Quote of the day... ?!?

So I'm having me my Chick-fil-A breakfast this morning kind of people watching and a young man comes in.  Kinda hippy-like--long hair, twitchy, backpack.  So I keep him in the corner of my vision wondering if he's there to start some shit. He hangs cool, gathers his food, and then, on his way out the door, exclaims:
"Walk in the shadow of the Lord, because the light will give you sunburn."

Not exactly sure what that means, but I'm sure now that his twitchiness was in anticipation of Pontificating this sentence before the Chick-fil-A audience that he probably spent all night crafting.

Interesting... and staying alert is NOT a bad idea!

Sounds like just another Gnostic Jungian Independent Baptist to me.

NFO--I figured that with all the brouhaha, taking the alertness up to a different level wouldn't be a bad thing.

Chas--LOL! He sure was proud of himself and his proclamation....

Tonight, getting ready to go sit out on the covered porch with a cold drink, Barkley is put on the zip line, to hang out with us. You've been at this friends house. Quiet suburb, 25 miles from the city. Polish/Irish families, big local Catholic church, a few Hispanic families, the area hard working clean, quiet. As Barkley was hooked up in the doorway, a young African American teen comes RUNNING down the sidewalk, he's NOT jogging, he's running. Barkley took off (on the zip) down the front steps after him, before we could catch him, he damn near nailed him, barking like the Hounds of the Baskervilles. Had to have scared the (*)#( out of the kid.

A cop car came by shortly thereafter. Someone was stealing stereos out of vehicles. Don't know if it was him or he was just part of the group or just a kid out of his neighborhood out for a full fledged run away.

I doubt he'll be going past THIS house again.

When we went out, in addition to a glass with ice there was a firearm or two. Barkley sat in front of us both, simply watching.

Be safe out there.
