Tuesday Tails: extremely rare Wolverine shot dead; Little Wolfie's tail; what I'm reading...Text size Corrected



I thought I'd put a plug in for getting Wolverines protected.  I'd like to bounce the The US Fish and Game into the wall a  few dozen times, those rascals!  I don't even care if people don't like Wolverines because these feisty little creatures have as much right  to be here as say, Elk, and they should be respected.

"Terrible news: An exceedingly rare wolverine was apparently just gunned down by a rancher in North Dakota. Even though there are only 300 wild wolverines left in the contiguous United States, this tragic killing was perfectly legal -- because the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service didn't protect them under the Endangered Species Act when the Center for Biological Diversity asked it to in 2014" 

 The quote above is from a newsletter from the Center for Biological Diversity. 


Wolfie was begging in the kitchen this AM and I thought his tail too cute to not make a snap of it.


His tail looks a lot like my hair right now.  It looks as if I combed it with an egg beater.  I have gray hair that can't make up it's mind if it's curly or not.  It used to be thick and curly unless it was very long.


Well, back to the book, The Help.

This older title was gleaned from the city library, and though we've already seen the movie the book is still very much worth reading.  I hope you will give it a try.  It keeps me from thinking too hard about things, and also reminds me just how far we've come as a nation, and, indeed, how far we still have to do.  And then came the movie:




Change really does begin with a whisper.  It's because of Oppression.  If you are "white, all white", you didn't notice it so much, probably.  Remember the song, "At Seventeen"?

  2. "The Help" is one of the best books I've read in the last ten years - and you, Zippi, are spot on. It lets us know just how far we've come (even if not far enough yet).
    Forgive me for using the reply button to comment, it's the only button I found.

    1. Reply button is fine Karen, I use it myself, most all the time, if this reply is what you mean. It will activate the message leavers' request to be informed if a reply was made to their comment. It's fine to use either one.

      I love that book. Yes, so far and so not far enough. I know some real bigots who have had to really watch their mouths lately and it does the heart good to see that they know enough to curb their tongues now.
