Anyone got a Slingshot?

By

David & Goliath - Mel Peterson - The Naked BloggerAnyone got a slingshot?  Remember that cool gadget we played with as kids, that could take out a neighbor's window, inflict a nasty sting in the rear, and set our enemies running for the hills just at the mere sight of it in our hands?  That tiny little thing could fling some major damage.

It's been a challenging year... and it's got me thinking of an Old Testament story of David and Goliath... you may have read it as a kid.  The giant Goliath taunted the Israelites daily with threats and insults.  Young David (future King of Israel) offered to fight Goliath on behalf of his people.  Dressed in a simple tunic, carrying his shepherd's staff, along with his slingshot and a pouch full of stones, David fired one rock from his sling at the giant and took out Goliath in one fell swoop.

Oh to be young and fearless again... and it goes without saying... BIG things come in small packages. 

Anyone got a slingshot?

Donna ~ You'd have to read a few of my previous posts to understand my sick humor behind this post... I've been slaying dragons and guarding the moat and drawbridge... it's a daunting task... but someone's gotta do it!

Brian ~ My slingshot is reserved for the most vile of sorts... and with a little help from the Almighty, I suspect we could take down one taunting Giant with a fling of a stone ;)))

Mel - I've been looking for your blog for weeks now and finally I went down my subscribers list very slowly and realized you changed your profile photo! Anyway, now I know! This is a particularly hard weekend for us and I can relate to having a really bad year. We'll have a lot to talk about GF and I can't wait to see you! Now, I'm going to look through your other posts! Hope you're enjoying this Labor Day weekend!

Keep one under my pillow. Better than a 357 any olde day. Keeps the flickers at play away from my eaves. Keeps the squirrels at bay away from the humming bird feed. Being such the great shot I am, have hit nothing thus a lousy David I would be. Always nice to stop by and catch up, cheers cvc
