Talking birds…

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 06-01-2012


Did you read that down around Sidney, Australia, parrots that can speak human words and phrases have been returned to the wilds or have escaped to the wilds and are teaching the wild parrots how to talk?….Wouldn’t that be weird to hear several of them speaking….A feller could be strolling out through with woods and hear, “want a cracker?” or “what’s up mate?” or maybe, “stick’um up!”…well, the last one may be far out, but it could happen…Anyway, they say it is really taking place and folks are amazed that the trained speaking birds are teaching other birds to talk…..I guess that proves, “birds of a feather stick together”….Well, it kind’a does….

Busy, Busy…No time for writing

You remember that I told you no.2 son bought a house….Well, no. 2 grand daughter bought a house and a bunch of painting has been required. Old grand pappy can paint, er, make a mess on the walls and call it painting anyway…But they have been keeping me busy…..Sweetie still needs me time to time, so I have been doing everything ‘cept writing. I’ll think on some thing while the colors keep changing on the walls….How about how our soul’s and life need repainting ever so often….We need to renew or repaint the old heart, refresh it in the Holy Spirit, come to terms with an aging body…all that stuff…Ok, I will think on it a good bit and let you know…Later…

Happy New Year

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 02-01-2012


Oops,  sorry, I went to bed early and did not do the Happy New Year post. We all hope the economy will improve in 2012. Surely it will. Spending will be up since it is an election year. The T V stations will make a fortune. You and I may not fair quite so well, but all in all I think we gonna be ok. Let’s all keep thinking that, ok? Just don’t think about our national debt…..Maybe it will go away when the next congress gets together and goes to work???????Well, it could happen…Happy New Year folks…Remember, the problems of this day are sufficent….Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is in God’s hands…We’ll be ok….

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 31-12-2011


At Bosque del Apache NWR the bird counter went to work (on Dec  29, 2011) screaming “stand still you varmints”….Nah, he probably doesn’t do that…Does he take a picture and go back to the office, with a hot cup of coffee and count them in the photo?….nah, he probably has some scientific means to count…..anyway…Here goes…ducks, 77,606…Canada Geese, 172….Light Geese, 20,000…Sandhill cranes, 10,515….Bald and Golden Eagles, 13 (I might could have counted them), American Coot, 762, Marsh and water Birds, 6…Hawks and owls, 43….One rehabilitated peregrine falcon was recently released on the refuge….wanna see this list for yourself?….check out http://friendsofthebosque.org/Friendsindex.html  Nice huh?…Pete Hester

Getting Older

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 29-12-2011


No. 2 son has just purchased a house…nice place but painting has been required….Painting just ain’t as easy as it used to be, is it? I was assigned the pantry yesterday….No. 2 son and no. 3 grandson would not let me get on the ladder so grandson did up high and I did mid-heights down, including underneath the lower shelf. You know, its a lot harder to get down than it used to be also and it is dang sure harder to get back up…….. At some point in time I think one begans to feel worthless….Well, I am not there yet, but close. I got home pretty early yesterday and Sweetie asked why I was home so early…I told her they laid me off…She laughed but we ran out of paint, having just enough for baseboards…And as shaky as I am they surely don’t want me doing baseboards…..One thing happened day before yesterday, No. 2 was coming down the ladder from cutting in his 12 foot ceilings and had placed the 5 gallon paint bucket too close to the ladder. Yeah, he did…he stepped in the paint bucket with his no. 12 shoe, then he grabbed the ladder to pull himself out of the bucket, pulling the ladder over on top of him, nearly, except no. 3 grandson caught it…No. 2 ended up on his back in the middle of the floor in  a pool of white paint on the carpet, surrounded by No. 3 gs and me….We were not laughing then as cleaning up that mess was the main thing….However, yesterday when we recounted the incident, we all had a good laugh over it. All is well that end well, the carpet cleaned up ok, the paint job looks great and no. 2’s “white” boot is now brown again…… Maybe I ain’t the only one getting older, huh son?…

Bad Bill Maher….

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 28-12-2011


If it is storming around Bill Maher, I would not stand close to him….What a terrible, uneducated, unchristian thing to say…He must be some weird religion or something….Come to think of it, he is probably a Maherite….Believeing only in himself…I hope he will one day seek forgiveness….If not, Satin, Hilter and Bill will be having quite the time in the hereafter…. I’m assuming Hilter did not seek forgiveness, I am not sure about that…..Anyway, Mr. Maher, you are doing pretty good here on earth, but that will last only another 40 or 50 years or so, then what?….You don’t have a clue, do you?…..You might should Tebow on it some…..Pete Hester

Albuquerque Hole…..

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 23-12-2011


That’s right, that’s what KRQE weatherman called it.  The canyon winds out of the east whipping through the canyon coming into Albuquerque is keeping the snow out of Albuquerque. Radar shows the weather all around Albuquerque but the city proper, no cloud cover, no snow, no rain, blows it all around us. Out here on the west mesa we have a little better chance than Albuqauerque proper to get some snow, but not much. That is strange, huh? It”s ok, just strange. I’ll just leave the old snow shovel hanging in the garage. Back to that east wind for a second, wow, the chill factor is “way on down yonder”. (Excuse me for a second.)…. Thank you Lord, for this good warm house and a good supply of natural gas and electricity and enough money to pay for those items….Now, where was I…Oh, yeah, it is supposed to be bad tomorrow also and the KRQE weatherman says that tomorrow the Albuquerque Hole may go away, soooo, then I’ll bring out the snow shovel…..That’s the way the flakes fall I guess…..
