MEEP-MEEP!

Hello from Homer's House in TuCSon. Apparently I've been spelling it incorrectly until now. Anyway, we had a lovely dinner last night featuring very friendly guests including the deligtfully perky and bubbly Panchesco, who also takes nice pictures. I've found out one secret to taking nice pictures is that you take an awful lot of them. Anyhow, later on we played a parlor game where I won a barbie-like doll with this evil expression on her face. She kinda looks like she's trying to kick a 5-year crystal meth addiction cold turkey, and she isn't happy about it. I love her. After the games we went out to a local bar where it was Tucson's version of Mid-Atlantic Leather, albeit a bit smaller. I sat in a sling for posterity, and you can see how much I liked it here. The baloons in the background were blown up by none other than Buster himself, baloon fetishist extrordanaire.

MEEP-MEEP! Today I finally saw my first Road Runner, and it was very big and very fast. They kinda slink around along the roadside, sure enough. Homer took me out to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum which was very large and extensive, and a great example of educational interpretation. Although like Homer, I did feel bad seeing the Gambrell's Quail nervously pacing at the edge of the bird enclosure, clearly wanting to go roam around in the desert. I pointed out to the two teenage docents in the reptile house that their desert boas were indeed fucking, although not in those words. "Come quick!" I said to them to draw them from their station to see the miracle of life ocurring in front of us all, "You can see the male's tiny penis squirming into the cloaca of the female!" They hurried back to their station after I said that.

In addition to the road runner, today I saw many inca dove, the elf owl, gila woodpecker, magnificent hummingbird, pyrrhuloxia, and lots more.

Tomorrow afternoon I'll be heading out on a Jimbo Solo adventure for a couple days to Ramsey Canyon, where there are even more birds I haven't seen yet. I don't even know where Ramsey Canyon is, or where I'm staying, but my backpack and tent is ready and so is my credit card if need be. I return Tuesday in time to watch Amazing Race with Homer and the gang.

OOH! You'll enjoy it there. Lotsa hummingbirds! And there should be places to stay nearby at least.

I've met Buster once or twice over the years. Did you see the episode of Graham Norton where he and Cher called Buster at home?

It figures... you are always checking out the "birds" wherever you go, no? Gay bars, deserts, rugby pitches, Alaska, bathhouses... everywhere. Bet you the roadrunner is not the first big "bird" you have watched.

Birds. Great. Wonderful. Exciting. So where are these sling pictures?

What nice and lovely dinner party... Good pictures too. And I love the image of your goldfish with the deepest orange colour.
