Home Among the Trees

Here’s a ‘goody’ that may interest a number :  type in (search)  WATERBOXX  (2 Xs).  Rather fascinating Grow Plants / TREES “way”.
Not only that, but Side Bar related info a WORTHY look too.
One on Homes from Living Trees.  Something I’ve done in the ’60s.  Still there as far as I know.  Made from growing bent willows.  Made it for Christy as her own ‘private cabin In The Woods’.
Even given thought to doing “ditto” on our safe land…using very tall White Birch trees in a grove there.

Anyway, check these places out if you’re interested.

Remember, Willows and willow-related trees (Birch being one) means : SURFACE WATER.

IE ‘ SHALLOW WELL’ WATER!  Aho?  Re

Fishers of Fun

Got a ‘comment’.  The sender telling a bit on his childhood days.  A fun read.  He mentioned KITE FLYING….now THERE’S something I know of!
I belong to the Kite Flyers Association.  Got ALOT of ‘em.  “Trains” (several on one line) / Controlled / Regular / Etc.

Sky and grandma like to go out in spring’s breeze and fly ‘em.  Seems there’s no age limit to the joy of “just dinging around in the breeze” with ‘em.

Some daring souls use ‘em to do some fantastic “shots” using a camera….HIGH UP shots of the “Below and All Around”.  See for yourself…visit KITE PHOTOGRAPHY on internet search.  Even tell how to rig up your camera.  COOL! (Some go ‘house-to-house’ and people pay ‘em for pics of their land / place “from Above”).

My VERY FAVORITE is KITE FISHING!  Gotta teach Sky this one yet.
I’ve used a tiny kite to “slide” my lure down the ‘wind shoot’ of the Yakima river…after trout along too bushy areas to fish from immediate shore.  VERY Effective!  Used this to go almost a 4th of a mile away shore on ponds nearby.  Flew to the other side, released my rigged hook, and slowly troll back.  No need for a boat.  EQUALLY Successful!
To get the kite past YOUR shoreline can be a hassle….so I use 2 poles.  One for kite (and leave That up)…#2 for fishing.  This way I don’t have to constantly try to launch the kite…just pull Kite Line in to rehook (enough string beyond that to keep the kite still up).

Another way of fishing is By FAR my most enjoyable way :  Face Mask / Snorkel / Fins / Innertube with bait line and Fish “Keep” line tied to me….and LAMINATED Fishing License….CARRIED WITH ME (This has saved me TWICE from ‘illegal’ fishing).
Swim out, look below for the fish AND SIZE you want….lower your OLD rod (and OLD Reel), baited, to the fish.  Tease ‘em / Anger ‘em…and WHAM…”FISH ON!”   Really LARGE(er) ones CAN GIVE YOU A “Nantookit” Sleigh Ride!
When I do this type fishing, I’ve YET to come back “skunked” and ALWAYS WITH MY FULL LIMIT! (Much to the anger of jealous others, fishing)
Don’t forget to put a DIVER’S Flag on your tube if in a lake with boats about.  Aho?

I’ve done unusual things in my life.  If its not dangerous and looks like fun and looks like I’m capable of trying things out…I GIVE IT A GO!

Hope this “whets” some appetites.  Boys / Girls / Moms / Dads or Grandparents : GO HAVE SOME FUN!

Life is Too SHORT to be just filled with “worries”.  Aho?     Re

Message to a Sister

Hi sister ;  tho Im unable to receive ANY Emails, i can still SEND.
Hope u had a realy good Xmas.  And that uve FINILY been able to try out ur Snowshoes!

Here, pleanty of snow…somewher over 4 feet.

Snowmobils used as safe transpertation (illegely).  My shoes in storage n snowed in.
We drive r 4wd rigs over the parking / driveway area n pack it down to get in / out.  Works fine.
Even with rds cleard by Country trucks (in time), its still hard to see…”white Outs” at certin area.  4wd driveing only, n SUCKS gas! 4 trips to town n the PU has only enough gas to GET gas. Over $70.00 to fill each time. 2 1/2 fillings a wk. on mine n 1 1/2 fillings on Ms car.  LOTS of Money just to get about.  Aho? Our earning streached to the exstrame limit…n Elect. bill due any time now. Then too, Land Taxes.

The 3 doomes r looking “good” right now.  (  :   one undamaged, otker 2 still quit useabel, tho bent in in places with the snow + ice.

Yesterday i had mt eldest grandson circel each dome with his snowmobile (a # of times).  I can now (?) get out to them n get at least Some snow off. (Mite, today).  A real tireing hassel geting to them other-wise. (Im not geting any younger). (  :

As u know, life is an Adventure! Can be FUN….or a Problem.  Its all as one looks at it Ive found.
“Problems” just there to help u overcome.  Usaly with a VERY Simple salution.

I live in “2 worlds”….SALUITION “worlds”.  This house (and ALL it takes for its constent up-keep), and the “World” of SIMPLCITY.  The last, FAR cheaper!
Admittiably, less “Comfortabel” tho.  Little rm. for exspensive “add ons”.  This makes “Small” rather “Cabin Feaver(ish)”.  U and about 4 others) have learned to overcome alot of that by going out and gardening n “hunting”.  Not as easy when one has 3 OTHERS…and so many PETS, tho.  U have another advantage as well ; Shorter trips.  Here a “short” trip is 8 1/2 miles (to Skys school).  10 1/2 to one town n 16 1/2 to another.  ALL are on some ruff hills.  WIND allways, on way back.  Bikes not feasabel (ok if uve the time to do so tho).  When liveing far  closer to town, n i used the bike, it took me 40 minits to n hr. to get to town….and ALWAYS at about 3 HOURS to get back (wind).  Never a pleasent doing.  Today Im ALOT older n these hills ALONE can “kill” me.
Frankly, I prefer useing one of our Foot Scooters.  Takes even longer, but FAR MORE relaxeing.

Ive a small Back Pack on the handel bars of my main one, and carry a biger one on my back.  Good enough for grocery runs.
My bike has so many bags they act as “STOP Sails” when rideing home. REAL Work!  (To the point Ive often wanted to camp out overnite and doing a 2 DAYER on each trip)! (Searisly).

Car is best, but gas….n UPKEEP….UGH!

Cant “car pool” easily. Most in our area ‘stock up” n make far less trips.  We’ve not the rm. nore enough money to do so.  Tho I call others to tell “Im headed to town. Need anything?”….none dos so with us. sigh.

These same people all will be asking US “how do u DO it?” b4 much more time.   Seems no one WANTS till its JUST TOO LATE…then, “Panic”.  And wanting ME to do the work, as well!

I feel like Noah as he built his God Orderd boat!  Musta MADE himself “hard hearted” to be able to hear the pleads and screems for HELP, as he floated away.  Many from those he knew.  FAMILYS.  All pounding on his hull. ALL ; SCOFFERS and NON-HELPERS…..screaming as they cling to anything that would float.
People watching thier own children n loved ones slide away n slowly sink.
Now ALONE and clinging to servive themselves.  For what?

No boat to rest in, no stocked clean water….not enough food…AND NO PLACE TO LAND.
(NA USED to “be ready”…till the “civilized” SAVAGES slowly made them dependednt on THEM).

Now again we ALL “Face the Seas”.  At least you and a few others are gardening and stocking up. Naturely.  NATURE(ly).
Still, u cant feed every “pleader”.  U TOO witll have to become “hard Hearted” i guess. U will be NEEDED, “After”.  THEN, u can HELP.  (Same here).  sigh.    (Least, if WE “make it”).  Aho?

Yup, Im seeing THIS faimily cought between many deccissions.  SIMPLE…or “As Is”.

It looks like only “Dad” will be able to show us (my family) it “AINT GONNA BE “YOUR’ ” WAY”.  M and all here will be FORCED to the SIMPLE Domes…or parked, sleeping, in a car like so MANY r now needing to.
RIPED into a deccession.

At least Ive a “small boat”…n You ur own.

Money Stretcher “Dirt Poor” Toys

Money Stretcher “Dirt Poor” TOYS

Guess I’m still like that. All my life I’ve never had an over abundance of money…And an OVER ABUNDANCE of WANTS.

With a tiny house , mom, dad and 5 kids, dad the “town drunk: and mom over-worked…their never was “fancy stuff” come Christmas. Lucky to have a place to sleep.
Still, KIDS NEED THINGS TO PLAY WITH.

How? NO MONEY!

Well, CREATE your OWN entertainment!

A big box = a FORT / HOUSE / TRAIN

STICKS can become SMALL DOME HOMES when you get to MY age

A Pop Straw = a BLOW GUN…or SPIT BALL “shooter”

Draw or cut from Funny Page Strips “people”, a bent heavy paper “tab” glued at base helps them Stand

PAPER DOLLS = DRAW “Clothing” / cut with TABS to hold /fold to DRESS THEM

Nut Shell boats…with SAILS

Block of thin wood = RUBBER BAND Paddle Wheeler Boats

Hand Puppets Paper Maca’ Marreninetts

And On and ON

ALL MADE BY KIDS!

Paper / Sticks / String / Rubber Bands / Steak Knife serrated knife for saw /
+ IMAGINATION = HOURS OF T O Y S!

Why BUY a toy THAT PLAYS WITH THEMSELVES!? When NATURE / Cheap ‘on hand’ “tools” / and a KID, can BRING TOYS TO LIFE…all on their OWN! ????

WHY ROB your CHILD of the PLEASURE of “I MADE IT!”?

GIVE THEM BACK their BRAIN!

REAL Education – Are Your Kids Getting It?

Getting DAYS of dishes done…then C was called to a SKY Meeting at school (he’s failing)…then to home and dome clearing.

Sky is NOT “failing,” to ME…..has ALL the SCHOOL KNOWLEDGE he needs.  PASSING THE SPIRITUAL THO!!!

I HATE School “teaching”.  Quit when I was 15  (he’ll be that next month).  Can ALWAYS improve via GED, as I…WHEN HE’S READY (as I did).

I’m quite aware my spelling is SUPER BAD…BIG DEAL!  You can READ it…that’s ALL that matters. (Alot is caused by SHAKES and No Going Back Over what I type.  NO TIME!  TOO many to answer DAILY).

WS doing a SUPER Job of repairing before my writings go on the Blog / Etc..  a VOLUNTEER!!! I’m am so THANKFUL FOR WHAT SHE DOES!  HO!

Takes a GIANT load off Heather’s work (book) and YOUR’S.

I want to Home School Sky…his mom and Meachelle (my wife) won’t allow it.  C (daughter) was…and did FANTASTIC!  (Got her GED too).

In today’s world, it WILL BE RARE to GET a JOB!  Even “Fast Foods”.  Still, I understand “proper” schooling.  Why I want to continue on…in HOME Schooling.  Aho?

No, what people NEED to know is HOW TO “CONNECT” / How to LIVE withIN Nature.  THAT will FEED YOU!  Otherwise : WELFARE…and THAT will go “down the tube” too….in time.

Sky know how to build his own abode….fish….some snaring….go “without”.  Things MANY DON’T.  He’s far better ‘prepared’ then ALOT of the ‘Sheeple’ of most of “civilized” man.

How many KIDS do YOU Know who can cook?  Sew?  Etc. ???  LIFE stuff!  WHO THEN IS THE “SMART” ONE”?   re

Doorways to the Soul

Ever hear the saying “The eyes are the doorway to the Soul”?

Well, there’s truth to that.

Via the eyes, one can see immediate Intent.  Anger / Love / Ego / Intimidation / Etc.

Intimidation is a Power Play with police / “Men In Black” / Etc.

Our Government agents are rife with this.

Whenever I see “glasses” I immediately go on the alert.  Automatically don’t Like the person.  Distrust them.

The Blind…the “Casual Wearer” / I can take.  Not those who use these as a psychological weapon. Because that’s what it is.

NO One is “Superior” to me…nor I to Them.

Meet me as an EQUAL, or don’t meet me At ALL !

I WANT TO SEE YOUR SOUL!    re

A “POOR MAN’S HEALING”

As I’ve told, we here are no strangers to being financially poor.  That does NOT mean, tho, we ARE “poor”.

Knowledge and Creator are the key to this family’s RICHNESS!

For instance, our (then 9 yr old) daughter was badly kicked by a horse.  We were without means to take her to a doctor…nor were we on welfare.  What to do?  PRAY!  ASK !

I did so.  “Saw” here fractured lower right leg.

OK…time for the OLD WAYS KNOWLEDGE…..knowledge almost no NA seems to have any more.

No $$ even for ASPIRIN (to help in her pain and swelling).  INNER WILLOW BARK CHEWING!  The REAL Aspirin whiteman has learned to ALMOST duplicate  (CAN’T put the plant’s “Spirit” into their’s).

So did so and had her chew and swallow the spit.

Next : Setting the bone.

Tore my only T-shirt into strips and started “binding” there.  Being on the Thick Side, it could “breathe” next to the skin.  We had a Stretchable “band-aid” and finished with that.

Have no supply of blood to coat all (dries HARD), we had to let it go “as that”.

More bark chewing as her temperature would rise.

Cold water on all now and then.

And plenty of “down” time.

Meanwhile, CONTINUED PRAYER AND THANKSGIVING.  Aho?

Called in The “Doc” Angels for a FAST HEALING.  They did so.  HO!

After a few days, time to be “up and about”….no money for crutches….but : KNOWLEDGE.  Aho?

Went out and cut a small green tree…with under-arm “branch”.  Cut just shorter then under-arm height.  Pressed AGAINST the arm pit pinches a vital blood vein…..causing EXTREME Danger to the BRAIN.

JUST “RIGHT” and worked like a charm.

She was able to go back to school “dressed” in this manner.

After only about 3 + wks, was able to stand / walk without her NATURE Crutch.

She was a “living” testimony to ALL at school AND THE SMALL COMMUNITY.

Finally healed completely.  PTL!

ALL our ancestors once know these “How-Tos”….yes, even those Not N.A.

Time to learn, friends.       MAY save MANY, in time.   Aho?  GB   re

Hope In the Numbers

Ok, folks….in 8 months (might be a bit more), I’ve now had a bit over One Hundred Thousand “hits” on this blog.  Cut that by perhaps 2/3rds and thus 1/3 “new readers”.  Still, not bad I feel.

This shows me there is interest….hopefully for Spiritual Growth “want”.

I don’t give “junk” when I share.  Teach?  Chew Out?  You bet!  Life has alot of LIFE.  Aho?

So, to you…new or returns, I WISH YOU A GOOD LIFE and a MERRY CHRISTMAS!    re AND “mine”.

Training Our Children to KILL

VIDEO GAMES!    The “KILL TO WIN” ones.  Swords / Cars / Guns……Swish Swish….Clank Clank…..Rat-tat-Tat.

Grenades…..Fire Bombs.  YOU NAME IT!  Even Street Fight STOMPINGS.

FUN!

You die?  “DARN!  Now to figure out how NOT to ‘next time’  (press a button and ‘give it a go’).

THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR LIVING ROOMS AND BEDROOMS ACROSS the “Modern” WORLD.   8 – 9 yr. olds / Teens / and even young ADULTS!

“Cool GAME!”

Then to the REAL thing.  REAL “License to Kill”….OUR MODERN MILITARIES!

Ask our modern Vets…’Nam, on.

Don’t get me wrong….I’m not against video games….to a POINT.

They help INSTANT REACTIONS….EYE COORDINATION….INSTANT “Safe places” / Etc.

A GOOD thing.

I see the TODAY’S need of Military as well….AT HOME Military.

There is a Fine Line in these games….AND BEING CROSSED OVER TO THE  “GORE” “GLORY”, by FAR!

They are not fun anymore.  Not MENTAL “Oneness” fun, anyway.

WE ARE LETTING OUR KIDS PREPARE TO……..DIE! ….PLAYING a REAL “game”.  …and YOU might end up in THEIR CROSSHAIRS!        re

Just Do It

Friends, it is one thing to Read….this at least Helps.  Quite another to EXPERIENCE.  IE : Practice.

IE : TEST.
As long as it hurt none, as long as it’s morally right….never JUST read….go out and DO IT.    re
