So, I understand that on Monday, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday, Mitt Romney was running around in a parade, pressing flesh and kissing babies, as politicians do.

Mitt Romney was greeted warmly by a largely African-American crowd at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Parade in Jacksonville. He shook hands with several dozen parade-goers and even hugged a few of them.
“Who let the dogs out?” he called out, as he stood there beaming in his shirt and tie. “Who! Who!”

I understand that he also referred to a little kid's necklace as "bling bling."

From the script of the 1980 movie Airplane, I declare that what Mitt needs is a "jive translator":
Jivemn2 : Mnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Attndnt : Can I get you something?
Jivemn2 : S'mo fo butter layin' to the bone. Jackin' me up.
Attndnt : I'm sorry I don't understand.
Jivemn1 : Cutty say he cant hang.
Woman4 : Oh stewardess, I speak jive.
Attndnt : Ohhhh, good.
Woman4 : He said that he's in great pain and he wants to know if you can help him.
Attndnt : Would you tell him to just relax and I'll be back as soon as I can with some medicine.
Woman : Jus' hang loose blooood. She goonna catch up on the rebound a de medcide.
Jivemn2 : What it is big mamma, my mamma didn't raise no dummy, I dug her rap.
Woman4 : Cut me som' slac' jak! Chump don wan no help, chump don git no help. Jive ass dude don got no brains anyhow.

In this case, I think the "jive ass dude don got no brains" would be Willard.

Friday wildlife blogging

Last Sunday, we went for a drive up the Skagit River to Rockport. At a park along the river, it is possible during the winter months to see many bald eagles awaiting the winter chum salmon run.

When we arrived, there was heavy fog, but it began to lift even before we got our jackets on.

After seeing some eagles from the nearby bridge, we went for a walk towards the west on the north side of the river. On the way, there was a fellow with a much better camera, attempting to get some photos of this magnificent bird:

This was such a huge bird, perhaps a female. She was facing away from me as I took this, alas.

A great day - it was sunny and brisk, we saw about 20 eagles during the day, as well as large flocks of snow geese and tundra swans while driving through the Skagit valley, many of them just south of Mount Vernon and not far off the freeway.

good one

Robber shoots self while robbing convenience store:

Police say surveillance video shows the man shooting himself as he placed the gun in the waistband of his pants. The clerk wasn't injured.

A short time later, police found Derrick Kosch, 25, at a home with a gunshot wound to his right testicle and lower left leg.

He's one nut away from removing himself from the gene pool. Congratulations, Derrick!
