My fascination with fire.. Ive always been fascinated with fire, since I was a young child. This is a funny, or not so funny story. I guess it's a strange kind of a warning, "don't play with matches".
It was his turn to light the fire and he did. I wanted my fire to get the biggest, so I let it go. He said, "put it out!" I said, "no no, not
yet!" He said, "PUT IT OUT!" I said, "not yet!, not yet!" I let it get
real big. The flames were about 3 feet high, I remember them hitting
the roof of the vehicle, that was when I started hitting it with the 2
x 4 that We used to extinguish the previous fires.: - )

The city was fairly well structured though, with lots of people. As
soon as I crossed the bridge and entered the gates of the city, I was
suddenly enthralled by hoards of people. One could barley walk with out
people bouncing off of them and the instant that they spotted that I
was an American off the ship, they flocked to me like bees to honey.
mostly kidds and I say kidds for a reason. they were like pestering
little goats. They would follow me everywhere and beg for pesos.

A story of my life.. Just what exactly is a "real" friend anyway?. for two years we hung out together everyday, we did everything together, we were best friends..
What is a “friend” anyway? Are
my work mates my friends? I guess! The time that we spend with each
other, is a lot. Eight to ten hours a day, we are all entangled in the
same struggles. All working towards the same goal, to get that next job
out. Superficial friends at best! We are all busy doing our jobs, not much time for personalizing with one another.......and
after work? The stresses of life keep us occupied for the most part.
Have to go to the store, and take the kids to practice, stop by.

Taylor was barely a year old and I was pregnant again. (I wanted four kids, before I married Andrew. I'd had my tubes tied after Aaliah, was that divine inspiration or intuition? Whichever one it was, Thank God for it!) I don’t know that I ever really sat down and thought about being pregnant again so soon. I did have a 1 year-old, actually he was around 1 1/2. I only know that I was happy “in the family way.” I’ve heard a lot of women remark that they feel the happiest when they’re pregnant. I.

It has local interest stories about people and places from somewhere in East Anglia. Today we’ve had three surprising stories, not from East Anglia, but from the Bible.
