  1. I would say that the photo is complementary. The duck mouth should be open, with quacks appearing in a bubble above it. Brings back some memories though, although not necessarily fond ones.

  2. Good morning Hamsters. Pea soup fog and 66 right now, and we can barely see the house behind us. Ground is soggy from 3.5″ since last Friday. it can stop any time now. Looking forward to the cold front coming on Saturday for a couple of days.

    That is some duck costume.

  3. WATCH OUT! I almost forgot to remind you again that TD One is out there in the Atlantic bearing down on us. Apparently, since it is not officially hurricane season yet, it can safely be ignored because to bring it up now would reflect unfavorably on the big opening day event (June 1) scheduled by the media to break out their annual hurricane fear fest. Anything that doesn’t fit the narrative just doesn’t exist – right? Well never fear, El Gordo is here monitoring the world wide weather for you to remind you again and again that you are not smart enough to know when to leave low lying areas, to buy batteries and water, and when to hunker down. Just as well go ahead and wrap your pets and bring in your pipes while you are at it. Jus’ sayin’

    Turn in your Hunting License.

    She’s a turkey.

    The media’s pathetic cheers for Chelsea Clinton

    This is just the latest attempt by The Media Resistance to make Chelsea Clinton a thing. The same liberal lunatics in the press who rage about the Trump children’s nepotistic privileges champion the ‘‘refreshingly outspoken’‘ daughter of the Clinton dynasty — who, at 37 years old, will receive a “Lifetime Impact” award from Variety on Friday for her “humanitarian work.”

    The honor comes during the same week that the Clinton Global Initiative cash machine officially shut down. Among the generous “humanitarian” projects of CGI’s parent, the Clinton Foundation: accused of using its resources for Chelsea’s wedding to another heir of Democratic corruptocrats, Marc Mezvinsky — the newly jobless former hedge-fund manager and son of convicted fraudster Edward Mezvinsky, a former Democratic congressman from Iowa.

  6. From last night…………..

    #71 –

    Is it possible Antoine could be reclaimed by civilized peoples?

    North of Long Point they aint gotta CHANCE unless they own a Hum-VEE or a dirtbike! The clay based heaving pavement undulations + massive potholes & crappy pavement repair AINT for the faint of heart!

  7. Ahem. The OC pic appears to be a TURKEY. Ducks don’t have a wattle or a big fan-tail.

    I posted this immediately on seeing the image. Now I see Sarge had already flagged it.

    Texpat needs to turn in his Country Boy badge.

  8. Hmmmmm i find the girl in the open comments pic strangely, nay oddly attractive. If i was not married to my lovely BSue, I could see myself chasing this lovely lass around in my speedo with the same costume attachment:beak feet and tail. I already have the beard so I won’t need that. Happily I will forgo that chase and stay with my lovely wife. Wait maybe BSue would enjoy the speedo costume. I’ll get back back with you on that.

  9. BSue has exhibited flawed judgement at least twice up to now.

    Squack wearing a speedo and chasing her would likely give her great clarity of thought.

  10. Rush is on a roll exposing the pair who wrote the just off the press tell-all book about the dysfunctional beyond comprehension Hillary campaign last year. Why did they not reveal it as they discovered or were told pieces? Obviously they saved it for the book after the fact. So the endless lie that was the campaign hooked lots of low information voters but not enough to pull off a win for Hildebeast. One could conclude that it was these two and not the Russians who are responsible for not telling all when it counted.

    The Russians, whatever they knew before election day, were likely laughing themselves silly so hard they could barely move.

  11. Speaking of goats, I saw a little one doing the jumping around thing you see on the YouTube in a pasture this morning on the way to work.

    I love the rural life.

  12. When it comes to solar eclipses, I kinda figure if you’ve seen one you’ve seen em all.

    How about a show of hands from the Couchsters who will be braving traffic jams to go be in the center line of the Aug 21st solar eclipse?

    Prepare for the traffic jams

    Twelve million people live along the path of totality, and another 25 million live within one day’s drive, Rao said. But people from all over the U.S. will be flocking to the centerline to experience the rare and amazing celestial event that is totality. As with most crowds of people heading to a major event, there will be traffic — lots and lots of traffic.

    “State departments of transportation and police are expecting hurricane evacuation-like traffic,” Reynolds said. So if you’re planning on taking a small road trip the day of the event, give yourself plenty of time to get to the path of totality. Don’t get stuck watching a partial eclipse in standstill traffic on your way to the centerline. Allot at least a few extra hours of driving, or seek lodging the night before.

  13. I asked my BSue if she would wear a duck suit. She said no. I then asked about a Teddy. She told me to act my age. She paused for a moment, thought about what she had just said and retracted the last statement.

    I love that woman even without a duck suit.

    That baby goat appears to be wearing a diaper. In addition to its duck costume. I think it’s an indoor pet.
    :mrgreen:

  15. An anxious indoor baby goat with a diaper and a duck suit. Nothing wrong with that.

    And people say the world is going to schizzle—-

  16. There’s something about that duck costume that calms her.

    It has nothing to do with it being a duck costume. I’d be willing to bet a Batman costume would have had the same effect. Or one a them thundershirts.

  17. You can be yer Quacker. You can be yer Gobbler. You can be yer Clucker. Whatever makes yer Happy.

  18. I got some good chuckles today………. but GJT, fer some reason this just quacked me up.

    You can be yer Quacker. You can be yer Gobbler. You can be yer Clucker. Whatever makes yer Happy.

  19. I’m going to launch a super mighty strike on all trans fowl and reduce them to ashes! Or maybe just crispy legs and thighs.

    Would a capon be considered transchicken?

    They obviously have 22 year old morons writing copy over at NPR. I mean, really…

    But while GM says the seizure will hurt its dealers, multiple employees at the plant tell NPR that the takeover was actually orchestrated by GM dealers, with the support of a judge and police officers.

    and,

    “Like most carmakers in the oil-producing nation, it has seen production grind to a halt as the cash-strapped government chokes off its access to dollars needed to import parts and repatriate profits,” the wire service writes. “Nationwide, carmakers assembled just 2,849 cars last year, from a peak of 172,218 vehicles in 2007.”

    Oh ! Gosh, we didn’t think about that.

    Nobody does anything in Venezuela without the expressed consent of the government. There are not enough words in this or any other language to describe the vast stupidity of this NPR article.

    Yeah it was hard to find any one section of the article to bullet point the stupidity of the entirety.

    They turned the old jail into a museum a long time ago and I’ve never been.
    Will have to do it one of these Saturdays. It has a great history.
