Today I walked my dog twice and ate chiken.

Sun Dogs look like rings or "poles" around the sun. They typically form just after sunrise on windy, bitterly cold mornings after snow falls. If you have never seen them, consider yourself lucky ... here's why.
A Sun dog is caused by water vapor that freezes into ice crystals. The sunlight is then refracted by the ice crystals, forming bright rings on either side of the visible sun. Sun dogs usually happen when the temperature is well below zero, and the wind is stronger than 15 miles an hour. The rings are supposed to resemble the tails of dogs - hence the name. I call them frostbite beek-ons. Be one with the chickens, and stay inside!

Snowflakes pure white that paint fading green
warm breezes replaced by frigid still presence
the trees are naked and brown
seasons colors are dimmed
red barns seem to glow
fields in slumber as the lazy sun rises
the labors of summer fleeting, trailing in mind
roosters call quickly ... the cattle lie passive
the children have blankets inside
as you peer through a window
the farmhouse stands beaming
seasons meld flow and mingle, as winter moves past
lights, decorations, smells of pie - smells of bread
family gathered with smiles ... it's Christmas at last

The year was 1989, and I was on the verge of retirement from professional stunt bike jumping. My doctor told me that one more injury to my groin area might result in my "nuggets" falling off ... in turn, producing probable man boobs. Yes, my baby makin` days were done, but still. Who wants stuff falling off - NOT ME.
Due to a few financial problems and a need to end my career with a world record that would last, I made a "fire from the hip plate" decision. Yes, I would make ONE LAST JUMP.
That jump was no ordinary run of the mill type, it was over 700 buses. My technical advisor told me that I needed a take off speed of 107 mph to have any chance of success. To add some insurance, I set my goal ramp speed at 117 mph.
As you all well know, I do not have man boobs. I did achieve motorcycle legend status that Saturday afternoon. I still have a .... well, you know, and a really cool belt in my memorabilia case.
