When I am gone, I don't care what they do with my shell. My soul won't be in it anyways. In the old days, people were just laid out at home until family and friends could arrive to celebrate their life and it was more of a "pot luck" reunion than a funeral.

Since there was no air conditioning and quite often no screens, some took turns to be "sitting up with the dead" and stay "wake" just to keep the flies off. Any service was graveside with the community elder just taking off his hat and saying a few words. Generally, no sermons or preachers.

In Deep South Louisiana tradition still dictates sitting up with the dead. I was amazed the first funeral I went to where they had the funeral home opened all night and there was more food than a family reunion.

Louisiana did many things the old way. It was not unusual for the owner of a country store to keep hogs, chickens, goats etc. out back and process and sell the meat right out of the store. USDA had little to no control over these independant peoples. They also served Boudin along the roadways and had drive-thru daquiri huts. I guess they still do that, I am speaking from experiences of about 30 years ago.
hmmm

The birds have been chirping all morning.Lovely day.

All my featherheads are in the coop with their gizzards full, and the head count is complete!! I have such a small flock that it isn't hard to count them though, hehe. I can tell who's in there most times by just listening to them 'coo' and chatter to each other before they fall asleep.

Have you ever noticed that, AW? They chatter to each other and seem to talk? They are such funny critters. It reaally IS hard for me to eat meat lately.

Oddly though I've made some BBQ boneless, skinless, chicken breasts for dinner as a matter of fact. With some white hominy and honey glazed "yellow" carrots!! YUM!! As long as I can eat it and not relate it to my own featherheads, it'll be a great dinner.

Any body wanna come over for dinner? I've made enough for at least three more people, so you better get over here before I vacuum seal it and put it up for hard times in the freezer...
(Or should I say "lazy times")? LOL!!

Good evening birdthreaders. Aren't we lucky in Kentucky, hope all of you had a nice as day as we did in my corner of Kentucky. So happy to see UK win big at Rupp Arena last night. Love those Wildcats.:)

Hope all of you are having a good evening.

Nope, while that 8.0 was happening our western coast was lit up on the map. It even stirred the Madrid area. Missouri had a small one. I seen this and thought you might want to scroll down it and see our big one in Alaska.

Too many hens to tell who is talking, but I can tell the roosters. I like to watch the roosters find things and then call the hens to come eat. I guess they are doing the opposite of you. LOL Too late for me, I already pigged out on peanut butter LOL

I could never eat a chicken that I knew. Yes, they chortle to each other and have lots of conversations. Some chickens, if handled enough when young, will sit in your lap and enjoy someone stroking her feathers. When my kids were little we had a very small flock that behaved more like dogs then chickens, from all the attention that they got.

Ancient Wolf, I thought you might enjoy reading about a family really roughing it. Wow, to been the first to see them after so long. Amazing

The people that time forgot: Incredible story of Russian family cut off from all human contact for 40 years who didn't know about WWII and had to eat leather shoes to survive

The Lykovs were Old Believers - members of a persecuted Russian sect

They left for wilderness after Karp saw brother killed by communists in 1936

Lived off land, ate leather shoes in harsh winter, unaware of WWII

Found in 1979 by Russian helicopter searching for spot to land geologists

The Lykovs were stupefied by modern goods like TV and cellophane

Tragically in 1981, three of Lykov children died, possibly of modern diseases

The pictures are interesting too. Can you imagine? Wow, I am so thankful to have lived a pretty good pampered life.

Where is everybody these days. The thread has been slow in the last 24 hours. Usually I have to read quite a bit in order to catch up, but not tonight. Maybe AW has a dinner date, but where is Hempburn?
I haven't seen him post since Una died. Oh,no, you don't suppose....Naw,can't be.

This story cracked me up. lol

Agence France-Presse reports A replica of Michelangelo's Renaissance sculpture David that was erected suddenly last summer is unnerving residents of a Japanese town, with some calling for the naked masterpiece to be given underwear.
The 16 foot tall marble statue was donated by a businessman who hails from the area around Okuizumo.

"It is the first time we have had anything like this in our town. Perhaps people were perplexed," town official Yoji Morinaga said.

You are so right lala, my uncle's farm who we always had the time of our lives at,(since we were an Army family living on military bases all over the world) had a barn just for chickens and had quite a few, they all had names. Like I told my son's father, an avid hunter, as long as I don't have to meet it, clean it, I can cook it and eat it. hahaha

That story is similar to Hiroo Onado who did not surrender in 1945, but finally gave up in 1974.

YES!! I noticed on the map last night that there were others in action at the same time too, but I didn't mention it. There seemed to be a really strange "pattern" to them that I noticed, so I compared the "world map" of actual fault lines to the markers that were flashing. It was astonishing. This is getting to be some pretty scary stuff now.

This asteroid,(DA14/"Nibiru ") that's coming so terribly close to earth next week has some massive pull involved with it that's affecting the Earths core and our poles. The Earth really IS groaning and stretching. I just hope she can take it..

I am more concerned about this than I was Y2K OR the Mayan prophecies...

Y2K was a man made problem simply involving a man made fix. This asteroid however, is coming from the heavens.. And we must keep in mind all of these strange booms that everyone has been hearing all over the world now for so long with NO credible explanations being given..

If this asteroid HAS somehow been causing the Earth to make these booming noises and it's not even here yet, then after it passes there will be effects taking place until it's well out of our orbit too. These strange noises, and other related catastrophes could still go on for a long time to come after it's passed..

I have been right here waiting on the chickens to come home to roost. Some absences do make one wonder?

Nah, not one of his socks. It has slowed down without him and his characters. I know I am still blued out about him being gone when months ago I wouldn't have cared less, as long as he was gone from here. He did keep it hoping. haha

I was wondering the same thing. Ole farter would have been begging for those daily reports. lol I remember him being here before we got the news about una talking about his Super Bowl plans and rooting for SF. Maybe he went to New Orleans to watch it and do Mardi Gras haha Wherever, he is I hope he safe and well.

Hope you are feeling better and get your email figured out. Are you still receiving?
