I would love to be there just to be able to witness the shit show in person.  I can’t begin to imagine how bad it will be.

My guess is the photo was taken at the auction site in New York.  It is still pretty common to see photos of the towers in that area.  Although that still doesn't explain why the kid is shoeless...

I was just wondering why he wasn't wearing shoes! The only explanation I could come up with was maybe they were muddy. But that appears to be a concrete floor. I would have thought the business would have required shoes due to liability issues.

You mean the “business” that is located in the Barndominium’s “Living Quarters?”

One year in the future, when Covid is over, we need to sponsor someone to go in disguise to Jilly's women's retreat and report back to us on all of the behind the scenes madness. Who volunteers as tribute? I would do it but I have a bad habit of not being able to keep my mouth shut when someone is spouting obvious lies or utter bullshit.

Me too. I could never pass as fundie, in dress, deportment, or speech. We need someone who can pull off an undercover/mole assignment.

Many years ago in the early 2000s when long denim skirts were "in" for a bit amongst my very non-fundie college crowd, I tried to turn an old pair of jeans into a jean skirt by cutting open the inner leg seams and sewing them together in the front and back as a skirt instead. It didn't really work out due to the crotch area not coming together smoothly and causing super awkward bumps there...but if I still had that monstrosity of a design attempt it would make a fabulous skirt to wear undercover to Jill's retreat - what would be more ostentatiously modest than a pair of jeans resewn (very poorly) into a skirt?? A camisole under an already high-necked t-shirt would complete the ensemble.

I've been told by both professors and bosses that when I think something is stupid, my face is incredibly disdainful. I cope by refusing to look at anyone, which then becomes a tell of its own. 

It was named the "Zella's getting skeptical face" by one of my English professors. He actually used to call it in lectures. "Oh there it is." LOL Thus, as much as I would like to be a fundie spy, I fear they'd out me within minutes! LOL 

I have been told that my face really shows how I feel! I can bluff for awhile over light hearted things, but when I am disgusted or angry, you can see it! We were at a restaurant and getting bad service. I didn't say a word but my husband said "I can see you want to complain by the look on your face".

YES! One of my classes featured someone named Heather who would not stop talking about the dumbest bullshit imaginable. After a particularly annoying class, a friend asked me, "You don't like Heather, do you?" "Oh what makes you say that?" "When she talks, you look at her like you want to gut her with a rock." 😇

I’m a recovering addict/alcoholic, and we are masters at bullshitting.  I can bullshit my way through anything!  The only problem would be that spending a few days with JRod might send me straight back to the bottle! 🍸🥴😉

A few days with JRod would send a teetotaler to the bottle! There is no way I could stand to be in the same room with her, since she would definitely try to convert me.

That makes me wonder - does Jill try to convert overweight, pants-wearing, job-having, blue haired women when she sees them?  Or are they too horrible to approach, since she might get their cooties. It seems like she mostly talks about saving men.

I think Jill avoids anyone who she think will push back. In that sense, I think she is a classic bully and manipulator, so she zooms in on people who she thinks will politely and meekly let her yammer at them instead of telling her to go fuck herself.

Since the retreat showcases Jill's decorating and hosting talents, it will be tacky be default.

It will be hard for her to outdo her first retreat, which was centered on her SEVERELY QUADRIPLEGIC sister Amy, complete with a booklet from Shrek's holy printing press about "Amy's story." Since Jill has run out of sympathetic female relatives and ordinary mothers and grandmothers, we'll see who she cajoles into being guest speakers this year. Maybe Kaylee and Renee will co-present the virgin purity breakout session. Shrek and a couple of the Rod sons will sit around munching on peanuts in the men's group, watching sports on TV if they can get away with it. It's likely most of the men are there only because of the female attendees who can't travel without a male relative in tow. 

My poker face is pretty good, but this retreat would give me hives. I'm sure Jill will post a lot of photos. She likes to show off.

I text Mr. Grey all the time, but I keep it simple.

I can only imagine how he'd react if I sent, "Hellooooo best hubby ever! You are my ROCK! Also, we need milk and paper towels. Love yoooouuuuu!" or "Just want to say that I ADORE you and you are a GIFT from GOD. I would so appreciate if you dragged the trash cans to the curb tonight! I am so grateful for you!"

Blecch.

At 8 weeks the baby is 1/2 - 3/4 inch long.  No need to hold your stomach, Nurie.

This absolutely cracked me up. I think Mr. Madtown would give me a big ol WTF, if I sent a text like that too. We'll throw in an "I love you" once in awhile, but that's about as mushy as it will get.

Nurie is definitely living in an RV or camper. That doorway behind her looks as if she wouldn't fit through it at 9 months pregnant.

I don't live that far from the rod clan, an easy few hour drive, my 9yr old grand girl could do my makeup. but MrCrazy8s and I swore of all church services, retreats and conference type things about 10yrs ago. we have been to a few weddings and funeral services in that time (not during covid) it would be a hard sell there for me to explain that my snarking group wanted me to be a spy🤣

I just hope it’s not the old Keller pop up camper. Jill and Shrek were definitely desperate to unload Nuri. Then again not sharing an RV with fourteen other people is a step up. Nathan needs to cut off the Rods and save his money for a proper place to live, and to support the baby on the way. Hopefully one of the siblings who have left the cult will counsel Nathan about finances.

Too far of a drive for me, plus I am an absolutely terrible liar. I can't be anyone but myself no matter how hard I try. And Mr Jyn would probably think I was ready to be committed for even bringing something like that up to begin with. But it would be an awful lot of fun if only those hurdles could be overcome! LOL

That’s a good question, which is one more reason we need a mole!  Which one of you wants to put on a blue wig, lots of makeup, fake tattoos, provocative clothing, etc. and crash JRod’s “It’s All About Me” party?

So is this photo to prove her children actually get to eat? We always comment about the food being near them but wondering if they get to eat it, so now she's like, "put it in your mouth so Momma can get a photo?" Because why would you post a photo of your daughter biting into nasty CC pizza otherwise?!
