Dog Packs & Gators

Axel Foley is coming back!

If Indiana Jones can make a successful comeback after almost 20 years, why not the Beverly Hills Cop?  Paramount Pictures has given the go-ahead for a fourth installment of its “Beverly Hills Cop” franchise, with Eddie Murphy on board to return to the role that launched his movie career, the studio said this past week.  Keep a sharp eye out for “Rocky 76” coming to a Theater near you this fall.

Name something that 20% of American’s have NOT done.  Hard to believe, but I read it just this past weekend.  You are going to be surprised.  Click here for the answer.

Recently a friend of mine in Nevada turned down a job as an RV Technician because of the long commute to work and the high price of gasoline.  Smart move.  I understand now that they are predicting 305,000 less units to be produced in this country this year because of the fuel shortage/crisis.  Long time RV manufacturers have closed their doors in recent months. 

Alfa Leisure, Western RV and National RV all have shut down this year, starting in April.  There will possibly be more as the year wears on, this thing is like an Iceberg, we are just seeing part of it, the majority is still out of sight. 

By the way, if you are coming thru Oklahoma, “buckle up” and make shore you has yo’ papers, speed cops are writing tickets left and right.  Figures, gasoline tax revenues are shrinking, so they will write MORE tickets in order to make up the shortfall in revenues.  This should please our Governor and of course, all our friends in the Insurance Industry.

June is traditionally the month reserved for weddings and reunions.  We have applied to AAA Road Service for a membership.  Figuring it would be cheaper to have our truck towed to the event than drive it.  Don’t feel so awfully bad, in some places in Europe they are paying prices exceeding $11 a gallon which would drive me insane. 

My wife on the same token, would venture, “that would be a short trip.” 

Unbelievable, but it is true.  I am not doing all that well at $4 per now.  At $11 per gallon, well, that is enough for me to slink into the bathroom, fill the tub with warm water, lite some candles, turn on some soft music, and slit my wrists!  I will walk before I pay that kind of money for motor fuel. 

I will sit at home with my cob-webs and my attitude.  Check it out.  Now where did I put that bus schedule?

Someone needs to bring me up to speed on this.  Why is it, exactly, that Guam and Puerto Rico play a part in our national elections?  They are not states, nor are they afforded the rights of states (elected officials in the house/senate) why are they included in the political process?

Recently came across this.  Dog Pack Attacks Gator In FloridaAt times nature can be cruel, but there is also a raw beauty, and even a certain justice manifested within that cruelty.

The alligator, one of the oldest and ultimate predators, normally considered the ‘apex predator’, can still fall victim to implemented ‘team work’ strategy, made possible due to the tight knit social structure and ‘survival of the pack mentality’ bred into the canines.

What an incredible sight.  Note that the Alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the gator preventing it from breathing, while another dog has a hold on the tail to keep it from thrashing. The third dog attacks the soft underbelly of the gator.

Be forewarned … This is not for the squeamish

  1. Hey Cuz! Mom sent me your website and I love it! You were entertaining when I was 10, and extremely entertaining now that I’m pushing 40 (far away, far, far away!) I’m sure it’s because I understand it all now. The dog attack got the biggest BAW-HAW! Kind of like a train wreck, everyone has to look. Made me think of Daisy, the dog that should have scared the bejesus out of me, and instead…I’ve had two Shepherd’s, one passed at 13 :( and still have one, plus a MASTIFF of all things. Anyway, if you aren’t published in some magazine yet, you should be. Of course they’d sensor it so much it wouldn’t even mean the same thing. This is certainly your best venue.

  2. Well, I am going to take a stab at it and assume this is Teresa and YOU CANNOT BE PUSHING FORTY because that would make me REALLY OLD and I am not having any of that!

    No Sir.

    Welcome to the mix kiddo, jump in at anytime you wish and add to the pot.

    Whatever that means?

    I am not currently published in any magazine at this time, but my picture is still on the wall at the Post Office!

    Take care girl,

    DS
