Another day of babysitting while the crew brought in the last of the cows. It was sunny today, but very windy and not warm at all. I felt very lucky to hang with Reagan instead. The other kids got off the bus at four, and their parents followed at five p.m. to eat their “lunch”.
Dinking around on YouTube tonight, I was watching the Crazy Lamp Lady‘s newest video and the Northern Mudlarks… two very different video channels. One is thrifting and reselling for a profit… I like thrift stores, but, of course, have a very limited supply here in Wyoming. The other is mudlarking along the Scottish/English border for old pottery, sea glass, and whatever treasures they can find to remake and sell.
I’d rather watch them than what’s on TV…
The Great News is that Megan has transferred *all* my old videos to YouTube! We will see if more people find them there. I’ve had to edit a few, but the majority of the work is DONE.
In that vein, I mentioned before in my latest Minute Movie Fencing Viewpoint, that I had been to that spot before. Here is what I was talking about.
The first was from 2011 when I was helping the guys with a Wildland Fire. The fire had burned itself out, but we were up there cleaning up the hot spots. I stay with the truck, refilling backpack sprayers, helping feed or roll up the hose. I used to really enjoy that, but, of course, regulations came along and I wasn’t allowed to help any more. Here’s THAT MOVIE. It’s pretty smoky, but you can glimpse some of the view. Points to those of you who notice I used to call them Monday Movies instead of Minute Movies…
The second video… well, I would have sworn that I made a video for that… although I *took* a video, I never published one! The post I wrote instead is HERE. I guess I decided fog and raindrops and wet dog and wet horse may not make the most interesting video!
The thrill of discovery like in the mudlarking videos, is something I can really relate to! If you remember, I once found a buffalo skull while hiking along the creek. That video can be rewatched HERE.
Ah, the memories.Find me here!
