water, sun, medical waste and one very happy ox

My ad for the Texas Gulf Coast: “Breathe the salty air! Ride the breaking waves! Feel the warm sun! Just don’t step on the syringes, toxic waste or dead jellyfish. Oh, and watch out for Hummers doing 50 down the beach, ’cause it’s legal.”

brown pelicans (“just like in Nemo!” “That’s right, honey.”)

I think I should start a gallery of “Blue Kissing Animals” pictures

You can take the Ox out of the water, but you can’t take the water out of the Ox. Or something.

    Forget the kissing animals series — I want to know how you make multicolored sails sprout from the back of your head?!!!

    And — which do you think is more evil, Hummers or the fact that they get to go 50 on the beach?

    Just a defensive reminder, as someone who did the annual beach clean-up until I got too crippled: Every single thing tossed into the water anywhere in the Gulf washes up on Texas beaches because of the currents. At one beach clean-up, 80% of the plastic crap on one of our log sheets was from Mexico. So, the medical waste may well be ours but may well not be. The solution? Support a government that actually has a foreign policy, and go to those beach clean-ups, they are WAY fun. And make a huge difference.

    Thx for the photos.

  2. It’s a magic trick, Mags. The sail-head thing. You should see it in real life.

    I keep walking down the gulf beach, watching for the inevitable message in a bottle from Poland or Antarctica. They say the trash is from all over the world.

  3. Holy shit, you have the haircut that contributed to me being institutionalized at age 14! Looks way better on you, though. 🙂

  4. I LUV the picture of your dog. Makes me feel like I am there, enjoying the medical waste too…

  5. The blog looks great and loving the articles. Keep up the good work!
