Spring, 2013: inordinate amount of dead coons along the freeway, and dead rabbits on the surface streets.

My grass is growing. Apparently, it didn't get the memo that the lawn mower is on strike

What are her demands?
By using the El Dorado Atmospheric and Oceanic temperatures thermal map. I caculated the contrary direction where the polar jet stream is going and it didn't look pretty.

My neighbors had a huge live possum on their porch the other day. I watched it climb the fence and waddle up their steps to go and sit on their porch and eat.

Two swans in the lagoon by Scott Fountain, one was trying to drown the other and, no, wait, they were just making love. Never mind. Who knew that birds humped?

C'mon, everything humps. You must be kidding or you slept through 9th grade science class.

Birds aren't very romantic about it, generally (although swans and sandhill cranes do have a ritual foreplay dance they engage in). In most cases, birds collide and bump their common orifices. DNA material transfers and fertilization occurs. It's over within a second and to us earthbound bipeds it looks like two birds simply flew into each other....

Up my way many of the ponds are still covered in ice. It's been getting better, but still they're covered. Spotted recently on several ponds are cranes, just standing on the ice looking underwhelmed, as in "I migrated all that way for 'this?'" Sandhill cranes? Dunno, but expect that whatever they are they will be hungry soon.

My recollections from that class include (1) the first day with the teacher passing around a not particularly interesting rock and then announcing, after everybody had handled it, that it was a fossilized dinosaur turd and (2) a film, which I'm pretty certain took place in the back of a police car, of a woman giving birth, red bush and placenta and all, followed by the prettiest girl in the class announcing that she would never have children. I think she reneged on that resolution, or maybe she adopted.

Or one trying to drown the other.

Saw my first pulverized squirrel of 2014 along Jefferson in downtown Trenton this afternoon.
My hand to God, she's gonna be at Carnegie Hall. But you - I'll let you have her now at the old price, OK? Which is, which is anything you wanna give me. Anything at all.

The cockpunchers on Harley's are polluting my area with unneeded exhaust and sound system noise. I don't know if those bikes have a linear throttle or if it is just an on and off switch.
