[personal] The mighty hammer of justice

Was out walking a tad after 3 am. It was freezing out there, literally, which is about enough to finally make me pull on sweats over my shorts. Plus five layers on my upper body, with hat, gloves and scarf. In very short order, I encountered the Mighty Hammer of Justice:

The mighty hammer of justice

...though really it was only a rubber mallet lying in the road. So I suppose it could more properly be referred to as the Neglected Rubber Mallet of Justice.

Shortly after that I encountered a large pig. The pig ignored me.

Speculation on a connection between these two events is left as an exercise for the reader. Still, it's amazing what you run into on the streets of Milwaukie, Oregon in the wee hours.
