  Hi Jetta
Today was 79 and cloudy. It rained a little and then the sun came out. By late afternoon, we had a mini t-storm with sun after. Then a little rain at dinner. Not a bad day. The parronts got a lot done with my supervision help of course. I think I deserve an extra treat for all that work!

  Hey Jetta
It's all about heat, humidity, and rain today. Do you want an egg fried on the sidewalk? I made a dozen just for you !

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 !!!

  Hi JeTTa
It's Popeye.
Dad does not sit in donut shops. He prefers to stand.
Mom and dad went to the movies and saw Entourage. Dad didn't care for it. He said it was dumb.
We had a power outage last night. It lasted about 3 hours. Now poor dad has to reset everything. So this will be a short blog today.
The high will be 89 and the low will be 66, with a chance of rain.
Hope your day is fun.

  Hey Jetta
Panther is here !!! Heehee !!!

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

PS...Hang around for more blogs !!!

  Hi sweet Jetta man-from LaLo & dad
Ms LaLo's Vet visit went very well, her injured wing is healing nicely and the two damaged feather follicles are recovering, and at least two new pinfeathers are coming in! The Vet complimented dad on her diet, her blood work was perfect, and showed absolutely nothing wrong in her system! Poor old dad didn't make out so well, the heat and humidity wore him out and after getting LaLo back on her cage top, he went out in the kitchen to straighten things up a little, but he fell and was down for nearly 3 hours! He took his cane and knocked the truck keys on the floor, and pushed the horn honker button! Our neighbor man came over and got him back on his feet, but now he is very sore all over! Only a few notes today, he has designated this a day of rest and recovery, love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Please do not worry about us, love from Ms LaLo Lee & dad

Kiddo here, filling in for my frother in feathers, Panther. His mom called and their puter is still down, so I am using his log on to continue his campaign for him at least for today and tomorrow when his mom is going in for her surgery. She thinks she will be back to blogging the day after that, but my mom had the same surgery and says she is smoking something funny in her peace pipe if she thinks she will be up to blogging that quick! We shall see.

Anyway Panther has had such an interesting campaign for us this month with a lot to learn about our Northern Cheyenne Native Americans. He wanted to ask each of you what is the most interesting thing you have learned about them this month?

Thanks for voting for Panther,

First of all, what a fabulous Pow Wow Milonga last night it was once again presented so well, and it looked like all our dearest friends were having a great time! I wish I could have stayed longer, but dad was so tired and had some birdsonal LaLo business to take care of! We want to thank Kiddo, SP, Lizzie,Taz, and aunt Gail for all the pics and preps, and of course our dear aunt Staci Bigfoot for having us all, you did well sweetheart, Panther can be proud of his Cheyene tribe and family!

  Hi JeTTa
We are trying! Our realtor know what we are looking for. He sends us houses to look at almost every day. Dad is also looking on Zillow. When we see one that we like, he goes and checks it out and sends his video to us. Dad didn't want to fly down unless it's a good one.
As for those nasty snakes. How come mom has been to FL different times of the year and never had a problem going outside? She never even saw one in her path!
I think they are trying to scare her as many are trying to talk her out of moving to FL. It can't be that bad as they say ... no one can get out of their house cause there are so many snakes! We need to stock up on snake-b-gone!
