Good 41º clear sunny morning.
Yesterday we topped at 82º.
My heart is broken. My sweet cat Bruiser left here early Friday morning and has never returned. I am sure something bad happened to him, as he never in the last 12 years has done this. I miss him and hate dealing with this.
Love you Bruiser. Rest in peace.
Picture of the Day
Interesting about Tecumseh ...
Tecumseh was a Shawnee chief in the Ohio Territory. He lived from March 1768 to 5 October 1813. Growing up during the American Revolutionary War and the Northwest Indian War, Tecumseh was exposed to warfare and envisioned the establishment of an independent Indian nation east of the Mississippi River under British protection.
Tecumseh was among the most celebrated Shawnee leaders in history and was known as a strong and eloquent orator who promoted tribal unity. Tecumseh's confederation fought against the United States during Tecumseh's War, but he was unsuccessful in getting the U.S. government to rescind the Treaty of Fort Wayne (1809) and other land-cession treaties. In 1811, as he traveled south to recruit more allies, his brother Tenskwatawa defended their settlement against William Henry Harrison's army at the Battle of Tippecanoe, but the Native Americans retreated from the field. Although Tecumseh remained, the Native American alliance was never fulfilled.
In 1813, the British and their Native American allies retreated into Upper Canada, where the European American forces engaged them at the Battle of the Thames on October 5, 1813, and Tecumseh was killed. His death and the end of the war caused the pan-Indian alliance to collapse. Since his death Tecumseh has become an iconic folk hero in American, Indigenous, and Canadian history.
