The Cold, Hard .Facts of Life Some of our folks remember, following my stories now a number of years, realize that there's three things that I don't write about. That's poli- tics, denominations and money. I personally think that all three of them will corrupt you. However, after this winter that we have gone through, I don't know how anyone can believe in Mr. A1 Gore's global warming, I remember back in 1948, on Christmas Day, I hunt- ed all day wearing just a t- shirt. Probably in the high 70's that day. I remember in 1975, on Christmas Day, there was an Easter lily blooming beside of Mrs. Hazel Osborne's sidewalk. I remember 1977, it was 26 below 0. So it appears to me like if there has been any such a thing as global warming, it is over and gone. The news reporters just made a statement a few days ago that this winter, nation- wide, had been the coldest winter that had ever been since they started keeping record. I personally think that there's a little family that consists of three brothers. One of them is Santa Claus, the other one is the tooth fairy and the baby one is global warm- ing. Neither do I believe that God, in the beginning, put that moon up there to control the tides, the weather, and many other subjects that it takes care of. I believe He done that, but I certainly don't believe that He turned the weather situation over to the groundhog. However, I believe God still controls the universe and there has never been a February 2nd that some- where in this United States of America that the sun didn't shine that day. Well, some say if the groundhog sees his shadow, we have six weeks of bad weather. I remember 1946 when I was a child, me and my dad was hauling in hay because it was snowing that day and we didn't have nobody to tell us hOw much was going to fall. But we knew that we need- ed to get some hay in the barn. We looked across the field and there was a groundhog dragging through the snow that was about 8 inches deep. I went St. Paul and set a trap for him, th caught him on the 26 day of March. Well, that was the worst winter as a whole that I can ever remember seeing when according to Mr. Groundhog it should have been the other way. We should have had six weeks of fair weather, then come spring. If you believe in any, or all of these things, you and I will still get along because the Holy Bible said one may esteemeth one day above another,. another esteemeth every- day alike, but let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. of God
