International Misunderstanding

The residents of the town of Ramsey on the Isle of Man in the UK decided that they would partner (we call them Sister Cities) with the town of Novokutznetsk in Russia. The Manx population was very happy, as were the residents of Novokutznetsk. A large, joint celebration was planned in both towns.

To commemorate the event, the citizens of Ramsey constructed a miniature of their famous “Albert Tower” to go in the city square of Novokutznetsk. In return, the citizens of Novokutznetsk constructed a one-acre garden, using Siberian plants, on North Barrule, the hill overlooking Ramsey. This garden recreated the beauty of the plains surrounding Novokutznetsk.

It was during the ceremony in Ramsey when tragedy struck. A local farmer was herding his cattle down the hill toward town. He didn’t know about the new construction along the path he normally took. The cattle trampled the Siberian plants, the crowd started screaming, further scaring the cattle, and finally, in their headlong rush to get down the hill, the cattle fell over the high terraced edge of the garden, killing most of them.

Yes, it was one small steppe for Man, but one giant leap for Man’s kine.

travel-01I have been in many places, but I’ve never been in Kahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Kahoots with someone.

I’ve also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.capture

I have, however, been in Sane. They don’t have an airport. You have to be driven there. I have made several trips there thanks to my children, friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.

I’ve been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes I’m in Capable. I go there more often as I’m getting older.

One of my favourite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!

I may have been in Continent, but I don’t remember what country I was in. It’s an age thing. They tell me it is very wet and damp there.
