Tom's Journal

My dog usually gets me up in the morning because he needs to go outside after an 8 hour wait. His fav. method to wake me up is to put his cold, wet nose on my bare arm that hangs out the side of the bed-- and it works! There is a lot of care, hard work and expense in keeping a large dog like Deuce- the Rottweiler, but the rewards are great and valuable. Sharon claims that the dog saved my life a few times when I quit breathing from 'Sleep Apnea' in the past, and Deuce has even heard Sharon call from the nursing home on the answering machine and then proceeded to wake me up-- and that worked too. He sees and hears better than his old master Tom, and cleans the carpet when old Soldier Tom drops a few food crumbs or a bone. We know how to make our own dog food from rice and ground beef-- when there has been a 're-call' of tainted 'Chinese dog food'-- what a shame that we are 'hooked' on Chinese products that are honestly inferior and sometimes poisonous --compared to the USA's goods.

But talk about food, we can produce more than enough except that we foolishly convert our good grain into gasoline, and we are ALREADY seeing rising food costs in the grocery stores right now! And it's ALL POLITICAL!! Both political parties are responsible, and the beat goes on with many other nations starving. And then we feed other nations who actually hate us and wish us dead! As I have said many times on this humble blog-- the Bible plainly prophetically says that all these things WILL happen but the 'Wisdom of THIS world is foolishness with God.'

The preacher at church yesterday did a good job in explaining the RAPTURE -- just read the whole 2nd chapter of 2nd Thessalonians. I like the verse, 11: "And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie." In other words, God has already judged them to be wicked and allows them to be blinded in their own stupidity! There will be utter chaos, panic, fear and disorganization on earth as things like starvation and famine grip the earth. And BTW--by the way-- more folks will lose their houses now because the price of gas will force their already tired fingers holding on the last rung in the ladder of home ownership. I can't wait to see the high stepping, proud, finicky, people who normally turn up their noses at food they don't care for-- now grubbing for the skins of potatoes they once threw away as garbage! IMHO, that is where and when the combat Veterans will have a slight edge. But even many 'Christians' will be reminded that they have been lulled into a fairy tale world of wealth and plenty --of wasting food all the time! I was taught that wasting food was a serious sin when I was a young boy. And I strongly suggest that all my friends invest in a veggie garden if they possibly can this year!! You can even use 5 gallon buckets to grow tomatoes, etc. Do the research over the Internet and make a plan now!

Folks, I have been blessed to receive a fine packet of Bible Tracts, from Bible Tracts, Inc.,--Bloomington, IL., called "We're Grateful." It's about how honored and special combat Vets are for serving their country, and rightfully so-- BUT they are still NOT guaranteed a place in heaven just for their brave, fine, heroic 'works' and sacrifices on earth! They need to be Saved too! I can't wait to give/ pass these timely Tracts to many Veterans that I see every day, and at the Milwaukee VAMC! I love and respect my brother Veterans a lot, and have made them my prime 'targets' for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, so that they can enjoy eternity in heaven with the Lord! [They have already been thru hell...] This is MY GIFT TO THEM. I will try to scan one for you guys. Tract #6600.

Warm Regards,
Tom Schuckman

Yes! It is expensive to have our furry friend Sam too but we love him and treat him well;) And yes I grew fine tomatoes and even peppers, herbs and strawberries in containers last year. I used a couple of the " Topsy Turvey" planters but my containers did better. Once the tomatoes start growing the weight is too much in the upside down planters. My containers and my flowers did great in large pots with good drainage, tomato cages that Bill made, lots of watering and a bit of fertilizer now and again. Yes I can't wait for warmer drier weather. Hope all us well with you!
