Deer Hunting Season Is Upon Us

I'm starting to get a little nervous.....Fall us upon us and rutting season is just around the corner. What's that mean for me?

Well last year it meant I got more deer with my Buick than Dad did from his tree stand.

Isn't that picture cute? Well let me tell you something - they are NOT cute when they jump in front of your car.

It wasn't cute the first time.
It wasn't cute the second time.
And it certainly was not cute the third time.

I hope they've all got my license number & a description of my car - maybe they'll be on the look-out and avoid running out in front of me this year.

Rosa Parks, Dead at age 92

Parks, 92, died around 7 p.m. Monday at St. John Hospital on Detroit’s east side.

Parks’ refusal to give up her bus seat to a white man in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1955 landed her in jail and sparked a bus boycott that is considered the start of the modern civil rights movement. The bus is on display at the Henry Ford Museum, Dearborn.

Parks, was born Feb. 4, 1913, in Tuskegee, Alabama. She lived in Detroit.

In "Quiet Strength," a book of reflections published in 1994, she wrote: "I want to be remembered as a person who stood up to injustice, who wanted a better world for young people; and most of all, I want to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free and wanted others to be free."

"I had no idea when I refused to give up my seat on that Montgomery bus that my small action would help put an end to the segregation laws of the South," she said in her autobiography. "I only knew that I was tired of being pushed around." - Rosa Parks

What an amazing woman.

What Your Blog Says About You...

I saw this on another blog I read frequently and while I was not tagged, it did think it interesting. The idea is to find your 23rd post on your blog - and then the fifth sentence. This sentence is supposed to 'say something about you.'

What does my post say? The 5th sentence of my 23rd post is a two word sentence.

"Jack squat."

Great - love what that says about me.

Update on Dad

I just realized with all that's been going on, I never updated on Dad!! I'm so so so sorry!!!

Dad is home and is recovering well. He still needs lots of rest but he no longer needs his walker to get around most of the time. Dad even went to the mall with Mom to get a new cell phone yesterday! That's a big deal because his energy level is non-existent. He finally got his pacemaker put in and that went well. He is still recovering from broken ribs and does not have the o.k. to drive yet but that will all take time.

Thank you all again for your prayers - they made such a difference. May God bless you all as you have blessed my family. :)

Holly the Cat

I have always told people my cat is NOT normal. She let a mouse steal so much of her food last winter that she was losing weight (took us awhile to figure out it was a mouse, we thought she was ill). Now I have proof that she's just not right.

Holly is lovable, will purr at the slightest touch, takes turns sleeping with every member of the household, and is always a happy animal. But, somehow I've always thought, something wasn't right. Now I know why.

Last week I caught her up on the table next to the hamster cage. Initially I thought she was trying to get a little snack. I stopped & looked for a minute and just about the time I realized what was happening, Alien #1 says, "Look Mom! She's giving Sparky a bath!!" The Alien was correct. Holly was grooming the hamster. How weird is that?

Like I said - NOT normal.

Revenge Is Sweet

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A Swedish hunter was knocked unconscious after his son shot a flying Canada goose which then fell onto his head, news agency TT reported Wednesday.

"I guess it wanted revenge," hunter Ulf Ilback told local newspaper Extra Ostergotland, according to TT.

Ilback said he had to stay in bed for two days after being knocked out by the goose, which fell from around 60 feet. The birds can weigh up 13 pounds.

I'd hate to think what would happen if the deer I hit last year wanted to seek revenge on me!! hehehehe
