Farewell Old Onions Bag!

My God! I recommend to Thee the souls of my relations,
my benefactors, my friends and my enemies,
and of those who are in Purgatory on my account.

I recommend to Thee the souls of evangelical labourers,
of Religious and priests,
and especially of those who had charge of my soul.

I recommend to Thee the souls of those
who were most devout to the passion of Our Lord,
to the Blessed Sacrament,
to the Blessed Virgin Mary,
the souls who are most abandoned,
those who suffer most,
and those who are nearest to the entrance into paradise.

Old Onions Bag, May you rest in Peace!

  1. We are all scheduled to leave this side for the next stage yet, to those left behind, I offer sincerest condolences

  2. My Condolences to the family and friends … he was one of the earlier BU members …rest … until that Appointed Day when we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God …

  3. BU is nothing if not fascinating.I am able to discern the identity of “Old Onion Bags” by not only the coincidence of his inevitable and sad death yesterday, but I am also able to see the logic in his pseudonym. My condolences to both of his brothers whom I know very well and to his other family and friends. May he rest in peace and rise in glory!

  4. his inevitable ……death


    For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

    15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

    16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

    51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

    52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

    HEBREWS 9:27
    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

  5. He did it his way. One reason the blogmaster has not updated the blog since the passing of Old Onions is to show how fleeting time is and we should utilize it constructively. There is the belief that there is the opportunity for those alive to learn when others transition.

    Will we?

  6. We choose the life we live and we live the life we choose
    Some opportunities we let pass by the wayside and some opportunities we hold on to for dear life
    Either or! when we reached or final destination we have no one to blame for the good or the bad we left behind for it was all done because of our own choosing

  7. Please permit me to attach my name to the list of those offering condolences to the family of the Old Onion Bag…..

  8. May OOB rest in peace.

    But who was Old Onion Bags?
    Seems like everyone on BU except me knew or knows who he was.

  9. @ Are-we-there-yet
    He was Old Onion Bags… no need for any further details.

    A most pleasant and jovial BU character who loved to laugh ..and who enjoyed a mature tit for tat… be it on politics, life in general …. or his fictional girl friend.
    He was always threatening Bushie with his weapon of choice (a bill fish beak) – especially after Bushie exposed him once when he claimed to have spent the night fishing – only to be spotted by the Bushman in Paynes Bay Fish Market buying fish to take home as evidence…

    Bushie’s favourite blog foe by far….
    He is already sadly missed….

  10. @ Are We There Yet

    You probably are new to the BU convention as it relates to bloggers here who pass.

    It has been agreed that, while many here Will Know who the person is in real life, we are of the thought and practice NOT TO SAY THE PERSON ‘s name.

    The Code of the Anonymice has on reflection said that it might not be in the interest of those left behind to divulge the identity of the late great keyboard warriors CAUSE, and ond reason was floated, BARBADOS IS BESEIGED BY small minded men and women who hold grudges

    A second reason is that we who choose to be anonymice in life should have that choice respected in death EVEN THOUGH SOME OF US, NOT ME OF COURSE, ARE NO RESPECTERS OF PERSONS WHILE THEY ARE LIVING.

    If you check the obituaries you can see who the person is ESPECIALLY WHEN THEIR FUNERAL TAKES CENTRE STAGE but you are not to mention that name out of respect.

  11. Piece

    Agree with that last post.That is one of the good thing about BU.

    I discovered who old onion bags was – and that person was not a bad fella at all.

  13. @ Dr. GP

    heheheheh, I understand where you are coming from.

    It is very clear to me what transpired and why your modus.

    After all, I am similarly embarked notwithstanding the nature of de ole man’s enemy.

    I am no less passionate, nor less enquiring, nor less critical of my target than you are.

    I will suggest that you, even though you see the rumiels, you revert to your accustomed giving, in other niches

    It is hard at times Dr. GP but other than that they do not see the other side of you that is there.

    AND YES, we dont really care what they think, do we? but you know that you have an uncanny ability to make an oath and ignore some sheeple for life.

    There are people here who, like me, genuinely respect you for your faith and knowledge but need verbal exchange as to the why you think so as opposed to it is so, Selah.

    I dont know what else to say Dr. GP…

  14. You guys are a whole bunch of hypocrites David BU included
    Now anyone who speaks of aynomous has yet to understand that such policy is not applied to all.
    David seems to have comprised a list of those people whose legal names he will protect from the glaring eyes of public scrunty
    While there are those including yours truly that David in his moments of frustration would use his battering ram to open the doors and allow the eyes of the world to peep in and know who they are
    The hypocrisy here stinks the house up
    Reason why i choose to use several aynonmous to protect myself from the gazing eyes of BU

  15. Oh by the way i have given strict orders that on my demise to reveal my identity on BU
    You will be pleasantly surprised
    Surprised to know that all were wrong
