Good night Soaring Feather.

Sleepy time is nigh
and Soaring Feather soars high
to a romantic and exoctic place
that puts a smile upon her face

Rest Well

Touch the soul of a poet
and you find pain
and joy,
and life in many colors
experiences good and sad,
hard and easy,
blended into a whole
not quite complete
but near enough to feel

The canyon wall is fired in orange and red
while the canyon depths are cool shadows here
and as night draws nigh I see the silent deer
coming from the brush where they made their bed

Sandstone gold in the evening sunset
reflected in a pool as clear as the very air
wherein twinkle a sea of stars so truly fair
and I welcome night well loved as met

I've never been in Montana land
although I heard it's truly grand
with miles and miles of unspoiled land
like in the days when you were a youth
you ran with the wind, and played on the range
became a cowboy most grand.

Montana, at least to those who lived there
its a place of open spaces and oft good folk
I miss it so, but can’t afford to live there now
the economy is artificial and low pay is no joke
yet it calls me and I hear it sad but fair

The mountains I knew are still mighty and tall
the plains filled with wheat and grass that wave
where you see the herds of range wise beef cows
that image I would forever hold close to save
for I hear the unforgettable but distant call

That is my catnip not yours! You ate yours, and now you want mine? You’re becoming a nip-a-holic! I’m putting you on cold turkey! (that’s cheaper then catnip anyway.)

Good morning everyone. What a bright and beautiful morning it is. The birds are chirping outside the window and of course Calli is doing her best to charm them to come closer for inspection.

I can relate to that. As a young sailor (18 yo), I went on liberty in Mobile, Ala. Drank it without a mix or chaser. Needless to say my impending doom and a severe hangover. To this day, I cannot stand the smell of Gin.

I was 17 and drank a fifth at an underage party. Hallucinated. Fortunately one of the girls was daughter to a nurse and knew what to do. Like you, I can’t stand to be within smelling distance of the stuff.

Thank you Feather for your greetings. They are so pure and gentle. I’m in a tough spot right now and any spark of something good gives me some hope. If you are a spiritual person, please pray for me.

Here Kitty, kitty, kitty. Uncle Johnn has a nice bag of fresh ‘nip for ya! Just set that bottle over here and have a nice roll on the sun with this catnip!

(I can trade the Gin for a bit of the Irish single malt and every body is a winner)

Dark sweet red merlot wine
lit by the light of sunset
and the love of good friends
around a crackling bonfire

Of such things I never tire
no matter how my life bends
I take each single day as met
and make it completely mine

Oh dear friend, of course, prayers are offered.

May whatever darkness shadows you
be lifted for the light to shine through.

Hang on to your belief, we are here for you.

I have been thinking about you and thought since Fall is upon us - your camping season must be over. Good to see you. ;0)

oh beautiful graphic, thank you.

Hi Meg, cooler weather here too, moved in this afternoon. I was out for an errand the temp was nearly 80F, I have just nicely gotten home when thunder and lightning rolled in with rain, temps now at 60F going to 50 tonight. This is normal for this time of year here, fifties or lower.Just checked your message again sounds like our temps are about the same.

Thanks for the offer of a Muppet Song. 8^) I am back at the grind. Surprisingly, the amount of growth that occurred in my in-basket. All of course have a very short response time.

Thank you for your prayers.

Yes, camping is done until January, when I’ll do a little winter survival camping.

Went out West through the Bad Lands, the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming, and Yellowstone. Saw some beautiful country. The gypsy spirit in me says “Chuck it all, and go live out in the Mountains.” While that may be fun for me, it wouldn’t be so fun for my family.

This doesn’t exactly relate to anything above, but I’ve been thinking of speech given by Florida State Coach Bobby Bowden. He said something along the lines of “without adversity, you can’t build character.” He said something about “you show me someone who hasn’t faced much adversity, I’ll show you someone who doesn’t have much character.” What he was talking about wasn’t just facing it, but fighting through it while maintaining your goals and standards.

Right now, the idea of maintaining a certain character, is just feeling a bit too much. It’s in times like this I have to just take my days one minute at a time.

Well, thanks for listening. Sorry for the pity-party. I’ve called the Whaaampulance, and they should be by soon. (^;

Spy Flies All the Buzz at Washington, N.Y. Political Events

Tuesday, October 09, 2007

Ever wish you could be a "fly on the wall" at a closed-door meeting or to hear a foe’s secrets?

Enter the robobug.

Witnesses are buzzing about recent sightings of robotic-looking dragonflies seen at Washington and New York political events. And U.S. government and private agencies have admitted to striving for the spy technology, The Washington Post reports, though no one has confessed to deploying the bugged bugs.

• Click here to read the full story in The Washington Post.

"They looked kind of like dragonflies or little helicopters," New York college student Vanessa Alarcon said after seeing the dragonflies while working at an antiwar rally in Lafayette Square last month.

The U.S. has used robotic fliers as early as World War II, but their numbers were fewer and the technology more primitive.

Well, IMHO this is true. Some times, our character is shaped by the adversity. What say you??


Oh lucky you, and the places you visited this Summer. Terrific!
We have a few really terrific guys here, they have a good perspective on life, stick around and chat with them.
