After THANKSGIVING

For Thanksgiving, I opted not to drive down to family in Wisconsin; Maggie
had to work & couldn't come up. My good friends invited me
their big family get-together at their daughter's home with her BIG
family. THANKS ... GUYS!






The deer season is almost over ... then ... I'll probably start putting
out a little corn for the deer. The bear have probably gone to
bed? We have a light snow cover, but, the deer can still find
lots of grass to graze. They've probably eaten all the apples by
now.

I wish that someone in the neighborhood would get some
logging done ... that's the perfect way to have fat deer come thru the
winter1! "Managed Woodlots" ... that's the way to responsibly
maintain your forested land.










See ... I REALLY am a BLOGGER!



As we watch the news of the landing, think of my aunt, uncle, & cousin in Florida ... they are close enough to the Space Center to watch from
their own back yard!

From the website, here's the latest bulletin;
I hope that they don't have to change the landing site to TEXAS!





Final Full Day in Space for STS-126, Landing Set for
Sunday


Sat, 29 Nov 2008 04:52:07 PM
CST




The STS-126 crew spent its final full day in space Saturday. The crew tested
space shuttle Endeavour's flight control surfaces and reaction control system
thrusters in preparation for a Sunday landing. The two landing opportunities at
Kennedy Space Center are for 12:19 p.m. and 1:54 p.m. EST. However, an
unfavorable weather forecast in Florida called for two more landing
opportunities at Edwards Air Force Base in California at 4:25 p.m. and 6
p.m

MY BACK IS MAD AT ME

Ouch 5:47 AM 11/23/2008

Driving It's been over a week since I drove back from my sister's in Wisconsin; my
back is really so bad. Even with lots of rest, I have to take more of my
prescription Ibuprofen than I'm supposed to.


5:22 AM 11/27/2008
I went to the chiropractor this week; what a relief! Pill My Ibuprofen/aspirin
bottles are taking a hit. I need to pay my sister back for a favor ... this will
involve MORE trips down to her place in Wisconsin ... I can help her with her
business. It's been a long time since that one trip, but, my back is still mad at
me. THE PAIN IS GOING TO BE TERRIBLE; I MUST DO IT!

THEY WERE COVERING THE TOPIC ABOUT WOLVES
IN THE U.P. ;THEY WERE QUOTING RESPONSES TO A NEWS STORY.

MY RESPONSE TO "LETTER-TO-THE-EDITOR ABOUT
WOLVES.
  • NATURAL IS NOT NECESSESARILY GOOD!

    Think about MOLD, FLU, BRA's. Wolves do not belong where we have people living.

    Most animals do not view children as humans ... rather as some sort of little animal/fair game.

    Last year, I lost all my flock of geese to
    predators. I worry about the little neighbor girl, & my little dog,
    & my cats.

WINTER has
its own kind of beauty ... and ... provides that survival challenge to keep life
interesting.





Snowplow I USTA BE A SNOWPLOW
DRIVER ... what a rush to send a big rooster-tail plume of snow. If the
snowbanks were really high ... you'd have to go fast enough to send the snow
high, up over the snowbank. One time, I was doing that. The bag of garbage set
up ontop of the snowbank turned out to be a kindergartener waiting for the
school bus! I stopped the plow truck & rushed back to the kid ... but, he
was okay ... just laughing & giggling ... he thought it was
funny!
