<sigh> I don't know what day it is except it is again cold and snowing outside while yesterday was intolerably cruel. Looking out through the windowpane yesterday was as beautiful as a painting by Monet. Pillowy white clouds floated upon a baby blue sky. However, once outdoors, the wind was unrelenting, fierce, and bitterly cold. Stepping off the porch you either cursed the ice under foot, the wind, or the cold. Most likely you cursed all three with the same breath.
Anyway, winter is blowing along and it has been too cold to take many walks. The dog found a few snaps to take, but none of them came out. We scrapped the bottom of the barrel and came up with these. It is just our way of saying happy winter.
Yes, the snaps are bad. What are you looking at? Well, I think it is just a farmer's junkyard. I could ask, but I don't like bother people.
How is your winter going?
> OMG... There is a lion in the house.
costume dog! so cute^^
<sigh> All the corn in harvested. I guess it is time for winter. But I like winter. How about you?
OMG... There is a lion in the house.
<sigh> THis is not the best snap because I don't have the right lens. However, if you enlarge the pic you can see a deer crossing the river. He is just a little speck in the photo. The dog and I watched the deer cross the river while we sat at the edge of the bank. I thought it was wonderful. What a lovely scene to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of nature. Well it was so I thought. It was on the way home that the automatic gun fire broke the silence of morning. Somebody killed that little deer. I do not have a problem with hunting if you have to feed your family, but the people where I live are so fat and well fed that the idea of feeding your family by killing a deer is nonsense. They kill just for fun. I've sat around tables and listened to their glorious hunting tales. In many of which they talk as if they are heroic as Beowulf slaying Grendel and his mother. But I tell you, I have shot many a gun. And there is nothing sporting about shooting a little deer crossing the river with an automatic rifle. It is just sad. And today I don't like people very much. But I can here your question, Why were I and my dog sitting at the river when there was shooting? I will tell you. It is not hunting season. You are not supposed to be able to kill deer without a license or not in season. But nobody cares if people are breaking the law. It is just another dead deer.
Hmmmm... I know this snap didn't come out, but the dog liked it. If you could only have seen in person the morning sunlight illuminating this wild flowers. Yes, they are wild. They grow in the ditch along the fence line. Planted by the birds I guess, lol, and allowed to grow in the shelter of the barbed wire fence. All the other grass, including the grass in the ditch, upon which the dog and I walk down the the river, is cut and bailed into hay. The field in the background during the winter is open for cattle to graze. When it is cold and windy the cattle make their way to trees in the background to find shelter from the cold winter wind. More about the hay, yes out town is extremely small, but all the vacant lots and land are cut 4 times a year for hay. Even upon the baseball field the grass is allowed to grow and bailed into hay. I feel bad for the children of the town, and wish they had a place to play ball in the summer. <sigh> At the very least they a launch fireworks from the old ball field every year to celebrate our independence day, the 4th of July.
He became friendly now. So why dont you talk to him?
He is asking you something so pls reply him.
I dislike your new chat friend very much.
Sorry to have been a bother.
Long time no chat. It is summer here & it is hot. This is a dog snap of main street where I live. Yeah, it is out of focus but we had some fog this morning. I still the clouds and the big sky though.
The sheep riding is called Mutton Busting.
Hey! Be careful with the word bareback riding. The slang meaning is having sex without a condom.
But Kanji are fun. Another Kanji that tickles me is 魔法瓶 which = thermos.
But back to the naked horse. The article was stating that the introduction of the horse by the Spaniards changed the evolution of the native peoples in North America. And of course, there were many pictures of horses.
Now, in my state farming and horses are very popular. In summer there are various rodeos. However, I never really got into bull riding, roping, or broncos. I think the most popular event is the children riding sheep.
Thank you for letting me know cham !
I should know many English words.
More dog walking. This is a pic of a sunrise over our cemetery. Can you see the cross in the distance? By the time we got closer to the cross the light was too much for the camera. So this is as close as we could get.
I figured out. I guess it means bareback riding.
Hmmm.... here is fall. Some days are cold, some are hot, and some very windy. Now farmers are busy cutting corn. In the summer the corn is so high that a person just can't see beyond out into the horizon. But when the corn falls it is all amazing how much land there is to see.
Thanks for the beautiful pictures & About 裸馬 = naked horse means
no saddled horse.
How do you say such horses in English?
I thought you were kidding me lol
American indians didnt use a saddle when they rode a horse
and they even didnt use a horse shoe it seems.
Hello? What is new?
Here are some more dog walk pictures. I guess this thread is all about a dog's world. Most of the pictures never turn out. I don't know how to adjust the light levels to capture the image.
& our town is not so fascinating. It is a rather dull place.
Encountered another interesting phrase.
What does the expression "ride the naked horse" mean.
it is an article about North American Indians and their horses.
Are not all horses born naked???
Long time no post. What is new?
Hey, came across something interesting while reading a magazine. Would you please explain
what is a, "甘い焼き玉子"?
I don't think we have such a thing as a sweet fired egg in the USA. Thanks!
