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
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 .

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?

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

They have this wonderous new thing now called "Digital Photography" which allows even Luddites to upload pics to an interweb forum...
When I told my DW that a DT member's Dobe made it to age 14, she said:
"OMG - Five More Years of THIS ?????"
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....

Bella Tethered, Laying on Eva's Matt
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)
(3) College De-Stress visits- Both Spock & Eva (UTSA, UIW, St.MarysU)
(1) School District awards ceremony - Spock (for 1.5 yrs. volunteer work)
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...

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"
