Mr. T, Kristina Country, Dad’s Day, Dinosaurs


Hey Fools – I’m back!

I’ve agreed to offer my commentary on the Westminster Shorter Catechism and its in yo best interest to pay attention, sucka!


Q: What is the chief end of man?

A: Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him for ever.

The first thing you might ask T is – “What does chief end mean?” Ask me a hard question, fool! The chief end is our main desire in life. That thing that all the souls long after and aim towards. For example, my chief end is to glorify God and enjoy him forever, but my second chief end is hurl ninjas over my head and into various kinds of shelving, sucka.

Chuckin’ fools into inanimate objects or their friends brings T to his second point: Glorifying God is our chief end, but we also got our jobs and family too. We gotta put food on the table for all the little T’s running around – (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12) but even in doing that, we need to be glorifying God first – 1 Corinthians 10:31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

Why do we do everything to the glory of God? Because he created you, fool! The end, sucka!

As seen on Jonspach, he talks about milk but I don’t understand why!

Also from the Home Engineer front:

My son has never liked to go to summer camps, don’t know why, he thinks he won’t have fun, so he attends Kristina Camp.

Where I pretty much just make him do chores, make up work for him to do, and now this year, volunteering at the Humane Society.


For Father’s Day, my son wrote this:

He says ‘ouch’ a lot and that makes me feel stronger
He is funny
He is an animal lover
He takes good care of me
He sometimes goes against my mothers will to bring me joy
He gives attention whether it be to me or Anna
He takes me to movies and sometimes watches, other times sleeps
He wants the best for me and my brother


Yesterday we offered to take 6 puppies from the vet’s office  back to the humane society after they were altered.

When we get there, the tech brings out a huge kennel and says, are you sure you have enough room?

I was assuming she was speaking of the kennel fitting in the back of the car.

I said yeah, no problem, then she say hesitantly, ok, come back and help get the dogs.

We get back to the holding room and there are 6 4 month old puppies.


Huge dogs, lab and something else, dinosaur, I think.

We managed to get 3 in the kennel and three were loose, in. my. car.

Those of you who know me, know, you can’t even eat in my car, touch the windows, and we vacuum at least once a week.

we had puppies EVERYWHERE, son was holding one in the front seat and two were in the back, thank goodness the lady gave me a sheet for the seat.

Tip: don’t have food in the car when you transport 6 40 pound puppies, they WILL find the food.

It was in the front seat under son’s feet. Traffic was horrible. I called my hubby yelling, I have 6 40 LB puppies in my car, HELP!!!

I wish I would have had the camera. After that, we worked in the foster area and my son was socializing kitties {think, playing with them} and one tiny itty bitty kitty walked up his chest and kissed his cheek and ear, it was SO adorable.

So, today my son is vacuuming car and washing nose prints off my windows. The car smells like dog, yuck.

The things we do for love…..

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there, you mean more to your children than you know, love them, cherish them, pray for them.


Ps 89:26“He will cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.’ Ps 103:13Just as a father has compassion on {his} children, So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him. Pr 1:8Hear, my son, your father’s instruction And do not forsake your mother’s teaching; Pr 3:12For whom the LORD loves He reproves, Even as a father {corrects} the son in whom he delights. Pr 4:1Hear, {O} sons, the instruction of a father, And give attention that you may gain understanding, Pr 4:3When I was a son to my father, Tender and the only son in the sight of my mother, Pr 6:20My son, observe the commandment of your father And do not forsake the teaching of your mother; Pr 10:1The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son makes a father glad, But a foolish son is a grief to his mother. Pr 13:1A wise son {accepts his} father’s discipline, But a scoffer does not listen to rebuke. Pr 15:5 – A fool rejects his father’s discipline, But he who regards reproof is sensible. Pr 15:20A wise son makes a father glad, But a foolish man despises his mother. Pr 17:21He who sires a fool {does so} to his sorrow, And the father of a fool has no joy.

  1. I hope you asked before you put a picture of Jason’s birthday present on the internet, Kristina. His MIL’s pretty picky about who gets her designs. (Though word has it, her daughter hasn’t spoken to her since he hung it in the living room.) 😉

  2. I learned the Westminster just a little differently but liked it more:

    “The chief end and duty of man is to love God and enjoy Him forever.”

    Tell the boy “great poem.”

    One trip early on with our Golden to the vet we found out the hard way she gets car sick. The things we do for love.

  3. Kristina,

    The milk thing is an inside joke, just like 99% of all my jokes are. Were I to explain it, no one would think it to be funny.

    Also, I’m stealing your Mr. T stained glass logo to use as I continue to post through the WSC. 😛
