Dan, the adminstration conveniently changed the rules, aided and abetted by the Supreme Court - from the 'election' to present day. The people of Iraq will never recover from gwb's 'democracy' - the rich of America and the few families that control the wealth of the nation benefit.

Heartbreaking are American troops dieing for gwb's lies - the countless Iraqi citizens destroyed for a few barrels of oil and corporate greed. Worse than shameful.

Set, the dogs and I had a great morning at the beach. I'm on doggie lunch duty - the broth is perking - and both of the dogs have passed out from their adventuring.

Lovely photos, Walter. The Fall season is just beginning here also, just a tinge of color, but we have had rain for the past few days - and light winds transfering dust from the pine forest to you guessed it - the yards, landscaping, porches and birdfeeders. The vacuum cleaner and I are joined at the hip! ahchoo!

Alicia is still in critical condition, but is following with her eyes the movements of her mom who hasn't left Alicia's bedside since the accident. Family and friends gather daily in support of Alicia, her mom, dad, and brother who are hopeful as we all are, their daughters recovery will be swift. Praying and sending good thoughts. Thanks, Walter.

Same here Stradee, thinking and saying prayer for Alicia. Hoping all will be well.

Walter, great photos!! I can smell the photos....... Great. I also see in the distance the wind generators. That's a good thing. Wishing I could be there for a taste. MMMMMMMM

ehBeth, the photo was taken during my senior year in high school - at the time I was very active in training horses and riding in rodeos around this part of TX and LA. Just today, I was fast forwarding through the movie "8 Seconds" to watch another movie behind it - when I recalled an event that happened about a year before the photo in uniform was taken. At rodeos - the bulls are named and "usually" they perform the same way approximately each time they are turned loose with a rider in the arena. Well, the clowns are usually the ones who know how the bulls react - and, this one night I was on a bull the clown told me to avoid after riding because it would turn and attack the rider. I said thanks for the info. Got ready - told the guys to open the gate and went for a ride. I did well and heard the 8 second buzzer sound - I then bailed off the bull and started running for the fence - which was about eight feet high, solid boards. I hit the board about midway up from the bottom and vaulted over the top at the same time I heard the bull slam into the fence at full speed. The clown was right.
Another time, the clown had told me the bull I had drawn would - when the gate opened, buck two times straight out toward the middle of the arena and then turn left sharply and buck around the side of the arena. No problem - I thought....... I sat down on the animal and after I was good to go - motioned the gate men. After two great jumps toward the center of the arena - I leaned left in expectation of the turn the clown told me about. What I saw was the umpires black and white striped shirt as he hit the bulls nose with his clipboard that he kept score on.......Needless to say I and the bull separated and it wasn't a good nights riding. But, the clown had been right except for the unforseeable umpire misguiding the bull in the wrong direction.

Such is life - you do the best you can - and next time - do the best you can.

Very Happy

Danon, your smile and your eyes haven't changed.
More stories, please.

Stradee, I hope Alicia is feeling better every day.

Walter,
you captured the fall feeling. Early morning mist, then sunshine.

Class and I were out in the vineyards, helping harvesting the grapes.

Alicia's still in a coma, but we are hopeful, thanks ul.

Georgous Autumn weather, maples starting to turn colors of red and orange, lily, birch, liquid ambers, heavenly bamboo, beginning to nod and yawn - preparing for another cold winter.

Dinner, movies, grooming babies...

Free day tomorrow hurray!

Where does the time go??? past... {grin}
