If ya haven't met my Mom at a Tiki event, if you ever see her, take the opportunity to talk her up, she is quite a character, just turned 92. All the Sacramento Ohana know her cause she comes to visit me every year a couple of times and I usually throw a party when she is here, she has also been to Oasis a couple of times with me. Still lives by herself out in the mountains in Lakeside, Ca on 10 acres, big ranch house, swimming pool, and drives an SUV. She is only about 5 feet tall, but don't let the white hair, make-up, jewelry and her snappy outfits fool ya...she is lethal.

Last year she walks in her big bathroom that has a sliding glass door onto the pool covered by a floor length curtain. She sees the curtain moving and looks down to see a rattle snake getting ready to coil up. Most of us would have closed the snake in the bathroom and called someone over to kill it, but not my Mom...she closes the door with her and the snake facing off in the bathroom cause she doesn't want it to get in the rest of the house and not be able to find it. The snake is hissing at her, so she is looking around to try to think of something to kill it with...lipstick, hair spray...no...she grabs the toilet brush and as it strikes at her she beats it to death. She put it in a jar and took it to the local herpetologist who says it was a diamond back rattler. It was about 2 feet long.

Don't let her get near you with a toilet brush or you can kiss your arse goodbye.

Wow, reading your description made me think of Choctaw Bingo by James McMurtry. She sounds like she could fit right into that song.

While most of the country has been plagued by crappy weather South Florida has been fantastic. To celebrate many of my friends and I were getting the families together for a day at the beach. Sunny in the 80s with a slight breeze, Saturday was the perfect day to enjoy the warm waters and good friends. Little did we realize that it was Man-O-War breeding season...



We cancelled the day at the beach.

I wonder how they congregate, if they have no propulsion/swimming abilities.

"zooids, attached to each other, incapable of independent survival, float is above the water, acting as a sail" Sounds like scy fy to me. Crazy wild life.

Driving up to my home the other day 3 or 4 pigeons take off at high speed from my neighbors roof. Right behind, a hawk, reaches out with claws and a big fluff of feathers floats away. Right now one pigeon has a nekked butt. It would have been so cool if the hawk had nailed it mid-air. Mother nature never stops amazin.'

I finally found out what has been taking 5 pound craps on my car!



A huge owl has been roosting on the wire over my car. It's a crappy picture, somewhat appropriate for such a crappy bird. I console myself with the hope that he will eat the gopher who gnawed my papaya tree off at the ground.

Squid send this picture to GROG a couple of days ago. Seems they've had some visitors at the house of Sabu where Squid resides.

I agree Unga,

but I would be afraid to use the restroom in the House of Sabu.
