Bonus Video: A Dawn Horse

The Eohippus, “Dawn Horse” (aka Hyracotherium), comes to life in one of my favorite movies, The Valley of Gwangi–another wonderful special effect by the stop-action wizard, the late great Ray Harryhausen.

James Franciscus is about to be tempted into a very great folly…

 


Cozy Cats

See? Cats aren’t aloof and snooty. How did that canard ever get started?

True, they would rather you didn’t read or write. Not when you could be paying attention to them instead. But I’m glad my cats don’t walk on the keyboard while I’m typing.


By Request, ‘Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus’

This hymn request by Erlene couldn’t have come at a better time–Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, sung by Alan Jackson.

O Jesus our Lord, turn your eyes upon us. We need you!


Prayer Request: Us

I’m looking at a whopping great car repair bill, and my heel spur is on the warpath lately, which hurts. But Patty needs your prayers more than I do.

My doctor subjected her to a bunch of tests but never offered a diagnosis. And now, in addition to her other afflictions, her ankles are painfully swollen and this morning a delivery person, opening the door to our foyer, hit Patty in the head with it as she bent over the recycling box. So things are not going at all well for us here.

Please join in prayer for my wife: we need those prayers. O Lord our God, have mercy on us, let it be that we’ve bottomed out and now you’ll start to make things better for us. Please, Father, heal my wife! In Jesus’ name, Amen.


More Climbit Change B.S. from Netflix

Preparing to end it all

Leftids will do absolutely anything to get a global government, with themselves in charge, and “Climate Change” is their ticket to ride.

Polar bears having perversely refused to go exinct–indeed, their numbers have increased, probably due to racism and transphobia–Far Left Crazy needs a new critter to serve as the icon of Climate Change We’re All Doomed.

So David Attenborough has filmed a lot of walruses pitching themselves off a cliff, committing suicide because bad old Donald Trump took us out of the Paris Climate Scam and the walruses are just insupportably sad! and the only way to save them is to bestow vast and absolute power on the same government varmints who have the San Francisco sidewalks heaped high with human feces and daily strive to pave over every square foot of ground in New Jersey.

Really? You guys are gonna save the planet? Do you think I literally can’t see what you libs have done to my own home town? You’re the environmental-friendly party? Detroit, Camden, Gary, Baltimore, Newark, Oakland, Seattle… Do you truly believe we don’t know what happens to any place where you’re in charge?

Anyway, walruses fall off cliffs because they get panicked by polar bears (non-extinct, non-computer-generated ones) hunting them, humans filming them, helicopters hovering above them, or any combination thereof. They are not offing themselves because Americans drive cars.

We need to save the planet from the Save The Planet crowd.

 


My Poor Car [wail and gnash teeth]

See the source image

Wahoo! The repair bill for my car will be at least $1,000, probably more–something about rusted-out brake line tubing, I dunno.

Options: 1) Do the repairs; 2) go without a car for the rest of my life; 3) buy a used car, with no idea, really, of what I’m getting; 4) buy a new car, costing a mountain of money, with computers in it that spy on you.

Hot dog. I guess I’ll take Door No. 1, Monty.

No, I am not ready to pedal my bike to Whole Foods every time we need something to eat and buy really healthy foods in small amounts. I am too old to enjoy riding my bike in inclement weather, with idiots creeping up behind me and beeping their horns.

 


‘Now That’s a Mystery!’ (2016)

A Socotra landscape. I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore, Toto.

So how do a bunch of primitive little prehistoric ape-men get to an island hundreds of miles out to sea?

https://leeduigon.com/2016/07/12/now-thats-a-mystery/

Maybe they hitched a ride from someone with a boat? Or maybe the “stone tools” found on Socotra aren’t really tools, but just stones?

Or maybe we just don’t know a lot of things we say we know.


‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’

Please don’t mind me posting my favorite hymns fairly often. I’ll post yours, too–all you’ve got to do is ask. Only a few of you ask, but the hymn shop’s open to all.

All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, sung by the choir at First Plymouth Church in Lincoln, Nebraska.


Rats Can Be Sweet

A lot of people don’t know this, but rats can be wonderful pets. They’re intelligent and affectionate–a good combination. Playful, too. And not hard to care for. What’s not to like?

When I had to bring one of our rats to the vet, she would ride on my shoulder and never jump off. People in the waiting room shied away at first, some with horrified expressions on their faces; but those sessions usually culminated in those very same people petting the rat and saying “kitchy-koo!” and other witticisms.

Be careful! They’ll win you over if you give them half a chance.
