Name Calling

Language is such a dynamic process. Everything effects it. From parents, school, TV, what region one lives in, and to what activities one is in involved in and everything in between...from how we pronounce words to what words we are pronouncing...all are accumulated throughout our lives.

Ya hay bag, where the hell have you been lately? A horsey friend of mine bellowed across the Super Wal-Mart parking lot. Yes, she called me a hay bag...must be some equine equivalent to ho bag. Although there is most definitely a big difference between a hay bag, something used to keep hay hung up in, and a ho bag.

A hay net...cheaper version of a hay bag. I know some.

A friend's Paint horse enjoying his hay bag. Bet he never calls his mommy one.

I am home getting ready to go to two job interviews today...and a stupid robin is still flying into one of my bay windows. Which it has been doing since 7AM...and I am seriously wondering how much drain bamage it is going to end up with.

Aniin Cowgirl,

Good luck on the job interviews today. What's in a name? I'm pretty opaque when it comes to names and labels.

We have mirrored windows, we get birds strikes all the time.

Have to repeat the comment that I love what you said on Sar's Brawl yesterday about race. I got your back any time.

Tommorrow I have a link to you, see you then.

amiigwech for your friendship.

Y'learn something new every day online. Don't think there's much of a link between "hay" and "ho". If there is, you and your "friend" may wish to have a talk.

Doubt the bird will get much brain damage, it doesn't weigh enough. And it's probably not hitting the window at full speed. Much more likely the fool thing will break its neck. Even that's not too likely unless it plays dive bomber, or is fleeing in a panic from something.

Hope those interviews went the way you wished them to.

Hey, we are using those hay nets a lot. Especially over the winter. In the summer tehy come down as the horses just go out and return inside sometime in September.
Me and my sister used a hay net on her oldest child 7 two weeks ago. We put him in it and put it up, teasing him and hoping for a minute of peace. He managed to get out of it in about two minutes, smiling ever so proudly. There is nothign that can contain that boy!
