    Many years ago I was in a grocery store with my future wife. This old old black guy comes up and starts chatting with us. He was wearing an awesome red/black/white houndstooth suit with a matching hat. (One of those suits that looks real good on an old black man and absolutely ridiculous on anyone else)
    Every time he would finish a sentence, he would clap and shuffle his feet in a kind of slow dance.
    He said "Let me tell you a story."
    (clap and shuffle)
    "When I was 16 my mama fixed up my birth certificate so I could go into the Army. She told me 'Boy, the Army will feed you and you can send the money home and take care of the family.'"
    (clap and shuffle)
    "So I did my basic and what do you know, a war broke out a year later. They shipped me overseas."
    (clap and shuffle)
    "When we got to port, there was all these people protesting and carrying on. They was all shouting and waving signs that said 'Yankee go home'"
    (clap and shuffle)
    "I tell you, I had been called a nigger plenty of times, but I ain't NEVER been called a Yankee!"
    (clap and shuffle)

    Your are not wearing a backpack with a large maple leaf on it? I thought the maple leaf was the international symbol for "yeah I am white and english speaking but you can't blame me for all the **** that Americans and Brits did so don't mug/yell at/kidnap me".

    Hola, banditos. Baby was unhappy this morning for no discernible reason but then magically slept lying on my chest for three hours.

    Damn straight. Actually, most of the time she was kind of in my armpit, as she likes to scoot herself sideways. Must not have too developed a sense of smell yet, eh?

    'Morning.

    Slept late, went to the gym, went out for lunch, took a nap, and now it's almost dinner time. Productive day.

    Went out to do some trail maintenance, mostly recovering the bar and chain that I left lodged in some windfall a week ago.
