PHILIPIANS 4:21 SALUTE EVERY SAINT IN CHRIST JESUS. THE BRETHREN WHICH ARE WITH ME GREET YOU.
IS VONSTEGALL AND I’M GONNA BE CIA BY BEING CMIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Dude, what a fool I am. Paw-Paw VonStegall use to tell this story back before he kicked over, I don’t think he’s told it since. Anyway he use to tell the story about the last time he ever drank alcohol. He was coming out of the store and was walking down the steps and a voice says “Floyd what a fool you are!” He said he never drank after that. There wasn’t anyone around but he heard the voice. Anyway I’m a fool. I stopped at the store this morning to get me a coffee and I locked my keys and phone in the car. I went back in and got change. Dairy, I wented back to the pay phone and there wasn’t no phone on the end of the cord. I didn’t want to go back in the store so I gave my sob story to the next construction worker who pulled in and asked to use his phone. So I called Lynn and got her up early to brang me my keys. Sew I sat out there on my uncomfortable hood and waited. The next time I buy a vehicle I”m gonna sit on the hood to see if it’s halfway comfortable. Of course I’d rather sit on an uncomfortable hood than stand up anywhere.
WARNING THIS PARAGRAPH MAY BE OFFENSIVE TO SOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dairy speaking of Paw-Paw VonStegall I’m reminded of an editorial I readed in yesterday’s paper. We is in the midst of a drought don’tcha know and this dude writes in tellin everyone who reads this paper and it’s one of the largest papers in the southeast, it’s called The Charlotte Observer, anyway this dude writes in and tells everyone reading how to cut their water usage in half. In his house it’s him, his wife, and his in-laws. Well all they have done to conserve is to stop flushing the toilet unless they do a number 2. Dairy, I don’t know about you but I don’t want anyone else’s pee splashing up on my butt, not my youngun’s or Lynn’s and especially not my in-laws. I know what your thinking Dairy, how does that remind me of Paw-Paw VonStegall? Right? Well he would only flush his toilet at night unless he crapped during the day and he only did that about once a week and then only if he took an ex-lax, and if he did crap it was gonna be the topic of a conversation. Dude we usually peed outside at his house unless it was real cold and then we would take a deep breath pee as fast as we could and get the heck out of there.
Dairy I don’t want ya to think Paw-Paw VonStegall was totally crazy he didn’t tell everyone about his bowel movements only those of us that was closest to him heard about them.
Well Dairy that’s about all I have to say today. See ya later dude.

Whiles we was in the mountains we checked out the place I thunk we was going on our mission trip next year. It just isn’t gonna pan out. This place was a food distribution ministry and it was out of an individuals house. They only do the distribution every 2 weeks. I gots on line and I’ve found another place that does food distribution, dental, clothing, and home impovements. I’ve called but I hasn’t received a return call yet. I’ll just have to keep praying. I don’t know why I volunteered to do this. If all else fails we will do what we did last year. I really enjoy going to Grifton, but I think I’m feeling lead to do a food distribution thing and maybe help with a Bible School. Heck Dairy, I have such a hard time trying to decipher what God wants me to do as an individual much less trying to plan something for the church. I reckon we will see what happens.

I IS VONSTEGALL AND I NEED AN INTERPRETER!!!!!!!!!
It’s true, duct tape can fix anything. Last night I bent over to pick something up and I heard something go rip and felt some cool air on my buttocks. Dude I ripped’em good. I grabbed a roll of duct tape and went to the bathroom and taped my britches closed. It held the rest of the night which was most of the shift.
Dairy, I went in early monday night and another dude who works a good bit of overtime showed me a copy of an e-mail in one of the work leaders mail box. It said that supervisors are to control overtime and that operators should not come in whenever they feel like it if they ain’t scheduled to work. Well I haven’t been scheduled to work over any this week, but I went back in early tuesday anyway. The second shift supervisor hain’t said nothing so I’m gonna keep on working what I want to until he does. All I know is that I was told I could work all the overtime I wanted(which actually is none).
Whale dude I’ll see ya later.
MARK 12:17 AND JESUS ANSWERING SAID UNTO THEM, RENDER TO CAESAR THE THINGS THAT ARE CAESAR’S, AND TO GOD THE THINGS THAT ARE GOD’S.
I AM VONSTEGALL AND I’M SMILING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We had such a good time, albeit short and busy. EYE was surprised we got through charlotte in less than an hour and that is a good start to any vacation that intales going through charlotte nc(some of the worse traffic in the country). It allweighs amazes me that the free things always entertains the most. The kids enjoyed skipping rocks in the river and playing in a bamboo forest. We hung out along the Nantahala River witch is known four white water rafting. They are in the midst of a drought like us and there was places that a kayak couldn’t pass through it was sew dry.
Dairy, the Bible Park was kind of a let down. It was cool seaing the 10 commandments on the mountain side but the place was kind of old and knot everything was kept up like it should be. The most interesting thing we saw was for dudes laid out in front of some christian themed plaques praying. We think they was muslims and we just couldn’t figure out why they wood be dewing that. We speculated was they christian converts turning there muslim rituals intwo sumthing that was concrete and worthwhile or maybe they went to a christian themed park to make sum kind of religious statement. I don’t really no but it was interesting.
Dairy, they had a baptism pool and their was a group their who was baptizing some of there members. That was kind of interesting two. About seven people wear being baptized. Mostly kids. That was pretty cool. This won older lady was baptized and she did started shaking and convulsing and squeling when she came up. EYE’m allweighs kind of skeptical of those things, EYE don’t no if it was The Holy Spirit, or just extreme emotions during an important event in her life, or a show. I don’t really care won weigh or another but it was humours Dairy.
Dairy, we stopped and let the kids play putt-putt. Jamie and Kimber both had the best games they ever played and Jamie got a whole in won got to spin for a free game. He got his whoe in won own the 1st whole so if he spun a won he got a free game or a bowl of ice cream. He spun a won and one. We had just got ice cream befour playing so he got a free game, sew we payed for Kimber to play again the second game was half price and some how or another Kimber got to play free also. Jamie got another whole in won but we didn’t say nothing, I didn’t won’t two stay for a third game.
Dairy, I guess that’s about all the highlights of hour trip. I knead two go now I have to call that publisher back about selling him the rites to a poem somewon wrote me last weak. He said I may get a six digit pay out for it if I count the decimal point and then round to the nearest thousandth.

I BE VONSEAGULL AND RAYNE YOUR POEM IS PRICELESS!!!!!!!!!!!! IT REALLY IS; I COULDN’T GET A PRICE FOR IT FROM NOBODY, TEEHEE, TEEHEE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rayne I absolutely loved your poem. I have read it over and over. Since you gave that poem to me IF you sell it to anybody I want at least thirty percent or else I will sue you for all the profits you get. I will also sue you for any memobilia that you happen to retain during any personal sting operations.
How are you today? I’m in a pretty good mood, I’m going to the mountains tomorrow. We found us a pretty good deal on an efficiency cabin. If the website hadn’t of had pictures I may have kept looking but the pictures are nice. We are gonna go to Murphy NC. If ya look at the map it’s in the western most corner of NC down between Georgia and Tennessee. The main attraction there is FIELDS OF THE WOODS BIBLE PARK. They have the 10 commandments on the side of a mountain and other things that are Biblical and lots of hiking trails. The best part is it’s all free. We’re gonna take off as soon as I get home from work friday morning. I’m looking forward to just sitting on the porch looking at the mountains and reading a good book. I think I’ll go to the library and get me a good western to carry with us. I ain’t read a good western in a long time either and there just ain’t no excuse. Guess what else we may, no, we are gonna do? Yeah that’s right we’re gonna get us some ice cream.
Dairy we arsn’t been nowhere like that as a family in over a year. Man it use to be common to take an overnighter to the mountains or beach a couple of times a year. Ah the good ol’days.
Well Dairy, I gots to go I’ve got a busy day ahead what with sleeping and packing. See ya later dude.

What’s up dude? I just got home from work. Everyone is a sleep. I’m trying to get into the habit of reading a couple of devotions before everyone gets up. Lynn has been getting edevotions from David Jeremiah, and Greg Laurie so I’ve been reading them.
Dairy, my back still hurts, but not as much.
DAiry, I tell ya what Dairy, church was a joke yesterday, we should have just had the special music and the sermon. I guess as long as the sermon is good that is all that matters, I reckon having Hannah sing was a bonus. I don’t know why but sometimes you go to a service and all you seem to hear is vain babbling, it was sort of like that yesterday. Heck maybe it was just me, I don’t know dude.
Dairy, it was like the 4th week of the ss church year. They was taken some kind of census on the enrollment and it came to light that I wasn’t enrolled in my new class, so I stayed unenrolled.
DAiry, what the crap is HTML tags and line breaks.
