Random Thoughts 6-27-2010

We have had very hot weather here in Northern Virginia the past few weeks.  It keeps me from spending much time outdoors, but at least I eat better.  In the heat I don’t want hot foods, just salads and other cold foods.

The reaction of both humans and animals to something unexpected is interesting to watch.  One day recently, when I was walking my dogs in the woods, Cocoa startled a snake that went slithering off  toward a tree and into a hole under the tree.  The natural instinct was for Cocoa to chase this animal running from him, but he had never seen a snake before and it’s weird shape and movements threw him and he wasn’t sure what to do.  He followed the snake, but kept his distance, even after it went into the hole.

I choose love, joy and freedom, open my heart and allow wonderful things to flow into my life.


When a women in Florida was arrested for robbing a bank, she said that she had not planned to rob a bank.  It was “just impulse. I think everyone should have a list of things they want to do before they (die).”   ( I would have never thought to put robbery, rape or murder on my bucket list.)

A guy in Kentucky stole a utility trailer and put it up for sale on Craigs list.  The owner saw the ad, called the number and made an appointment to inspect the vehicle.  When he recognized distinct markings on the trailer that the thief didn’t have enough sense to remove, he called the police.  When police arrived, the thief tried to defend himself by claiming he didn’t run the ad.  The cops then called the number listed in the ad and the cell phone in the thief’s pocket started ringing.

The police didn’t bother to arrest one thief caught trying to siphon gas from a motor home.  The owner of the motor home found the young thief near the motor home vomiting in the grass.  It seems the thief had stuck his siphoning hose in the wrong opening and sucked out a mouthful of raw sewage.  The police figured he had suffered enough, and let him go.
