Calling all readers !!! Calling all readers !!!

Something really strange happened to me the other day as I came back home from the shops. I parked my car in front of our house as usual and noticed that sitting there on an easy chair in my front garden was a man eating doughnuts.

I'm not sure what you would do in this situation, dear readers. Would you ignore him and get in the house? Would you ask him to leave? Reason with him perhaps; or ask him what's going on. He is after all tresspassing on your property. Would you call the police perhaps?

I approached him calmly and asked: "Why are you eating doughnuts in my front garden?"

He replied: "Because the shop ran out of cookies. I would have preferred cookies really. Do you have any?"

Of course I did not have any cookies, and neither would I have offered him any if I had them. I did not reply and entered the house to cool off and think about what to do next. I shut the door behind me and soon realised that the house was empty. Everyone had gone out. A quick check all round comfirmed that no one had entered the house, and there had been no break-in. It was just a man sitting on a chair in my front garden eating doughnuts.

I looked surreptitiously through the curtains and I saw the man get up from his folding chair; pick it up, go out from my front gate and leave down the street towards the left.

I don't know why, habit I suppose, or human nature, but I quickly got out of the house. Looked at the spot where he was sitting to make sure he was not there; and then went to the gate and looked down the street to make sure he was walking away with his chair in his hand.

I got back in the house and for the next half hour or so I kept checking through the curtains to see if he was back. I have not seen him since.

Which is why I am now asking you for some advice.

This Blog has been going on since 2009; and for the last six years or so I have included posts about various Christian issues, short stories about Father Ignatius, a character from my first book "VISIONS", (sorry couldn't resist the temptation to advertise - you can read more about my books on the right-hand column of this post and in the tabs at the top).

As I was saying ... this Blog has featured various Christian posts and Father Ignatius stories as well as humourous articles every  now and then to entertain you and keep you returning here. For which I am very grateful, by the way. Without you, I'd be writing to myself wouldn't I?

So I now need your advice please.

What would you like to see and read on this Blog? More Christian posts debating various issues? More Father Ignatius or humourous stories? Guest spots perhaps where I invite someone or other to write here. Famous people like ... oh ... I don't know!

Would you like more book promotions and give-aways?

How about videos? More generic You Tube videos with meaningful songs, or do you prefer videos made by myself like the ones in the tab above? Or none at all perhaps?

Would you be interested in deep philosophical or theological debates like "Why did God who created the whole universe and all that's in it needed a spare rib from Adam to create Eve?" "How did Noah manage to get two of each species in a boat without them fighting each other? How did he manage to clean all the deposits left by the animals after such a long period afloat? And why did he bother to save the wasps, and other annoying insects like mosquitoes?"

These and many other deep questions can be discussed here if you wish. Like, "Why is it that Donald Duck is always seen wearing just a jacket; yet when he comes out of the bath or shower he has a towel wrapped round his lower regions?"

Perhaps there are new features you'd like to see in this Blog? Or something old you'd like to see brought back - like my History series or my Art critiques? If so, tell me about it.

I look forward to your suggestions so that together we can make this Blog really worth reading.

Thank you and God bless.

  1. Just be you usual charming, witty self Victor. I don't comment often because sometimes I have a hard time being witty or urbane. If I could say, "Yeah, Ok, that's nice" without it sounding flippant or snarky I would. Nothing worse than a Snarky Sparky you know. *lol* Anyway, I do enjoy your blog no matter what the topic. Hope your day is blessed over there across the pond. ~:)

    1. I doubt you can ever be snarky, Sparky. Just say anything that's on your mind; even if it's just "Hello". It's great to have you here.

      God bless you and yours.

      God bless.

  3. Any or all---LOVE to read your written word, Friend! Will keep coming back--and there is a little intrigue in never knowing "What will Victor say today?"

    Blessings!

    1. The thing is, Lulu. I don't want to offer you doughnuts if you'd rather have cookies or cake. That's why I'm asking. I'd even have triangular cheese and cucumber sandwiches, with the crust cut off, and a cup of Earl Grey tea if you wish. It's what posh English people have, don't you know ... what?

      God bless.

    1. Many thanx for your kind words, Cathy. It seems there will be very little change to this Blog. I was checking whether my readers prefer something else rather than doughnuts. I really treasure your many returns and comments here; as I do all other comments.

      Not many people know this. I actually pray for all who comment here.

      God bless.

I PRAY FOR ALL WHO COMMENT HERE.

God bless you.
