I Saw a Buffalo TOO

The woman that lives there started staring so I left,,,before she called the cops,,,lol.  This is out W of town about 5 miles in a development.  BB had said he saw one, soooo,,,I screeched to a stop, turned around and went back, to get this pic...

These two are the party tree out there....

I think the tree died years ago,,, this is the turnaround on the bank of the river.  It's regularly patrolled now,,,so not much goes on out there...

If you look real close, you can see the little black ducks,,about 50 or so.  This was back in town just above the dam.
Don't know of anything going on around here today, but maybe later.  I'm tired and already need a nap.
  About 9pm I heard on the scanner, an ambulance called out to J's gf's house,,,FOR HIM!  I just turned my movie off and took off out there.  He had kinda collapsed on the floor and she couldn't get him up, and had called my bro B,,who in turn called his son, and J's dad.  He was taken to the hospital, and checked out.  Sad to say,, his alcohol level was off the charts.  You take exhaustion, pills, and beer,,that's what happens.  He has kept telling me that that Natural Lite was like water,,,,BS!!!  It has the same alcohol content as any other lite beer,,,4.2% or thereabout.  He told the Doc up there, he would never drink another one.  I've seen him quit pain pills cold turkey, so i'm praying he does this too.  Haven't talked to him today, hoping he was sleeping.  His gf said she would go with him to AA too.  She also needs to. 
Well, guess it's time to say have a very HAPPY CHRISTMAS...
 and,,,HAGD too.


  1. Hope your son and his girl friend get sober and stay that way. I have been for almost 23 years.

    1. I thot I was an alcoholic, but one day I just could NOT get one down. That was the end of it for me. Tried to drink one at Bs one time,,almost couldn't walk,,hahahaha,,he said he almost
      needed to drive me home! He sounds good today, just talked to him.

  2. As I was reading I thought he had re-injured his back, glad that was not the case. You are right Natural Light has the same alcohol content as any other beer.

    May you and yours have a very Merry Christmas.

  3. Sorry about your son.
    Wishing you a Happy Holiday.

  4. Wow, what a fright that must have given you! Do hope your son & gf get on the straight and narrow. Merry Christmas.

    1. Yes, it was a horrible fright til I got out there, not knowing what was going on. They both looked for an AA meeting yesterday but didn't find one, so we looked online and got about 7 different times, etc. They both are going to do this.
