This is our local watch and clock shop. My Grandpa owned a jewelry store, and when I was a little girl I used to love to go to the store and see the watch repairman fix watches. He sat behind glass in a little booth, on a stool and would look through a jeweler's loop. This store reminds me a bit of my Grandpa's store (which is now owned by my cousin - if you are in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, stop by Gerster Jewelers!)

Nope - these are American Coots. Coots are often mistaken for ducks, but they are actually members of the rail family and don't even have webbed feet.
One thing that distinguishes coots from ducks at first glance is their chicken-like, hard beak instead of a bill. This helps them grab plants and other food and tear it into pieces. Coots are mostly vegetarian, but are also known to eat some snails, insects, tadpoles, or crustaceans.

The bomb squad showed up at the fire station across from our church... during church. Many police cars blocked the roads leading to the fire station. Many police and fire trucks were on standby. Many fire fighters, police and bomb squad people (?) were there too.
Turns out that someone had purchased a device from an estate sale and brought it to the fire station out of caution.
Firefighters took the device to a vacant lot nearby and called on the department's Bomb Squad to investigate.
Upon further investigation, they realized the device was a World War II training bazooka rocket. They also determined it was harmless, since there were no explosives inside because it was a training round.

It isn't as if we don't know what umbrellas are here in San Diego. We just generally only need to use them for sun. Sunbrellas?
Check what other umbrellas look like all over the CDP world
