Sibling Rivalry – Reblog


My original intention was to write the posts on the three cousins of Ferriday one after another, Jerry Lee Lewis, Mickey Gilley, both of whom had died recently, and ending with the post one the last and only living one, Jimmy Swaggart.

I knew he had a couple scandals involving women, but I never realized that he had numerous scandals involving just about every aspect of his life. Too numerous to be glossed over. And just not fitting to be told as we approach the Season of major High Holidays and Holy Days in every Major and Minor religion around the world.

I decided to instead put off the scandal-ridden story of this ‘man of the cloth?’ until after the Season ends. And post instead three reblogs celebrating the spirit of the Season.

This is the first. While it does not take place within the calendar of the season, it is a story of the joy of Giving and Sharing.

3 darlins

One is never too old to learn. One is never too young to teach.


One of the birthday presents our 7 year old granddaughter, Jayda, received was a $15 gift card.

The other day, her mother took Jayda and her two younger sisters to the store so Jayda could buy something with her gift card. Jayda knew how she wanted to spend the card, but had kept it a secret.

She took her time, trying to find something that she would not only like, but would fit in with her plan. Finally, she found the perfect thing, a pair of ‘Princess’ sandals for $5.

She figured out that the $15 would not only buy her a pair, but would also buy a pair for each of her sisters.

Her gift card may be depleted but all three girls enjoy Jayda’s birthday present.

Such a sweet, sharing child. She sure makes it easy to be a proud grandfather.
