The Rez
Five minutes to another world

     These pictures were taken at Wauregan Reservoir, also known as Quinebaug Pond State Park, just a few minutes drive from the Train Station in downtown Danielson. The opportunities to experience "The Rez" in all its glory become scarcer as fall approaches. It's a beautiful spot any time of year, but nothing soothes the need for nature in short notice like an afternoon paddle around the perimeter in a kayak. Turtles and frogs still abound and the shallows are teaming with small fish. Three bass and a snapping turtlte on the prowl were easily visible in the clear water. There was scarcely a ripple on the surface. This is one of the best places in Killingly, CT.

Please note...
This is the first new entry in the One-legged Sandpiper since Sunday, December 14, 2003.
I guess I've been kinda busy. I'll be restoring hundreds of pages of the old stuff and adding new stuff as time permits.
Stay tuned.

A Very Lucky Hermit crab

     Kelly was fishing at The Rez and I was walking along the bank when I noticed some movement near my feet. At first I thought I had kicked a rock, but then noticed a snail type of shell on the ground in front of me. I picked it up and found it was occupied by Crabby. Crabby is a Hermit crab that someone released at The Rez thinking they were doing him a favor... or getting out of caring for him. He's missing his big claw but otherwise seemed in good health. Being from the Caribbean, there's no chance he would have survived September in the "wild" and would no doubt get eaten or stepped on so... His new home is now in a ten gallon fish tank with a horseshoe crab shell for a cave, clam shells for food, fresh water and salt water AND... New Jersey beach sand to stroll on.

I Predict...
If it starts looking like McCain/Palin will implode in this election, the Talking-Chimp may lend a hand by letting one get by the goalie and using a terrorist attack as reason enough to suspend the election. He could always resort to picking a fight with Iran, Pakistan or Russia in case plan A doesn't happen. Maybe even letting the "financial crisis" turn into a reason. Keep your head down... time is growing short!

The Bushtika... You saw it here first!

For Old Times Sake...
This was the March 28, 2003 cover picture. It is still as relevant today as then except...
I've added a few new thoughts at the bottom.

You Don't Need A Brain To Be Dangerous

The Next Election Will Be The Most Important One Ever!

"I think we all agree, the past is over. This is still a dangerous world. It's a world of madmen and uncertainty and potential mental losses. Rarely is the question asked is our children learning? Will the highways of the Internet become more few? How many hands have I shaked? They misunderestimate me. I am a pitbull on the pantleg of opportunity. I know that the human being and the fish can coexist. Families is where our nation finds hope, where our wings take dream. Put food on your family! Knock down the tollbooth! Vulcanize society! Make the pie higher! Make the pie higher!"

We are SO doomed!

Spinning Chicken

Spinning Chicken Update

Word comes from down thar...
Spinning Chicken's by far...
The worst driver 'round hyar...
And now can't drive his car...
Hardy Har Har... and not the Ralph Cramden version

     Fans of the Freaky Fowl may have noticed that the chicken has flown the coop. This usually means something he initiated is about to hit the fan but... in this case rumor has it his insurance cancelled due to twelve (12) points on the ole license. Whoopsie! The only thing that remains to be seen is who gets blamed for THIS one.
