Happy Independence day!

I was sitting on the porch half asleep, taking a break from stacking yesterday, why my neighbor came by trying to enlist my help in moving some farm equipment.
Upon hearing of the number of bales I still had to pick up and realizing he was next on my list he decided he didn't actually need my help.
But, he did note that Yamhill County has put their trucker harassment officer back on the job. I guess one of his hay trucks got stopped and she inspected the straps holding the load. I'm quite happy to know the general public is much safer now.
If only you could just bribe the local official to leave you alone like you do in other THIRD world countries.
It got me thinking of Independence day.
Then I saw this video on the news.
The guy was taping police officers and they shot his dog. 
You shoot a police dog and you go to jail.
Look at the headline, Perhaps there is some justice in the world. Of course it is pretty ironic that people can be shot when cops get the wrong address and you hear nothing but a stupid Rottweiler gets shot and the public is up in arms.
The spin cycle should start soon.
In honor of Independence day, I think we should all take a moment and think how our government has protected those cherished freedoms that our forefathers fought and died for.
Perhaps envision John Hancock's signature and wonder how times have changed, or if they have changed at all.

Now this is just plain funny, in a horrible sick sort of way... I think perhaps some different training is in order...


  1. No-one will take responsibility. The woman was TOLD the shelters were full, but she still wanted SOMEBODY ELSE to solve her problem. Granted, it would have been kinder to not have shot the kittens in front of the kids.

  2. Stop the spin cycle! I want off!

    1. It's kind of out of balance and making thumping sounds.

  3. The kitten story reminds me of one Harvette tells of a woman who came in with a sick chicken and so standing operating procedure he kills the chicken and does a postmortem then asks her how many chickens do you have she answers iPad 3

    1. Harvette=our vet
      IPad 3=I had three

      Siri could work for the police.

    2. THat is pretty funny. I'm thinking perhaps she didn't expect that?

  4. Thursday we visited Fort McHenry and one of the things they did was read the entire Declaration of Independence. It is amazing how many of the grievances fit the present government. I am sure it would be considered treason today.

    Grace and peace.

    1. I was thinking the same thing. Of course there are special and different circumstances today... Of course there are....
