Ok Pedro - I give... how come The Looter suddenly looks like OJ. Maybe I've been hanging off the bottom of the world (down here in Oz) too long and the blood has flooded my brain making it useless... but I don't get it!

G'day, Karen. I didn't realize your were one of our friends from down under, so it makes sense the Looter series wouldn't mean much to you. "Looter" was the most famous picture to come out of the Hurricane Katrina aftermath in New Orleans this September. He was caught carting off a plastic basket of Heiniken beer, and because he has such a weird face and hair-do, the PhotoShop crowd went to town with him.
Why OJ? Heck if I know. But it's a little funny, at least.
Isn't it?

I did see the looter photo, but perhaps my upside-down-ness meant I missed out on wider discussion! OK - I'll grant you this one is a little funny! I can just imagine, the Looter can't be brought to justice, but will Heinecken launch a civil suit?

Have I got it now?!?

pedro

One thing's funny for sure -- neither of us knows how to spell Heineken!

karen

Who cares how to spell it. It only matters that you can pronounce it well enough to order it!

In Queensland, here in Oz, they have a beer called XXXX. They say that's because Queenslanders can't spell beer!

And if you want XXXX you ask for "Four X". Now I'm originally from Canada, and when I first moved to Oz many years ago, they had a commercial on TV where a group of Aussie surf life-savers were strolling down a beach singing "I can feel a Four-X coming on". Now at that time in Canada, Forex was a brand of condom, so I found this ad quite amusing!

Seen at low tide

  • American White Pelican
    Saw 30 in one flock on a weptember evening while fishing
  • Hummingbird
    Finally, my first hummingbirds. Saw them on a fire bush in Crystal Beach, FL. My rental's neighbor's yard is all xeriscaped, which is ugly to me but just fine with the little hummers. At first, I thought they were the biggest hornets I'd ever seen.
  • Flamingo!
    One of these dudes flew right over my house. I couldn't believe it. And please don't tell me it was a roseated spoonbill because it was a frickin' flamingo, dude! Huge and pink and right there above me. I was like so freaking out, you know?
  • Falcon!
    Don't see these guys too often. Wish we did. Bet the morning doves don't.
  • Black Skimmer
    These beauties are getting scarce, but one flew by yesterday at low tide on the hunt for minnows.
  • Dead sea turtle
    cool, but smelly
  • Reddish Egret
    These have been hanging out around the pool quite a bit lately. Must be a new group of adolesent birds -- the youngsters like to hunt where the water is clear, and it takes them a day to figure out there are not now and never will be fish in the swimming pool no matter how clear the water.
  • Sand Piper
  • Brown Pelican
    I saw a flock of about 200 of these at Disappearing Island yesterday, just south of Anclote Island on the west coast of FL. Good to see such a large flock.
  • Wood Pecker
    They've developed a sudden interest in the orange tree, which just went into bloom.
