Excuse me! This is my Ancestry!


The neighbors were not happy about my choice of yard art, but It’s homage to my Tribal bloodline. Why shouldn’t I display my Great x 1000 Grandfather with his trusty compadre – ‘Strong Buffalo that Nods’ – in my front garden? I really don’t see the harm in it personally.

My ancestor – ‘Clever Eagle that Winks’ – was one of the strongest, bravest and most fearless warriors of his tribe: And I’ll be damned if Ms.Peabody thinks I’m taking him down.

With his sharp eye, he could spear a fish from 100 yards away; unlike nowadays where you can get an already filleted fish from the local supermarket. My heart swells with pride just looking at him.

Knowing one’s roots is important. I think the neighbors are just jealous. After all, can they say one of their ancestors built the biggest Reservation in all of America? I doubt it, and I’m so sure of that, I’ll go as far as to say I’ll bet my last Dime on it!

  1. Nicely done Victoria! I love the names and the history! Thanks for coming back to participate again in the MFtS challenge! I hope to see you back next week! Be well… ^..^


  2. Your choice of names is priceless. “Clever Eagle that Winks” for a strong, brave, fearless warrior. Haha! Loved this Victoria. I personally think that “Winks” and “Nods” will win the neighborhood battle! 😀


  3. Love the names!
    It’s important to know your roots, but I wonder what your protagonist is going to stick in their yard next? Whatever it will be, I’m sure Ms Peabody won’t like it 🙂


All words welcomed :)
