HOW RICH I AM

When in Bermuda Commercial School, we had a teacher, an old fashioned Methodist, who was intent on teaching us a subject beyond accounting, etc… She began each day with Scripture and prayer and required that we memorize some of those verses.

TAUGHT.HEARD.UNDERSTOOD

Our family had a FAMILY BIBLE! It had all the appearance of having been around since the inception of Bibles.

AN ENSIGN

As the son of a “signalman” at Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, Bermuda, I became quite familiar with the flags and their code to communicate. I must admit that much of what I learned as a child has long departed. However, a few tid-bits out of my past return on occasion. One of the first things thatContinue reading “AN ENSIGN”

ANCHOR’S A WEIGHT / AWEIGH / A WAY

I have been looking for a good size boat anchor for my front yard. It takes time to find exactly what one desires.
