    Quote of the Week From My Life.

    Decades ago there was a one-panel comic of two priests (Roman collars are the tipoff) playing cards, with one saying, "Forgive me, Father, for I have ginned."

    Bleah. I think I've developed an ear infection. Will call doctor in the morning.

    And now, for your daily dose of cute...

    Probably at that age it was just a pea-green floatie.

    The "Nice Happy" Thread

    Also saw five or six bald eagles in the same area, with one pair that seemed to be courting.

    The "Nice Happy" Thread

    Went with wife up to father-in-law's, and thence out to Fir Island (part of the Skagit River delta). Very nice sunny autumn day. Some of the winter-over birds were there: maybe a hundred or two trumpeter swans and probably ten to twenty thousand snow geese. The swans are silent; the geese just the opposite. The swans are pretty chill. The geese move and talk continually. Watched the big mass of geese graze in the grass and interact, and eventually they got spooked and the whole flock took flight. She grabbed some video with her phone, but I haven't looked at it. EDIT: This is someone else's video from a year and a half back of the geese (probably a few times the number we had today, but not twenty times the number, if you see what I mean) in the same area (probably a few miles from where we were), but it was taken from further away from the birds -- we were no more than 25 yards from the edge of the flock on the ground -- so the noise in the linked video is diminished compared to what we heard today.

    The Academics Thread

    Hm, I woulda guessed either circa 1966 proto-psychedelic rock, or 1990s post-punk videotrashpop.

    Get out an El Marko and he could be Blue-Ringed Bazza. Y'know, "Blue-Ringed Bazza and Death Tribble" would make a great cartoon, in a Saturday morning high-camp slapstick sort of way.
