We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
We need to tell you that there was some damage to the statue of the American Bison in front of the house in Big Sky.
We did attempt to prevent the damage, throwing stones at, and hitting, the attacker.The attacker could not be dissuaded, and kept up his assault for several hours and fortunately the attack was photographed - see below.
The incident even caused a traffic situation in front of the house,
The damage consisted of:
1) The loss of about two inches from the left horn.The broken piece is on the work bench in the garage. 2) Hoof scratches on the side of the Bison. 3) Some chips in the right rear hoof. 4) Blood stains behind the Bison.
The statue was also moved eight inches forward. We attempted to center the statue on the pedestal, but to no avail.
I am just on the other side of the rockpile in the foreground.
Much like "Bart" the grizzly, I am directing the Bison statue in this drama. He took the direction well, standing still while the moose gave a bravura performnace.
Habu Productions has now signed the moose to a long term contract.
