Yeah, right...what's up with that? He damned sure knew she wasn't going to get better. You would think he'd have had the decency to formalize the relationship before she passed.

Now...now...Snargle. As you know, they've had an on again, off again, relationship.

Bawbwah Wawa flew out to Cali last Wednesday to talk to Ryan and some of Farrah's close friends.

In an interveiw to be aired tomorrow on 20/20, Ryan, with tears in his eyes, says that they'll be married soon.

GRRRRRRRR. not only am I in an enforced, prone position, with elevated leg, (No, the right one), my glasses's frame just collapsed. Anyone who needs Ye Olde Moderne Opticks as much as I can sympathize, I am sure. And I can't even travel to Ye Olde Optometrick Provider for a replacement pair. (they demand you there in person). I may simply get the script, and fax it to someone else for a pair, any pair as an emergency.

talk about frustration. Especially since everything I can do relies on das eyes.

That's weird that the eye doc can't simply refill your old rx without you being present.

Me thinks he wants some more money from you.

A couple of things:

A terrific picture of Bighorn (as it looks now.) I remember seeing it in high school and thinking, "Well, Custer clearly wasn't trying to avoid being seen!" The article is about the arms available to each side, and a theory that the army lost because they were, perhaps, outgunned. But I'm providing the link primarily for the photo.

The second is for those in need of an "awwww" change: baby bat rescue Down Under.

We've had our 45 minutes of spring and have heat warnings all week - temps 90+ and dewpoint 70+. I love the Midwest.

lovely picture. intentionally bypassed it on our family vacation out west a few years back. did stop at wounded knee where 300 Americans were gunned down by the Army after surrendering their weapons. no such monument to those who died there.

not to mention that this monument to Custer's arrogant stupidity sits in the middle of an Indian reservation but is administered from spin city, DC

I'll probably have The Burning Bed lull me to sleep tonight. Okay. I admit it. I have peculiar taste in bedtime stories.

Logan, once on the spot I clearly felt that while the stones were monuments to fallen soldiers, the landscape itself was a much larger monument - to the stupidity of the "Indian Wars" and to one of the few victories the Native Americans won.

It is beautiful and peaceful and looks very much as it must have then. It's also one of the very few places where the American Army admitted defeat (not like they had a choice...) I don't remember the park buildings or center at all; I do remember the headstones and the vastness of the high plains.

I just don't think there's any way that land could be a monument to Custer's poor judgment. If anything, it highlights it. "He thought he could do what? Where? You're joking..."
