Reasonable Question

Dogs or Children?


  • That is not my dog and those are not my children. Thank you Lord.

    By Blogger Rose~, at 4/01/2009 11:14 PM  

  • Hi Rose!

    I'm SO glad you clarified that. I just love the subject matter of this thread!

    I'm planning on calling tomorrow, between 7-8 am here-time.

    :D Michele

  • Good morning Rose,

    Children are the heritage of the Lord (Psalm 127:3)

    Beware of dogs (Philippians 3:2)

    I've had my fill of dogs. Thank you.

  • Based on my experience, the kids did both. ;o}

    By Blogger Missy, at 4/02/2009 4:55 AM  

  • Good Morning Rose

    That looks like a Yorkie in the top picture and they can get pretty fisty I've had a couple of them and the bottom looks like it could be my brother and me.

    Have a wonderful day :)

  • Had a wonderful time at GES this year, Rose; wish you had been here.

    Vote: Dogs, hands down.

    God spelled backwards.
    Unconditional love.

    Only conditional destruction.

    My wife even speaks "dog." She doesn't speak "kid."

    Alvin: Since I've been away at GES, you've made a mess here just as bad as the dog or the kids.

    This is the second time you have misspelled "feisty."

    By Blogger agent4him, at 4/02/2009 6:41 PM  

  • I agree with you Jim. I prefer the dog to the ankle-biters as well. Much safer and less work. Unconditional love? You betcha! I didn't even have to learn dogspeak with my last dog because she knew English. The one exception to my love for dogs is that nasty hound that follows Ugly around. He's not housebroke...but neither is Ugly, so put em together and you've got a housekeeping nightmare. The whole place must be sand-blasted and hosed down! Ask Miss Kitty!!:~)

  • Hi Rose/y'awl:

    Here's a hard one for y'awl. (Well, maybe not so hard, but I'll give y'awl the benefit of the doubt.)

    Men: You're sitting on your easy chair on a Saturday afternoon watching your favourite TV programme and generally feeling relaxed. Suddenly the front door bell rings and it is the wife (aka "the missus") with her arms nearly breaking with carrying the week's groceries. Just at the exact same time, your dog starts scratching frantically at the back door and howls and barks, wanting to be let in.

    QUESTION Which one do you let in first and why?

    Keep scrolling...

    ...and thinking!

    ANSWER: The dog.
    COLIN'S REASONINGS: At least it keeps quiet once it gets in

    By Blogger alvin, at 4/04/2009 7:07 AM  

  • No problem Ugly. I've got plenty of ground to air warheads in my arsenal as well. Bring on that bloggin hound! Ya better keep that mongrel out of my airspace or ya might be missin that funky smell you love so much! A preemptive strike might be in order once I take care of a another polecat that keeps shootin stinkbombs into my space! :~)

    Hi Rose! :~)


    By Blogger goe, at 4/04/2009 9:28 AM  

  • Good Morning Rose

    Have A Wonderful Lord's Day :)

    By Blogger alvin, at 4/05/2009 6:54 AM  

  • Hi Rose.

    Hey Jim, sorry to have to correct you. But the word is:


    not touchee


    By Blogger Antonio, at 4/05/2009 2:18 PM  

  • No need to apologize Antonio.

    Perhaps you could edify your brother by illuminating him on how one uses HTML to insert accented vowels, in the absence of which one's only option may be to use the double vowel as a substitute.

    By Blogger agent4him, at 4/05/2009 2:32 PM  

  • Hi Rose/Agent:

    Pardon my French (or lack of it) - but what actually does touché mean? I know having to explain a joke is well nigh fatal to it, but let's salvage what we can :0)

    BTW: When you want to accent a letter, you press Ctrl and Alt at and the vowel required at the same time and there you have it:

    t+o+u+c+h+(Ctrl with Alt and e)= touché


    P/s I think Rose sees the point that I was making and agrees with it

    By Blogger Colin Maxwell, at 4/05/2009 3:06 PM  

  • Rose, Colin,

    Thanks so much for the HTML editing tip; unfortunately, I couldn't get it to behave as you instructed.

    The word is a fencing term (lit. "touched") and refers to the verbal concession one makes when an opponent's foil makes successful contact in an attempted thrust. The English equivalent would be "I concede that you touched me!"

    In the context of our discussion, Colin, I understood perfectly well what you were coyly implying about no marriage in heaven and I readily conceded your point.

    By Blogger agent4him, at 4/05/2009 3:42 PM  

  • Hi Jim:

    I made a mistake and gave you the wrong instruction:

    Try this:

    Hold down Ctrl and Alt together
    As you are doing so then press the vowel you want accented:


    It worked for me there!

    Re: the angels not marrying or being given in marriage - maybe this is where they feared to tread :o)


    By Anonymous Colin Maxwell, at 4/05/2009 4:26 PM  

  • CTRL + ALT + E doesn't do it for me, but holding the alt key down all the while as I type in 1, 3, then 0 (130) does it. é

    By Blogger Daniel, at 4/05/2009 5:30 PM  

  • Hi Rose,

    I have a few paint stains on a table from the kids - but nothing like that! I wonder if paint thinner is better than buying a new couch?

    By Blogger Sanctification, at 4/05/2009 5:47 PM  

  • I just use character map under system tools.

    Or cut and paste the word from wikipedia like I did with that one.


    By Blogger Antonio, at 4/05/2009 5:59 PM  

  • Daniel, that did it!


    Thanks to you as well, Antonio. I looked under "Tools" but couldn't find the character map (I'm using Mozilla Firefox).

    Hi, Michele...looks like you're "back in the saddle" after your stay in Ft. Worth!

    By Blogger agent4him, at 4/05/2009 6:10 PM  

  • Hi Jim,

    You're clever. I wish I were, I don't easily get in touch (touche?) with a sense of humor.


    By Blogger Sanctification, at 4/05/2009 6:17 PM  

  • I'd rather be a gracious peacemaker (James 3:18) than a clever reptile (Gen 3:1).

    By Blogger agent4him, at 4/05/2009 6:44 PM  

  • Jim,

    What about you? Got caught up after the sleep deprivations? Detoxed from the coffee overload? It's a wonder you made it home safely. ;)

    I'm seriously liking your thesis. There may have been a page missing or maybe it's just me thinking, "Aww, was that all there was?" I wonder if you'd let me have them for my blog? I can't wait to read Unlocking Wisdom. They lost my bag at the airport and I finally got it last night. The bag that had all the books I bought... phew, I have a lot of reading to do.


    By Blogger Sanctification, at 4/05/2009 7:14 PM  

  • Hi Rose,

    Michele, yes I made it in about 11 hours and blessedly did not fall asleep at the wheel.

    Glad you finally got your luggage...I hate it when that happens!

    Regarding the paper, I'm afraid it's the "Aww, is that all there is?" option. I added the text as just a very brief orientation to the thesis depicted in the charts. I'm open to the possibility of presenting them on the blog, but I have found that some people have trouble picking up the imagery as quickly as you did without extended explanation. It may just be a "visual" thing; some are more auditory and/or tactile than visual in the way they process abstract conceptual information.

    If you can give me your ideas about how to present the material, we can discuss.

    By Blogger agent4him, at 4/05/2009 9:02 PM  

  • Hi Rose

    Jim I jumped the gun there, I would sure like to share it because I like it but I didn't ask where you are in your process of making it available. You were saying that the gifs are huge, so perhaps it's not really workable. Regardless I really appreciated having it, and will read it many times over -- it will truly empower my walk with Christ. It's very good to connect again online after the conference. You wash the feet of the saints and in doing so glorify God.

    By Blogger Sanctification, at 4/05/2009 11:29 PM  

  • No worries, Michele...

    It's a work in progress (just like me...us), and I like your idea; let's keep it in dialogue.

    Hey, Rose, what's shakin'?

    By Blogger agent4him, at 4/05/2009 11:44 PM  

  • Alvin, it's "fiesty" (I think), not "fisty"

    haha :~)

    By Blogger Rose~, at 4/07/2009 11:33 AM  

  • feisty. per Jim.
    I just knew it wasn't "fisty"

    By Blogger Rose~, at 4/07/2009 11:34 AM  

  • Colin Maxwell! Would Olive appreciate that remark???

    By Blogger Rose~, at 4/07/2009 11:35 AM  

  • Antonio is trying to give Jim his own meds. haha - that was fun.

    By Blogger Rose~, at 4/07/2009 11:36 AM  

  • Michele,
    buy a new couch.



    (I just used the key on the left of my '1' key at the top of the keyboard. None of that other stuff works. I tried it all.)

    (that was fun typing:

    "men: "

    made me feel so authoratative haha)

    By Blogger Rose~, at 4/07/2009 11:42 AM  

  • Gary,
    you subterfuger

    By Blogger Rose~, at 4/07/2009 11:42 AM  

  • Hi Rose

    Would Olive appreciate that remark???

    She laughed her head off at it.

    Not literally.

    I think I have a good point, though.


    By Blogger Colin Maxwell, at 4/07/2009 12:25 PM  

  • Daniel, thats a 1980's trick. You're a fossil.

    By Blogger bugblaster, at 4/08/2009 5:45 PM  

  • Hello Rose,

    Dogs for sure!
