Soundings. Intent. Being bad.
Bored with constantly correcting people, is Spell Check auditioning for a comedy show?
With the “Close enough” and the”Well, they sound exactly the same and you know what I mean, so what’s the big deal?”, there’s enough hilarious lions to roar about.
Spotted, like a slow leopard, in a recent discussion jungle concerning the China Sea islands controversy: an observation concerning China’s missile capacity compared to other countries:
- “They haven’t reached parody”.
- Of course China might be building wit and satire which currently isn’t allowed on their internet, or it could be building military parity which is more easily recognized, even if less funny.
- Or they could all be encouraging trade growth with the pairing of teas.
No one likes a snarky Smarty Pants. Or a misplaced thought.
Another comment adamantly insists that Ash Wednesday and the observation of Lent is not Christian at all. It’s Catholic.
- Please don’t tell the Catholic congregation members….
- Or the local Methodist and even Lutheran ones that also follow those traditions.
- Some things not worth splitting hares over (unless it’s Easter and they are chocolate).
Talking about splitting, Spring is Gotta Get Away Time.
Why walk when you can fly – and get all heads to turn as you go by?
This writer is as logical and as convincing as Ralphie was in his persuasive essay about why he need a Red Ryder Carbine Action 200 Shot Range Model Air Rifle in “The Christmas Story”
And it’s funny:
“If ever a motorcycle was idiot proof, it’s this one. ….Our advice: keep it pointed away from trees. If you can manage that, you should be ok.”
See. Solid. Sensible. Feel free to try it.
Ralphie got his…
Flying along, you’ll love the sound of this: the little eaglet whose dutiful eagle dad was shot last weekend inside the Houston city limits by a 17-year-old (and his 2 friends) is safe at Last Chance Forever, the Birds of Prey Conservancy near San Antonio.
Hopefully a resident foster mom eagle (one injured so badly she cannot be returned to the wild) will adopt this little one along with her own. With her help, the eaglet will learn everything he needs to know to live in the wild.
Fall back plan is to raise the little chick with little human contact using an eagle puppet to feed and encourage him.(Read more expert’s interview in the link below.)
- Video and story – with the man who saw and called 911. This eagle, well-known and loved by the neighborhood, is one of a pair who have nested and raised families there for at least 5 years. It takes both parents to hunt and feed a young eagle until it can live on its’ own which is why the decision was made to collect the young bird. His mom was grieving her mate and exhausted.
- Listen to the expert talk about how the orphaned will be cared for at the sanctuary. You’ll learn why the eaglet was taken from the nest and a lot about American bald eagles. (Facebook page here.)
Do I have to spell it out for you?
Hope that eagle feather pluckin’ joker shows up for his court date in March and gets his.
There’s bad boys and then there’s bad, boys. Ask any of the wild ones.
