Thanks Khaled! Hope your willingness to allow annon wanna-be bloggers won't fill your comment box with spam!

This was a riot! A very balanced, equalized look at our own chosen blindnesses.

If you ever go to one of those "Country Home Buffet" restaurants on a Sunday morning, you can see it clearly. The Mexican Catholics go to early Mass, the parking lot is filled with wild cars and thier kids knock over the table cleaners running. Us mild, time and program bound Protestants come and our kids act bored and rude (not my kids, they get butt-spanked for bad attitudes). Then the Af/Am come (they spend 4 hours in church!)They are dressed to the nines in dapper suits and dreses with matching hats and shoes.

thanks for the fun reminder of home!
