That was an amazing sight accompanied by impressive cawing. I am thinking about changing my last name to Crow. Or Crowe, first name, Dewey.

I'm headed to Crow Wing County, MN this morning to work on a case. The County seat is Brainerd and I'm going to "investigate some malfeasance." I was up there in May working on this file and interviewed the Brainerd Police Chief[nice guy]. I refrained from a Margy reference since I am certain he is tired of them.

"Sir, you have no call to get snippy with me! I'm just doing my job here!"

Marge was awesome, but she does have a funny accent, ya know.

Sixty, You'll appreciate this. When I met w/ the Brainerd Police Chief last week to get some background on the shitbird I'm investigating we introduced ourselves. He introduced himself as, "Corky McQuiston." At the end of the meeting we exchanged business cards. I expected to see something like, "Robert 'Corky' McQuiston." But, his card said Corky T McQuiston. As I said, a nice man, and I guess we would expect a guy named Corky to be pleasant.

I was up there last May, not last week. Just keepin' the facts straight like Joe Friday.

"Say, Lou, didya hear the one about the guy who couldn't afford personalized plates, so he went and changed his name to J3L2404?"

No? Try this one on Corky next time you see him: "I'm not sure I agree with you a hundred percent on your police work there, Corky."

I changed the original "Lou" to "Corky", just because.

Makes ya think though, don't it, what kinda parents would name their boy Corky.

LOL! So many great lines in that movie.

"Hey Margie, how's the fricassee."

"Pretty good, you want some?"

The first sign of trouble in any good Western.
