While out 'hunting' for more birds Bud and I spotted these in the fields...
Susie Lee done fell in love
She planned to marry Joe.
She was so happy 'bout it all
She told her pappy so.
Pappy told her, "Susie Gal
You'll have to find another.
I'd just as soon yo' ma don't know,
But Joe is yo' dear half brother!"
So Susie put aside her Joe
And planned to marry Will.
But, after telling pappy this
He said, "Thar'd be some trouble still!"
"You can't marry Will, my Susie Gal,
And please don't tell yo' mother...
But Will and Joe, and several mo'-
The boys, they'd be yo'folk,
they's all, likewis'n, yo' half brother!"
But, Mama knew, and said "My Gal,
Just do what makes you happy!
Marry Will or marry Joe...
You ain't no kin t' pappy!"
On Chritmas evening, just about dusk, I was getting ready to do a bit of cleaning up of wrapping and trash paper. This chore takes me into the garage to open the door and dump the refuse in the bin for city pickup. As I walked to the open area of the garage as the door opened, I saw some dark cloud lines in the sky and had to go back in the house for the cellphone. It all began with this photo. The cloud formation reminded me of horizontal venetian blinds...like the day was at an end and the closing of the blinds will soon bring darkness...
...then, by the time I was finished with the wrapping paper and closing the bin's lid, the 'blinds' had a hint of pink.
The evening was balmy, the temperature mild. I stood outside with my cellphone and just watched the colors change as the sun set in the west. Turning a full 360 degrees I snapped photos. The moon was 'dry' but very visible at times as the clouds swirled and went from a dull purple to rose pink to amber/orange.
Sometimes it reminded me of cotton candy, or the cherry filling in a chocolate covered morsel. While other times I thought fire, or glowing embers. No matter what; it was all such a brilliant and bountiful way of painting the end of a perfect day!!

After living in the remote wilderness of Kentucky all his life...
... an old codger decided it was time to visit the big city. In one of the city’s stores, he picked up a mirror and looked in it. Not knowing what it was, he remarked, "How about that! Here’s a picture of my daddy."
He bought the "picture," but on the way home remembered that his wife, Lizzy, didn’t much like his father. So he hung it in the barn, and every morning before leaving for the fields, he would go there and look at it.
The man’s many trips to the barn began to draw Lizzy’s suspicion. One day after her husband left, she searched the barn and found the mirror. As she looked into the glass, she fumed, "So that’s the ugly so-and-so he’s runnin’ around with."
...ONE MORE, THEN I GOTTA GO [no pun intended, but read on]...
A young reporter went to a retirement home to interview an aged but legendary explorer. The reporter asked the old man to tell him the most frightening experience he had ever had. The old explorer said, "Once I was hunting Bengal tigers in the jungles of India. I was on a narrow path and my faithful native gun bearer was behind me. Suddenly the largest tiger I have ever seen leaped onto the path in front of us. I turned to get my weapon only to find the native had fled. The tiger leaped toward me with a mighty ROARRRR! I soiled myself." The reporter said, "Under those circumstances anyone would have done the same." The old explorer said, "No, not then - just now when I went 'ROARRRR!'"
