The metaphor (or meme) of the squirrel that could cross an entire territory without touching the ground is very old and, as far as the Iberian Peninsula is concerned, is attributed (maybe wrongly) to Strabo.

I have just learned that this meme was also used to describe the ancient North America, and by googling, I found references of the squirrel crossing ancient Gaul and Britain.

What is the first documented use of this meme? To what territory was it applied the first time?


Prologue

The silky cinnamon tabby let out a small purr as she leapt off of the tree, landing smartly on her paws. “You came,” She purred flirtatiously, weaving around the other cat, a tom with fur that blended perfectly into the shadows. If it hadn’t been for her keen sense of smell and his ice-blue eyes, she wouldn’t have seen him.

“Yes, of course I came.” The tom purred, his tone as flirty as hers. He pricked his ears. “Is Maybelle here?”

The tabby shook her head, and an edge of jealousy barbed her words. “That kittypet? No, of course not. Tonight it’s just you and me.” She purred, nuzzling his cheek. The tom let out a purr, and twined his inky black tail with hers.

“Actually,” A third cat snarled, and the hair on the tabby’s short pelt shot straight up, “it’s just the three of us.”

With a screech, the newcomer threw herself at the tabby. She dodged her blow, but her claws were unsheathed and they scraped down her cheek.

The black tom threw himself between the stranger and the tabby, preparing to defend her. The face on the stranger was familiar, and he let out a chuckle, sheathing his claws.

“You’ve improved, Maybelle.” The silky tabby purred, brushing past the dark tom. Maybelle grinned crookedly, sheathing her claws too. “You managed to dodge. You could never dodge before.”

The tabby shrugged, licking a paw and dragging it over an ear coolly. “You aren’t the only one who’s improved, then, are you, Maybelle?” She said. Her voice was light and friendly, but her tone was savage.

“No, I guess not.” Maybelle meowed, just as frostily. “Have you got a problem with that, Drop?” She purred.

Drop narrowed her eyes. “I’ll tell you what I have a problem with-” She growled, but the dark tom interrupted them.

“Stop talking!” He hissed suddenly, diving under a curtain of moss. Drop followed, Maybelle not far behind.

Maybelle sat with her paws tucked under her chest tensely, her ears flattened. Noiselessly, the claws of all three cats slid out at once, and they stared at the curtain of moss.

A silhouette of a feline appeared at the moss curtain. The smells of damp bark and grass must have covered their scent, and the cat turned away.

“No witnesses,” The tom narrowed his eyes at the silhouette. “Dark!” Maybelle protested, but Drop nodded. “No, he’s right.” She meowed, loud enough for the cat to hear. They froze, and Drop exploded out from behind the curtain.

With a slash, the cat crumpled down, blood pooling out of the gash in his neck. Drop recognized the tom, but she only gave his pelt a dismissive nudge and turned away, shaking the blood off her paw.

“Great job, Drop.” Dark purred, weaving around her lovingly. Jealously, Maybelle turned her head, and a spark of satisfaction and triumph bloomed to life in her chest.

Census Sunday

I am going to try to follow along with the daily blog prompts from Geneabloggers.com blogging prompts. But I don't want to get off track with my goal of posting biographical details on all of my lines from William Marshal. So, since George Washington Lilly and Nancy Jane Hayton are first on that next line, I will post some census' for them.

Lilly, George Head 51 laborer timber industry
Nannie wife 28
Tempie daughter 14
Bonanza daughter 13
Omer son 12
Loranza daughter (error) 9
Andy son 6 ( I believe this is their son Audy Green)
Naomi daughter 2 1/2
Ireland son 3/12
Brown's Creek District of McDowell County, WV 1920

George moved around to find work a lot. Notice that his oldest daughter is named after Tempie, AZ and the second eldest is named after Bonanza, AK. Both were places he was working when they were born. Loranza was their son Loranzo Ballard Lilly.

It is also remarkable that there is such an age difference between Nancy Jane Hayton and George W. Lilly.

Lilly, George head 61 farming
Nannie wife 40
Omar son 21
L.B. son 19
Albert son 17
Audia(Audy) son 14

My lines of descent from William Marshal

As of today, I have finished posting all I know biographically, about 3 of my 5 lines of descent from William Marshal. If you also descend from him, look for his name in the cloud to the right. This has been a monumental task, and I still have two lines to go, provided I don't get off on another tangent.

Speaking of which, I found this tree in the book listed below. While I don't think Malcolm III descended from Jesus, it is interesting to note that President Eisenhower had a common ancestor with us. Sarah Boone, who married Jacob Stover.

In 1200, King John became involved in a long-drawn out war with France. This war was expensive and John was forced to introduce new taxes to pay for his army. This created a great deal of resentment in England, and John's position was not helped when, in 1205, the king's army lost control of Normandy, Brittany, Anjou and Maine. In 1215, King John made another desperate attempt to gain control of his lost territory in France. Once again he was defeated and was forced to pay 㿔,000 to obtain a truce. When John tried to obtain this money by imposing yet another tax, the barons rebelled. Gilbert de Clare was one of the leaders of the rebellion. Few barons remained loyal, and in most areas of the country, John had very little support. John had no chance of victory and on 15th June, 1215, at Runnymede in Surrey, he was forced to accept the peace terms of those who had successfully fought against him. The document the king was obliged to sign was the Magna Carta. In this charter the king made a long list of promises, including no new taxes without the support of his barons, a reduction in the power of his sheriffs and the right of a fair trial for all freemen. The barons had doubts whether King John could be trusted to keep his word. A small group of barons were given the task of making sure that John kept the promises he had made in the Magna Carta. Two of the barons chosen were Gilbert de Clare and Richard of Clare. Soon after he signed the charter the king appealed to Pope Innocent III for help. The pope was concerned about this rebellion and decided to excommunicate the barons who had fought against their king. The pope also provided money to help King John recruit foreign mercenaries to fight against his disloyal barons. The civil war resumed. One of King John's main targets was Richard of Clare and in November, 1215, his troops seized his castle at Tonbridge. The following year King John died and was succeeded by his son Henry III. A year later Richard of Clare also died and Gilbert became the 7th Earl of Clare and the 5th Earl of Hertford. Although the sons of bitter enemies, Gilbert and Henry became close friends and it was not long before the family were given back Tonbridge Castle. In 1225 Gilbert inherited the estates and the title of the Earl of Gloucester. He also inherited the estates of his grandmother, Maud de St. Hilary. Gilbert de Clare was now the most powerful magnate in England. He controlled 456 manors and when requested, had to supply the king with 260 knights. In 1230, Gilbert de Clare agreed to help Henry III win back land that King John had lost in France. Gilbert de Clare was killed while fighting in the king's army in Brittany on 25th October, 1230.

Fandoms: The 100 (TV), clexa fandom
Summary

Leksa [Lexa] looks over her life and how she became Commander over the 12 clans when an Omega comes to her attention.

'Wow, okay. I wrote that first line a few months ago and now re-reading that sentence and thinking back when I first started to write this story and where I am now, I know it needed just a little more.

The beginning of each chapter covers the time: BC

Before Clarke. I'm tempted to give you details, but I can't, sorry. My thoughts were going back before the beginning of Lexa's first introduction on the flop (the 100 tv show) and give a story to the Trikru people and culture from an ABO POV. At some point, the chapters will have caught up to the present time and no longer be the case. Although I might go back further in later chapters before she came to Polis, This may not make much sense right now, but after the first chapter, you'll get my drift. Leave me questions in the comments, and I'll try to explain better.'

A strange craft is spotted falling from the sky, and people are seen stumbling away. Have they been cast away from the heavens in punishment or are they here for something more?

'Yeah, that still sounds pretty lame to me to also. I don't have the heart to change it thou.'

Sibling Saturday

I am often asked how many siblings I have, and what do they look like.

Well, here we go! (Be forewarned!)

Yes, believe it or not, that's us. Cutting up, in of all places, a hospital!

That's me on the far left, it looks like I'm inspecting the back of David's head (for fleas?). While David is inspecting the tile floor for cracks, he kept saying "You're cracking up!" I didn't get it then, still don't (well, I don't, and that's my story and I'm sticking to it!) And yes, that's Eydie, using her imaginary pirate's hook to go after Jeff, who really didn't want to claim any of us as siblings that day!

We don't see each other all together often. But when we do, there is so much love between us all! I think even more now than before we lost Mommy, back in 2015. Yeah, I think she would be proud of all of us.
