Wow, what a coincidence. I was at Lowes just two weeks ago. Also looking for anchors, only to anchor bog bridging so it wouldn't float away. This morning I met our land trust treasurer at the post office so he could pay the bill for mailing a land trust newsletter. I dug the Lowes sales slip out of my billfold and can you believe it, he refunded the $189 I had paid Lowes for the anchors. This sure is an exciting nothing thread. What a great idea you had Sherrill!

My advice is to stay busy and to be curious about what's happening in the world.

There are a lot of things us "older" folks can still do. I puff these days while going up 2 or 3 flights of stairs. I don't like to hike with other people because I sense I'm slowing them down. I get frustrated when I can't remember how to spell a word, or remember a name. But I can still cut brush that intrudes into trails. Offer advice. Keep map boxes full. Figure out how to keep bog bridging in place over a stream that floods every spring. Write and publish newsletters, and get them in the mail on time at minimal bulk mailing rates.

Most importantly argue politics or whatever else you are passionate about. Don't worry about convincing someone else. Worry about challenging your mind to hear and understand different points of view.

Life can be more than just being along for the ride, at least that's true so far in my experience.

Yeah, guess that was the right name. Confused me at first cause it kinda looked like a Bluebird, only bigger and I'd never seen a Bluebird eating seeds. Got out the guide and decided it was either an Indigo Bunting or a Blue Grosbeak.

So, one of those. Whatever he was he wasn't giving up his perch at the feeder for anyone.

We have Painted Buntings but they are getting more rare. Probbley about the most attractive bird. Hard to see as they stay in the brush but sometimes they come to the water we have out, The male is the most colorful bird I can think of and the female is green. Wood duck is probably the next as far as color.

generoll
2011-08-16, 09:14
it was bigger, so maybe it was the Blue Grosbeak. I don't know birds and was just relying on the pictures in my Audubon book. it was blue all over except for the wings which were drab in color with white flashes. It had a fairly "blunt" sort of beak rather then a pointed beak, if that makes sense.

On a scout trip to Greenwich, CT we discovered these funny looking green birds in the trees near the shore. There weren't so funny looking as much as funny as what the heck they were doing there. Turns out a species of Monk Parakets escaped from a shipment on I-95 back in the 1960s and have been thriving along the CT coastline ever since, much to the dismay of the local electric co. who claims they cause fires and power outages. There is a lot of controversy over what to do with them. The power company wants to treat them like a non-native species of weed and annihilate them, of course. The bleeding hearts are trying to protect them, of course.

That looks like the bird I saw. I can't tell the size from the picture, but this was approximately the size of a Bluejay and was notable for the way the body was all blue, but the wings were drab like the bird in the picture. As I mentioned, he wasn't giving up his place at the feeder for anyone and just kept pecking away at the sunflower seeds.

A small flock of Canada jays showed up at lunch time. I told the lawyer to hold out his hand. A jay jumped on it quickly. "I feel like I'm Jesus," he exclaimed.

You forgot the punchline.

"And then the Canada Jay pecked a hole in his hand."

Flew to Amicalola Falls this summer to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary at the lodge there.

Bought a new hiking stick, and thought about mailing it home, but decided to take it back on the plane instead.

They almost took it away from me, saying that it could be deemed a weapon. Even had me talk with the supervisor about it.

She said that she could refuse my entry because it might be a weapon.

I responded "Do I look like Jackie Chan to you?"

She laughed and let me on the plane.

Don't you hate posts about people and their pets?

Friday we went to the county animal shelter looking for a dog. Our son and his mixed cocker spaniel / miniature collie mutt will be moving out soon and we wanted a companion animal to replace the pup. When our son and his wife move, we're really going to miss their dog.

A little terrier grabbed our hearts. She wasn't the one we went to look at but she was the one we came home with. She looks like a smooth coat fox terrier / beagle mix, sorta. Definitely terrier. Housebroken. Loves people. Got on well with the other dog. Until today.

New dog was chewing on one of old dog's toys and old dog tried to reclaim the toy and establish who was on whose territory. Terrier grabbed old dog by the ear and hung on like a pit bull. It took two people, a lot of howling, yelling and hammering on the terrier's head to separate terrier from ear. Examination of ear revealed she didn't even break the skin. But she showed old dog how little dogs survive in the pound.

Now old dog gives new dog a bit more space.

GOD:
Frank, you know all about gardens and nature. What in the world is going on
down there on the planet? What happened to the dandelions, violets,
milkweeds and stuff I started eons ago? I had a perfect no-maintenance
garden plan. Those plants grow in any type of soil, withstand drought and
multiply with abandon. The nectar from the long-lasting blossoms attracts
butterflies, honey bees and flocks of songbirds. I expected to see a vast
garden of colors by now. But, all I see are these green rectangles..

ST. FRANCIS:
It's the tribes that settled there, Lord. The Suburbanites. They started
calling your flowers 'weeds' and went to great lengths to kill them and
replace them with grass.

GOD:
Grass? But, it's so boring. It's not colorful. It doesn't attract
butterflies, birds and bees; only grubs and sod worms. It's sensitive to
temperatures. Do these Suburbanites really want all that grass growing
there?

ST. FRANCIS:
Apparently so, Lord. They go to great pains to grow it and keep it green.
They begin each spring by fertilizing grass and poisoning any other plant
that crops up in the lawn.

GOD:
The spring rains and warm weather probably make grass grow really fast. That must make the Suburbanites happy.

ST. FRANCIS:
Apparently not, Lord. As soon as it grows a little, they cut it-sometimes
twice a week.

GOD:
They cut it? Do they then bale it like hay?

ST. FRANCIS:
Not exactly, Lord. Most of them rake it up and put it in bags.

GOD:
They bag it? Why? Is it a cash crop? Do they sell it?

ST. FRANCIS:
No, Sir, just the opposite. They pay to throw it away.

GOD:
Now, let me get this straight. They fertilize grass so it will grow.. And,
when it does grow, they cut it off and pay to throw it away?

ST. FRANCIS:
Yes, Sir.

GOD:
These Suburbanites must be relieved in the summer when we cut back on the rain and turn up the heat. That surely slows the growth and saves them a lot of work.

ST. FRANCIS:
You aren't going to believe this, Lord. When the grass stops growing so
fast, they drag out hoses and pay more money to water it, so they can
continue to mow it and pay to get rid of it.

GOD:
What nonsense. At least they kept some of the trees. That was a sheer stroke of genius, if I do say so myself. The trees grow leaves in the spring to
provide beauty and shade in the summer. In the autumn, they fall to the
ground and form a natural blanket to keep moisture in the soil and protect
the trees and bushes. It's a natural cycle of life.

ST. FRANCIS:
You better sit down, Lord. The Suburbanites have drawn a new circle.. As
soon as the leaves fall, they rake them into great piles and pay to have
them hauled away.

GOD:
No!? What do they do to protect the shrub and tree roots in the winter to
keep the soil moist and loose?

ST. FRANCIS:
After throwing away the leaves, they go out and buy something which they call mulch. They haul it home and spread it around in place of the leaves.

GOD:
And where do they get this mulch?

ST. FRANCIS:
They cut down trees and grind them up to make the mulch.

GOD:
Enough! I don't want to think about this anymore. St. Catherine, you're in
charge of the arts. What movie have you scheduled for us tonight?

ST. CATHERINE:
'Dumb and Dumber', Lord. It's a story about...

GOD:
Never mind, I think I just heard the whole story from St. Francis.*

I suspect your hundred bucks helped buy the summit ridge of Abraham, one of a handful of 4,000 foot summits in the state. I know 4,000 feet doesn't sound like much to folks down south, but ours tower well above the tree line. MATLT was not involved in the anti windpower movement as an organization. That was handled by MATC

The tiny clusters of 4,000 footers surrounding Abraham, Sugarloaf and Bigelow have the only significant barren summits on the AT outside of the Presidentials, and Katahdin.

The slopes of Abraham had already been purchased by ATC and the state. We put together the package to buy the summit ridge which had been withheld from the original sale while the owner got a final appraisal.

We thought the purchase would be a piece of cake. It wasn't. The first $200,000 came in easy, so we took out a bank loan for the final 100 grand. We sweated that loan for months. New donations shrunk to almost nothing. Then just as the bank and we began to worry. An old guy from the midwest sent in two checks totalling $100,000 for a memorial to his wife with whom he had climbed the mountain 40 years earlier.

Many thanks Woodsy for your contribution. One thing I've learned about hikers is that they talk about loving the trail, but only a tiny few back up their love with cash when it's needed.

Hey Sarge, do you and your missus really read every word of every post here? I ask because if you do, I don't know where you find time to eat, sleep, or carry out any other tasks necesary for daily life.

I skim pretty much all of the posts, but do not read every word.

The most obtuse woman can work her ways with any healthy man...no matter how smart he thinks he is. I think it has something to do with hormones.:angel:


Fishing and fucking have a common denominator....... their both ruled by the tides and the dark satellite....and females are smarter starting at an early age. Most men are dumb as dogshit about women....... including myself.
It equals out about the time of dementia.
Flowers and candy help till then.

From what I've seen they make out better in divorce than they do in staying married. The only reason Daisy stays with me is because she feels sorry for me since I can't hear the toast pop up or that the signal light is still flashing after I've gone around a corner.:angel:

well you have got to admit the hammock stand I took to NH was more than a bit heavy - right? The problem with this one is that the footprint is so fucking large and that it probably needs to have flat ground

Don't you hate posts about people and their pets?Yes, almost as much as those who reply to themselves.

So we're going out of town and rescue terrier is spending the weekend with friends who have lots of other rescue animals - dogs, cats, horses - I'm always halfway expecting them to be featured on one of those 'animal hoarder' shows. Except they take really good care of all their pets.

So the pup shows up there for a couple overnighters and right away meets the Big Old Alpha Cat - the one who has been raised around various hounds and big dogs and has to teach every one of them who is The Boss.

And the people were elsewhere in the house when they hear Alpha Cat howling and they figured our little terrier was being taught a lesson so they came running to find...

Little terrier had Alpha Cat by the throat and was shaking the shit out of cat. Literally. Crap was flying all over the room.

A blast from a CO2 fire extinguisher was needed to separate death grip dog from Alpha Cat. A-Cat took off through the smoke screen and wasn't found for 2 hours. Little dog got chunked out into the backyard then had to be kept in a crate indoors until we came to reclaim our canine delinquent.

OK, so that means we can't have any pet cats. Gee golly damn.

We're learning the difference between a pit bull terrier and a fox / rat terrier is ... about 20 to 30 pounds.

I am crap at fire starting. Maybe I could train one of these guys to sit on my shoulder for when I'm hiking. We could discuss politics and sport on the trail and at night he could get the fire started while I set up camp.
