End of the month. Here comes summer’s end. The 21st September I reckon is first day of autumn here in the hills n byways of the Ozarks.
Tryin to get to the bottom of things like the last sip milk I member that sip good. A homemade apple 🍎 dumplin cake. With cinnamon roll icing. Gained few calories just rethankin that after dinner aftif. Summer of 2016 will b historical for years to come. I shoulda ate more ice cream n watermelons maybe next year.
is the sunsettin or risin. All u science scholars orta know it ain’t a doin a thang we earthrock are guilty of turnin the world upside right by our revolutions of rocks not people.haha
can you change anything by dreamin n writing stuff n sleepin till noon most days. Well,yeah I did finish the chicken coop pictures no doubt comin to Better Coops n Gardens fall issue. Can’t get no eggs out of Dem chickens yet. I spoke to them accordingly to avert a trip to the drive thru at Kentucky fried chicken.
Food for summer. Wow. Of all my cookins n bbqs n stuff I did invent in my kitchen pizza from the upper crust. The one at top is a Sicilian Italian Sausage w jalepeno n scallions n mozzarrella melted on top. Mmm. Wish u coulda been here. No I ate the whole thing. Hahaha…
built a smoker for smokin meats n chicken n sorts like a stray deer loin. Secret…Oak with green watersoaked branches n logs. Roast n smokes meat slower better mm mm Good pork Sammy w homemade BBQ sauce. Corn on cob French fries n pie. Any kind goes good after my BBQ. As Julia would say bon apetite.
One last thought. How many Cubs do it take to win this day.? Nine n one more run than the other team.

I need to get down there and see this B.s.
Heath Harris 7y
For real. This guy is new in town and has some great ideas. He told me to send people his way.
RØB Severson 7y
Is this intended to be a permanent setup? I am more intrigued than you might imagine! What else can you tell me about it?
Heath Harris 7y
Pancake, yes, it is this guy’s vision to establish a school in this building. He says he is talking with the owner.
Keep in mind this is my interpretation of the project. The best idea is to take up The Amish Hobo on his invitation to interested parties to pay him a visit – just north of 1st and O’fallon streets.
From what I gathered in our exchange, Jeremiah wants to bring together the skills and knowledge of country folk, the Amish for example, with the resources of the city. He talked about living simply for the earth, that the hobo lifestyle has much to teach our society about how to utilize increasingly limited resources.
He wants to give a voice to homeless (but he does not like that word – he prefers Hobo, which apparently comes from the term “homeward bound”. Bikes and bike trailers are an important piece of the university, as they will empower folks without the resources to own a car to be mobile and acquire the recyclable castoff stuff needed to build the university, while reaching out to a wider geographical area.
The plan also includes urban farming, and reintroducing basic human knowledge to a generation that may be the first in history to not know how to feed themselves without supermarkets and microwaves.
All of this is wrapped up in a rather lighthearted approach, with humor and art as the platform for spreading the word. When I spoke with him, Jeremiah seemed to be all there. He has chosen to come to Saint Louis (fairly recently) to establish this operation. I think he knows what he is doing, and I just want to lend what help I can by introducing Hobo University to those who might be curious via Flickr, etc. I have always found Saint Louisans to be a welcoming people, so if you are interested enough to still be reading this, go say Hi!
RØB Severson 7y
Yeah I love the idea. A friend and I have been planning a technology-free “hobo trip” for awhile now, this feller could almost certainly offer a wealth of useful information. Is he really Amish?
Heath Harris 7y
Half-Amish, Full-blooded Hobo. He is living just behind the stage area in the photo above. If you see his bike with trailer, he should be around. Just ask for Jeremiah.

i’m enrolling for spring semester! i came by here with some friends to talk to him this past summer since it looked welcoming — he’s definitely a very interesting guy, and, i’d agree, he seemed ‘all there’. just fed up with the BS like a lot of us. he didn’t mention HBU, but with these pictures, i can see the vision. thanks for posting this!
Heath Harris 6y
My pleasure, Mr. Alaska. Spread the word – Homeward Bound!

to tell you my story, you would never believe the half of this. my name is General Bebo T Hope a self appointed seven star General of God’s Army. The ‘Amish Hobo’ Jeremiah and I put the cornerstone on the Hobo university in October 2009. by December I was deported to an apartment on the south side of the university. but… before leaving I raised the flagship on the tent City(an actual tent city in Downtown St Louis right below the parking lots for the foortball stadium, fact I herd they wanna tear down the original university and put a 200 million dollar football stadium for a losing football team and occasional joyce Meyers convention, just jokin ms joyce. instead of givin me that monies and fixin the building for the rightful owners the homeless of the central states of America!! go figure) . As the head chef and bottle washer and coffee conussuer I helped the owne,r Mr Green, & two off duty st louis finests design and almost implemented it a ‘Whispering Winds Retreat’ (details laid out in web site hobounivercity.com)
Now I am a disabled veteran service connected disbilitys drawing a slim to none pension the army gives us but…
the rest of the story is unfolding before your eyes as I am resurrecting the plans and either a double vision on Lake of the ozrks area and st. Louis Missouri kinda a town n country retreats. for the homeless veterans and other homeless folks and right now I need your funds and dollars and pennies and gold to build this ship with wheels and legs to stand on. we can bring Mr Greens dream to life. over the past 7 years I have built this computer center hub I call it the International Headqurters of the Hobo Univercity. we are located on the shores of the Lake here in Climax Springs, Missouri have signed many soldiers into God’s Army since I left St louis so please call 5736470599 and we can chat a bit. as mr Bojanges can dance . God grant us Peace in our lives this day and forward.
In Jesus Name
we surrender all

green green grasses of my homeland… that would b Chicago and I ain’t no saint ,yet. I’m doing the right thang evry day to see the green O’Malley only talked about in his tales of his crypt. They say to hold a lepracaun he will take you to his golden treasure. Hmm so’ s if in’s I hold myself, I may find me gold in the bucket I have hiding wisely in the ground some where’s near here.
Of course I must not spill the where abouts or the treasure will be yours. Could be it is in my heart that lay the gold for the passage to it would surely make a grown man quiver. Lest he die in the search. Oh and many have in their quest to this heart o gold. But I will soon be off again, to the battle of the snake and the its charmer. As the tale continues on Erin go brach and he will void all the wrongdoers and naysayers entry into the golden castle I have stored.
Yes believers It so be as from the streets of heaven is no fairy tale or old folklore but a true and grand find indeed. To get the key from this old, old, wizard of sorts one must only believe….
TIS THE LUCK OF THE IRISH don’t they see….
MAY JOY AND PEACE COME TO THIS WORLD OF MINE TODAY
The creators of silly . As the Three stooges taught millions of wanna be comedians the art of the skit with all the trimmings. From falling down the stairs to being shot out a window the Three Stooges gave true meaning to laughter and fun. I would think God gets a laugh or three out of the antics of his Children. From watching a cowboy at a rodeo ride a Bull, to the antics of man riding in space ships to the outer limits.
“And we know that all things work together for the good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.
AS GENERAL OF GOD’S ARMY SEEMS I HAVE DEVELOPED A REAL SENSE OF CARING. LOVE AS IT IS, IS SURELY OVERATED IF NOT OVERSTATED. WHAT POSSIBLY CAN COME OUT OF 3 BILLION CHRISTIANS GIVING AWAY THEIR LOVE EVERYDAY TO A WORLD OF UNRECEPTIVE PEOPLE WANTING NOTHING MORE THAN FOOD, A JOB, A HOME AND SOME SORT OF LIFE. AS CHRISTIANS WE MUST OBEY THE CALLING OF GOD’S EVERY COMMAND. LIFT UP OUR HANDS TO HEAVEN AND GIVE HIM PRAISE AND THE GRACE WILL FLOW. FROM YOUR LOVE TO THE ONES THAT NEED IT.
PEOPLE, DON’T WE SEE, THIS IS THE LAST HURRAH OF SORTS. AS THE WAR CONTINUES AGAINST THE DEVIL AND HIS ADVERSARIES AND STILL THE FAITH IS NOT EVEN THAT OF THE MUSTARD SEED. GET ON OUR KNEES DAILY AND SPEAK TO HIM. HE WANTS TO HEAR FROM HIS CHILDREN. TELL HIM YOUR NEEDS BUT ALSO TELL HIM OF THE WONDERFUL THINGS HE HAS DONE FOR US IN OUR LIVES. NOTHING IS GONNA STOP THIS LOVE FLOWING. QUIT RUNNING FROM OUR HOPE AND THE PLAIN SIMPLE FACTS. JESUS IS REAL AND TODAY IS AS GOOD A DAY AS ANY TO START OVER.
EVERYDAY I MAKE A SIMPLE PRAYER TO GOD TO FORGIVE ME AND TO GIVE THE GLORY HE HAS GIVEN TO ME RIGHT BACK TO HIM. THE MERCY AND GRACE ABOUNDS IN THE SUN HE SHINES TO US DAILY. THE WATER WE DRINK AND THE FOOD WE ENJOY. IT WAS AND WILL BE HERE FOR US FOR AN ETERNITY. BUT HE SEES HOW WE REACT IN SITUATIONS ABOUND. FROM THE SIMPLE OPENING OF YOUR MOUTH TO PRAISE JESUS. TO THE HARDSHIP OF A LOVED ONE DYING. COMFORT COMES TO A GRIEVING WORLD OF UNBELIEVERS. YET THE BELIEVERS MUST CONTINUE ON DAILY SHOWING OUR WORLD HOW TO LIVE IN HARMONY AND UNITED THRU OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE COMFORT OF HIS SPIRIT UNTIL HIS ARRIVAL.
OH, HOW CAN I REALLY CARE. I CAN TAKE THE EXTRA TIME TO WRITE TO YOU AND GIVE YOU ALL MY HEART AND SOUL AND KNOW GOD IS IN THE HOUSE. I PRAY AND SEE THE MIRACLES AND I PRAY AND SEE THE HEALINGS AND THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING. LET’S GIVE EM’ SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT. GET OFF THE SOON I WILL . DO THE RIGHT THING NOW! SEE YOUR LIFE IN A MINUTE. IT IS AN ETERNITY JESUS GIVES US AND THE HELP YOU NEED IS ONLY A PRAYER AND A STEP OF FAITH AWAY.
KEEP WATCHING AS THE LIGHT ON THE HILL IS LIT FOR YOU. US. PEACE WILL COME TO THE ONES THAT ENABLE IT TO HAPPEN. PLEASE KEEP THIS FIRE ALIVE AS THE ONLY WAY TO KNOW JESUS IS IN YOUR LIFE IS TO ASK HIM DAILY TO BE IN YOUR LIFE AND HE WILL. IF TWO OR MORE, YOU AND I ARE IN HIS NAME HE IS RIGHT HERE WITH US. READ THESE WORDS AND GO HELP IS IN YOUR ACTIONS AND GOD BLESS US EACH AND EVERY DAY.
When the big ole van arrived up to our cabin, I was in so much awe and
god has answered my prayer. Today when Ma Hope walked into the cabin I was so insured about faith and the substance of how it is right in our face when work involved or not god’s graces and mercies abound.

AMAZING GRACE HOW SWEET THE SOUND,
THAT SAVED A WRETCH LIKE ME
I ONCE WAS LOST, BUT NOW I’m FOUND\
WAS BLIND, BUT NOW I SEE.
BY GENERAL BEBO THE HOPE / 2016
People, everywhere. six billion pie holes. All of us are looking for a miracle of sorts and it is right in front of us. God’s wonderful universe. if only we believe. Jesus came born in a lowly manger. No crib for his bed. Yet he is the King of our Universe. Look tpo the skies, It is in the air we breathe. No other life in the universe is such as we have it right here in the Earth. Yet, we bicker and argue andfight one another, for what? Love is here, we all want the same thing. Peace on Earth!!! Let it begin with all that read my song today,
December 1st, 2015
would be a perfect day for World Peace to begin. Well , I’m starting it with me. Shake hands and help one another. today is the right time for this peace and war needs to be no more. We have lost so many sons of this world and for no reason. Let no more blood be spilled. No body bags filled with unnecessary deaths due to WAR! My prayers go out to this world today and with your help we can do this.
TODAY AS I WENT TO DO SOME SHOPPING AND LOOK THROUGH A THRIFT STORE I COMPLETED MY TASKS AND SAT IN THE SHADE OF THE FRONT DOORS. A LADY , SEEMED DISTRESSED WALKING TOWARD THE THRIFT STORE . I HAPHAZRDLY SAID IS EVERYTHING OK MAM? EVIDENTLY, SHE COMES TO THE STORE OCCASIONALLY, TO SHOP. WE STRUCK UP A CONVERSATION. OF COURSE I MENTIONED THE MISSION AND ALL THE TRIMMINGS ONE COULD MUSTER IN FIVE MINUTES ABOUT MY ‘CHURCH WITHOUT WALLS’
I NEEDED TO SPEAK A LITTLE TO ALLOW THE SPIRIT AND JESUS TO ASSIST ME, LEAD ME THRU WITNESSING TO THIS LADY. WHEN SHE HEARD I DID CLOWN WORK SHE WAS EAR TO EAR WITH SMILES AND I DEFINETLY THINK THE SUN CAME OUT BEHIND THAT CLOUD AS OUR CONVERSATION JUST GOT MORE N MORE ON A PERSONAL LEVEL FOR HER. I WON’T PUT HER NAME OUT BUT I MET AN ANGEL TODAY. SHE HAD JUST CAME FROM A CHURCH SHARING HER TESTIMONY IN THERE AND SHE JUST KNEW SHE WAS GONNA MEET UP WITH THE GENERAL THIS DAY.
I MOST LIKELY WILL NEVER SEE HER AGAIN, YET JESUS AND I INSTALLED A LITTLE LIGHT IN HER LIFE THIS DAY. DIDN’T COST ANYTHING TO SMILE AND LIFT THE SPIRITS UP OF A PERSON WHO SHORELY NEEDED SOME ENCOURAGMENT AND UPLIFTING TODAY. AS SHE WALKED AWAY I SAW HER WINGS AND KNEW THEN SHE WAS THE ANGEL GOD SENT TO ME.
PEACE STARTS WITH JUST TWO PEOPLE AND THE LOVE AND KINDNESS EVOLVED IN OUR CONTACT WILL LAST A LIFETIME FOR THIS MAN FOR SURE. IT IS JUST THAT EASY. PEACE THE TANGLED WORLD NEEDS. PEACE WHAT IS IT? CAN WE POSSIBLY HAVE PEACE IN OUR WORLD SOON.?
NO MORE DEATH BY VIOLENCE AND TERRORISTIC MEN AND WOMEN. IT MUST END AND END NOW.
LOVE .THE CHILD.
HE HAS MORE LOVE
THAN ALL OF US GROWNUPS.
WILL IT TAKE AN ARMY OF CHILDREN
MARCHING TO DRAW ALL OF US
TO A PEACEFUL , LOVING WORLD.
MAYBE. AN ANGEL TOUCHED ME TODAY.
WE TRIED ONCE, TO BUILD A TOWER TO HEAVEN. IT WAS CALLED ‘THE TOWER OF BABEL”. AT THE TIME THIS WHOLE WORLD SPOKE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME LANGUAGE AND THE LEADERS CALLED EVERY NATION TO COME AND HELP TO BUILD THE TOWER SO WE CAN MEET AND SEE OUR GOD!!! NEEDLESS TO SAY AFTER SEVERAL ATTEMPTS AND STORIES OF ROCK AND WOODEN STRUCTURE, GOD HAD ENOUGH. HE KNEW THEY WERE GOING ON IN A FRUTILE AND FOOLISH CHORE TO BUILD THIS TOWER , A STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN, MIND YOU!
SO HE STRUCK DOWN AND SPLIT EVERYONES LANGUAGES APART. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO UNDERSTOOD ONE ANOTHER ,NO LONGER COULD. THE LANGUAGE BARRIER GOD IMPOSED WAS TREMENDOUS. THE TOWER CEASED TO GROW ANY TALLER AND EVENTUALLY THE GROUPS OF LIKE LANGUAGES WENT THEIR SEPERATE WAYS AND SPREAD THRUOUT THE WORLD.
NOW, JESUS IS LEADING US TO A NEW WORLD AND NEW WAY OF LOVE AND PEACE UPON OUR EARTH. WE EVEN HAVE COMPUTERS THAT TRANSLATE SO OTHER NATIONS CAN AND WILL UNDERSTAND WHEN THE ORDERS START TO ROLL OUT FROM HEAVEN. IMAGINE SOON FAMILIES WILL COME TOGETHER. DISEASES WILL BE CURED. HUNGER AND DEATH WILL ALSO BE ERADICATED. CHILDREN OF THE ETERNAL LIGHT SOON WILL START LIGHTING UP THIS DARKENDED WORLD AND THE DISCIPLES AND JESUS ON HIS WHITE HORSE WILL DESTROY THE DEMONS AND SATAN HIMSELF WILL BE CHAINED AND AT SOME POINT IN THE BEGINNING OF OUR ETERNAL LIVING, WILL BE ESCORTED (*SATAN ) TO THE FIREY FURNACE HE HAS WAITING FOR HIM FOR HIS EVRLASTING FIRE OF HELL!
GOD BLESS EVERYONE WHO READS MY MESSAGE THIS DAY AND TELL OTHERS PEACE IS IMMINENT. WE DON’T WANT TO FIGHT ANYMORE. LOVE IS THE KEY.
