Rufus is another transplant from Cincinnati. I can say the name of the city my kids are in now, because in about 4 weeks, max, they'll be living in Florida.
Rufus is 15 years old. He lived with an old woman in an apartment for 14 of those years. Then the old lady got to the point where her family moved her into assisted living. But she couldn't take Rufus.
A lady from her church said she would take him, but in reality she just picked him up and made an appointment to have him euthanized. Her son works with my daughter. He told E what was going on, and she took him. But she has a German Shepard who didn't like Rufus, and the feeling was mutual.
So, when the kids came to visit us, Rufus came here to live. We have never had a small, indoor dog before. He is not fond of the indoor cat, and that complicates things a bit. But he is getting along. He always lets us know when he needs to go out, especially between midnight and 3 a.m. Then he goes out in the meadow, and wanders around looking for "that perfect spot" while I light things up with the flood. I'm always a little concerned something is going to come roaring out of the tree line and snatch him up. Or snatch me up......
He spends his days on the couch in the living room, and seems pretty content. I have asked my daughter not to rescue any elephants or hippopotamuses.
This song is one I have posted before, but it's germane to our situation up here right now, so I thought I'd put it up again. I truly never thought, for a single minute, we'd ever have Moslems in this county, on the dark side of the moon. But they are here......
Texas has the same problem Georgia does. The real Texans are good people. But the state has been flooded with immigrants, and they've changed the nature of the cities , particularly in East Texas. Houston spent twenty thousand dollars plus, on changing the names of their schools from Confederate heroes to politically correct names. When people who have no connection to your culture move in, they will start changing your environment to suit their own values, if they have any. It's the way it works.
But they don't change. They just bring their own issues from their points of origin. They're all for change, but they want you to make it. Accommodate them, accommodate their beliefs, and you do the changing.
President pardons Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
President Trump is a lion, surrounded by jackals. He shows a lot of moral courage, something missing from the White House for the last eight years. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is an American hero. It's no wonder he ran afoul of the court system. The Dims tried to use their flunkies in the court system to shut him down, but they hadn't counted on President Trump.
I was at Walmart and they had some .22 LR in. For awhile, you could buy .22 LR there again pretty regularly, but it has disappeared from the shelves once more.
At our Walmart, the clerk who works at Sporting Goods also has to stock the toy shelves. On top of that, when they go on break, nobody works there and even if you find a clerk who's willing to help you, they don't have the keys to the ammo locker.
|$27.00 plus 7% tax here.|
So, when I saw there were some 550 round packs of high velocity hollow point Winchester .22 LR, I stopped by the ammo locker and just waited for somebody to show up. Somebody did, too, but it wasn't Walmart people. By the time the clerk came meandering down the aisle, there were four people waiting . There were five boxes of ammo. So each of us bought one box, and then the clerk wrote down a number from 1-20 on a piece of paper, and we all guessed it. I wasn't the closest, some older guy was right on the number so he got the last box.
