Well, cool and cloudy this morning. Going to take my momma shopping. The birds will have to wait today.

Great post, Betty. Couldn't have said it better myself.
Good morning, my feathered friends. It is going to get warm through the weekend, then cold again. Green grass and trees are budding in my yard. Birds are everywhere. I don't think that I've seen so many in the past 15 years,since I've been living here.
Oh, my. Just looked out of my window and the mourning doves are trying to perform kinky sex- IN A TREE. Good grief, they could at least book a room. LOL. It's too early in the day for bird pornography.
I was getting into my car last spring and noticed two birds "in the act." The one was rather violent, pecking incessantly at the other. I don't know if it was the male or female. The disturbance - rustling of the branches- caught my attention. It was a very unsettling sight. I had never seen that odd behavior between birds. Is that normal behavior of birds ?Thanks.

Yes, that is pretty normal. The male does a macho dance to attract the female. When on the ground, they will fan their tail feathers, and strut around the female. If she finds him worthy, she will accept his advances and they will mate. The mourning doves will mate for life (they are much more loyal than humans). If one of the pair dies, the other will not look for a replacement. The 'violent' pecking looks worse than it really is. He is displaying all the good stuff that he can pass on to offspring. In nature, the strongest prevail, and he has to show her that he is strong and dominant. After all, this is the way they will survive as a species.

lol i grew up in a religion that was very strict about the whole, sunday is rest day and do not by and sell on sunday :)
i can remember many a time that we would be out of a staple like milk or a loaf of bread and we would stop off at Kroger on the way home from church (of course we couldn't go to the Kroger right down the road from the church... we would drive all the way across town to the other one) my mom would be looking over her shoulder the whole time ready to dive behind a display at any minute in case she saw someone from church...lol. us kids were like, "but mom if we see them at the store too?" it made no difference to her...she was not about to get caught if she could help it.
now years later she has kind of adopted my mentality of "just let them talk cause they going to anyway" and stops off every Sunday at the McDonald's right across the street from the church for an ice cream cone and an apple pie. we kids like to chide her every once in a while about it. "awe..... uh mom.......your not supposed to buy and sell on Sundays!" she just laughs and says the bible also says to mind your own business too...lol
I grew up much the same way and came to learn that many "rules" are just man made. If one is watching people to keep from getting caught, then are they really serving GOD or just people?

I am glad you got some time with Momma and visiting. It seems you are really busy and have little time for pleasures. I had a great day and finished the friend's shed and I am about finished too. LOL

Tomorrow, I will go to church at the regular time. The community is having an Easter Sunrise service that I won't attend since it will be well after sunrise and the sun will be high in the sky and the morning fog will even be lifted. But I guess it will be early for the late sleepers, but it sure won't be sunrise. LOL

Yes, I don't do anything much just for myself, or to have fun.
I cherish every minute with my parents. Mom is near 80, and dad is near 85, and I know we can't live forever.:( I don't know what I'll do when I lose them. I have many friend, but my mom is my BEST friend.:)

My mom was my best friend but I realized it too late. They would both be 81 this year. Moms gone 20, dad 11 years. Funny thing sometimes it'll flash through my head "oh, I gotta tell mom this". Guess I'm in a melancholy mood this evening!

Cheer up. Life passes within a blink of an eye. I believe all will be reunited on the other side of the thin veil that separates our earthly existence from everlasting life beyond. A baby, just prior to birth must feel that it surely is going to die, but the birth just transitions that baby to a new stage in its existence. Love and prayers to all. Lala

Happy Easter, my fine feathered friends. Hope that everyone had a nice day. AW, you will keep yourself young with all that exercise that you get. I could use you on my farm. As soon as the weather warms up a bit and the land dries out, we have to fix fences, start cleaning up the outbuildings,and mowing the grass will soon follow. Hubby and I are starting to exercise. I'm up to walking on my gravel road which leads to the back fields and the river. It's a half mile up and a half mile back. That's good for starters. I can gradually work up to two miles if I circle around both back fields before turning toward home. I have made good progress on getting better. Last year at this time, I was having surgery, the first of three procedures that almost had me at the undertakers. When I finally got home, I could only walk with the aid of a walker, and hubby had to help me do that. Now I'm walking for a mile at a brisk pace, and not landing on my arse every two feet. When I start feeling sorry for myself, I think back about how I was then, and how far I have come. Eventually, I may be able to ride a horse. That's my next goal. I thank Our Creator every day for giving me the courage to carry on.

Agree. I had a heart attack and a quad bypass 4 years ago, then a month later (4 years ago this past Monday) I had a carotid artery surgery and could not even speak from March to October. The surgeon had to move the nerve endings that controlled my vocal chords and the CREATOR saw fit for me to carry on and gave me 6 months of meditation to think without speaking before giving me back my voice. The Bible tells us "Be still and know that I am GOD" but it also tells us to make a joyful noise unto the Lord. So GOD knows that we need to do both.

I lost both my parents 16 years ago and my wife 8 years ago and my career 3 years ago. That is when I came back after being gone for 50 years to the Homestead of my childhood and everything I touch and feel around here has some fond memory. Even the work is nostalgic, but no longer melancholy.

While working on the old smokehouse, I found a picture I had drawn on the wall out there in the 1950s. It was a child's rendering of a house with a fence and chickens on the ground and birds in the air and beneath it I had written my name and the caption "Home Sweet Home". I remodeled all around the wall but left that one piece to remind me that I am home. The CREATOR has trully blessed me. Often times we hear "GOD BLESS YOU". I contend that HE already has and now it is up to us to pass it on.

Dog is through stretching and rolling on the carpet and running outside to chase away the boogers and check out his tree. Now he wants us to go get some more rest. Good night/morning to all.

100 species of animals are pushed to the edge of extinction everyday. Look up how many species have become extinct since humans took over as the top of the food chain.
More so, look up how many times birds have just fell from the sky. Alfred Hitchcock's famous novel was based on the very phenomenon, look up swarms of fish dying or the bees disappearing.
Its us, we are destroying them. Maybe not on purpose but we are. We kill insects that eat our food, we blow up the earth to make way for our homes, our roads. We demolish entire forests to have paper and plastic and things that make our life easy.
Forget about our grandchildren, our future generations.
We're killing them. And we're killing us.
so true

happy Easter , AW you are so right... We are already blessed. I guess at times we just forget how much , and who to thank for it .. I have been to the bottom , and seen the top , but I am happy just being alive. Many blessings to each and everyone of you today. Whereever you may be, may your heart be warmed today ...

Myth #1: Jesus came into the world by "virgin birth" and has no biological father.

Myth #2: Jesus is God.

Myth #3: Jesus' crucifixion was preordained.

Myth #4: Jesus came to establish Christianity.

Myth #5: Jesus was not supposed to marry and start a family.

Myth #6: No one was prepared to be Jesus' wife.

Myth #7: Mary fully supported Jesus in his mission.

Myth #8: Its too late for Jesus to be married now.

Myth #9: Jesus will come on the clouds to meet his followers in the sky at the rapture.

Myth #10: Jesus will fulfill the Second Coming himself.

This is a good read but I'm sure in KY nobody can understand that Jesus was a good idea but not real.

@Fudge... whether your lists of myths are right or wrong is totally irrelevant. I prefer to live my life of one that includes "Faith, Hope, and Charity" only to find out that you were right all along instead of going through life believing your myths and finding out later that you are wrong.

In either case, I win and you lose.
