Hello! Happy Monday! It’s a picture frame. The Purging Lutheran’s home has four pictures of his family on walls throughout The Gatwick Compound. It’s not pride or embarrassment that causes this but rather a reliance on memories, faulty as they may be, but that’s where the fun is, trying to connect family history without documentation. It’s possible that I may be repeating my self but did you ever wonder how many pictures have ever been taken? Sure you have. You think about it all the time. Remember when you missed the turnoff to your brother-in-law’s home because you tried counting all the pictures ever taken in the entire history of man? Of course you remember. You missed a golf game set up by ‘unknown agents’ for your birthday. Or when you had to return the keg to the liquor store because your no good brother-in-law never showed up to his surprise birthday party but because you were counting all the pictures ever taken by mankind you left the nozzle on your kitchen counter and you had to make an extra trip before you get your deposit back? Yes, you remember because you were going to take him golfing after swilling ten gallons of beer. Desire for knowledge frequently hinders the pace and order of ordinary life. But back to our original question. Just how many pictures have ever been taken since the beginning? Answers vary. A study released in 2011 noted that 3,500,000,000,000 (that’s ‘trillion’, Sam) pictures had ever been taken up to that point. A study released in 2015 approximated that 3,500,000,000,000 (look familiar?) pictures had ever been taken up to that point. Even if one of those numbers is right or even off by one trillion, that’s still a LOT of pictures taken. Now you can rest and relax.
If you’re wondering what item might have been applied to the glue on the frame above, it only makes sense that there were two teen-aged giraffes who got grossed out by mom’s and dad’s public show of affection and left the scene.
Exodus 20:4-6 No carved gods of any size, shape, or form of anything whatever, whether of things that fly or walk or swim. Don’t bow down to them and don’t serve them because I am God, your God, and I’m a most jealous God, punishing the children for any sins their parents pass on to them to the third, and yes, even to the fourth generation of those who hate me. But I’m unswervingly loyal to the thousands who love me and keep my commandments.
