I didn’t post a picture of the l roach I just finished. this one is a woodland style roach. it is 7 inches long with a double row of 7 inch front hair. the inside and outside deer tail trim is red with a yellow and blue rainbow road. I haven’t wrapped it yet to shape it. the roach always looks better after it is shaped.
I am building inventory for the pow wow stand I will have. I talked to my sister who does beadwork. we agreed to share costs on a pow wow stand. we plan to do a few pow wows. we have to go to our market. I have to make some smalls like miniature hand drums etc. gotta have smalls to help pay for the stand.
I have been sorting porcupine hair again. I have pounds of it. I am separating the best hair so that I can just do a fine sort before I start tying it. that is taking time because I have pounds of hair to go thru.
winter starts in 9 days. that is the calendar date. I go by having our winter dance. either way winter season is about to start. we already had snow a number of times. that is good for putting moisture in the ground. maybe next growing season will be better than the past two years we had. I need to replenish my dried indian corn supply.
it hasn’t been cold but I haven’t been outside much lately. I do feed my dogs and chickens everyday. I need to change my tire. it has gone flat. I tried to change it but the tire musta got rusted onto the wheel. I couldn’t take it off. I sprayed wd40 on it but that hasn’t worked. I will try it again. I need my car running.
I got an email asking if I wanted any tickets to the KU game against Villanova this Saturday. I didn’t click on the link to the ticket office. I have to pass because I know it will cost a few bucks. I would like to see the game but I am saving my money. I will record the game because I will be at our winter dance.
I cleaned the stove pipes. don’t particularly care to do that chore but it has to be done. when the pipes are clogged it smells like smoke. too much creosote build up is what causes chimney fires. I clean mine so that don’t happen. the fire burns better when the pipes are clean.
I like what I am hearing about KU’s football program. they hired a new coach. he has won a national championship. he is hiring other noted coaches to fill out his staff. it sounds like we will have good coaching. now can we recruit the athletes to come to Kansas.
I want to go to a game next football season. I have gone to games over the years. they used to take our high school football team to KU games. I have gone to many others over the years. I had season tickets when I was a student at KU. I didn’t last long as a student there but I did go to games.
the actor that played billy jack died on this date. the character he played was part indian. anytime someone messed with him, he would put his foot upside their head. indians used to cheer for him even thought he didn’t look indian. it musta been cuz he had that don’t f#$@ with me attitude. there weren’t any indians in movies back in the day. well there were the ones that fell off their horses when they got shot by the ‘good guys’. and there was tonto. too many emulated him.
my old folks check and my per cap hit the bank today. but this indian is staying home. gotta save my money.
