Smoke In Your Eyes

With fires comes the smoke and haze.  Forest firs and range fires unleash clouds of smoke that cover miles and miles of the sky.  If it is big enough fire the smoke will circle the globe.  The smoke is irritating and causes respiratory problems for a few. 

The smoky haze to make for some spectacular sunsets and sunrises and the moon also if it is in the right place in the sky.  A crimson, orange, rose orb hangs on the horizon.


The effects can be spectacular and it can be damming.

With the forest fires and wild fires I have not heard of “Greenies” volunteering to go out and help fight these fires.  Yet they sure love to complain about the carbon being released into the atmosphere.

Makes me stop and wonder, wildfires have been around for centuries and they would burn unabated.  Putting out wildfires a century ago was not a priority.  They would burn till they ran out of fuel or rain/snowfall quenched the flames.

These are big fires but compared to the wildfires of over a century ago they are minuscule.  Wonder how much carbon those fires that burned for months were putting out.

The global warming people do not mention things like this.  they have become arrogant to the point that they just dismiss facts and go on their way.  Even when they are caught in a blatant lie, the greenies go on crying wolf.

So my question….. Is man so stupid he can not take care of himself if there are changes?  Will man be so stupid to stay on the beach and be drowned when the ice melts?

The “greenies” make lots of assumptions based on man being stupid or they are the only ones with smarts to solve the problems of the world climate change.

There are so many un answered points and such a geological record pointing other directions.

Oh…… The “greenies” tend to be Darwinian's.  Therefore man will evolve around all of the global warming, if they really accept the “Theory of Evolution.”  <Man can not be a god and be an evolutionist at the same time… look at the conflict.

There are so many holes that their statements look like a strainer.

Go to High School Science and read about Photosynthesis.


Grab the camera and catch some shots of the sun through the haze, natural or otherwise.

Broken Darkness


Amber slices on the far wall.  The streetlight has found an opening between the curtain and the wall, dimly marking a slice on far wall.  Reminding that there is darkness beyond the walls.

 Sun has set, evening has closed the day, far side lies the warmth of Old Sol.   Amber flickers on the wall fade to gray dimness.  The golden orb is returning.  No longer is the far wall marked by street lamp.  Dull gray slices over the wall.  Dogs whine n scratch.  Morning routine is beginning.

New beginnings as darkness retreats, slashed by the golden orb.  Door opens, dogs scurry out, pausing to check the scents from the night.  clouds envelope the horizon, caressing the green grasses, brown earth.  Jewels of dew glisten on the branches as clouds swirl through the branches.

Gray sky blocks the light of day, a still lamp travels over the land, not yet is the darkness broken.  New day beckons.



Breezes flow on, marching to their silent drummer.  Whistling through time immemorial, marking steps unseen, carving monuments, changing all leaving nothing different.

With new day I usher forth another mark leaving behind that which is gone.  Looking to that which is there, always right there.

Coffee in hand, settle into chair, gaze out window at the grayness swirling about.  Little dogs curled up in corner.


May your weekend be a blessed and peaceful.

Random Quinks

Thoughts from here and there or whatever happened to fall out of the noggin n gray matter.

The fires in Arizona and New Mexico are sharing their smoke with us.  In the mornings the breeze is from the north and it is kind of clear.  As the sun rolls over the wind rolls around to the SW and here comes the smoky haze.

Last night there were pretty good whiffs of burning wood.  As the night settles down the wind calms.  In the morning it is kind of clear.  The haze makes for some interesting sun spots. 

Get lots of complaints from people with respiratory problems, self included.  The smoke effects my allergies and sinus.  I would of not been a good fighter of fires.

Living in the country is a life many dream of but few do.  There is a different lifestyle.  Stores are not close by and medical is further, neighbors are not down the block and nature is the at the step.




this farm house is fairly well isolated,  couple miles to the nearest neighbor.  It can be lonely at times out in the outback of the prairie.  Here life has a pace of nature.  the seasons change and life changes. 

Civilization is creeping in the country life.    the latest gadgets in the kitchen, monster tractor in the field, slick new pick up to chase the cows and giant windmills.



What had once been a far ranging vista is now becoming cluttered with giant three handed machines, 

The landscape is changing yet this same area is also dotted with missile silos.  The giant three handed monsters will be well protected in case of invasion by ET’s relatives.




Ya know what I would like to see….. Congress go back to two sessions, each one 90 days or less, per year.  the end of the session…. every one go home, no more new laws, no more gabbing about nuttin and maybe some peace for the home folks.
