Trump Tribute

J called me this afternoon, while I was waiting for Dad's prescription, to tell me she had to have Trump euthanized this morning. He had some unknown issue that seemed like colic but wasn't, and he was in a lot of pain. I had not seen him in a while and now I regret it.

Trump let me fly:

photo-heavy back hereCollapse )

I miss him....

for the record....

Why I have gone friends-only:

(Explanation of drama occuring in equestrian and equestriansnark elided.)

It is very, very difficult for me to trust a person. This doesn't make it any easier.

ETA: As of 3 p.m. 11 April 2008 I am not adding any friends to my LJ except for people I have met in person. So stop trying already!

A brief note on Dr. Tiller

No one has probably noticed, but for someone who is expressly (and sometimes expressively) pro-reproductive rights, I've been silent about the murder of Dr. George Tiller.

I've not said anything because others said it better. And I'd be preaching to the choir here. And because, frankly, in case there are any "non choir members" reading this, I gave up having the abortion debate years ago, so don't even try.

I didn't attend the vigil in downtown Boston, either. I bought a bathing suit instead, no disrespect meant, but I am also more or less done with vigils/protests/rallies/whatever. I did a lot when I was younger.

And good for all of you who have stood up in public. Carry on!

bye-bye :(

I seem to have lost buymeaclue from my LJ friendslist. It was over that comment, and my further response, of course. I understood what she was saying; there are parts I agree with.

I will miss her.

On a purely selfish level, I will miss her posts about her horse Tucker, which are all locked, so I can't see them now.

leaving this one unlocked.


I am also on dreamwidth, same user name. I have not (yet) set up cross-posting or anything else.

trapped by a.... turkey???

Ben and I were heading out tonight and I found this guy behind my car in the driveway:

This was one pissed-off turkey! He did NOT want to move. He did NOT want to let us move, either.

I backed the car out of the driveway very slowly, while he, behind us, moved back and forth and even pecked the car a couple of times! He kept up a loud series of fowl curses. I finally got the car into the street, where another car kindly waited for us to *very* slowly get turned in the correct direction. (Actually, I suspect the other driver was dying of the giggles!) Mr. Turkey was last seen crossing to the other side of the street.

(I have a feeling I know why he's pissed off. I've been seeing a hen turkey with two toms in close pursuit, and I think this guy finally lost the fight to Imprezz Teh Gurl. So he's sexually frustrated and taking it out on my car...)
Copy this sentence into your livejournal if you're in a non-same-sex marriage, and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.
