Making sure the holes go all the way through 

Posted by Pastor Ron Sunday, April 17, 2011 7:00:00 AM
Making sure the holes go all the way through Paul is making sure the rust holes go all the way through in David's truck. Things! They wear out, rust, break, get stolen and/or your little brother pokes holes in them. Jesus promised us as much. You can take a picture but you can't make time stop. Paul is 6'4" now and David's Ford is ... read more

Grace doesn't always mean peace

Grace doesn't always mean peace Sea Lions are incredibly graceful. But as most divers know, their playful antics can really disturb the peace. And if a bull Sea Lion is present the disturbance isn't always playful. Getting body slammed by a 600 pound animal isn't as much fun for the slammee as it evidently is for the... read more

Red Eyes say leave me alone 

Posted by Pastor Ron Friday, April 15, 2011 7:00:00 AM
Red Eyes say leave me alone OK ~ fine by me! No need to get all snappy. These are Kelp crabs and not all of them have red eyes... or at least their eyes are not red all of the time. I'm not sure what the eye color variation means but I really think these guys are funny. When approached they stand their... read more

Do crabs blink? 

Posted by Pastor Ron Thursday, April 14, 2011 7:00:00 AM
Do crabs blink? Well some do and some don't. And the ones that do don't blink like Mr. Krabs on Sponge Bob. Dungeness crab can fold their eye stalks partially down into their carapace to give them a little protection. But they still get sand in their eyes. I can't see how that would be a ... read more

I love the green eyes 

Posted by Pastor Ron Wednesday, April 13, 2011 7:00:00 AM
I love the green eyes And the red dress really seems to complement them nicely. Still there is that fiery disposition to deal with and Red Rock Crabs are seldom worth provoking. read more

Color me Green 

Posted by Pastor Ron Monday, April 11, 2011 7:00:00 AM
Color me Green And I don't mean iridescent glowing green. I already had my misgivings about nuclear power plants before the recent disaster unfolding in Japan. I'm thinking that these greens are a much better color. read more

'King of the World' 

Posted by Pastor Ron Sunday, April 10, 2011 7:00:00 AM
'King of the World' Well, maybe not. That isn't the Titanic and that isn't Leonardo and Kate. It must be the fresh sea air that brings out such exultations. Nah. Just stopping to pick up a hitch hiker on the way to Men's Retreat. Never too early to put this on your calendar: September 23-24, 2011 read more
