Bloggin’ J.C. (3)

So I was heading for Jerusalem one Sunday. That was a big ville at the time, the biggest, and I reckoned I could do some heavy influencing, and get a lot more followers. I sent a couple of my crew ahead to get a donkey for me to ride in on. Let’s face it, a big warhorse or a chariot would have got me a bad rep.

Well I gotta tell ya, they came back with the scrawniest-looking donkey I had ever seen. When I sat on the thing, I had to lift my legs up to stop my sandals scraping on the dirt. That old donkey walked so slow, it was like we were standing still. But as I went through the city gates, the crowd were pleased to see me on such a humble ride, just as I guessed they would be.

In fact they were so pleased to see me, they threw palm fronds in my path. I was worried that my sad little steed might slip on one, but he got me through. After some speechifying, I was getting kinda hungry. I told the guys to rustle up some grub, and gave a nod to the worn-out donkey, accompanied by a knowing wink.

They got the message, and we were soon eating a tasty meat stew with some nice flatbread to wipe up the gravy.

It may not have been much of nag to ride on, but that donkey sure made good eating.

Back soon. Peace and love y’all.

      1. I understand their concern. They feel that we are taking too much liberty but having been raised as a Hindu, I had been used to such jokes about dieties. The religious intolerance in India is a recent problem.

  1. Interesting to think what kind of a blogger he would have made. It reminds me of a very memorable patient of mine who once, during a ward round, wondered what take-away J.C. might have preferred, Indian or Chinese. Enjoy the week, Pete.

  2. Pete, that was a surprise post. I just started following you, through Jack Eason’s blog. I’m bowled over by how many followers you have, 8,800 something. Yikes! I’m happy and can’t keep up with 848! But, then I know any number over 25-50 in a day is impossible. Anyway, I love your music related posts. ๐Ÿ“šChristine

      1. I actually thought so, but the number is impressive. You are very popular. Thanks for the music link. Iโ€™m trying to set a time for my next book. Thought the 1970s & music would work as the main character was a backup singer for Janis Joplin, and I was a friend of her lead guitar, James Gurley. Janisโ€™s death was in 1970. The main character gets back into singing solo because of her connection with Janis. Iโ€™ll check out your music selections! ๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŽถChristine

          1. The power of Janis. Actually, the main character in the book in progress belts out โ€œLittle Girl Blue,โ€ feeling the same way Janis did. People said that Janis was singing to herself, and look what happened a year later! She overdosed & died. The main character in the book is at a crossroads singing it. ๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŽถChristine

    1. Just an alternative view of what Jesus might have been up to, Stevie. After all, we only really have the King James version as a guide, and that was written in 1611. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.
