Two prayers....

God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

About Me

My Photo
The title of this blog refers to the routine evolution of pressurizing & emptying to sea a human waste tank of an American submarine built prior to the mid 70's. If you don't do it right you wind up covered with excrement. The same can be said for blogging at times. Been there, done that, got the tee shirt. I'm a retired Senior Chief A-ganger from the US Submarine Service. Revert back in the Catholic Church. Recovering alcoholic. Living in Texas. 61 years old, happily married with three children, all ten years of age or under. Fully "retired", the wife works while I take care of the kids and home.

Cookbooks, vulgarity and setting an example.

I'm the stay-at-home parent in our household. The wife and I decided on that course of action long before we had kids. We'd both been "latch key children", I've the honor (?) of living it before it had a name. But for both of us it was a highly negative experience.

So regardless of how many of our friends have a marriage where BOTH spouses work (and that would be most of the folks we know) we decided to do it in the manner we thought best.

So far, so good. I've a recipe for chocolate chip cookies that some of the women of our church have actually oohed and aahed over.

Speaking of recipes, I was in the public library the other day checking out cookbooks. It was kind of jarring to come across one with the title of "Skinny Bitch Recipes".

C'mon, have we sunk that low in our culture that even cookbooks have profanity in their titles? The question is already answered.

Thinking about it though, I can't really throw too many stones here. My language on this blog is rather "salty" and not for the view of youngsters. Mote in their eye, beam in my own.

So I'll be cleaning it up here. To paraphrase an old AA saying, "Remember that you may be the only copy of the Catechism somebody comes across today."

I can't change people, places or things. I CAN change myself.

God's will be done.
