Nooze-free Sunday

See the source image

I have been trying to avoid the nooze today. In this I have not been entirely successful, and the several items that slipped past my guard were, as usual, appalling. But certainly I can avoid writing about it.

Why post a picture of a tiger swallowtail butterfly? Because it’s beautiful! God’s handiwork. And relish the blue of the sky in the background.

Tomorrow will be time enough for nooze; it’ll still be there in all its dreariness. For today, we have a hymn, a reflection by Rev. R.J. Rushdoony, and, I hope, a couple of good, sanity-saving laughs. I hope you’ll enjoy them.


Beautiful Tiger Swallowtail

Hi, Mr. Nature here–and I just can’t let the summer pass without saluting one of my favorite critters, the tiger swallowtail butterfly. Happily, they’re not uncommon around here. I saw a nice one this morning.

The one in this video is a male. The females have a border of metallic blue spots along the bottom of their wings; and some females have black wings. I always thought that was another species, but I was wrong.

As man’s stuff continues to deteriorate, God’s stuff is still going strong-and this is one of the most beautiful examples of it.

It would be a sorry world that had to do without butterflies!
