Well, here comes the rain! Glad I got the lawn done for the most part. Durn head cold is killing me though. I have NO clue where it came from, but I wish it would go away!

Could it be Paradise coal? That coal burn off has been around for many years now.

How can I NOT stay active? Too many people need me to stop and the CREATOR lets me keep going for now. If the rains hold off, I will be mowing again today. I had planned to mow yesterday until I found out that the old lady needed help.
We helped a lady out for years after years, she and her sisters and
in-laws stuck us with 30,000 dollars.

You are not that old AW, and I hope you don't think I was implying you were. I am just not at the stay at home stage you are and you are not that far ahead of me. I know you are a good looking man and with that stetson hat those ladies couldn't resist you either. Any one of them would be lucky to have time with you. You know how your email fan club feels about you. Right, lala?

Bet that pot pie was better than KFC could offer. Hope you got to mow today before the rain set in. It has just sprinkled here off and on.

Speaking of KFC, did you all see this on the news..haha

KFC smuggled through tunnels to Gaza 'dream come true'

In a testament to the Colonel's power, a fast food smuggling service sneaks KFC all the way from Egypt to the Gaza Strip for customers who pay triple the price just to get their hands on those secret herbs and spices. The 35-mile long journey through underground tunnels takes three hours from the Al-Arish KFC to Gaza and the company who supplies this vital service advertises, naturally, on Facebook. "It has been a dream, and this company has made my dream come true," said happy customer Rafat Shororo, an accountant who had tasted KFC in Egypt six long years ago and lusted for it ever since.

News video is great, this is what was on the news:

KFC smugglers deliver fast food the hard way

KFC meals are being ordered from Egypt and delivered via smuggling tunnels to the besieged Gaza Strip. Lily Grimes reports.

In honor of graduations everywhere...this is just too precious...

This pic of a service dog getting his just rewards will make your day

We have that warm and fuzzy feeling inside that must mean we've just spent too much time staring at an adorable picture of a dog. Meet Hero, a service dog who graduated with a master's degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign over the weekend. After an onlooker posted a photo of Hero and his co-graduate on reddit, Hero's owner posted another photo, introducing the world to her trusty companion. And according to her, Hero was way into the whole graduating thing (especially the cap and gown). "He loved it! He was like a celebrity! I think he realized it was a special day!" the woman commented, adding, "I couldn't have gone to college without him."

This is disgusting and that daughter should be ashamed. What is wrong with people? Dang, the courts should protect them, I don't care if it was past the statue of 4 years limitation. He is a WWII Veteran and he built the house. It's his.

91-Year-Old Man Raises Money to Prevent Eviction by Daughter

A 91-year-old man wants to stop his daughter from evicting him from the home he built 56 years ago in Zaleski, Ohio, a small community south of Columbus.

In 2004, John Potter and his wife, who has since died, gave the general power of attorney to his daughter for future matters if they declined in health, including to take care of her autistic adult brother, now 63.

But unbeknownst to Potter, his daughter Janice Cottrill eventually used that power to convey the deed to the one-story home to herself. In 2010, Potter said he learned of the deed transfer and switched power of attorney to his granddaughter, Jaclyn Fraley, now 35.

Potter, a World War II veteran and retired train dispatcher for the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, sued to get the home back, arguing that his daughter had transferred the deed to herself illegally because those with the power of attorney are not permitted to transfer assets to themselves from the estate they oversee.

To read entire article...with kleenex of course...

Resource Project
~ Videos of the Decorah Eagles ~

http://youtu.be/ImznzmLW6hw
Decorah Eagles, 2013-05-13 , 6.00am, Butterfly, head bonk, fresh fish. A little wingercizing, a little stick placement, a lot of flying in and out, and fish for breakfast.

http://youtu.be/KWUAsVSyONA
Decorah Eagles, 2013-05-13 , 5.00pm, Junior construction worker. The eaglets are getting ready for life outside the nest with a litte wingercizing, a little hopping, a little preening, and some construction work. Supper is served at around 6 minutes, with the whole family getting together for a meal.

I love the contrast between their beautiful feathered wings and stumpy little bodies and tails. Gary Bortolotti noted that eagles don't grow evenly - some parts reach full size before others, as a few shots in this video make very clear.

http://youtu.be/4X1lPEMPOyU
Decorah Eagles, 2013-05-14 , 5.00pm, Oriole, dropped stick, busy eagleport. The whole family is in the nest, along with a oriole perching on a stick at the left side of the nest. Everyone eats. The scene changes. The wind is really blowing, but it doesn't appear to worry the family at all. The scene changes again and the wind dies down.

In between bouts of eaglet activity, the eaglets spend time standing, preening, and watching. At 7:04, Mom flies in with a big stick, which she drops. The next few minutes are filled with fly-ins and outs and, at 9:25, a little nest-arranging.

I've talked before about my belief that animals and people share some emotions, but have others they don't share. I wonder how it feels when the urge to fly begins to scratch?

http://youtu.be/ubP2CioADb4
Decorah Eagles, 2013-05-13 , 11.00am, Exercising
The eaglets are wingercizing! We see flapping and some small hops. A parent comes into feed, which only takes a few minutes. The eaglets seem more interested in flapping than anything else. We see one of the other nest tenants when a little bird flies in at 3:08. A brief hop - or are my eyes tricking me?- happens at 4:20. At 6:12, we see an eaglet stand up very tall. We get frantic flapping at around 7:30.

They will be gone soon. They grow so fast. lol

13 funny photos of people who don't care what you think

Ever get to a point in life where you just don't give a sh*t anymore? These people certainly have. These liberated folks know it's tough to keep up with appearances all the time and have responded by not even trying. When presented with any "Should I..." question (ex: "Should I get dressed before I go to Starbucks?" "Should I wait to read Playboy?" "Should I put a shirt on before I leave the house?" etc.), they always know the answer: "Bah, screw it." And to be honest, while their actions may not be admirable, we kind of love their attitude. Scroll through the pics above for more funny examples of people who don't care what you think.

I am off to work. Volunteered to work my day off, but it is only for 5 hours. Off tomorrow. Wish I could stay home and take a nap. That rain that is starting to come down more steady makes me want to go sleep listening to it. lol

Hope you all have a great evening.:)

I am not a stay at home person except when I want to be. I get out several times each week. I just find much satisfaction in getting out and helping others that need things from time to time. Especially things that I can do and they cannot. I have just been to all the parties that I would ever need and prefer one-on-one time over group situations.

No rain here at all and I got the grass mowed.

Got the lawn cut. My neighbor weedeated. Wouldn't accept pay. Said the Lord would bless him. Well, Partner and I will make it up to him soon. I really hope he know I appreciate the kindness and thoughtfulness of his help.
@ AW glad you got your cutting finished as well. Cloudy evening. Your homemade pot pie sounds scrumptious. Your Ladies apparently appreciate you as well;) It's nice to hear that your chicks have been hatching. Those eggs can get expensive. I spend around $25 a month or more on brown, organic eggs. Good luck on your little hatchlings :)
My thoughts are with those without homes in Texas and the six families of those who lost their lives. May peace and love surround you.
@ AB, I agree about the Gentleman, a veteran and retired, whose daughter has taken his home. After being employed at a convalescent center, nothing is unbelievable to me. Where did respect, dignity and human kindness go? I loved my patients dearly. But to do this to one's Daddy is vile.
Pleasant evening to All.

I mow my neighbors lawn every time I do mine. I'd never take a dime for it.

But, I will take that peach cobbler...:)
