At the end of this week the NRA is holding its annual convention in Indianapolis. My favorite female country singer – Sara Evans is appearing – along with Sarah Palin – so it is an all star cast.
I don’t think I will be able to convince Cate to go because she does not like guns, country music or Sarah Palin. This will be a shame because we would be able to see the Midwest in full cry.
Cate is horrified that almost all of her staff are licensed gun owners. She has not been able to come to grips with the gun culture.
Many Americans like to kill each other – and God’s furry creatures – in droves – and using guns is the most effective way of doing it.
We are not supposed to understand it.
Yesterday while everyone else was at church we painted our back fence – or at least the inside of it. God punished us by giving us both crippling backaches and today I can barely walk.
We are going to paint the outside of the fence – but only the part we can see. Our neighbors can make their own arrangements. Given the condition in which they keep their backyards and trash bins I don’t think they will be too worried.
Today I saw our first yellow bellied sapsucker. At least I am almost sure it was a yellow bellied sapsucker. It did not stay long so I could not get a picture.
The birds have found the bird bath and I now have to fill it five times a day.
