the wrong big pink guy

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 3:20 pm

Last night, Gwen Ifill mentioned that PBS had live coverage of the

Roberts’ nomination hearings.  Today, while Ted Kennedy was

questioning John Roberts, I thought I’d turn off my radio and watch

a few minutes on our local PBS station.   When the screen filled

with a large pink face, I thought WXXI was indeed broadcasting the

hearing.

 

Then, however, my spirits dropped.  It wasn’t Ted, it was Barney —  TedKg

no, not Massachusetts’ Barney Frank — but that big, cloying-annoying

dinosaur.  So, I turned off the tv, and came to the decision that I really

didn’t need to listen to Kennedy vs. Roberts.

a fine windbreak —

sumo wrestler

 

 

 

 

 

 





the defeated wrestler, too
joins the crowd…
bright moon

 

 

 

 

 

 

his wife watched
the match…
defeated wrestler

Senate Judiciary Committee — As Jim Lindgren noted

there are just too many Foghorn Leghorns.  I am,

however, already missing summer. 

 

 



summer’s end –
my children try to teach me
how to smile

 

 

 






summer’s end

the abattoir truck

lingers around town

 

 

 

 

 

summer spate
muddy water pulls
the salmon home
