Our forest fire is now 100% contained. Local firefighting efforts were slow in ramping up, causing it to go from 20 to 1000 acres overnight. National resources came in, but I think it got close to 5000 acres all said and done. Our closest friends had to evacuate for 5 days, but they're back home now. Not a single structure was lost by anyone, PTL. Those hotshot teams are mighty good.

Forgot to mention. It was caused by young men shooting at those exploding targets. What were they thinking?

Tannerite Targets are "funsies", if used properly and safely, but THAT is the problem.

The boys at Rangers were talking about Tannerite, just last night.  One boy said that a friend took about 5 charges (roughly $200.00 worth) of Tannerite, wrapped it around a tree, shot it, and it completely sheared the tree.

We had a talk, at length, about idiots who have done things like put several pounds of Tannerite in an old riding lawn mower, and the shrapnel came back and killed the user.  We also mentioned that even the pieces of a tree can be deadly shrapnel.

It is much like Cherry Bombs and M-80's.  You have a few idiots get maimed or killed, and the "Gub'ment" has to outlaw them from everyone.

This summer I'll be attending the anniversary of a farm that has continuously been in the family on my mom's side for 150 years. I know very little of the family, so I've been going through a stack of info she gave me years ago.

As it turns out, my great-grandmother (little girl at the time) hosted Abraham Lincoln for a night during his debate tour with Stephen Douglas. They put a chair at the foot of the bed so his feet had support.

Years ago, I had heard that Abraham Lincoln was too tall for many beds. That's an interesting piece of unique Family History.

Back from the reunion tonight. The farm event was good. Discovered mostly through listening, I found that the city folk were liberal and the farmers were conservative. No surprise there.

Minnesota came within a few percentage points of going for Trump in 2016. What will happen next time?

Semi-Related...

I was just talking with someone at Church, this past week. I said that we allow too many of our own creations to get in the way of seeing God's Creation.

Best example is that it seems a whole lot easier for us to sense and appreciate God when we are walking in a forest or alongside a stream than when we are in the middle of a large city.

Yeah, it's also pretty hard when you're sitting next to a 70-year old city cousin who's talking about her partner, growing marijuana and trying to hawk copies of her self-published book on Mother Gaia. But I did talk with a 78-year old cousin who's still farming, loves America and God, and hopes Trump is re-elected.

Just back this hour from a mid-west trip visiting relatives. Cooler and less humid than usual. "Felt great" is an understatement.
