@MedfordRogues

Last night was opening night in Medford. The Rogues began the season as they ended last year’s championship season, with another victory. Most importantly, the beer batter on the Lincoln Potters struck out in the 1st, allowing fans to buy $3 beers early on.

Grants Pass patriot sunset

Only rarely do I get involved with politics on the internet, but here goes.

A few months back I was heading to a show at the Rogue Theatre, and there was an amazing sunset happening. As I was about to take a photo of it, I saw this yahoo come out of a liquor store and jump in his bright yellow truck. With country music blaring and an engine putting out far more noise than was necessary he crossed the street and into my shot above. Immediately, his tires screeched to a halt, and he turned his truck in my direction.

He pulled up to me with one hand on his steering wheel and the other on, I can only guess, a gun in his lap. He yells at me, “What are you taking a photo of?!?!” To which I pointed at the sky and respond, “have you not noticed the sunset tonight?” He cussed and drove off, probably to his trailer park to consume his new purchase from the liquor store.

Once upon a time, I’m ashamed to admit, I was fairly right wing in my thinking. I was a proud patriot like this guy (well, maybe not that bad). Then, something happened. I lived in and traveled to many other countries. I found out that America wasn’t nearly as “special” as my upbringing led me to believe. People in other countries were nice, had different ways of thinking, and (gasp) actually had ways of doing things that were better than those in the USA.

Zepparella at Howiee’s on Front Street (Medford, Oregon) setlist 5/10/18

Actual setlist was a bit different (at the end) than the one above. Clementine broke her snare after The Ocean so they took a break to fix it. When they came back they played Kashmir, When the Levee Breaks, and Whole Lotta Love.

Clark’s Grebes

Clark's Grebes

You can find dozens of Clark’s Grebes in Upper Klamath Lake this time of year. However, most of the mating rituals happen soon after they arrive in late April so it’s a little late to see much activity. Putnam’s Point is a good place to park and watch.

Here is a pretty cool video (especially after the 50 second mark).
