So that's how you prune a cactus. Nothing like a well trimmed cacti.
Be careful Purl...don't prick yourself...sorry, couldn't help it.

Not to beat a dead horse but why did you post here Renrob? This IS Purl's off topic thread, she can post what she wants. Beside...if you really are a " women " you should be happy to have a compatriot here to rep the feminine intellect among all these guys who are for some odd reason drooling to learn all about gardening. LOL

I was gonna go there Bigfoot, but Purl handled it well.

I think many women here resent all the attention Purl gets, but how many women you know, know about stocks, mechanics, gardening, Indian culture, english lit, programming. I have a feeling that isn't a complete list either.
Let's face it, there isn't exactly women like this all over the place.


Now Bigfoot, I'm not sure what you mean by that last remark, I get extremely excited by the thought of a gardening lesson, so much so, that yes, it sometimes does result in drooling.

Doesn't everyone?

Hell, I'm still waiting areund here cause I was hopin to find out what a "women" is.

Reminds me about how mad a certain major state university was when I pointed out that the signs they had installed on all the restrooms in a new building didn't reflect well on their attention to scholarship.

I asked them to explain to me exactly what the words "MENS" and "WOMENS" were. I asked if they were expecting green bipeds from Mars to show up so there would be more than one sort of men and more than one sort of women.

When they announced it was a possessive, they blew their top when I explaimed that it was customary to have an apostrophe included in a possessive, IF you expected to look scholarly.

I think they are still POed.

MagicK is an ok boy although his moniker reads

I am allowing him three strikes. He has two strikes
to date. One more.. time to duck.

Based on conversation, rather obvious you boys
are bored silly. Just one more Home & Gardens
picture, then I will move on to more exciting
topics, bound to make you drool.

Clearing a garden space, moving rocks and boulders,

Now, onward and upward into more exciting topics.

Do you boys know how many hundreds of pictures
I have provided for you?

 -

Rock N Roll Indians!

Of course the band is playing Steppenwolf's
"Born To Be Wild" after all many believe us to
be nothing more than wild savages.

No chain link fence around the band, no broken
beer bottles, no crazy drugged out freaks leaping
off the stage, no Hells Angels guards.

I comment we are all about children, our family.
For an event like this, at a powwow, children
are encouraged to come up and sit right on the
stage, and they do. Quite clear those kids are
totally absorbed by the band.

Yes, he is a tribal chief playing guitar.

American Indians are all about children and
honoring our ancestors. Kids and dignity, very
important to us. Maybe this cultural aspect will
help you to understand why I become so angry when
people bring hatred here, bring dishonor here.

In our culture, when a member dishonors himself,
really dishonors himself, he is banned from our
lands, often for good.

Honor can be exemplified by a custom, not practiced
today but well respected. When an Indian woman loses
her brave, her husband, and she is too old to
fend for herself, she will "walk off" out into
the wilderness to die. None try to save her, none
try to help her. Doing so would be to disrespect
her. She is doing the Good for the tribe. She has
become a burden to the tribe and her last act of
protecting her tribe family, is to sacrifice her
life so she will not be a burden.

This is the type of honor we are taught.

"perky"

Ha! Gravity sucks. Once perky, now I have
bowling balls bouncing off my knees.

However, I am not quite to the stage of life
when I will roll down my nylons around my knees.

Ahhhh...Magick Treats...and I like 'em too.

Have to admit though, I'm clueless...how did I get to two strikes and what on earth could be wrong with drooling over "garden lessons"???

Prefer slobbering?

Most of the boys here are probably too young
to remember old women who roll their nylons
down their knees to help keep them up because
those old women have become so fat, no garter
belt fits them anymore.

A semi-permanent encampment. Note the car in the
background to provide scale. These are not small
tepee, not at all!

You can see black soot on the tepee top near the
car, and the third tepee from your left, no your
other left. Those vents to let out smoke and to
control temperature. Two poles inside are attached
to those flaps for adjustment. A campfire is always
in the center of a tepee, living quarters are
ringed around the outside edge. These tepee are
the equal to our common family home, but can
hold ten to twenty people, quite comfortably.

Like a hornet's nest, make us mad and we come
rumbling out in droves!

A reenactment of traditional lifestyle; reed weaving.

Those will be used later for artwork, very intricate
weaving of patterns and pictures.

This is at a public powwow.

This is a powwow closed to the public; only Indians
are allowed to attend. Look at the audience, all
American Indians.

I can only show a few pictures and only comment
a little bit. Those not of Indian blood are not
allowed to see events like this.

Figure you boys might like to see real Indian women.

Ceremonies are about fertility, child bearing,
children, caring for the tribe, husbands and
other related sacred notions.

You will note a complete absence of highly colorful
feathers and clothing as displayed by male dancers
in my previous pictures.

Indian women are tied very closely to Mother Earth,
we are the life givers, the basic of life. Our
clothing and accessories represent an Earthy touch.

She is honored for something. Her hair bears an
eagle feather which signals she is to be respected,
is an important member of her tribe. At her young
age, maybe an apprentice medicine woman, a learning
shaman, or she is very talented in some activity.

Today, all Indians are honored for activities which
may not be traditional. She could very well be a
public school teacher, a nurse or similar.

It is so hard to believe our early society would
kill peoples like this. Never has made any sense.

I contribute this to a lack of education and a lack
of understanding; xenophobia and lust for land.

Fortunately, today, we have changed our ways.

agreed. but I intend more abstract, more conceptual...the "gestalt" if you will...the preparation, the grace...beauty as a principle

I know, Tex. You are a man of education and awareness.

About the most close event we see in the Anglo
world, maybe church services? Halloween?

Many Asian cultures engage in traditional activities,
like Indians. Certainly a lot of South American
cultures do, but they are of Indian lineage. There
are a lot of cultures around the world who take
tradition very seriously.

Tradition, though, seems lost upon typical Anglo
cultures. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Fourth of July,
those are traditional but events of this type
number so few for Anglos.

Yes, our culture invests a lot of effort into
maintaining tradition. Clothing in those photos
are certainly hand made.

Reminds me of the story, "Shogun" by James Clavell
in which an English sailor becomes absorbed by
traditional Japanese culture, centuries back.

In time, he comes to prefer Japanese culture
rather than his English culture.

Tex, do you have recent articles? I have been
looking all over for your articles. I find titles
but keep receiving,

"The requested article was not found."

Those newspapers I check, your articles date
back too far; no longer available.

Hey ya'll, todays farm and homestead report on land grabing and catfish roping is in..

catfish roping.. heh.. heh.. that is funny.

During my childhood, ornery adults told us stories
about a catfish which eats children.

Grassy Lake borders our farm on the back forty,
probably a good quarter of mile of lakeshore.
Southeast Oklahoma is very wet, very green and
very overgrown, much like an Amazon jungle;
dark and spooky. In some areas, the canopy
overhead is so thick, daylight never seems
to come.

Deadly snakes are everywhere. Cotton Mouth
and Rattlesnakes, mostly, six feet, eight
feet long and big as your arm.

Toss in the world's greatest population of
ticks and chiggers, zillions and zillions,
and Eagletown becomes a place out to kill
you and eat you, every step you take.

We kids are told of this one-hundred pound
catfish, five-hundred pound catfish, half
ton catfish, depending on who is telling the
story and how much White Lightning wets the
story teller's lips.

"Tellin' ya, child, that catfish swims up near
shoreline, down there by Mudline Road, slithers
its stinging whiskers up on shore, then dangles
them over trees to look like vines. One of you
young-ins comes walking along and that century
old catfish wraps one of its whiskers 'round
your neck, gets a good grip so yall can't holler
for help. Right quick, that old catfish commences
stinging you with those whiskers and soon you're
plain stupefied and can't move. Then it drags you
right on into the lake then swallows you whole,
while you are still alive! You best stay away from
that lake, child."

Intent of this story is keep kids away from the
lake so not to fall in and drown.

Any wonder I am crazy after growing up thinking
a huge catfish is out to swallow me whole?

Contrasting this, a true story, we did have

unattended babies.
