I'm just floating around trying to get peoples opinions on the UN small arms "treaty" that our government is probably about to sign. What do you think?

Good comment for debate, but unfortunately my brain is too fried for that one tonight. I'd ramble and make an utter fool of myself...

Tomorrow would be a great time to pop in and talk with the regulars on this thread. Great debates roll in here! Sorry, I'm just too pooped tonight. It's bed time for me...

Please though, come back tomorrow and let's get a discussion rolling on this, OK?

Oh thanks , I hope to be doing something right with my life.... Maybe they will reap from it someday , if not then hope for them to have memories, to pass on. I need to register as well, but can anyone see your email? Is it secure?

No, it did not get removed. I don't understand why you think they are gone, when they most certainly are not.
Some few just like to draw attention to themelves by creating controversy. The inspirational posts (even if copy-pasted) are much better than rectal body functions, continual arguing, denials, and useless sarcasm of other people's faiths or life-styles.... NOW THAT IS THE REAL SPAM.

It's raining here! Thunder off in the distance, ever so calming... I adore a steady rain at night. Tomorrow everything will be crisp and clean..
Also, nice to see out new visitors in the thread. Please stick around! This is a wonderfully informational and fun thread. Is is possible that you newbies could register on Topix so we know for sure who we're talking to?
(Also it keeps someone from hijacking your user name for ill purposes and placing nasty comments)...
I can usually tell imposters from the real....people have distinct ways of typing...sorta like handwriting, not real worried about it. Plus the black bird thing is so 2011, I like more up to date bible prophecy.

<quoted text> So know what you mean, when I was little , my grandpa would plow the baccor, and I would rid with him. Then years later , I was the one driving it. Yea a sight to see a young girl of 14 driving that tractor. Those days are so few now, that I try to raise my children this way also. I cook on Sunday and everyone is invited to eat , and my children know all about hauling in hay, working the garden and all the things that I grew up doing. Life was so much more then. You kissed each other goodnight , and kissed each other good morning. Until the day we put my grandfather away , he never went a day without tellin my grandma how much he loved her . Their love was one dreams were made of .. Nite to all , hope your loved ones, value you each , for all you are, and never take you for granted...And may you have the love that dreams are made of!!!!
I know all about the old country days of riding the mule, curing pork, rendering lard, churning butter, packing water, no electricy, and the morning treks to take the thunder mug to the little house on the hill with the half-moon cut into the door. I have now purchased my childhood home next to the farm my grandfather once owned, but is now all woods. I started here and I will end here but fortunately the TVA and the RECC have made life much easier.

But I still take daily walks down mmemory lane to look at the foundation of my grandfather's old house of Love. I can also ride to the little country church about a mile away where my ancestor was married in 1806. I AM HOME.

Is Ancient Wolf around tonight, or Hempaburn?
Come out, come out, wherever you are........
Rarely ever on at night. Dog and I arise early with the crowing of the rooster and dog goes to make sure the tree my father planted 60 years ago is still there. We even make coffee in the Mr. Coffee instead of firing up the wood stove, dipping water from the rain barrel and boiling the coffee in a blue granite pot. Incidentally, boiled coffee is quite good and you can add a small amount of cold water to make the grounds sink to the bottom.

Goodmorning to the good posters. Today the olymplc opening ceremonies kick off at 7:00 I think. I will be watching for sure, haven't missed one since '60's. I 'm glad the ousted Olympian was not ours that made the racial comments. Best to know where you are before opening your mouth. Well, got to mow a few graves before the rain hits.

Have a great day,,,,,,,, trolls, not so much.

What a refreshing story! More please! It makes me feel a bit better to read that a parent actually knows who to parent their children in the right manner. Work doesn't hurt a child, nor does passing the stories on about their ancestors. They'll appreciate all you're doing and telling them one day.
My granddaughter that I have only seen 3 times in 8 years has been here for a week listening to all my ancestoral stories as well as the history of this land and it's peoples and going through her Granny's old photos and picking out some special ones to take back home with her. Sadly, she will leave today. She has turned into quite the young lady and is diplomatic enough to brag on my country cooking. She especially liked the chicken and dumplins, tomatoes, corn on the cob, the green beans with country ham bits, baked corn bread, and fried apples. For the past week, we have boycotted hotdogs, bologna, and pizza. LOL

Good LORD willing and the creek don't rise, I will be back on this thread just before sunset and again before sunrise. Those are my times to wind down or crank up. Until then, may everyone have a good day and be Thankful for our blessings... CLICK....

So glad you are were you belong... It sometimes takes awhile for that to happen in our lives. I think I would die in the city. Fire flies of a night, and my rooster crowing in the morning, nite , day and all. See if I go outside at 1 in the morning and turn on the porch light , he thinks its morning and goes to crowing.. His time clock is messed up and mine is running out!!
So glad your grandaughter has gotten to spend time with you, trust me nothing is greater than being with a good pa!!! Should know mine was one of the best. Rose up at 5 , went to work all day in the fields, at 11 came in for lunch , back to the fields and came in again at 5 for supper. He was not much on words, but you always knew he loved you , just from being near him. Oh well enough down memory lane, Got to get to work... Good day to you all.. May your day be filled with those you love, if not seeing them today , pick up the phone and just for today , tell someone you love them...As the hold song says by LR , I Just called to say I love you..........

@AW,, As a child my parents would bring me to ky on vacations with the grandparents. I recall the first dinner I ate at one grandparents house, chicken and dumplings. I was about 5 years old and told to dig in. I picked up the big spoon and stirred the large bowl of dumplings and this god awful claw came rising up out of the thickness with a dumpling lodged between it's toes. Scared the hell out of me. The old timers cooked the chicken foot right on the leg for flavor back in day, but I'd never seen it nor expected this creature from the grey lagoon to come rising out of there. Tasted great though.

On a lighter note, chicken feet are the number one movie snack in China and Japan, it is their popcorn.

Goodmorning, Humpaburn here. Today the olympic opening ceremonies kick arse at 7:00 I think, not sure I'm a little bit drunk. I will be watching for sure, haven't missed one since the 60's. I'm glad the ousted Olympian was not ours that made the racial comments. Best to know where you are before opening your mouth, you might get your arse kicked. It wasn't very nice for her to say she would like to see Humpaburn slam a race car into the wall doing 200 mph.
Well, got to go mow a few graves before the rain hits. That way I can be over someone today. Have a great day,,,,,,,you old stale farts not so much. Humpaburn out.

Oh my dear Lord, I literally just spewed coffee on my computer screen and keyboard, LOL! No lie! SO TRUE THAT STORY IS! My Mom always told us that she and her siblings fought over the "scratchers" as they would call them. They always fried up the chicken feet too when my Grandma or my Great Grandma Gregory culled a hen, usually two hens because there were so many of them, sitting down at the diner table, hehe. She says there was many a time they where sent from the table to go out and cut a switch for fighting over those "scratchers", LOL!! And as it's a well known fact, that switch had better be a good one or you went back out to get a better one and got a worse woopin'.

<<<snort>>>
I need a minute to recover from that story, HAHAHA!!
(Wiping tears from my eyes, hehe). Thanks, Hemp. I love starting my day with a gut busting giggle.
Much obliged to ya for that one, darlin'. My day has started of well!!

Yes, they WILL benefit from knowing their heritage. Not so much now if they are really young, but once they are older they'll be pleased that you passed on the legacy of their ancestors.

Also, you can register without fear of the email or private messages as they are called, being viewed by anyone other than who you send them to. They're completely secure. Only you, the recipient and the Mods can see them. And the Mods have too much to do on a daily basis to scour our private messages. They are also deleted internally after I think 30 days...

Please do register. But let us know it's you once you get it done. You don't have to completely fill out that profile thing, either. Also, you can set your comment posting history to private so that no one can chase you down by following your posts in order to stalk you. It's completely optional.

I like to keep my comment history public, but have to reset it periodically because I have a stalker or two that don't like my presence in the threads. That's just too bad though, I'm not going anywhere or I'd have left here over 7,000 comments ago, hehe.

Glad to have you here!! Again, welcome to the dead bird thread! So happy to have you here, as I'm sure the others are too!

I'm absolutely certain that this wasn't directed at you personally, BFH. You DO have an odd moniker though considering that we presently have another "fart" type moniker already in our midst at the present time.....

As you become more familiar with this thread and the people who frequent it, you'll notice that there are a select few who don't really have anything to add unless it's rude, crude and off topic. They enjoy placing what are sometimes pretty vulgar attacks against others in here.. The comments don't usually stay up very long though..

Please don't leave, and don't let them get to you should they zero in.. The Mods are keeping BIG time tabs on this thread lately for some reason...

Tell me when this thread is updated:
