Short and Local

I've been thinking a lot about a variety of things lately.  It's very easy to think out here at the woodpile as you are stacking or chopping wood most of the day, but I love it.  I get to write jokes in my head, think of what is happening around me and sing songs.  Those are the things that I do with my day, I like it, it keeps me busy.

I thought of this joke today:

I would make a horrible deer.  You know when you see a deer from 20 or 30 yards away and the deer clearly knows that you are there and they feel your every movement?  I'm no good at that type of intuitive behaviour.  If I was a deer you'd be able to come up behind me, grab my tail and yell, "Boo!" And I would pee my dear pants.  Literally, hunters would be able to save ammunition and just walk up to me and choke me out.  I wouldn't even be a deer in the headlights I'd just have my head down and a car would plough right over top of me.  As my deer spirit was leaving my deer body all I could think would be,"What happened?  I was just eating some gravel."

It needs some work, but I like the premise. :)  Famous words from all comedians.

Sorry this is so short and sweet, but I'm working on a podcast based around the idea of death and well, it's taking me some time.  Yet, at the same time, I would like to keep posting at least something every Wednesday - so here you have it.  My lame joke.

Be well Eddy!  And go see a performance from a local artist this week.  Or go try a new restaurant that is owned and operated by a local (not a corporation) this week.  Go to the market and buy local food, grown by local people.  Support you community and watch it grow into a beautiful place.
