The Lord may be risen, but the bands were down.

    I feel this is not an appropriate comment. I understand it was in jess (I hope) but still …

  • Gery KN5GLA:

    Time to lighten up a bit guys — Paul was having fun – and the comment is certainly not offensive to any Christian. I’m 70 years of age and am a lifelong Catholic. We know how to get offended and when to do so LOL.

    Paul’s statement is actually quite accurate — The Lord is risen!! — and the bands were, in fact, down over the weekend. Two very timely and accurate remarks – with no offense intended.

    73’s to all 🙂

  • Larry W2LJ:

    ROFL! Not offensive at all.

  • David:

    We are having fun now….

  • John N8ZYA:

    Don’t see how this comment could possibly be anything other than a little humor. Something of which we all could use a little more of these days.

  • Paul PC4T:

    Hi Folks, it wasn’t my intention to offend anyone. Just a little humor. My apology for unintended insult. 73 Paul

  • Peter kg5wy:

    NOT “May be”, but “IS”. 🙂
