Well,
 
   I guess you have heard the weather reports from here, and possibly got some rain yourself. Now it's our turn to host the sorry ole birds who do construction scams. If you see lots of (toilet and other) paper and eagle feathers falling from the sky you know they were likely picked up somewhere in Oklahoma and dropped, like Dorothy from the sky. If any of the papers are stocks and bonds, just burn them for kindling unless they are Oklahoma issued stocks or Bonds, which are still worth something if they are not oil related. Otherwise they were most likely left out for the 85-100mph winds to catch on purpose.
 
   Ole VV may be catching the brunt of the storms tonight, when they are supposed to stretch from the Ohio river valley south through Tenn. where like us they are still cleaning up from ice storms that did much more damage there than here. We had a warm windy week between the ice storm and the tornadoes, that brought wildfires and grassfires. I think it was a mistake to send you back your Hornets, then invite the Thunder to take their place. It's like we are begging for the wrath...
 
   Well, with the fatalities this is about as close to humor as I can get on this subject, but I hope you are feeling better and can see the irony in all this. Have a good day. Let us know how you are doing. I am trying bone builders, and experimenting with trace minerals (like sea water and sea salt) to see if it helps with the low back and leg pain, I 'll let you know how it works out. Take care, we miss you.

margie, we've just had a week solid of 40s - 60s, and finally got rid of all of our snow. BUT, tomorrow we have a chance for between 3 to 8 inches of new crap. the only consolation is that it won't be on top of all the old stuff like we experienced all winter. the last three storms have formed up south of us and just barely brushed us on their way east. we took this little opportunity to replace our defective roof that the manufacturer doesn't stand behind. i know i can't name the company, but i'm certain(ly) teed off about a 35 year roof that only lasted 7 years and they offer less than $500 to cover it. it's costing $5,000 to replace it, and a membership in the class action litigation club (one that has thousands of members now). this wasn't a scamming contractor, but a company without a conscience.


march 1st is 'my' first 'official' day of spring. things really start changing around here. the sun is getting stronger, and the days are getting longer. even if we get snow (which really doesn't happen much in march - oh, yeah, you'll occasionally find an old timer like sniper, that'll go on and on about back in 'my day'..........) it doesn't stay long. been ridin' this week, and i'm just beside myself............oh, hello there! scool scool

VV!! Thanks for mentioning your litigation club membership. I googled your club and it sounds expensive and very aggravating to join. I am about to interview contractors to replace my old roof and I certain-ly will be careful not to get teed-offed! You have done me a great favor! VV you are my hero!

Sniper,

  Good to hear from you. How are the ole (not old) joints doing. I think the trace minerals I have been using are helping. I'm hoping to feel like Wonder Woman again soon. I was 6 feet tall and bullet proof last week after the scope, when thay gave me lots of fentanyl. I have not been that pain free for some time. After that perfact scope, I'm going to work on the reactive arthritis angle. I can't really blame it on the Crohn's, the scope looked like a healthy persons.

Sno,

  I think they decided the OKC tornados were f2-f3 and the Lone Grove tornado was a f4. I sat in a park near my house that day and felt at least 3 temp changes of about 10 degrees each, warm, cool. warm, cold, then very warm, and cool, with very little wind direction shift. My ears popped, but the usual calm that follows did not come. Then I realized that the tornado was well to my northwest. This was almost as strange as all the thunder sleet we recieved last year- Strange days indeed!

Margie I'm still fighting the fight. The MRI results of my back were not the best news and now I'm having therapy. OUCH . I really dont think there are too many more places for scars on this old bod and dont want any new ones .So far all my scars are on the front because I try not to run away from trouble . Back surgery would be on a clean canvas.. Cant have that.. Plus Ive known people in worse shape after being cut on for back trouble so its a last resort. This week Ive had two doc apts, three therapy apts, plus a funeral and serveral trips over two hours to take care of business and other family matters. Plus I'm fighting a sinus infection. My date book looks like Im a stinkin politician. Ive been busier than a one legged man in a butt kickin contest. I know I'm running on fumes right now and will crash and burn soon so I'll try to chill out this weekend. What I need to do is role up in a little ball and sleep,,,Yeh ,,,thats going to happen...You keep your head down over there. Old VV may throw a snow ball at you..

Did Attila go through Scotland??   shakehead     Are you originally from the steppes of Russia????  confused

If you have deep roots in Scotland, then you probably have Celtic blood.  So instead of Attila, I would believe you were Brennus, the Celtic leader who sacked Rome in 390 BC.  The 'gaul' of you, especially since you went home after they paid you a ransom.  But they deserved to be sacked, so good job!  yeah

Sno,

I can't buy the Attila bit. I have known and loved the former Hun, she taught me the Pawn business in 1985, after she was burned in Salem and has been living in Arizona since 1995, after she left OKC around the time of the OKC bombing. I wasn't cursing you, just reminding you to let em keep their Witch burning Karma to themselves! Poor witches, just trying to keep their families healthy. Leave it to Sniper and VV to soundly take this thread to the potty, and on the first page, too.

eyes Trust ole' VV to rabbit in.... idea or should that be, be rabbiting on ? wink
Well of course, as we all know by the number of persons who were Cleopatra in a past life, geographical location has nothing to do with reincarnation. (Not that I know much about it. I used to think it meant recycled tinned condensed milk, or something to do with flowers. tongue)
Wouldn't have minded being Brennus in a past life, Fall, he was one of the good guys from what I hear if I am thinking of the same person you are. Was he the guy whose funerary treasure is still being searched for ? The Huns, Goths and Vandals certainly got a bad press over all that sacking, yet it was incompetent management and unpaid debts that sank the city in the end...hmm, what does that remind us of ? wink Me, the only sacking I have is the hessian I store potatoes in. wink
Sniper, your comments are just what I would expect from a wag, but never think for a moment that I feel hounded by you. You have the right of it, the poop deck with it's transom was indeed where the offboard toilets were often located. shocked (And you thought you had problems with high powered jets of cold water when you went !) And to this day, the phrase "I'm pooped" indicating exhaustion, comes from the fact that a sailing ship in a storm, could be instantly swamped by a wave coming from astern over the poop deck, surprising an unwary steersman.
nono VV, if you knew how much Charmin I get through, you wouldn't call me "Winnae" the Pooh....more like "Will Pooh !" yeah
Although I like to think of myself as a hunny...I am all too often considered by my friends and family to be miss beehiving, they don't like puns. smilewinkgrin Can't think why.

yeah Time to backpedal eh Marg, in case I didn't know witch way to take the warning ? smilewinkgrin
I know very little about the Salem witches - not a cultural icon over here - but I seem to remember reading a National Geographic article once which propounded the theory, based on maps and documents, that the accusers were landowners or householders who had cheated or otherwise mistreated eldely or less well off neighbours; and the supposed witches were...yep, you guessed it...the downtrodden. I think there is a very profound truth about human nature and demonisation there, I wonder what the Israelis would say ?
But we had better be careful what we say here on the subject of witches, Broomhilde might be lurking in flight above our very heads even as we speak.... yeah
eyes Is that the rustling of twigs I hear going past ? shocked

Sno I think your more familiar with the Druid than the Salem lot. I would put more stock in the Delphic Oracle but for the fumes that seeped up from below and who knows what they were sniffing,, Nope ,, my money has always been on the Sybles. Odd that Margie would mention witches being that we are all ,,crones. No evil intended Broomhilda. Now all we need is VV to tell us how cold it is and I could explain the true mark of cold as in nautical terms. Next to a ships canon was a plate with dents in it. The canon balls were stacked on it to keep them from rolling. It was called a monkey. It was made from brass to keep the balls from rusting to it,, thus,, a brass monkey. Though brass does not rust, it does expand and contract more with temperature than iron and on very very cold nights it could contract enough for the canon balls to pop off and go rolling ,, Thus the expression ,,cold enough to freeze the ----s off a brass monkey. I had to edit that because people have such dirty little minds. The saying its self has nothing to do with what people think. And now we know where all your little minds are and again I get blamed for a flushing. Woe is me.

Ok I'm just going to post so I can say Broomhilda one more time so she will show up and weigh in. (not a fishy reference) The third times a charm, now she can come school us!

In the late '80's I read a book called Black Elk Speaks. One of the stories that Black Elk retells to the writer is about Crazy Horse under attack, when he was still free. He sat on his horse surrounded by Army and Navy men who were out to end the insanity. He was pelted with musket balls, and he just laughed and rode away. Black Elk stated that Crazy Horse must have taken 200-300 direct hits. This took everybody by storm, as he removed the sash from his shirt, the musket balls fell to the ground and rolled, as CH laughed and rode away.

 

   A year or so after I read that book, I ran across an article about the freedom of information act, and it said that some of the materials released were quite embarrassing to our government. It seems the journals of the military men from Crazy Horses day were filled with accounts of how the men were forever fearful of the American Indians and their "Magic" from that day forward. The writer made the comment "who were the pagans here anyway?".

 

  This always reminded me of the Salem deaths, kill what you fear. In the case of Crazy Horse, he had anticipated the attack and for a few nights he wrapped layers of wet buck hide around the trunk of his body, then slept near the fire. He was nicely armored against the musket balls, with their low velocity. So why were christian soldiers so spooked, and did they have a sense of how wrong they really were?
