    @Jeremiah was a Bullfrog ~ Not ME! I don’t like squid, but my adult kids do. They even like Sushi (yuk), not me. But, I like to watch squid at aquariums, in doc’s. They’ll fascinating animals. ‘Specially the one with headlights!

    @J ~ Yes, it sounded like they were surrounded by something other than “black panthers”. One, no “panthers” in SETX, and two, since when do cougars surround anything in packs? They’re supposed to be solitary, aren’t they? Personally I believe it was a bunch of juvey sasquatch messing with the “hunters”. The only reason I knew about the incident is because I had trouble falling asleep, especially when spending the night away from my own home. I listened to the drama and wondered about it. However, my step dad was a very silent man and didn’t tell the kids stuff like that. My mother was a bit of a gossip, and I’d overhear her on the phone cackling about it to her friends (haha, my dad called it a hen party). So, no, I didn’t get any further low down on that particular trip the guys made “up country” to hunt.

    Re: “Cool squid, but somehow I got the feeling it doesn’t want to snuggle.” ~ Yes, huh! There’s a squid called a cuddle (snuggle) fish, uh, or is it ‘cuttlefish’ (never mind, different term). Still thought it was heartwarming.

    @Knobby ~ Yet, it is still called a panther? I don’t understand why people don’t just call it the ‘Black Jaguar’. At any rate, yes, they are reported in the South.

    I’ve mentioned the time when my step dad and his hunting buddies burst into the home late at night, of one of the men (my mom and we kids were spending the night there). They came in flushed and excited, saying ‘the Black Panthers’ surrounded their tent, screaming from all directions. Then they said, everyone jumped up, threw their stuff in the trucks, left in a hurry. The women who’d been playing cards, burst into laughter around the table. They didn’t believe the men, and teased saying, “Big Hunters”. Yes. Black Jags are seen and heard in the South.

    _I thought this was pretty heartwarming._

    ~ The manipulation of the people of the world, a roll out; the beat goes on.

    @Knobby ~ Seems like the Amish use hand tools, cordless, for projects. Also, my friend in Kansas said her brother in law was constantly annoyed by the Amish men he’d met, and hired on occasion. They’d take out cash and ask him to pick up Old Milwaukee for them next time he’d go to the store. I was astonished! I said, Amish drink beer?! She laughed, and said apparently so, and they really like Old Milwaukee (yuk). lol.

    @Steven B ~ Who wrote, “…It feels strange to have both parents gone now. I am very blessed to have had them in my life for as long as I did. They had made it to just past their 60th wedding anniversary before Mom died.”

    That’s a wonderful legacy dear Steven. I’m sorry for your loss and relate very well to the hole they leave in our lives. When my mother’s mom passed away, my mom said to me, “well, I’m an orphan now”, with tears in her eyes. She didn’t want to live anymore after that, and was gone within a year or so. I tried to talk her into doing what her doctor said she needed, a temporary stay in a facility to help get well, then she could go back to her senior living apartment. She said, “No, that will just prolong it.” I begged her to try, and she just didn’t want to. One thing I did tell her was we have a future and a hope, and we will all see each other again. I know that’s true.

    When my oldest brother was dying, his wife told me Stephen kept telling her his “folks” were there. Later she asked, we don’t believe in ghosts, do we M? I said, that wasn’t ghosts, or hallucination. It was their spirits (who they are) and were apparently given permission to go be with him and help him cross over. Our maternal grandparents, his dad and our mother were there with him for at least a week before he passed on. That gave me comfort to know. And I believe it was what the bible calls ‘great grace’.

    Anyway, glad you got to get the buck for him. That’s a real testimony of your love and heart for your dad.

    Blessings Steven B. _m

    @knobby ~ That’s an awesome recommendation. I wanted to see if there is a link, and I found one regarding the Raymond Moody book you mentioned. Here’s a documentary. I will see if I can find it as well on the documentaries section, on Roku, to save it to my favorites. Be well, Be Blessed.

    Thanks _m

    “Along Comes Mary”

    Every time I think that I’m the only one who’s lonely
    Someone calls on me
    And every now and then I spend my time in rhyme and verse
    And curse those faults in me

    And then along comes Mary
    And does she want to give me kicks, and be my steady chick
    And give me pick of memories
    Or maybe rather gather tales of all the fails and tribulations
    No one ever sees

    When we met I was sure out to lunch
    Now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch

    When vague desire is the fire in the eyes of chicks
    Whose sickness is the games they play
    And when the masquerade is played and neighbor folks make jokes
    As who is most to blame today

    And then along comes Mary
    And does she want to set them free, and let them see reality
    From where she got her name
    And will they struggle much when told that such a tender touch as hers
    Will make them not the same

    When we met I was sure out to lunch
    Now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch

    And when the morning of the warning’s passed, the gassed
    And flaccid kids are flung across the stars
    The psychodramas and the traumas gone
    The songs are left unsung and hung upon the scars

    And then along comes Mary
    And does she want to see the stains, the dead remains of all the pains
    She left the night before
    Or will their waking eyes reflect the lies, and make them
    Realize their urgent cry for sight no more

    When we met I was sure out to lunch
    Now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch
