One thing I must say about WordPress, it rocks.
Since I’ve switched from unreliable and unpredictable blogger, I have NO complaints.
Of course, that may change but for now I am a happy blogger.
The Old Guy was napping. He was soaking up some sun rays yesterday.
It was a perfect Fall day. The air was cool, fresh, and crisp. The sun was bright.
So I whistled out the door and woke him up. I am a meanie…..but he was bellering for his Equine Senior at 6am this morning. Fair is Fair, right?
Something that has been ‘sorta’ a big deal around here is about Federal Prosecutors are appealing a judge’s decision to dismiss a case against an American Indian who shot a bald eagle for use in a tribal religious ceremony.
Cheyenne, WY is a long ways off from Oklahoma. But this case affects all Native Americans. We cannot have our people out running around shooting these magnificent and threatened birds at will.
However, their feathers are essential for ceremonies.
“a federal repository that dispenses eagles killed by cars or power lines works too slowly and sometimes provides remains of poor quality. Such birds are not considered “clean” for ceremonies.”
“The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service generally refuses to grant permits allowing tribal members to kill bald eagles, even though federal regulations say such permits should be available.”
Why can’t the Gov’t grant Native Americans these permits?
This is something that can easily be regulated and managed, and would not endanger Bald Eagles any more than they already are….
What anal-retentive control freak is in charge of that department? Probably some white, pasty faced….okay, I’ll stop now before I say something not very nice because I feel myself wanting to get real ugly about this.
I have been up with a healthy dose of Insomnia since 3 am. I am feeling a tiny bit bitchy….
I gave Wee One 3 big, plastic, dinosaurs for his birthday and the deer figure (he calls it Bambi). He LOVES the dinosaurs! I think T-Rex is his favorite. It has huge, scary, teeth.
As soon as he opened T-Rex, he went off to find his goat. Do you know why?
Have you watched the Jurassic Park movie(the first movie made)?
Remember the scene where T-Rex is baited in for the sight-seers with a chained up goat?
Well, you can see where Wee One was going with that……
Just before nap-time yesterday. Wee One was a tired toddler. So tired, he was not his usual Toddler Terror self.
The puppy was a birthday gift from hubby and I. This puppy, barks, wiggles, wags it’s tail, and even licks (with a wet tongue).
It is called Love n’ Lick Puppies: Jack Russel Terrier .
Wee One calls him ‘puppy‘.
When I was present shopping, I bought the last one on the shelf at K-Mart. Luckily, it was the Jack Russel one…..
Wal-Mart in Bartlesville was totally out of them.
Well, except for a Cocker Spaniel that had the box partially tore open and was dirty. I was NOT buying that one.
I had no idea these puppies were considered one of the ‘hot‘ Christmas gifts of the year.
Speaking of presents, here is one gift I am NOT expecting under the Christmas tree this year…..
That is a lot of cash for what, in my opinion, is a gawd awful UGLY saddle……
That amount of cash would pay off my car with a small sum left over…….
I am quite happy with my saddle I already have.
I would be very happy with these :
Frye Boots in BROWN they are $400
These $480 Frye Boots in a different style.
