Wait a minute! How’d those little critters get the lid off of a metal trash can. Maybe a raccoon could’ve done it, definitely a bear, but not a squirrel and cat. Back when I had a horse, I kept his oats in a plastic barrel, and a squirrel was able to get in by gnawing a hole in the lid … and then couldn’t get out because there was only a couple inches left in the bottom of a 30 gal. barrel. I tipped him, and the remaining contaminated oats out (he’d peed on them in his panic) and replace the barrel with a metal one. Never had a problem after that.
River cruise up the Columbia in the Pacific Northwest is my dream cruise. Followed by most any other river cruise. But my dream vacation, realized for 15 years running, was 3 weeks at my favorite Arizona dude ranch, riding horses across the desert.
Probably because Trudeau didn’t show Mike grabbing his hair in both hands and pulling it in an excess of emotion!
Yeah, creepy, and a chin would be nice too. And a shave, and something dressier than a t-shirt.
Chihuahuas bite just as many people, if not many more! But their bites are tiny, causing little damage. It’s just that when one of those larger dogs with such powerful jaws bites someone, the bite is severe … and sometimes fatal.
From your lips to God’s ear … the God who is probably still sputtering in indignation over Trump’s “Photo Op” in front of that Washington Episcopal Church. I know the Episcopalian bishops were deeply offended because they let every congregation know, even ours way out here in SoCal.
Don’t worry, kids. Everybody out here loves all of you inside your amazing, fantastical box. And more than a few of us wish we could join you and fly with Hammy and his adorable butterflies!
Of course not! He’s wearing his victory suit!
Well, I really love me! And I want me to live to a healthy 100, I go with the odds. I got the COVID vaccine and all its boosters, so I I’m less likely to die of COVID. Just like I’m less likely to die of smallpox, tetanus, measles, pneumonia, RSV, flu, or any number of other diseases I’ve protected myself against. Shingles isn’t fatal (you just wish you could die), but I’m protected against that too. And so far, they’re working! I haven’t even had the flu in over two decades, not since I’ve been getting annual flu shots. So, I go with the odds, and I go with the science … probably because I have both a B.S. and an M.S. and I KNOW how that science is done, and I trust the process.
When it happened is vastly less important (and equally less interesting, particularly to someone Calvin’s age) than why it happened, what message were the “Tea Partyers” trying to send, and how the British reacted to it. History is only a tiny bit about dates (which are mainly useful for sorting events into chronological order) and mostly about people—like you and me—doing things that resonate down through the years.
