A trip to Wal-mart and a Lanius excubitor

I had to go to Wal-mart today. My wife will attest, I'd rather get a punch square in the face than go to that hell-hole. The trip was made bearable by 3 things. My wife was the company and I saw a Lanius excubitor (Norther Shrike for those non-birders) and a Blue Jay. The rest of the day was spent indoors with the twins. Family time. No birds allowed.

  1. Walmart.....not punx!!! Kidding, kidding. So whats the soundtrack for the year?

  2. What did you see at Wal-Mart? I may start a blog that covers the horrors that place has presented me. 450 lb man in soiled track pants buying glossette raisins. Check.

  3. @ Seagull Steve. Wal-mart may not be punk, but surviving a trip there for me is harder on me than slam-dancing used to be. The soundtrack for Sunday was Howling Westerly Winds. Still working out the actual soundtrack but I'm making progress.

  4. @ Anto. The one in Bowmanville is the American style Wal-Mart. It's ten times the size of any other one. And the patrons are the same.
