Let’s go back about 15-16 years.
I was unhappily married to my first wife The Evil One, had 2 dogs – Punkindog, Hillary Clinton (what else are you gonna name a fat li’l yella haired bitch?) a pair of Evil Cats and a cockatiel whose entire vocabulary consisted of “SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!”
Yeah. Life was real good.
So I’m sitting in my chair rolling up a fattie when Hillary goes trotting past looking real guilty.
“Godammit, Hill! How many times have I told you about that?” I holler as I bounce a 41 magnum round off her side.
She rolls over looking sufficiently guilty until my old lady comes in, then she runs over to her hoping for some loving, which The Evil One gives her.
“Don’t let her kiss you, you know she’s a CSED” I warned.
The Evil One is holding the Hill, letting her lick her face all over. “Oh, yes she is! She’s a CSED, huh? And what a cute little CSED she is! I loves my little CSED! Yes I do!!!”
Fuck it. I warned her.
“Was Kenny mean to the CSED? Huh?” Hillary was loving all the attention, licking The Evil One on the lips, ears, and doing the most irritating thing in the world, sticking that fucking terrier tongue up her nose. I hated it when she did that to me.
Then she asks (finally) “What’s a CSED?”
I licked the glue on the rolling paper and sealed the joint, popped in my my mouth and lit it, took a real deep toke and replied:
“A Cat Shit Eatin’ Dog.”

Anybody that’s ever used a hand coyote call knows that it’s something that you can’t do real well right out the gate, especially coyote vocalization calls like barks, yips, howls and ki-yis.
And you gotta be able to switch the calls up without a lot of thought. For example, you’re using a wounded jackrabbit squall and you bring in a pair of coyotes. You take the furthest one out first, but the near one has hit afterburner at the sound of the shot and is headed over the nearest ridgeline. Then you snatch your ki-yi and give it a try, hoping it’ll either stop or circle back around to check on its’ partner. The ki-yi sounds like your puppy when you stomped on its’ little paw – “Ike-ike-ike-ike”. My point is that you don’t have time to figure out how to use it then, you better already know where to bite that reed, how much air to push through and when to taper off.
And because of that, I generally have a coyote call within reach for that spontaneous practice blow. I practice at home in my Camouflaged BassPro Easy Chair, I practice when I’m driving, damn near anywhere except work and the library.
So today was a pretty pleasant day, temps were in the upper 60s and sunny. I was driving around town with my window down, doing errands, enjoying the weather and just happened to get caught at the busiest intersection in town right at noon. I was playing with a couple of different calls, blowing them softly, while it took me 3 light cycles before I got up to the intersection. Right when the light changed, I honked hard on the ki-yi call and watched traffic in all 6 lanes immediately come to a stop while everybody tried to figure out if they were the one that ran over that puppy.
It’s a good thing I was first in line because it was still stalled by the time I made the next light.
And no, I didn’t do it on purpose.
I don’t know Sam, why were you the first person to come to mind when I saw this?
Give Holly a hug for me and Lisa.
It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday.
More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds.
During the speech at at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government on Tuesday night, Monaco, who replaced John Brennan last year in overseeing the executive branch’s homeland-security activities, said that parents need to be suspicious of “sudden personality changes in their children at home.”
“What kinds of behaviors are we talking about?” she asked. “For the most part, they’re not related directly to plotting attacks. They’re more subtle. For instance, parents might see sudden personality changes in their children at home—becoming confrontational.”
Monaco lamented the fact that, “The government is rarely in a position to observe these early signals,” encouraging parents to act as watchdogs to detect radicalization in line with President Obama’s goal of combating homegrown extremism.
In the North West of Venezuala there is a swampy region where the river empties into Lake Maracaibo. The methane from the swamps interacts with the atmosphere to create an almost constant field of lightning that often continues for ten hours at a time, 200 days a year.
Actions may speak louder than words, but Sen. Richard Blumenthal took that mentality to the extreme on Friday.
The Connecticut Democrat was standing behind Milford Mayor Ben Blake on the town’s Metro-North station platform as the two held a press conference on railway safety. Complete with easels and charts, Blake was laying out the MTA’s safety violations, which total 139 over the last 10 years, worth $552,000 in fines.
“Safety, as you know, is paramount,” Blake said — and then this happened.
And this is a real treat – she’s preggers!!!
Especially with them stupid looking shorts he’s got on.
Y’all have seen the pictures here that I’ve posted of Hornitos. Cool little gold rush era town, lots of history – Ghiradelli Chocolate got it’s start here for one and the ruins of the factory are still there although they’ve cleaned them up considerably since I’ve been going there.
Most of the pictures I’ve shown here are on Bear Valley Road, the North-South road on the lest of the picture.
It’s only about an hour southeast of here and it’s a really nice drive through some very scenic rangeland like this:
The white rock you can see is natural quartz outcroppings. That portion of the Mother Lode is fucking loaded with it. Down around Mariposa, just a few miles southeast of Hornitos the Colorado mine still pulls some nice pieces of quartz with veins of gold running through it.
What’s really cool about that is you can soak quartz gold in acid and it’ll eat away the quartz but leave the gold, giving you a very beautiful sample of lace gold. If you’ve found a nice piece it might end up looking something like this:
No, these samples aren’t mine – I wish the bottom one was, it’s worth about 3 times it’s weight as specimen quality.
So I start talking about a semi ghost town and end up talking about gold. Damn, I must be fucking tired.
Federal Fire Power: Instead of putting a lien on the property of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, the Bureau of Land Management surrounded his ranch with 200 armed agents. It’s not the only agency with a private army.
Back in 2008, candidate Barack Obama slipped a little-noticed line in a speech, proposing a national police force reporting straight to him.
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military,” he said. “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
Sorry folks, I had a long-ass day today, left the house at 4:30 this morning and didn’t in til after 7 tonight and I’m beat to pieces. I’ll post some when I get in Saturday, God only knows what time that’ll be.
The best I can do ya ’til then is a set of twisty babes:
To “honor the dignity and work of immigrants,” Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco.
Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 – bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would “reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship.”
