Thank you so much Yohanan.
You made Tender Reed happy.
The first 2 episodes of season 2, Jed is worried that granny is missing the hills cause she likes doctoring people and she can’t do it in Beverly Hills.
He pretends to be sick and let her doctor him so she can be happy. Mr. Drysdale comes over and hears about that from Elly May so he pretends to be sick too. He thought she might prescribe something and he can go to back to work. However, Jethrow ends up carrying him and putting him in bed next to Jed.
When Mr. Drysdale’s doctor finds out that he is ill at Jed’s house, he goes to check on him. Granny thinks he is coming for help too so he ends up in bed with the other 2.
Of course, Mr Drsydale who wants to keep the family happy, tells him to shut up and play along.
In the next episode, the doctor is furious about what happened and that granny ended up cutting some of his hair. He told Mr. Drysdale to make sure she never tries to practice medicine again or else he will go to the doctor’s board.
Granny to Jed: That mean doctor threatened me with a doctor’s board.
Jed: What’s a doctor’s board?
Granny: I don’t know, but it must be big. He said 4 doctors sit on it. Isn’t that right, Jethrow?
Jethrow: Yes, uncle Jed. I told him: ” you bring a board to my granny and I am going to bust it over your head, and I don’t care how many doctors are sitting on it.”
With people coming to our doors and threatening us with these shots, we need granny to fire at them and shout that her medicine is better.

I cracked up the other day when I saw this image of Jed playing the double neck guitar
I sure hope that Buddy Ebsen and Granny made heaven.
But after googling Buddy Ebsen … it looks like he was involved in the Knights Templar …
During his high school years, Ebsen became a member of John M. Cheney Chapter, Order of DeMolay. His involvement as a teenager led to his being recognized by DeMolay in adult life with the award of the Legion of Honor Degree, and later by induction into the DeMolay Alumni Hall of Fame. – Fair Use –
“Elly May” Donna Douglas was a born again Christian
written by Mark Long March 26, 2021
Donna Douglas will be forever beloved for playing Elly May Clampett on “The Beverly Hillbillies,” but her life was much more than this one role. Before, during, and after her Hollywood career, she was a devout Christian and was true to her faith and principles.
Douglas spoke with Alan Mercer in 2013 about how her faith sustained her when she first moved to New York City to be a model. “I made a commitment between me and God.” She added, “I was very simple and I loved Jesus. I believed with all my heart that if I did the best I could do, God would take care of me.”
From Louisiana to Hollywood
Douglas was born in Baton Rouge Parish in Louisiana and raised as a tomboy, fishing with her dad, and the only girl among all her cousins. She told Mercer, “See, I was getting ready for Jethro long before I ever met him!”
After a stint in New York before moving to Los Angeles, Douglas eventually landed on “The Beverly Hillbillies” and the rest was history. These were heady times, especially for a girl with no formal acting training, because it was the number one show on television for two of its nine seasons.
“God wants to see if what you say with your mouth, you mean with your heart. Anybody can talk it, but can you walk your talk? I didn’t have a background in acting, dancing or singing,” Douglas said. “When God sees that you mean what you say and you really are going to walk your talk, He takes over your life.”
The girl from Baton Rouge was now a star, and Douglas began hobnobbing with the famous and powerful. This included starring in “Frankie and Johnny” with Elvis Presley and watching golf with former President Dwight Eisenhower.
A Legacy of Faith
Douglas’ beliefs sustained her before and during “The Beverly Hillbillies,” and the same was true for life after acting. Despite periodic guest roles on television shows, she concentrated her efforts on bringing her Christian faith to others.
She explained: “My understanding has expanded. I don’t speak so much as religion but more as a commitment. I’m a Christian but I don’t have a particular label. I speak at all kinds of different churches. I love doing this. People always tell me they loved me as Elly, but they love what I’m doing now.”
Douglas frequently spoke to church youth groups, recorded several gospel albums, and wrote inspirational children’s books. In the 2013 interview below, she discusses the impact faith had on her life and how it let her help others.
Selling your soul to achieve fame and fortune is an old story. Douglas is proof, however, this doesn’t have to be the case. By remaining true to her Christian faith, she is an example of how to live a righteous life in and out of the public eye.

I was in DeMolay, Geri. I did pretty well, with a God-given gift of being able to commit dialogues, oaths, and speeches to memory, and it helped me with public speaking to crowds or gatherings without undue concern. My dad was in the Masons for a very long time, and rose in the ranks in a very small community in Colorado. About six months before he died, he had finally become a 32nd degree Mason.
My dad was also a believer in Jesus. Both he and my mother — who was one of the most Godly women I knew — raised my two older sisters and me faithfully and openly, diligently teaching, loving and modeling Jesus. The three of us frequently thank God for the heritage of a strong Godly family.
We didn’t attend a regular church during the few years when I was in DeMolay, because Dad, as a baritone soloist, sang all over the Denver area at church services, and we generally went along with him.
He had in mind for me to get into the AF&AM (Masons) on my 21st birthday, but I suspect the Lord had other ideas relative to my “Luciferian” involvement. Dad died unexpectedly at 53, and I wasn’t going to turn 21 for ten more months. So the idea for me to join stopped with him. Not that my dad was taken primarily to keep me out of the Masons, but as a side effect it was a very good thing. I think of Romans 8:28.
Honestly, Geri, one of the early appointments I intend to push Dad for, shortly after the Resurrection, is to sit down, just he and me, and reveal the few things I have found out in the last 10-15 years about the Masons / Luciferians. Then I’m gonna ask him, “Dad, what on earth were you thinking? Didn’t you ever see the foundations? What was it about for you, an honorable loving man?” Maybe without the threat of having his tongue cut out for revealing secrets up there, he’ll be forthcoming. I’m not sure what he’ll say, of if he will recall much, but I suspect a lot of his involvement was of a social nature with brothers and buddies.
Anyway, I suspect many individuals who rose in the world in fame or business, successfully used fraternal connections to at least get auditions or consideration for other opportunities, ones that would not have occurred without the fraternal affiliation. I’m not sure Buddy Epsen or any other Mason should thereby be expected to be missing from glory with us. How does that hymn go… “The vilest offender who truly believes, that moment from Jesus a pardon receives.”
PS – he had my sisters in Job’s Daughters too.
PPS – I am NOT defending Masonic “principles.”

Interesting Dan, I guess we go back to square one with a person’s individual heart and what they were putting their trust in and only God knows the heart. I recall this old man in our NJ church who would faithfully give out free “Our Daily Bread” devotional booklets to each family. He had a single missionary daughter who served in Bangladesh and yet he wore a masonic ring. Then I had a Christian next door neighbor and she said her mother was involved in the Order of the Eastern Star in Michigan and she wasn’t expecting to see her in heaven.
Like you said … a lot of them do join the clubs so they get the perks of a good job, even if they are not qualified. My grandfather said to a friend how did your son get that high paying job without a college degree … and the guy smiled and flashed the masonic ring. My grandfather said don’t give me that BS … and the guy laughed and said really … you join the club then you get promoted. Some will even put stickers on the back of their vehicle so when a cop stops them … they will never get a ticket.

I have some strong opinions about the Freemasons but I’ll just say that there won’t be any secret societies in heaven and for that I am grateful.
The only secrets will be a secret name between you and God. That’s really cool!
New King James Version
17 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.” ’

Yeah. It has a really beautiful meaning behind it too. At that time, if you were acquitted in a court of law, you were given a white stone saying you were not guilty.
So, God is telling believers that they are not guilty. Praise Him for His mercy and grace. :)
The historical backdrop of Pergamum gives us some insight into the symbolism of the white stone:
First, the white stone imagery comes from trial procedures in Pergamum. Osborne writes, “In ancient trials jurors would cast a white or black stone into an urn to vote for acquittal or guilt (cf. Acts 26:10); while no name was written on the stones, the trial setting could make sense in the Pergamene situation.” Jesus could be communicating their acquittal from guilt. Walvoord writes, “In courts of law being given a white stone is thought to represent acquittal in contrast to a black stone which would indicate condemnation.”
Second, the white stone imagery comes from the Pergamum games. Osborne writes, “It was common for members of a guild or victors at the games to use stones as a ticket for admission to feasts, and also for free food or entrance to the games.” Thus Jesus could be explaining that because of the white stone, these believers get free access into the feast of God: heaven.

Feasts? The hidden manna, maybe…?
I’ve wondered if hidden manna was what Jesus described to his disciples when after ministering to the woman at the well, (John 4), He declared , “I have food to eat that you do not know about.” … “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.”
Pergamum?? Thats where Satan has (had?) his throne, right?
Thanks for the background.

I think in the case of the Masons and other societies that it is not strictly evil. They may have societies within those societies that are very much evil but they hide within the organization and use the social aspect as a cover. My grandfather was a mason yet he was a very godly man. He had a big heart for the children’s hospital that the Shriners supported but there is no way anyone could ever convince me that he was involved in anything evil. I knew him as well as I’ve ever known anyone so just because someone is active in one of these “clubs” doesn’t necessitate that they are active in evil. Like I said, I think there are inner circle that use the fraternal order as a front.

A colleague I have been trying to get a hold of called me today. She is against the shot. Seems to know what is going on with this plandemic.</p>
It was great talking to a colleague who knows what is going on
She said she had a telephone appointment with her doctor and he told her to go to the hospital. She said it was a mistake that she went
She said there were security guards all over and hardly any patients in the ER.
She managed to take 3 photos of the empty hospital
They have been saying in the news how they are overwhelmed with sick unvaccinated people

Ok, back to this old thread.
Two things: thank you everybody for your prayers. My hand is healing. ( I had a bad rash from chemicals)
Going back to Geri’s photo of Jed Clampett playing a guitar and singing: I remember the tune of the song but I can’t remember the words. However, I do remember most of the words of Jasper’s song to his love Jethreen.
I guess you remember how tall and big Jethreen is. Jasper is playing his guitar (forgot the name of the instrument) and singing:
Ain’t she sweet.
From her head down to her feet
And that’s a long way
I ask you confidentially, ain’t that baby sweet.
Ain’t she large, but she gives me such a charge.
Ask you very confidentially ain’t that baby large
She stretches out in all directions
I’m here to shout, love is that perfection
oh, you and me. Can’t you see? And that’s the most I’ve ever seen
And I am here to tell you I’m her ding dong daddy and she’s my queen
and she’s king size, my Jethreen
She carries me away
Here, Jethreen who takes everything literally picks him up and runs away with him
