I know this post was nearly two years ago, and you might not even be on here anymore, but just in case I wanted to say thank you.

This explains a lot of dissonance that I feel in interactions with certain family members and I've returned to it several times for support.

It's with sad heart that I post that Naked Paul has passed. Anyone that's gotten the letterbox at Quartzsite "Bare Essentials" will remember Paul.
He was the kindest, funniest and most talented honky tonk singer/player around as well as bookstore owner.

There has been a bit of chatter about people carving Harriet Tubman stamps to go on the $20 bill to protest the recent delay to her going on the $20. A few boxers have already started working on versions of a stamp. If anyone is interested in carving their own, feel free to message me your email and I can send you my edit.

You know, Alexander Hamilton was going to be replaced on the $10 bill until someone made him famous again.

Most definitions of a totem pole point to Native Americans of the northwest regions, and carvings are related to the family or clan it represents.

So, IMHO, no, her carving of Dracula would not qualify, since Dracula is of European origin.

When it suits her.

But, according to her it's a tiki face. I'd have to go in her room to see for sure but she's being a pain right now.

Okay, now "Tiki" relates to Polynesian cultures, which is totally different than Pacific Northwest.

Tonight, on my way home in the dark, a red fox ran across the road in front of me. I have never seen one around home before, and this one was less than two miles from my home.

I am celebrating one of the little joys in life.

A couple of weeks ago, we had a fox run across the road in front of us -- five times in a row! Seemed every evening as we came home, he'd dash out of the bushes and cross the road in front of us. Then we'd roll down the window and talk to him while he sat 10 yards away and looked at us. Five times in a row. We missed him when he didn't show up on the sixth time.

Those are the best kind. I live in town in Visalia, CA but across the street is a ponding basin where, inexplicably, a fox lives. I’ve seen him (her?) on our property a couple of times.

But here’s my favorite red fox story...
I used to live in Taos NM. One day I was hiking in the nearby mountains. I was hiking off trail and I had just spent a couple of hours hiking to the top of a ridge. I found a nice log to set on for lunch and got everything out of my pack and started eating. I had been there for about 10 minutes enjoying the views before I noticed a red fox curled up, watching me about 15 feet away. He only moved away after he noticed me noticing him.

For the first time in years, I did a Google search that had just one hit. It's not easy, though it admit it wasn't my goal.

The search was for "coorukuku". Without doing the search, anyone wanna guess why I was searching that?
