  1. My favorite comedians such as John Cleese and Jack Benny never laugh at their own jokes. Red Skelton would be the exception to my rule. Thank you for the film clip, Kevin. That movie is approximately my age and I and my wife have enjoyed it for many years. We met in the theater when performing "The Gondoliers" by Gilbert and Sullivan.

  3. This boy is assuming the identity of a native born Texan! He is the first pup we have bought that came with a Dutch passport and an unpronounceable name!
  4. They do not review every pic. I had to request that a rare pic of an Audubon Oriole in my backyard be reviewed.
  5. The monitors are few in number. They have a great number of observations to review. I suspect that your pic has not been reviewed.
  6. I drive Factory Five Racing's replica of the 1965 Shelby American Cobra Daytona coupe.

  7. Thank you both for your replies. This is a new species for me.☺️
  8. My first mistake was telling that damn coyote "If ya think you're so big and so fast, dude just eat me!!!"
  9. I thought freckles were dark spots on folks derived from Celtic ancestors. That would be true of my ancestors and descendants (three children}. This bird shows the reverse image.
  10. I heard a mockingbird last night. You may be correct. I am a sports car racing driver and photographer with a bachelor's degree in literature and a masters degree in international relations. Did you know that the collective noun for an assembly of mockingbirds is "plagiary"?
  11. To the left as we look west on Hwy 46 you will see a smidgen of the River Road Park between traffic and parked cars. To the right you will see the sidewalk that leads to outdoor customer seating at the Little Gretel Restaurant (Czech and German cuisine) which features roast duck on the menu. The menu states that duck, beef, sausage, and chicken are sourced from local farms. No roadkill is served. I prefer the ribeye steak and cheese sandwich au jus. It is about ten times better than any Philly cheese steak I have had! The schnitzel and red cabbage is also phenomenal but I do a better sauerbraten. My mother's maiden name was Altgelt which translates from the German as "old money". I guess so. From the 14th century the Altgelts owned the coaching inn, the brewery, and the bakery in a small town in the Rhineland. They also produced generations of Reform and Evangelical bishops and pastors. One of them had eighteen children by two wives. Like Johann Sebastian Bach his organ had no stops!!!
  12. The ducktailed 1965 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe parks at the duck trail in Boerne Texas.
  13. You know you have bad breath when carrion eaters avoid your company!
  14. I was thinking the same, but when they are perching I do not get a view of the underside of their wintips.
  15. Grackles swarm the Dallas area! https://www.expressnews.com/news/article/Birds-swarm-Texas-parking-lot-video-16764757.php?utm_campaign=CMS Sharing Tools (Premium)&utm_source=share-by-email&utm_medium=email Warn Tippi Hedren!!!
  16. I do not understand your message or the change you require. You may need the assistance of an administrator. I have done nothing to affect your functional services.
  17. The mockingbird is the state bird of Texas. 😉
