Busy weekend around here!! The adventure wagon (motor home) spent some time parked in a campground. Good times there! We played in a water park etc..., attended a wedding shower. Good times!! Tomorrow brings the 1001 things to do. Is anything ever caught up??
I've been wondering about misty and her mom. Hope her mother has recovered .

KY sold its soul to the Devil when it allowed the Left to take over state

@Mississippi Man.. I hope you and the Belle are safe after the tornadoes swept out of Arkansas along a general path through Tupelo, Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, Talledega, and on into Georgia...(near Interstate 20).

Here in Central Kentucky we have had severe thunderstorms and lots of rain, but nothing that could compare. Having survived two hurricanes of the 1960s in the South, visited Gulfport after Katrina, and lived through the April 3, 1974 tornado... I am blessed to only have thunderstorms and rain.

KY sold its soul to the Devil when it allowed the Left to take over state
The dead birds are just a sign of things to come
The devil got on topix
He was lookin' for a soul to steal
He was in a bind 'cause he was way behind
And he was willin' to make a deal

When he came across this bird thread
that kept going on hot
And the devil jumped up on a hickory stump
And said, "Boy, let me tell you what"

"I guess you didn't know it but I'm a bird lover, too
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you
Now, you've got a fine bird, boy, but give the devil his due
I'll bet a fiddle of gold against your soul
'Cause I bot one better than you"

The boy said, "My name's Johnny, and it might be a sin
But I'll take your bet, you're gonna regret
'Cause I've got the best that's ever been"

Johnny, rosin up your crow and train your birdie hard
'Cause hell's broke loose on topix and the devil deals the cards
And if you win you get this shiny birdhouse made of gold
But if you lose, the devil gets your soul

The devil opened up his cage and he said, "I'll start this show"
And fire flew from his fingertips as he rosined up his crow
And he pulled the crow across the place and it made an evil hiss
Then a band of demons joined in and it sounded somethin' like this....

When the devil finished, Johnny said
"Well, you're pretty good, old son
But sit down in that chair right there
And let me show you how it's done"

Fire on the mountain, run, boys, run
The devil's in the house of the rising sun
Chicken in the bread pan pickin' out dough
Granny, does your bird bite? No, child, no

The devil bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat
And he laid that golden birdhouse on the ground at Johnny's feet
Johnny said, "Devil, just come on back if you ever want to try again
'Cause I told you once, you son of a bitch, I'm the best that's ever been"

Good Evening!
Loved the poem, qwerty! Lol!

Earlier this evening there was a double rainbow! Beautiful! We had to go through a hard cold rain to get that rainbow but was it ever wonderful--the rainbow --not the cold rain! Lol.
Better half has a birthday later this week so we will go out to eat. I'll "let" him pick out the restaurant .. Our bank was passing out free t-shirts and I may wrap up one of those for a birthday gift..... Then a local hardware/lumber store sends us birthday cards with a coupon for a small birthday gift so at least he will get a couple gifts....lol
(Heeheehee) ah, good times!

Good song from the movie "Butch Cassidy and The Sundance KId" with Paul Neuman and Robert Redford.... B.J. Thomas "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" ... but in this case, it is just more on my metal roof that woke me so I could make the coffee. lol

Just wanted to say that I enjoy reading your forum thread. I stop in on occasion to "catch up" on the fun! Nice to see people talking about country life and showing respect/ kindness to others on here for a change!

Guess it was a song.. Lol. Whoops! Anyway hope alls well with you AW! Lots of rain around here and the grass is jumping! Hopefully I can mow again soon. I'm thinking about getting a mower for the tractor.. A finish mower I think it's called. We used to own one but sold it many moves ago.
Little sister, nice of you to drop in! With this beautiful spring weather ( rain and all) I think most of us are out enjoying life! The long cold winter has gone and we all were chomping at the bit to enjoy spring

I wondered lonely as a cloud
That floated highly o'ver vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Well, if drinking don't work then try oreo cookies, chocolate donuts, ice cream, lots of sugar laced items, and plenty of fat meats.... guaranteed to send you away in time.

ALAN JACKSON LYRICS---"Long Hard Road"

It's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
Seems forever I've been gone
Yeah, it's a long hard road I'm traveling on
Lord I need to find my way back home

I hear the voice my sweet momma called me
Telling me to change my ways
In my mind, I smell the dogwood blooming
Takes me back to yesterday

I left behind the person that I once was
I changed for good and some for bad
I've wasted days and nights on love forgotten
I've traded happiness for sad

I've felt the hurt of a broken heart inside me
I've felt the joy of love unchained
I've seen the rain wash away a mountain
Like tears have washed away my pain

I've watched some loved ones dear to my heart dying
I've heard a newborn baby's cry
I've walked a path of glory and of darkness
I've felt the guilt of a senseless life

Drank to forget and I've drank to remember
And I've drank for love and I've drank for hate
I've danced alone with a full moon up above me
Lighting the way to heaven's gate

I've felt the love of Jesus shining on me
I've felt the devil's wicked ways
Prayed for forgiveness, prayed for redemption
Prayed just to make it through the day

Wow . The newspaper said the birds died way back in .2010.... My BIL who lives is that area said he remembers a lot of birds dying several years ago and he has his thoughts about the situation . If your niece spent her Christmas break there in 2010 instead of going home she may have remembered it. But otherwise...I just don't know...

There is a new Quad graphics plant over in your beautiful state right? Well it is strange that cases of birds dying seem to follow that company. I'm not saying anything but this story seems to follow a very common pattern. Watch how it turns out, people will start to say west nile virus and such whats going on? Look it up on the net and then do a search for industry in the area. Good luck

Whew! What a day!! Lawnmower is down so mowing is on hold... That grass will just have to wait! While "working"on the mower--which involved a chain, and a tractor and bucket, I smelled the faint wafting scent of skunk. Not the spray but the general odor. I looked up just in time to see the dog proudly run off with a new baby skunk in her mouth. She spent another hour of so laying within sight of the skunk nest --just waiting. I did take a good look at baby skunk, took its pic, in fact. Its eyes werent even open yet. But I'm not checking out that nest!!
And I sure dont want another bunch of skunks around the place!!! Free skunks!!! Come and get one!

Lol. All of you idiots have been discussing this same topic for like 3 years. Get off of it and get a life. Three years wasted you morons.
Wasted?
Hardly! We've shared stories and memories , laughed at jokes and jokes, cried at the passing of a fellow poster, we shared our faith, many great songs, discussed life and played on the monkey bars.
Wasted? I think not. We've been living and sharing.
