Hello from Provo Utah
Jan 17th, 2020 at 12:24am
 
So lets see how to introduce myself. When I was a kid I hated Sunday school until the teacher told the story of David and Goliath. I went home and my dad helped me cut up one of his old leather work boots to make a sling. Well I did just what the  Sunday school teacher said and you know what happened. Yep, the rock went everywhere but to the target. I put the sling away until I was 11 years old. I spent my free time slinging stone until I could hit my target almost every time (a 50 gal drum out to about 25-30 yards).  So now I'm old and my back a shoulders hurt and I just completed braiding a sling. I hope I can make it work for me.  When I was younger I wanted to go to one of the slinging competitions across the pond; however, that did not work out but I did organized a few slinging competition with youth groups. A couple of them got pretty good too!

“My final hour is at hand. We face an enemy more numerous and cunning than the world has yet seen. Remember your training, and do not fear the hordes of Judas. I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES!  Aim for the eyes! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none!“  -Jesus the Noodler
