Birdinhand commented on tr ig's blog post For the Birds
"Since this was about birds, I figured I better look. Around here the naturalists suggest the clear hummingbird juice. Tried it. Zip. Went back to the red and they show up several at a time."

Birdinhand commented on tr ig's blog post Fell On Black Days : concert review turned eulogy for Chris Cornell
"I didn't say or mean that I didn't get it. What I meant was I didn't like it. Too loud, discordant etc.   ....just like you mentioned. Some liked it some didn't."

"With the exception of Nirvana on occasion, I just couldn't grok the grunge scene. Nonetheless, suicide is tragic, especially for the survivors. I've seen the speculation that it was one of those Michael Hutchence scenes. I sure don't…"

Birdinhand commented on Ted Frier's blog post Trump Has Contempt for Basic Premise of American Democracy
"I think more applicable from H.L Mencken: “For every difficult and complicated question, there is an answer that is simple, easily understood, and wrong.” That in a nutshell is what I think has happened. The election was…"

"Anna, That's where I was headed the other day when I asked if this wasn't just like the POTUS's remarks about Muslims. I never understand how one is seen as righteous indignation and the other as bigotry. I wouldn't…"

Thank You Sir, You've Made My Morning

Sunny had two teeth in her lower jaw and it looked like maybe three on top. She was riding a bicycle made of a lot of recycled parts, wearing a baseball cap set sideways, pajama bottoms with bunnies and a tattered coat. Her sunglasses looked like Yoko Ono may have worn them in the past. Tattoos covered the back of her left hand.

The handle bars carried two black plastic bags laden with cans and bottles banging together as she pulled up to the bottle recycling facility. I…

I have a friend who can't figure out how to do anything. That wouldn't be so bad but he knows I can, and since nobody has to walk to a phone booth anymore he doesn't see anything wrong with calling at any hour.

I would complain more but his uncle who had an agricultural business in southern Oregon, if you get my drift, actually named me in his will a few years ago. I didn't know he was going to but he remembered all the time I had spent helping him build his house and being…

If you hang a round a bar at the mouth of The Columbia River until closing time you hear a lot of talk about what to do with the sea lions.

The docks are known as sea lion docks. That doesn't make much sense to me since "sea" is already in the name. They don't need docks but boats do. Nobody can get down there most of the time and getting off your boat isn't going to happen.…
