autie Unless your native treaties signed for land sessions allows natives to graze their live stock on any unused lands private, or unowned properties. As long as they are not being used. I hope your native. If not get a native to buy one, and keep it on your property. There is nothing the city, county, or state could do.

"why do some folks have to put a political slant on everything. including a thread about weather."

I've started to think that maybe it might be a muscle memory thing. The fingers just move in familiar patterns on their own from time to time.

...other than the discussion over which type of goat is acceptable within city limits, at what point did people get political prior to your post, Mel?

Overreact much?

That being said, if this is global warming, sign me up! Way to go Big Al! Better make some more private jet flights around the world to talk about how we all need to cut back on our fossil fuel consumption!

There, now you can overreact!

all that jibber jabber sounded political'ish to me, b3x. on the topic of "have you been enjoying this nice weather?" i would think that the answers would be simplistic and succinct. anything more than an "uh huh..... nice outside lately" is too much.

It has been another year without a summer. No bike rides, no swimming, no shorts or sandals, bleah. Now it's September and I have to wait another nine months for a chance for decent weather.

No offense, Mel, but you must be new to the forums. Simplistic and succinct answers don't exist here. Every comment is laced with the political and moral leanings of each poster. In the case of Merill's cut and pastes, "laced" might be an understatement!

...but if it makes you feel better...

We've taken the opportunity during these cooler temperatures to get some extra yard work done.
