TNfisher One of my favorite Rush songs..the lyrics were relevant back in 1981 and IMHO, are still relevant today, maybe even more so. Useless tidbit - I got to see them in concert back in 78 (I think it was) during their 'Farewell To Kings' tour


The night is black
Without a moon
The air is thick and still
The vigilantes gather on
The lonely torchlit hill
Features distorted in the flickering light
The faces are twisted and grotesque
Silent and stern in the sweltering night
The mob moves like demons possessed
Quiet in conscience, calm in their right
Confident their ways are best
The righteous rise
With burning eyes
Of hatred and ill-will
Madmen fed on fear and lies
To beat, and burn, and kill
They say there are strangers, who threaten us
In our immigrants and infidels
They say there is strangeness, too dangerous
In our theatres and bookstore shelves
That those who know what’s best for us –
Must rise and save us from ourselves
Quick to judge,
Quick to anger
Slow to understand
Ignorance and prejudice
And fear
Walk hand in hand

ECIN So you guys gonna visit Florida soon for a vacation

I have NO idea Di what will happen this winter --- lol

I have been trying to get Alan to hire me on down there - But he said he already has enough help sitting on there azz's ! True story Sort of hurt my feelings

As far as foot - its the ball of my foot Di - Top of foot is swollen along with the toe next to it - Doc asked me if I had accidently kicked something - I told him no - I didn't even kick anything on purpose -- he looked at me and then started to laugh his rear off .
11-21-2019 07:57 AM
LadyDi Morning Doc!
Sorry you are dealing with foot pain and I still have that dang Plantar Faciaitis myself! Sucks!
When my heels first hit the ground..... at first it hurts like hell but after 10 steps or so it loosens up and I can walk OK.
So all your work is done and you are now on tax duty and putting everything away for the season?
So you guys gonna visit Florida soon for a vacation?
11-21-2019 06:36 AM
ECIN What was the deal last night guys ? I tossed and turned ALL night long , Finally just got up at 5 - had stuff to do first thing and turned on DT and found everybody else up -- lol

How is Scotty doing ?

Had to go to Doc yesterday - someway I hurt my foot late summer and it has got unbearable to walk long distances on it - so are walking across hospital to get blood work done then to imaging for X-rays - then back out to my pickup - I was shot - lol Nice little ole lady othered to take me there in a wheelchair ! NO way was I having this nice lady - my senior by 20 years push me around or anybody else ! Yes - to much pride The gal at the lab was great - lol we had lots of laughs - I have been there before and never had the same one draw blood - I asked if she had every done this before - She replied that this was her first day ! They threw her the keys and said you have to learn sometime - lol She was a good one - didn't even know when she stuck me

When I told my DW that a DT member's Dobe made it to age 14, she said:

"OMG - Five More Years of THIS ?????"



Now my DW brought Mr. Spocko out on leash in garage (mistake) when owners came by and he acted like a knucklehead, doing his Dobe yodel: "Oooh aah, Oooh aah, Ooooooh aaaah" as if he'd never seen another young female before...

I explained to my DW that Spock was just saying to the young female husky: "Welcome to our house, young lady, I'm trapped here with old female bittys who yell at me all the time" My DW didn't think that was funny at all....


Spock and Eva will have a break next week from school visits due to holiday vacation period.
However, during 1st two weeks in Dec their schedule is loaded including:

(3) Regular weekly E. S. Read With Me Visits
(1) Career Day presentation at E. S. - Spock (5 x 4th grade classes- 2 hrs.)
(1) Senior Center visit & presentation- Eva (already made a prelim visit)
(3) College De-Stress visits- Both Spock & Eva (UTSA, UIW, St.MarysU)
(1) School District awards ceremony - Spock (for 1.5 yrs. volunteer work)


That look is so true - seen it many a times! Probably just after I stopped petting! The head flips back so fast

I'm trapped here with old female bittys

I bet Spock and Eva are happy to get out and see the world!

Soldier Son--Yes, he didn't have a choice--his problem was part of who he was, a necessary part, and the world he was born into rejected him for that. But he had a harder time accepting himself; I don't think he was as rebellious as Fitz. He bought into his world's disgust with him more.

Fitz was rejected by his society because of the Wit, which was, of course, an important part of who he was; similarly he felt that he had no choice but to use the wit. But I could understand that because I enjoyed his relationship with Nighteyes so much.



I guess I was just more in tune with the Wit than I was with SS's inborn "talent"? SS's struggle and self-disgust were a little too graphically emphasized for me, especially in the first book; now that I think of it, I had some of the same unaccepting attitude as his world did toward him.

Which I guess means that Hobb actually pretty effectively emphasized the magnitude of the guy's difficulties and how hard it was for him to come to terms with them by the negatives in my thinking she revealed to me (surprising for me to realize, since I struggle with the same difficulties on a much smaller scale.)

Thanks for the early morning up short you just put me through.

I need to reread the books too--I bet I'd like them better now that I see where the storyline was going and can be aware of my own biases too.

Edited to add:
I think there are 4 Rain Wild books?? But they're smaller; even with four, I don't think the series is as long as the other. To me, they were a definite add-on afterthought...or at least had that flavor.

AND, some of the books I read I have to go over several times to remember any of it (nonfiction-ish).

(Look at that--I'm caught the practice of a comma after "and" from SP. But sometimes it really does work.)


And hey!! Don't pick on my sleeping habits. To bed at about 4 AM last night and up at 7AM...I'm going short today. I was about that short yesterday too...I don't know what has gotten into me. Anyway, if I don't show up tomorrow until it's afternoon, I deserve the extra sleep. phbbbbtt......

Sorry to cause you "the early morning up short you just put me through. " 3 hours of sleep - definitely going short!

Once I get through the books I am trying to read- I will start back with Robin Hobbs. Books I am reading - Sovereign of the Seven Isles by David A. Wells....it is a 7 book series. I am on the 3rd book Mindbender....the series is only ok but have started them so will try and finish.

One comments from someone about the series:
"I have to say, this book is an enigma. There is so much not good about it, but somehow I kept turning the pages and finished it fairly quick. "

Seems the stars are either 1 or 2 or 4 or 5 with just a few in between

Basic principle the main character and others are living by and fighting the bad guys over.

The Old Law: "You have a right to your life because you are alive. You have a right to your liberty because you have free will. You have a right to your property because it is the product of your labor. You forfeit these rights when you take them from another.”


I also like to re-read books - one to pick up things I missed and two as you state Mel - a comfort thing.

I like the thinking anime - Just see the wheels turning or you pacing back and forth

Unrelated News- We rescued a stray young husky female puppy yesterday and reunited with owner in a few hours. (Lots of Husky owners in area- seem to always be loose on NextDoor postings) I used chip ID tag on collar to call her in as found and notify owners. Her name is Bella and was a perfect sweety, coming up for affection and taking treats and water. I tethered her on front mat, where I normally sit Eva. We introduced her to Lanah and she was a bit scared.

When I walked Eva in yard to see Bella from distance she was very interested and non aggressive. However she seemed to say in dog talk: "Don't bring that young beatch in this house, I'm the Diva here!!!

Now my DW brought Mr. Spocko out on leash in garage (mistake) when owners came by and he acted like a knucklehead, doing his Dobe yodel: "Oooh aah, Oooh aah, Ooooooh aaaah" as if he'd never seen another young female before...

I explained to my DW that Spock was just saying to the young female husky: "Welcome to our house, young lady, I'm trapped here with old female bittys who yell at me all the time" For some reason, my DW didn't think that was funny at all....

Eva & Spock Resting After Completing School Visits This Week





Spock and Eva will have a break next week from school visits due to holiday vacation period.
However, during 1st two weeks in Dec their schedule is loaded including:

(3) Regular weekly E. S. Read With Me Visits
(1) Career Day presentation at E. S. - Spock (5 x 4th grade classes- 2 hrs.)
(1) Senior Center visit & presentation- Eva (already made a prelim visit)

Pet Supply Store Ferret Rant- WTH? Was in checkout line at our local Pet Supplies Plus store getting (more) dog food with Spock. Then I (and Spock) noticed they had several ferrets in a cage close to checkout lines, where lots of dogs are brought through daily. Mr. Spock had never seen ferret(s) so of course barked as to say "WTH are those little furry things?" Went through same line with Eva next day and ferrets were sleeping and she ignored them, but did smell. I did mention to manager that placing any small animals near checkout lines was not a smart thing...

-------------------------------------------------------------------

More-Ferret Related I couldn't sleep and logged in at 0430- Mel was still online and just getting to sleep! Good thing she has ferrets.... (Always a good GIF subject...)


Ma! Time to Go Sleepy-Sleep...

alan j. Bug , Way to go, you do know how to enjoy a dobe.

He looked to be a real stud back in the day , congrats to a dobe milestone!

"I ain't as good as I once was
I got a few years on me now
But there was a time back in my prime
When I could really lay it down
And if you need some love tonight
Then I might have just enough
I ain't as good as I once was
But I'm as good once as I ever was"
