Caught My Eye…

Welcome to Friday and welcome to summer 2013! It’s time for another exciting edition of “Caught My Eye.”

If you are a first-time visitor, this is my weekly column where I take a quick look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. Often I throw in some sarcasm and poke fun at people just to make you smile.

Caught My Eye…

Hey Caught My Eye (CME) fans…you’ve made it to another Friday and as is normal I congratulate you on this milestone. To signify the importance of another edition of Caught My Eye being published, Britain decided to have a Royal Wedding and the United States decided to launch Space Shuttle Endeavour today.

I thank both countries…

If this is your first visit, CME is not a government-run health program; it is just a weekly column that I publish on Fridays. I take a look (sometimes sarcastically) at stories that I did not have time to write about during the week and let folks read about some stories that may not have made their local newscasts or papers.

Besides, it is Friday and you deserve a break from all the crap you put up with this week.

The only requirement to read CME is that you must show me your long-form certificate of live birth (Just kiddin).

Today I take a look at the birther issue, urban chickens, name-calling, the Montana Legislature, and doggie doors. I also check my political inbox….so let’s get going! Continue reading

If this is your first time visiting The Western Word (TWW), Caught My Eye is a weekly column posted on Friday mornings where I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to comment about during the week – and sometimes I add a little sarcasm!

This week I take a look at what came into my political inbox, snot, awards that are piling up for Bozeman, chickens, trophies, and much more! So sit back and enjoy another edition of Caught My Eye… Continue reading
