When the Going Gets Tough

 

We have all kinds of sayings to ward off all kinds of issues, mostly with the intention of bypassing, minimizing, and moving on.  Shit happens, right?  Don’t let the bastards get ya down, eh?  There’s always a silver lining.  Don’t sweat the small stuff. The sun will come out tomorrow.  Look at the bright side.  Don’t cry over spilled milk.  Buck up, buttercup!

The falling trees missed the roses, and the deck and house, and all the critters, and me, PRAISE BE!

I know, I know, I’ve heard it all and I’ve probably said half of it myself.   Really though, when someone’s truly feeling down, no one wants to hear another ‘pick yourself up by your bootstraps’ slogan.  A friend to cry in your tea or beer with would be loads more helpful, but sometimes that doesn’t help either.

Thanks to more experienced friends at Melody Acres Ranch the overturned nuc has been righted and it’s doing just swell.

I count my blessings, really, I do.  I’m very good at that.

It’s just that, sometimes, nothing helps, at least not right away.  Sometimes there’s a ‘something’s gotta give’ feeling that lodges itself for a while after a big, bad event, even if everything mostly turning out fine in the end.

The triumphs still feel too short-lived and the setbacks too many.

I remember to remember my favorite things, but the joy in them seems less renewing. This in itself is solemnifying.

Visitors are welcome, yet distracting.

I know nature is resilient and life goes on.  The very morning after the ‘tornado,’ as I was assessing the damages, the birds were chirping, the critters begging for their meals, and Handy Hubby headed back home from work out-of-state to get us back into gear.

Still, despite my usual mood-shifting tricks, my gears still feel a bit stuck.

The snake getting fat on our eggs in the coop, a rabbit devouring the garden.

Oh, just let them be, I think, which is not really like me.

Sometimes that’s just the way it is.
And, this too shall pass.

Aunt Bee: Of course she’s going to be paranoid about the weather, she’s been through 3 huge weather disasters!

Uncle Norm: They do just seem to follow her, don’t they, weird, huh.

Cousin Donna: She’s obsessed with the weather, so she attracts weather chaos to her, that happens, scientific fact.

Cousin David: Nonsense, what kind of thing to say is that, if she were dead now that be her fault then too with that brand of pseudo-logic?

Sister Susie: She truly believes it’s all being controlled, for real!  It could be post-traumatic stress.

Brother Tom: She thinks they are specifically targeting people and places!  It’s insane!

Mother: So does she think she’s being targeted?  This is truly insane.

Sister Susie: No Mom, not her personally, ALL of us.

Mother:  All of us?  I don’t understand.  What does that mean?

Sister Susie:  She thinks we are at war, Mom, right under our noses and without our awareness.

Mother:  Oh my, that must be post-traumatic stress.

Weeping Mary: A Tale of Deceit

The most famous place in East Texas to be demolished in the spring of weather chaos in our region is Caddo Mounds, also known as the George C. Davis site, a state historic site, at the intersection of Texas Highway 21 and U.S Route 69.  Said to be Native American burial, ceremonial and residential mounds of the Caddoean Mississippi culture, it is a major archaeological discovery with what was once a popular museum and ‘living history’ gathering place for community and well beyond.

The date was 4/13/2019 during a Caddo cultural festival in the middle of the afternoon.  There was one death and many injured taken to hospital by helicopter and bus.

The location is not Alto, as all sources report, it is Weeping Mary, population fewer than 50 people.  The original story of the town’s founding is one of deceit, hardly uncommon, and I expect at play in this more recent sad story somewhere as well.

It goes the town was founded by freedmen after the Civil War.  It ended up in the hands of a former slave named Mary, who needed to sell but did not want to sell to a white man.  So the white man hired a black man to buy it for him, and when Mary discovered this she was left eternally weeping.

Weather Disasters (Take III)

Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, August 2005.

Hurricane Ike, Galveston, September 2008

“Tornado”? Unnamed, undocumented by local news, Rural East Texas April 2019
Another ‘severe storm’ expected tonight.  A month of ‘tornadoes’ through our region, which we chose precisely because it was: ‘North of hurricane zone and south of tornado alley’.  Not anymore.

I’m still at a loss for words. But don’t worry, not for long.  Let’s let the photos speak for themselves, for now.  East Texas is being weather bombed, while the local news sugar coats and bypasses. Consider me PISSED OFF.

No deaths, but considerable fear, chaos, lies and destruction.  Just what the perfect non-lethal globalist warfare mongers strive for the most.

“Borderline criminality” the article states, I’d say that’s very generous.  Absolutely egregious lies and manipulation that continues for decades on a docile and completely misinformed population.  What kind of society are we living in?  I’m appalled!
