Nice work John. He reminds me of an actor who played in old west movies, but I can't put my finger on it!

Too me it just that he Glorified all the wrong things, white trash or red neck is one thing, but to aspire for it is another....and surly he most know 15 year old boys are watching....why would he make it seem so "cool" those values that will enslave them!....on top of that drug use and to many things to list....he use to be a cool rebel but borderline bad....but still on the right side....but this went all the way to the dark....to sad, I lost alot of respect for him today, just by seeing that one video.

I am serious, He needs prayer, I will be at work today and pray for him to have the Lord convict him and set him on the right path.

I agree with you!...that kid rock video was terrible, they teach kids drug use and lots of dangerous things in that video....that was from the darkside.

At 2:31pm on July 5, 2017, BeetleJuice! said…

yes me too....I really don't read the king james version anymore either, its hard to grasp, I just use it to verify stuff from time to time....i like the living bible....but I also read the Revised standard version too, its easy to read too......but those older living bibles read so smooth and nice....God Bless you!

1936 Oklahoma License Plate ~ 1 page fiction (short story)

Posted on January 12, 2017 at 4:00pm 22 Comments

Oklahoma 1936 License Plate #134-651      By John Bolton

I was made in late 1935 in the Oklahoma State Prison at Mc Alester. I was black with yellow letters. I was issued in Goodland County in 1936 and bolted on the rear of a gray and black 31' Ford coupe with a rumble seat. I couldn't see where we were going, but when the dust wasn't too bad, I could see where we'd been.

The Ford belonged to Gibson. He had a place in…

This Old Guitar  By Uncle John
I put my old Silvertone guitar up for sale and advertised it at a hundred dollars in the local Penny Saver. A young guy called about it then came to the house. He could play some. Not stuff I'd ever heard, but not bad stuff. He asked me, “Is there any wiggle room on the hundred? I'd have to…
