Nothing better than having ice cream with dad.

Understanding ANN T

Living here like everywhere outside the US for the most part you meet expats from different places obviously. In the Vallarta area it is primarily Americans and Canadians with those from the north having the edge in numbers.

Canadian acquaintances cannot understand why Native Americans don't get with the program so to speak and integrate into society. It's not easily nor quickly explained and don't know if I even could but throw this in.

I look at this picture from Wounded Knee and to me ANN T covers a great part of it which I identify with in these times in the United States.

In those terms in solidarity with ANN T One Fly respects nothing that comes from the political Right including the religiously insane (Bart Cop term) and the gun people. Specifically that means the human part of that and this guy wants little or nothing to do with those who think like that and associate with those things.

We'll throw in the gringo prick upstairs as well who has taken away my quality of life, the ugly overweight gringos who walk around with alcohol when I have never seen a local do the same. If there is anyone who does NOT greet or respond it'll be those from north of the border. Es cierto!

Just saying.

Gestapo Joe

Like it was going to be someone else? These two are pure evil.

Tree Wells Happen And Again

I think about this and just cringe. The kicker about this for me and it's in the post and story from a day back in '08 is that even if you are with a friend who can help you can still die.

There has been a lot of snow in the high country of Colorado. I believe Da Boat got at least a 100" and understand skiing is fantastic.

I'm really sorry bud!

Death In A Tree Well

It happened again yesterday with a very experienced skier who was also an instructor. A post from almost two years ago describes what this about and just how lethal this situation can be if you screw up. It's that simple and that deadly. Two years ago two people died within 10 ten days of each other. Said it back then and saying it again-this really sucks.

Unfortunate to say the least

This is the second one in ten days. At lunch today talking about the first with a good friend and former ski patroller he related several stories he experienced with skiers who fell into tree wells. Exactly what Bill said a few hours ago happened two hours after we talked. You're alone and go in and it's head first and can't get out you are dead. Even with a partner that may not be enough as that is what happened today. His bud couldn't get him out and he didn't make it. That really sucks.

Public Lands Means They Are Yours Not Anyone Else's

And it's pretty much that simple. People along the way did us an amazing thing in that they left these lands for every American and visitor from wherever they may be from unlimited opportunity to see, explore and experience at their leisure and as much as they want and for little and mostly nothing.

Is it all wonderful - no but it works and one must participate and make their voices heard when it comes to management decision making and it does make a difference.


Anyone who has spent time out and about on these lands has run across Bundy Bastard types who threaten and intimidate people into thinking they are trespassing when of course they are not. A lease for grazing in many of these instances does NOT give ownership rights that allow them to do so.

The rational used by these Bundy Bastards is off the wall. Again it's not the gubmit's property but yours and mine and this time I very much want these people out of and off of what is mine and reprimanded for breaking numbers of laws that we would all be held accountable for.

And make no mistake about it the action taken by these Bundy Bastards is religious in nature - Mormon to be specific. LINK

The Right has it's sights on Public Lands like they do other things involving huge amounts of money they see as exploitable. "Oh there is so much a little won't be missed" or something similar is often heard from Bundy types.

I want these lands protected now and forever and you should as well for many obvious reasons all of which are correct unlike the nonsense thrown about by Bundy Bastard types where ever they may be from.

If you have never been to the West a visit may forever change you. If the election goes badly very quickly the face of the West and your lands will be forever changed in huge negative ways and that is a fact!

Happy New Year

Yup the start of another and may it be good for you and yours. The crazy's out there not so much in these times. Later these times will be discussed as history. And we've been watching to me anyway some real shitty stuff since 2000. I do not see if they are honest these times being described as positive. Plus I think the upcoming election will be the culmination of all the efforts of the Right at last.
The best -OF.

A picture - well because. Taken the same one before and just like it.

This guy was cool to see.

Above Nogalito

Glad to be able to do this. It is not easy, slippery and one can sweat plenty! But it has cooled down and the days have been very pleasant.

I can't capture what it's really like. It's different from canyon lands. What is here though is an anomaly at 18 sec. Very easy to watch more than once. This thing wiggles.

I think it is a rod although Wiki debunks such things.

This Is Already Old

First time I saw this knew these two were going to be the poster terrorists for Mercuns against Muslims.

THERE WAS A PICTURE AND COULDN'T STAND LOOKING AT IT ANYMORE.

Possible Scenario

Having not been so political for a time there are some things that can not slide. I am referring to this. Where you are told to rat out your neighbors for actions you think suspicious.

Caller: ringy dingy
Cops: Cops
Caller: I want to inform you about this guy in the neighborhood who is - different.
Cops: go ahead we need all the intel we can get.
Caller: He lives alone and we see him leaving most mornings early on foot and doesn't come back for a couple hours or more. Sometimes he has a bag on his shoulder. Nobody does that here. He's seen all around town on foot and no one does that either. He has no dogs and just one car and it runs. But sometimes it doesn't move for a week or more at a time. He rides a bike too all over and it has these two black bags one on each side of the rear wheel. A lot of times these black bags are packed full of something. There's a gray cat that hangs around his place too. Instead of a lawnmower he goes round and swings a cutter of some kind. Weeds don't bother us around here.
Cops: How many cats?
Caller: Just one but it looks like it could be mean. There's more too.
Cops: That's fine we got plenty to work with here. We'll get this forwarded to Central.

It's been my experience in respect to New York the state and the city there are two types of people and if anyone is offended - tough shit.

Outside the city the "Upstater's" who I have met and known so many of are a fine lot to the last. That is the honest truth.

Downtown Yorkers is another matter. A 180° matter.

Like most of them this Trump fellow is first of all a huge horse's ass. The other day I actually listened to a few seconds of him. Been years.  What a New York prick.

Downtown Yorkers and Texans - hard to call. Sorry Fearguth.

It's not as much what this asshole says that I find interesting as the numbers of people who identify with it. Any one of these repug candidates pose close to an equal amount of a threat.

Our country is in severe divisive turmoil that continues to unravel in an ever quickening pace as we head towards what may be the most important election ever.
