Throwing eggs at a public speaker could result in up to one year in prison. (Yeah, I'll bet!!)
In Fort Thomas, KY dogs may not molest cars. (I wonder if the dogs are aware of this law?)
In Owensboro, KY a woman may not buy a hat without her husband's permission. (bet they don't enforce this one!)
It is illegal to go whale fishing. (Yeah, all kinds of whales there!)
If a child burps during church, his parent may be arrested. (Cliff, did you ever get arrested over this one?)
In Omaha a man is not allowed to run around with a shaved chest. (Jerry, take heed!)
Animals are banned from mating publicly within 1500 feet of a tavern, school, or place of worship. (Sounds reasonable to me. Tell the animals!)
Alligators may not be kept in bathtubs. (Jamie Dawn, put your pet back in the swamp where he belongs!)
It is illegal to get a fish drunk. (I sure hope so!)
Driving is not to be done while sleeping. (Duh!)
More than 8 women may not live in a house because that would constitute a brothel. (Maybe. Maybe not.)
You can't shoot any game other than whales from a moving vehicle. (What is it with whales?)
You can go to http://www.dumblaws.com to read these laws, if you like, and then click on your state.
We are having a blast of colder air. I wonder how many calories you burn a day from shivering? It's really not that cold but when it's been warm and then it drops quite a bit like that it just seems so much colder than it is.
Election day draws nearer and remember folks:
Politicians and diapers should be changed regularly and for the same reason.

LATE SUNDAY SIGN & MORE
My husband has been, and still is, confused. This is why I did not get my Sunday sign out on Sunday. He wants me to call people on the phone that are dead. There is no convincing him that they are not alive, especially when he says he just saw them and talked with them recently. I expect this will last through the day and hopefully tonight he'll tire himself out and go to sleep, since there was no sleeping last night. Meanwhile.....ARGHHHHH!!!!!!!! Ah, now I feel better!
Now I hope everyone's week is off to a great start!! I'm so enjoying my new kittens Sir Scarlet (since he's a male) and Jamie Dawn. They are just so cute! I love watching them play and they bring me much joy!

PLEASE MAKE WELCOME
Here's Jamie Dawn. Ain't she cute!!!
Here you see Jamie Dawn with her paw around Scarlet. Right after I took this picture Jamie Dawn fell backwards off the porch. It's only about a foot high there so she was fine!!
He is my great nephew and he is a little over a month old. That's his Mom (my niece) with him there. In the second picture where he's smiling I love how you can see her holding his little hands! We had our family reunion last Saturday and this was the first time I had seen him. He slept a lot but she had him grinning when he was awake!! It was great to visit and see everyone and how much the kids had grown.

Have Cake? Beware the Lure. Sunday Sign
Here's a picture of him after he had ate like a pig!! He then laid down and let his right leg hang down between that post and the deck! I'm sure he was VERY happy to be rid of that fishing lure! You can see the place on the side of his jaw where the hooks were, that red torn place. We have seen him daily after this and he seems fine and is eating great.
I would like to go out to the farm where the man lives that takes care of animals, the one that brought the trap. He does this with no financial help and uses his own money. He said right now he has about 30 deer he is caring for. He said the 911 folks know his phone number by heart and call him often when there is an animal that has been injured. He said he has taken fishing lures out of raccoons, ducks, and other animals many times before. I hope to go out there sometime, and of course my neighbor wants to go too, and that will be another blog story!

Ramblings and Sunday Sign
I took this picture last week. This lady is in my Sunday School class. I told her that her feet looked so pretty. She thought I was totally insane to want to take a picture of her feet. But they are pretty, don't you think? You can also see our pretty new red carpet that was just put down at church in the whole auditorium. It's quite bright and matches our pews.
I went back to the apple orchard this week to pick my own apples. I really enjoy that. Those apples are so good. Nothing like you buy at the store. I have no trouble eating an apple a day (usually two or three!) with these apples!
We had frost on the 3rd, so my neighbor obviously though Laya needed a t-shirt on!! It was a bit baggy on her, but cute nonetheless!! She looks a little fierce but is quite sweet and gentle. He normally keeps her inside but lets her out during the day some.

It took three years and more than 60 volunteers from seven states to rid Saltpeter Pit of 200 tons of garbage, which created a 45-foot pile of trash affectionately coined “Mount Trashmore” by local cave explorers. The project began after a research team from Bat Conservation International discovered in 2005 that Saltpeter Pit – named so because it was mined for saltpeter, an ingredient in gunpowder, during the War of 1812 – serves as a hibernation site for a colony of more than 500 Rafinesque’s big-eared bats. Rafinesque’s big-eared bats is a rare species, and the Saltpeter Pit colony is thought to be the fourth-largest colony in the world. The massive cleanup project may have been started because of the bats, but other issues – such as clean water came to light. Pulaski County is well known as an area with extensive cave systems and underground networks, which act like a network of pipes, carrying water without giving it a chance to filter through soil. When it rains and water goes in this cave, it is affecting someone’s drinking water, and they may not even know it, so another reason this clean up was so important. The cave also serves as an important archeological site, because remnants of the mine’s heyday still exist within its three passages, one of which was clogged completely by the trash. Now that the trash is gone, the site will be monitored to ensure that no more dumping occurs.
Here is the after picture! What a difference!! For other participants in Ecological Day, you may go here.
