Roopkund Lake: Apparently centuries ago a group of travelers got caught out on the open plains in an enormous hailstorm, and all died (the skulls all show damage that fits the theory). The floods from the rain and melting hailstones washed the bodies down into the lake which preserved them.
The seed catalogues HAVE been going out in droves, since New Year’s Day. I see thousands of them in transit. Maybe Charlie forgot to get on the mailing list.
The kids around here are bummed because the snow event is happening over a weekend. On the other hand, hubby is delighted not to have to drive a semi in a blizzard.
Never had to deskunk a dog but did have to (TWICE!) remove porcupine quills from a certain idiot dog’s nose. You’d think that the lesson would have stuck (pun intended) but no. Wondered how the dog even knew how to breathe.
I have milkweed growing along the pond. Almost never see a caterpillar. Did see a few monarchs this year, though. Did any of you see on MLB site the monarch that landed on a pitcher’s glove as he was about to release the ball?
The joys of gov’t healthcare.
Actually, Chip, you are sort of wrong. I have a cat who regularly drags hubby’s dirty underwear out of the hamper and across the floor…. but not to chew on. Instead, they become his “toy”. Yes, the cat is neutered.
Saturday in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
People dancing, people laughing
A man selling ice cream
Singing Italian songs
Eh Cumpari, ci vo sunari
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I’ve been waiting such a long time
Yes, it’s how I got my knee laid open to the bone 30 years ago. Dog ran in front of my bike while I was on a chip & seal road (think asphalted gravel).
For those who actually find this comic: I had a co-worker who was missing some Xanax so he did this, putting marbles in the medicine cabinet when a neighbor came over yet again to visit his wife. Said neighbor would always excuse herself to use the bathroom during the visit. This time, they heard the marbles fall into the sink and caught her red-handed stealing the tablets.
