SCORPIONS

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate THE FROG and the SCORPION and the fox as they cross the river. IT IS IN MY NATURE- says the SCORPION. IT IS MY NATURE. A SCORPION IS INDEED A SCORPION. Thanks for the Ride but sting you I must !

    

We keep an eye on the scorpion and the serpent, but we do not watch out for the millipede. Sicilian

   That’s the problem with them fables, they’re putting animals together that wouldn’t meet. I don’t know where a scorpion is knockin’ around with a frog.”
-Podcast Series 3, Episode Two

Butch glared balefully across the saloon at Tex, who had been stone dead since the scorpion he had unwittingly sat on had bitten him on the butt some half an hour or so ago, little suspecting that this was going to be his toughest staring contest since the one against old Glass-eyed Juan, during the great sand-storm of ‘42, at the height of the Arizona conjunctivitis epidemic.

“God did not give wings to scorpions.” 

If you are bitten by a scorpion in a dream, you will conquer your problems.

    

DAILY PROVERBS FROM AFRICA 

Those who go to examine the rainwater puddle will meet scorpions (around it).
(You’ll get into trouble if you’re too inquisitive.)

DARK AND STORMY NIGHT WITH ALMOST FULL MOON

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate the completion of this birthday on a dark and stormy night with the almost full moon. The Cottage Doors are closed. There is a Palmer spider out the back wanting to come in out of the cold and wind. The Star Wagon ain’t going no place till the driveway dries out a little. The Girls are making Phone calls to say Happy Birthday and Plan visits in May. They consider the pulse of the life lived on The Hill and the passing of the years. Some birthdays are MELLOW.

A true man does not need to romance a different girl every night, a true man romances the same girl for the rest of her life.

Someday I would like to
stand on the moon, look
down through a quarter of a
million miles of space and
say, “There certainly is a
beautiful earth out tonight.”
– Lt. Col. William H. Rankin, American author

An autumn night… don’t think your life, didn’t matter.
Basho

Better to sit all night than to go to bed with a dragon.

I pray the gentle hands may guide my feet; I ask for kind commands from
voices sweet; At night a stable warm with scented hay, where, safe from
every harm, I’ll sleep till day.


“If you play with the vultures at night, you can’t soar with the eagles at dawn.”

I love thee – I love thee,

‘Tis all that I can say

It is my vision in the night,

My dreaming in the day.

~Thomas Hood
