It’s nature, so how can we interfere or criticize?

Video may not meet the Sobek Brevity Seal of Approval.

Man, that sure was a long video.

Eagle 1 goat 0

Eagles are mean!

4. Eagle - March 24, 2009

Hey! I gotta eat, too!
And they’re tenderized when I get back to them.

5. Goldie - March 24, 2009

C’mere, goat. I want to honor you.

6. Sobek - March 24, 2009

Keep it pithy, that’s all I’m saying.

7. eddiebear - March 24, 2009

No bloviating, I guess?

8. Sobek - March 24, 2009

If an eagle can make its point in 30 seconds, there’s no need to drag it out for seven minutes.

I thought we all learned this lesson from listening to Clinton speeches, but I guess when you have a brain the size of a walnut, your long-term memory suffers.

Too long, too much drama. Kill. Eat.

I agree that it was a wee bit too long. While I was in the den for seven minutes watching this educational film with my four-year-old, my two-year-old was in the kitchen climbing on the counter and playing with the mortar and pestle…which as it turns out had leftover ground black peppercorns in it….

When I found him his face was covered in black pepper specks…it turns out he’s not much a fan of black pepper. I’m a horrible mother. 😦

I think we’re all on the same page here.

It’s a metaphor for the economy, isn’t it?

13. geoff - March 24, 2009

It’s a metaphor for the economy, isn’t it?

“I gotta go drop a goat.”

Maybe not a metaphor for the economy, exactly.

14. Lipstick - March 24, 2009

I don’t want to watch. Poor goat.

15. Tushar - March 24, 2009

What gets my goat is, how long this video is.

16. daveintexas - March 24, 2009

Dear Mrs. Sobek.

Youngsters will always challenge us in this regard. They are exploratory, and inexperienced, or “dumb”, in the vernacular.

Injuries and grief are difficult to bear when these things happen, but they do happen. If it’s any consolation at all, that they come to you, the source of love and comfort, is a good thing, and I think a far better measure of your ability as a mom.

I felt like a stupid puke when Abby burned her fingers. Brought tears to my eyes. But shit happens, and you take care of them, and that makes you as fine a mom as there ever was, and I’m puttin you right up there with my sainted DaveinTexas momma.

Who wasn’t afraid to smack me even when I got taller. FWIW.

Oh, and everyone else reading this. I’m still a mean bastard, so shut up you boogerheads.

17. Mrs. Sobek - March 24, 2009

*wipes a tear from her eye*

Thanks Dave.

I have been going through a series of lessons with my daughter entitled, “See. That’s why you don’t do…”

As much as it kills me to have it happen, I can prattle on forever about something, but it seems the only way she realizes that running around on concrete with no shoes on her feet, or riding her bicycle in Crocs, or trying to simulate Superman are bad ideas are for her to get scrapes and bruises.

Thankfully, Bandages are cheap.

Hello ! 😉
My name is Piter Kokoniz. Just want to tell, that your blog is really cool
And want to ask you: will you continue to post in this blog in future?
Sorry for my bad english:)
Thank you:)

20. Cathy - April 7, 2009

Hey Piter.
Your English is fine.
Glad you found something you like.
Come back when you can.
Somebody will be here.

21. Wickedpinto - April 7, 2009

the name has a scandinavian flavor to it.

Are you scandinavian, Piter?

(it’s an inside joke)

22. Cathy - April 7, 2009

Eddie. Your series of lessons for your daughter, the I TOLD you so series, sounds kinda boring.

It needs some spicing up if you are going to keep her attention and gain some credibility. How ’bout we spice up your lesson plans? Here are my suggestions.

See honey. That’s why we don’t put a whole spoonful of Marie Sharp’s hot sauce on our oatmeal.

See honey. That’s why we don’t smoke cigars on an empty stomach.

See honey. That’s why we don’t go barefoot around the pool after Uncle WickedPinto has been there.

23. geoff - April 7, 2009

[shakes head sadly]

Cathy’s talkin’ to the spambots again.

24. Cathy - April 7, 2009

Thanks Geoff. I still have much to learn.

25. Wickedpinto - April 7, 2009

I’m a horrible mother.

My brother and I weren’t the most rambunctious of kids, but we acted more significantly when we did act, I think all kids given the proper amount of room (as in actually proper, not as in “enough rope to hang themselves” sorta form) inflict a common amount of damage upon themselves and terror upon their parents.

When I finally matured (physically) and broke my foot (first significant injury I had absorbed was when I was 19) I sorta noticed that it’s something of a miracle that children survive childhood with all the stupid stuff they do, cuz, after all that’s what children are, Ignorant, horribly, democrat level ignorant, otherwise baby eddie would have been the hostess and us tired old people would just be drunk.

After spending time with friends children, and young relatives as a technically adult human I noticed that it’s not just a miracle that children survive childhood, but that parents survive the raising of children.

The human body is remarkable to survive the abuse of childhood, and the adult heart for surviving the near constant terror of being in charge of something that is the equivalent of a retarded meth addicted monkey who knows how to use tools.

26. Wickedpinto - April 7, 2009

That’s why we don’t go barefoot around the pool after Uncle WickedPinto has been there.

I thought I was absolved of all wrongdoing! How did I know there was gonna be a friggen windstorm?

“Cut the chase and link to the interesting part”

“Linking to a video where the real action starts at 3 minutes 22 seconds, wondered if you could make it start at 03:22? You are in luck. All you have to do is add #t=03m22s (#t=XXmYYs for XX mins and YY seconds) to the end of the URL.”

Hey, that’s a pretty good tip! I can’t tell you how often I’ve wanted to crop youtube vids.

Will Site Admin put that in the Help tab for posterititiny?
