Hi, guys! I feel like it need to clarify a few things…
First, there’s no mistake in the fact that I still have a link to DeTye Vet Supply on my blog. They have asked to extend their sponsorship for another month, so… YAY! That will give you a quick link to go shop for supplies for your cattle and horses. Jump on over, support a small business, and most likely, save yourself some money!
I must be honest. There is no Copenhagen tribe. I was writing a very tongue in cheek paragraph, forgetting that many of you don’t know people that actually use tobacco. Copenhagen is probably the best known brand of “chew”. Known for wearing faded circles on the back of cowboys’ jeans pockets, Copenhagen is sold in a round cardboard box with a silver tin lid.
“Just a pinch between cheek and gum.” Its use, like smoking cigarettes, has practically disappeared compared to what it used to be. When I found the lid of a Copenhagen can in the bottom of the rock blind, I just turned on my sarcasm and created an anthropological viewpoint. My own little version of the British “Time Team” show.
Yes, the blind oversees much land, though until recently, when wildfires burned this ridge, there would have been junipers blocking some of the view and also helping hide you. Yes, it could have been rebuilt or updated, yes, it could be new. But, alas, not by the Copenhagen tribe.
I apologize for my sarcastic humor.
For those of you who got my joke, way to go in adding more details! Bert, your comment made me laugh!
Koozies, for those of you who also don’t about them, are thin foam holders that help keep beverages cold. I like them because I take a long time to drink a pop or beer, and I prefer them both cold. Experts usually don’t need a koozie because they drink them so fast. Koozies also keep your hand from getting cold. Finding a koozie was another hint that hunters had been there in the past few years.
Eagle traps are real things. People have used all sorts of devices to capture eagles. Mongolians train them to hunt, Native Tribes treasure their feathers. My first exposure to eagle traps came from a Walt Disney movie called “The Legend of the Boy and the Eagle.” It’s amazing that I remember so much of that movie since I was only nine when it showed. I’d like to watch it again, just to see if my memory is correct, or if I’ve created some of my own storyline!
Anyone else remember this show?
