busy weekend: day 1, part 1

once again we had another busy weekend but it was a fantastic one to say the least!  
On Friday I slept in a bit, trying to catch up on some much needed rest!
This is what the little man was doing while he was waiting for me to wake up, cute huh? lol

we headed up to the local military base so that Riley could see the geese.  I grew up an "army brat" and some of my favorite memories of that base were when we would go up and feed bread to the geese.  So, you can imagine my disappointment when I saw THIS!

not to worry, but I went ahead and fed them anyway!  It just wasn't quite as exciting as I had remembered.... I broke the bread up and threw it all at once for fear of getting caught! Lol
Regardless they appreciated it!



we took Riley to look at the Buffalo Soldier Monument


and more geese for Riley to play with



most soldiers come to this base for the college, that's the college in the background, pretty huh?

stay tuned for more of the weekend!

Looks like fun! The weather was GREAT here too. We fed the geese and ducks at the zoo this past weekend... totally legal! ;o)

Buffalo Soldier 9 said...

Keep telling that history:

Read the novel, Rescue at Pine Ridge, where Buffalo Bill Cody meets a Buffalo Soldier. A great story of Black military history...the first generation of Buffalo Soldiers. Five stars Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the youtube trailer commercial...and visit the website http://www.rescueatpineridge.com

How do you keep a people down? ‘Never' let them 'know' their history.

The 7th Cavalry got their butts in a sling again after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn't for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry.

I know you’ll enjoy the novel. I wrote the story that embodied the Native Americans, Outlaws and African-American/Black soldiers, from the south to the north, in the days of the Native American Wars with the approaching United States of America. This story is about, brutality, compassion, reprisal, bravery, heroism and gallantry. The story shows the truism to the fullest of a PG-14 perspective...with a DVD release to show the fullest reality of war. Read the novel, Rescue at Pine Ridge, the story of the rescue of the famed 7th Cavalry by the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers.

The novel was taken from my mini-series movie of the same title, “RaPR” to keep my story alive. Hollywood has had a lot of strikes and doesn’t like telling our stories…its been “his-story” of history all along…until now. The movie so far has attached, Bill Duke directing, Hill Harper, Glynn Turman and a host of other major actors in which we are in talks with…see imdb.com at; http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0925633/

When you get a chance, also please visit our Alpha Wolf Production website at; http://www.alphawolfprods.com and see our other productions, like Stagecoach Mary, the first Black Woman to deliver mail for Wells Fargo in Montana, in the 1890's, “spread the word”.

Peace.
