The ChristianHeadlines read
Will CT Allow Men in Bathrooms with Our Mothers, Daughters... Grandmothers?
"Unlike homosexuals, many transgendered men are sexually attracted to women. They express their gender identity in a skirt while, at the same time, they are attracted to, date and marry women. Though definitions are fluid, the transgender community commonly refers to these men as "male lesbians."
"One expression is a heterosexual man who chooses to dress as a woman or as a woman and a man at the same time -- not temporarily or as part of a transitional period, but as a permanent expression of self. This expression can include cashmere and chest hair or breasts with a beard. Unfortunately labeled by transgender activists as "gender*cking" (they substitute * for "u"), this type of expression is included under the umbrella of transgender and would be protected by the proposed law."
Really, cashmere sweater and chest hair and/or breasts with a beard; is that your idea of a trans woman. Oh, but that’s “transgender(ed) (adjective) men, oh is that a woman who presents as a man; (that the definition that I was given) not!! But then they describe a heterosexual man who chooses to dress as a woman, (Ok I get that), but then they describe him as a woman and a man AT THE SAME TIME! OH My, goodness, lets see, a person who splits himself down the middle wearing on the left side, (left being the insidious side of man) long hair, makeup (on that side) 1/2 a dress, stockings and a high heel. The right side mans haircut, 1/2 of a mustache, tie, jacket, trousers and oxford with elevated heel to match the other heel. Get the picture, I did sound like a old Carnival side show.
He could get the feminine side drunk and take her home to have his way with her, or she with him. Talk about a cheap drunk!

Our lesson learned this past week is when you pray for something from the heart for long enough it might come to pass. But more important is when you pray don't be specific, just pray; because what you can get is something that you never imagined would happen in a lifetime. We have had reservation about 'holy week' as that was the time when some people really tried to push us into a corner and make us invisible as members of our church, so we really haven't been too visible.

It is about 3.5 hour drive down to Orlando from where we live. Add that to two days in amusement parks with ladies of ummmmmmmm a certain age and you have a little fatigue going on. Also, added to the mix was the coordinating a ladies church meeting that I had not planned to do got dumped on me and they had been calling and irritating me while I was on vacation. All was good UNTIL..........we started to the music store just before we left to pick up a keyboard we had purchased. I was driving. As usual, Sarah starts telling me how to drive and where to go. Most days I would just ignore her but ................well today the fatigue kinda clouded my mind so I "stop telling me what to do!" She didn't. So things were a little tense for a few minutes. We both know this is just the difference in our personalities so we got back our more pleasant moods, got the keyboard and got on the road.
Sarah wanted to stop in Gainesville at the VA Hospital because they have ordered new hearing aids for her (I am so happy because she really has some deafness). So I turn off the correct exit and drive to the VA Hospital. The parking lot is full!! We are driving around and see a car pulling out of a parking space. I put my blinkers on and wait for the man to back out the parking place. A car comes from behind me, starts to go around as the man is backing out of his place. I thought the guy pulling around us was in a hurry. He was!! He was in a hurry to get the parking space I was waiting for! Well, that just pissed me off! I didn't stop and yell at him because there are so many crazy, mean people in the world today and losing my life over a parking place is not the way I want to go out. I just ranted and raved about "white male privilege" as we walked into the hospital. I was REALLY irritated now.
Sarah was able to only schedule an appointment to get her hearing aids so we were in and out of the hospital in 5 minutes. As we walked out into the parking lot, I was pretty sure the parking space stealing guy's car was still going to be in the parking lot. A lot of options went through my mind about what I could do to get him back. No, I was not going to damage his car but...........if I could just think of something. I looked around for some boards that I could put behind his tires so he couldn't back up easily but, of course, there are no boards. Then a solution came into my mind. I began preparing. Just as we got to the back of the guys car, I had worked up a really big mouth full of spit. I spit at his car. I really didn't think it would actually hit his car BUT..............not only did the spit hit his car but it hit in EXACTLY the middle of his back window.............he was going to have to look through my spit to get out of his parking place!
Sarah was HORRIFIED. She looked back and said, "there is a cop on a bicycle that just pulled out as you did that." I said I didn't care. Sarah says, "what will you do if he comes and says something to you?" The ridiculousness of the situation was beginning to get to me. I began laughing. I mean really belly laughing! I said, "I will tell the policeman that I sneezed." Sarah just looked more horrified.
Sarah decides that it is her turn to drive now. We get in the car and decide where we are going to eat. As we are driving along, the ridiculousness of what I had done really gets me to laughing again. Sarah is still concerned about the policeman. I can't quit laughing. Finally, Sarah gets tickled. We got to one of our favorite restaurants had a delicious meal. Then went to a little shop, bought our daughter a gift and came home.
Oh, God. I hope that church ladies meeting goes good tomorrow!

Had a second great day at Universal Studios with our extended family grandkids. Spent the day at the other side of the park with E.T. and Terminator and Twisters, Oh My!! Watching both boys experience the rides and shows is a treat in itself with their dad. We haven't been at one of these attractions with kids in a long time. Heard some good bands during the day, danced with the kids, did the hand jive song with the band that played the oldies at Mel's Diner. Saw Lucy and Ricky and Marilyn walking down the street, saw Scooby, Curious George and Woody and Dora the Explorer. Saw a lot more people than yesterday as it was sunny.
