    And such lovely images of Texas you take with you! You did miss out on pics of a porn palace that balances out a mega-church… But the Double Shot is a wonderful memory for you to carry along.

    I think this may be one of the best photo sets you’ve posted to date! This collection of photos should be part of a Texas Dept of Tourism brochure. Awesome!

    OK . . . couldn’t resist the temptation to research the bible reference . . . can’t see in this where Jesus is against gay marriage:

    Matthew 19

    1 When Jesus had finished saying these things, he left Galilee and went into the region of Judea to the other side of the Jordan. 2 Large crowds followed him, and he healed them there.
    3 Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?”

    4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’[a] 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’[b]? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

    7 “Why then,” they asked, “did Moses command that a man give his wife a certificate of divorce and send her away?”

    8 Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. 9 I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”

    10 The disciples said to him, “If this is the situation between a husband and wife, it is better not to marry.”

    11 Jesus replied, “Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given. 12 For there are eunuchs who were born that way, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by others—and there are those who choose to live like eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.”

    Interesting how divorce is equated to adultery . . . how many church people are divorced and remarried? They don’t quote this much on the roadside . . . Oh, and that thing about eunuchs! Anyway the education session is closed for now . . . I like the BBQ on butcher paper photo best!

    Credit–some of these photos are from Julie’s iPhone. She’s got a great iEye! Having no cell phone, I am still amazed at the power of an iPhone. Those friends who had them could take a photo, put it on FB and email it to me within seconds. We don’t get many photos on FB because it is such a pain to do it old school!

    And yes, Uncle Bob, I do believe God would be happier if this guy would spend his free time helping, not judging, others!

    I should say I am amazed at the capabilities of a web-enabled smart phone. Though the iPhone entertains Bode better at a coffee shop (thanks, Dina!)
