On The Rocks

Charadrius vociferusKilldeer (Charadrius vociferus). This one-footed stance is common among shore birds. Charadrius vociferusDid somebody say vociferus? This quintet was silent, but in breeding season Killdeer can be loud!

It’s Thanksgiving, time to remember what we have to be thankful for and stand on both our feet in defense of it. Let me convey my solidarity with those of you eating with Trumpettes today for the sake of family. An ugly mixture of the deplorable, horrible, reckless, foolish, and ignorant have helped elevate a thieving autocrat into unimaginable power. Maybe some of them will come to see how they’ve been taken by a reality TV hack of a con man, maybe not. But I hope you stand your ground in whatever way you deem best. All that’s best in America stands behind you.

    Like many other Leonard Cohen fans, I find myself playing his best CD, Live in London, over and over. And the really bitter irony: he died on Nov. 7, just before Trump was elected. One of the songs that I am hearing over and over again is “Democracy is Coming to the USA.”

    I love they way they quickly hop away rather thank fly or run. So efficient. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Still very upset by the election. They have no clue what they voted in. He can’t even handle the Security Briefings
