Writing what? You don't include the text you're replying to.

Maybe Gene meant watermarked paper, matching envelope and his best
handwriting. Might be in your mailbox after the weekend.

Will it smell faintly of aftershave, or of grackles?


You're assuming Gene's aftershave and grackles don't smell alike.


It dawns on me that I have reached the age of 57 without ever smelling a
grackle. What do they smell like? This is something I have never
thought about before and there are no grackle in the vicinity to smell.
From this Wikipedia article, it is possible they smell like formic acid
due to their habit of "anting."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anting_(bird_activity)


I don't know what an individual grackle smells like, but hundreds of
thousands of them together smell like enormous mounds of ****. At UT,
in Austin TX, back in the 80s huge flocks of them used to roost on
campus every night, and the campus maintenance guys used to literally
hose all the sidewalks down every night, just to keep it walkable.

Eventually they deployed enough propane cannons and guys with shotguns
loaded with cracker shells to convince most of the grackles to move on.

ObBicycle: I clearly remember one bicycle that a clueless student had
chained right under a grackle tree. The top tube appeared to be at
least 3" in diameter, because it was covered in ****. No one ever
retrieved the bicycle, it sat there for months.

I guess that was an inclusive "or".

Something is wrong with this drawing. From the angle of their bodies and arms it looks like they are all rowing port.

Look at the two oarsmen forward of the Coxswain. Each oarsman has one
oar. Or count the oars. 8 oarsmen and only 4 oars on the port side.
