Rattlesnake PT2: repost from ebay

OKAY got the mess scared out of mePosted Sep-20-08 14:44:22 PDTSeems we have a HUGE rattlesnake hiding out near one of our coops. This sucker is long over 5 foot. Hubby went next door to get the neighbors 22. HOLEY MOLEY, told him three weeks ago I found a large snake shed but, NOOOOOOOOO!

So, he saw it and came back to the house. It went under a large round of hay. Now hubby and the neighbors are thrashing around outside trying to find it. WTH, does any man listen to a woman. Told him they would not find that her,,,,yes I know its a female. Grrrrrrrr

Gun debate, get one or not to get one?Posted Sep-21-08 07:15:08 PDTThat is the question...........After hubby finally saw the rattler I have told him about, seen her and found her shed. He just did not believe me I guess. You can read the post from yesterday when he spotted her. So, now our heated discussion is to buy and kept a shotgun.

He is for buying and I am against. Mind you, I know how he keeps care of his tools. (I am the one who picks them up and puts them back in his work shop.) So, my arguement is no way because even if the gun is kept in a gun safe; he would leave the keys hanging around.

---Both my sons are very adept hunters of small objects----

Next point, though we did kill the yearling ratter last week. I did not feel bad about killing it for the simple reason it was much harder to see, it did not rattle, and was laying in ambush mode. The five foot snake on the other hand, has lived a long time and has the "right" genes to pass on to future generations, and was not in our walking path.

OPINIONS welcome here:

There was always a housefull of kids in our home watching TV, doing homework, hanging out while we were both home and away. Never an incident.

ON THE OTHER HAND .. my husband's cousin who had two boys the same age as our kids had an arsonal as well ... guns were never locked up ... the kids played with them and shot them off in the house ... they also burned the neighbor's barn down and ACCIDENTLY cut half their little sister's foot off with the lawn mower.

You and only you can make your home safe ... the only killing that went on in our home was when the hunting dogs killed my chickens.

Baby Rattle Snake; Repost from Ebay

This is what I almost stepped on this morning.  Seems the animals are confused with the Texas weather.  This one was curled up and I almost stepped on top of it while in my yard. It was like 14 inches long, only had 2 buttons, had just fed and did NOT RATTLE because it was digesting its food. 


I got hubby and showed him and then he took the shovel and beheaded it. My boys walk through the yard all the time with sandals and such. Not after today, we are going to buy work boots.

And here are my first two towel hangars I taught myself to make with the advice of frodobaggins and mynetoo.  Thanks Ladies, I have another 4 done and they are looking better with each one I practice.  My sister just bought her first home and I am making a load of hand made crocheted: hand towels, dish cloths, doilies, table runners to decorate her home.  Also will be making about 75 of these as Christmas gifts for others in our extended families.

19 Days, Waterfall, and dragonflies
.
Posted Sep-04-08 15:27:00 PDTI have been thinking of you for a long time almost as long as I walked with JoJo; though we have never formally met. Each time I focus on you with mediation and prayer; I get inner image of you--of dragonflies on summer breezes, green foliage, and warm smiles. I know of your pain, uncertainty, and fierce hope because I once held those traits close at hand.

.

Boddhi knows how much you care for him; I can feel it in the man that he has become and is expressed through his art. You taught him how to love himself, his daughter and the world and this is also depicted in his artwork. Sometimes though, his ‘old soul’ needs to roam to find spiritual fulfillment and to seek out new experiences. He knows he is dying (albeit we all are) but not with the finality of his cancer sentence. Boddhi does not mean to hurt you; he is just following his path to assuage his own guilt, sins and other let downs.

.

Now on to the waterfall, Kat all I can tell you here is; tears for you are okay. When I think of your waterfall; I believe perhaps it is our Creator’s way of being fruitful though you. Water is one of our life sustaining forces because much like our other needs without it we die. So perhaps your Waterfall moment is what refreshes you enough to carry on in this time of your life.

.

Just know, I think of you always. I come to the blogs to find your words.
.
Don’t give up,
.

For Dobbs, wrong convictions: repost from ebay

Wrongful convictions or bearing false witness. (FOR A TALK AROUND SENIOR FEMALE)
.
Posted Sep-06-08 17:39:27 PDTLast night an interesting conversation took place between myself and another. Basically the story given by this blogger was she was giving facts whereas, I was bragging about education, experience, and talking down to others.
.
"I DID NOT SAY YOUR NAME."
.
Yet, when I put her comments within her blog thread and from a male blogger's post including similiar comments from my own. The above phrase was offered as a whimsical faulty reasoning. So, this got me thinking.
.
If said blogger, a devout Christain was not in fact talking about me then she was "bearing false witness" against another thus breaking the 9th Commandment of the Bible. In the days of ancient Hebrews, the 'WITNESS' who gave testimony thus became another person's prosecutor. And in ancient times an accused person could be PUT TO DEATH over a malicious person "bearing false witness."
.
After reading this and reflecting, that by 'talking around' and not actually saying or typing a person's name does not absolve a person from always telling the truth when confronted. In my opinion, lying against another fits into the 9th Commandment.
.

So, as I sit here and ask myself. Have you committed this act? I am positive I have, thing is when I am questioned. As uncomfortable as I find myself feeling at the confrontation I will tell the truth.
.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. (Exodus 20:16)

What a Beautiful day!
Posted Sep-01-08 18:32:03 PDTMy hubby's relatives came over for a grill out! So my boys spent the day with their Abuela, Tia Liela, Tios Richard & James. It was fun watching them with their relatives especially when they are conversing in Spanish. They even tried on their own to speak with them and share funny farm stories.
.
With our guests, we mowed grass, finished a goat shelter, nursed a sick rooster, feed animals, washed dishes and ate together. I taught the two ladies how to attach chain stitches to towel so a crocheted top could be added to it to form towel hanger. Hopefully, soon they can return the favor and teach me more of their cooking skills. THOSE TWO CAN REALLY COOK!
.
Hugs to all & I hope you slice of heaven on this Labor Day was fulfilling.

Pre Gustav: repost from ebay

Howdy Hoe Blog Neighbors
Posted Aug-31-08 13:06:17 PDTWas out with my family enjoying the super humid weather. We decided to take the boys out of the house in case, the weather turns bad later this week. Hubby and I discussed Hurricane Gustav and Hannah with them so they would understand what was happening on tv. Saenz remembered the FEMA trailers in Lousianna and he asked how those would stay up right in high winds.
.
This was tough and we told him simply we hoped the winds would quiet down or that the trailers were tied down really well. Soon, I will be joining my hubby on a FOD walk around our property in case the winds do pick up and we'll trim tree branches this afternoon in our yard. We will also add a 3rd wall to the goat pen so they can stay dry.
.
Nekkid Chicken just thinking about those in harms way.

Instigator: repost from ebay

Sometimes I like to pick an arguement.
Posted Aug-30-08 17:20:55 PDTIt's the debater in me. Tonight, while talking with my 68 year old father. I asked him what he thought of the DNC this passed week.

TO QUOTE: "Anyone who votes for Obama is a STUPID IDIOT.

Immediately I thought of Dinners here on the blogs.

So, I asked him if he thought McCain will win.

"He picked a good candidate in Palin, she is one mean azzed woman. (ROFL) And if someone screws up she will call them out on it."

So what woman here on the blogs calls people on their stupidity?

I like debates, especially if they lead to good conversations with good arguments/points on each side.

I don't like fighting for the sake of fighting.

I can have a sharp tongue, but I don't give it much free rein here. You'd see a whole other side if I did, but I've worked for years on moderating it.

I prefer sardonic humor to out and out battling. The ones who forget there are people on the other side of the connection don't deserve consideration.

Pet Death: repost from ebay

Pet Death: Goodbye Rocky
Posted Aug-30-08 08:59:30 PDT Updated Aug-30-08 09:00:28 PDTSaenz's pet snake died last night. This morning we have been busy with allowing Saenz to decide how we should honor Rocky. Actually he has taken the loss quite well. He made the decision to cremate Rocky and then we will bury the ashes this afternoon under the oak tree. The one thing about living with animals or humans is loss never gets easier even for children-- or adults.

Two years ago, Saenz would have been a puddle of mush and crying hysterics over the loss of a pet. Now, he is able to rationally think and plan a funeral while grieving over the loss of a friend. Later, we will say our eulogies, shed tears and hold each other. The one thing in which gives my family strength is our tight knit way of handling even the awful sides of life--part of our family glue.

Good bye & Hugs Rocky

May you find a lovely tree in heaven in which to wrap your coils around.

SEETHER LYRICS

Fake It Ringtone
Complimentary "Fake It" Ringtone Fake It Ringtones


"Fake It"

Who's to know if your soul will fade at all
The one you sold to fool the world
You lost your self-esteem along the way
Yeah

[Chorus:]
Good god you're coming up with reasons
Good god you're dragging it out
Good god it's the changing of the seasons
I feel so raped
So follow me down
And just fake it if you're out of direction
Fake it if you don't belong here
Fake it if you feel like affection
Woah you're such a fucking hypocrite

And you should know that the lies won't hide your flaws
No sense in hiding all of yours
You gave up on your dreams along the way
Yeah

[Chorus]

Whoah
Whoah

I can fake with the best of anyone
I can fake with the best of em all
I can fake with the best of anyone
I can fake it all

Who's to know if your soul will fade at all
The one you sold to fool the world
You lost your self-esteem along the way
Yeah

[Chorus]

Fake it if you're out of direction
Fake it if you don't belong here
Fake it if you feel like infection
Woah you're such a fucking hypocrite

Yet, I Still Breathe
Posted Aug-25-08 13:38:14 PDT Updated Aug-25-08 14:01:03 PDT
Sometimes the breath stops in my chest
With such force time stills--until I hear my heartbeat
You’ve been gone awhile, with no returning
A simple thing can set off my tears
A buzzing bee, a whiff of smoke, straw condoms
A silent thief, stealing with vengeance
Dust mote memories; jagged scars left behind
Calloused your hardened hands, a mechanic
Blue collared and hard bent on raising hell
Walking the path less travelled
Peals of laughter; sun crinkles in time-marked face
Pain followed your every step
You were my strength; with valor
So much courage in a young heart
Some are born old leaving behind wisdom
Others are left wrung out by their fading light
Yet, I still breathe

Ode to Jo Jo

Mal...My Gran told me this, upon losing a dear friend: She has walked but a short few steps up that path and pauses to wait for you. When the time is right, you will continue the journey together. ((hugs)) *Goth*

She always made fun of me woofers. Because I would leave the paper on the sipping end of straws. Because of flies, keeps their bacteria from entering your mouth. She called them: STRAW CONDOMS.

:D at the straw condoms Mal. Have you had a virtual wake for JoJo Mal? Get drunker n drunk (not really just virtually) and tell every funny thing about JOJO that can bring a smile to your face. Conjure up the happy memories to hug the sad?

This was written by Bengal55. "...From Bengal55 "...when we 'loose' someone ; they are as close as before, form may be different , but love and care are of God, He never changes. i believe all stay within His hands and a circle - albeit one we do not now see is added to. Remember the good... it cannot ever leave , but grows as you pass along what you have learned from the encounter. Peace to you and your Spirit." Hugs.

Ann, Straw Condoms for all!
Posted Aug-25-08 15:56:23 PDT Updated Aug-25-08 16:21:29 PDT
What set off my sadness today was cleaning the desk I 'bought' from her. As I was preparing the piece of furniture for repair and refinishing. The thought of 'her finger prints' missing forever from the desk--just made me cry. grieve and feel sad.
'Straw Condoms' are the pieces of paper I left on drinking straws because I can't stomach the thought of flies on my straws. Too many years in the military in foreign countries.
Jo Jo used to tease the absolute crap out me because I was germ cautious. Thanks Ann, you made me smile and cry-but in a good way!

saenzmom, our thoughts are with you tonight. It seems you've been blessed with someone special, and loss is never easy no matter the amount of time that goes by. You are in our prayers tonight.

Hey Mal Bengal55 Wrote this "...when we 'loose' someone ; they are as close as before, form may be different , but love and care are of God, He never changes. i believe all stay within His hands and a circle - albeit one we do not now see is added to. Remember the good... it cannot ever leave , but grows as you pass along what you have learned from the encounter. Peace to you and your Spirit..." Hugs. Nothing wrong with crying. Especially not when you've lost someone so close. My email is currently out to lunch or would have emailed. I'm going to link your poem to my blog. It was just beautiful. Lots of folks thinking of you. Ann.
