sassafras of Oct 20 2007

Across the road from our dwelling place grows an old sassafras tree which is now turning red in spite of Georgia’s current record-setting drought. In a direct-to-scanner move, I have made it possible for you to virtually reach out and touch a sprig!

My Mom used to like to make sassafras tea and I tried to like it, really I did. But it kinda made me feel a smidge barfy, like gumbo-type flavorings still do. I’ve tried to like those sorts of flavors, too, but they’re apparently not my cuppa tea.

The drought continues in spite of recent rains…

Today Gov. Sonny Purdue announced that he’s applying to compassionate Bush for disaster relief status for north Georgia.  Assuming there are funds left in US coffers which haven’t been defrauded right out from under taxpayers’ snoots, we’ll see how that turns out.

Does this mean that the US Cavalry is on its way to Georgia, bugles blowing?

Not martial law–I mean jugs of H2O. So is water flowing in Iraq yet? Just wonderin’. How about electricity for more than an hour?

Purdue made a  threat to sue the Army Corps of Engineers the other day for draining Lake Lanier on behalf of Alabama, but I haven’t heard how the case is proceeding, if it is. Now my old Dad used to say that the Army Corps of Engineers had caused the country more harm than good for decades. And that was way before Hurricane Katrina.

Building in flood plains does seem counter-intuitive, doesn’t it?

Especially if ‘counter-intuitive’ is the politically correct way of saying too stupid for words.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
