Cape Sparrow life.
Small and cheeky little birds, but also cute. The bad guy arrived to claim the biscuit.
The mom and the two babies were feasting on a biscuit when this cheeky guy arrived to scatter them.
This world is full of rules and if only one could be as free as these little birds. But not to be as the tax man watches every earned cent, the interest rates continue to rise and food prices are skying. You may do this and you may not do that. A cauldron of rules and if one doesn't follow them, punishment awaits. I am drawing up my will and even this last piece of paper is subject to rules. It can't be legal if it's not signed by a lawyer and at a price of course and everything mentioned in it is subject to tax. So you work your whole life and at the end you must pay taxes after you have left the planet. What a moneymaking farce.
Just my little rant and now come and look at real freedom.
The mom discovered the biscuit and she was testing it.
Oh yes, it tasted good and note that she didn't have to pay for it.
As she was flipping the biscuit over for the babies to eat the soft underparts, she and the babies had to flee.
Because the bad guy arrived as you saw in the tag photo.
Another guy came in, but the bad guy is experienced in martial arts and he attacked the other guy.
Now here is the cute part.
I could only get the one baby in the water channel, as the other was lower down. They were having a bath.
Look how wet and cute the little one was.
So the mom at the back and the two babies went to the free suana.
Finally, I waved at them as we left.
So, they don't pay for the food, or the bath, or the sauna and they can come and go as they please. Somehow I think that there was a lesson for me in here and maybe I must move to a place where there are no rules :)
Or maybe they were only showing me the love that exists between a mother and her children. I think that we, all of us in this world were born to be free before they invented the curse of money. To live, work the land and to manage nature. But not to be, as now we are all slaves that struggle to survive. So I say, freedom, where art thou! Dare I say that earth is a big round graveyard?
What are your thoughts?
I hope that you have enjoyed the pictures.
And That's All Friends.

Indeed. I also feel the very real oppression of money. Tax this and that, never mind that the services rendered for that tax money is generally sub-par.
I do not work a bad job. I am not at the bottom of the barrel. And yet more and more I feel the oppressive squeeze that I am not earning enough. What am I supposed to do to make more money other than doing things on the side or looking for a new job... here in a country where half of everyone has no job... a job so we can pay more tax...
A sordid state indeed and service delivery in return for the taxes is almost non existent.
This is one of the reasons why so many are emigrating and it will continue.
But think here of those that have no jobs, millions idle at home and then think about the 400,000 that dropped out of school last year. What will they do for survival?
The future does not look very rosy methinks.
Indeed... so either I need to leave SA if I can... or... try to survive it.
In a perfect world I should be trying to make a difference. But it would mean nothing to try alone.
Never an easy decision mate and you simply have to do what works for you.
Fortunately or unfortunately I don't have a choice, as I am too old to emigrate, and I don't have millions in the bank. So, I have to tough it out, but I am used to a tough life, as I had no father.
We create a difference at Papillon alone and if everyone would try to make a difference, in their own lives and the lives of others, then this world would become a better place.
Or what the judge called a “restraining order”

I am willing to first try rather than flee. I believe in taking responsibility and putting the effort in. If each person contributes, it is fairly easy.
So be it, like I said, it is your choice to make.

Great you are out, slightly better health wise, enjoying yourself watching the birds free to enjoy themselves.
Often wonder what humans would do if only required to supply only for themselves.
Taxes are breaking the backbone of many who are fortunate enough to have a small pension or savings, earning where increases have become a thing of the past.
!LUV stay free, they cannot steal our little pieces of heaven we make.

Thank you and I am one that just cannot sit around and feel sorry for myself. So I disregard the medical situation and carry on with my life. (Slowly of course).
The way that things are going now, many will have to learn how to supply only for themselves. Sadly it is a fertile source for the syndicates, as people are desperate.
So right and it will, or might be manageable if the income is equal, or above the interest rates, but I don't see this happening. Bleeding the shrinking taxpayer base dry.
!LUV also to you guys.

If you live alone, then this is possible. I heard that some people (mostly store workers) put theoretically expired (or even one day old bakery products), but still good food on the streets (mainly in Spain and on the Canary Islands), and there are people, who collect them to eat them. They call this recycling, and they live either in abandoned houses, or in caves. They use either very little money, or no money at all. The food the store workers are throwing away are not sellable, but still edible.
Probably there are other ways/solutions too.
Have a nice day and have a nice weekend.
All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.
It is against the law in South Africa to distribute food that is beyond the expiry date. In the African heat, old food can become contaminated very fast, and we even had some deaths in the past because people ate the food. So that is not an option for us.
The best way is to teach people how to grow their own food and we partner with a non-profit community garden here that has un-employed volunteers to help in the gardens so that they can feed their own families and also distribute vegetables to the poor in their communities.
Hope that you are having a good weekend.
I love sparrows and never mind when they come close to get some food 😀
The first photo is cool showing the arrival of the bad guy 👍 and the others are lovely too, like the little one in the water canal 😊
There are rules for everything and most of the rules are making money for someone. If we were smarter and if we would care more for each other, many rules wouldn't be neccessary.

Oh, I love these little ones, the sparrows taking bath is soo funny and cute. 😀
Speaking about prices, same here, all goes up. For how long, I don't know.
And taxes, mind you, you can't escape from the tax man. Everything is taxed and we are trapped in this reality.
Thank you milady and we agree that they are precious little things.
Everywhere it seems and I think that it will continue until we are all bone dry. People try in many ways to dodge the taxes, but when they are caught, then they lose everything. So the law is to pay up and to suffer. This is not how life is supposed to be.
