“Bringing In The Sheaves” (new geo Blog for the week of Sept 11/17)

When my daughter Cami (pictured with me above) was going to high school in Wellington, she lived with me for a little while. I was in charge of getting her to school and back each day, and she was in charge of the car radio. Some days it was cowboy music on WIRK, sometimes CHR on WILD 95, and occasionally even a little AC on WRMF. However, the one she listened to most was WAY-FM, which was a Christian rocker.
One day she asked if I could drop her and a friend off at a Christian concert at the fairgrounds. I got back to pick them up around 10, and when I asked the folks at the gate how much longer it would be, they told me that they were running a little late, but I was welcome to come inside and wait. When I came around the corner at the back of the venue where I could see the stage, I was surprised to see what looked like a punk rocker climbing up on top of one of the huge speakers. Once up there he screamed at the audience, “Are there any Jesus freaks in here?” The place went wild, and when the band who sounded like Led Zeppelin exploded, the singer continued to scream, but now it was about loving Jesus. I remember wondering at the time “What the hell ever happened to “Bringing In The Sheaves?”

Speaking of Irma, when it looked like she was going to give us a direct hit, the TV reporters were trying to calm us. Now they are trying to scare us?

Made it thru Irma with a just sone wet carpet. The best news though is Cami is safe in Tampa and has power. I sure don’t but Duffys is open.

  1. Re the title of this piece: When I was a young kid being dragged off to church every Sunday by my parents, I always thought the name of the hymn was “Bringing in the Cheese” … which puzzled me until I was much older. Then, the fact that I had been in church every Sunday for years puzzled me.

  2. I’m not sure what this climate change thing is all about. There must be a pile of gold in it somewhere. One burp from a volcano can put out enough noxious gasses to surpass all the ones that mankind has ever produced since we got on this earth.
