ANCIENT PROVERB ABOUT DREAM CRUSHERS

For those of you who have followed the blog for a while, last March, I wrote a funny blog entry called, “Dream Crushers” about the spouses in our lives (or our hunting companion’s) who sometimes put the kibosh on our collective sporting pursuits. While many readers loved the story, some people (they who must not be named) did not think it was funny–at all. Don’t bother trying to find this story in the archives as I deleted it to keep the peace. I even went as far as to publish a public apology (which was also deleted after the storm has passed). Sorry if you missed it!

I was reading the Bible tonight and came across an interesting scripture that touched upon this very issue. While I have no desire to reopen the previous wounds, I simply could not resist the temptation to share this passage:

It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.

(Proverbs 21:19).

Amen to that! Now we know for certain that since biblical times, mankind has–pursuant to the instruction of their leaders–sought refuge in the great outdoors from angry members of the fairer sex. It’s official! Maybe we should make Brad Paisley’s “I’m Gonna Miss Her” an official church hymn. Can you imagine your church choir singing “. . . Looky there, I’ve got a bite”?

(Of course, this is all in fun. To any who are offended, my apologies in advance. To all who can relate, I’ll see you in the woods, on the river . . . or in the dog house!)

    I like the first two, the woods or the river but I spend more time in the third. Naw I am kidding. Great post. If I posted this and my wife saw it it would be worse than the dog houseregardsDan

  3. Andy, you must be nuts! Leave this sleeping dog alone. All was quiet on the home front. When you were a kid did you get a kick out of poking a hornet's nest to get a reaction!!! There is a masochistic strike in you somewhere. The Bible is full of truths, some best left for private contemplation. Grin.Oh, Happy Thanksgiving!! I wish I could be with you and Shawn in Idaho. I miss you.
