Hope he's got his mukluks on. That ice has to be cold.

PS Excerpt from a post on Don Surber's site. If you're of a certain age, it will make you smile:

Have you ever dialed a rotary phone?

Have you ever had a party line?

Have you ever had fewer than two TVs in your house and fewer than four stations?

Have you ever bought milk in a glass bottle?

Have you ever hung all your laundry on a clothesline outdoors to dry?

Have you ever made a purchase of one cent?

Have you ever been rejected for an oil company credit card?

Have you ever had a savings passbook?

Are you sure it wasn't a FAUX?

Sure. "Weren't you in Showgirls?"

It looks like a chicken. Are you sure it wasn't a chicken? I think it's a chicken.

edutcher said...

Why did the chicken cross the lake?

Looks like a red goat to me.

Roger Ailes may be casting a movie about the Great Wisconsin Public Union Bust of 2011.

That explains why Fox News avatars are on the lose in Madison.

I hear that Ailes plans to hire Kelly McGillis to play Ann Althouse and Tom Cruse to play Maverick Meade in a remake of Top Blog. (The nude scenes will only be in the European version.)

I have totally lost interest in Fox News. Any organization that considers (seriously) that Santorum-Gingrich is the just the TICKET for America is not a sort I value.

Thank goodness I am not a woman. This ticket would devalue my existence. I feel for my former GF. I see the challenges she has had with the GOP. Now, I know.

Liberty Paul or no vote: that is my decision.

With the way the word verifications are going, I'm beginning to suspect that maybe I am a robot.

Would you think less of me if I said you were a foxy robot?

Penny said...

Let me guess?

"It depends".

A great '70's roller rink number: Fox On The Run

Penny said...

Now my ears hurt.

Should have known better than to be taken in by someone who says there was a "great 70's roller rink number".

Penny said...

OK, so putting that aside...

How did those who went in search of that fox in the photo make out?

Penny said...

Awwwwww

OK, sometimes it really IS worth a click.

chickenlittle said...

OK, this was abetter 70's roller rink song. Maybe the best.

I'm very lucky to live in one of the few open spaces in the city of L.A., and I have foxes living behind my house. Although the dogs want to kill them on sight, the neighborhood cats get along great with them. At night the cats come from the houses and the foxes come from the fields. They meet in the middle and frolic and interact like Friends. I actually think they attempt to breed. It sure sounds and looks like it as far as I can tell in the dark with a nice strong flashlight.

I find this immoral - not the inter-species sex, but me watching it.

re: Surber's post questions. Yes, to all.

When my grandparents had their phone give up the ghost they called the operator to get a new one. When asked for their phone number my grandfather replied "oakwood 723" (if I remember correctly). The operator told him that couldn't be right, they hadn't issued a party line in over 20 years. But it was.

We also had a sheenie in our neighborhood. He would drive a horse cart up and down the streets in the neighborhood, mending pots, sharpening knives, etc. He would also sell fruit in season off the wagon. We kids would get apples and feed his horse. I remember my grandparents getting milk delivered to their door every other day.

The movies of my parents wedding show the cow pastures that surrounded the church.

My family has lived here in this suburb since Dec. 7 1941 (yes, that's why) My grandfather was moving the family to Daytona Beach and stopped in Louisville for the night. Woke up with Pearl Harbor in pieces, and Pappaw decided not to move to a ocean state.

My wife's family though, has lived on the same farm since before the American Revolution. One of her relatives was a general in the Revolution. Went by the name of Mad Anthony Wayne. I keep telling her that you don't brag about someone in your past being nicknamed "Mad" but she insists.(her parents didn't know whether to be more horrified that I was Italian, or Catholic)

I interrupted a cat and a possum playing in my front yard last summer.

Carnifex said...

I just popped outside to grab a coke from the truck. I demand you Yankee's come down here, and get your white shit off my lawn! What's the matter with you? Are you not happy unless everyone is miserable?

Damn snow!

Apologies ↑ preview didn't work.

It developed that is probably not a fox but a similar unknown animal. Unknown animals are appearing all over the place you know, global warming and all that. Still, whatever it is, clearly between wolves, coyotes, bobcats, and humans, it is bobcats that pose the greatest hazard to survival in the wild.

Used to see them running across Dollar Lake in Eagle River all the time, especially at dawn.

Hardy creatures.

Carnifex,

A "sheenie ," sir? Is that what you said? What is a sheenie?

Rusty said...

Don't worry Coyotes will take care of that. Around here they love foxes and cats.
