Me too. She and I could easily be besties.
“The bugle sounds, the charge begins…but on this battlefield no one wins….”
Things like that drive me nuts. Whatever religion (or lack therof) CELEBRATE! Christmas, Hanukkah, Solstice, Mawlid el-Nabi, Festivus, Saturnalia, Zarathosht Diso, Rohatsu, Feast of the Holy Family…WHATEVER, celebrate! However, the fact that someone celebrates differently than someone else is no reason to take away the right for the other person’s celebration in the case of ‘offending’ them. In contrast, we should encourage all kinds of celebrations. If you don’t celebrate a certain holiday, then don’t…just don’t make everyone else kowtow to your beliefs. Respect in regard to the many different cultures and beliefs should be shown and encouraged, not held back in the case of offence.
The squirrels won’t touch ours here, either. They do eat EVERYTHING else, though!
Phys Ed classes maybe, but to pass gymnastics to graduate? Jeez, I trip and faceplant on thin air as it is. They’d have to have 9-1-1 on speed dial if that were my case!
Reminds me of the song ‘The Clansman’, about the Highlanders defending their land. I LOVE that song!
I need one of those!
I love Wigglesworth!
Spiders are always welcome in my home!
