    JT, you hail from some interesting roots. Do you suppose the bible was for comfort, inspiration or toilet paper?

    Most of my family roots are Mountain View Missouri. Not far from your home, as the crow flies. Many a visit was spent going to the Sheppard in the woods site. My paternal grandfather was a part time baptist minister. Real fire and brimstone. When I told him I didn’t think that there was any god he didn’t speak to me for about ten years. Grandma did. She didn’t care. She was more mad that my parents divorced. This is also where one of the first UFO conventions was hosted. I still have a copy of the book “My Trip to the Moon, Venus, and Mars”, by Buck Wilson. In a strange twist of fate, Buck’s guide to these places was named Bucky (Imagine the coincidence). He also had a pelt from a real Venus animal. In another strange twist of fate, my mom’s best friend lost her Persian cat for two weeks and when it finally showed up it had been shaved.

    Depends on what version of the bible, although I’m willing to bet that down in ‘hollers’ of Arkansas, they use the catlick version for their toileting requirements.
