He will not step up if you put your hand in his cage but he'll step up on your hand if he's outside of his cage..

  some great pool days coming up !
Raise your wing if you saw mom on tv last night at the race . . . that's OK, I didn't either - but she had a super time ! The excitement in the air was incredible ! She tried to get pictures of AP but only got pictures of the backs of people's heads ! He was mobbed by his humans, his security, and fans . . . and mom is short ! It was so sad when he didn't win the race though . . . Mom won $4.20 when BigBeast placed in the Forego . . . she felt bad that he was saddled with such a name ! Not as intellectual as aunt Jane's picks, but it worked !

Today is another big day - the BC Adler BBQ at aunt Tanya's ! Mom can't wait to see them all again and aunt Tanya is only a little over an hour away - she promises to get more than the backs of heads with her camera this time !

Daddy will go check on the g'parronts and then come home early to me to play :) Hope you have a great day ! love Cookie

Thanks ! I think I'll just stay for a few days ! Busy, busy, busy here the next few days - I think mom is trying to cram the whole summer into just a few days ! Today the folks are visiting some friends in NJ, tomorrow they're going to Saratoga visiting mom's cousin Patty (not actually a cousin - when her parents were first married they lived in a two family house with Patty's family so the two grew up together). The best part of Saturday ? Every year they all go to Saratoga for the Travers for daddy's birthday ! ! Mom is actually going to get to see American Pharoh in person ! ! Then on Sunday mom is going to see aunt Tanya and aunt Rose and aunt Janet !

At least the weather is great and then mom promised to stay home with me ALL day Monday and Tuesday ! I wish you a great day :) I love you ! Cookie

  Cookie wakes up and stretches
What a great time at aunt Deb's house ! He talks to mama Mary on his BC cell and finds out :

mom and dad had a great time at the fair yesterday - mom took lots of pictures - some video of the pig races too ! Maybe she'll post those later on FB for everybird to see (just to get in the mood for our next Milonga !) They got to see all the animals (Landon's favorite part was feeding them), he and mom rode a camel (!), they saw a brand spanking new baby calf, and all the antiques. Mom loved that the horticulture theme this year was lights, camera, action so all displays were tv and movie related. There was even a minion made out of daisies ! Daddy loved the food ! har har har ! Landon and his mom left around 4:00 so mom and dad ate and then saw the Doobie Brothers - they're old men now ! YIKES ! Still it was a good show and they did all their old 70's songs . . .

Today mom wants to clean the carpets before heading back to school - they're pretty yucky. She thinks it's my fault . . . I say it's daddy's ! ! Anyway, I'm glad I'm here and not there with all that going on !

I'm on my way back for some fun in the sun !

Another perfect summer day here except for the fact that I'd be alone if it weren't for you ! Mom and dad and the niece are taking the g'nephew, Landon, to the county fair. Mom can't wait to see the craft tents - Landon wants to see the animals and go on some rides - and daddy wants to eat junk food ! If they're not too tired, mom and dad will stay for the concert tonight - the Doobie Brothers are there and both parronts remember them from their youth !

I'll bring the jelly donuts !

Yesterday turned out nice - daddy thanks everybird for their happy birthday wishes ! I even took a bath for the occasion :) The berry shortcake sure was yummy - me and mom make a great team in the kitchen ! And berries make beautiful wall decorations ! har har har !

A few scattered showers today so mom is only going as far as the library later on. It's supposed to clear up later so that we can have a cookout. We're trying to squeeze as many as possible in before mom goes back to school and the days get cooler and shorter . . .

Have a wonderful toosday ! love you ! Cookie

and his buddy Apache before heading home for his daddy's birthday today ! He and mom are going to make a berry shortcake - mom picked up not only strawberries yesterday, but blackberries, raspberries and blueberries too ! I can't wait to help with that ! ! ! har har har :) Of course I love opening presents too - and I know daddy will need my help with the wrapping paper !

You have a fun day too :) love Cookie

  hey pal !
looks like a perfect summer day ! We need to make the most of it cause there won't be too many more !

The air feels so good here ! The humidity has dropped and so has the temps - in fact we haven't had to turn on the a/c in a couple days :) Mom went to school yesterday and put the finishing touches on her decorating. Now she's done except for things with names, and doesn't have to return till Sept. 2 for her meetings !

Then, I ended up playing with mom's grand-nephew yesterday - the lady who usually watches him while mom's niece works (retail) fell and hurt her knee. Since it was his mom's last day (she starts a new job on Sept. 8 in an insurance office - better, more regular hours), she couldn't call out. After dinner last night she and daddy and Landon went to the park to play on the playground ! Do you know how many years it's been since mom climbed monkey bars and slid down slides ? I would have loved to see that ! har har har !

love Cookie

  Apache and Cookie munch on their donuts
and look out the window to see what kind of day today will be . . . they want to get as much pool time in as possible before summer is over ! And that's soon :(

Hooray for Friday ! It means mom finishes up in her room today - she has only her eggs to put in the nest outside her door (4H is "egg"ceptional). Everything else like her job board baseballs (Pitch In), the cupcakes for her birthday board and the the fall leaves for the kids to decorate, daddy is working on cutting over the next week . . . that means she doesn't have to go back now till Sept. 2 for her faculty meetings . . .

I'm on my way - I'll even stop and pick us up some jelly donuts for breakfast on my way !

Just one more steamy day . . . by tonight the storms are supposed to arrive and hopefully cool things down !

Mom just about finished her room ! She definitely be done by tomorrow. Today she'll do the final two bulletin boards (she has 5 in her room - 2 large and 3 small) and the hallway, then tomorrow just organizing - that will leave her free till she goes on the 2nd and 3rd for meetings.

I had just a teeny tiny bath yesterday - mom took it away since all I was doing was filling up my measuring cup with water and trying to toss it out onto the floor ! har har har ! Doesn't she realize messes are fun ?

We've got another scorcher on our agenda today ! Still mom will go do some work in her classroom this morning - yesterday she went in, and tired of the room arrangement, pushed around furniture, tried it out from different angles making sure everyone had good visibility, pushed it around again, tried different seating, and then just for good measure, she tried a third arrangement. Well, guess what ? After almost three hours ? She put it right back to its original setup ! ! What a dork ! I hope she learned that she shouldn't try to fix what's not broken ! Besides, it'll all still be fresh to the new 4th graders !

Then she stopped at the library on her way home and we spent the rest of the day reading and playing - only it was too hot to go out :(

I therefore, am ready for a playdate at your house if it's OK with aunt Deb ? The pool sounds real inviting in this weather !

My mommy said to tell your mommy thank you very much for the sweet get well cards. She's healing and has a better doctor now. What a relief.
Lets take Busy to the castle grounds and ride some war ponies. That will be fun. Jedi,Cheyenne and Jet want to go along with us...

  Hey Apache bro !
Busy day in my house today ! Me and mom are doing laundry and getting things packed for our vacation in Skaneateles - I have to supervise to make sure she doesn't forget my favorites !

The weather doesn't look like it's sure about what it wants to do while we're gone . . . I'll just have to keep my wings crossed that I'll get my porch time . . . I sure will miss all my friends while I'm gone - mom is bringing the laptop in case she can get to town and maybe find a signal at the library . . .

If not though (no signal where the house is at the end of a mile long unpaved road through a farm field !) Have a great week and see you next weekend ! love Cookie

let's see if we can let loose the dragons in the castle dungeon to scare everybird ! har har har !

c/p



Mom and dad had a great time last night and (drumroll . . . ) came home with a birdie bag ! ! ! That means mom doesn't have to cook tonight - there's enough for another meal !

Of course, silly mom made a great big mistake last night ! ! ! When they got home we sat to watch some tv and mom left the remote within beak's reach ! ! I got several of those soft rubbery buttons before she realized it ! har har har !

The folks are watching the 10 day forecast pretty closely for upstate NY to decide when to leave for vacation - luckily since it's a family cabin they have flexibility. Since there's NOTHING to do when it rains and I'm happiest out on my screened in porch, they want to pick the nicest stretch of weather . . .

Have a lovely day ! Cookie

TGIF!!! I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your votes and support. What an awesome month we had. Time sure does fly by when we have fun.Thank you auntie Mary,Auntie Teri and auntie Gail for the awesome pictures. Thank you Kiddo for giving me this honor and thank you Falco for the nomination !!! I love you all!

Navajo code talkers conclusion
Recruiters visited the Navajo rez and selected 30 code talkers. One dropped out so 29 started the program.Many of these were young Navajos who never left the Rez,making the transition to military life more difficult.Yet they perserved.
They would work night and day helpingto create the code.Once the first 29 were finished,two remained behind to train future Navajo code talkers.
The program was successful.The entire Navajo Nation had 50,000
people.By the end of the war 420 Navajo men worked as code talkers !!!

I salute all the Navajo Code talkers and our U.S soldiers. Please say a prayer for our military. They work hard to protect all of us and our freedom !!!

Much love to all of you
Love Panther Your Cheyenne Chief

I'm taking all my flocks blogging time. Thank you for your patience.

Happy Thursday !!! Did I throw you off with those questions? It was all in fun and games heehee! I did say I was going to surprise you...Raffi got every answer right !!! Congrats Raffi!

In honor of our U.S military...Today I'm going to talk about Navajo Code Talkers. They are from the Navajo nation...

In U.S history the things that happened to us Native Americans were tragic.Invaders and settlers took most of our lands and misunderstood our culture and killed us in the thousands.
Then during World War 2 ,the U.S goverment needed our Navajo Brothers to help.And though they suffered greatly from this same government our Navajo brothers proudly answered the call to duty.

Communication is very essential during any War.
Codes were often used,but broken.In 1942 a man named Philip Jonhston thought of a code that would be un breakable by the enemy.
A code based on the Navajo Language...

Be here for the conclusion tommorow...
Thank you for your votes
Love
Panther

PS Watch wind talkers starring Nicholas Cage.Awesome movie about the Navajo code talkers !!!

Another pool day ! Look out ! CANNONBALL . . . .

Daddy was driving down our road yesterday and got worried cause there was a small bird in the middle of the road. He pulled over and saw it was a blue jay fledgling . . . he walked over to urge it back to the grass so it wouldn't get hit. Then he sat in the car (in the heat with the engine off so it wouldn't be spooked) for almost half an hour to make sure its mommy was around . . .

Happy Humpday !!!

My skin sis is once again typing for me while I sit on my mommy's shoulder and dictate.
My mommy's really strong and healing well from her surgery...
I'm glad you liked my blog to you yesterday.
Truthfully I wasn't sure how a lot of you would respond to it !!! The response was awesome !!! Today I'm taking you to school. It's all about questions and answers.

What color represents death ???
What color represents life ???
What color represents power ???

Who is MAH-HEY-YOH ???
What are the four directions ???
What is sage and cedar used for and how is it used ???

What are the different catagories in Powwow dancing ???

Whats the difference between traditional Powwows and non traditional Powwows ???

What two types of Powwows are there ???

Why do we have a special day for our Elders ???

At what age does a boy become a warrior ???

What reservation do we come from and where is it ???

Who are those awesome birds in my photo gallery ???

Who is that boy dancing in a Powwow ???

What is the favorite food of all Native American tribes ???

Put on your thinking caps and give me your answers.

Tomorrow I will be starting an awesome blog for all of you.

Thank you for your votes

let's bring some cold drinks out to the pool ! We can laze on the rafts and just relax a while . . .

We're still caught up in the tropical heat wave ! 94 yesterday with high humidity - hotter today - or so the weather guessers say . . . at least it keeps mom close to home ! In fact yesterday she ventured as far as the library and came home with a stack of books so I think she's planning on staying here :)

Did you hear that Dixie and Kallie's mom and dad will be visiting aunt Tanya later in the month ? I say all the moms should have a get together !

  Hey Bro Apache and flock
Thank's for liking my picture !!!

Happy Tuesday !!!

The puter is fixed for now and my skin sis will be typing my blogs for me as I dictate to her while I'm sitting on my mommys shoulder preening my mommy's hair.

Thank you all for sending your heart felt prayers and get well wishes to my mommy. The surgery went well and was way better than her last surgery. Now she's resting her shoulder and making the skin sibs do everything.Heehee !!!

My blogs will be short and they will get to the point. I'm trying to squeeze in as much as I can for my campaine and for you...

Today I'm taking you to a very touchy subject. Something most hoomans don't like to think or talk about but it's real and part of our circle of life...

Traditionl Northern Cheyenne Burials.

In my tribe the color white is the color of death. We use white when our loved ones go to the other side.
Burial clothes are made with soft white doe hide and the moccasins are baby soft.
The reason for this is when we all go to the other side we walk into the light where its all white and bright.When we arrive in the consel of elders with MAH-HEY-YOH we arrive being born again. Thats the reason why we use soft buckhide as soft as a baby's skin.

Black is the color of power and red is the color of life that runs through our veins.

When a tribal member or loved one goes to the other side we bathe them for their journey and bless them. We mourn for four days and nights, Some of us may cut ourselfs to ease the pain of the loss and some of us cut our hair to ease the pain of our loss. In my tribe long hair is an honor to have especially with the men.

After four day's and nights of mounrning we bury our departed one sitting up so when they arrive in the counsel of elders they will be sitting in the sacred circle with them. Mah-Hey-Yoh will then judge the our departed who has moved on to the other side.

Our tribal medicine man and holy man will then pray for four day's and nights. After they recieve thier answer they will tell us which consel or departed ones will go into.All of our departed will forever be happy and not suffer. We will then have a celebration with lots of food for them.

This is part of my world that not too many people outside of my tribe know about...
I'm sharing this with you.
Remember death is part of life in our circle. Be good,Do good and never lie or hurt or harm anyone. Always listen to our creator and obey his words to us. If you listen closely will hear a soft gentle loving voice whispering in your ear. You will know it's the creator. And also always remember in time of war when we are forced to kill we will be held in high honor here in this world and up in the stars where we all will be. There's never an end to life.
There's always a new beginning...

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

It's heating up again - we're supposed to be near triple digits by mid-week . . . maybe I'll stay here with you and just relax IN the pool !

What a great time we had at the powwow last night ! A great big shout out to Panther, Kiddo, Taz and Lizzie for all the fine food and ceremonies ! You missed a good one !

Mom and dad were home pretty early (3:30) yesterday so mom made a berry tart - and I got to sample the berries (raspberries, blueberries and blackberries) before they were cooked ! Because of the crumble mom put on the top, I couldn't try it after :( She was trying to find a recipe to make that tart she found at the farm bakery when she visited your mom . . . close but no chicken !

Good thing I'm hanging with you ! Mom and dad are heading up to the g'parronts today - g'pa fell out of bed yesterday and daddy wants to figure out how to prevent it happening again - maybe push the bed against the wall or move g'pa's recliner next to the bed . . .

Either way mom will head to the big farm stand up there and get lots of yummy things to eat ! We should take a rest so we'll be ready for the powwow tonight !

Before I say anything I would like to introduce you to my second oldest brother Circling Eagle Bigfoot...He's the dancer on my profile picture. My mommy made everything he's wearing.
We all call him Eagle for short heehee !!!
Eagle is my second oldest skin bro. And on this picture he was only 7 years old. The elders in my family taught him to dance the right way.
He's a Northern Traditional dancer and being on the Powwow Trail all his life he started winning in Powwow dance competitions all over the US.
He is also well known and respected throughout the Powwow circut and Native American land.

My mommy went to Bank of America in Norco and she saw a painting of him on the banks wall.
It said young Native American boy. My mommy contacted the artist Francis Frazier who took a picture of him dancing and she said she had been working on painting his picture for many years and his picture traveled all over the U.S with her...
Anyway my mommy wanted to buy the picture from Francis but she said it was sold to a customer who wanted it. BUMMMER !!!
She told my mommy she would have given it to her...

Let me get back on track now heehee !!!
I'm going to talk to you about Powwows.
There is Northern protocol and Southern protocol Powwows. My tribe is Northern so our powwows we go to are all Northern protocal Powwows...

We have a variety of dance catagories such as Northern Traditional, Northern grass dance, Men's Northern fancy dance...
The women have womens Northern traditional buck hide or cloth dresses, Jingle dress dance, and womens Northern Fancy shawl dresses...

Some powwows are traditional and social and some powwows are contest and pay off with big money to the winners...

At Powwows we eat lots of fry bread and Native American tacos and chili stew. At night we are still eating frybread with hot coffee
or hot cocoa.
Every Powwow we went to we always met lots of powwow buddy's who stays our buddy's for life.
Some Powwows last all weekend and some over night.
Being there is awesome and magical with lots of love between different tribes.
A powwow with different tribes are called intertribal...

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

Tomorrow I will continue with the singers and drummers at Powwows

  Hey buddy !
I was beginning to think you, aunt Deb and the rest of the flock went into hiding ! The weather is way to nice to do that ! In fact it's downright glorious here ! Mid-80's, low humidity and tons of sunshine ! The kind of summer days mom remembers from when she was a kid . . .

Mom and dad have been going out every night this week. The church has its Italian Festival going on - it started Tuesday and goes through Sunday - mom calls it her kitchen vacation ! They go to eat each night and then head home to me !

Are you guys going to the Milonga tomorrow night ? What a lot of fun it sounds like !

Come visit me, Cookie getting ready for Saratoga !, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hey Apache and flock
Happy Thursday !!!

Because of lack of time I have to make this blog short and to the point !!!

The Battle of little Big Horn... Custers last stand...

In late 1875 Cheyenne and Sioux Warriors were mad over the continued raids of Custer and his men going into our sacred lands and the black hills...

Our tribes gathered in Montana with great War Chiefs ready to fight for our tribes and our lands.
The following Spring two victories over the U.S calvary gave us strengh and spirit to fight on.

In the summer of 1876 was Custers last stand...
Custer and his men came to raid our camps and kill more of us.
Thinking there was only women, elders and children there they rode their horses into a trap !!!

As they approached what they thought was a camp with women, elders and children they got surrounded and out numbered by warriors from my tribe and the Sioux...

On that day only 60 warriors were killed and 262 men with Custer were killed in less than an hour.
What a time of victory it was for us !!!

History say's that Custer's body was found unmutilated and naked.
No thats not the truth...Custers body was never found !!! He was seen being killed. By our Warriors. But his body never found...
Some beleive that Custers body was put into a mass grave with his fallen men !!!
He dose not deserve a decent burial with honors and recognition.
Custer was by all means a coward and a cold blooded killer !!!

To this day the warriors have passed down from generation to generation. The sacred hat and clothing that belonged to Custer.
He was stripped naked when he died so the warriors could stake claim and victory !!! One of our tribe's are the keepers of the sacred hat...I can't tell you who because of the sacred vow of silence we made in those matters...

So the elders told us that's what really went down.Generations upon generations of our families have been told the real truth.
Trust me your hearing this first hand from real elders that were there and witnessed the battle. We are the real deal !!!
This is told the same way from generation to generation.

To this present day my tribe will go to the sight where we won victory over Custer and offer sage to our fallen warriors.
When it's quite we can hear the ghosts screaming out in the battle field and when we close our eyes the spirits of our fallen Warriors will take us with them on the battle feild and we can see things that went down that nobody outside of our tribes can see...

Like we all say History is a lie agreed upon. How do these so called historians know if they were not there ??? They just agree upon things because they don't know...They all guess at it and agree upon it.

Thank you for your votes

  Hey Apache and flock
I already have Oz on my elder list !!! How's it going bro ???
I hope your mommy's doing fine too. We send her our prayers and love...

Happy Humpday !!!

I had a change of dates for The Gathering of Elders PowWow...It will be on the milonga page on Saturday July 25th...Indian time heehee !!! I'll let you know what time when we get it set up.

Anyone who knows an elder or if you are an elder please go to the milonga page and leave the elders name and page number.

Also if any of you would like to adopt an elder or more please go to the milonga page and leave your name and page number and who you would like to adopt.

Because of lack of time I'm going to take you through a quick truth about the Custer and the 7th calvary battle. The blogs are kind of short but true.These are true accounts passed down from generation to generation of elders in my tribe and elders in my family who was actually there. NOT HISTORY BOOKS !!!

Eyewitness accounts of The battle of little BigHorn...

When the 7th calvary made their way to Native American land they came with one intent. Genecide ,wipe us out !!!
They would wait for the warriors to leave camp and go on hunting parties. Then Attack !!!

The Women,children and elders would always stay behind and wait.
Once they were left alone Custer and his army of killers would raid our camps with no warriors there to defend the women,children and elders.

Custer had no mercy on my tribe and family. Custer and the 7th calvary would rape and kill the women and torture them and the elders by skinning them alive and make lamp shades and tents from their skin.They would throw babies and children in the fire alive and laugh as they screamed in agony and they had the nerve to laugh at them while they went through this torture dying.

My great,great,great grandfather had told my family and tribe on how they could smell burning flesh for miles and miles away. By the time the warriors would come back home from their hunting parties the whole camp would be burned down to the ground and everyone was dead.

For many generations Custer was called a hero. Do you call that a hero ???

This is a heartfelt series I'm sharing with you and my mommy stops to cry while typing thses blogs for me as she remembers the truth that has been told to her and tribal and family members for generations.

When Custer and his army of cowards won a war it was called a victory. When any of the Native Americans won the war it was called a slaughter.

All this would lead to the Battle of Little Bighorn...

To be continued tomorrow...

Thank you for your heartfelt votes and listening to the voices of our elders...

Love Panther

  Hey Apache and flock
Happy Tuesday !!!

We had a total of three blackouts...I hope that's all over with...We enjoyed the rain so much. It's clean and fresh and SO-CAL needed it !!!

Today I'm going to talk to you about the Gathering of elders...

Almost all Native American tribes love their elders...
On my rez we have a special day for our elders called the Gathering of elders. We do this once a year to honor and appreciate our elders.
On this special day we shower our elders with gifts,food and lot's of love.

Our elders are like diamonds to us and without them our traditional ways and culture would be gone forever. They tell us everything that happened generations ago so we can pass it on and it never get's lost.

If our tribe has an elder with no family we take them in and they spend the rest of their life with the family that takes them in.
We make sure they are happy,well cared for and loved.
We never send our elders to a retirement home as in some cultures they do that.

We never disrespect an elder and we never talk back. They deserve great respect and love and honor. We love them all !!!

Tomorrow I will be posting names of BC elders on my page.

Please adopt an elder and give me your name and their name. You will be able to hang out with them on The Gathering of elders day that will be on Friday the 24TH...

You may adopt a total of four elders per flock or bird and the same elder can also be adopted by different flocks...This is in no way a competition. It's all about our elders and the love we have for them.
If any of you know an elder or are an elder please give me the name so I can put you on my page tomorrow.
You must be 15 years old and up. We are going by bird years not hooman years heehee !!!

After all it's their day !!! Let's make it a special celebration for them !!!

Thank you for your votes
Love
Panther

I will try to get their pictures posted in my gallery !!!

  Hey Apache and flock
So sorry about the delay. We had another power outage that lasted all day,all night and almost all morning.We got slammed with rain and my backyard had three feet of water in it. We loved it !!!
Don't forget to fly by the KB to the KB to join in Sky and BB'S wedding celebration. There's lots of good food and fun !!!

Trick marriage continued...

Kiddo tells his brothers Cappy,Pearl and Silver to ride ahead of him so he can keep an eye on them.

Kiddo follows his brothers back to camp and he goes straight to Tall Bulls lodge. Kiddo presents Tall Bull with his gift. Tall Bull asks Kiddo to tell him about his gifts.
Kiddo says a pure white mustang is sacred. I'm bringing back four of them to you to complete the four directions.

But most of all the love they have for each other is pure. And the bond they have as a family is sacred.I rescued them and kept them together. Everything is sacred and pure...

Tall Bull smiles and say's you did good. You also rescued your brothers from our enemies the Crow Nation.You are brave and honorable...

You have my blessings to marry Sweet Pepper !!!

Kiddo invites Sweet Pepper over to eat and talk.
Sweet Pepper arrives not knowing whats going to happen.
Kiddo makes her a meal and he watches her eat it.
When she's finished Kiddo picks her up and kisses her.
He then carries her to the front door of his lodge and both their families and the whole tribe gives them their blessing..

Sweet Pepper asks Kiddo what's going on ???
Kiddo gently smiles at Sweet Pepper and say's we are married. I tricked you by making you a meal and you ate it !!!

Sweet Pepper say's a trick marriage ??? Kiddo hangs his head wondering how mad she is at him. But to his surprise Sweet Pepper
Gives him a big kiss and say's I was wondering if you loved me. I'm happy cause I love you too !!!

The happy couple look out the door of their lodge and see Jen and Kacey smiling at them.

Kiddo's three brothers Cappy,Pearl and Silver are playing drums for them while everyone puts gifts in front of their lodge.

Kiddo say's this is a good marriage and we will be together forever...

Thank you for your votes

  Hey Apache
Happy Sunday !!! Our power finally came back on but I don't know for how long...We are expecting more rain today and Monday. Hopefully with no power outages. We love the rain and we need it...

Trick marriage continued...

As Kiddo walks in the crow camp it's quite and all his enemies are sleeping. Kiddo looks around and starts planning on a rescue plan for the white mustang family...
Kiddo prays and asks Mah -Hey-Yoh to guide him and help him. There are hundresds of Crows there and only one of him. Being the strong Brave Warrior he is he walks around the crow camp with pride.

Kiddo say's to himself I can't figure this out. There's so many of them and only one of me !!!
Suddenly Kiddo hears three small voices whispering Kiddo help !!!

Kiddo looks around and he finds his brothers Cappy, Pearl and Silver tied up to a wooden stake. Kiddo quickly runs over to them to let them go. Kiddo say's why are you three here taken prisoners by the Crow ??? Cappy tells Kiddo we followed you to help you... In our dreams we saw you getting eaten by the Crows!
We also saw you in your sleep holding on to your medicine pouch asking that you get home safely so you can marry Sweet Pepper. Kiddo asks did you say anything to Sweet Pepper ??? This is a trick wedding.All three brothers say no.

Kiddo say's I want you to distract the crows and take three of their fastest War Pony's. I will meet you on top of the mountain under the hidden tree.Stay there and wait for me and stay out of trouble !!!

Kiddo sits behind the corral where the white mustang family is trapped.Cappy,Pearl and Silver jump on three of the crows fastest war ponies and call the Crows out !!! The Crows start to chase the three brothers into the hills. Kiddo quickly jumps on the white mustangs son and he leads the mother and daughter out of the corrals.

After they are out of the crow camp Kiddo opens his medicine pouch and throws clear shining stones in his brothers direction. The stones turns into a big shield and puts protection around his brothers so they can make it home safely.

Trick marriage continued tomorrow and following Trick marriage will be Sky and BB's wedding tomarrow...

Thank you for your votes Love Panther
