Post-Jihad Woodstock


No sooner had peace descended upon the battlefield than a butterfly landed on one of my deadly assault rifles.



The pressure was off, the Jihad defeated, so I shot the creature. No! Not with a gun, with my beat up old camera. It was a kind of Joni Mitchell moment, I felt.

Devil Witch?

Many people think that Joni Mitchell is  a Devil Witch. She had a hand in Woodstock, which was a large hippie festival.

Hippies Goofing Off in the Mud

As I pondered that, I drove off the range and got stuck in the mud. That was like Woodstock, but without the hippies, or music, or thieving. A friendly farmer pulled me out of the mud with the help of a chain. He's a keen sportsman and enjoys long distance hunting and everything in between.

Thanks, JM, for the mudside assistance.

Hippies, you can use the side door.

You need to put a winch on your truck.

That bog on the way into the range looked like trouble when I was there.

jihad... woodstock... all in a day's work as a countryside missions parson.

(Also, your "beat up old camera" takes a good photo. Don't jihad it.)

A winch would be handy, LL. And so would 4x4...

It's all going on in the country, Jenny.

Glad you shot the butterfly that way, Parson. Go easy on Joni, she's one of us Canucks, even if she spent too much time in Cali-forny.

So is Neil Young, curiously... But I think Joni just got herself into some bad company.

What are we waiting for a lightning bolt from the Father.
I'm for starting a fund drive for the Padre's 4X4. He needs to be able to reach those in need, missions of mercy, and the shoot'n range...

LSP said...

Those are all excellent reasons for a fund drive, Brighid! I think I need a 4x4.

Looks like an io moth. I saw one today further northwest of your.
