Turkey Day: Wishing you & your family a blessed #Thanksgiving!

Posted by: ST on November 28, 2013 at 8:27 am » 4 Comments

Just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a very safe, happy, and blessed Thanksgiving holiday. Posting here has been and will obviously be light for the next couple of days as Phineas is visiting family and mine is visiting me. Lots of cleaning and prep work has gone on in the last couple […]


Thankful for many blessings on this #FathersDay

Posted by: ST on June 16, 2013 at 10:30 am » 1 Comment

In a couple of hours the family will be getting together for lunch to celebrate Father’s Day. Considering all of the health issues my dad has been going through, we are so blessed that God has allowed him to be with us for another year and that he is still in relatively good spirits, and […]


Happy Mother’s Day to my biggest inspiration

Love you, mom!! God bless all moms out there on this special day. Though this one day of the year is designated specifically just for you, every day should be mother’s day, IMO. May this day, and every day going forward be blessed for all of you.


From #proabortion to #prolife: My thoughts on #RoeAt40

Posted by: ST on January 22, 2013 at 12:26 pm » 7 Comments

First, I’d like to say that I hate that the anniversary of this decison, which gave women the ‘right’ to terminate their pregnancy(ies), is on my birthday. Second, abortion is an issue I find hard to talk about – not because I’m afraid to talk about it (I got over that long ago) but because […]


Personal note: Down with the sickness

Posted by: ST on November 28, 2012 at 12:12 pm » 5 Comments

Hey gang, I’m STILL nursing a cough/cold that will not let me go. This marks the week and a half mark. The cough (mild at first) started Monday the 19th, the sore throat started Thanksgiving, and hasn’t let up since. Really don’t want to go to the doctor as they’ll tell me what I already […]


Happy Father’s Day, #PapaToldjah

I can’t write the post I wanted to – I get a little emotional when I write or talk about my dad these days, but I just wanted to wish him a Happy Father’s Day here on my humble little blog. Can’t wait to see him in a few hours. This photo was taken a […]


Happy Mother’s Day, #MamaToldjah, and to all mothers

Posted by: ST on May 13, 2012 at 9:15 am » 1 Comment

Getting ready to head out shortly to celebrate Mother’s Day with Mama Toldjah and my two older sisters. Normally the whole family gets together for Mom’s Day but one bro-in-law has to work and the other has to take care of a dog recovering from surgery. Dad is content just being at home so it […]


#BlogConCLT How I spent my BlogCon vacation

Posted by: Phineas on April 24, 2012 at 1:01 pm » 5 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Early last Thursday morning (as in 1:40 AM!), I jetted off for the wilds of North Carolina for the third gathering of the Rebel Alliance conservative bloggers, videographers, and policy wonks known as “BlogCon.” This being my first visit to the state and my first face-to-face interaction with my fellow dangerous potential […]


Prayer request (UPDATED)

Posted by: ST on February 3, 2012 at 10:02 am » 21 Comments

I’ve got an ultrasound appointment later on today for an issue that popped up for me in the summer of 2008 that I, unfortunately, have not followed up on until now – mainly out of fear (I know – it’s a stupid reason to not have a follow-up done). In short, I have what’s called […]


An open letter to my (now deceased) biological father, whom I never met

Posted by: ST on January 13, 2012 at 6:38 pm » 13 Comments

How is it you can cry over the death of someone you never knew and had never even met? You can if you’re me and you’ve just found out through a little Google digging that the biological father you never met passed away six months ago. Well, it’s not entirely accurate to say I “never […]
