~ outside my window ~
The easy roads are crowded
And the level roads are jammed;
The pleasant little rivers with drifting folks are crammed.
But off yonder where it’s rocky,
Where you get a better view,
You will find the ranks are thinning
And the travelers are few.
Where the going’s smooth and pleasant
You will always find the throng,
For the many, more’s the pity,
Seem to like to drift along.
But the steps that call for courage,
And the task that’s hard to do
In the end result in glory
For the never-wavering few
~ Edgar Albert Guest
here’s the original…
I was getting dressed to go out and order lumber and stuff for the wood shed we’re building when I noticed this squirrel, eating something. Probably seeds, only thing I can think of. It’s not the first time I’ve noticed him on the rim of the pool – but not before this year. There’s a first time for everything. Oh, the bright spot is light from the flash. I could’ve cropped it out, but then it wouldn’t be “original”.
disgusted that fireworks are being let off this early, not Halloween yet, and my poor dog is hiding under the Christmas tree
Iran threatened the United States
“Iran cannot just watch this situation as a bystander. If the scope of the war expands, heavy losses will be inflicted in the US. Iranian 10/15/23 Iran’s foreign minister Hossein Amis-Abdollahian.
Threat is not US military, US forces in the middle east, not US citizens in Israel or Gaza (or in the US or anywhere else – there will always be bad actors) … threatens the United States!
Map shows 17 terrorist organizations with 58 branches, in 32 cities, in 20 states, in 2015
How many terror cells in the US in 2023?!?!
Nothing may happen, but I’d rather be prepared than not.
