"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation." ~Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776
My step-dad is unloading real estate. Fifth Street Apartments and Fifth Street Resale are going bye-bye. Lora, formerally co-manager of Fifth Street Resale, will be working daily at the community center across the street, replacing my next door neighbor, Annalara, who will be running the new house-converted-into-a-corner-store around the corner. Emily will be working at the store, too.
I will be supervising things from my attic. ;p
I don't know if this is the first move in THE PLAN to relocate but it's obvious that we're pulling more into the community, the way it was in the before time; pre-1970s. Personally, I'd druther it be that way.
I have two girlfriends who will both be going to school with me come August, and working within shouting distance very soon. My family lives right next door. I have horses. I have woods. A pond. We're on a bluff 100 feet high that looks out over the Mississippi River with flatland scenery that stretches out for miles over Missouri.
I have TONS, and I mean FUCKIN' TONS, of reading materal, viewing material, (YAY4BUFFY!!!) sex toys, KITCHEN KNIVES, wine, frozen meat, marshmellows, chocolate chips. (To stuff in the marshmellows.)
I get to see ravens, rabbits, groundhogs, foxes, deer a dozens of multi colored birds. Every January when the river freezes American Bald Eagles gather to fish at the lock and dam. I can hear coyotes howl at night.
I can walk around the community and even into town anytime day or night and feel safe, PLUS, never has any ONE girl ever been able to go out and TP people's houses with the frequancy that I do.
Everyone here likes me. ^_^
Okay, eveyone except Erika, (Sara Lesson The First; Poison a person's dog and they hold it against you FOREVER.) but she doesn't matter in my life so...
I really, REALLY, reallyreallyreally love it here. :(
Leaving would be a very difficult thing to do. :( (On a side note; LONDON has been ruled out for relocation. I've heard about this "slapping" thing and there is NO WAY I would stand for such a thing cause I SWEAR the very first person that slapped me would start to walk away and I would jump on his back and knock him to the ground and start smashing his face into the concrete! Then I'd grip his hair at both temples and start scraping his face side to side on the concrete so it would tear into his flesh DOWN TO THE BONE and his FUCKIN' teeth would start to break from scraping against the concrete and then I would start smashing his face into the concrete again and I would smash it and smash it andSMASHITSMASHITSMASHITSMASHIT!!!
Anyways, I would love for us to become semi-isolationists. There's a Amish community about 2 miles from here and tho they come into town often they never socialize with anyone. Friendly people when you do the addressing but I don't think I've ever heard of any of them starting a conversation with people living in Quincy.
We have farmland but it's mostly used to grow sellable harvests. Corn one year, soybean the next, then corn again. (I won't bore you with the whys of that system. If you're interested, Google it.)
Right now it's mushroom season. Every year at this time you'll find hundreds of people in Quincy waking before the crack of dawn to go out looking for them. (A certain kind.) I never got into the whole `shroom thing but Lora did it since she was just a wee little Belle so sometimes I go out with her and Annalara. And of course Emily is all gung ho for any new experiance. P.s. these mushrooms aren't the kind that get you high.
Changing the subject for a sec; Emily has admitted to us that she likes to do her morning primping AFTER breakfast, while Lora and I go right for the bathroom when the alarm goes off. Emily sleeps for an extra 15 minutes then sits at the kitchen table with us drinking her hot coco looking all discombluberated and sexy whatwith her hair sticking up every which way and her eyes half open whilst we sit primped and fresh admirering her.
She appreciates this from us. :)
Another subject change cause I thought this was SO cool!; Lora has gotten use to my late night wanderings and usually when she hears me banging around the house it barely wakes her. I have however been concerned about Emily's sleep so I try to be extra quiet now.
When I asked her t'other day if I woke her making too much noise the night before, she looked at me and said, "I kept hearing something but I figured it was you so I went back to sleep."
To which Lora then turns to me and says, "See, you've officially become THAT THING THAT GOES BUMP IN THE NIGHT!"
YAY, ME!!! ^_^
Okay, back to the community...
My oldest and dearest and for many years ONLY friend, whom I grew up with and had my first sexual experiance with, Catherine (Katie became Kat at 15, became Kate at 18 and since has taken to calling herself Catherine.) will be coming home from college for the summer.
Our daughter will also be coming to spend the summer if things work out. If you haven't been a long time friend and reader of my blog; Our "daughter" is Lora's young cousin Ashley who lived with us for nearly five months last year. We talk to her regularly now and although we haven't figured out how to explain our new Emily to her yet, she's an intelligent little sweetie so it'll be good.
Took a look down a westbound road, right away I made my choice.
Headed out to my big two wheeler, I was tired of my own voice.
Took a beat on the northern plains and just rolled that power on.
Twelve hours out of Macanaw City stopped at a bar to have a brew.
Met a girl and we had a few drinks and I told her what I decided to do.
She looked out the window a long, long moment then she looked into my eyes.
She didn't have to say a word.
I knew what she was thinkin'.
Rooooll, roll me away, won't you roll me away tonight.
I too am lost and I feel double crossed and I'm sick of what's wrong and what's right.
We never even said a word we just walked out and got on that bike.
And we rolled, and we rolled clean out of sight.
I know Ashley is gonna love Emily and Emily will no doubt go iNsAnE over our sweetum nookiecookie widdle beeter button wuvvie duvvie! :p
So this summer the Lesbo Brigade will officially include...
Lorabelle; 20, Our fearless and man hatin' leader.
Emmie; 19, "I'll try anything once." (And she has! ^_^)
Me; 20, duh.
Ashley; 11, Being a lesbian couple we'll of course bring our kids up GAY!
Laura; 17, Muh sissy the wannabe.
Catherine; 20, Closet BI. sssssshhhh!
Chris; Our 28 year old mother figure.
Tammy; 20, Straight but likes to join in when we have our drunken, sleepover, group make-out sessions. (FUCK PILLOW FIGHTS!)
Deanna; 20, Tammy's BFF and unsure.
Kyle; 20, Our official "not a lesbian."
Lindsey; 21, BI. Kyle's wife.
Destiny; Kyle and Lindsey's 2 yr old daughter who is NOT allowed to join make-out sessions.
See, we're not really a bunch of lesbians. There's actually only four lesbians with the rest being a group of LIBERAL FREAKS banding together to show support for their own and each others depraved and deviant ways of life.
I love my friends. :)
Funny thought just occured to me; I can't think of one person who posts on my blog that wouldn't fit in here. You guys are a bunch of depraved deviants! :) (And I mean that in the most sincere way.)
Well I guess I've rambled on far too long. More later.

Three members of the Illinois General Assembly have introduced a bill that urges the General Assembly to submit charges to the U. S. House of Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the President of the United States, George W. Bush, for willfully violating his Oath of Office to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and if found guilty urges his removal from office and disqualification to hold any other office in the United States. http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/node/9137
California Becomes Second State to Introduce Bush Impeachment
By David Swanson
04/24/06 -- -Joining Illinois, California has become the second state in which a proposal to impeach President Bush has been introduced in the state legislature. And this one includes Cheney as well.http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article12824.htm
Last Tuesday afternoon, Rep. Dave Zuckerman (Prog.-VT) dropped the third of three nearly unreported bombshells on the Bush administration.
Zuckerman, along with 12 fellow lawmakers, introduced a formal resolution for the Vermont state legislature to call on the U.S. House of Representatives to impeach President George W. Bush.
With this resolution, Vermont joined the California and Illinois state legislatures, already embroiled in impeachment debates of their own.http://www.alternet.org/story/35467/
