That's a good movie;) I like Pale Rider as well...Nothing like a good piece of hickory. Or something like that.
You and dog have a goodnight:) And hopefully the early morn won't be too chilly for you.

Thank you Ancient Wolf and all, for talking my ears off lol. I always feel better. Canning season just might be all done, maybe grapes, carrots still. Fryer chickens butchered. I think the hay is all done, that was not my category at all but to see to it mom's barn gets filled up. Still got trees to saw up. Can't seem to get away from the trees. Also, now where is that old rake?
I spread an old bedsheet and load it up, lots of loads, and instead of dumping the leaves out by the creek, I burn them because it smells so good and set and watch the fire.
I am trying to venture out and see other people these days too. I see people from way back and we get to talking and remember about all these other people to look up too, so hopefully, I get to look up cousins, and visit aunts and uncles.
Well, it's so late I am surely the only one around again, feels like an empty hall, so I will say 'goodnight all' and go on off to sleep too.

The only Musical movie I ever really liked was with him and Lee Marvin as "podners" in "Paint Your Wagons". It starts out with Eastwood's brother getting killed when a wagon runs off the side of a mountain and when they are digging his grave, they strike GOLD. They heave the body up in the air and off the side of the mountain and the movie just goes downhill from there. Lee Marvin was an old drunk and Eastwood was a farmer. Movie was quite silly in some parts.

Yep, soon be time to gather my walnuts and hickory nuts and spread them out to dry so this winter I can sit around my fire, read my books, crack nuts, pop some corn, bring in more firewood, carry out the ashes and Thank the GOOD LORD for each and every day that I can sit here thinking about all those people slipping and sliding trying to get somewhere to work for the man or those old ladies that see a cloud and think they better rush out to stock up on toilet paper. LOL

Submarine of the Civil War... I have often wondered how the first known submarine arrived at it's target since it had no steam power. I just now read that the Confederate CSS Hundley was towed to within about a mile of the target area and then "hand cranked" by the crew to turn the propeller shaft to finish the remaining distance.

Risky business since if they were successful in sinking an enemy ship, the spar pole that contained the explosive would be above them and might (and did) take them out as well, or the suction of the sinking enemy ship might drag them down also. And if neither of those things happened, then they had to get away with manual cranking from any other approaching enemy vessels since they only had the one explosive.

Fairly much a suicide mission.

Rebel Kamikazes? They must have been pretty brave and really believe in what they were fighting for. A watery death seems like a horrifying fate to me.
So you're saying that the explosive charge did kill the sub crew?

I had a girlfriend like that, if it so much as clouded up she had to run to the store for milk, bread, toilet paper ect.

Do you think you would ever take one again Wolf, I mean as a live in or even marry one again? I doubt if I will, Don't get me wrong:
I love women but I doubt if one will ever do much more than pass through, maybe put a dent in a pillow here, every now and then.

Exactly. I doubt that many would even won't to join my backwoods lifestyle nor would I want to take on the responsibility of filling up my days with needing to go visit Aunt Lucy or Cousin Pete or all the other in-laws and out-laws. I don't need my bed warmed that much anyways, and I can cook and clean and do laundry with the best. LOL "Drop-ins" are welcome from time, if they make an appointment. hehehe

With the over-crowding in the Civil War POW camps, the concept of offering "paroles" to captive prisoners of both sides began. A "parole" was simply the laying down of the arms and agreeing to abandon the fight and go home. I am sure some did while others agreed only for the moment.
With shortages of food and medicines and the overcrowding, the Commandant of Andersonville Prison (Henry Wirz) was hanged for war crimes but some Historians claim U.S. Grant was as much responsible as Wirz.
Andersonville was just built to hold abut 10,000 Union captives temporarily until they could be exchanged for Confederates POWs. Grant refused to do any exchanges and the camp swelled to 26,000 permanent residents with little to no food.

In Accounting terms, there is the "T" graph with the liabilities on one side and the assets on the other. From my perspective on women, the liabilities seem to over balance the scale while the assets mainly on the couch. LOL
