Lisa's July E-letter.

We received Lisa's exclusive July e-letter yesterday. Here's her main message in one delicious bite:

I love summer! I love the opportunities it brings. Camps, long, lazy days, family vacations, and afternoons for cleaning out the garage and closets. Summer is the busiest time and the slowest time of the year for our family. I like that. My children have attended quite a few different church camps this summer, either as campers or counselors. While they are busy, I've been busy writing my new Scrapbook Bible Study. Then there are days when we all sleep in, scrounge around in the fridge for food, tackle a summer project and then lay around on the Lazyboy couch watching the last season of "24" together. (All indoors, of course, since it is July in Texas!) I sure hope you are finding a handful of days to get those summer projects finished and even more days doing absolutely nothing.

We love summer, too, Lisa. More, we love this letter. Following Lisa's lead of keeping it simple, we'll tell you why:

1.) More with the children going to camps, camps, camps. Frankly, she's beginning to sound a little like Hitler to us. Kidding! Sheesh. We know Lisa loves her kids.

2.) Scrapbook Bible Study. Only Lisa Whelchel can so successfully put three of our least favorite words together to form one giant-mega-super word bomb. It is truly astonishing.

3.) Lazyboy. Cheers for the very Whelchelistic brand-name mention. Jeers for the misspelling. Lisa, if you can spell "Chick-fil-A," we expect you to know how to spell "La-Z-Boy."

4.) 24????? That's a violent show, Lisa. Nothing like what we'd expect you to be showing the kids. You know, there was this one show back in the '80s. It had this theme song that began "You take the good, you take the bad..." We think that would be a much more appropriate show for children. We watched that show, and look at us! Gay, atheistic and 5'4". Quite the mensch if we do say so ourselves.

There's more to her e-letter, but it has to do with "What God Is Teaching Me." If Lisa Whelchel's God has taught us anything, it's not to pay attention to her when she talks about what God is teaching her. There's also some recommendations, one of her books in Spanish, some lecture dates, etc. In other words letter, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

However, we'd be loath to just leave you on such an anticlimactic note. So, please enjoy this link to Lisa's scrapbooking page. She's just added her 1994–1995 scrapbook, and it's a doozy. Well, the first 10 pages are. The pills kicked in after that, and we were forced to take a raincheck on the rest.

Have a good weekend, friends. We'll be back next week with a new Coffee Talk Companion.

Oh look, Lisa copulated at least three times! I wonder what Bible verse she chanted during each event?

According to the 94-95 scrapbook, Daddy won the bubble-blowing contest. No surprise.

I thought it was really funny that she is so excited that Creative Correction is now available in Spanish!! And those people know their hot sauce!

Nice job - I don't feel so alone now.
