Even better, pictures of Brown Pelicans covered in gooey crap.
You blew B.P.
No matter what you say or do from now on:
(And I say to you, the American gas guzzlers and the Obama administration (nice timing on the drilling announcement, by the way), and to myself every time I fill up my car: Brown Pelicans!)
I passed a bunch of magnificently bearded fellows in front of Thumptown on the way to work yesterday.
Bunch of glory hounds. All out for the second-glances, and admirations. They're just in it for the dames. Me? I grow my beard for real, substantive reasons...
Like....I'm too lazy to shave.
"Obama's drill ban may hinder jobs comeback." The Bulletin. 6/5/10.
Oh, Come ON!!!
First off, got to say that Mont West is a great name for the owner of a western store.
Secondly, I wonder if he has the building already leased? It's actually big enough for one of the major chains -- and probably way too big for any local businesses.
Thirdly, more and more I get the sense in talking to other business owners, that it's almost a given that it's more lucrative to liquidate a store than to try and sell it.
"Property Bend spent millions on for city hall now a drain." The Bulletin, 6/5/10.
Kind of funny to me that the newspaper doesn't mention who sold the property until the ninth paragraph.
The former owners? The Bulletin.
I got to say, it seems to me that just about every decision the city council made in during the boom was the wrong one. I mean, flipping a coin would've resulted in better decision making. Or doing the 'Costanza': making your best guess and then doing the opposite.
I'm Duncan McGeary, owner and/or operator for the last 33 years of Pegasus Books in Downtown Bend, Oregon. These days I'm writing books as well as selling them.
I'm the comic book guy. But even more so, I'm a book book guy. Books of all kinds. Big books and little books, children's and adult, fiction and non-fiction, hardback and paperback and trade paperback and graphic novels. Books with more words than pictures and books with more pictures than words. They are all part of the book world to me, and I love being surrounded by them every day.
I also have a second blog: Pegasus Books, where I list the product coming in over the next week.
