Yahoo… it snowed last night and up on the ridge were drifts in the cuts… got the skies out n axed them, ready to hit the slopes. Hot doggie, down the pasture over the hill…. oops dat’s a little brown n too slippery.
Watched the parade of homeless yesterday. A single guy walking on the highway, not hitching, just walking. Later that evening saw a couple come riding past. They were headed for the fairgrounds to spend the night. My curiosity got to me so I went and talked to the them. It was a guy and his girlfriend, in their mid 50’s. They were on the road with their horses, left Wyoming and headed cross Colorado for New Mexico and on to Arizona. The guy said he couldn’t find work and so he sold most everything and loaded up the horses and on the road they rode. A little different style of going homeless but that is the life he wanted.
South out of town they rode…. into the horizon… err sunset?
Other oddities… do ya see a connection?
Been reading parts about the new law in Arizona and I wonder if the federal government has any priorities. For a year and a half the focus has been of government health insurance and all this time the border problem has been boiling. I wonder how many will be killed, in addition to the usual killings. People will die and for what purpose. There is already hate growing on both sides and shooting will be a result, just a question of how big.
Now if the health care issue had been put on the back burner, how many people would die from lack of healthcare, my guess zero, and the immigration problem dealt with and something reasonable done how many lives would that save. So again where are priorities……..?
It was asked why didn’t Bush do anything about it, probably the same reason Obama is doing nothing, politics and offending special interest groups.
I look at this and the two issues of health care and immigration and wonder what kind of country are we morphing into? People’s toes will be stepped on and feelings will be hurt but what about the country and the people that live in it.
Oh I have only 2nd to 7th generation European ancestry and I hold nothing against legal immigration. My grandparents come out here with their goods in an emigrant railcar, all very legal.
Now I need to get me a horse and go riding off into the sunset or go find a bridge to camp under.
