I didnt’ know the answer and couldn’t find it on the big ass web. I found some disturbing drawings of the process.

I couldn’t find it either even after googling. I do know that going into outer space can wreck havoc on the bowels and let loose the dogs of war.

Guys, I just saw a dude on Riverside across from Mount Saint Mary Park honking at a hostile goose from safely inside his white SUV.

Does this one-note sound tactic work when dealing with the STC geese?

I’m looking for speculation here not hard facts or statistics.

I think it is illegal to harass Canadian geese. They are a protected species. Maybe even a fine if caught!

Did I ever tell you guys about the time I saw my neighbor, Alberta, choking a Canadian Goose by our shared retention pond?

Yep, back on October 19th, 2016 she was over there feeding them and one of the goose got a little selfish I guess. So then Alberta grabbed said selfish goose up with her bare hands and strangled it silly for about six seconds. Like she was Michael Myers on Halloween and the goose was his sister.

I hid behind my bushes lest Alberta turn her chokers on me, but a cuppa hours later I made and hung up a sign on the street light by the pond. Being on the wiser side, I snapped a photo promptly thereafter. Within a cuppa more hours Alberta was out there ripping the sign down with the very hands that had choked that goose.

This is a true story. Except Alberta’s an alias.

Desperately seeking lost license plate for 20th century truck

tcr! · May 18, 2019 at 2:24 pm

It jumped off on a whim somewhere in the Fox Valley. Maybe in the Blue Goose parking lot. Maybe at the Geneva Public Library. Maybe on the corner by Water Street Studios. Who knows.

The last four confirmed digits are 1317 — see partial photo of rear plate below.

1317 license plate

The missing front plate is metal (not magnetic) with a white background, red lettering, and blue embossed numbers. Sadly, it does not respond to voice commands no matter how firm or how gentle your tone.

The STC police issued me one verbal warning last night and the officer confirmed a ticketed warning could be next. I’ve alerted Jessie White to no avail. After repeated attempts to contact him earlier this morning, all my calls are now being immediately directed to voicemail.

The reward for safe and prompt return of this license plate is one signed copy of my latest book — see attached photo of myself and said book below.

tcr! and the diaries for 2018 book

The diaries for 2018 book will be handsomely delivered to your personal front door, or your preferred rendezvous location.

I know I could simply get replacement plates but first I need an emissions check and then I need to go to the DMV. And my poor truck needs an oil change. And then to make matters completely worse, it’s raining and thundering right now. Or it was at least when I started writing this.

Until this matter is resolved, my truck and I will continue to live on the edge of the legal system. Per usual. I should probably print up flyers and hang them at Blue Goose, the Fox Valley libraries, and Water Street Studios.

Please help.

And yes, the book / plate swap is a real thing.

Did you check DMV website to see if you can get just the one? I thought you could…. And WHAT did you do to SC police to have them hot on your tail about this? There are plenty of cars around with just the rear plate, and although we’re supposed to …See More

tcr! tcr! · May 18, 2019 at 3:14 pm

I don’t really like going the DMV website. It’s callled cyberdrive.com and it makes me feel kinda weird inside and not in a good way. I’m not exactly sure why the police pulled me over last night. He said my pink taillights were kinda dim and then all I could think was “How would you know unless you’ve been checking out my backside when I wasn’t looking?!??!!”

I think some folks will use it negatively in reference to people deemed hippyish. The derogatory term for people who actually came from Bohemia (my heritage) was bohunk.

Fiercely independent critters

tcr! · Dec 27, 2018 at 12:55 pm

Pro tip: be really good at accepting people’s help.

As humans we can be fiercely independent critters but pride is irrelevant and unuseful.

Wanna know why? You know that good feeling you get when you yourself extend your hand to help, for no other reason than you’re a good person? That warm fuzzy you get when we make the world not all about us?

Don’t deprive someone else offering help that same kind of warm fuzzy feeling. It’ll make them feel good and very well may be the best part of their day.

PS- my dictionaries are telling me that “unuseful” is not a word. They can go fuck themselves. 👍
