Nice weather for ducks

A test of both Flickr and taking pictures in the rain. My Canon Powershot S2 IS (Flickr reveals all) is not waterproof. Nevertheless, I took a chance, trying to keep the camera covered until I was actually ready to point and shoot. (One reason I took a walk is my current weight: 66 kg, and only 1 pound away from "overweight".)

So on Flickr now is Ortuvann in a light rain, a first for me, as well as the European (or black) coots (sothøne, på norsk), shown above. (Much experimenting; this post made via Flickr.)

Heh. We weigh exactly the same.

One of us is fine, and the other is way too skinny.

Dang, boy, go lift some weights or something. (I should do the same.)

I'm workin' on it. I can't help it, I'm a skinny fucking Norwegian (Dane-Irish-Cherokee-Chicasaw-Mohawk-Frog-English-Scot-Irish-Jewish-Czech-&etc.)!

Anyways, as of today, I weigh 149. Extra muscle. Yay. Headed for 180 or bust. Should go faster when I quit smokin'.

Sheesh, you're more mixed up than I am.

Congrats on the 149!
