News Flash....couples no longer can have a food fight

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – Authorities said a couple got into a fight using Cheetos. The Bedford County Sheriff's Department said a 40-year-old man and 44-year-old woman became involved in a 'verbal altercation.' Somehow, the orange puffy snacks were used in the assault.

Deputies said they were charged with domestic assault. No one was hurt.

According to the Shelbyville Times-Gazette, both posted bond of $2,500.

I saw this news article on Yahoo News. Frankly I am not surprised as the United States is becoming a police state more and more. A couple months ago an area high school had a food fight and the kids were handcuffed and taken to jail for destruction of property. It's unbelievable how society works these days and these restrictions only will get worse. It's bad enough that nosy neighbors feel they must save the day and feel important, thus call the police, or when school officials must summon a more authoritative figure when a simple punishment of cleaning up a cafeteria would work just fine. Is it no wonder why I cannot stand anyone in society who feels they have to be superior to the people behaving badly? Chances are, these "snitches" are kinky and have more dark secrets than those they are reporting.

It will be interesting to see this world become populated by saints, as it's clearly what society wants...everyone to get along, no arguments, no fun, no games, no laughter, no nothing. Yes, I can see it now..."Welcome to the United States, the most well behaved country in the world"....perhaps someone should then throw in 'boring' too as that is what it will surely become if society keeps up their damn nosy snitching in other peoples business. It's bad enough that children aren't allowed to be children...whats next? Come on, someone from society please tell me. Oh that's right, idiots in society wouldn't lower themselves to read a blog such as this as they would just rather report adults throwing cheetos at each other and of course, that is much more grown up than reading a blog that insults mindless, stupid, stooges from sainthood.

Are peoples lives this boring that they feel they must muzzle into someone else's affairs just to add excitement to their own lives? Apparently, and if that is the case, then they lead a very sad life indeed.

Shed from Hell

Okay, this was a project that my parents needed help with. Come Monday the 15th, I was asked to assist my father in constructing this shed. Well, it turned out that my elderly father, in his so loved way of asking for help, really had no bloody clue how to put it together. This left me wide open and I did the whole thing and the folks were the extra "hold that there", "can you hand me the f****** flashlight?" and so forth.

What made this project hellish, is that it was assembled in where else, China and the ever so smart Chinese FORGOT a whole blipping lot of screws, brackets and of course, not one part measured up correctly. Screw holes were off set, wall panels didn't fit the slots on the floor and talk about a headache. The instructions stated "Simple to build, 2 day construction"...right! It took me 4 days!!! Stupid Chinese and Stupid Americans who employ the Chinese...can you tell I totally am at wits end with the project?

Now I didn't mind the project at all since mom and I, in our way of not getting along, got along pretty well. S she was a trooper while I swore up and down and when parts didn't fit, got the heck out of my way so when I got mad, I MADE parts fit LOL!!! Ah yes, the joys of doing things the Smith way :)

But, as you can tell from the photo (never mind the idiot in blue) the project came together nicely. However, considering it's all plastic, it will take one match to melt an access door for any burglar and one can literally pop the lock off with a screw driver to gain access. But I really cannot complain all too much since the darn thing wont ever rust and there is a wonderful warranty of lifetime involved, but I doubt that will do any good since the company went belly up...but what you gonna do when you're dealing with plastic?

Looking out my back door

Tonight while relaxing, I was watching this doe as it laid down just outside my door near a salt block. When I went to retrieve the camera, she had gotten up and grazed over about 20 feet from the back door. This doe is an interesting girl as she is missing a hoof on her right front, but she handles herself well like she is walking on all 4's. I was considering taking this ole girl out come deer season, but I think I may not have to as apparently she doesn't see herself handicapped, nor hampered. But she does not run when she needs to, instead she hunkers down low and waits for danger to pass. As time goes on, my decision to take her down will rely on a few things such as the winter months and this may play a key roll in her becoming jerky.

It's been nearly 4 days since I've been able to get out into the woods due to rain. I thought it be good to police the 40 acres and just see how many trees have been downed, and how much mud I'll have to contend with on the logging roads. I decided to head through the pines and first check on my mineral block which is located near my food plot, but also in the pines protected from the weather. I got about 180 feet or so from the house and saw these white bulbs sticking up through the ground. Here I thought it was mushrooms, but decided to check it out anyways. To my surprise, this is the first time I have ever come across a wild turkey nest with eggs!!! I ran back to the house and zapped the photo and later learned that turkeys don't cover their eggs during the inoculation period. It will take 26 days for this to happen, though I have no idea how long these particular eggs have been exposed. I would think a predator like a coon would destroy them, but have not found anything detailing this on-line. So, anyone who is a turkey pro, tell me what you know about the hen leaving the eggs like this.
