Did they look under the couch cushions? That's where I always find things I'm missing.... [Oct. 27th, 2006|10:12 am]

Federal, Tennessee and city officials, a SeaWorld team expert in rescuing manatees and others converged Thursday on a Memphis backwater of the Mississippi River. They came to save the poor creature, who has been seen hanging around in water too cold for it, at least 700 miles from home.

But when rescuers went to get it Thursday, the manatee was gone. They searched most of the day, then gave up, hoping for better luck Friday.


According to another article, the manatee is 8 feet long and 1,000 pounds.

You'd think something this big would be easy to spot, even in the Muddy Mississippi, but I guess not. Since manatees are herbivores, we can assume it's not out cruising the famous Memphis BBQ joints.

I love the sound of tuneless warbling in the morning...

I couldn't bear to listen to the one Jandek CD I tried. an hour + of Jandek live for $20? No thanks.

On the bright side, The Donny will be here in 2 weeks. They can't rock the show without me, ya know.
