anon - thanks for letting me know. I wasn't sure.

ersatz - the comments are pretty sweet. I like the guy in georgia who said that their governor said a similar thing awhile back and they've had rain ever since. then he said "look it up."

Sorry, I can only pray for my own nation-state.

I never knew that if I didn't pray for rain, I would go to hell. I'm missing the connection but, after all, I'm not God. I guess he could send souls to hell for that...

Noah (from the Ark) is DEFINITELY in heaven.

Why didn't he ask us to pray that the soulless German corporation would decide to exploit out workers instead of Louisiana's?

I think I might take him up on this one, though.

why not a rain dance?

I like the picture in the background.

Has John told you our funny/revealing story? I had to pick Rachel up at a certain church parking lot in town - ok, it was Briarwood - as we pulled up the hill & 3 year old Tim saw the church building, he said, "Look Mommy! It's the Tower of Power!"

Obviously, he has watched too much TV where the cartoon animals go looking for the Tower of Power - but I found his ability to make connections fascinating.

Patrick Sewell, please allow me to geek out for a minute.

ThyssenKrupp (is that what you're talking about?) is going to be making hot-rolled steel. That's so cool I can barely stand it.

I'm not sure if ThyssenKrupp has a soul, though.

benj - you texans are so full of it. and by "it", I mean george bush.

nrm - I don't know what your initials stand for. it's driving me crazy. so crazy, in fact, that I just drove my hand through a window.

patrick - the governor does happen to have a keen interest in economic development. this much is true. exploiting workers? not sure I'm following you on that one...

brett - I thought the same thing. suggesting a week of rain dancing would be equally as innappropriate, as far as I see it.

jp - thanks. I was trying to decide between either that one, or one of him on the horse. i love those horse shots. and re: the tower of power. I love that. along those lines, I remember as a kid, seeing that organ, and thinking, "that organ is bigger than my house".

susan - there is nothing cool about hot-rolled steel. it is in fact so hot that it will kill you instantly just by looking at it.

susan said...

Oh. I didn't know that.

Benj is full of rain. That's what we have in Texas. Rain and money, all the time. It rained on me on the way to work this morning (and it was even sunny out). There is so much rain I have to wipe the moisture off with "Franklin's". Thank you big SUV driving America. Apparently Texas has Gods favor because of "W" and Joel.

At least Riley isn't embarrassed to be a Christian.

Aaron said...

awesome of all things someone would ask people to pray for , he chooses rain.

Jon Black said...

I just prayed for rain. It's not that big of a deal really.

Daniel said...

Just so you all know, here in Leicester, England it has been tipping it down for the past two weeks and it's really REALLY annoying. We're praying for it to stop. It's supposed to be Summer by now.

Will your governor come over here to do a press release for us so we get some more sunshine? That would be so kind of him.

Patrick Sewell said...

Yeah, I don't really know what I'm talking about...
