Started wheat harvest
Why do people own horses? Looking at them objectively, unless you are using them to herd livestock, traverse terrain a machine cannot, or you're Amish, owning a horse really makes no sense. Owning more than one horse makes even less sense!
And the money these folks put into these walking glue bottles! The trucks, trailers, tack, clothes, not to mention the feed and grooming supplies.
Now, I can understand a smaller animal, like a dog or cat, but a big animal like a horse will nearly put you in the poorhouse (well, at least until the state did away with them - maybe the term should be "put you on welfare").
Oh well, I should consider them a potential customer for my wares at some point...what makes no sense still can provide an income to others, I suppose.
I think the Democratic outrage about Scooter Libby's commuted sentence is great fun and entertainment. Jesse Jackson Jr calling for impeachment, Hillary and Mr. Hillary speaking out with indignation, as if Bill wasn't in the same hot water before.
I think G Dub ought to do more things like this, more so toward the end of his term. Really turn the screws on the D's. It might backfire, however, if doing so costs the Republicans the election. But, anytime you can make a liberal Democrat squeal is great fun and frivolity.
Just got done watching the town's fireworks display with my wife and 2 year old daughter. The display was just over a mile away from our house (I counted the seconds between the explosions and the "boom", and it was between 8 and 9 seconds, just right!). It was fun to hear her say "boom", "pretty", and "rellow" (red and yellow). She really enjoyed it, and we did too. While going to the display would have been "proper", it was nice to be able to sit in our house, have a quiet conversation, and hear everything that popped out of our little redhead. The boy had already gone to bed, and while it would have been interesting to hear his thoughts about the fireworks, he probably would have started picking on his sister at some point, and there goes the fun. We'll try to take in a parade tomorrow and see how they get along.
Have a safe 4th of July, and remember the true reason we observe it: To help Lee Greenwood keep milking that cash cow of a song called "God Bless The USA".
Or maybe it's our declaration of independence from England. Yeah, let's go with that one.
