    Sure. Capivara in Portuguese. They were all around my ex-'s house in the country. You couldn't get that close to those guys. They ran (or waddled) in packs of a dozen or so. It was eventually discovered that they were responsible for a tick-born outbreak of Lyme disease and they got eliminated (not sure how). I miss them.

    I have also seen them in total fearless mode, where they would congregate around the door in the morning hoping to eat out of your hand.

    Chupacabras


    a) Supper's Calling
    I wonder what's for dinner tonight
    If everything works out all right
    I'll be feasting

    So let's see what's for dinner tonight
    A treat below that beats with life
    It's calling, bleating, breathing, bleeding

    I sense your presence, smell you near - sneaking, hiding
    I hear your heart and feel your fear - flowing, moving
    Behold it soon will all be clear
    My eyes, shining: hypnotizing

    b) The Shepherdess

    You've lost control
    You've lost your way home
    Out in the cold
    You've lost your way home

    You've lost your way home
    You've lost your way home, out in the cold...

    c) A Brief History Of Truth And Beauty

    I will live again
    Up from the air of my succulent lair
    I will rise anew
    Into the wind I will move my wings
    I will feed again
    Drain to the depths with my clean teeth and breath

    I am beauty
    I am beauty

    Once for awhile there was light beside the dark
    Once long ago there was fire because of spark
    Secrets have faded, shadows have grown
    We are just wanderers whose path is unknown
    Unknown....

    I am free at last
    Take in a breath, there's no looking back
    I go circling
    Spying from high, I watch my prize
    I will wipe the sleep from red glowing eyes and prepare to arrive

    This is beauty
    (I couldn't ask for anything more)

    d) Chupacabras Stomp

    All that we have ever known
    Is seeking love and wanting home
    All that we have ever known
    Is seeking love and wanting home
    Creator
    I bring the gift of everlasting dream
    Creator
    I bring the gift of life between the seams
    I bring the gift...

    e) Get My Goat

    f) Study And Review

    Secrets have faded, shadows have grown
    We are just wanderers whose path is unknown
    The path is unknown...

    g) The Gift

    I will live again
    Deliver myself from waiting in stealth
    I will rise again
    Meet you alive on the other side

    I am freedom
    I am freedom, you couldn't ask for anything more
    You couldn't ask for anything
    Creator...
    All that we have ever known
    Is seeking love and wanting home
    ...unknown
    I am freedom
    I will free them

    Decided I deserved a few hours of stream fishing because I haven't been in a couple of years. Hit the jackpot with 6 nice-sized brown trout.

    Just fried up 2. Put the other 4 in the camp freezer. I love the brook trout but I don't get to fish for them often. Browns are good, don't care for the rainbows.

    Good luck with that Jake.

    My wife had cataracts removed from both eyes and then a torn retina in one. It's been a tough journey these 50 days.

    Once she recovers things will be good.

    It's the New Haven weekend from hell. Yale has its graduations and the parents are descending upon the city and will stand in line for hours at Pepe's for pizza because they heard it's the thing to do when they could go to Zuppardi's in West Haven and not wait and it's just as good But I direeees,

    It's also the weekend of the Freddie Fixer Parade which is normally good for 3 or 4 fistfights and at least 2 discharges of handguns.

    Also the State DOT in its infinite wisdom decided this would be the perfect weekend to do some paving projects on Rt 34, I91 and I95.

    Sarah saw the Omni hotel is increasing their rates to 500 dollars a night with a 3 night minimum. She says next year we're putting our house on AirBnB for this weekend.

    Oh, andI'm sure they'll be a protest or two... or three or four.

    What is the Freddie Fixer parade? I googled it but it just found links about when it is or about past parades.

    I think it's about community activism or something. Generally the parade just causes trouble, I think they cancelled it for a few years but I believe it's been back for a few years now.

    I think governments think every weekend is a perfect weekend for paving projects. There is constant, non-stop work being done on all roads, yet the roads are all terrible.

    You need to go and give us a full report. We're counting on you.

    Also, I need to try Pepe's and Zuppardi's some day.
