Dog Tale

My good friends and neighbors  yesterday had their dog Noah Franklin pass on yesterday.  Noah was a male Aussie Shepherd that was super-smart, good natured, and a neighborhood icon.  Noah was up in years but had just received a second chance on life several months ago after he was discovered to be ill.  He was diagnosed with large abdominal tumors, that the vet removed, but his fate was uncertain.  For the past three months or so he was alert, and spry, but we all knew he was on borrowed  time. 

Last night his owners, neighbors, my wife, and myself, hung out and had a kind of an impromptu wake, consuming adult beverages and talking about Noah Franklin.  This story was related to me by Noah's owner and my guitar picking partner "Hazy Grout".

Hazy had left Noah in the care of a friend while he vacationed up north .  Almost immediately after Hazy departed, Noah had escaped and wound up incarcerated in the county pound. Now I know what you are thinking, "Poor Dog" has to spend a week or so in the pound locked up in the pound. He will probably be sold for a dog biscuit and become some mutts  "Bitch". 

Well, not so fast....

When Hazy went to pick up Noah, he encountered typical county govt. agency  bureaucracy.  It seems they could not locate a Male Black and White Aussie Shepard,  but reported  "we have Black and white female named Noah".  The un-neutered dog was locked up for almost two weeks with the female population!  Noah slept steady for three days after his return home and probably still curses Hazy for "posting his bail"!  (Told you the dog was smart.  Probably had the whole thing planed out.)

He will be missed.

This was also a topic of discussion last night, The twilight Zone episode The Hunt from 1964.

The Folly of Unilateral Disarmament

Story: The Folly of Unilateral Disarmament

At Fort Hood “more guns” assuredly were “the solution to gun violence.
After a great debate with several truly great friends Mr. Liberty sends me this story. 
( If I had time I would post the entire conversation, but this article sums up my point and doesn't have as may spelling mistakes.)

DC sniper's Muhammad's execution

Story: DC sniper's Muhammad's execution set for tonight

I am looking forward to tonight's execution of John Allen Muhammad as much as one would look forward to having ones kitchen sprayed for bugs.  I am completely unemotional about the death of this bug person but I know I will sleep better now that it he has been removed from the face of the earth.  I can only hope that he as found peace and forgiveness from a loving god but somehow I doubt that this Jihadest scumbag did.  Good riddance and I hope you get to enjoy a pork chop dinner as you last meal (fed as a suppository).   We must remember that 10 people were removed from the face of the earth prematurely with no chance to finish their lives, talk to their love ones, share one more thought. The will never again hug their children, spouses, or even get the chance to ask for forgiveness from someone.

Get the F*** off my earth!

UPDATE: D.C. sniper Muhammad executed for 2002 attacks
