Dr. John

I was asked to participate in a roast for Dr. John. To tell the truth I don’t really know how to proceed. How does one roast such an incredibly nice man? What could I possibly say to poke fun at such an upstanding citizen of not just one community, but three?

To the people of Crystal Falls he is their beloved Pastor, now retired, but ever an inspiration and a part of their past, present and future, whether he is there in person or not. To the people of Pigeon Falls he is Dr. Fortress, the bringer of the railroad and giver of life. To those of us who live with him here on the net he is inspiration and encouragement. He is also a pastor and a friend. Society might label him retired, but he has never stopped serving God.

Now how could I possibly make fun of that? I mean, so what if he believes in dragons and talking white rabbits? So what if he confuses mailing labels and sends packages to the wrong places? So what if he lives in a make believe town, terrorizes phone solicitors, and adopts dogs for other people? Does that make him odd?

Well, yes. But is that any reason to make fun of him?

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.

    i didn’t know about the mailing packages to wrong addresses..ahh, they are both so sweet..that is so cute.

    Here is to all of us who are Blessed to have come together under his guidance. i met you through him and through you, i have met Cindra and Brooke and how great is that.

  2. Now I don’t think you’ve listed a single thing that makes Dr. John (or anyone else) odd – all sounds fairly normal to me! 🙂
