Way ahead of you, Spell. Considering a third at this point.

Too late for coffee - I'd not get to sleep in four hours time.

Isn't every hour the witching hour for you?

You better hope her broom doesn't have overdrive. She might get to you before you can safely flee.

There's a man in this estate who I've known for about thirty years.  We're friendly enough, and talk when we meet at the shops or elsewhere.  He's a shy and somewhat diffident chap, definitely an introvert.  But, like a lot of us, he can talk up a storm when he gets going on his specialist subjects.  We have a shared interest in writing.

Yesterday I discovered he's a Jehova's Witness, and that was only because his wife, who is clearly a bit more evangelical than him, told me, and asked if I was interested in talking about The Bible.  I told her not really, that I live a largely secular life.  I didn't want to trouble them with being an Odinist and stuff like that.  Religion is a private business unless you choose to make an issue of it.

I borrowed one of Mum's lines.  "I haven't got to my age without forming definite opinions and ideas of my own, but I prefer not to discuss them.  My ways aren't your ways."

She shot back a classical open ended question, "What do you mean by our ways?"

Matey shot her a look and she subsided a bit.  "I'm just trying to understand."

"Let it go." He advised gently.

"Okay."

So we went back to general chat about life and mutual aquaintances.

But think about this....  Thirty years and never once a hint of his being a Witness.  That's the kind of Witness I approve of.  Solid in their own beliefs, but not driven to force it on others.

When I think back over my life I've known, and worked with, several like this who were happy to accept the "We'll be fine as long as you don't 'God' me."   All decent lads and lasses who seemed much happier than the door-knocker brigade everyone knows.

SHE is the Jehovah's Witness. He is the husband who goes along for most of the ride.

At least, that's how I would interpret this.

When you left, you should have said, "I need to hurry home. It's time to sacrifice that goat."

Thirty years ago I would have been tempted, just for the hell of it ;-)  But now I tend to think 'Each to his own' as long as they don't actively interfere with me.

One of my oldest friends is a pagan and he still actively goes out of his way to bait and torment Christians.  I've never really understood why.

They seem to have slowed down on their door knocking. Maybe they have me on the no go list too.
