This is much easier to remember !!!

Y'all get this down good now, ya hear?

Ten Commandments
Some people have trouble with all those 'shall's' and 'shall not's' in the Ten Commandments. Southern Country Folks just aren't used to talking in those terms. So, in middle Tennessee they translated the 'King James' into ' Jackson County ' joke (posted on the wall at Cross Trails Church in Gainesboro , TN

(1) Just one God
(2) Put nothin' before God
(3) Watch yer mouth
(4) Git yourself to Sunday meetin'
(5) Honor yer Ma & Pa
(6) No killin'
(7) No foolin' around with another fellow's gal
(8) Don't take what ain't yers
(9) No tellin' tales or gossipin'
(10) Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff

Now that's plain an' simple. Y'all have a nice day now, ya he ar! And bless your little he art....

Can't get any plainer than that.

Oooh, that is just wonderful!

Dearest Patty--don't worry about getting around to my blog, or even writing anything if you do--I know how busy our lives can get and you must NOT feel guilty about that.

Just know that you and your family are in my prayers every day. I treasure you, sweet Friend. ((hugs)) Don't you worry about that, okay? ((hugs))

I think even the Lord would approve of these!

We are under warnings for extreme heat starting tomorrow and continuing until Wednesday. 97 or more degrees, triple digit heat index. (110 to 115) I even started the generator, to make sure it's working, just in case of a power outage. I'm praying that won't happen. Gonna be too hot to boggie for the next several days!

Have a good evening. Hope the heat doesn't come your way.
