Brings back memories of my little baby boy lying on the floor, twirling his hair (that's what he did when he was tired), and making car sounds driving his little cars up and down this.  I still have this one pictured in my closet.  Cannot bring myself to part with them.  His is the 1985 model--he was 3 years old at the time.  He was such a good boy!!!  My have times changed.

Lazy day today, keeping watch on the weather.  We had an F2 tornado down the road from us last week. I was home for lunch when it happened--it was really scary. We are under the gun tonight for more tornadoes.  It is almost 70 degrees outside so I know it will happen.  One thing I hate is it happening at night.  I always feel trapped just waiting for it to hit and then move along.

I think some of these could be attributed to Jose Baez.   
IT CAN BE HARD KEEPING A STRAIGHT FACE AS A COURT REPORTER

These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts, and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place.

  ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?
  WITNESS:     He said, 'Where am I, Cathy?'

  ATTORNEY:  And why did that upset you?
  WITNESS:     My name is Susan!
  ____________________________________________

  ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
  WITNESS:     Yes.

  ATTORNEY:  And in what ways does it affect your memory?
  WITNESS:     I forget..

  ATTORNEY:  You forget?  Can you give us an example of something you forgot?
  ___________________________________________

  ATTORNEY: Now doctor isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
  WITNESS:  Did you actually pass the bar exam?
  ____________________________________

  ATTORNEY:  The youngest son , the 20-year-old , how old is he?
  WITNESS:      He's 20 , much like your IQ.
  ___________________________________________

  ATTORNEY:  Were you present when your picture was taken?
  WITNESS:     Are you s#$%^ing me?
  _________________________________________
   (My Favorite)
  ATTORNEY:  So the date of conception (of the baby) was August 8th?
  WITNESS:     Yes.

  ATTORNEY:  And what were you doing at that time?
  WITNESS:     Getting laid
  ____________________________________________


(Another favorite)
  ATTORNEY:  She had three children , right?
  WITNESS:     Yes.

  ATTORNEY:  How many were boys?
  WITNESS:   None.

  ATTORNEY:   Were there any girls?
  WITNESS:     Your Honor, I think I need a different attorney. Can I get a
new attorney?
  ____________________________________________

  ATTORNEY:  How was your first marriage terminated?
  WITNESS:     By death..

  ATTORNEY:  And by whose death was it terminated?
  WITNESS:     Take a guess.
  ____________________________________________

  ATTORNEY:  Can you describe the individual?
  WITNESS:     He was about medium height and had a beard

  ATTORNEY:  Was this a male or a female?
  WITNESS:     Unless the Circus was in town I'm going with male.
  _____________________________________

  ATTORNEY:  Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?
  WITNESS:  No, this is how I dress when I go to work.
  ______________________________________

  ATTORNEY:  Doctor ,how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?
  WITNESS:     All of them.. The live ones put up too much of a fight.
  _________________________________________

  ATTORNEY:  ALL your responses MUST be oral , OK? What school did you go to?
  WITNESS:     Oral..
  _________________________________________

  ATTORNEY:  Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
  WITNESS:     The autopsy started around 8:30 PM

  ATTORNEY:  And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
  WITNESS:     If not , he was by the time I finished.
  ____________________________________________



And last:

  ATTORNEY:  Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
  WITNESS:     No.
  ATTORNEY:  Did you check for blood pressure?
  WITNESS:     No.
  ATTORNEY:  Did you check for breathing?
  WITNESS:     No..
  ATTORNEY:  So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
  WITNESS:     No.
  ATTORNEY:  How can you be so sure, Doctor?
  WITNESS:     Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
  ATTORNEY:  I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
  WITNESS:     Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and
practicing law.

Blue Moon, how did you make out?

 



Hey Bearly, we survived the night.  The wild winds woke me up about midnight and I stayed up til about 2:00 before I went back to bed.  It was a rocky time.  We developed a roof leak from the tornado the week before--guess the wind blew the shingles back enough to let rain in.  NOW we have to have the roof replaced.  We are having flood warnings now, a creek down the road from me had spilled it's banks into the fields and covering the roads and it is still raining--calling for at least 2 inches today, not counting yesterday's rain which probably about 1 inch.  It is 63 degrees today, a year ago it was about 19 degrees and lots of snow on the ground.  Go figure!

Hi Blue Moon....wild winds here also and now under flash flood warnings although they tell me
I am high enough that even an Ark could pass without getting to my front door.

I was going to go to the Amish store way down the highway east of me.  Someone brought me a little jar of salve for sore knees (or anything else), and it seems to work.  Got directions from a local person yesterday and ended up at a Mennonite bakery....a wonderful place, but I was only a third of the way to the Amish store.  Will have to wait for better weather.

As my closest neighbor, I love hearing from you....lol.

Good to hear from you again Mere. 
I go to the local Mennonites--in fact the tornado last week hit in their area.  We have the Shakers at Auburn that we go to sometimes and they have a store with all homemade goods.  I love going to their store.  Used to have a Mennonite bakery at Fountain Run but it closed up.  They made fantastic cakes and pies. 

It is still raining here, be glad when it stops.  We need to get this roof replaced soon.  Hubby told me it was winter---I told him you couldn't prove it by me.  I read up on what temps you could install roofing safely and it can be installed even in 30 degree weather so we should be o.k. with temps in the 50's, 60's and 70's.

That's just amazing.

They have sure evolved from the dogs that spent the day wandering from dog to dog trying to tell what each other had for dinner that night.

Then there are people like this who don't know how valuable and lovable these animals really are.  Who is the animal here?

Disturbing report on Niagara Co. SPCA

The most disturbing discovery Carr made involved how the shelter euthanized, or killed animals. While other animals were in the room, the staff injected a sedative into the animal, paralyzing the muscles. Then while the animal was still conscious, it was injected with a liquid that went into the heart, causing excruciating pain.

How sad.  But a good ending for these two.

Pregnant orangutan mother and child rescued at last minute from knife-bearing bounty hunters in Borneo
 
The incident showcases the threat orangutans are facing as they are targeted for slaughter with a price on their heads

By Rolando Pujol / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Friday, January 27, 2012, 11:11 PM




Itís a remarkable photograph: A pregnant orangutan protectively clutching her five-year-old child as death seems imminent at the hands of bounty hunters armed with knives.

At the last minute, however, members of Four Paws, an international animal-rescue group, swooped in last week and prevented their killings in Borneo, the Daily Mail reported.

"A few minutes later and the orangutans could have been dead," said Dr. Signe Preuschoft, a primate expert with the British-based organization, according to the Daily Mail. "We discovered a gang of young men surrounding them and both victims were clearly petrified.

ďThe gang meanwhile were jubilant in anticipation of their rewards for catching and killing the animals."

The incident, compellingly captured in a dramatic photo of the mother cradling her child for dear life, casts a fresh light on the disturbing plight of orangutans, who were once common throughout Southeast Asia but now mostly live in Borneo and other areas in Indonesia.

The mother, estimated to be between 25 and 30, and the child were the only orangutans the team found alive in the area surrounding a palm-oil plantation. The group said it was scouting the area after reports of mass organutan slaughter.
