    Hang with the vultures at Chicagoboyz.
    Roost with the turkeys at Chicagoboyz.
    Sleep with the fishes at Chicagoboyz.
    Soar with the eagles at Chicagoboyz.

      Hanging with the vultures here isn’t all that bad:

      On those great sails; how beautiful he looked, veering away in the sea-light over the precipice. I tell you solemnlyThat I was sorry to have disappointed him.
      To be eaten by that beak and become part of him, to share those wings and those eyes–
      What a sublime end of one’s body, what an enskyment; what a life after death.

      Where did you take this picture?

    3. Michael Hiteshew Says:

      Odd that people would choose to rapel down the side of a building carrying buckets.

      Nate,

      It’s downtown Miami.

      Ginny, I liked Mr. Jeffers poem.

      I wonder what course it would have taken had he been taking a little siesta!

    6. Tyouth Says:

      Jon, “vultures” fine with me but all “good ole boys” I know refer to them as “buzzards”.

    7. Ginny Says:

      Good point Tyouth & sorry; belated link. Don’t know much about Jeffers but this was written fairly late in his life.

    8. Jonathan Says:

      Tyouth,

      Thanks. I used to refer to them as buzzards (e.g., here) but it seems that not many people use that term online, so I decided to go with the flow. Plus, it is my understanding that in European usage “buzzard” refers to an entirely different type of bird, so why confuse things. It is a no-win situation.
