Trophy Hunting

What I am about to say, might anger some. Feel free to unfollow me.

I have no issue with hunting. I know many people that hunt deer locally. We are not talking about deer, we are talking about animals that are being hunted into extinction.

Big game. These animals are hunted as trophies. Not for food. It makes me ill. Every creature has a purpose on this planet. If you think that once a species is extinct that it will not have a negative effect on the environment, then you are sadly mistaken. Take a look at what happened to Yellowstone once they reintroduced wolves.

Some species that have been declared extinct in the last 10 years:

Western African Black Rhinoceros

Eastern Cougar

Pinta Tortoise

Formosan Clouded Leopard

Animals teetering on the brink of extinction:

Bornean Orangutan

Amur Leopard

Snow Leopard

Javan Rhinoceros

Sumatran Rhinoceros

Red Wolf

Giraffes

Gorillas

Asian Elephant

Indian Elephant

Sri Lankan Elephant

Sumatran Elephant

Bengal Tiger

Amur Tiger

Indochinese Tiger

Malayan Tiger

Sumatran Tiger

Borneo Pygmy Elephant

Chimpanzee

Giant Panda

Sea Lions

Are we getting the picture? These are species that are essential for the ecosystem. Species that other species rely on for food. It’s a domino effect. We better wake up!

Anniversary-Thyroidectomy

Nine years ago today I had my thyroidectomy. It was confirmed I had Papillary cancer and it had spread into the lymph nodes.

I had a lot of swelling and a lot of pain after this surgery. It was a cake walk next to the RAI treatment though. That was absolute hell.

But I am still here. I am a survivor! I encourage every single person to have their doctor feel them up!! 😂 Your neck that is! Check that neck!!

Many blessings!

The Adventures of Laura-Who Dat?

Archives 2015

Okay, let me start this off by saying that I have never had a problem being alone, and I am not one to freak out over just anything, unless you want to bring spiders and snakes into this….but I digress. So, I heard a loud thud, that sounded like somebody was trying to get inside my house or already inside my house. It was just me and my dog home. I investigate with my trusty dog, Jazzy, by my side. I check closest areas first and nothing, I start my descent down my looooooong hallway to investigate the bedrooms. I finally reach the bedrooms and do a quick visual of all them and as I ready to enter the first bedroom, I turn back to see my dog Jazzy sitting in the hallway-all the way at the other end of the house! THANK YOU VERY MUCH! Traitor! I knew I should have gotten that Rottweiler!

So, I head into my bedroom to grab my aluminum ball bat and the entire time I am holding the telephone with my parents’ number already dialed just in case. What do I find when I reach my side of the bed? My bat is gone! What!? Oh no!! SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then I notice my electronic cigarette on the nightstand, I grab it. Don’t ask me why, I don’t know why!?!?!?! I start looking for something to protect myself with, just in case, and all I can find is a cane. Well this is going great!

A loud thud, that sounds like someone is breaking into or already inside of my house, dog is a chicken shit, my bat is missing in action and I am so damn nervous I will probably try to smoke my cane and beat somebody with my electronic cigarette! I checked every room and found nothing. Thank God!

I have no idea what the hell the sound was but I do know that no one was in any of the closets, or under any of the beds…..so I guess the mystery will remain unsolved. Which is fine by me!

Note to self-next dog is gonna be a Rottweiler!
