Filter Through Life


Code Talkers

Legacy Fellowship is not quite big enough to support a paid staff so we all volunteer our time and work full-time jobs as well.  I sell home and commercial security systems for a large company.  Safety and the feeling it provides is priceless (of course, if you live in the Austin area and you email me, I can provide it quite reasonably).

 

My Dad is a retired Houston Police Officer of 22 years.  His idea of home security is a little different.  He gave me a home security system last week in the form of a 4” blue steel Ruger GP-100 .357 Magnum.

 

So, I was cleaning my new home security device and I thought, “You know, it would be kind of cool if someone called me while I am cleaning my gun and asked me what I am doing.”  About two minutes later Chad called me and asked, “Hey man, what are you doing?”

 

“Cleaning my gun,” I exclaimed.

 

“Cleaning your gun?”

 

“Yes, cleaning my gun.”

 

Rebecca (Chad’s wife), sounding somewhat concerned, somewhat sarcastic, asks, “Uhhh, do you need to call him back?” 

 

I reply, “What?  No, it’s cool.  I have you on speaker.”

 

“Oh, so ‘cleaning my gun’ isn’t code for something else then?”

 

“No, but that would have be a good one.”
