100 Word Catholic Fan Fiction: An Unexpected Guest

The monastic cell door creaked as the white gloved hand opened it. Yolanda saw a hooded figure kneeling in prayer before an image of the Divine Mercy, As they entered a voice ancient & weak seeped from his cowl.

“Has the angel of death finally remembered me? I am ready”

“I bring not death friend Anastasius” replied the stranger, “but a penitent seeking absolution.”

The priest turned smiling melting away years, his eyes alight: “It has been many decades since I’ve confessed a hero.” Yolanda watched awestruck as new life seemed to gush into the holy venerable face. “Come child.”


Previously, the answer. Next, a confusing price.

Everything fun has been canceled and it’s getting everyone down

Normally summers are packed full of fun events for me, so much so that I rarely have a free weekend between the beginning of June and the end of September.  This year has been the exact opposite, every event I usually attend except for one was canceled, and that was the Ham Radio Field Day event I organized. 

Two of the biggest events I attend every year are agricultural fairs. One is in Brooklyn Connecticut and the other one is in Woodstock Connecticut.  This year they were cancelled along with just about every fair.  I won’t get to pig out on fried dough, sausage grinders, giant donuts, and so much more.  Usually the Woodstock Fair has great concerts, horse pulls, midway rides, and so much more I usually enjoy.  Not this year.  So many people are going to miss out on so much fun, which they really need.  So many local businesses and traveling vendors rely on the fairs for so much yearly income.  They will sorely miss all of that income.  Even the Big E has been cancelled.

Every since I was four years old my family and I belonged to a fife and drum corp.  All summer long we would travel around southern New England attending fife and drum musters.   If you have never attended one I highly recommend doing to. It is a truly enjoyable way to experience history and a lot of great music.  This year all of the musters have been canceled.  They usually draw many hundreds, if not thousands, of spectators along with many dozens of fife and drum corps.

This year marks the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims landing in Plymouth.  I was looking forward to attending all of the festivities starting with the Mayflower sailing from Mystic Seaport up until the last event.  All of this has been scaled back or cancelled completely.  I was planning on taking bus trips to the events since I live so far away and traffic would have been a nightmare because of the crowds.  All of the bus trips have been cancelled.

These cancellations are not just affecting me,  they are affecting all of my neighbors, just about everyone in this country, and all across the globe.  These cancellations are having a very negative impact on my frame of mind.  They are really getting me down.  I know I am far from alone.  We all need fun events, especially if they are so much fun we look forward to them all year round.  These events are not cancelled because of the Coronavirus pandemic.  They are being cancelled because of government over reaction to the Coronavirus and by media coverage of the pandemic that has crossed over to hysteria,  How much longer the cancellations will go on is unknown.  Most likely they will go on until we stand up and say enough.

Why POTUS Goodyear Fight Matters

Harvey: You HIT me!

Captain Troop: Now you just sit there and think about it.

Captains Courageous: 1937

Batman: No Joker. You’re playing the wrong game. The old game. Tonight you’re taking no hostages. Tonight I’m taking no prisoners.

There are a lot of people on the left (and in NeverTrump) who are salivating over the President taking on Goodyear Tire.

That’s because the left is reactive and not stratigic. They see a chance at a short term gain and are jumping at it.

They’ve missed the entire point of what the President did.

If the President had just tweeted and said nothing else then it might be a minor story.

But when the press secretary was asked about this yesterday, the White House, didn’t spin, didn’t back down, they Doubled down!

And when the president was asked about it later, he didn’t budge:

“I would be very much in favor if people don’t want to buy there,” Mr. Trump told reporters at a White House briefing Wednesday, adding, “I think it’s disgraceful that they did this.”

Asked whether he’d be willing to swap out the Goodyear tires on the presidential limousine, Mr. Trump responded, “Yeah, I would do that. I would, I would swap them out, based on what I heard. We’ll see what happens. Look. you’re going to have a lot of people not wanting to buy that product anymore. And they’ll buy from a competitor, made in the USA, okay?”

And the result. Goodyear stock was down 3% and it’s reported that Goodyear dealers aren’t happy about what the company did.

What does this mean? It mean that the next time a BLM group or a consulting firm or a HR department full of woke leftist decide to tell a company to pony up, give in or to retrain their workforce, instead of instantly giving in or paying off and they have in the past they now know that they do, they are just one tweet away from slicing their customer base by tens of millions.

This is why we conservatives can’t spare this man: HE FIGHTS!

The best part? Donald Trump will still retain that power after January of 2025

The old rules are gone the days of fighting back have begun!
