Two funny funny things

Victorian on hill with fence
Bird de paradise de LJB

…in the order I discovered them…

Garrison Keillor, in his opening monologue tonight, a brief one I think was a setup for this, suggested that the two leading Republican Presidential candidates…um, could be described as…a Mormon…and…a polygamist.

Then, a few minutes later, I belatedly checked my email and discovered a special me-no-tube video from the Great White North—of a 1500 snowmobile race (1500 minutes? not sure what the units are), made personally for me by the great videographer, KW!

My chuckling had just died down from the first, when I saw the second. Now, if the idea of a snowmobile putt-putt audio doesn’t trip your tickler, I also offer a creative imported Bird of Paradise photo from a Left Coast correspondent….

And none of this has anything to do with the house on the hill that leads this post….

    It’s I-500, 500 1-mile laps. I think the “I” stands for “International”. Sorry about the confusion! 🙂

    Also, I didn’t listen to Garrison last night but I heard him tell that joke on the way downstate today. I had this deja vu moment of “hmmm, I’ve heard that one before” but couldn’t remember where!!!
