Takes me back.  Elders riding herd on all us little ones with their story telling.   Sometimes they told them with sounds too.  Often bird calls.   I recall some of the singing was in the elders languages, which we younguns weren't allowed.  It was the world we lived in.  Everyone else was dead.   But not all things of those now gone, died with them.   I appreciate Olena telling the world of her culture!   Thanks for this, Rayvn!

You're most welcome McG. I'm glad you liked it and it brought back a memory or two for you. :smiley:

Lol...I can imagine sitting around a fire listening to someone telling a story and she's back off in the woods howling like a wolf or some bird sounds. It could get exciting - LOL.

Good morning to all and have a great day. Are we looking for this one yet??  :spring:

That's quite the prehistoric looking Dust Bunny eater, Agent.

Hmmmm, are there prehistoric Dust Bunnies? Don't know that I've seen a fossil of one.

nature's clean up crew  without them we would have a stinking  mess on our hands and they are good looking birds except for their bald head

They are a good looking bird true!  So is the Black Vulture.   Mostly we called them Buzzards and Vultures.   Both are BIG birds, big wings they can lock for just soaring the wind currents.    Be nice to get pics of some on the ground, standing next to a human maybe.  Just to get an idea of how big BIG is with them.  :)

Turkey Vultures aren't exactly beautiful birds, at close range they stink like a bloated dog on the highway drying in the sun. I've seen them up close and personal after my brother-in-law caught one in a trap.

If one bites or scratches you and breaks the skin, you're going to the ER for a round of shots for sure! They are about as tall as a wild Turkey but have twice the wingspan unlike the wild Turkey, which is only built for short distance flight.

They are very common here in Southern Ohio and VERY protected. Shoot one and it'll cost ya a $500 fine plus Court costs! They keep the banks of the mighty Ohio River clean and can be seen around the river at any time of day.

I recall my maternal grandparents going to Panama City, Florida for a Family Gathering.   My cousin and I, both 6, were going too.  Four adults and two kids in a 64 Ford Fairlane.  Thank goodness for bench seats!   We spent two weeks there, stayed with relatives had a place with some room.  Mind you, it was a old family built sprawling wood on blocks house, no paint, with barn tin roof.   Didn't leak.  Wallpaper was various.  News papers, Sears, Penny, whatever they had that looked alright with the Great great grandparents.   Bathroom was 'outback' of the house.  Daytime saw me and cousin Lynn playing our hearts out.  Hey, it was nice beach sand, some woods with a variety of trees, a little grass.   Evening time, other family showed up.  They were from all over.  This was in 64.   I learned a few names, didn't see any young kids my age.  Older ones, teens like.  And everyone was so tired, welcomed good hot meals and a comfy cool place to sleep.   Those older kids plus me and Lynn were the main reason for the gathering.  The custom was to meet every two years if possible, swap news, meet the younguns, long family visit.  Not exactly a 'reunion'.   Guess it was just for our Family.  Folks stayed as long or short as they wanted to.   I recall two of those trips, and the second one, I was pleased to visit with the kin, listen to all the stories, "sit at the Elders feet and learn."  The things I heard, that we all heard, went to shape lives, Ray. 
Things changed, and folks just stopped doing those gatherings.   Sure wish they had continued.   I reckon that was the old way, before the Telephone became a common thing in almost every home.
I am grateful that I have those experiences and memories.   They were the last of a kind I think.

I don't think it mattered where our elders lived, they were a doorway to a different time and different ways. Not all of them were good and not all were bad. They were what they were and we all learned from them hopefully. At least all those great old axioms we were all raised on that got immutably stuck in our heads for a lifetime.
