A memorable Memorial Day

Well, we had a rather active day today. A roaring house fire, a duples, that caught the house next door on fire, that jumped several houses, a mobile home, and hit a shed, then jumped another house and garage and a street and caught another shed on fire. All within a block.

Four families lost their home, one has a home that is damaged. One has a shed that is gone that almost melted the one side of his mobile home, and then the shed is owned by a lady that lives several street over.

Rumors have it that 5 or 6 kiddos under 5 lived in the duplex, two separate families, in the larger side. An elderly gentleman that had lived in the other side of the duplex has lived there for decades. I'm not sure about the last house to burn.

Three of the places have been bulldozed. And is still smouldering.

We had 14 fire departments here, 27 units and 87 firefighters, police, EMTS here. It started at 3 pm and they drove away about 9:30 pm.

Mic and I were over at a neighbors house wetting her fence, house and roof,  and were amazed that the heat was sooo very strong 3 houses away. It was like being in an oven. And the firefighters were in the midst of all this. 

I salute all these guys and gals.

Red Cross is taking donations for these folks and if you contact me with donation wants I will give you the local information.

Please lift all these people, homeless and firefighters and crew up in your prayers tonite.

I still smell fire.

5 months old Saturday

This little kid will be 5 months old Saturday.

I saw him (or her, I can't tell from the road) on December 28, 2010 early in the morning trying to stand. It was rather difficult so I assumed he was pretty new.

Mar and I stopped to take a picture of him and he came up to the fence. It was soo cute! When we started to drive off  he walked with us.

I want to stop and ask if we can bring carrots and apples for the three of them to eat. Mom and Pop are there too.

We would talk and the little guy would shake his head or nod. It was too funny! It was like he knew exactly what we were saying!

Have a great Memorial Day! Be safe!

yellow flower painting

This photo is rather dark and the pic really isn't. This was fun. Used DAP for 'draw' in the petals and add the 'seeds' in the middle. did another one with dap and i'm not liking it today. So I'm sure you will get to see it 'redone'!!  Then again you may not get to see it at all! It may be trash!!

Have a great day!

Rabbits and maters

My friend, B, lives in a really nice section of town.

She plants a garden and an influx of rabbits appear.


Told her she needed to put a sign out telling them to keep away.

She suggest maybe a bunny with a line thru it.

I say YEAH!

She comes back with then her bunny would bring all the other bunnies in protest.

I say bunny pot pie!

She didnt think I was funny.......

Said animal rights people would be all over her....

So I gave up.

I think bunny are really cute.

We used to have some.

Then we had babies in the Boys cage.

And realized that one was a girl....

So that was the end of bunnies at my house.

Mom gave them all away.

Well I got told today that since I got my new hot rod I'm full of Pi88 and vinegar.

All because I don't believe the news.

All because I think the whole thing is orchastrated to make certain people look good.

All because I think he was gone a long time ago thus there is no fish food this week.

All because I believe this is an elaborate hoax.

So I guess I'm full of it........but I must say it has been along time since anyone told me it was p&v! Normally it is lots of  Poo........

But what I can I say.........I'm soo full my eyes are brown and I float when it rains........

Kackle will ya? It's all good!!
