Well, I am about a mile from the Atlantic Ocean, so our time zones are a bit different.

Cannot bear to look at that other thread.

Having a rum & coke. I don't even like rum & coke. Will probably have another one soon.

Well, Lani. I think I will join you. Where is Phelena? She usually has some good booze and music. I will not discuss the "other thread". This is where we come to forget. Especially those of us who don't have TeeVee to watch old B&W movies, or binge on The Andy Griffith Show. I could use me a little Andy, Barney and Aunt Bee right now.

Yes! Yes! Yes! Not many episodes I don't remember, and I never get tired of them. How about "The Stranger Comes to Town". When Barnie gets both of his hands snapped in mouse traps! Laughing now as I recall the episode. Also very sweet with a lovely lesson.

My dad's family is from western North Carolina 40 miles from where Andy Griffth was from. The little town of Yadkinville (population 2,818) is very Mayberry-esque. Maybe even more so these days as the real Mayberry -- Mount Airy -- is five times bigger. My dad went to college with Andy Griffeth.

2 years ago when my mother was waiting quite impatiently to die, she decided she would have tea and cupcakes with my dad's cousin's wife, who was also quite ill. 1,000 miles between them was immaterial. We'd have the town baker send cupcakes, a tin of tea, and some flowers to Ben and his wife. At a specific time, they'd each have tea served to them.

Well, I called. The order was easy, but the baker said Ben didn't live at that house anymore. He lived down in another town. No, Ben did live in that house, I had just talked to him. Turns out there's a limited number of names in the family, it was another cousin. But the baker had gone to school with both. We ended up sending to Ben's office so the deer wouldn't eat the flowers.

50-some years ago, Mom and 4 kids drove down there to visit Dad's family. Driving through VA, Leadfoot Mom got stopped for doing 90 MPH, a speed that would normally get her in jail overnight (I am told). When we heard that, 4 little kids started crying and screaming. The officer considered how hard it would be to find placement for the kids and let her off with a massive ticket. Off we went.

Crossing over into Yadkin County, Mom was back up to lightning speed when another cop pulled us over. Oh no, we're going to jail for sure! The officer came over and said, "Mrs. whateverMom, Miss Mary told us to keep an eye out for you and give you a proper escort into town. " They let us play in the car talking on the radio, running the siren and the lights, etc. very Andy Taylor. (Miss Mary was my Grandfather's sister and ran the library . She was very well-respected. She was the primary school teacher for many years until Brown v. Board of Education, when she decided to quit so she wouldn't have to teach the black kids. Didn't see THAT on the Andy Griffith Show.)

I'm probably one of the folks in this age group who never watched Andy. Perhaps we didn't get that channel. We only got three channels and you had to go rotate the antenna to get the third. I have large gaps in my cultural references. I know nothing about Charlie's Angels or any other ABC network show.

I've had some scotch and I'm quite mellow now. No television for me tonight.

The network we didn't get was CBS. They obviously didn't have as good a repeater as the ABC, NBC affiliates and the PBS station. So, I'm up to date on Andy Griffith, but I never really watched Gunsmoke.

Nah, I liked the other brother...Now what was his name? Candy? or was candy the cook? Obviously I wasn't that obsessed.

I didn't like Michael Landon. He was too much of a pretty boy. I liked Adam (Pernell Roberts) the best and then probably Lorne Greene, even though he was way too old for me.

Crawled out of the tank this morning, ready to face the world - except for that other thread. Heard something about emails/FBI/Weiner. Crawled back in.

Send wine.

From 3/13/16 introduction
:sarcastic: :like:
It seems that I was drawn here as were others because of the curiosity of the bird refuge takeover.
I found a good site with intelligent, insightful, and funny posts that are based on actual news and facts.
One thing I wondered about was why take over a federal bird refuge in the high desert in Oregon in January, rather than say a federal bird refuge in, for instance, Molokini anytime. :sharky; Wouldn't even need the beards.
I should make this short, just saying hi.

Took off 4 hours early so only 80 hour week this week. I had to get in the drunk tank sometime this week, after I heard the verdict.
Seriously where does leave the future of national parks?

Reddog asked:

Unchanged, IMHO. This was one trial that got snagged on a technicality and what seems to be mistakes by the prosecution in charging, jury selection, presenting their case, and allowing a juror to be replaced and whose presence on the jury would have led to a different outcome. Their rhetoric about the tyranny of the government has proved to be hollow though they may not realize that yet. That, too, is a set back for their cause.

The fact that there were so many informants working for the government will have a deterrent effect on Bundy sympathizers at least for a while. That and the fact that there was nothing gained by the occupiers except notoriety and their losses are significant. How many 'patriots' would be willing to go through what this bunch has gone through since the occupation ended?

The parks themselves will remain the same. We need to vigilant of legislation. We need to keep watching militia and patriot groups. We need to talk to our federal workers, get to know them when we can, find out what they do. Let them know that we appreciate their stewardship of our public lands.

The one thing that I worry about regarding our national parks is that some of them might have valuable mineral deposits. See Clinton Unveils Deal to Stop Yellowstone Mine for a 1996 example.

I mostly read.... but I do post.. I was here when the verdict came down.. I felt like I had the wind knocked out of me.I have had a few mango martinis. I am angry and shocked and bemused. I am going to be present on the Nevada thread, those scoff laws need to be brought to heel. I was so depressed.. when they walked out acquitted. We must not give up the fight. We have to be vigilant and keep shining the light.

Is it bad form to drink wine while handing out candy?

Not from the bottle.

And don't make the mistake of handing out the wine while eating the candy.
