    I believe the quote from Col. Kurtz at the end of Apocalypse Now is appropriate….
    “the horror… the horror….”

      Actually, that’s from Heart Of Darkness by Joseph Conrad, on which the movie was based.

        I wrote a paper in grad school on “Heart of Darkness,” comparing my ’77 MGB to Marlow’s steamboat because it was always breaking down. I must’ve replace ever Lucas, Prince of Darkness electrical component in the engine, including one time when I used chewing gum and a penny when a fuse blew. “African Queen” with Humphrey Bogart is closer “Heart” than “Apocalypse Now” was.

        But the geese using the bridge when they have wings … Guess some species will follow anyone.

      • The insulation of Lucas wiring was specially formulated to be delicious to rodents. I lost a Lucas wiring harness to an cadre of squirrels living under my employer’s parking lot.

    Milwaukie. The one spelled “ee” is somewhere the other side of the Rockies. Sorry, but misspellings make me itch.

      Makes me itch, too, which is why I looked it up, copied and pasted it, and did not anticipate that WordPress (or safari, not sure which) “corrected” it for me.

      I’m in the two-e Milwaukee¹. We have a statue to Gertie the Duck, who raised a brood of ducklings on a piling under the busiest bridge in the city in 1945. I heard the story when I was a kid, and there was a commemorative plaque on the bridge. When the bridge was replaced, the plaque was also replaced with a 4-ft statue.

      ¹I was wondering what geese in Portland had to do with a city on Lake Michigan. I have a cousin who lives in Milwaukie, but have never met him.
