Here is an inspiring~"I learned to follow my own dreams"~child's tale from me dino's neck of the woods.
Here's further information about the article~
Hoover is the ritziest satellite city of Birmingham where I generally go to buy the good stuff albeit PC related products, Big & Tall clothes, guns, the best indoor shooting range, the best mall, the best book store, the best Chinese deli, etc
I get Yerllowhammer with four or five articles in my email every day.
The yellowhammer woodpecker is Alabama's state bird.
Yellowhammer is even mentioned in the Crimson Tide's infamous nyah we beat you taunt chant.
Even during the short time it was banned, the fans sang it anyway. I was in the stands the first time that happened.
Coaches of the opposing team (can't recall which 20 or so years ago) turned around and gawked up at us as if saying, "How dare you?"

    Thanks. Been noticing my memory can be selectively negative while doing my income taxes, it a chore that I hate.
    Rather pay a consumption tax rather than suffer this deliberately made hard to do bother.
    Once I tried the Liberty Tax Service. They made a $1,000 mistake. I got the State of Alabama to cough it back up a year and a half later.

    Spot on! I heard the other day that milk is now racist. These people are unbelievably insane. But why do we put up with it? What are we so afraid of...this is how tyranny gets a stranglehold on a people because they sit back and do nothing.

    That is awesome, a true building block for her future.
    Speaking of inspired. We all would love to read old Dino's fiction . I can't wait to have the Yellowhammer publish news of "Chasing little Red" and of the perils and revenge of Babette.

    I don't know if the Northern flicker or yellowhammer makes its way to Minnesota ,but it does look familiar. The coolest woodpecker I have seen in the back yard is a Pileated woodpecker.https://g.co/kgs/n5KLX3

      That bird with many names does make it for spending summer in Canada, according to a map included in this link~

      Hope I live to finish that novel.
      It's 12:37 AM, which means I turned 70 yesterday.
      Tick! Tick! Tick!

        70?
        A mere lad. Well, a full-grown lad with experience. Tick tick indeed, but you realize, we start dying the moment we're born. The problem with life is that there are few instructions for the young, and as an adult you've usually screwed up so badly that it takes years to get straight.

          I know people my age and younger who are taking dirt naps.
          I have imagined myself marching in a skirmish line with a musket dressed up like a soldier on parade way back when.
          Enemy muskets are shooting as we advance.
          Thump! Another one bites the dirt. Heart attack. Guy couldn't quit smoking. Dennis Brown
          You never know who is next.
          Thump! Another one bites the dirt. Drunk driver head-on kills a nice guy. Corrections Officer King just wanted to drive to work.
          Will the next one be me?
          Thump! Another one bites the dirt. Officer Donaldson was the only one killed at that prison. He relieved me and then died.
          Zing! Thought I was a goner there once on another post. Nyah! You missed me!
          Thump! Another one bites the dust. Crazy Betty my age was only eating peaches yet choked to death.
          Thump! Another one bites the dirt. Heart attack.
          Well, Mashburn was a--no, no don't speak ill of the dead.
          And that ain't all of them.
          Zing! X 7 times when I could have been dead. Nyah! Nyah! You missed me!

          I did, though a party postponed for tonight again got postponed until Saturday next week.
          The reason? A granddaughter was diagnosed with the flu on my birthday.
          It just hit me writing this. I should send her a get well card. Not in person, though.

            Maybe you should celebrate all week long and take a pass on the flu.

                I need to attend to that dreaded task as well. I certainly can procrastinate easily with that work!
                Take a few moments to think of your top ten birthdays moments and share if you would.

                  When I turned 21, my French-Irish mom wanted to hear half Swedish me say, "Today I yam a man."
                  Can't think of ten birthdays that were all that over the top special.
                  I had a birthday when attending the academy for the Alabama Department of Corrections in Selma back in 1982. On that day my class rode a school bus with our instructors to tour Kilby Prison at Montgomery and I was telling everybody this was my birthday present.
                  During my 21-year career, I got to take over 10 of my birthdays off. Most state workers get state holidays off. Not so at prisons. At prisons you work a holiday and then put in paperwork to take that day off. Saint Patrick's Day ain't a state holiday but who wants to work on his birthday? The state of Alabama ain't all that into Saint Patrick's day~so putting in to get my same day birthday off was pretty easy-peasy.
                  By 1985 I realized that I really hated to work a prison in the Summer heat. So I saved up my holiday time and combined it with my vacation time to take almost the entire month of August off.
                  After I successfully pulled that stunt, the warden put out a memo that corrections officers could only have two week vacations period.
                  I was all like "Aw, c'mon! What difference does it make?"
