Water Wars, a Cattle Battle & the Whiskey Rebellion

Vincent Easley II pictureRLM Resident Chatter, Hahns says, a gander is a goose and a pond is where aquatic birds like to swim . So VinE is going to talk about a goose in a pond and wonders if I will propose cooking that goose for mothers day.
Not a bad correlation nor idea. thank JDredd aka Hanhs

Taking Stock of What Ya Got.
“You can’t get lard unless you boil the hog”
But remember,
never kick a fresh turd on a hot day.
@PonderGander sorting through it, things they say in Texas
Nothing is ever as easy as picking up a turd by the clean end.

Julieta asks, Pues que chingados dijiste? to which I reply, La lengua está hecha en chicharrones.

Whiskey Is for Drinking; Water Is for Fighting Over.
#TheBattleOfBunkerville will take this up. I will start with that the farm was bought in the 40’s or 50’s. The family claims goes to ancestral linage on the land in that region. the water/grazing rights are held in deed or title in the court records of Clark County.

Donkey Otay @CervantesMount
Can we talk, @VinE_RLM_RADIO?

My challenge to you is to use your access to verify the Bundys claims to water, property or grazing rights on the public land adjacent to their 160 acres. They will not and can not demonstrate continuous, beneficial use starting in 1877.

A @PonderGander and Mark Twain #BehindTheWoodshed
Fresh water is an essential resource, and the battles over water rights in the Western region of the United States can be bruising.

Water Wars: There’s more to See:
Nor shapes of men nor beasts we ken—
The ice was all between.
Water, water, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.
Water, water, every where

The noun ken means “range of vision or comprehension.” If quantum mechanics is beyond your ken, you don’t understand it, or it is beyond your scope of knowledge. Ken is rarely used today outside of the phrase, “beyond one’s ken.”

That dammed desert, the only place you can drown, freeze to death or die of thirst all on the same day.
Deserts cover about one fifth of the Earth’s surface and occur where rainfall is less than 50 cm/year. (that’s near 20 inches for Americans) Although most deserts, such as the Sahara of North Africa and the deserts of the southwestern U.S., Mexico, and Australia, occur at low latitudes, another kind of desert, cold deserts, occur in the basin and range area of Utah and Nevada and in parts of western Asia. Most deserts have a considerable amount of specialized vegetation, as well as specialized vertebrate and invertebrate animals. Soils often have abundant nutrients because they need only water to become very productive and have little or no organic matter. Disturbances are common in the form of occasional fires or cold weather, and sudden, infrequent, but intense rains that cause flooding.
Dammed Desert

Beef Ain’t Always What’s for Dinner and Water’s not Jut for Wa(r)shing, nor a Long Tall Drink of Water.

The term exists in two forms: long drink of water and tall drink of water. Most dictionaries do not have the expression and no dictionary I checked has any speculation about the etymology of the term. The Historical Dictionary of American Slang defines the term as “a tall man” and has a first citation of 1936, but with minimal effort I’ve been able to antedate it possibly to 1904, though it’s not a strict use of it in metaphor:

1904 Daily Huron (South Dakota) “Makes a Big Hit” (May 7) p. 3: Then there is baby Patti, who is not much larger than a long drink of water and who is a marvel for a child.

The earliest for certain citation I have is this.

1924 Times (London, England) “The Speaker Defied” (May 10) p. 12: Mr. Kirkwood addressed his reproof to Lord Winterton, who, along with his colleagues, had protested against the defiance of the speaker’s ruling. “Ye are not treating with Indians, ye big long drink of water,” he shouted. Immediately the Speaker reproved the member for Dumbarton.

Another newspaper that quoted the same thing indicates that the speaker, Kirkwood, is a Scottish Labor party member, as also indicated by the “ye.” There’s nothing about the expression in the Dictionary of Scots Language.

Tall Drink of Water

The Road is as Rocky as the Day is Long on a Hot Summer’s Day.

Well I got me a gal in Pekin,
She’s a good oh gal okay,
Oh she’s sittin there waitin by a window fan,
On a long hot summer day.

Forever day I’m workin on the Illinois River,
Get a half a day off with pay,
Oh tow boat pickin up barges,
On a long hot summer day.

Well last night we had pork for supper,
Tomorrow it’ll be chicken consommé,
And fruit jar full of iced tea,
On a long hot summer day.

The Whiskey Rebellion
It’s a battle of the Long Islands, Iced Tea.
Insurrection in the South, AGAIN. Fight Night: Kingsport (my ancestral Homeland) vs. New York (get a Rope)
Kingsport officials sent a letter to the organization, Hudson’s on the Mile in New York to accept the challenge, it ended with “Bless yall’s heart.”

Based on your suggestion,
…the listings for Vincent Easley and Thomas Easley Cemeteries have been added to the map. Vincent Easley Cemetery
I still have more to add. I might need to stop doing new stuff for a while to catch up.

Getting the Goods: Happiness is sought by some at the bottom of a bottle. Others deem the dream to be in dry goods and proud to pay in a pound of flesh. ~ vreii
“To please the flesh a thousand arts contend. The miser’s heaps of gold… By toil acquir’d, promote no other end.”

Life Is Not Entropic.
(Yet) tends towards disorder without applied energy.
