I remember going goose and duck hunting on Lake Traverse, all by myself.
The ducks and geese would come off the lake and fly low over the haystacks up at the north end islands.
I’d climb to the top of the stacks, take off my heavy brush coat, and lay on my back, my coat a pillow, just watching them.
Even while they were within shooting range, I had plenty of shots all of the time there, so I’d just watch………… and maybe take a nap in the last days of the year, when you could do that in the heat of the sun in South Dakota.
I had no need to disturb anything while I watched clouds and the Indian Summer spider webs drift by.
……… Nature and I breathed in time. rdd

These are going to be intermittent now. I don’t have enough views to justify the time involved when I should be doing other things.
I will try to keep it interesting and post stuff I don’t think is allowed through FB.
The A-10’s and newer stuff are up in the air exercising their wings this morning. I love the sound of defense practice! We must stay sharp, we must stay equipped, and we must practice to defend ourselves from idiots! Their names are in the media news everyday.
And speaking of media, we must watch, listen, sort and decide who’s side we are on, our own or theirs. They range everywhere from the Vegas dude through D.C. lawmakers, right to our own front door. The Constitution is ours to keep, the National Anthem is ours to remind us to take a moment and be thankful, and our freedom depends on these.
Screw with other things and we’ll deal with them…… Don’t screw with our Anthem. It belongs to the real Americans for it’s own reasons. Not yours! Don’t go there. rdd

The Mumble Beneath the Street
At some point, when a government gets so big and handles so much money, little thief ethic groups that manage to get a job with them, steal a little. Then they find out they aren’t being caught and steal some more and don’t get caught. Then they lie to protect their great money making position with all of its benefits and notoriety.
When one finely does get caught out of carelessness and greed and the others see that they weren’t punished, they realize they are in a club of thieves and begin to protect each other, say ridiculous things, don’t do their job because they are enjoying the fine life of stolen tax money from the working class.
At some point they know they aren’t doing their job but don’t care.
The bottom feeders in the public that realize that the maze of government programs can’t be policed, so they begin to steal. The mass gets so large it’s like a voting school of fish. Waving and weaving they avoid the one being caught out of the masses of schools of fish, and they fuel each other with their own ‘media’, and religions of crutches and rationalization, and vote for the people handing out the cash. It becomes a way of life, and they spread the word to the other nations.
America is stupid and they hand out cash!
Then one day, an enforcer comes along………… and they hate him. Doh!
A flusssshhhhhhh, they scream as they try to fight the current, lose the battle, and go down the hole.
All of the bottom feeders begin to fade away as their food supply dwindles and quality of life goes down the tube too.
New, shiny men are back in power, the original ethic is re-instated much to the chagrin of the few left over snipers and screamers that cannot understand.
Things get better for the industrious class of inventors, artists, producers and gazers.
But, down in the sewer, in the dark, there survived the little stinky creatures, and they begin to multiply and mumble ………………. rdd
