And didn't the Native Americans thank Mother Earth and say a prayer of gratitude to the animal they killed for the meat and hide (?)? Something I've read in many a book written by a Native American.
I read that many years ago Quincy, and it stayed with me.
The Native Ame4rican only ever killed out of sheer necessity
never for the fun of it.

That is why I am so anti fox hunting which is banned here although
you would never know it, they carry on regardless.
Now if farmers would put an Alpaca in his field, there would
never be a problem with foxes.
If owners of chickens made sure they were housed at night...never
a problem.
I had chickens actually and made sure they were in the barn before
dusk.

You know El,
YOU are perfectly right to choose what's best,
as, there are umpteen other days for the cinema,
besides being out there miserable in the pouring rain.

Had a great day yesterday my 'Christmas present" from my 2 sons was
delivered, and we spent ages assembling it, well!! I was
just the tea and sandwich maker to be honest!! lol

my son who lives here & grandson did it all..
It's a beautiful recliner massage chair, perfect,
follows the contours of the body..
I LOVE it,
here's to lazy days in 2013! lol

and the wonderful thing is

I DON'T CARE, about being lazy, anymore I'm retired!
that's one of the great advantages of getting older
lol..

Priorities change!

In reply to a few other posts of
yesterday..
RM Quinn,
Yes that was a truly great video link..
the guy who went to so much trouble to befriend
the animals.

Denny,

In rply,
NO I'm not a vegan, I eat eggs and have milk..
but I'm always very careful to obtain FREE RANGE eggs..
it's ok by me, as an animal hasn't to be killed
for these products.
I'm careful to read the package and look
out for the 'suitable for vegetarian' ones.

We do the best we can, if any one of us were to
take these things to extremes, we'd scarcely venture
out at all, fearing, when we walk the common pavements, we might crush any tiny insects that were
underfoot.

We do the best we can.

AND..

I hope Denny, this hasn't opened any rift between
ANY of us here;
9YOU've always been a pleasant and decent]

we, each of us, are different in our core beliefs AND life
experiences

One time we were driving and a van with the muppets drove by next to us. It was so cool to see them in the windows waving as they drove by. I bet they love doing that for kids in other cars

I just sold a rifle built in 1905 and it was like it just came out of the factory. I bought it 25 years ago in the grease. It never had been fired. When I sold it it was still in new condition

Quinn I was hacked so don't open any attachments that you think came from me. My wife is still cataloging her wedgwood. Someday she will have it sorted and sell the duplicates. I wish you could see her collection. It fills 6 4x7 cases. There was also a lot of Adams with the Wedgwood. Do you collect?

We do have a great group here. I love to exchange thoughts and try to never take things personal. I remember a few years ago I made a remark to Tony that I wish I could take back :) My bad

The line in my last post should have been

"you have always been a pleasant decent poster
here"

Don't worry about what you said,
it just shows the human side of you..
as, I'm sure Tony will have understood afterwards...

We've all been 'there' one time or other.

Wishing you a pleasant week up ahead,D -
we have had the most clement weather
right thru' from Christmas,
but, from today's forecast ..

Have a few things to attend to this afternoon, so will take my leave for today.

A very thoughtful gift GRACE....enjoy.

DENNY...P not at his best today, so taken a rain-check. The weather is against it too as I am not
fond of the A55 at the best of times.

'Morning Tony...all very interesting, I missed the news article
although that is our paper of choice, so was interested to read it
here!
Where did I read recently that wolves have been spotted in England?
Or am I dreaming?
Growing up, I spent a lot of time near Lyme Hall, and we would see
the deer roaming freely...nice sight, but it never occurs to
children how they are 'managed'. I believe Denny has a point when he
says that they are of no more importance than a cow. I have enjoyed
Venison myself, and it is healthier than, say, pork.
I expect by eating meat we are as 'guilty' as those who provide it..
And me, the big animal lover!
Afternoon ER. There are captive groups of woles in the UK and if I recall there was some talk of re-introducing them into the wild, but don't think it's happend. Some more info here:

Sometimes, just sometimes, serendipity strikes. I had just concluded the trip to the States wasn't going to happen - for a variety of reasons. A girlfriend from many years ago, with whom I'm still in touch, emailed me on another matter. I took a while to reply as hoped to be able to tell her I'd link up with her and her husband if I visited. Replied to her mail, mentioning this fact.

Here's the whammy - she can get me standby tickets with a certain US carrier - she used to be a trolley dolly for TWA in a past life and she still gets this perk - for friends as well. So come March/April, it's all on again - they even have a time share that includes ski lodges. Have I died and gone to heaven?!
