Grandpa was a Confederate Marine

May 1st, 2009

usmcemblemTo say that we are a Marine family is a bit of an understatement. Our family is and has been Marine for over a century and a half. Our Great-great grandfather served proudly in the Confederate States Marine Corps (CSMC) during the late unpleasantness with the Yankee government. A proper explanation of this will be a good start to this story of our family’s pride in the Corps. Read more…

President Abraham Lincoln, while giving the Gettysburg Address, proclaimed this nation to be a government of the people, for the people, and by the people. Yet today that same government has lost its compass and is on a road toward destruction unless “We The People” take the necessary steps to regain control of our government. Read more…

Our First TV

April 5th, 2009

philtv49When I was in the first grade, in about 1954, I came home one day to learn that Daddy had bought a television set. It was a second handed one, but it worked just fine, considering the day. It had a round screen and I believe it was a Philco brand. I think there were about two stations that we could pick up with that rabbit ear antenna, and they were probably Columbus and Atlanta.

During my early childhood I lived either in or around the West Georgia city of LaGrange.  Almost all my relatives lived there, so it was home to me.  I had cousins by the dozens and really enjoyed playing with them when I could.  Family Reunion at my PaPa Robinson’s house in mid June was always the highlight of my whole year, because I got to see all my cousins, even the ones from Alabama.

February 15th, 2009

Has Our Messiah Arrived?

February 12th, 2009

If you listen to all the hubbub in the news lately, you’d swear that our Great National Savior has finally arrived in the person of President Barrack Obama.  We are promised a better economy, universal healthcare, a sharing of the wealth, world peace, and in general, a happier world to live in.  So why don’t I feel the relief that I should feel when “The Great One” has finally taken his post and firmly has all matters in hand?

The First Thanksgiving in Retrospect

November 10th, 2008

We have all heard of and studied the celebration of the first Thanksgiving and the events that led up to this festival of thanksgiving to God by the Pilgrims.  They left England on September 6, 1620 and after two months of storm-tossed seas, they landed at Plymouth Rock in present day Massachusetts.  After reaching Plymouth Rock they had a prayer service and then began to construct crude shelters.  Ill prepared for the harsh winter, nearly half of the party died before spring.
