NOW IF THAT ISN’T THE BIGGEST PIECE OF A T-BONE STEAK A FATHER ON DAD’S DAY WOULD SURELY PLACE ON HIS BBQ. THAT BAD BOY WOULD TAKE A FAMILY OF EIGHT TO MAYBE EAT THE MOST OF IT.
AND WHAT PIECE OF STEAK WOULDN’T LOVE A FEW LARGE SHRIMP. MY GRILL IS ABOUT THE SAME SIZE AS THE STEAK IS SITTING ON AND SUMMER UPON US WE NEED TO TAKE THE COOKING AND HEAT OF THE KITCHEN OUTSIDE TO THE BBQ.
MAYBE A FEW ST. LOUIS’ BABY BACK RIBS . OR SOME PRIME TIME BURGER SIRLOIN GROUND BEEF CHEESEBURGERS, WHATEVER IT IS ITS THAT TIME HERE IN THE OZARKS TO KEEP THE FIRES BURNING AND FOOD COMIN. GOT ME A FEW ROASTING EARS OF CORN BUT THEM PEACHES JUST AIN’T READY HERE IN MISSOURI QUITE YET, SO I GOT ME SOME PEACH PRESERVES TO SMEAR ON MY TOAST WITH OR WITHOUT CREAM CHEESE. MM MMM.
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY TO YOU FATHER’S OUT THERE MAY YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY MAYBE EVEN A BBQ, STILL WORKING ON THE PEACE PLAN I HAVE IN MIND FER OUR UNIVERSE, SOMETIMES IT JUST OVERWHELMS ME.
THE PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD, PEACE IS A PROVERBIAL NIGHTMARE. WE LOVE TO FIGHT, DON’T BACK DOWN STAND YOUR GROUND. WHAT KIND OF PEACE WOULD THAT RESULT IN ? NOT A VERY SECURE ONE FOR SURE,
WE ARE A SOCIETY OF THINKERS AND DO’ERS WHAT IS THE HARD PART TO UNDERSTAND WE MUST LIVE TOGETHER IN HARMONY FOR US ALL TO SURVIVE. LIKE THE CARS GONNA DRIVE THEMSELVES SOON CAUSE WE KEEP KILLING WITH OUR CARS. TEXT SOMEONE TO YOUR DEATH, NOT ME I USE THE PHONE. ONLY TEXT WHEN NECESSARY, SURELY NOT BEHIND THE WHEEL OF A CAR.
SO THE PROCESSES OF FORMING A PEACEFUL SOCIETY WORLD WIDE COME TOGETHER AND THE SOONER THE BETTER. PUT DOWN OUR GUNS OF WAR NOW, AND PUT UP THE GUNS OF REPAIRING THIS WORLD TO A LIVEABLE LIFE FOR THE CLOSE TO 7 BILLION PIE HOLES. THAT’S A LOT OF T-BONES AND FRESH WATER, PEAS N CARROTS MAYBE SPINACH AND LOTS OF CHARMIN TOILET PAPER. IF IT SEEMS OVERWHELMING, IT IS. PEACE IS THE WORD, AND LOVE COMES TOGETHER THE RICH MAN MEETS THE POOR MAN IN THE STREET, TOGETHER WE MUST WORK IT OUT.
THE MUSTARD SEED IS SO PLANTED AND EVERY COUNTRY IN GOD’S WORLD IS LOOKING FOR A SAVING GRACE, FRESH AIR TO BREATHE. HAVE A WONDERFUL SUMMER DO IT PEACEFULLY. AMEN.
IN HIS TRUSTED WORD,
General B. T. Hope 17′
My true and faithful all through my life you have my heart and soul how do I know,thank you.
I pray this day your healing power touches Sandy. Her back pain, her feet, depression. Please lift my mission to you Jesus. As it has grown I have learned as your humble servant to listen, hear your voice. The thunder rolls, this mighty soldier is ready at your call Jesus. I seek only Satan, so many imitations of him through the demons of his world,not mine.
I feel your hand upon me, your rock I build your Homeward Bound take my golden heart n this Holy Ground I walk upon and give it life through me Lord.
The body ripe roll, the grapes of your wrath will be over in a heartbeat. These hills mark my family and its ancestral right. I know something telling my soul to keep on this trail. Untimely to onlookers protect and lift me through these songs I sing. Hallelujah, Jesus, Hallelujah,Heaven.
Praise be to you,forever let my light so shine!
Thank you Jesus!

Goodness. Its a raining to beat the band!
Hope them you’ins can light them firecrackers and all that celebration.
I sure apologize to any avid readers of the General Post of the hobo thang , I am
gettiner done is to say it lightly. Cleaned the office and them dang chickens are ready to
move out of the cabin into the chicken coop out back. Ma Hope is gettin mad at me fer
scarin’ her a few times with them(chickens) Seems I g9t all hens and not a rooster
to be had.
They aint layin no eggs yet but the wings look rady to fry. haha. Nah Got them arounde april fools day and they was a little chicken nugget size then. I drew up the plans for the coop and hammering and cuttin wood and stuff in all this heat makes u wanna go jump in a lake but it wont stop rainin long enough for me to a do that.
My children all growed now and these chores used to be their’s now, ole Grandpa if I want fresh chicken or any farm stuff I gotta get out here and well raise these chickens. Im kinda nervous for th rock n roll ochie coo in Im a fixin to start bookin gigs and settin up this Peace Train Holy Ghost revival ( the tickets are free, Ma Hope said ) As I know these understudies of ours surely needs some something u know. I do know prayer and hard work will pay dividends if u dont put all them chickens in one basket, so Im trying to recruit some volunteers and cause it dont pay anythang it is quite the obstacle to move these mountains of troubles ahead of us but God Willing and the creek quits risin FRAGILE/repack has its first debut show down che’re in the holler’s of the Ozarks. I’ll fill ya in a bit later as it gets closer to performance time.
. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we venture into God’s work and what he has planned for our mission. MAy you all have a safe and fun Holiday Celebration remember to do the right thang and help out others needin your Christian Love and Guidance.

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

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.
