New things strewn upon the ground
I made a wish, or was it two
I never dreamed they could come true
But what's this, hankies, socks and shoes?
I made a wish, or was it three!
Doesn't anybody care about me?
Wait smell that turkey, stuffing and spuds
Look at the fruit and puddings so good
Those wishes I made, four or five
You know it's really good to be alive
But where are the lost and lonely people?
Can they hear the prayers mist local steeple
Those wishes I made, six or seven
Can it be I'm somewhere in heaven?
One of many trees that must take the wrath of mother nature. How often you can see this, just being in the wrong place at the wrong time?
Or do you think it is inevitable that this tree would indeed suffer this fate, it was something that must be?
Life is like that you know, if something is going to happen then there is not a damm thing we can do about it. Avoid the obvious pitfalls and walk straight. Could'nt advocate tall as this tree made that mistake??
Not too happy with this picture, looks ok on my computer?
One of the most famous native Americans 'Geronimo' This is photograph that I took with a 35mm camera and you can, when enlarged pick out the truck just to the side of the face.
In the gap underneath is a digger.
There are trips to be up close and personal and I believe that you can get hundreds of people along the proposed outstretched arm.
The horses head painted into the rock formation gives a further indication of the size of the undertaking.
You know since 1998 it looks no different??
Crazy Horse Memorial, the world’s largest sculpture, now in progress, is located in the Black Hills of South Dakota on US Highway 16/385 just 17 miles southwest of Mount Rushmore. The work was begun in 1948 by sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski at the request of Native Americans. Korczak died in 1982. His wife, Ruth, and their family continue the project working with the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation.
The Memorial includes the Indian Museum of North America, the Native American Cultural Center which was dedicated at the 1996 Native American Day celebration, the sculptor’s studio, as well as a new 40,000-square-foot Orientation Center and theaters opened in May 2000. Many Native American artists and crafts people create their artwork and visit with guests at the Memorial during the summer season.
During the night we stood outside and gazed in amazement at the strange neon glow that surrounded the trees. Was this the end?
The following day everyone got up really early to see what would happen next. Now every tree took on a metallic appearance. This may have been a work of art if it weren't so sad.
Who would have thought that the answer could have been so simple? Yes, cover the trees in plastic film.
