where is this paradise? do wolves lie down with lambs?

the food chain is different in joisey.

if we put out food for birds or squirrels, we are left with dead offerings of the same by the cats we also feed.

i was just discussing with dw about putting up a bird feeder. she said, "how many dead birds do you want by the back door."

Today our old - I mean old sofa bed (my aunt had purchased it in 1969 and I "inherited" it back in the early 80s)was put out by the curb for the trash pick-up tomorrow. Around 2pm an elderly lady who takes her usual afternoon walk took the throw pillows off the couch. Jimmy happened to be looking out the front window and saw her looking around to see if anyone was watching. Around 3:30 I heard a bunch of kids running and laughing down the hill in front of our house. They all pounced on the couch and then decided to take it with them from where ever it is they came from. Now this sucker is HEAVY!!!It was funny watching the kids first attempt to get the couch up hill in front of the house- they would stop every so often sit down, catch their breath and proceed to carry away their prize. I lost sight of them,going down our side street but, they were having the greatest time and this made me smile and still is!!!!Love and energy, Vicki

In our hometown, it was very common to simply leave something at the curb if you wanted someone to "Take it away, please!" Once, we put a chair out on the curb that just plain had a bad smell to it. We couldn't get rid of the smell - probably one of the kitties did it. So, we put it out. It disappeared very fast. Then we looked down the street. Someone had ridden exactly one block with it and then chucked it back out! Don't blame them. But it eventually disappeared.
