Stocking Up...

... God's Own fireworks stand.  The sign is partially obscured, but it reads "Supporting Trinity Assembly of God."

"Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it."
(Proverbs 22:6 ESV)

All y'all who are more familiar with scripture than I should feel free to suggest something more appropriate.


  1. Heh. I hope God keepos His own fireworks away from the Gulf!

  2. Pick up thee boxes less they obscure your store frontage.


  3. I once saw a church sign that said "turn or burn." It would be appropriate for a fireworks stand.

  4. Buck, it will be hard to beat your scripture reference.

    But, I'll go with "Withhold not correction from a child: for if thou strike him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and deliver his soul from hell." (Proverbs 23:13-14)

    Daddy took that one to heart once when me and my older brother, and a couple of our buddies set the cedar shake roof on fire with errant bottle rockets.

    As to the Assemblies of God folks selling fireworks to raise money. Well, I can tell you from experience, it beats the hell out of their chicken dinner fund raisers.

    Just sayin'...

  5. Andy,
    Been there. Done that. Dad used a GI cotton weave belt. OWWWWWWWWWW!

  6. Those things are illegal here in Taxsachusetts...

    BTW: There was a recall on some fireworks announced today...

  7. Moogie: I hear that.

    Small-Tee: Heh.

    Daph and Lou: Yep!

    Andy and Glenn: My Ol' Man wasn't religious but he sure as HELL bought into that "spare the rod, spoil the child" shit.

    Matt: Thanks for the link, and sorry about your deprivation.

  8. "And Jonathan gave his artillery unto his lad, and said unto him, 'Go, carry them to the city.'" - 1 Samuel 20:40

  9. Mount Sinai was covered with smoke, because the LORD descended on it in fire. The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, the whole mountain trembled violently,
    Exodus 19:17-19

  10. "And when the One spoke about the oil spewing forth, fire came from his nostrils as he sayeth, 'Ima lookin for somea ass to bust.' And people all over the land trembled with fear. But that sly BP rabbit, he just smileth. He thinketh, 'Ima just get me some fireworks and taken em up to DC and see whose ass gets kicked.'"

    From the 1st Book of Hussein, Barack Gospel.

    Sorry Buck. My mood got the best of me.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
