BACKSTORY: After the Descendents concert, we were hanging out in the parking lot waiting for it to clear out a bit before heading to the next venue for the ALL concert. Some poor girl asked us if we had jumper cables, and of course we did. She was very grateful and said, "You are like the 50th person we asked!" (What's with people not carrying jumper cables anymore? You sad, unprepared fucks!)
Anyway, while Clint was helping them, he found a frog in the parking lot. Ok, actually a toad, but still. ALL has a song called Frog, and they talk about catching a frog, and the difficulties of trying to sell it. And now we had a frog! What are the odds. Clint tried to sell the frog, but nobody wanted to buy it, as predicted by the song. The frog in the song is named Oscar, so naturally, this frog's name is now Oscar.
Oscar had an eventful evening that night. He went from the parking lot at the Festival Pier in Philadelphia to a parking garage at the next venue, spent a night in New Jersey, came back to Virginia, met our kitties, and now lives in our back yard where he has a lot of space and a creek... And no parking lots or boats mosh pits.
Kindness to animals
Image by National Library of Scotland
A sergeant, wrapped in his greatcoat against the cold, reading a notice nailed to a tree. The notice reads, 'Kindness to animals, 500 horses lamed weekly by nails dropped on roads and horse lines by cookers carrying firewood with nails left in. Please remove nails'. Much of the firewood used at the Front would have been timber salvaged from ruined buildings, so nails would have been a considerable problem.
The army during World War I was very dependant on horses and mules for transport of guns, ammunition and other heavy goods, as well as for the cavalry. They could not afford needless casualties even though, at the rate of 500 lamed per week, this was still less than one percent of the total of over 2,500,000 horses treated in 1914 alone.
